Well, it's been months. A lot has happened. My husband and I decided last April to try to get pregnant and I did. We had our daughter, Emma, on February 13, 2013. She's beautiful and I couldn't be happier! Weight-wise, I did pack on almost 50 pounds being pregnant, but luckily it was mostly her, fluid and placenta. I have already lost all but 10 pounds, which I am working on now. I am nursing, so that's helping a lot. I am sure I will post like crazy these last few weeks I have off work, but once I am back, it will probably dwindle as I spend a lot of time attached to an infant. I hope my followers are doing well. I miss blogging and all that. It just takes quite a bit of time, which there doesn't seem to be enough of nowadays. Onto important things. I can eat quite a bit more calories while I am nursing (500 to be exact). I don't eat larger sized meals, I just mostly eat more frequently.I have either an extra meal each day or two extra snacks. Today has been pretty boring food wise as I had to run out. I had scrambled eggs and homemade homefries for breakfast. Lunch was a slice and a half of leftover pizza. Snacks have been (and I am being honest-I know, shudder at the site of the rice crispy treat-it's only a 90 calorie one!) a chocolate chip chewy granola bar, rice crispy treat, garden salad with chicken, and Roadside Lemonade Nectar Protein drink. No pictures, unfortunately, as I wasn't planning on posting today. I will try to have pictures tomorrow.
