Goodbye Mr. Yucky...I hope

I had my first dr. appt on Tuesday and everything is looking great with the baby. I got to see the little monkey and "it" was sucking it's hand...too cute. The last few days have been better since I'm feeling more energetic and less "yuck". I really didn't realize how off I was feeling until I started feeling better. The doc was really supportive of me running and said to keep it up as long as I want. He did tell me not to take up horse jumping or downhill skiing though...totally burst my bubble since I had dreams of becoming the foremost horseback downhill ski jumping momma out there (a girl can dream right?) LOL.
Anyway...
While I haven't been weighing everyday, I am weighing every few days. I'm finding it helpful. Now I am going to concentrate on cutting out the refined carbs again since that seems to be all I'm eating lately and I need more protein! Meat is still not very appetizing so I'm working on ways to get more lean protein. And I'm going back to the eating when hungry, not just eating if something sounds good. Someone thought it was a great idea to buy the massive tub of cream cheese when we were at Costco...who me? Stupid, stupid, stupid.
Today I am committed to getting in a run. The weather is nice and I'm feeling it. Do you feel the spirit?? Get out there and do something too! Now, I'm going to make some eggs...protein ya know. Have a great day!!!

*P.S.- My run was AWESOME! Pics to be posted soon...

Sorry that your dream of horseback downhill ski jumping will not come true at this point in your life. LOL! Glad you are feeling a little better. Go enjoy the day. :)

Hi Tiffany. Nice to read you and hear about how things are going..and how sweet that he/she was sucking on his/her little hand. So sweet..little babies....post a ultrasound pic if you feel like it! :)

That is great news about running. I think that will help you feel better and more energetic..and help with hormone issues (when blood flows during execercise...excess hormones leave the blood and can help maintain good levels which might help you not feel so blecky). Definitely get enough lean protein and calcium..and as many fruits and veggies that you can possibly eat. All good stuff for you and baby!

Have you tried greek yogurt yet? I mix 1 tsp of honey into mine (I get the plain kind) and it is SOOOOOO good...esp with a handfull of berries and a few almonds on top. Better than cream cheese..even better than (I swear) ice cream. Yummy!

Love hearing that you are taking such great care of your body and your little one. The hand sucking is adorable! So excited for you! I wonder how far along you will be able to run? You are doing great.
