Life has been getting in the way of my healthy lifestyle. My in-laws were at my house for two weeks. And then it was celebration after party after celebration... and then, I just got lazy...
No more. I'm sick of feeling sluggish and horrible. I know what I need to do. I know that it works. It sucks hardcore that I can't eat as much as my skinny friends and family, but that's how it is, and I just have to make the best of it. I know I gained back some weight and I'll weigh in tomorrow and do measurements and get the show on the road.
I have accomplished some things though.
After agonizing and agonizing, I found a daycare program for Keira starting in the fall. As good as she is, it is just tough to get anything done and she deserves more attention than I can give her.
I won a couple of big cases, which was a fantastic ego boost. There are now about a dozen new U.S. citizens and more to come, thanks to my work.
I got recommended for a BIG job and applied for a couple of others. It felt good that someone said such great things to a prospective employer.
I didn't lose my marbles after hosting my in-laws for two weeks and planning a Christening brunch for 70 people.
I planted an herb garden! And have a proper tomato and squash patch. My house truly feels like a home now.
I love my family so much. I just feel so connected to and blessed to have my husband and daughter.
I'm running a half marathon in just under 100 days with MAMADELIGHT and LISSOME and I need to get back in running shape. So I've got my half marathon plan set and posted on my refrigerator with an exercise calendar. This time around I have a run-walk day, a short run, and a long run.
So that's where I am.
Also... SIX MONTHS!!!! I can hardly believe it!

Cup of Kashi Honey Almond Flax cereal with a cup of unsweetened coconut almond milk
2 cups coffee with half and half
Lunch and dinner are going to look very similar today. I bought a rotisserie chicken the day before to eat for dinner and for lunches during the week, and my dad brought over ANOTHER one, so chicken for lunch and dinner.
Rotisserie chicken meat (without skin) with a salad with grape leaves, crumbled bacon, olives and other veggies (no dressing)
Rotisserie chicken meat with a sweet potato and a salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and reduced fat feta cheese with two glasses wine (hey, it's Friday night!)
Just one, a half cup of Ben & Jerry's Greek Frozen Yogurt in banana peanut butter with a sprinkle of unsweetened flaked coconut. OMG.
15 minute leisurely walk
65 minute walk at 3.5-3.8 mph
