I've made it past Wednesday. And? I feel like my 'normal' self again. My cravings have subsided and life can go on as normal. Whatever normal is. I seriously become a wicked witch and I'm sure my family doesn't appreciate it. At. All. To top of my witchiness, my poor hubby has been battling an ear & sinus infection, along with the beginning stages of pneumonia. Yuck! Thankfully, he's kept the nasties to himself.
As for food, like I said, once I got to Wednesday, I was no longer craving things that I shouldn't have and was able to feel satisfied on what I have been eating *more protein and less 'sugary' stuff*. I did do Slim in 6 yesterday, but spent today going through our shed. I know what you're thinking, "But Kati, that isn't exercise!" Oh, believe me, it was! I picked up and moved plastic tubs full of clothes. I sorted all of the clothes *my old clothes that need to be gone*, baby clothes *sizes 3mo-24mo*, and big kid clothes. I brought a few things in for my middle kiddo to wear and a few things for the littlest one. After I got it all put into bags, I had to put it back into the shed. I'm hoping that I can bring it in the house, lay it on the floor, and take pictures. All of this before the alleged 10-24 inches of snow we're due to get between Saturday and Monday. Boo!! My entire body aches from leaning over tubs and sorting. I did find a pair of fun pants that I had tucked away. And yes, they fit.
I'm looking forward now to Saturday. Yep, it's St. Patrick's Day. Yes, I have some Irish in my background. And yes, we're having corn beef and cabbage. Yum! When I saw it go on sale, I just had a hankerin' for it. So...we're having some. Sunday is my littlest one's birthday. A whole big 2! I can't believe it! And honestly, I'm still unsure of what I'm doing for her birthday cake. I have ideas, I just haven't come to any solid decisions.
My fun and exciting non-food related news? I bought our new washer and dryer today. We'll get those delivered this next Wednesday. I also bought my tickets to fly home *alone* today. Yippee! That's another bonus to having lost weight...you don't have to ask for the seat belt extender on a plane. Sad, but true.
Tomorrow is my weigh-in day and I'd imagine I'll show at least a slight gain. All will be well and it's all part of learning my new 'normal.' I hope everyone is hanging in there. Take each day as it comes. That's all we can do.
