    Yeah whilst you can't "diet" exactly, it doesn't mean you can't still eat super healthy and exercise throughout this pregnancy- I hardly gained a thing during my last pregnancy, in fact I lost a few k's during the first trimester due to eating really healthy for the baby! By the end of it I'd only gained around 6 kilo's (which, if count the baby, placenta etc, meant no actual weight gain for me personally)It was only after the birth, maybe 2 months after, that I started to put on due to inactivity and poor food choices. Suddenly my post baby body just went to sh!t! Exact same thing happened to me with DS.

    today so far breakfast (I was staaaarving!) 2 pieces wholemeal toast with scrambled eggs (made using 2 eggs and light mik)and some tomato.

    Yesteday I forgot to update- breakfast- none. Lunch- leftover steak on toasted wholemeal bread, lettuce, tomato. Dinner- 1 wholemeal muffin topped with cottage cheese and tomato.

    There's a new cheese that I saw advertised today, it's called Kraft 'Live Free' (or something) and is like 60% lower in fat than other so cslled "light" cheese. Yum! I love cheese and am getting very tired of always eating cottage cheese, lol

    Today being the first day of week 4, should be update/weigh in, but I don't really count my first day as being the 15th Feb when this whole thing began because I had a couple of dodgey days there so made Monday 18th feb my official start date- so will weigh in and report back on Monday. Having said that, I am obsessed with weighing myself, I know it's bad but I can't help myself. I do it at least twice a day!
    Anyway- Week 4, day 1So far have only had breakfast, which was a piece of wholemeal toast with vegemite and a boiled egg. Exciting stuff.
    Back later to update......

    well it's later and here's my update:
    No actual soild meal really for the rest of the day and night, I just found myself having bits and pieces of stuff; a few spoonfuls vegie soup which was what DD left over from her lunch- a plum- 3 little ricotta and spinach triangle pastizzi's, 1 chicken nugget (just stole it from DS's dinner lol) and later in the evening I made a big batch DD's baby food to freeze in meal portions for the week and had a small bowl of mixed steamed vegies fom that.
    Right now I have DD's vegie patties cooking in the oven and I'll have one of those as well when they're ready because it's the first time I've made them so I have to taste test.Also had about a quarter of a choc easter bunny :-)
    Not sure how I feel about my eating habits tonight :/
    Tomorrow is grocery shop day so I'll stock up again on good stuff.

    Oh, and a glass of orange juice! I haven't had an orange juice since I started this blog and I craved one today- it was from a bought bottle, very high in sugar but oh well. I'm over drinking plain water or soda water. You gotta live a little! Whoa, hard core OJ!

    Do you make the Cajun chicken salad yourself? What do you put in it? I'm always keen for some more healthy meals.

    It's so simple to do because I cheat and just use a Cajun spice mix.
    I sprinkle over skinless chicken breast cut into strips and cook them under the grill and then toss them through a salad- put whatever you like in the salad- I just used the basics, mixed leaves and tomato, as the chicken gives all of the yumminess anyway! It was literally that easy and was probably the tastiest meal I've had all week

    Today's eats:

    Breakfast- 2 weetbix with light milk and a handful of pitted cherries

    snack- banana

    Lunch- same as yesterday but used wholemeal toast instead of the muffin- I've realised that this meal fills me up and keeps me full for the whole afternoon and evening- for dinner I only feel like something very light after having the baked beans on toast for lunch. I'm going to make this a regular lunch meal I think I also jazzed it up with some sweet chili sauce. Yum!

    Dinner- 2 Ryvita biscuits with cottage cheese, lettuce and tomato. Also had a chicken drumstick with honey soy marinade- didn't plan on it but had made them for DS's dinner and there was 1 extra, so.... It was skin on, too... so bad, me

    Weighed myself- happy to report that I am at least 4 kilos down!
    I say at least because I don't have a digital scale but I can see that I'm a little over 4 kilos lost, not sure how many grams over.
    I'm really not surprised because I've really cut back (to pretty much zero) on everything high in sugar/fat/carbs and have not even had a proper glass of soda (only very low cal ones or water/soda water), even cut out coffee all together because I usually take it with 2 sugars and don't like the taste with less so just eliminated it altogether. I've earned this loss!
    I was expecting to lose around 1- 1.5 per week so on track there

    Week 4, day 4-

    So far..

    Breakfast- 2 weetbix, light milk and a handful of pitted cherries....

    Off on my walk
