1. Road trips= weight gain for me. During my last road trip, I gained at least 5 pounds because I was eating out for every meal (those B&B breakfasts were amazing but it was way more food than I needed!), snacking along the way and not working out as much as I do regularly. Part of the problem is that I get nauseous in the car (pregnant or not) and the best way to make that go away is to eat. Great….
I decided that this road trip is going to be different. I did buy a few treats ahead of time to prevent raiding the gas stations along the way, but most importantly I took the time to buy healthy snacks for us to eat- carrots, apples, grapes, cheese strings, salami and crackers for lunches, and trail mix. The goal is to not gain tons of weight, although I do know a few pounds are to be expected with my growing belly.
Anything else anyone can suggest would be a good, healthy road trip snack/lunch?
2. Pregnancy brain is not a lie. I used to think that pregnant women used it as an excuse to be lazy (ok kidding…) but it actually exists. I have a pretty good memory but if I don’t write something down, I will forget midway what I am doing…. Crap, where was I going with this????
3. No workout last night. I had a splitting headache (which is odd for me) after work and had to cancel my dinner plans. I think the heat is getting to me. I don’t foresee a workout tonight either as I will be finishing all my packing for our trip!! I did get a head start on it this weekend so maybe it will only take me two more hours instead of four.
