Banana and pb

Friday Fire Bites

Pretty chill day…took Cole to school, came home, worked out, cleaned the house while watching A Baby Story on TLC, made lunch, took a nap, picked up Cole, went to El Chubasco for dinner, took Cole to Wendy’s to get a “frosting”, came home, put Cole to bed, visited with my cousin who was in town from Portland, and now I’m posting.

Prego workout of the day: intervals 45min and strength workout from Tuesday which by the way I got from this website  I figure the chick on this blog looks frickin awesome so she probably knows what she’s talking out!

Pre-workout snack: 1/2 banana and 1 TBSP PB  3pts

I started watching “A Baby Story” on TLC while I was on the treadmill and quickly became addicted.  One question…if you are a woman and have ever watched an episode where the woman is planning on having the child naturally, why in the H would you ever want to do the same?  Seriously, screaming women, praying they can make it through…um God answered your prayers by making the person that created the epidural. SERIOUSLY!!!

Breakfast/Post-workout: 5 pts

Cleaned the house and it took a lot longer than anticipated mostly because I was still watching episodes of “A Baby Story”.  Very distracting!  After I finished, I was craving a chicken salad sandwich.  I ended up making an apple walnut chicken salad sandwich (recipe in separate post) with a side of veggies and ranch.  Oh and the last oatmeal cookie.  10 pts

Aunt Sasa wanted to go to El Chubasco for dinner and Cole and I never turn down chips and salsa.  2 shrimp tacos, 12 chips (counted them out, Sherilynn made fun of me), 3 bites of Cole’s delicious quesadilla, and a coke zero.  17pts

P.S. I was trying to see if El Chubasco had the nutrition facts listed on their website, which they don’t, so I googled shrimp tacos at El Chubasco and my post from last week was the first result…I was super excited about that!

    Hi Cyndi,

    Congrats on your pregnancy! I just found out last week that I am pregnant with my second. I started WW recently and really want to stick with counting points on my own to at the very least not gain a ton of weight. I was just wondering if you are still eating your losing weight points and if you are just maintaining or losing slowly. I haven’t been to my dr yet, but I recall her saying with my last pregnancy that if you are overweight you can still lose while pregnant if you eat healthy. I would love to hear how you are making WW work through your pregnancy.

    Hi Nicole! Congrats on YOUR pregnancy!! It’s such an exciting time! Here’s my two cents…if I could have been better at sticking to my points when I first found out I was pregnant I think I would have been much happier. But nausea ruled my eating. I just didn’t care, I just wanted to not feel like throwing up. After that passed, I went through a move, living out of a hotel, a trip to Europe, etc so I tried my best but I could only control so much.
    What I’ve done now is switched my points to maintenance points. I don’t want to get out of the habit of counting my points because I will be in full force on WW after the baby is born. As for weight loss, yes you can still lose weight while your pregnant, but ultimately you’re going to be gaining weight so any weight you lose most likely will be gained back. What I’ve been trying to focus on is to enjoy my pregnancy, yes I hate that I’m gaining weight, but it comes with the territory. I’m trying to find the balance between being conscience of what and how much I’m eating and also giving into the cravings or not feeling guilty for having a treat. Exercise has been a big help for me as well. As long as I get some sort of exercise in I feel good and don’t worry if I eat 2 cinnamon rolls in one week. I also think of it as you’re going to have plenty of time to worry about losing weight, enjoy being pregnant! Good luck with everything and keep me posted!!
