Time for weigh in and measurements! I'm scared of the weigh in cause I've been eating poorly..and I was actually down a couple weeks ago to a number that I hadn't seen some before I was pregnant. I don't want to see the number climb back up, but I need to know where I'm starting from today. Here goes!
R arm 12.75 in
L arm 12.75
R thigh 23
L thigh 22.5
As for my diet, I'm going to focus on getting rid of extra sugar and carbs. I can't do a restricted calorie intake because my 13 month old is still breastfeeding a bunch and I'm not going to risk my milk supply. I will be making sure to get at least 1800 calories because of that, which is fine. It makes me hungrier anyway :)
For breakfast, I don't need to change what I'm eating except monitor how much sweet potato I'm eating. I'm going to start measuring-1 cup. I make a 4 egg omelette with 4 small turkey sausages and sweet potato cooked in olive oil. It may sound like a lot, but I do share with my daughter. She mostly likes the turkey. While making breakfast I drink a full water bottle-26 oz of water.
I've cycled on and coffee multiple times..right now I'm going to keep it some days. Baby doesn't sleep through the night. There is conflicting advice about whether coffee is good or bad with pcos. I don't drink more than 2-3 cups when I have it. I also found this unsweetened chocolate almond milk, which I like, but my husband isn't so crazy about. It's much better than nonchocolate unsweetened almond milk...but not as tasty as the sugary, of course. But that stuff has way too much sugar. This works for me and is the only unsweetened chocolate one that I can find.
This is getting long. I will stretch the posts out. I will write about snacks, lunch, dinner and fitness on other days along with how things are going for me on that particular day! It's going to be nice out today, so I think Hailey and I will be going for a walk and maybe out to the park :)
