Weigh In Wednesday
As far as diet changes, I gave up candy February 13th and since then I have had only 6 wee Cadbury mini eggs. I had given up beer as well but that really didn't kick in like I thought it would until I saw those two lines on Sunday afternoon. Let's face it, I was drinking a LOT of beer so cutting that out is going to have an impact. I also won't be able to default to soda when we go out to eat because I have to limit my caffeine intake and I'm not really a fan of caffeine-less soda-pop. I drink minimal juice so looks like it's mostly going to be water and my two wee cups of coffee in the morning. If morning sickness kicks in though? It's Classic Coca-Cola for breakfast all the way (that's a wee trick I learned last time).
I'm trying to do what the nurse told me to do when I was pregnant with Casey and that is to have one meal a day be a salad. I stocked up on lunch stuff and healthy snacks on Sunday. Lots of veggies to enhance the pre-packaged salad plus a hard-boiled egg in addition to the chicken for more protein. Fruit and a handful of nuts for snacks. Drinking lots of water. Carbs have been cut way back as have dinner portion sizes. This week I've had bagels for breakfast since Monday but usually I stick with my tiny bowl of oatmeal to help my cholesterol. This weekend I didn't have bacon with breakfast like I usually do. My nerves are sort of shot and I have a cold so my appetite is pretty suppressed right now so snacking is minimal. And there you have it.
