I've been working out 3 times a week throughout this pregnancy. I eat well, a lot, but healthfully for the most part. More than I normally do but still no fast food, fried things, or creamy sauces.
Why then am I gaining 2 pounds a week, steadily?
It is too much. It is more than recommended. If far more than I would prefer.
I know- I'm pregnant. I am growing a human inside of me. Take it easy, I'll lose the weight when the baby is born. I was small to begin with. The breastfeeding will take the weight right off... I'm aware but it doesn't make me feel better.
Now that I burdened you with my pity party, I'll share my joy with you too...
As I am driving this morning, feeling sorry for myself and my growing ass, one of my favorite things in the world happened. I am peacefully going down the street and the impatient jerk behind me gets annoyed that I'm not pretending to be a Nascar driver so he swerves around me and punches the gas, his car screaming past me as he gives me a nasty, someone needs a hug (or efficient lady of the night) look.
Here's the good part. A couple moments later, maybe a quarter miles own the road the light goes from green, to yellow, TO RED right in front of him. So now the jerk that sped past me while making a point to share some of his ugly heart by glaring at me while shaking his head is STUCK AT THE RED LIGHT WITH ME.
It's the little things ladies. Happy Tuesday.
