ok-so...i didn't get a chance to sign back in last night...i checked the scale this am even though I knew I shouldn't have-but it was down 2 lbs which was a nice boost!
dinner from last night
another turkey burger since i had it made already & was STARVING-I had made a bunch of them earlier in the day-some were little sliders for the kids. they loved that.
this time i measured out 1 tbsp of the heinz organic ketchup & it is actually alot so i think i am fine with under the actual serving on my burgers going fwd
steamed broccoli & baby carrots
i was extremely hungry last night. i ended up needing to cheat. I had 2 rice cakes with a very small amt of peanut butter on them. definitely not part of the diet but so much better than what i would have done before starting this. i also drank 6oz of skim milk.
i didn't get any exercise in yesterday but it is beautiful here today so after our 2:30 showing (our house is on the market) i'll go out for a walk BY MYSELF!!!!
shrink session time:
the diet isn't too hard (until after 4pm or so for me) but it would be so much easier if i were sleeping. i am getting about 4-5 total hours & never more than 2 hours in a row. DD2 is up all night. it's been several months now of it...there was a 3 day break a few weeks ago after 2 molars came through. but between teething & ear infections/ear fluid issues, it's been brutal. and some nights we just aren't sure what is going on. she just "whine complains" all night while tossing & turning next to us. the sleep deprivation is making me feel crazy. and we started watching another little girl who is really giving me a run for my money-hitting, pushing my 15 mos old, pulling my 3.5 yo's hair...in general-I feel like I am losing it! lol
I keep envisioning how amazing I will feel if I could lose this 45 lbs or so...how back when i lost 80 lbs years ago, i felt so good for years after it literally made every problem seem so much smaller...and maybe DH & I could even try & use that gift certificate for a local hotel my mom got us a year ago that we still haven't used. there is a pool & the certificate includes one overnight & dinner & drinks at ruth chris inside the hotel. how great i would feel in nice clothes again & a bathing suit.
ok-back to screaming toddlers... :)
