last week i weighed 161 pounds. this morning (at 530, but thats another story) i weigh 159.4 for a loss of 1.6 pounds. 150s. wow. that feels as good as i expected it to.
things that have changed this week. im snacking a lot. on fruit. ive started buying a bountiful basket and because jason doesnt eat most of the fruits (pineapple, mangoes, apricots, blackberries, cantaloupe...) the kids and i do. also, dinner is earlier. like, 430 or 5 early. im not as hungry this way, so i eat less. and the last two days ive started getting up early.
in order to eat breakfast, drink one whole cup of coffee, and read my bible a bit before emma wakes up, i have to be up by 530. usually. this morning she was up at 532. id say she typically wakes around 645 though. i think. days that i have peace in the house before i begin parenting go SO MUCH BETTER. especially with things like zombie emma happening. id much rather wake up to an early alarm than the zombie baby and her mess. then when i have to clean poop off the rails of georgies crib (pooped out the leg of the diaper, then played in the crib a while. walked all the way around it apparently. that is, if i can read poo tracks as well as i think i can.) or spend twenty minutes laying down with emma to put her to sleep while my lunch gets cold, im at least in better spirits about it.
looking forward to next week. feeling encouraged. also, will post about The Race a bit later. (i need to squeeze in some grocery shopping before bed time.)
