WEIGHT WATCHER DOES!
Ok, that isn’t really what i’m going to write about but i’ve seen enough of the commercial that I can’t get it out of my head.
I don’t know anything about weight watchers, so just wipe that out of your memory. The first part of the statement holds true though.. at least when you’re pregnant.
If you’ve kept up with the blog during this pregnancy of mine, you know that one of my main goals other than keeping my blood pressure down is NOT to gain a bazillion pounds like I did during my pregnancy with Holden, because i’m just not going to have the time or energy to spend 40-some weeks to work it all back off again.
First trimester went well, I hardly gained any weight.. Hell, I think I came out even, but that is thanks in part to the vile stomach flu I came down with. Morning sickness might be a pain in the ass, but at least you’re puking up all the extra calories that could turn you into a roving landbeast down the line.
Lately.. no matter what I do, how healthy I eat, how much I exercise even though my pelvis is begging and screaming and aching for me to just sit on my widening ass and do nothing- the weight is piling on.
In fact, I think I may end up gaining MORE in this pregnancy than I did with Holden- and with Holden I shoveled goodies into my mouth on a daily basis and washed them down with McDonalds milkshakes.
Is that the key? Just giving in to every whim and stuffing your face and somehow you won’t get fat during pregnancy? Does your body decide it wants to play ‘Opposite Day!’ for 9 months and fruits and veggies are the things that will make your thighs balloon until you’re bleeding from chub rub and getting athletes foot under your boobs from sweating because they’ve gotten so big?
Not that i’ll complain if that’s the case.. but it would have been nice to know beforehand because i’ve been pretty much killing myself to be healthy this whole time with negative results.
Pregnancy sucks! I give up. Milkshakes for everyone!!!
8yo told me that Oct 31st is "national knock-knock joke day"- which means Halloween will henceforth be known as "The Most Annoying Day Ever"
@SassyPsychDoc "It seemed like a good idea at the time"
@SassyPsychDoc I fact-checked him myself. Someone was seriously sleeping on the job that day
Thought my 8yo was lying when he said that a male woodchuck is a he-chuck & a female is a she-chuck.Nope. If I have to know that, so do you!
Sometimes advice from our kids is EXACTLY what we need to hear. Been a rough few months & what my 8yo said hit home holdinholden.com/2017/10/winn…
10yo: What is calculus? Me: It's you + me = us Husband: get out. #oldpeoplejokes
