Accountability Time

I feel like I'm in this spot in my pregnancy that is very similar to how many feel after the holidays...I just can't use my waistband to measure it!

I don't feel like my eating is out of control, however I am physically feeling much different.  One factor (in addition to my rapidly growing backside....boys only show in the front WRONG) is that my energy levels are SUPER low.  Regardless of what time I wake up, I find myself DRAGGING by mid-morning and falling asleep on the couch by the time the kids need to go to bed.  Aside from this keeping me from getting anything done, I also have no time just to hang out with my husband! 

I know that part of this is pregnancy, but I also know that my diet must be playing a part in that too!  I haven't been eating out of control, but if I'm being completely transparent, I haven't said no much either!  I came to this point yesterday after being completely overwhelmed this weekend, where I know I need to reign it in.  I am healthy, yes, but I want this pregnancy to be healthier than it is right now.  In order to do that I am going to start by tracking my intake again...back to my good friend My Fitness Pal.  I am starting there to get a good read on what I am actually taking in.  From there I will make adjustments...first one being cutting the sugar WAY back!  I know the drill....I've done it before...and reigning in my sugar and fats now will only make things easier once our little man is here. 

Please read this correctly.....I AM NOT DIETING!!!  I am simply choosing to make better choices that are healthier for myself AND the baby!  I will be using Wednesdays to keep updates going so that I am not only accountable to myself but also all of you!! 

Any suggestions on how to reign in the sugar cravings while pregnant?


  1. I was the worst with the sugar cravings when I was pregnant! Maybe have lots of fruit handy?

    1. Sounds good! Glad to know I'm not the only sugar girl!!
