I have been feeling like crap all day.  My stomach feels uncomfortable, and I'm just in a blah kind of mood.  I assume it may have to do with my junky food day yesterday.  I started out okay, had about a 1/2 cup of mixed nuts for breakfast and a 1/2 can of Campbell's Bean with Bacon soup for lunch.  But then when I went to work at 2, we had a carry in for a co-worker and I ate 3 small sugar cookies, tortilla chips and bean dip, pasta salad, some muskmelon, and some honey mustard pringles. :(  Yuck....carb city.  Then last night when I got home, I didn't want to eat anything because I felt like crap, but by 9pm I felt starved so I went to Burger King and got a double cheeseburger and fries!!! YUCK, yuck, yuck.  I drank only about 3-4 bottles of water.  I really need to get my water intake to be more like 10 bottles. It's hard.

On the plus side, I found out my friend at work who has been trying to get pregnant for 5 years, is finally pregnant!!!! :) Yay, I'm so extremely excited for her.  She has a child the same age as my youngest, and it's been challenging for her, she is eccstatic. 

By the way, my healthy lifestyle goals are due to myself being pregnant as well.  Only 6 weeks along, so I have told some close friends, and will tell the whole world once I'm safely past 12 weeks.  It's weird too, because I've had symptoms - extreme sensitivity to smell, fatigue, but my husband had morning sickness 3 times!  That is hilarious to me, and I'm greatful for it.  I've been nauseous a couple times, but no throwing up for me...maybe because I had my share with the first 4 kids.  My last pregnancy (8 years ago!!!!) I did not have morning sickness either, thank God.

I feel bloated, gassy, and just lazy.  I don't drink anything besides water but I was hooked on some energy drink packets by Visalus...they're packed full of vitamins but also contain a little caffeine and Rhodiola Extract - so I've been sluggish without those.

My kids are extremely excited about the possibility of a baby brother or sister.  I'm a bit concerned about my age, I feel like 37 is too old, and I thought I was done with my child bearing years.  However, I feel like I've been blessed with a surprise, and of course I'm praying for a daughter since I have only sons, but at this point, I'll be pleased with a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby at the end of it.

Today so far I've eaten an 8" Jimmy Johns veggie sub.  Maybe that's why I don't feel very well.  I ate it all at once, at 11:00 this morning.  I am no where near hungry still....I should probably eat an apple or something.
