Pregnancy dieting


Not happening.

A friend and I were talking about this a while back before I knew (I think).  We were complaining about our fat you know whats and the things we ate while we were pregnant and maybe doing it different the second time.  It sounded pretty good when I was talking about it.

But not anymore.

I would eat the things on a meal plan just fine……….and then add 74 other various meals after 8pm to the plan.

Let’s face it, I’m untrustworthy in a kitchen or restaurant.  Or a highway where I have to pass multiple restaurants.

This is how my nights usually go:

ME:  Hey I think I want to make chicken pot pie tonight.

JOHN:  Okay sounds good.

ME:  (off camera sneaking off to Captain D’s for fried cheese sticks)

JOHN:  Are we still eating pot pie?

ME:  Ummm I’m not really as hungry as I was earlier….maybe just eat leftovers?


This is how tonight went:

ME:  So I got some pasta from Carrabba’s today and thought maybe we could eat it with salmon.

JOHN: Eh I don’t really want salmon.

ME:  Well that’s fine because I got the size to feed like 9 families full of pasta so we can just eat that out of the bucket it came in.

(I proceed to eat pasta out of the bucket like a homeless crack head.)

JOHN: (sees pasta bucket) HOLY SH*T how much did you pay for that MUCH pasta?!????!!!!!

My only real successes have been with crock pot meals because I get to smell them most of the day and nibble on them beforehand.

Baby 2.0 has taken over my brain cells, my bladder,  and my appetite.  I’ll approach 400 lbs pretty soon.  But I’ll be satisfied in my tummy.  And that’s what I “need”.

So here are some things I’ve decided I NEED to make in the magical pot:

  1. Honey sesame chicken
  2. The ultimate beef stroganoff 
  3. Bacon ranch and chicken macaroni (alright I just realized this is not for my magical pot, but I still want it)
  4. Crock pot cheesecake (WHAT????!!!!!!)

I’m SO hungry now.  Feed me.

  1. Yum, the recipes sound delicious! I am trying to rest during this pregnancy, so I am just eating things that are easy to make. But after the child comes, I will definitely try the sesame chicken!

  2. I had every intention of eating perfectly while pregnant, too, but something just came over me! I can’t help myself, either! So, I’m eating mostly healthy and letting myself eat what I’m craving even if it’s cheesecake or ice cream (or a family sized pasta bucket). 🙂

    • I want to eat EVERYTHING!!!! I’m funny about healthy stuff……the only healthy things I enjoy are fruit. I hate salads or anything in salads (ya know except the cheese and dressing lol)…and any other vegetable I will deep fry or load with butter or sour cream! I’m a mess!!! I’m just hoping that since pizza produced such a happy baby the first time, that a bucket of sour cream a day with the new one will make it just as happy. One can hope, right?
