Tonight we are having steak (had a craving), steamed brocoli, and mini potatoes (told ya I was craving them big time). Pretty simple, but I worked all day and didn't want to be a chef tonight.

Yesterday was a good eating day, but I had some bad nausea in the afternoon.

For breakfast I ate just yogurt and a peach. But for lunch we went to a Thai restaurant because I was craving their Spicy Thai noodles with shrimp. It is so yummy and basically glass noodles, fresh coriander, fresh Thai basil, veggies, and hot spicy goodness. I also had a small bowl of lemongrass soup and a spring roll (ok, two).

For dinner we ate steak again, mashed potatoes/sweet potatoes/cheddar cheese/garlic (divine), fresh beets, green/yellow beans, and yellow bell peppers (raw). All organic except the steak.

For breakfast I am having various cheeses (went shopping yesterday), raspberries, a nice organic gala apple, and a black plum. Yum, yum! I'm going out to a visit with a client soon that could lead to a long day, so I needed to fortify myself with anti-junk food in case that's all I can get later.

Tonight I am making a broccoli cheese soup for dinner.

All these good eats and I still haven't put on more than 2-3 pounds!

Oh boy... yesterday I had a booth at a trade show type event, and ate 'fair food' all day... fries, greasy sausage on a bun, etc, etc... but I also ate apples throughout the day and had a pile of veggies for dinner when I came home.

Today is my oldest ds's birthday party, so I am preparing lots of fresh cut up fruit and veggies to go with the inevitable pizza, and then of course the cake.... if I do berries and icecream with only a little piece of the cake, I won't feel so bad...

Last night we went to Oktoberfest at the Horse Palace! What fun! Polka bands and everything. Have you ever had fresh Ribbon Fries?? To die for! And yummy fresh chicken-dumpling soup and of course Bratwurst! I was in heaven and ds loved the dancing on the wooden dance floor.

This am, I made a fresh pumpkin - pecan pie and we had sweet potato homefries with bacon for breakfast. An egg-salad sandwich (from our own hens) and tonight smoked Cornish Game Hen (also our own) and salad.

I'm sorry -- I am a queen-sized Mummy so I am pleased that I am not getting more queen-sized. I'll be a bit more discrete at my delight.

Alls forgiven :P

Ignore me as I am just bitter. I have a newly prego friend (who is no where near overweight) who only put on 15 lbs for her first pregnancy (which shocker ended up early) and then just 20 for her last. She was going off on a tangent about women gaining so much during pregnancy and eating whatever they want. I seriously want to strangle her. I gained 55 lbs last time, but seriously ate way more healthy than her, for one thing I don't down mountain dews, but I digress. Feeling bitter about this...

For all my bravado, I gained 40-50 lbs with each pregnancy. It just looks better on you when you have a baby belly, and not just a mama belly!

I jumped on the scale today and I am up another 2 pounds....poetic justice, no?

I gained a pile of weight with my second, and vowed to be more careful this time but as of yet I have not been working out,and I"ve developed a distinct grabable 'layer' on my abdomen. It stresses me out, but I'm coping. Trying to eat well though, and to get out for a walk at least if I can't handle the gym.

Just started the day with strawberries and bananas, and english muffin with cream cheese.
It keeps me from feeling nauseous all morning, which is a miracle!

Yesterday:

Breakfast: oatmeal with honey, milk, and raisins
Lunch: turkey sandwich with everything (jalepenos, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onions, cheese, the works)
Supper: roast beef sandwich, 2 fried eggs


Today:

Breakfast: scrambled eggs with sausage
Lunch: grilled cheese sandwich
Supper: hamburger with the works

I have minor nausea, but nothing to keep me from eating! I love to eat, and go from not at all hungry to starving very quickly. I have strong feelings about what I'm eating, though. Some things I just can't stand the thought of, and others, I crave.

Lunch was a Spicy chicken Fillet from Wendy's complete with jalapenos and pepper jack cheese. I forgot to ask for the extra lettuce and tomatoes like I usually do I was so excited about the jalapenos!

