Riding the Old Wave

I feel like I'm just on this pregnancy ride and I basically have to ride it out until I can get my head above water. I swear, everyday I plan to eat better. And every day my meals and snacks get progressively worse as the day goes on. As does my morning sickness. By dinner time I have the most bizarre feeling of nausea and hunger. But the only thing I can even think about putting in my mouth is always the most unhealthy option available. What is it about the first trimester?? I *think* I'm at 144 lbs. So, there ya go. I guess you can say I broke out the scale again. The good news is that about half way through a meal I become ill and can't finish. So the unhealthy options are only being eaten in half portions. That's good right?


I took Fischer this afternoon to Trader Joes and was determined to get some healthier, quick grab options. It's hard to go grocery shopping when you feel sick. Nothing is appealing and you just want to stop looking at food. But I forced myself to put my big girl pants on and just get it done. I got some steel cut oatmeal, granola bars, edemame, fruit, cheese, pre-packaged meals for lunch time, frozen stuff and lots of veggies. I HAVE to snap out of this fog and get some whole foods in me. I guess all I can do is keep trying. I'll be 9 weeks this week so hopefully just a few more weeks of this fog and I'll be back to my old self, but with a gut.

I'm going to take Amelia tomorrow to the Ymca and get a class in. Not sure what yet. I've been itching to run lately. I ran 3 miles last week (with some walking mixed in). And then I ran 1 mile on the treadmill before a Sculpt Class too. It felt fine. So I think I'm going to revisit a more frequent cardio workout this week. Taking that one week off for morning sickness has really slowed my momentum.
