How are you doing tonight? Thank you for being understanding about my latest over-eating issues.
How do you like my title?
I went to my maternity visit today and got to hear the baby's heart beating. I see a midwife and she said the baby's heart sounded strong and normal. Always when I hear the baby's heart beating for that first time, it makes me smile. I smile because then I know for sure he/she is alive. The midwife said it sounded like the baby was moving around a lot.
I told the midwife about my latest three to four day over-eating debacle. It has actually caused me to gain some weight. I told her that I am not happy about it and that I need to slow it down. She, on the other hand, said that she was glad that I had gained some weight.
I explained to her that, yes, I know it's normal to gain weight when you're pregnant, but it should be "baby weight" not "binge weight". Ha, ha. a little alliteration there. I should gain weight with healthy foods not sugar and processed white flour foods.
I told her I wanted to go back on a strict diet for a few days to get the sugar and toxic stuff out of my system and then slowly start adding healthy calories again. She doesn't want me cutting calories, but if it gets me back on a healthy track again, I should do it.
I tried eating healthy today folks and failed miserably. Didn't I tell you this food is addictive? So...in a spurt of anger, I went through the house and threw out some unhealthy foods. But then I still went out and bought a scone at my favorite coffee shop.
Is that your head shaking or mine? Probably both.
Well, you all know my favorite mantra?
"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."
I really believe that. I really believe that if I try enough times, I'll figure out a way to win.
I also believe that I'm capable of doing things that I'm not even aware I'm capable of doing.
I believe that if only I would try...I will surprise myself with success in uncharted territories.
I believe that just because I've never done something before doesn't mean I can't do it.
I also believe that I'm probably doing better than I think I'm doing, and I try to not listen to the negative voices in my head.
I believe that I can be a "skinny" pregnant person even though I've never done it before.
I also refuse to believe that I can't look spectacular...
even while pregnant!
And you know what? Tomorrow is a new day!
Not just for me, but for all of us!!
Thank God for that!
I hope you all have a blessed day tomorrow!
