How NOT to lose the baby weight
Eat the following BEFORE NOON:
1 whole wheat bagel with low-fat cream cheese (Ok, so that's not too bad)
1 cup coffee with equal (again, not bad)
10 blue corn chips with roasted garlic hummus (uh, oh)
1 can of Cherry Coke. Full calorie. You know, because the artificial sweeteners in Diet Coke are bad for the baby. The baby who's been out of my body for 3 1/2 months. Yeah.
3 potato pancakes with fat-free sour cream (My mother is now opening another window so she can write me an email telling me to watch my salt.)
I was going to have a hamburger and fries, but realized I used the hamburger meat to make spaghetti sauce last week. I am very forgetful about meat these days. I preheated the oven Monday night to make chicken only to look in our fridge and freezer and realize I had not bought chicken. Nice.
Anyway, this weight was much cuter when it was all in my belly in the form of a cute baby-to-be. (see photo) And I'm going to Alabama next week where I will CERTAINLY eat BBQ. Probably twice. Oh, well.
