Back to life...

We just got back from a much needed family trip to the beach. It was divine! Warm sun, sand, ocean...couldn't ask for anything more. We ate some friggin yummy food! Fried shrimp, oysters, scallops, hushpuppies...... Good eats. I let myself indulge and just stopped when I was full. Worked well. I didn't gain this week.

I was able to take one long walk on the beach while I was there. My nausea was kicking in and the only thing that felt good was sitting in the shade on my chair. Walking in the sun was not something my body was willing to do. :) But one day I felt good and did it. So only a few APs earned at the beach.

I was able to hit the grocery store to get some fresh fruit and veggies in this house. I feel like we've been living on processed junk and take out. Blech. I need something with nutritional value! I keep waiting for the morning sickness to run it's course but it keeps popping back up. I think I'm going to have to push through it and cook my meals anyway. There is just something about feeling pukey and preparing meals that do not go hand in hand. Does not make for an easy way to stay on plan. But I gotta force myself to say no to chinese, pizza, and mexican. Those have been the running rotation for a while now. But my body and baby deserve better. And it's not like I can't have those things and still eat healthy. They just need to be the exception, not the standard.

Same with exercise. Nausea has kept me from my favorite place. The YMCA. I miss, miss miss the classes. I miss having energy and feeling strong. It's the polar opposite of the first trimester. But again, I think it's time that I set the pace and get myself back into the routine. Even when I don't feel like it. Exercise will only do me good. Fresh, oxygenated blood to the placenta and my brain. Energy. Better sleep at night. Can't lose right? Right. So I gotta pull myself up by the boot straps and get my pregnant ass to the gym! LOL
