On Track With My Goal!

As I said in an earlier post, I want this pregnancy to be healthier than my first. My first pregnancy I put on 70 pounds, and I was not in shape, especially for the labor. I'm happy to say, that this pregnancy, I am already doing significantly better!
Though my food choices can be worlds better, and my exercise could use a boost, I am still continuing to lose weight! I was floored when I stepped on the scale this morning and saw a lower number. This has me so excited, not only for myself, but for the baby! Also has me motivated!
There are some things I need to work on however. My appetite has been horrendous. Like most pregnant women, there are certain foods that repulse me. But it goes a bit further then that. It will come to be dinner time, and there is nothing that appealing to me. Even if I imagine a menu of endless possibilities, nothing surfaces. My husband one night was willing to make a trip to the store just to get a specific meal for dinner, and there's nothing I can think of! So more often then not, I have to just kind of force myself to eat something. Of course when its in front of me, I'm happy to eat it, but in the midst of preparing the meal, I am sick to my stomach with the idea of eating it! All par for the course I suppose. So I am hoping to some how begin to manage that.
I also need to solidify my work out routine a bit more. It's pretty sporadic right now, but I'm looking to start fresh this week and get it more regular.
Next baby appointment is on Thursday! Pretty sure I won't get to see the baby on ultrasound, but I will at least get to hear the little heartbeat!
My life is pretty boring, so not much to report!


  1. It is wonderful that you are eating healthy and trying to exercise for you and the baby! I am certain that this time will be different for you because you have the determination that it will be so!

    You are blessed with this little gift inside of you as well as the knowledge of being healthy will ultimately make your delivery even better!

    Congrats on still losing. I just hope you are eating!

  2. Glad things are going well with your pregnancy so far!
