A week of salads

Friday, January 11, 2013

(Why yes, I am still alive, thanks for asking!)

An update of my fall, which somehow went from August to Jan in a blink of an eye....

* my husband's diabetes is now managed by Metformin and he no longer requires insulin (yay!) However he is now on high cholesterol medication as well as a daily aspirin regemin for his heart (boo)

* My child is a ninja who now has the ability to open doors, move baby gates, and move chairs to wherever she wants to be (ie: on top of the dining room table, kitchen counter, etc.)

* Thanks to the sleep training schedule developed by Dr. Jay Gordon, I am finally sleeping in stretches longer than 2 hours (yes, my daughter is 17 months and still a crappy sleeper). Last night I even got 8 straight hours! I almost cried.

I also went back to work, where I discovered that our new office, which is glorious and wonderful and incrediblel and even has a WINDOW, is across the hallway from the Gourmet Cooking classroom.

Yes, the same Gourmet Cooking classroom which single-handedly caused me to gain the 20 pounds that made me find SP back in 2009.


Since I have succombed to the allure of gourmet cooking, sedentary living (aka, sitting in front of a computer/in traffic for 10 hours a day), and am trapped in a limbo of "weaning but still nursing" (which means if I eat the same calories as nursing I gain weight, but if I don't I am starving) I have gained 15 pounds since the beginning of school.

The good news is...even gaining 15 pounds I am still only sitting around 156, which is my wedding weight and still pre-pregnancy! But then I look at all the pretty clothes I bought myself when I broke into the 140's and am sad again.

So, my plan of action is a week of salads. My hope is that eating a ton of lettuce will make my body be full, while not filling it with carbs, sugars and high calories. I intend on making my salads fun with sparse dressing (because lots would be sabatoge), eggs, beans, a little cheese, and a bunch of extra veggies.

We'll see how this goes...

And for fun, my little Bug enjoying her snow covered white Christmas with her Opa
