How are you on this Monday? I'm pretty good. Had a lovely visit with my bestie Jen. She's blogging again, by the way. :-D
Josh and I had a nice night away at the beach. Nora was really sick with a super high fever, so we didn't get much sleep, but it was nice to just be able to sit on the couch next to my husband without 3 little monkeys jumping all over us. (We ended up taking her with us since he wasn't feeling well.) Saturday evening we had my sister in law and two younger girls come visit us for dinner. I made a huge chef salad, and only ate was was HCG approved on mine. After they left and we were watching a movie, I got the munchies BAD. I ate some Skittles, some gummy bears and some spicy almonds. Have you ever tried these?
Anyway, I stopped with that and went to bed, beating myself up that I keep sabotaging myself. Sunday morning rolled around and Joh had a DELICIOUS looking Asiago cheese bagel, toasted and smothered in cream cheese for breakfast. It looked/smelled SO GOOD. But I stayed strong, only had my coffee and then later ate some fat free cottage cheese.
We went to the outlets and did some shopping, mostly for the kids and Josh since I wasn't feeling the love and didn't want to try things on. I was also pretty nauseated from the milk in the cottage cheese. I have a slight dairy intolerance. We headed back around 3:30 and I wanted Burger King soooo badly. Josh had stopped to get a burger and it smelled so heavenly. BUT I didn't give in. I ate an apple.
The whole way home I was so nauseated. The milk plus being car sick was NOT good. As soon as I got home, I threw up. I know what you're thinking, and no, I'm not pregnant. ;-) I can't say I'd be disappointed if I was, though. :-) Babies are awesome. Being sick, not so much.
ANYWAY, so I threw up and felt better. Josh took the kids to their activities and I was home with Owen and Nora. I cleaned up, put the babies to bed... and went a wee bit crazy. I ate a bowl of cereal (Oatmeal Squares with almond milk), 5 mini Nestle Crunch bars and a bunch of BBQ chips. But I was able to stop there.
Oh, I guess I should fill you in... On Friday when I weighed I had GAINED 0.8!!! I don't know how or why, except that I had a LOT of coffee that day. So that started the weekend off on a hard note.
I was sure that I'd be way up this morning, and was seriously depressed. I've been doing HCG for 3 week now (loosely, I know) and I haven't even lost 10 pounds. WAAAHHH!!
But glory be, this morning I had lost weight and was down to just 0.2 above my lowest weight so far. I'm hoping that tomorrow I'll be down into the next decade.
I'll keep you posted! For today, I'm chugging the water and gearing up to STAY ON TRACK. I have to lose this weight. It must go!
MB-Are you saying you want to weigh 100 pounds!?!? You're crazy!! But I still love you. :)
