Hello Wednesday!

As I told you guys yesterday, food is starting to become appealing again!  I still have some aversions (anything greasy or too sweet) but for the most part, I’m turning a corner of wanting all.the.foods.  I love this part of pregnancy – the EATING.  I know two things about myself and food though:

  • 1)  Due to my eating disordered past, I won’t be a woman who “lets herself go” during pregnancy.  I just know too much about nutrition and can easily take this knowledge too far and become obsessive.
  • 2) Luckily, I’ve grown up a bit.  I have no food rules or food guilt in pregnancy.  If something sounds good, I’ll eat it (HUGE difference from the Lindsay of 10 years ago).  ….But always in moderation.

I feel like my approach to food (and fitness) has only gotten better over the years.  Some might look at what I eat and think it’s unhealthy or “bad.”  But I know better.  With a more relaxed approach, I’m WAY healthier than I was in years past.  Sometimes “unhealthy” is actually very healthy.

To that end, here’s what I ate yesterday (which was everything I wanted to put into my mouth – no rules – just being thankful for food):

Breakfast

038

041

Protein pancake (Plant Fusion Chocolate P.P + Egg Whites, topped with maple syrup and PB2)

Post Workout

Banana – unpictured and scarfed down in the gym parking lot.

Pre-Lunch Snack

051

Bagel Thin with cream cheese (side note: I HAD to have a bagel and made Travis leave work, drive to the grocery store and get me one.  Keeper.)

Lunch

052

Janetha’s Quick & Clean Chicken Noodle Soup (MAKE THIS!!  I added mushrooms but kept everything else the same.)

Afternoon Snack

020

Golden Delicious apple + sea salt

Dinner

053

Chicken Tender Salad (I only ate a bit of this – by the end of the day, I’m kinda DONE with food.)

QUESTION:  What was the best thing you ate yesterday??

    Gosh, do I know what you mean about “unhealthy” being “healthy”. Honestly, having a Wendy’s Frostie for lunch may be considered unhealthy for most people, but for me it would be groundbreaking. (I have yet to cross this bridge, by the way.) But I also know that, knowing what I do about nutrition, I would never just “let myself go”. It’s all about balance, yes? No extremes when it comes to our bodies. And it looks like you’re doing amazing, friend! SOOOO glad you’re feeling better and beyond excited for you!
