Gaming_Jeweler Posted January 30, 2016 Report Share Posted January 30, 2016 Alright folks, it's time for my 2nd pregnancy fitness challenge! I'm overweight and I want to have a healthy pregnancy. I need to take care of myself and my baby, so my goals will reflect that. Goals: 1. Eating for Two: Since I am no longer eating for just one person, I need to make smart, healthy decisions about what I put into my body. I have to get a good balance of vegetables, fruit, dairy, and protein so that the baby develops properly. I also need to watch my sugar intake due to my family's history with gestational diabetes. At the end of each day, I am expected to have eaten: 1-2 servings of fruit, 2-3 cups of veggies, 3 servings of dairy, and 3 servings of protein. 2. Exercising for Two: I need to workout a minimum 30 minutes of 3x a week. My current goal is to get used to exercising 3x a week for a few minutes and then work my way up from there. By the end of this month, I expect to be able to do 3 15-minute workouts a week. I will be alternating between yoga and walking for my workouts. 3. Rediscover My Love of Cooking: I used to love cooking. Overtime, I began to feel overwhelmed and grew to hate cooking. I actually stopped cooking for a long time. When I started eating Paleo, I started cooking for myself and enjoyed it. But I hate cooking for anyone else. I recently read an interesting article where families cooked meals together and it sounded really fun. It's hard to feel overwhelmed when you're sharing the responsibility. So my current goal is to cook 6 meals with my husband. 4. Have Fun: Sometimes I get so focused on what I need to do that I stress myself out. I need to take at least one day a week to sit back and have fun for a few hours. I can do this by reading, playing games, or watching tv for 1-2 hours. 5. No Phones After Midnight: I have trouble sleeping. There are several factors I can't control (heartburn, baby moving) but there are some that I can. I have decided that I am not allowed to use my phone after 11:30pm. I can put it on the charger but I can't touch it until the next morning. 2 Quote Level 6 Druid My Journey: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 Battle Log Photo Album Character Twitter Carry the sun inside you, and reach out for the dreams that guide you.
