I must admit, the struggle is real.... It has been so hard trying to change my diet.... Gestational Diabetes is NO FUN! I can’t eat what I want (anymore), I am NEVER full, I am ALWAYS hungry, I am so confused with what I can have and how much to have in my 3 main meals and 3 snacks throughout the day.... I have to check my blood sugar 4 times a day and I am crabby ALL THE TIME... Todays lunch was not too bad but I am still so hungry.. Bunless turkey burger (I ended up removing the cheese), with lettuce, avocado, 1/2 cup of strawberries and 1 cup of cucumbers.. #gestationaldiabetes#twomoremonths#julybaby#hardbutworthit#praying#strength#breakdown#moments#hungrymomma#help#thestruggleisreal 😫
#20weekspregnant and trying to be as good as I can be and feet the little one all the good stuff. Sometimes I'm better then others. Tonight was sour dough bread with avocado and tomatoes. Just gutted the ready to eat avocado was not as soft as soft as I wanted to make mash. . .
There are many challenges to traveling abroad, but I can safely say my biggest challenge of this trip so far has been making this teeny tiny cup of what I think might be tea. Watch my stories to see the struggle - it was real - especially after a really long day of walking. Let's just say the machine almost one this one!
I went to the store and had a conversation with someone I see frequently. We got on the topic of depression and other mental illness' and he says to me- "How is it that someone like you gets depressed? It looks like you have alot going for you." He's not wrong, but he gave me the opportunity to understand how it must feel for someone who openly admits they're depressed and to have someone ask why? I wish I could tell you why I can't get out of bed some days, but I still do. Or why some of the most basic tasks are insurmountable one day and a breeze the next. That's depression. It's about becoming aware of it, addressing it, and finding the best route to accommodate for it because the reality is that depression doesn't just go away. Like anything else in life it comes in waves so learn to better prepare for the early signs of another wave before it consumes you entirely and don't allow anyone to dim you shine! #mentalhealthawareness#depression#anxiety#thestruggleisreal#lonewolf#embraceit
