I have been living off of powerbars as of late. I want something that I can just grab and eat when I’m hungry. I really have to get back on board with eating. Everything that I wanted when I was pregnant I still want to eat – I was hoping these weird habits would go away.
Looking back – the first couple of months cooked vegetables made me want to gag. I eat vegetables all the time so that was hard. Soon after I really got into cheese, and butter on english muffins. I still crave that now. I ate at least 2 pieces of chocolate everyday starting around month 3. I allowed myself to have some dunkin donuts chocolate munchkins when we had breakfasts at school and even stopped to get some at least once on the weekends. I also indulged in bagels and cream cheese on our friday breakfasts at school. It felt good to just eat whatever I wanted. I drank TONS of milk all throughout the pregnancy and I’m still into it now. In the last month, I craved Great Harvest white bread. It is a bread store in Wayne that has loaves of bread that are amazing. I worked there for about 2 months in college and would bring bread and granola home – it was right before I lost 25 pounds for crew and probably my last straw!
Getting back on track – I think oatmeal is good for breakfasts for now, lunch I’m still iffy about so I’ll take any advice (veggie burgers are usually easy but kind of boring and probably give the little guy gas). Dinner has been whatever people have made us – lasagna, pasta – nothing that is super healthy. Time to get back on track!
Last I checked on the scale I was 136, so 5 lbs up from pre-preg weight. I’m still not focusing on it yet, I feel pretty good and I am pretty sure the weight is going to come off once I am in super training mode. I ran 5.5 miles yesterday all split up between fussing, napping and eating sessions for Nick. It was kind of tiring for the first time in a while.
