I’m a bit late posting, apologies – with the snow and ice, and a busy week, I’m not sure where the time has gone!
How did I get on this week?
I definitely did better at healthy snacking this week. My favourites at the moment are Nakd cocoa orange bars, Blue Diamond almonds and bananas – what do you like to nibble on?
I’ve eaten the right amount of calories and have cut the saturated fat, although I am probably still eating more than I should be. I still need to work on reducing the sugar, but I’ve managed to up my water intake and definitely feel better for it. My goals for this week are more green tea, and to keep reducing the sugars!
This has not been going well as I am suffering even more from hip pain, in fact my midwife thinks I have SPD and I am waiting for a doctor’s appointment. It’s actually really hard to move around at all and I’m getting quite frustrated. I hope to see a physio and try and get some tips for how to ease it, but I am having to accept that I may be very limited in what I can achieve until after the baby is born.
I’m really seeing the benefits of limiting my screen time in the evenings, though the SPD is not helping my sleep very much. I’ve also been practicing some relaxation techniques like breathing, and am really finding them useful. I’ve got two more weeks left at work before I start maternity leave, so my main goal is to keep calm and keep resting until I have some time to relax.
