Happy New Year, to everyone!

I hope you had a fabulous celebration. I am a major grandma old soul, and was in bed by 10pm.  However, the dog barked ALL.NIGHT.LONG.  Was she scared of the fireworks? No. Did she need to go to the bathroom? No.  Was she bored? Yes. Oh my word, I was so irritated with her!

Anyway, the older three kiddos stayed up with Josh and rang in the New Year while Nora and I snoozed peacefully in our beds.

HCG is going splendidly so far!! *happy dance*

I'm down 5 pounds in 3 days, and I am absolutely ecstatic.  We had a New Years church conference, so the last 3 days have been really busy, which has helped a ton.  I was busy and not sitting around thinking about food. ;-)

I was able to stick to my diet, even while at the conference; I ate plain salad with turkey and an egg one day, brought some of my yummy bean soup that evening, and had more plain salad.  Today I took 4 hard boiled eggs... only I discovered they were soft boiled and nearly retched.  Even now, just typing that, my stomach is dry heaving.  Bleh!!! Slimy and gross.  *shudder*

Anyway, I ate the hardboiled bits on salad with dressing that I brought from home.  I'm going to have more of my bean soup tonight for supper.

I have been doing fairly well with my water intake, but it could be better.  I didn't want to drink a ton and be in the bathroom during the conference, cuz I needed to keep an eye on the kiddos.  But now we're home and I can work on getting more water in.

I've also cut WAY back on coffee, only having it once or twice a week.  I've been trying to drink more tea; Josh got me this DELICIOUS black tea with crushed raspberries in it, and I add a packet of Truvia and some fat free half and half.  It's really good.

All in all, things are going well and I'm looking forward to being healthy and vibrant in 2014.

I'll be back tomorrow with some of my resolutions for the New Year. :)
