Found my Inspiration

Okay so apparently I have found some inspiration.  Being pregnant seems to be quite the motivator.  At least so far, we'll have to see when I get into the throes of morning sickness and aching back.  But as far as wanting to actually get my exercises done, it's right up there.

I've just finished my first week back on the 30 day challenge.  AND I've been doing pretty good this week with the GI diet.  We had a bit of a decadent lunch today, but I'm quite surprised that I haven't been cheating left, right, and center.  Could it have something to do with the prayer.  I happen to think so.  I knew I needed to lay all the cards out for my DH, I couldn't just hold this inside and not talk about it (and besides, he reads my blogs, I'm pretty sure he knew already).  So we had a good talk about it last week (shortly before the pee test, actually) and I asked him to pray over me, and pray over me often.  I totally noticed a difference the next day.  I haven't been panicking, I've been able to turn down food, I haven't always won the battle, but it really hasn't been all that...battle-y lately.

We'll see if it makes a difference.   Sunday we found out I was pregnant, Monday started the 30 day challenge again.  Started it with a weigh-in.  Ugh.  I wanted to not be so heavy the next time I was pregnant and it turns out I'm starting this one with 10 more lbs.  So, 191.8 last Monday, we'll see what it is tomorrow.  On the one hand, my jeans are fitting more like they used to.  On the other hand, I'm totally bloated and burping and being nauseous (but not actually throwing up, so no help there).  I'll let you know.

*I know you're not supposed to 'go on a diet' when you're pregnant.  They say that because you need to keep up a certain caloric intake for you and the baby to remain healthy.  Let me just say that for me, the necessary caloric intake for me and baby (which is not mathematically eating for two, btw) would be less than my previous daily intake.  And even more importantly, it was the type of food I was eating that was bad, empty calories.  So the way I figure it, I could eat quite healthily for me and Baby B, with all the daily calories needed and either lose a few pounds in the first trimester and then start putting on, or just not gain weight at all (you know, until the very end when the water retention makes my ankles look like tree trunks).  At least that's what I tell myself.  Stick around.  Feel free to take bets on when exactly Reality sneaks up behind me with a 2x4.
