eating well

I confess when my husband's gone I don't eat as well as I should. I get lazy. Real lazy. I find myself eating cold cereal for dinner, once I ate popcorn for dinner (Popcorn!)I knew I was making unwise choices in my diet but it didn't bother me much because I knew it was temporary and I figured I was allowed to be lazy and eat what I want when I'm alone.
When I poured myself a bowl of cereal for dinner the other day it hit me that it's not OK for me to be lazy and make unwise choices when I eat. I have a baby growing inside me, and growing fast. I read online that last week my baby was about the size of a sesame seed, this week my baby is about the size of a lentil and next week my baby will grow to about the size of a raspberry. AMAZING!
I have a responsibility to eat well, it's not just me that I'm eating for.
So I'm going to do my best to stick to my menu plan and eat well-balanced meals.
No more cold cereal or popcorn meals for me.
My husband is going to be gone more often the next several months and it's my duty to take care of myself and our little one yet to come.

We all struggle from time to time. When my husband is gone we still eat well, but I don't cook like I normally would. I just whip something up real fast. Its more fun to get "fancy" when others are around to enjoy it.

I came over to your site from Jamie's. This is my first time here!
