I’m going to keep a food and exercise diary for (at least) the next four weeks, starting today. I’m excited because I think the accountability will be really helpful for me.
So, about the title…
No, I’m not pregnant. But I am breastfeeding, and in my experience that feels much more like actually eating (and drinking) for two than pregnancy does. I ate normally during my most recent pregnancy and had a healthy 8lbs10oz baby girl after gaining 21lbs in exactly forty weeks (she was born on her due date).
After she was born, I lost the weight quickly plus several more pounds in the following few weeks. My current weight is 131 lbs. I am not dissatisfied with that number, but I am interested in making healthier food choices AND making exercising a priority again. I want to be more deliberate about these things…during and after breastfeeding. To put it simply, I want to feel my best.
For the next four Sundays, I’ll be sharing my daily food & drink from the week, as well as making a note of any fitness minutes I got in. I will evaluate how I’m feeling and what challenges I may have encountered, as well as goals I have for the coming week.
I will be taking some photos of my food but I’m not wanting to become obsessed with my eating, or focused on getting the perfect shot, so expect just a handful of pics. :)
