I have two options to control my weight gain:
- Limit my sweets intake
- Exercise more (in a comfortable range of course)
Thankfully, whether I want to or not, I have to go up and down our stairs several times a day for LB's diaper changes and naps and to go to bed at night. I need more activity than that though. I plan on using a couple of my pregnancy yoga DVDs and I am hoping we can find a used recumbent bike to bring home. It's my favorite equipment at the gym and I have been unable to go to the gym in months because I can't take LB with me.
I have about 3 more weeks before I should even be gaining weight and I have already gained 6lbs. I am hoping with increased exercise I will have more energy and shed some of the weight I have put on these last couple of months. If I can work out for 30 minutes a day and cut down on the sweet cravings then I should be alright. What do you eat when you want a cookie or piece of pie?
