It’s almost been 6 months since I’ve been pregnant, and I haven’t exactly been too motivated to get myself back into shape. I definitely haven’t been laying around eating junk, but I also haven’t made a point to excersise regularly and make conscious good food choices. Honestly, I was SO hungry my whole pregnancy that I kind of got used to eating whatever I wanted.
So I’ve decided it’s time to do something for me. I want to feel good about myself again, which I know will have a positive impact on how I relate to my family. I’ve also been thinking about Grayson, and how we need to set a good example for him by the foods we choose to eat. We plan on starting solids in a few weeks, and of course are going to feed him the freshest, healthiest organic foods we can, so why should we not eat the same way?
I’m going to start with things that are easy- giving up my morning bagel for fruit and oatmeal, eating salads for lunch instead of a grilled cheese sandwich or leftover pasta, and making simple, healthy dinners. I also really want to excersise a little each day- I’ve been taking Grayson for long walks every afternoon, which we both enjoy. One of these days I might even get back to running- we’ll see.
We went to SmashBurger for lunch today with friends- I am considering it my last “bad” meal- at least for a while. Oh why does bad food have to taste SO good?!
