I'm 31 and trying to conceive for the 2nd time. I already have a gorgeous 4-year-old son with my husband but we're ready for baby number two now. I've just come back from my GP who is requesting some hormonal bloods for me to check that area is still working ok but she has also recommended I lose some weight, I weighed 93 kg on her scales today - I'm approximately 5ft 2.
The motivation is there in my head but it's the act of doing the weight loss that I struggle with. I don't really exercise much at all, I feel I don't have the time. I work 25 hours a day in a desk job which not much opportunity to move around due to what I do. Once I finish my job i drive to fetch my son from his childminder, go home & then sit down for most of the rest of the day. I do some work from home & like to cross stitch. Most of the time I just don't feel I have the energy to do any form of exercise. Eating is also a challenge for me as I don't really eat much in the way of vegetables or fruit. I eat strawberries once a week, eat carrots a little and occassionally add parsnips to my plate. Most of the time my meal consists of fish or meat with potato accompaniment. I am now going to try and cut out crisps, biscuits and limit chocolate. Drinks - I don't drink enough, I tend to have 1-2 coffee's per day, a 600-700 ml bottle of squash at work and then sip from a bottle of pepsi or flavoured water through the afternoon/evening.
I'm wondering if there is anywhere that I can input the foods I like to have a diet plan/meal plan made up for me so I can stick to some healthier foods. I also think I could probably do with a diet/exercise buddy. Finding the time with my son is usually hard as after work I am always with him. I recently had my bike fixed but haven't used it as I don't have the free time in the evening's to ride due to being with my son.
Can anyone help/come up with any ideas at all?
