First, let me admit these pictures were taken a few weeks ago, when my bump was less visible, face was a little less round and I still fit into my navy dress. I actually purchased this dress at the beginning of the pregnancy thinking oh this will last a while, well, not really. Pretty polka dots has already tightened up and hiked up over the growing bump, so until next time dress, until next time.
Seriously though, all talk of dresses aside, let’s talk about what I’m really thinking about all the time, food. Yes, I have all the proper training, I know how to lead a healthy lifestyle and make the right choices, but I believe in moderation and sometimes partake in cake for breakfast or a chicken philly sub with fries.
I went into this pregnancy with the mindset that I was going to be oh so healthy, drink tons of water, keep up with my workouts and be the most fit mom ever. Haha. Let’s just say a few months in, the promises have been thrown out the window. I am not the pregnant gal craving fruit this time around, although I still force down fruits and veggies daily, what I’m really screaming for is Taco Bell and fresh baked cookies. I’ve managed 2-3 workouts a week through the entire pregnancy so far and all weight gain is still on track, but my days revolve around the constant struggle of what I should eat, vs. what I really want to eat. Don’t get me started on the impending candy rush that is about to happen in about a week. You see, October is the one month that I have candy in my house, call it a ritual, but every October, I buy one maybe two bags of candy and hubby and I shamefully consume way too much sugar in celebration of the kickoff to the holiday season, funny fact is, we don’t even get trick-or-treaters at our house. My pregnant self is already giddy with excitement over this excuse to partake in candy.
I’m doing my best to let the what I should eat win more than that what I want to eat, but the struggle is real for this momma to be. So, sorry navy polka dot dress, it was fun while it lasted, but the bean burritos won this time around.
I love reading your comments, share with me, are you partaking in any guilty pleasures this fall?
