- i realize it's been a LONG time since i updated my blog, but since I've got pregnant since last summer I wasn't sure what to write. I still attend my monthly support group meetings at Hackensack Univ Hospital (and in fact, I plan on delivering in the same hospital that i attend the meetings). I've tried to stick to a healthy eating pattern this entire pregnancy & except for the last 2 weeks (which I'll admit - I'll been eating EVERYTHING IN SITE), I've done pretty well. I stayed away from white carbs, breads, pasta, rice & all high sugary foods. I also stuck to DECAF when it came to iced coffee (I'm a diehard Starbuck GRANDE DECAF SUGAR FREE HAZELNUT SOY ICED COFFEE
5 days a week). On the weekend I'm usually too lazy to drive to Stbux when DD is a block away, so I get a SMALL DECAF HAZELNUT ICED COFFEE WITH 2 SPLENDA'S & CREAM
(they dont have Soy Milk & since I got preggie I've hated the taste of skim milk. Also all flavors at DD is sugar free, but not as sweet as Stbux which is why I need to add the 2 splendas). I also continue to read Eggface's blog & try out her recipes, which are really great! In fact, my family now ask me to bring one of her casseroles to any dinner event!
So far I' ve gained just under 30 lbs in total, which is really not THAT much. My nutrionist told me that since my BMI was at approx 26 prior to getting preggie, I should aim for 20-25 lbs total weight gain. Oh well.
Once the baby arrives, I'll be back blogging on how hard (or how easy...which is what I hope!) it is to loose the weight.
