Packed PB&J for lunch, ended up with french fries instead
 
Lunch is the hardest thing for me to decide on these days. I don't have the energy to prepare something healthy to bring since I go to bed at the same time as my 3 year old (7:30 LOL when I don't get home until 6) I had a PB&J sandwich packed to eat for lunch, I was sitting at my desk and I smelled something really good but couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Went down to the Cafe at lunch and couldn't figure out what it was, nothing looked as good as what i was smelling sooooo i ended up with french fries and a cupcake. :o

I want to be healthy so badly but it's soooooo hard!!!!

What really sounds yummy is a buffalo chicken wrap. I get ole tortilla's (low carb, high fiber), chicken with some buffalo sauce on it, cream cheese, feta cheese crumbles, a slice of romaine lettuce and wrap it all up and it's the best thing ever!!! I'm just too lazy to make it!!!

Dinner lately has been oatmeal becuase my acid reflux is getting too bad at night, we don't eat dinner until about 6:30 and i lay down about 7:30 for bed. So oatmeal and a small glass of milk is what i've been doing, just eating lighter for dinner helps a ton.

What all are you guys eating these days? :)

it is so hard to eat healthy when you are pregnant. I always have the best of intentions and like you end up with something not so healthy.these days I'm eating healthy to lose the rest of my pregnancy weight. I had a smoked salmon salad for lunch which was one thing I craved when pregnant but you can't eat smoked salmon so I had to wait until Christian was born to have some. I'm also loving tuna which I don't eat when I'm pregnant. I guess these days I'm all about eating things I couldn't eat when pregnant.

Your supposed to watch how much seafood you eat while pregnant because of the high mercury levels in them. Light canned tuna in water is supposed to be one of the better choices, lower in mercury, but even then I think your only allowed 2-3 small cans in a months time. There are websites online that tell you the mercury levels in each type of seafood but it was too confusing for me, so I just avoided it all.

Lately I've been eating a lot of chicken and veggies. I also eat oatmeal pretty much everyday. A cupcake and french fries every now and then wont hurt you or baby girl.

Mmm, fries and cupcake sound good, oddly so does a pb&j (I don't even like pb). It's so hard to eat somethings when your pregnant, you just do the best you can.

I eat pretty much eat the same when pregnant and not pregnant. Some days i am good, some I am not. Today, I had a bagel with lite cream cheese for breakfast, a clementine for snack, some of the leftover pasta casserole from last night's dinner and a salad for lunch. Yesterday, for dinner, I had the pasta casserole and a salad for dinner. Some nights we eat really healthy meals, others it's whatever. Doing it once in a while is no big deal, just everything in moderation...blah, blah :)
