Well, today is my first no-soda day. I am miserable and cranky. I guess I was more dependent on the caffeine/sugar rush than I realized!

I have been RAVENOUS for the past two days. It's like I can't get enough fruit/dairy to be satisfied. My weight has been steadily climbing, I'm up 7lbs. from my pre-pregnancy weight today, so I'm trying to keep myself in check. Apparently, baby has other ideas. Over on everything today. :(

p.s. I REALLY want a coke:).

Hello extra 6lbs.:) I'm up from my pre-pregnancy weight by 6lbs. Which is okay, I think (everything is conflicting on how much to gain when, so I'm just kind of giving up on that one).

I've been eating like a bad person lately, but I really want to start to focus again. I feel really great (and have an appetite to match!) so there's no excuse for eating breakfast cereal like I have been.

B - 12oz. milk, honey bunches of oats w/almonds cereal + milk, 1 apple, 1oz. brie
S - 20oz. coke
L - 1 jalapeno burger (2.5oz. or so) w/2tbs. A-1 sauce, salad w/tomato, cucumber and red wine vinaigrette dressing
S - 1 cheese stick, 12oz. milk, 1 caramel cadbury egg!!
D - Outback w/my parents - 1/2 order chick on the barbie, garlic mashed potatoes, sweet tea
S -

Well, the plan was to do well today... didn't quite make it there!

It's funny, on the www.dailyplate.com website where I track my food, it shows my carbs as only being 73% of my recommended daily allowance. And my protein level is OFF THE CHARTS:). I wish I could change it b/c it irritates me to look at the red numbers for the protein and fat when really, I consider them low! Oh well:).

Not going to post for today, I started the day with a slice of cookie cake. And dinner tonight with Mom is going to be a cheat meal of mac'n'cheese & a milkshake. It's what I've been craving and I refuse to feel guilty about it.... okay, maybe a little:).

Over on calories, WAY over on carbs. And tomorrow is my 28th birthday, so I should eat clean (after the binge today), but I probably won't.

Good news is that I'm sharing the cookie cake with my co-workers, so it won't tempt me for much longer:).

Doing good today, or at least that's the plan! ---- plan backfired when a cookie cake three times the size of my head was delivered to the house:). Had a small sliver, but still. Also, didn't feel like fish, so made pork chops instead (hubby will appreciate this!).

Well, tracking food has really gone by the wayside. Mostly because of two reasons, laziness and I've been eating like a maniac. I'm getting quite puffy, so I really need to get my diet back on track.

S - 1 coke (16oz.) - WEAKNESS!!
L - 1/2c. white rice, 3/4c. jambalaya
S - 1 string cheese, 12oz. milk (2%), 1 fruit popsicle
D - 5oz. jalapeno hamburger patty (garlic, jalapeno, egg, Worcestershire sauce) w/A-1 sauce, 1.5c. grapes
S - 2tbs. peanut butter

Carbs = 184g (46%)
Fat = 60g (36%)
Protein = 73g (18%)

Need to up my calories with good food, not empty carbs. I will work on this (& I will just keep repeating this to myself until I actually do it!). Soda has recently become a crutch, so this is another thing I need to work on.
