The cravings are ridiculous (vent blog)

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I had a day of things planned but nothing seemed to work out completely like I expected. Some things worked out somethings didn't.

I planned to get up this morning at 10am. I woke up with baby and we both somehow fell asleep until 11:30am

So after feedings, I decided I wanted Subway which ended well until Joey started crying. I think he bit his lip or something. So I figured afterwards I would drive home with him because it is hell in a car right now. All he does is cry cry cry in the car. Although this time he actually fell asleep so I decided to beeline to Savannah to find a new foundation.

I get there and manage to get some attention from an employee and she's says she'll help me find a foundation. She has to tend to other customers first who were already waiting. I was hoping to have someone put some make up on me because I struggle with this stuff. However at her first and my first opportunity, she starts chatting with her co-worker who is helping someone. So after my son's tolerance threshold has been met, I'm like screw it. I pick something out and check out. I wanted to get my eyebrows done but no way my little one is going to allow that so I drove home....him crying the whole way. I finally find a pull over spot to check on him, feed him some bottle. He seems comfortable so I continue my only 25 minute drive home and he continues to cry until we get home. Ugh! (story of my life right now)

I had some things I needed to get done work wise but none of them were completed. I managed to put away laundry. I had to put him in a pack and play while I did this in order to keep him from climbing on laundry or climbing on something else in the room that might cause him to hurt himself. (Note - I have toys out and the room is babyproofed to a certain extent but he wants to climb on our decorative brick wall, entertainment center or the brittle shelves that hold our dvds. His toys mean absolutely nothing to him right now) While I'm folding laundry he is screaming and crying in the pack and play the entire time.

So I manage to get in a 7 minute workout today. Hubby got home and I prepared dinner. After dinner, I worked on the rest of laundry, thank you notes, packed my ebay shipment. I checked on Joey as he stirred and ended up falling asleep!!!

I woke up with him at 10pm to give him something to eat and now I'm on SP. I think my eating has been ok. I made a recipe and I don't know how to track the cals for it. I threw it together last night. They are enchiladas with alot of different elements to them. Earlier I had Subway. I believe I have managed to fit in three or four servings of veggies today. I'm proud of that.

I have had hardly any sugar in my liquids with the exception of a half and half tea today and I had a remaining slice of husband's birthday cake.

My cravings during the day are awful though. Soooo strong!!!! I feel stressed alot from Joey's crying and I am tired all the time. I have these awful allergies I never used to have. I slept in late today and took a three hour nap tonight. My husband plays with Joey in the evenings but sometimes I just wish I could have more evening help or even help during the day. I just want to eat an entire container of oreos every day. Sometimes I feel guilty feeliing this way but my mother agrees that Joey is into everything bad right now which can be stressful.

So despite my cravings I have not done horribly. No binging. That fact alone is worth a pat on the back for me.

    I wonder why Joey has been so cranky? I know babies cry, but it seems like he is crying often and I wonder if something is bothering him.

    Oh I hope things calm down a bit for you soon!

    It's a challenge to shop with little ones along. They tire out quickly and respond negatively to too much stimulation. I wish you could have more help too.

    Do you think there is something about the car that seems to set him off? Maybe there is some irritant or you could find a way to distract him. Could the motion of the car cause him to be car sick or have an earache? Is there some chemical in the car interior he is allergic to?

    From the sound of things I wonder if you are eating a food that triggers you. I have to avoid wheat as I have the same problems when I eat it. You did great not giving into temptation.

    Well, i feel for you. the baby will grow up ONE DAY and you need to be that healthy person you deserve to be. Hang in there !!! It will get better. I get on SP when I get up in the middle of the night so that I won't be tempted to eat at that time. I think you are doing great. Keep it up!!
