I've outgrown my ticker and not in a good way!
Reached MAX this morning! What is up with that? Something is obviously not agreeing with me. Maybe it was the cheesecake?
Maybe it was the bacon on toast?
Maybe it was the half a carrot muffin I shared with DH?
Maybe it is the heat?
Maybe it was the salt in the guacamole on Sat night?
Maybe it is ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!
Okay so obviously I have to do something about it! My physical is a month away and if I go back on "The Plan" and stick to it, ( friendly days only) then I am going to lose at least 5 of the pounds I gained. Well that is the theory!
It scares me to think that in such a short time being OFF PLAN I can gain so much, okay so there was my monthly visitor that did not help....but I have to find a way to stick to the plan long enough to lose those 15 - 20 pounds that I have gained over the last 3 years and MAINTAIN! I need to find out what it is that makes me blow up like a blow fish
and gain unreasonable amounts in no time!
Today is going to be a hot one! - it is going to be 30 C this afternoon !!!
I started off the day with two glasses of lemon water, one cup of dandelion tea, and just finished up my flax seed granola and blueberries with rice dream.
One meal down, only 2 more to go and I will have a successful day! ( oh and the snack!)
Calling all my cheer leaders,
I need you!
This weekend our kids were at a church camp and they had a blast!
They came home filthy, exhausted but happy!
We had a good time, we rearranged the living room while they were gone! ( They complained, they don't like change) and then we went out for dinner on Sat night! ( much needed, I was too tired to make dinner) - I had chicken and goat's cheese salad, which had beets in it and sunflower seeds, YUM!!!!
Yesterday the camp ended with a family time of games ( blind man's bluff and an adaptation of musical chairs and you know....family type games)
The kids had done a tie -dye shirt each, and they did a great job!
Here is a pic of Blind Man's bluff - they were in partners and had to follow the voice of their partner while they were blindfolded!
Then we had a BBQ and then an outdoor service! It was HOT!
We had smoothies for dinner after that! ( I add spinach to it and the kids now KNOW I do that and still drink it! LOL)
It was a good break and I enjoyed the change of pace and scenery! I was so relaxed...
and DH and I had some good time together having conversations that were not interrupted by having to do stuff for kids or discipline or give instructions! As nice as it was, I missed my two little ones so much! Glad they had a good time, but I am glad they are back home!
We have 3 days of school and then SUMMER HOLIDAYS!
And...we are still waiting for the duck eggs to hatch!
