Awwwww Dubby, aren’t you sweet?! I actually thought at first that you were trash talking me back- it took me a while to realize you were being nice.
YAY for new Twitter friends- LittleSecrets, come join us!
Ugh- what is all this talk about “accountability partners”??? Man, the last thing I want is someone looking over my shoulder, making sure I stay good!
Wait, that probably means I need one, huh.
I am OK about exercising but terrible at actually pushing myself, I am pretty bad at the snack point, and pretty good but not awesome at the fruit/veggie point. Sometimes I get depressed and don’t check in with the thread much- that’s how you can tell I’m probably not doing very well. So I don’t know who wants to play accountability with me, but I feel like I won’t be a very good partner- my track record is pretty bad- I’ve been divorced twice, you know
Lisa- You and my DD and all my friends out there keep asking when I’m moving back! It’s so sweet to know I’m missed. So mask #2 didn’t help? Do you still look like your DH beat you up all night long? And still no better sleep? Seems like that’s not working- what else can you try? Maybe get a dog to blow air up your nose all night long?
Spunky- you could try what I do for exercise in the winter: I get up early and am still so asleep I don’t know what I’m doing. There- workout accomplished! And when I’m feeling REALLY lazy (as in, I’m not going to work out today) I do step while watching a DVD- lately I’m on Being Human and Big Love season 1.
Sam- I love that you’re hoarding beer! And I didn’t know you were going to move in with Mr. D-YAY! and wait, where does he live? I thought he was in Cincinnati? Re: maternity wear on websites- I just wouldn’t. 1) unless you are planning on having more kids, a lot of new maternity clothes are a waste of money. Doesn’t Missa (or anyone else you know) have any hand-me-downs? You could get a couple new spiffy outfits for special occasions, and just wear used most of the time. 2) When I was preggo with my son, I bought a bunch of cute new XL maternity clothes (rich hubby!), then gained a bunch of weight (gestational diabetes) and had to find even BIGGER size XL maternity clothes. Target and JC Penney did me just fine. But honestly, now I’d go for used- I’m sure you can find a used baby/kids clothing store with maternity clothes. Oh and 3) you need to try them on to get a good fit, Pregnant bodies are shaped funny, and pregnant ladies are really bothered by weird stuff, and you never know what's going to bother you. So at least find onw with free shipping both ways
Soooo since I couldn’t eat anything for a few days, and for a whole week only bland and soft food, I lost 3.3 pounds last week. Today I felt better- almost normal- and was dying for food with taste and substance. So I opened a beer and ordered pizza and wings (NOT getting my veggie point today!). After a week of hardly any food, I have a feeling I’m going to regret tonight’s dinner in a big way- I just wonder if it will be tonight or tomorrow
