Hey again. I'm posting again! (you ladies are so helpful).
I have recently (last 5 months) been dieting and exercising to lose weight. I have loss enough to feel great and now that we have started TTC, I am wondering how many calories I should be netting and if I should slow down my activity level to ensure a healthier pregnancy. Currently I go to the gym every other day (treadmill intervals and light strength training). On the other days I go on the stationary bike for a bit. I also cook, clean, and run errands all day (walking; don't need a car in NYC). I also have an active job; I'm a nanny.
I net around 1000 calories a day give or take. I eat between 1700-2000 depending on the day. My diet consists of lean meats, nuts, low fat dairy, veggies, fruits, whole grains, and egg whites. I have the occasional dark chocolate s'more (homemade) or other chocolaty goody (also homemade).
Please ladies I need your help!
