Natalya - I was really impressed by your insight into how you were approaching foods. That's the kind of thing that I never noticed myself, but can recognize now that I hear it. I think I get that way with breads. It's been a long time since I've eaten dairy and stuff but I'd guess I got that way with it, too.
Midwestmom - Yeah. I was supposed to go out for dinner with a high school friend who came out to visit, but my nerves made me wait so long that we couldn't get a reservation. I was so relieved! I ended up making an E2L dinner for us and he loved it anyway, so that was good, but.... Sidestepping the issue, you know? We're going on vacation, though, next week, and I'm not sure what's going to happen. I think I'm going to bring my blender. I guess we'll be eating a lot of fruit and salad with nuts as snacks. A hard thing will be washing lettuce in the hotel sink. I hope they have prewashed at the grocery.
When I'm sick, I feel it is even more important to eat mostly fruit and green veggies. A week and some ago, I had a terrible cold or something, coughing up phlegm and head cold and sore throat and fever and aches and blah! It lasted about a week once it took hold, and then my 9-month-old daughter got it. I completely lost my appetite, though, and couldn't imagine standing up and cooking. I dipped to a somewhat alarming 115 1/2 pounds (5'7.5"). I'm back up to 117 now, though, which is where I've been for a few weeks now, and feeling almost back to normal except a little tiredness. I haven't been to the gym since I got sick, though.
A belated welcome to all of the new and newly returning moms, and continued success to everyone else!!
