The second best part - gaining weight. For the first time in 20 or so years, my focus has shifted from losing weight to gaining weight. Even when I tried to be happy with my body and not worry about weight, it was so ingrained in my head that I still struggled with it. Now, after workouts, I have to remind myself that the point isn't to lose weight, but to simply reap the benefits of exercise. When I eat a salad or have fruit for a snack, it's about getting the vitamins the baby and I both need. It's such a nice mental shift. I hope I can maintain it once the pregnancy is over.
This week's food love - peanut butter. So good. I'm no longer interested in Jello, Fig Newtons or pickles. My cravings seem to go in a weekly cycle.
I did find a pair of maternity jeans! And guess what?!? They're too big - I don't have enough tummy yet to keep them up. But once I do, I will be stylin'.
