Obviously being pregnant changes a few things around here for me. First off I need to adjust my daily calories. Prior to now I was at 1400 calories a day. This put me at a loss of 1 pound per week – If I followed it to the tee and did my workouts like I was suppose to. I changed My Fitness Pal to a maintain mode. This means I am no longer trying to lose weight but just maintain my current weight. I know later I will have to add calories for the baby but I do not need any more at this point in time. Changing to a maintain mode changed my daily calories from 1400 to 1660. I have been doing this for the past two weeks and I have to say that with the nausea I have been having I am not even hitting 1660 calories most days.
As of today I am 6 weeks 3 days pregnant. This is my weight.
This was my weight at 5 weeks 6 days.
I am sure I will start gaining weight soon but for now I am not worried about losing a pound or two due to morning sickness.
Currently I am on doctor’s orders of no strenuous activities so I am not doing any workouts right now. When I go back to the doctor in a week, I will hopefully be able to get back to some workouts. I don’t know if I will be able to run or not due the risks I have of miscarriage but I do plan on doing the elliptical and walking to keep getting my workouts in. I am hoping this will not be a problem with the doctor.
I want to stay fit for this pregnancy. I have worked way to hard this past year to just eat it all away. I can have a healthy baby and healthy pregnancy without going overboard. I am sure I will have my days of just eating everything in sight but I am hoping those days are few and far between my healthy eating days.
So far there is nothing healthy about my eating. I don’t have much of an appetite so I am not eating much to begin with. Nothing sounds good and when something does sound good it is usually something fried. That is all I have been wanting to eat is fried foods. The other morning we went out to breakfast and I ordered biscuit and gravy and fried mushrooms. Yup what a combo! LOL But that is what sounded good.
So we will see how things progress but for now I am trying to do my best to just keep food in me. 🙂
