Coming to terms...


Last scale reading: 142.6 lbs

I don't know what my body is doing but I have fluctuated all over the place the last week. My belly has popped. I'm so not kidding. POPPED! Wednesday night I felt so bloated and icky and I made the mistake of getting on the scale. 146.3! I nearly fell over. It made me feel down the rest of the week. Of course my body adjusted and my weight went back down, but it just slimmed me....

So, I've made the decision to rid myself of the scale. I fully believe in daily weigh ins when you're trying lose or maintain your weight. For me, it was encouraging and kept me focused. I was never obsessive and it was a positive tool for helping me stay OP. But pregnancy is just weird. There's no exact science to it and I'm finding myself becoming obsessed with numbers, which is not healthy. A few good friends have talked sense into me and convinced me that my body will do what it's going to do. All I can do is eat healthy and stay active and the rest is God's design.

This week I worked out 5 days in a row! And I felt great. I did water aerobics 3 days, Total Body 1 day and a step class one day. I think that's the perfect combo. 2 more intense days and then 3 days of lower impact. I'm also going to start walking after dinner with the kids. It's so pretty out at night and still light outside after dinner. My rough goal is to be active 5 days out of 7.

I've found my ideal balance to be 24 points. I was gaining too rapidly with 28 pts. 24 seems to work. I eat that, plus APs, plus Flex. I also eat all my Flex.

It's Saturday and I've sorted my laundry and I have a total of 10 piles to wash. Dang it's been a while....

I just took some pics this morning. I tend to get bigger as the day goes on. I'm almost 7 weeks according to my last monthly period. Though I estimate I'm only 6 weeks since my ovulation day is later than most women. I think I'll embrace the earlier date for now so at least I feel justified in showing somewhat. :)
