All I know is I am hungry and it's going to take more than 300 calories to satisfy me! I don't care if 300 calories is a huge bowl of fruits and veggies, I am still going to be hungry an hour later! I have a friend who says, “Oh just eat 6 small meals throughout the day.” That friend does not have a job or child and has plenty of time on her hands to plan, prepare and then eat 6 small meals a day. It's a great idea, don't get me wrong, the problem is that I have a job and one that I am constantly on the go with. I’m an outside sales rep, I am not keeping 4 small meals in my car.
For me pregnancy has become a one-day-at-a-time process. I've said it before and I will say it again, pregnancy is so daunting! I want so bad to do the right thing throughout this pregnancy that I may be making it more difficult than it needs to be. I just want to do all I can to have a healthy baby. Judging by some of my friends who ate what ever they wanted and gained 50-70 pounds they had big beautiful healthy babies... and I suppose big beautiful healthy butts too. ;) I guess it all comes down to wise food choices and a decision of how much time I want to spend in the gym trying to fit back into my clothes.
