Hey Spark People! I've been MIA again. Still keeping up the offline journal although it went from every day in July to about 10 entries for August! It's was a busy, busy month!
School started here on Tuesday and C entered her sophomore year of high school. She is too cool for first day of school pics (and was running late already) so there are no photos to be shared. Punky is growing so fast!! She's talking up a storm and thinks she runs the show. Which, let's face it, she kind of does!
Anyhow, looks like my weight loss is going to be put on hold again! I found out a few weeks ago that #3 is on his/her way! I've been struggling a lot with this one. I was never sick with either of the girls and I've been nauseous for 5 or 6 weeks straight. Also I've been so incredibly tired. It's like a cruel joke. Paul and I recently fought about his sleeping and napping all of the time while I was waking up with Punky every weekend and he was napping after work. I was getting irritated to say the least. Now, all I want to do is sleep. It is so not like me! Anyhow for all of the above reasons, I will be shocked if I find out this is a girl. I know every pregnancy is different but both of the girls were so nice to me and this one is a jerk so far!!
In other news, I ran a 5k with my sisters back on C's 15th birthday, August 23rd. My older sister hadn't bothered to train at all and my younger sister has been working out quite a lot. We were supposed to run together but the younger sister decided about a mile and a half in to ditch us. I stuck it out with my older sister because I knew she was having a really hard time with it. She sucked basically. Our time was 41 minutes and even pregnant I could have finished a good 6 minutes faster I think. But we finished and that was what counts. And today I made it down to the gym for the first workout since then! I'm hoping that maybe getting some activity in will help with my fatigue in a backwards, inertia kind of way.
I've also been eating whatever sounds good because I'm starving and feel like vomiting all of the time so if it sounds good and doesn't make me want to hurl, I eat it. It's not good. My usual go-to snacks don't ever sound good. Yogurt and almonds; just thinking about them trigger my gag reflex. Donuts and cinnamon rolls on the other hand. . . Thinking about them invokes visions of the scale creeping upwards and onwards. I did pick up some Zone bars last night for the first time in a long time and they seem to be a good balance of tasting good and not being a donut.

Linnea had quite a rough day! She got a black eye and a scuffed up knee at daycare and passed out at home!
First, at daycare, she knows to keep a wide berth when it comes to the swing set. Typically she does. Today though, today she was in a bit of a mood. She was not into sharing anything that she had at some point, that she wanted or that she might want. So, when she saw another kid going towards the slide, she made a beeline for it, right through the path of the swing. It was apparently clear for the one second and then, as swings do, it became a very unclear path within a second. She ran her eye straight into the foot of a friend who was on the swing. This caused her to fall and scuff up her knee.
Then, I wasn’t around for this but as I’m told . . . at home she was playing soccer in the house. She went to kick the ball and missed skimming the top of it causing her to fall straight back onto the hardwood floors, hitting her head in the process. Clearly, this would be painful and it was as she indicated by her immediate wailing. It seems that it was one of those cries kids do where they can’t even catch their breath to let out the scream of pain. Well, she couldn’t catch her breath and was crying so naturally, Paul went over to pick her up. As he did, her head flopped to the side and she passed out! He said it was just for a second and he said her name and she quickly straightened up and started screaming but it scared the crap out of him.
Yikes! I’m really glad I wasn’t there for that. I would have freaked out. Instead, I was at dinner planning Jackie’s bachelorette party weekend with Kelly, Jody and Theresa at Acapulco sitting out on the patio with margaritas and tacos. It was surprisingly really nice. Kelly and I were prepared for the worst knowing that Theresa can be a bit overbearing to put it mildly, but it was a lot of worry over nothing. Everything went really smoothly and it will be a great weekend!!

I haven't been posting everyday but so far I've got in 6.3 miles this week which is pretty great for me! 2 runs were treadmill runs at 6mph and 1 outdoor run at the same pace. I feel like I'm finally getting it back! I think today will probably be an elliptical day just for a little break on my legs but I'm pretty happy with this week. And you, might have noticed that I upped my sets yesterday to 3 instead of 2 and boy did it make a difference in how I feel today!

