...just got back from my appointment with the nutritionist.
I disengaged within the first five minutes because she was truly obnoxious. She took three phone calls during our appointment, and they weren't quick one's. And on one of the calls, she totally breached confidentiality rules by giving out some personal information relating to a patient, with me in the room!
She started off our appointment by telling me that because I have some excess weight, and happen to be East Indian, I'm pretty much going to contract diabetes during my pregnancy. End of story. In response to my dumb-struck look, she said, "There are worse things you could have, so I'd be happy if I were you."
The rest of the appointment was somewhat similar, and I was staring at my watch, waiting for it to be over.
So, it stank. She basically told me that I'm eating "disgustingly healthy" during my pg (what a joke!), and that she has no recommendations for me. Really, none. Despite the fact that I'm vegetarian. Despite the fact that I sometimes lack variety in my diet. And despite the fact that I need to keep my weight in check during my pregnancy. I know that I'm not CLUELESS when it comes to diet and nutrition, but I was hoping for a little more guidance.
Oh well. The positive thing that came out of it, is that it raised a level of consciousness in my diet that has been missing for some time.
Other than that, the diet and exercise regimen has been going relatively well this week. There was a scoop of maple-walnut ice-cream last night, after dinner. And I think another minor offence on Tuesday. But all in all, mostly in check. Tonight, it's a 5K walk after my massage appointment.
I'm starving right now, though - so I best go and grab a snack!
