I’ve been starving lately which means more snacking at work and then eating more out on the weekends. Normally I would be good and eat only half of my dinner at a restaurant but my appetite has grown so much that I can eat my entire meal with no problem. I’m surprised I haven’t gained more than I have in the past couple weeks, but it makes me nervous when I track my overall gain and it says I’m above what I should be right now if I want to aim for a 25 pound total at the end of this. Sigh. I’m going to try counting calories again and drinking more water this week to see if it will help even things out. I really need to get back on the treadmill again, too. Though, I do need to remember that this time last March I was just starting to lose weight and was still 20 pounds heavier than I am today.
On a more positive note, I’m loving my bump this week. I feel like I’m in a good spot – I’m big enough so that strangers notice but I’m not too big yet where I feel uncomfortable all the time. It’s tough trying to figure out when I want maternity pictures taken, though, because I still want to be a little bigger for those. I’ve heard sometime around 30 weeks is good, but the time that works better for us is 34-35 weeks. Not sure if I’ll be really swollen by then?
What I wore to work – maternity tunic & leggings from Motherhood Maternity Outlet, non-maternity cardigan from Target