Man, I woke up with quite a headache and sore throat. I tried desperately to get Paul to wake up with Linnea but not shockingly he didn’t. He had the nerve to say it was “my job”! He had that stupid golf tournament yesterday and clearly is hung over. (And certainly drove home last night when he shouldn’t have.) He did finally get up with her but might as well not have. Linnea ended up back in our room 30 minutes after he brought her downstairs. So much for me sleeping in even one time! I’m glad my dad came over to finish the fence. Serves Paul right for being a jerk!
On the bright side, they did finish the fence. They started working on it the last weekend in May. Seven weekends later it is finally done!! Apollo and Punky can now play outside in the backyard together!!
Before Dad got there though, Linnea and I were sitting at the kitchen table. She had made this little foam picture at daycare with little foam flower stickers. She proceeded to take off all the flowers and put them all over the collar of my shirt. Then on my finger nails. Them on her finger nails. It was really funny how into this she was! She’s so stinking cute. I almost felt better. Still pissed at Paul but much better!
While they were working on it, Linnea and I were playing outside. She loves playing outside. First she saw her wagon and we went for a walk around the block and she stayed in the wagon the whole time! Then we tried to play in the front yard but she kept pulling all of the flowers off of the hydrangeas while I was pulling weeds! Eventually she saw the stroller in the garage and wanted to go for a walk so we did that instead. I grabbed my running shoes and off we went. After about ¾ of mile, she was sleeping so I decided we would be doing the longer walk. And I decided to try to run some of it despite the heat and pushing the stroller. (I mean, what good is a $400 jogging stroller if you're never going to job with it right?! Doesn't make easy to push though, let me tell you!!) All in all we went for 3.22 miles and I probably ran about 1-1.2 miles of it. As I was running one bit, a guy, clearly into fitness, smiled and said, “Looking good!” as he walked past us in the other direction. Can’t hate that!
When we got back, I was a sweaty mess and so was Linnea. I didn't realize how hot she'd get just sleeping in the stroller. Mom of the year kind of moment! I brought her up to her room to try to get her to nap more, definitely thinking that wouldn’t happen and she happily did! She slept for another hour and forty five minutes!
The rest of the day was pretty dull. We just bummed around the house mostly. Chelsea slept until 4:00. Yes, 4:00 pm. How can she do that? Had I not been feeling so yucky I likely would have forced her to get up much sooner. Then at about 6:30 she and I went to Target for groceries. We had very little food!! Of course, Paul didn’t feed Linnea dinner so after grocery shopping I had to feed her and put her to bed late. She was so cuddly though. She just laid right down on me and fell asleep. No books or anything. After that, I watched some TV with Chels then hit the hay. . . after watching Dawson's Creek in bed for entirely too long!
Exercise: 3.22 mile walk/run
Breakfast: Lucky Charms
Morning Snack: none
Lunch: Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Afternoon snack: Almonds

I said we had no food and I meant it! I love cereal but not typically my first choice for two meals in one day! Today promises to be a much better, healthier food day!

Today is the first day without a bottle!! This morning, Paul didn't bring up the bottle full of milk for Linnea. He brought up a sippy cup instead. It shockingly went really well! In the evening, if she wants a bottle and we give her a cup she freaks the F out so that is what I anticipated. Not the case. She took it in stride. She was much more upset that he put the gate up on our bedroom door so she couldn't escape while I was getting ready for work.
Also, Linnea still has her hands down my shirt all the time. Not in what I consider to be a weird way. I think she just really likes skin to skin contact and that is where she first found it. So every day she still shoves her and down my shirt or in my straps or something. This morning it was in bed as we were lying down she put her hand down my shirt and just rubbed back and forth on my chest. And at bedtime, if I'm wearing a t-shirt, she pulls the neck down as far as she can to put her cheek to my chest.
After work, I came home to Travis (Paul's friend) and Paul and Linnea eating Subway. The first thing Paul said was, "She's eating green pepper!¨ This little girl loves veggies! She ate her tomatoes, peppers, black olives and cucumbers! She also ate all her turkey and her cheese and apples. . . after wearing her turkey as a hat! She actually put it on her head and said, "Hat." Weirdo!
On another note, I heard from Chels that she'll be home around noon on Friday! Yea!!!
Exercise: none, too busy at work to do much of anything!!
Breakfast: Open Face Egg sandwich
Morning Snack: Chobani Key Lime Flip
Lunch: Chicken burrito bowl with corn salsa, a little cheese and a lot of lettuce
Afternoon snack: none
Dinner: 6" turkey on wheat with no cheese and lite mayo with Cheetos
