-I am freaking out about getting ready for the trip and flying with the girls
-I am PMS-ing
-I am irritated that I had to be called out of Bodypump twice tonight, the second time permanently since my 4.5 year old peed on the floor in daycare.
That was much better than what I wrote. And since I wrote the first version I've been able to take a shower with not one but TWO locked doors separating me from my children, so the world looks a little brighter now.
Will thoughtfully prepared Saturday morning breakfast today since we won't be around Saturday morning to eat it then.
|Great Harvest Rye bread (interesting choice, but it needed to be used up), 3/4 oz cabot 50% light cheddar, 1 slice beef bacon, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, sliced baked apples, egg|
Snack was a KeVita and 1 oz cabot 50% light.
Lunch was a repeat of yesterday, minus the tomatoes.
|Greens, red bell pepper, roasted chickpeas, snap peas, 1 oz feta, balsamic, 1 tsp olive oil, 12 small black olives|
|1 rolled-up slice Applegate Organics herbed turkey breast lunchmeat|
When snack time came I was really craving a peanut butter milkshake. Chocolate Covered Katie posted one awhile back and ever since I saw it I've wanted it. I used to make one with sugar free cheesecake jell-o pudding powder that was amazing, but I don't use things like that anymore so I had to get more creative. I think the result was super-tasty.
|1 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, 2 Tbsp peanut flour, 1 large frozen banana, ice, 6 drops NuNaturals liquid stevia|
It was just what I was craving, but healthy! I am quite pleased about that because I have been battling the panicky hormonal cravings a lot the past 2 days and I am proud that I made a smoothie instead of just attacking a bag of chocolate chips.
Dinner was leftover paella eaten in the car on the way to Bodypump.
|Possibly even yummier the second day|
When I got home I was very irritated and angry, and I wanted more peanut butter milkshake so that's what I had.
|Same smoothie, but now it's dark|
I think we're about finished packing(!) so now I plan to relax a bit and then head to bed. Emily has come out of her room 4 times in the past hour for the following reasons:
-Her 'gina felt crooked (?!?)
-She couldn't find the baby dragon that turned out to be in her hand
-She thought she might have to poop
-She needed to read a book for awhile
Looks like I'm not the only one who might have trouble sleeping tonight.
And yes, I know that I am lucky to be able to take my kids to Disney World. I know we'll have fun. I know that other people fly with kids all the time on much longer flights than I will be taking tomorrow. But "other people do it all the time, and for much longer than I'll have to do it" is what I told myself before I gave birth the first time, and that didn't mean it wasn't the toughest and most painful thing I've ever done!
