Full disclosure: I find these types of posts incredibly dull. Why should you care what I ate? Lol. But anyway, I thought I’d do one because I’ve been gaining weight so stinking fast lately and I think I just need to put it on paper what I’m eating and see if it’s me and if I need to make changes or if I’m really as powerless over my weight as I feel. So, here goes…

Breakfast: coffee with creamer, collagen powder and MTC oil

Late morning breakfast/lunch: spring mix salad with toppings (shredded chicken, avocado, carrots, peppers, feta, a little ranch dressing…)
Snack: 2/3 peanut butter and honey sandwich on whole wheat (shared it with Zane, hence the “2/3” 😂)
Snack: 1 slice of cheese pizza (Let’s be honest here, I didn’t need this snack. It just sounded really good.)
Supper: another salad just like earlier but also with some assorted crunchy toppings. Also, hummus. 
After supper treat: fruit juice popsicle
Snack: granola bar 
Snack: apple with peanut butter 

It’s almost bedtime and I’m so hungry again! 😖 I think I’m going to have some carrots and hummus before bed because I know if I don’t have a bedtime snack I will wake up in the night nauseated. This is a pretty normal day for me lately except I would usually have something else for either lunch or supper. Chili or chili spaghetti, beans with cornbread and greens, chicken enchiladas, bean burritos, chicken fajitas…. Those are some things we’ve have recently. 

I’ve been trying to have a salad for at least 1 meal a day several days a week. I’ve cut a lot of unhealthy carbs lately. I really want to gain a healthy amount of weight! In all my pregnancies I gain the most weight in the 3rd trimester, so I know from experience that I need to pace my gain. It’s hard though cause I want to eat all the things!! 😂 I need accountability!
