I am also a worrier by nature, so no matter what the topic send my stomach in to flip flops. Anytime anyone asks about it I get the nervous butterflies and can barley answer, and I still have 3 more days! Can you imagine the shape I will be in by Saturday?
My friend Sara is coming though to cheer me on! I am so excited that she is coming! I know I will need the support! I did watch biggest loser last night and they ran a marathon. Without a real training plan either. This makes me more motivated. If they can do it- then I can do it!!
On another note. I am at work today, and there is a girl in the break room making a salad complete with feta cheese, cranberries, and almonds-YUM. Then another co-worker walks in and comments on how yummy the salad looks. The salad eater then tells her will you will have to wait a few more months before you try this. I am instantly confused? The salad on-looker says, “yeah after the baby is born I will have to try that.”
Now I can no longer help my curiosity.. “WHY?” I ask “well”, replies the salad eater, “you can’t have feta when you are pregnant.” I am sure I look like a freak as I demand again. “WHY?”
“Because, says my prego co-worker, “Certain cheeses aren’t pasteurized and they have live bacteria and could be bad for the baby.”
I am speechless… yes I AM SPEECHLESS.
I walk back to my desk and promptly share this with my cubbymates.
They think this is crazy as well, until I get this site:
This site tells me that I am not allowed to eat queso, or any other types of those yummy cheeses that are used to make up the fatty goodness that is cheese dip.
I have decided that I am still not ready for babies, if I am not able to sacrifice my love of cheese dip for my own child.
One of the other girls tells me that she thinks that have taken a lot of this stuff overboard.
I reply with a, yes, but knowing my luck I will eat some chips and queso, my baby will come out with 3 arms and I will bare a scarlet letter- C- for cheese eater! Everyone will know that I disobeyed the rules!
tough choice i know...
On a lighter note, I am all the way through Twilight, New Moon, & Midnight Sun (Edwards version for those of you who are out of the loop) I have started Eclipse, but I have had to use an extreme amount of self control not to get wrapped up in it cause I have so much to do this week.
So to my fellow bloggers- keep Kelly & I in your prayers on Saturday!
