Sorry for the sporadic updates. I really haven't done much about my weight loss recently. The main reason being .... (drumroll)...
I was a few days late for TTOTM and decided to do a pregnancy test. It was my birthday on Monday so I wanted to see if I could drink copious amounts of champagne or not! Turns out I couldn't. I had one glass to celebrate combined birthday with embryo-birthday-present and it made me feel quite ill. Who knew the best way to go off alcohol would be to fall pregnant? I always worried that I'd find it really hard not to drink while pregnant. Now it seems I can't!
I'm keeping it kind of hush-hush as I want to make sure the foetus 'sticks' before I announce it to the world. You guys are special, though, so you get the immediate update
. Anyone who also knows me on Facebook please don't announce anything there!
I'm now focusing on eating healthy for the mini-me. Obviously I've given up alcohol, but I've started drinking a lot of juice, which I would normally avoid because it's quite high in calories. Calories be damned, I want as much nutrition for the belly-monster as possible! Avocados and walnuts are featuring quite a bit for the omega 6s and 3s. I'm planning on finding a dietitian who specialises in veganism to find out what I should be eating.
So yeah, that's my update. Oh, and I've also lost 0.5 kg since my last update. Don't ask me how. Now that I'm eating healthier and having no alcohol it'll be interesting to see if my weight goes up or down in the near future. Not my highest priority, of course, but I figure if I can keep on the small side I can keep the baby on the small side too. My partner was 11lb when he was born. I really don't want to have to deal with that!
