Doctors, glucose test, and the scale...oh my!!

Well I decided that I would write this little post to vent a little frustration (mostly at myself). I had my monthly doctors appointment today. I knew that taking my weight was first (I don't keep a scale at home so this is always a surprise). My May doctors visit I had only gained a whole 3 pounds since Jan. so I was thinking...hey...this is going to be a piece of cake. So I guess I jinxed myself because my appetite came back in full force and I gained a whopping 8 pounds at my June doctors visit. So that last appointment freaked me out and I started snacking on fruit and veggies instead of carb filled favorites. I guess I thought that small change would do the trick but when I went in for my July appointment today...BAM!...another 7 pounds! My goodness! So after that I had to guzzle a bottle of fruit punch flavored nast so they could take my blood an hour later to see if I am diabetic. Yeah, weigh a girl and then give her a bottle of sugar! What are they thinking? So I am officially freaking out and have decided that working out is going to be a must. Time to dust off the ol' elliptical (like I told you before I'm not much for the heat so going for a stroll in the park doesn't sound that good to me). So tonight I will me starting a daily workout routine with a light 30 minute walk on the eliptical followed by prenatal yoga (I bought the video after my 8 lb gain but obviously didn't think it was too urgent.) Fortunately Michael is super sweet and said that he would come up and lift weights while I did the elliptical to keep me company. He is always so encouraging and sweet. Everyone tells me not to worry but I do not want to be the size of a whale when I deliver this baby. Just pray with me that my weight gain will begin to level out to a more healthy rate of a pound a week. Ok, now that I vented I am off to the grocery store to by more fruits and veggies.

  1. Don't beat yourself up! If your craving something eat it!... just maybe not the whole package :) I used to dring a 1/2 gallon of orange juice and eat 2 grilled cheese sandwiches in the morning, not particularly healthy, but I just couldn't get enough. You look great!
