Well, it has been since April 22nd my friends. I have not posted a darn thing since April 22nd. And, there is a very good reason for that. I can't exactly post about saltine crackers and umm...well...PIZZA on a weight loss blog.
I am not going to lie, because I never do on this site, but I went a little street rat crazy during my first trimester. I had gone back on the Medifast 5&1 program to loose the 7 pounds I had put back on, and I was STARVED and most importantly NOT loosing any weight. I was totally freaked out because I had such an easy time before on the 5 &1. Well, after feeling like puking for a few days, and noticing my hunger and cravings getting stronger, I took a pregnancy test. And yup....BIG FAT POSITIVE!!! I was elated...and in my brain...liberated!! Something in my head switched back to the mode of entiltlement, and I felt like I could, and SHOULD eat whatever I wanted because for Heaven's sake, I was hunnngggry. So after three months of CRAZY eating, and a bit more rapid weight gain than I had hoped for, I had this horrifying dream Monday night where my Hubby told my OB/GYN that he was grossed out by my body and wished I would slow down with the weight gain. I woke up MORTIFIED. My husband would NEVER, ever say that, but I think it was a sign from the food Gods that I needed to reign it in! So with joy, I am back!! I have posted a few new recipes below that I hope you enjoy!
I am still using medifast bars, shakes and puffs as snacks 2-3 times per day. I will be using the 5&1 after the baby to get back down, so I just wanted to keep them in my diet. Plus, there are so many vitamins in the meals that it can only help this baby be extra healthy!! I do however have a calorie counting site I am using instead of the medifast site, I find this one much more user friendly, and I can use it on my ipod and computer!! Check it out! MyFitnessPal.com!!
I am excited to be back! I hope you all enjoy these recipes! Let me know what you think!
