I Need a Meal Time Makeover

Photo Credit : Real Simple

I really need to start making some better choices with my food habits.  I was doing really well at the start of last year and when I was trying to lose weight.  Then, things started to slide downhill when I got pregnant, between the morning sickness and only wanting sweet things I haven't been making the best decisions.  I have only just started to gain some weight (at week 21), but I don't want to push my luck.  I am up 5 lbs total right now, and that isn't a bad thing, we went to the OB yesterday and he was happy with that.  

The thing I am worried about now is gaining too much weight.  Being obese I shouldn't gain more than 20 lbs total (according to Babycenter).  It also says from week 20 on I should expect to gain a pound a week. So combine that with the already 5 lb gain plus the 20 lb, I am looking like I will go over the 20 lbs.  The doctor hasn't set a weight gain limit for me, but I don't want to push the issue either.  I am also scared that if I start gaining too much weight I might develop gestational diabetes.  I do not want that!

To try to combat the bad habits I have re-developed I am going back to the strategy I had for weight loss.  I am tracking calories and writing everything down.  I am not trying to lose weight now (though, I am tempted to ask the OB at the next appointment if that would be ok for me since I am obese), but trying to make myself aware of what I am eating.  I found some fun printables from "Your Personal Nutrition Guide."  It has boxes to mark off what I am eating, calories, water intake, exercise, and sleep. 

With starting to track my food again I am realizing that I am not getting enough fruits and vegetables.  This isn't the biggest surprise to me because I am not the biggest fan, but I know I really need to get more of them.  A couple of months ago I picked up a copy of Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food.  I love the concept of getting more vegetables into my meals.  I am not so sure how I feel about sneaking them in though.  As I was looking through the book there are only a few of the fruits and vegetables that they use as purees that I don't like by themselves, so hopefully that will help me eat whatever I cook with them.

My goal is to start sneaking the vegetables into our foods and then transition to just cooking the food and eating it without sneaking it in.  Though some of the baked goods and desserts look good and this helps make them healthier, so if they are tasty I might keep making them that way.  Has anyone else used this book?  What kind of success did you have?

I have Deceptively Delicious, though I haven't tried any of the recipes yet. I'm missing the key ingredient of a food processor. If you try it, let me know if any of the recipes are fabulous.

I can't get a vegetable to cross Luke's lips. He has at least tried carrots in all their forms and made a gag face on all of them. *sigh*

Jenn - Hmmmm. I will let you know if mine turn out! Also, I wonder if Luke doesn't like the texture? I wonder if you could get around the not liking the carrots by making carrot raisin salad? That is really sweet and not as dry.
