Zofran= sanity

I cannot tell you what a lifesaver Zofran is. It's an anti-nausea medication and it works! I've been really, really sick for 5 days now. I just took a Zofran (thanks to my friend who had hers left over from her pregnancy) a hour ago and I feel like human again. Yesterday was a good day and a bad day. A good day in the sense that we got our new minivan. My husband took our wagon up to a dealership and lied to me and said they offered too little. Little did I know he was buying me my new van! He surprise me and I'm just over the moon.

The bad part was my on going nausea. I'm sure it gets a bit old listening to someone complain about morning sickness. I have many friends that have or are struggling to get pregnant. So let me say that when I'm complaining, I'm doing so in a very "bloggy" type way. My general outlook is not one of me being "cursed" or "oh poor Jen." It's just my experience at the moment. And I will say the nausea took away my fear of miscarriage that I was struggling with- so for that I'm so grateful. And yes I'm grateful to be able to have this peanut in me growing. :) BUT, being in the midst of nausea is all consuming. And that's where I was (well, up to an hour ago). And the weird part is that I crave total shit! I just want fried food, coke, chips, JUNK. It's the only thing I can stomach. And my stomach was growing quite rapidly. The last week has been a shift of eating wisely to eating frantically and poorly. Not to mention the fact that I have not worked out in a full week. I cannot remember the last time I did that.

So I woke up today (after feeling depressed at how extremely I had abandoned my healthy eating) and decided I was going to draw a line in the sand. I was not going to do this to myself again. Sure, I can lose the weight while nursing. But do I really want to feed my body this JUNK while I"m growing a baby? No. I was not going to let the sickness cause me to throw in the towel. I can't. After all, this blog is titled: "Quitting is Not an Option."

So here is what I had today so far. My mom is coming in town tonight so I can plan dinner with that. I could get a Lean Cuisine lasagna (the big kind) and make that. Yep, that's what I'll do. With garlic bread and salad. Easy!

WW muffin:3 pt

Mocha: 3 pts

Lean Cuisine pizza : 6 pts
Salad with Ceasar: 2 pts
Littel mac'n cheese: 2 pts


Lasagna: 6 pts
Salad w/ ff dressing: 0 pts

Total: 22 points

And as much as I don't like packaged foods....for now I think that's about all I can do. I'm going to try and pair it with fresh salads and fruit though. And once I'm up for cooking again, I"ll be making fresher meals. But for now, this is my plan. I'm hoping that the zofran will enable me to get back into my workouts. I may go to a body sculpt this after noon if I'm up for it. Or a walk...

Go with the packaged fairly "healthy" food items, girl! I know the cravings for chips, fried food and such; only thing to avoid it is making sure you have fast "healthy" options on hand.
And you're right; after this first stage of pregnancy you'll be back with fresh cooking...

Keep it up!
