Blah, Blah, Blah!

Yes, today was bad. It was a bad food day that started with BK for breakfast and consisted of more grains and sugar than I would have liked.  I blame the cravings for the BK.  I wanted hash browns.  I got them, and a BK muffin (it was pretty gross).  Yeah, unfortunately the hash rounds hit the spot.  I find that so embarrassing!

At training I had a Zinger, barf!  I also ate a part of a pop tart and a knock off Red Lobster biscuit.  Argh!  Yeah, like I said.  Bad.

I want to blame the pregnancy, but seriously I can’t.  I do think that the potato craving was related.  It is something I have craved with all my pregnancies, which is why I purchased three bags of sweet potato fries.  It would have been much better for me if I had called the bowling alley (which is what started the craving to begin with) and ordered an omelet and side of has browns.  Still conventional raised eggs, but real eggs cooked right there on the griddle.  Healthier option for sure.

So, that is all the super bad food.  I did though overcome another bad habit.  So many time I have used one indiscretion as an excuse to just keep eating junk.  Not today.  Today I got home and cooked the sirloin roast that we wanted to make yesterday.  Baked some of the sweet potato fries and left it at that.  I wanted to go and get some Cheetos, but realized that will only make tomorrow more difficult.  Biting the bullet now and saying, “enough!” was the right answer.  I am happy with my choice to move on now and not fall into the mentality that tomorrow is another day.

The best part?  Now I have a good lunch for tomorrow.  No worries there.   I like that.

I think I will have some ‘belly’ shots to post soon.  I am seriously hoping to just grow in the belly, and maybe help some of the extra belly disappear after baby comes.

Nothing But the Truth

So, here it is, the full truth.  I have been a complete blog slacker.  I have been so tired.  I come home from work, lay down and fall asleep on the couch.  I don’t cook dinner, I barely function.  What a life!  I am sure some of it is fromt eh junk, yes junk, I have been eating.  At one point though, it was eat what I could, regardless of what it was.

I knew that needed to STOP, quickly, so I put a plan into place.  I now have 3 bags af easy to bake sweet potato fries in teh freezer.  Hard boiled eggs ready to go in the fridge.  Quick foods I don’t need to think about  that make my tummy feel way better.  Keeping a bit of food in my belly all the time really, really helps.

Which brings me to this.  The whole truth and nothing but the truth.  We are expecting baby number six!  My first and probably only ‘primal pregnancy’.  I am so excited to get back on track and hopefully have a succesful pregnancy and birth.  I want this to be my healthiest pregnancy of all!

Our last pregnancy ended in the 24 week stillbirth of our son Colm.  I pray that this baby is our rainbow, born sometime this winter, alive and screaming.  You can read more about that here:  Keep in mind this deals with the death of my baby, so it is not really the most cheerful place to hangout.

So there you have it.  The first ‘public’ outing of this pregnancy.

Looking forward to blogging about everything that has to do with my Primal Pregnancy!

My first ‘real’ appointment is on Monday.  Hopefully we get to hear a nice strong heartbeat!
