However it turned out that there WAS barf last night, we just didn't know it until the morning. Charlotte apparently barfed in her crib at some point without making any noise or crying and then went right back to sleep. Poor sweet little thing. At least I have one kid who is good at being sick...if it were Emily we would've had a 2-hour scream fest in the middle of the night. It has been over a week...when will this go away?
My stomach is feeling vaguely upset today, as it has been off and on every day for the past week. I just count myself lucky that I haven't thrown up. It isn't affecting my appetite though, unfortunately. When I feel nauseous I don't want to eat but whenever there is any other kind of sensation in my stomach my instinct is to eat to see if food will make it feel better. It doesn't make any sense, but that's what I do.
I weighed myself this morning, and I was down 0.6 pounds from 8 days ago which makes me very happy. Looking back at my weight tracker on the WW website I see that I am, in fact, lighter than I have ever been since Charlotte was born! I don't want to lose my momentum so I decided to start right back into taking pictures of my food again and that definitely helped me today. I have a trip to San Antonio with Will near the end of the month so I want to lose another chunk of weight before I leave for that!
|1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1/8 cup raisins|
|1 fried egg|
|Leftover paella that Will was smart enough to freeze before we left on vacation|
|A blurry picture of greens, baby carrots, yellow bell peppers, 1/4 oz pecans, Trader Joe's blueberry vanilla goat cheese and balsamic mixed with garlic hummus as a dressing|
For my snack I wanted a green smoothie, but we didn't have any bananas! Well, we have super-green ones (that's the only way Costco sells them and that's where I went today) but those wouldn't work. So I made due, and the result was slightly tart but still good.
|1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/3 cup nonfat plain yogurt, 1 peeled orange, 1 spear pineapple, 1/3 cup frozen mango chunks, the rest of a container of mixed greens we stuck in the freezer before we left|
While I made dinner Will poured us some of the black cherry porter he picked up from Flying Dog today.
|Mine is on the right...tasty|
|Skirt steak dry rubbed with paprika, garlic, smoked salt and pepper, millet cooked in water and light coconut milk and asparagus cooked with salt, garlic powder and balsamic vinegar|
Looking back I realize this is possibly the worst blog post ever, but it accomplished my goal of posting all my food pictures and I'm really exhausted so I'll leave it as it is and we'll all hope for better tomorrow.
