I took a different brand of iron this morning. Boy, was that a mistake! I felt awful all morning, until my body finally ejected the offending stomach contents. (Another reminder of why I'd rather not be pregnant right now. Nine months of all-day "morning" sickness!) I will not be taking that brand of iron any more! Sure it's nice that it was only a dollar since it was prescription, but I'd rather shell out the $20 for the brand that doesn't make me vomit. Crucial to the whole effectiveness thing.
Breakfast: Two fried eggs and two small sweet potato latkes (cooked in ghee) with a cup of half-decaf and coconut milk.
Lunch: BIG today! (After losing my breakfast, my body was HUNGRY.) An Italian sausage, about a third of a chicken breast, a handful of cherry tomatoes, some sliced cucumbers and a handful of cherries. (Have I mentioned I love when cherries are in season?)
Supper: Smoky bacon-wrapped chicken breasts (yup, it's good bacon) with lightly-sauteed-then-steamed bok choy (in olive oil and loads of garlic).
Snacks: A homemade larabar-ish thing with raisins, prunes, almonds, coconut and cinnamon. Definitely a carby-er choice than I'd normally make, but my stomach was still feeling off from the iron, and that was what was appealing. And some cherries. Man, I love cherries.
Exercise: My first Zumba class! There's a drop-in class available at the local arena (which is about a four minute walk from my house) for only $5. I've been threatening to try it out for ages, but just hadn't gotten around to it. When a friend told me she was going tonight, I couldn't pass up the chance to make a fool of myself with at least one familiar face in the room!
