  • Primal Pregnancy Journal (Jodiemama)

    I started primal lifestyle in the middle of August 2011 and lost 16lbs in 2 months.
    So on Halloween I found out we are having our third child. This will be my first primal pregnancy.
    I eat full fat dairy products everyday and rice about 1-2x a week. I am hoping I can stick with the healthy eating and exercise. I am starting out with a lower weight than my 2 previous pregnancies. So here goes.

    Pregnancy length: 5 wks
    Starting weight: 172.6
    Measurements taken Oct. 17,2011
    Arms: 14in
    Thighs: 24in
    Hips: 43in
    Waist:36in


    B: Sausage + eggs, grain free pumpkin muffin, coffee with a splash of milk and 1 tsp. of sugar

    L: Mixed greens and baby spinach salad with 5oz can of salmon, sour cream and salsa verde
    Coffee, splash of milk, no sugar

    S: Handfull of popcorn, cheese stick, 4 slices of apple (at homeschool group)

    D: Chicken(cooked in the crock pot), Cauliflower (cooked in butter and olive oil), Spinach cooked in bacon fat with garlic and onion.

    Exercise: Chicken coop cleaning.


    So far only symptoms are mild queasiness and slight breast tenderness.

    B: Eggs with spinach and cheddar cheese
    3 slices of bacon
    cup of coffee with splash of milk and 1tsp. sugar

    S: Cup of coffee with splash of milk and 1 tsp. sugar

    S:

    D: (planned) Pork roast, potatoes, carrots and onion, broccoli with butter

    Supplements: None at the moment.

    Exercise: Elliptical 30 minutes
    Bodyweight exercises

    It seems that it would be good to limit myself to just 1 cup of coffee a day and minus the sugar, for health's sake.
    I will weigh once a week and take measurements once a month.
    I would love it if my arms and thighs continued to shrink as my belly grows. May be wishful thinking but it has happened to others.

    Measurements today:
    Waist: 35.5in
    Hips: 42in
    Thighs: 23.5in
    Arms: 14in
    I thought my pants had more room in them.
