Today was my son's 5th birthday! Overall the day was good and we had a nice time celebrating as a family. We enjoyed watching him open presents. He was delighted over everything, but especially the Thomas the Train trains he'd specially requested. We went downtown to get specialty cupcakes (one each) which we took to eat in Railroad Square. We chose to get cupcakes instead of making a cake for just us and a cake for the party next week or whenever it is rescheduled. I didn't want that much cake around to tempt me or him.
We had postponed his party because yesterday he was sick with diarrhea and upset stomach and bad head congestion. He himself told me he wanted to have it another time when he felt better. Today he was feeling much better. Josh and I felt ill when we first got up, but not bad later. I was fine UNTIL the afternoon about sunset when I was on my second walk, following 12 minutes of hooping in my yard.. Then on that second walk at the furthest point from home (of my regular walk), my knee popped out of place AND at the same time, my bowels got all angry and I needed a bathroom pronto. I had to limp home in agony going as fast as I could, which was about half the speed I normally do. OMG.. severe diarrhea AND major leg pain. Even after icing my leg I couldn't even put weight on it! Soooo sore! I made myself a very healthy early dinner (no lunch other than a greek yogurt and then a cupcake). Dinner was fresh veggies and hummus to dip, coldcut turkey, babybel cheese and a gluten free bagel. I think I'm still way under on calories, but probably not when I figure in a cupcake that was like 400-500 cal. probably.. not sure, but as a guess.
So now I'm sore and achy, headachy, and upset stomach. Bleah.
But overall, I am feeling skinnier every day and making good choices.
