Okay...so I have TOTALLY blew the no sugar/chips/cake etc... during the Thanksgiving festivities (which I had allowed for myself in my yearly splurge list-just not for the ENTIRE week...OOPS!).
To be completely honest, it has been extremely difficult not give into my cravings. I am still monitoring my caloric intake so that I am not exceeding the recommended daily amounts needed for pregnancy, but it is really hard to limit certain types of food...ESPECIALLY when you never know what kind of food is going to appeal or give you the creeps. That being said...I am going to trust that my body knows what it needs and go with what I crave as long as it is a practical proportion of food.
I will leave the strict clean eating regimen days for after Little Guy gets here! Hey this way of life is all a learning process for me right now...
Rather than limit more foods, I am just going to try and continue to practice cutting out my goals before (sugar, cake, cookies) excluding one treat a week - maybe this will be more attainable for an expectant girl! LOL:) By the way it IS December, Christmas Cookie month yall! I am just going to set my goal for the remainder of this trimester to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day to ensure that I am getting a variety of clean eating foods throughout the day and make less room for unhealthy snacking.
Some interesting information I ran across this week...

Next time I have some cool fitness info to share that I recently learned!
