Nope not with the kids. This time it’s me! The problem is I just can’t seem to eat enough food. I have just been ravenous lately and it’s worrying me because the things I’m craving aren’t necessarily healthy. The good news is, I’ve been filling up on cucumbers, nuts, grapes, apples, things that are nutritious BUT… I still feel hungry so I’ve been adding in doughnuts, brownies, and just general junk. What is going on with me?! Obviously I’m pregnant but I don’t remember having such a fierce appetite during my other pregnancies. Even when I gained over 50lbs with Gabe it wasn’t like this (just bad habits back then). Maybe I have a parasite?! Lol. Last night we cleared out the basement and got everything set up for the kids to play, and me to workout. Tonight I am going to start my “Firm” again and hope that it seems to curb my appetite, or at least help curb my weight!:) Coincidentally, I ran across a good article on www.Babycenter.com while the kids were sleeping (no nap for mom today). Anyway, it offers tips for moms to get in shape and these are a few pointers: Keep it simple* Take the kids * Find a fitness buddy — or two *Set a goal *Keep it fun *You don’t have to be a jock* It takes a village.
I want to go back and read it because it has advice from super-fit moms on how they do it. Always nice to know people’s secret to success. Speaking of which, the Biggest Loser is on tonight and I can’t wait to see it! It’s a special edition episode and I just love that show so wedefinitelyinately camping out in front of the tv for that one!
