Getting in shape before getting pregnant

Now that I am getting in shape and looking fit, I really don’t want to get pregnant

My husband and I are talking about trying for a baby this winter. I realized a while back that I was not in very good physical shape. Not only did I think it would be better fertility wise to be healthy, but I wanted a healthy body for my baby. For years I ate really bad and I didn’t work out. Now I am getting back on track. I was thankful my gym offers nutritional counseling. I really wanted help with what to eat and when. The nutritional counselor was great about seeing up a health program for me. I realized that I eat an alarming amount of sugar. I always seem to cram it into whatever meal. For breakfast I had yogurt with oreos in it. For lunch I had a smoothie that I tossed ice cream into. After dinner I loved to eat some sour patch or gummy worms. With my nutritional plan, sugar is severely cut. I also don’t get to have sides like tater tots, fries or chips. Instead I am eating steamed broccoli, rice, couscous or cooked carrots. It is not as tasty of a side, but I do feel better. Also I am doing a group fitness class three days a week. The class does a combination of cardio and physical training exercises. Now that I am getting in shape and looking fit, I really don’t want to get pregnant. My body is going to be the thinnest and toughest it has ever been. I don’t want to ruin that with a baby. I am wondering if my husband will wait another year.
