So I completely forgot to blog yesterday! Being a mom of two leads to forgetfulness. So let's start with yesterday...
We went to Sweet Tomatos for Jeff's birthday. I went with a plan- no bread, no soup, no ice cream. I am proud to say.... I stuck to the plan! It was hard to resist- especially when I got Xavier his requested cheesy bread- but I was good. I skipped the fatty ranch dressing and cheese too! I had a giant veggie packed salad with fat free honey mustard dressing and it was actually really filling!
Arabella has been super cranky each night- starting at around 7 or so. I need to figure out if it's something I'm eating that is passing through my milk and upsetting her tummy. It's so hard to figure out the cries at this age. I know her hungry cry- but the rest is just a guess.
So I've done well with my cardio- pushing the kids on really long walks- but I can't seem to get my strength training in. So that is my goal for this week- that and tracking my food. My good buddy Julia said in a recent blog that if she doesn't start the day off right- by tracking breakfast- then she is less likely to track at all. This is so true! Yesterday I didn't track breakfast- then didn't track at all! I need to stick with what I know- and that's tracking my food!
Oh- I also weighed yesterday- and am down almost 4 pounds! Wha-hoo!
Today is going to be busy. Got up early and ran to Bed Bath and Beyond for a wedding gift- went to Carters to get Arabella a dress and to Childrens Place to get Xavier a tie. One of my good friends is getting married tonight- nothing like waiting till the last minute for things right?! The bonus of breast feeding is that I'll be sure to avoid alcohol tonight! Now if I can just avoid the cake! Jeff is very supportive and a very healthy influence- so I'm sure I'll be able to resist!
Going to get my workout in after we get home from the wedding. So I probably won't be blogging again today. With that said- I hope everyone has a very Sparked day!
