...to blog everyday this month. Who's idea was this? These people: NaBloPoMo
BUT I didn't sign up until today, the SIXTH day of the month. This makes me feel...incomplete...kinda dirty.....I should just get over and start writing I suppose.
What will I bore you dear readers with everyday? Depends....on days where there is something *worth* blogging about, the usual..adorable pictures of my adorable family. But if I don't have a plan for the other days, the *average* days then I will fail. So, in that case, I will blog about something I have been wanting to write down everyday anyway......a food diary. Why? 'Cause I'm gestating! I am confident that I eat a pretty healthy, well-rounded diet, but I cannot be trusted without some actual record. And I'd really like to know if I am measuring up--60 to 100 grams of protein a day, plenty of leafy greens...that kind of stuff. Especially since I am throwing out so many lame "rules" that I followed on my previous pregnancies--I am not taking prenatals (I don't feel they are assimilated the same as whole foods anyway), I am eating RAW sushi and RAW dairy (gasp!), and also partaking in a 1/2 glass of beer or wine here and there (actually I have only done this once so far but I plan on doing it again soon!)
So far today I've eaten:
Breakfast--scrambled eggs with turkey, sprouted grain toast, glass of water (usually I have fruit too but I had places to go and spaced it)
Snack--Spicy Thai chips! and of course WATER
Lunch--had a hankering for a tuna melt (tuna had red onion and grated carrots) on sprouted grain bread, a decaf chai latte
Snack--cheddar and apple slices, water
Dinner--split peas soup with carrots, hamburger patty with cheese and salsa.
Shoulda had more: fruit, leafy greens
