20 weeks ! Time to crack down!

20 weeks already! I can hardly believe it!

I am very excited........and SCARED too! Scared because I am starting to get into the time in my pregnancy where I GAIN. I have been able to do quite a bit of cheating in these first 20 weeks.Mostly in my morning sickness stage. But now I am getting to the point where I am going to have to be REALLY careful with my cheating or else I KNOW I will gain what I don't want to gain!


Instead planning the rest of my PREGNANCY out I am just going to plan the month of MAY. One month at a time! :)

1.Start taking my cod liver oil,chlorophyll and herb tea more faithfully! I really want to keep this an everyday thing for the rest of this pregnancy. THE MAIN thing with this is to take the cod liver oil in the AM and make my tea right away so it is READY. The chlorophyll won't be so hard because it is easy to pour in a jar with my water and I LIKE it.

2. WATER-I have been doing good with water but I want to keep it up!

3. EXERCISE- 1 hour a day 5X a week. I tried to do it on weekends because it helps to counter SAT night cheating but it is SUCH a pain in the neck to try to fit in with everything else. Plus,I get burnt out. A weekend break helps me to stay motivated during the week. I want to do about 1/2 strength training and half cardio. The other part of this goal is to get it done in the MORNING whenever possible! Putting off exercise is one thing I am really good at and then it doesn't get done.

4. EATING- I want to not cheat PERIOD except for SAT nights or special occasions. Then,to recover from those times I want to do a whole day of FP's the next day. I eat PLENTY of fat and carbs and I am NOT worried at ALL about some FP's now and then in pregnancy so no scolding please! :):) 

So that is it for May..............

I will hopefully be 187 on June 1st! :) Right now my weight is still up but hopefully that will change in the next several days. Today and tomorrow there will be NO cheating but then Fri and Sat there WILL be because it is my birthday and then date night. I am going to do REALLY well during the day though so it hopefully won't do much damage!

I honestly forget what I ate yesterday but it was ALL THM.No cheating. I did not exercise though.

I AM exercising today! It has officially been a WEEK off of exercsie. Time to jump back in!
