I have been struggling with my cravings because I ALWAYS crave fast food, but the thought of my husband returning from deployment to an oompa loompa wife keeps me from eating it. So I try to eat balanced meals containing protein to keep me full & I drink as much water as I can (only to pee it out in 5 minutes when my daughter decides to karate kick my bladder!) No matter what I do it seems like any thoughts of eating "bad" food makes me gain weight! --> Which brings me to another issue: I always feel fat & faaaaaaaaaaaaar from sexy. However everytime I tell someone that I feel huge, they tell me "Oh stop! You're pregnant." I swear that phrase is so annoying because they tell me as if I don't already know. Even though I'm pregnant I still feel huge & I know for a fact that all the weight I have gained is NOT all baby (it's actually old baby fat topped off with NEW baby fat)!
With all my mixed feelings about my body I have managed to find some comfort in EA Sports Active. I started my 30 Day Challenge on Monday & OMG it kicked my butt! Yesterday was my rest day & after I finish this post I will be doing my workout for the day :) I set my challenge on medium (low intensity is too easy) & I modify ANY workouts that may be a little too much for my pregnant body. I think I am going to follow Jenn's idea & use my Wii Fit on my rest days to get an aerobic exercise. Please note that even though I feel huge, that does NOT mean that I am in any way trying to lose weight! I use EA Sports Active to get in shape which in return will give me more energy (to keep up with my 9 yr old & 2 yr old) and will help me bounce back faster after baby is born (at least I'm hoping it will)!
Before I end this post to go workout, I would like to thank Jenn (from The Coupon Coup) because she was kind enough to choose me as a workout buddy & provide me with my new EA Sports Active! We are perfect workout buddies because we are both pregnant with baby #3 & we both are super motivated to get fit!
However, I must comment on something she said in her 6/5/09 post:
"She and I are sharing many similarities in our pregnancies...both pregnant with #3 ... we are due just weeks apart from each other... and we both love our wii fits! The difference, I believe, is that she looks pretty in shape to me!!"
Oh no no no! LOL. I am far from "in shape" and besides you look great & you have gained close to nothing compared to me! No worries though...we have EA Sports Active to help us get in shape :)
I look forward to reading everyone's updates/progress! Visit you soon!
