OB appointment June 20, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — labreeska @ 3:39 pm

I went to the ob today and they confirmed that I had indeed lost 2 pounds.  My baby belly is growing right on time.  My blood pressure was lower than before and everything was looking great.  The dr. told me to give myself a treat once a week to reward myself, but I’m pretty happy with the sugar crutch gone.

Breakfast:

  • 1/4 oatmeal, with 1 square dark chocolate, a little xylitol  (I couldn’t finish it)
  • coffee, 2 TB creamer  (I couldn’t finish it)

Snack:

  • a handful of blueberries

Walked 1.2 miles at the gym.  push ups, yoga stretching.

Lunch:

  • celery with Peanut Butter
  • cheddar
  • grapes
  • zuccini chips  (I sliced zuccini so thin, roasted in oven at 225 for 25 min.  with a little olive oil and sea salt)
  • 1 piece Ezekial bread
  • mango, papaya, pineapple smoothie

Snack:

  • pecans
  • dates
  • graham cracker

Dinner:

  • Steak
  • Grilled red pepper and portobello
  • Grilled corn
  • Sweet potato fries

Snack:

  • Large black bean brownie with cream cheese frosting  (made with xylitol, applesauce, almond flour)  It wasn’t really good.  Why did I eat it?  ummm….I don’t know.  The texture was perfect, but it just wasn’t sweet enough.  I won’t make this again.
