Time for a Make-Over

Oh yes it is so time for a new look. For me and the blog. Did I tell you this coming week is spring break? THANK GOD!!! I need it. I want to sleep, workout, eat and catch up with friends. Aside from making Easter treat bags for the kids I shall do NO school crap. I am so sick of it. I had to do about 20 parent conferences plus open house and testing for the past 2 weeks. Sucky, sucky.

But, no more. Now it is time for MY life. Starting with working on this sad looking blog. It needed an updated look. Especially since I am officially done losing weight for the time being. I will still be talking about weight and health and exercise. Just not in "losing" terms anymore. I must admit, it makes me a little sad. Although I have pretty much just maintained my weight for the past 4 or 5 months it is sad to step on a scale and not anticipate a loss. The excitement is gone (but so is the occasional disappointment). I changed my ticker to a baby ticker. I will update you on weight gains but I will not be logging it on Fridays. Just too depressing for me. I feel decent and I do not want the numbers to change that.

I am feeling very lucky. Aside from being hungry and tired, I would not know I was pregnant. Thank goodness my boobs don't hurt (yet) I jump around in my workouts far too much. I am a super crabby person if I am nauseous (not a good trait in a teacher). But the tiredness when it hits is unbelievable. And the hunger. My god...it is like you must feed me NOW. I SAID NOW!! I have never known anything like it. I added 300 calories into my diet (some days it is a little more). I am reading books that say you do not need to add those calories in until the 2nd trimester. Holy crap! You try telling that to this little hungry grain of rice growing inside of me. Hopefully these extra weeks of extra calories won't harm me too much weight wise. My body feels the need. And alot of the calories are coming from fruit and cereal.

Since it is spring break I will be getting my hair cut and add a bit of color. Don't worry, I asked and it is safe. I only get a hair cut about every 4 months. I have not changed the color in well over a year. I do not want to do any blond as it reminds me of when I was my heaviest. My ma thinks if I go darker it will look bad. So I am thinking just some golden highlights. We will see. I usually let my hairdresser decide. After all, she is the professional. I am excited about it. Now I have to wait until Wednesday.

I look forward to catching up on blogs and relaxing. I hope you all have a super weekend!

The calorie recommendations are probably for women who haven't had a calorie defecit for as long as you. Most women who are as active as you probably need to eat about 2500 calories to maintain. I'm only five foot tall and can eat 2500 on my active days according to my super awesome Fitbit. That's probably why you are so hungry.

I'm sure it will be hard adjusting to gaining weight after so long of that being taboo. But hopefully you'll still be really healthy and the pregnancy will go really well! You're gonna be a mommy!

I knew I liked you. We have the same blog background. =) Anyway you are making a life there-it really does take a lot of energy at first. My energy always picked up by the second trimester. I am so excited for you and look forward to your updates.

Oh man I hated that pregnant boob pain!!! Ouch!! I'd forgotten about it until you mentioned it. Try not to worry too much about the weight...I know easier said than done. I look forward to watching/reading about your pregnancy. Hopefully my weight will be gone by the time you deliver!!!

Loving the new theme! It's awesome! And I can NOT believe I didn't know you were pregnant. I feel so awful! CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's so awesome!!!!

And I get you on the not posting about weight in losing terms. It's a strange shift, huh?

I am ready for winter to move on out. I love spring weather.

Congrats on the baby news.

Jenn said...

My boobs are hurting for the both of us, lol!
Don't worry about the weight, girl. If you're eating healthy stuff and eating when you are hungry, then you are doing everything right.
I cannot wait to get out of the first trimester so I can stay up past 8:30PM, lol!
Take care of yourself!

Congratulations!!! I can't wait to see pics of your new hair do, and hopefully you get your energy back soon! I made a similar post as you on my blog recently! It will be nice to have someone to compare notes with, in regards to excersise and pregnancy!

It'll be okay. Do keep a hold of your calories...but don't restrict them. I gave myself 'permission' to eat during my first pregnancy and gained 60 lbs...I gave myself permission to eat healthily and walk during my second pregnancy and gained 20 lbs. Second pregnancy, much smoother.

Congratulations! We just announced we are pregnant too! I'm going to follow you so I can see how you're doing! Congrats again!
