I need to run again today but it will not stop raining! Maybe it will slack up enough for me to get out there before dark. I have lost like 3 pounds which is not much at all but I haven't been super strict with myself either. I try to eat less than 1800 calories a day; I'm happy with that number for now. I do eat smaller portions and I incorporate healthier and lower calorie foods in our meals. I want to get used to healthier eating one baby step at a time so that it will become a permanent part of my life. I'm afraid if I get too strict with myself or do too much at once I will not be able to stick to it.
My back still hurts. Nursing in bed all night sucks. I wake up feeling so sore and achy. I was so hopping getting a new mattress would make it all better but I hate the new memory foam so much. It is just too firm. I do love that it is king size though. So, the mattress will go back and we will try a softer one. Hopefully it will work this time and in the mean time I plan to get a back adjustment at the chiropractor's and a massage at the salon to help me feel better.
I love my Lukie Pookie and will suck it up and nurse him despite my discomfort for as long as I can though.
