Howdy Sparkfriends!!! I am BEYOND sorry for being SO far behind with y’all this year and the past couple months, really. I normally did my “writing” while at work, and it’s been swamped...and my life at home has also been swamped, so I’ve had little time to survive and write to y’all!
Well, I suppose the best place to start is to say I’ve really not been doing any sort of “tracking” at all lately. I’m trying to be mostly reasonable most of the day, but as I announced on my Sparkfeed, I’m pregnant! Which is so exciting! As of right now, halfway through and TWENTY weeks! Exciting, I know! I’m just trying not to be too crazy with what I’m eating most of the time, and being very forgiving. I’ve tracked some days and others not at all. Most others, not at all. I’ll get back on it probably after I’m done and also done breastfeeding (where I hear that I’ll be eating tons more), but I’ll try to be reasonable. I use the food part of Sparkpeople to figure out caloric intake and other nutritional content for certain things, and I’ll probably jump back on that eventually. My first trimester I had a ton of food aversions so I just started eating foods I KNOW I’ll like more likely (like casseroles and such). It was tough, but I made it through.
I’ve been working out, though! Usually at least two or three times per week. Thirty minutes at a time normally. I’m trying to be gentle and yet keep as in shape as I am able while pregnant. Treading cautiously on not pushing myself too hard.
Y’all have asked about my food blog: it really no longer exists. I got rid of the domain and actually did a different one: wordpress.gatherwhiskrepeatblo
g.com . I’m not doing much on it though. I may scrap that all together. I’m just burnt out on it and I’m not much of a writer anyways. It became an obligation and a burden, so I stopped.
Life has been good overall! I’m sorry this is a shorty post, but I gotta start somewhere! I’ve been meaning to say “Hello!” for a while, so that’s what this is! Finding out the gender tomorrow and praying that everything is still going smoothly. Sending hugs to y’all!
