Hormonal

That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. Cry at the drop of a hat (or while watching GMCLA’s video for the Trevor Project & It Gets Better), weird crampy feeling in my stomach, and the insatiable appetite. I want to eat everything in the house. Good thing there’s not really any food, I’ve had a protein shake, leftover Chinese food, a couple of wedges of Laughing Cow cheese, and a grilled cheese sandwich. Oh, and some excellent handmade chocolate with toffee bits from my girlfriend’s trip to Napa a couple of weeks ago. Seriously though. It feels like my stomach is EMPTY. I’m now contemplating oatmeal and a beer. I need something to make me not hungry so I can go out after the baseball game and buy real food. Lots of staples to stock up on so I suppose I’ll spend some time trying to figure out who has the best deals this week.

Things I Won’t Be Able to Do…But Will I Miss Them?

October 23, 2010 at 4:57 pm (Randomness, Uncategorized) (, , , )

Getting pregnant means a lot of changes both physically and mentally for us. Mentally I’ll have to accept that we’re going to be responsible for that life that’s growing inside me. And sharing our lives with another person, having that person basically become our lives? It’s a lot to take in.

Physically? I don’t know how I’m going to adapt to another being inside me. Depending on me for its’ food and well being. I’ll be more aware than ever that I can’t eat the double quarter pounder with cheese and large fries. I won’t be able to start my day with 32oz of coffee with non-dairy creamer and splenda. Working out 3-5 times a week? Who knows if I’ll have the energy or will to do that anymore.

And I’ll have to give up beer.

That’s HUGE. I love beer. It’s my guilty pleasure, given how  I’ve started watching my carbs and calorie intake. There are very few things that throw off my diet like beer. Because I can’t have just one. Probably two or three. Yikes.  So today, in honor of the Giants game, I’m on my second Blue Moon.  456 calories. No more food tonight!
