Weight this week: 124 lb. — up 2 pounds from 4 weeks ago!
Measurements around largest part of my tummy: 33″ – I’ve gained 1½ inches around my middle since last time!
Measurements around smallest part of my waist: 29.5″ — Waaaah! Another half inch up! Oh well.
I had a bit of a spotty week with my exercises, but I’m back on track! Hopefully I’ll be all ready for delivery like the exercise lady claims I’ll be.
In case you’re interested, here’s what I’ve been doing for supplements:
* SuperFood Plus tablets for my multivitamin. I don’t believe in synthetic vitamins, so I really wanted something that was made from REAL ingredients.
* Natural Factors Calcium Magnesium Citrate — recommended by the super-smart lady at the healthfood store. The SuperFood doesn’t give me enough calcium, and I want to make sure I’m not deficient.
* Folic Acid tablets from our local healthfood store. I don’t take this every day because there is some in the SuperFood and I get it through my diet, but again, I want to make sure I’m not deficient.
I’m planning on adding cod liver oil in the next few months to make sure I’m getting enough vitamin D in the winter.
I try to drink at least 7-8 cups of water each day. I find it’s really handy to fill up a jug at the beginning of the day and make sure I finish it by the end. As I gain weight, I plan on increasing the amount of water I drink.
And there’s my 20 weeks update.
Have a lovely day!