Dinner will be whatever hubby cooks for me, Tues is his night. I hope he does better than I have the last few nights. Sunday I had nothing and went out and got him two Double Whoppers (ugh!) and yesterday I made soup, which he had to make toast for so he wouldn't starve to death. Oh, and Saturday I boiled up some tortellini and made a salad, that was pretty healthy.

Yay -- I must be easing out of the nauseous phase. Today I ate a large chopped salad with lots of veggies, nuts and edamame! I did combine it with a chocolate-banana milkshake , but I was pretty happy to be able to eat a salad! Also, I no longer crave McChickens (with the same intensity, anyhow...) I hope this means I am turning a corner with regard to food aversions.

You know, I tried a McChicken today to see if they were *that* good, and you know what? it really wasn't. I am mourning those calories that could be ice cream now! Hmm.... ice cream.... be right back!!!!

I'm so happy. For the past two days I've felt almost normal as far as eating goes. I haven't had to force myself to eat things and haven't had to burp them up for hours afterward. I sure hope this sticks!

I made a yummy delicious chicken caccitore last night and a chicken pot pie tonight.

woo hoo for chicken pot pie! That's what I'm making tonight... yum!

My latest indulgence... oh my goodness, I discovered danone danissimo mousse yogurt in lemon meringue pie flavor. I actually HIDE them in the fridge so nobody else can eat them. They are my new best friend!

I made a great shepherd's pie last night for dinner. Overall it was pretty healthy except I loaded on the cheese.

This morning, I had some Malt-o-Meal, gawsh I love that stuff, two pieces of whole wheat toast and some oj.

I've been snacking on pumpkin seeds all morning. With a Reese's Pieces thrown in there once in a while for variety.

I'm going to try to go for a side salad and baked potato for lunch.

Yesterday:
Breakfast: oatmeal cooked in apple cider, with raisins
Lunch: grilled cheese, grapes, apples
Supper: soft-boiled eggs with sourdough toast

Today:
Breakfast: blueberry/banana sourdough pancakes
Lunch: chicken noodle soup (chicken, homemade broth, carrots, celery, onions)
Supper: maybe homemade pizza, maybe something else. I think at this point, it's still a surprise to everyone, including me!

Snacks: crispy almonds, apples, apple slices with peanut butter, grapes, bananas, yogurt with berries

Chicken pot pie sounds delicious! That is always a big hit in my family.

I made an apple crisp snack the other night in the microwave. I found the original recipe on allrecipes.com and was a little skeptical that any form of apple crisp in the microwave could be good, but it was actually tasty enough that I thought I'd share.

First, I cored and sliced two apples and spread them out into the bottom of two small creme brulee type dishes. Then, I mixed up:

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons oats
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon

The original recipe called for 1/4 melted butter added to this, but I used 1/4 peanut butter instead and cut it in with a pastry cutter until it was nice and crumbly. I halved this mixture and spooned it over the apples in the dishes and baked it for about 10 minutes in the microwave. Yum.

Dinner tonight is homemade broccoli-cheese soup. Mmmmmm.

(Of course that partially makes up for the fact that at breakfast I ate a new Tim Horton's breakfast sandwich and poutine for a snack....)

Breakfast was bacon, cheese and egg croissanwiches.
Lunch was crackers and a hot cheese/tomato and WAY too much garlic dip.
Dinner is steak and beans and potatoes.... maybe. maybe just steak.

well, today was, how shall I say this... not the best nutritionally speaking!

I had cereal with apples and milk for breakfast.

I had (eating out) a chicken pesto sandwich and mushroom bisque soup and not one, but 2 big chocolate chip cookies, and potato chips. I can't stand potato chips, and ch.ch. cookies don't even sound good to me most days. Oh well...

I had leftover pizza and apple pie for supper. Both were homemade, but still, I've done better.

Tomorrow is a new day!
