Dilemma No More

For the past 3-4 weeks, I've been struggling to fight my craving for desserts. It hasn't been easy I tell you!

The first few days I probably had what I think is a withdrawal syndrome. I got so exhausted just climbing the stairs! A small piece of chocolate later, I was myself again.

This one day I had a heavy dinner but ended up searching the fridge and cupboard high and low for something...and I knew what that something was. It's something I am suppose to cut down. So I kept on searching for an alternative. But there was nothing that tickled my fancy.

I was happy after a spoonful of ice cream and only then I stopped searching around the kitchen.

I also tried to cut down on rice and bread. Since I can't run away from those two on a daily basis, I only had small portions. I also thought it was good to ensure I don't gain as much weight as I did before.

The most recent visit to the doctor proved that my efforts paid off. I gained lesser than before. About average weight gain I suppose. Although I was targeting for a slightly smaller number.

But further check up found out that the little one is slightly smaller than he/she should be (-_-)

I was advised to rest more and do less walking. And make sure I eat well. Hmm..could my less sugar and carbo diet have caused this?

Or could be because my physical activities are somewhat the same as when I was not pregnant? I play with Raees like how I usually do. I walk to One Utama for lunch almost every day. The only difference is I haven't been out for shoots as often as before.

So now I've decided I will not control my diet too strictly. Eat what I want when I want but in moderation. Yes, that's what I'll do.

So over the weekend we went for a family getaway to Pangkor Island.

We had buffet breakfast and dinner. Boy, did I eat! I'm the kind who tries almost everything at the buffet..which includes desserts.

I dare not go on the scale. At least not yet. But here's another good news I found out today...

How cool is that?? I'm gonna try a chocolate diet after I deliver my little one. Who knew dieting could be so much fun?
