Congratulations SunshineMeg/ Starting Diet Again

Hello friends!

Sorry I've been gone for so long. But my one week vacation turned into two weeks. Then, when I got home, I was knee deep in cleaning and organizing the house. So, by the time I got to the library last Friday night, I hadn't been on my blog in about three weeks. So, first thing I did was check two weeks or so worth of e-mail.

Then, with about three minutes left on the computer I looked at my blog.

"Hmmm, what's this? SunshineMeg wants me to check out her 5/26 post...

By the time I get over there I have literally two minutes before the library is going to shut down the computers, and I find out...

SunshineMeg is pregnant!!!!

Holy K-Moly!!!

Congratulations! Our family is so excited for you. Let me see...5/'re probably four weeks you add eight months and we're at late January or early February. A little winter baby!!

And I also checked out your recent posts to see how you're doing and your belly looks as flat as ever. Sounds like you were a little sick, but not necessarily from morning sickness. Maybe you won't have morning sickness? Of the six kids that I've had...I had morning sickness with every one of them except this last one. The only thing I did different with this one was to not eat any sugar, white flour, even wheat flour and processed foods.

But speaking of foods...I actually gained five pounds over that last two weeks while on vacation. That was in addition to an earlier five pound gain. So...starting tomorrow/Monday...I will be starting my diet again.

I will admit that I don't feel that motivated... so I will be incorporating my little tricks to get myself going on this diet. I will write down what I eat, but will probably "guess" at the calories for the first week.

I did a leg work-out last week, so I plan on weightlifting three to five days this week. And, because I took a few weeks off because of my vacation, I may not push myself too hard in this first week back.

There also is a half marathon late September that I want to train for too. I haven't run in four or five weeks, so I am literally starting from scratch with the running. But I have started from scratch so many times because of babies, or other reasons, that I know what to do. And, hey, what great weather to start running in!

Hopefully I am able to update my blog more than once every two weeks, Ha!

Talk to you all soon!

  1. YAY! I've been hoping you would find a minute to stop by an join us in our celebration! We are so thrilled (and a little scared) I am 2 months pregnant and due January 28th! A 2012 baby! I have been feeling okay baby wise, but I actually got sick for the first time in years. And by sick I mean I got strep throat AND tonsillitis together for the first time. It knocked me on my butt and I stopped working out for 2 weeks. I am just now on the mend and had my first workout tonight and took it easy with some elliptical and a few weights. I get to go to Cincinnati this weekend to see my mom for the first since announcing baby! I go back to the doctor the end of this month to see the baby!!! I can't stop smiling. We are NOT going to find out the sex of the baby. We're a little old fashioned like that = ) I'm so glad you know my secret now. I'm proud of you for starting over with the diet and not just giving up or getting discouraged when life gets in the way. That is what being strong is all about. Keep on trucking and we'll talk when we can. Take care of yourself and that family. Thanks for stopping by my blog when you have limited time. It means a lot.
