Morning.
Starting lc today! I need to go grocery shopping but I have enough for a few days at least.

Dh went back to work today so it's just me and the kids. Stella's 3week appointment is this afternoon. I'm glad too because I'm worried I'm not producing enough milk

I hope the appointment goes well, DP.


blah, now i'm not feeling well. pooh! I don't have any real plans this afternoon after work other than to get a weight workout in. I do plan on getting in there even if I'm still not feeling good. even if its not the best work out getting in there and doing something is good for helping me with a routine and I can always stop if I really need to.

The next few days are going to be really cold here. As soon as it warms up I'm going to start walking/running again. Ill be taking one of the kids depending on the day. The days Kyle is in daycare ill take the baby. I'm going to start with 3x a week. I want to start weights too but not sure how/when ill get that in. Thinking ill start with some body weight stuff during naps. I don't want to push it too much until I have my 6 week checkup.

Thanks stews. I'm worried because she is very fussy between feedings unless she is constantly attatched to me. It seems she isn't getting enough milk in a feeding. Also, I've been pumping and I'm not getting much out of it. I wanted to start a supply but it'll take forever at this rate. I want to continue breast feeding so I'm hoping to get some answers.

its been cold here but is a little warmer today. I'm still cold though, lol.


I DID get my weight workout in. just had my post work out meal and wondering how I'm going to lift my arms to wash my hair this reminds me how much Jackie hates me .

going to relax for a few minutes than go get showered and jammied. I DID get my kitchen taken care of too. Iforgot last night to put dishes away so I could get the rest in the dishwasher. I told dh I'd have to make sure I did it today. I've been doing really good keeping up on it and didn't want it to get out of hand. it wasn't bad. not even a full load to put into the dishwasher. mostly glasses and coffee cups. good grief. there are only 2 of us how did we use that many in 2 days?

oh yeah, and I got a load of laundry going too.

finely weighed this morning. after my "off" week last week I'm back to my previous low. now hopefully to stick to it for awhile and make more real progress. 8.4 pounds to my next mini goal.


I'm still not feeling good this morning. hopefully will be okay for work all day. if not, I'll leave and the teacher will have to deal with it. even if I called in right now, they probably wouldn't get a sub. I'm not running a fever or throwing up or anything so I may as well try.

no such thing as too much cheese . okay, there is but if I was struggling when on atkins or just trying to get back to LC I allowed as much as I needed.

I had a burger patty with greek yogurt jalapeno dip, a container of blackberry yogurt, 2 satsuma mandarine oranges and some spicy cheez its. need to do some cardio in a bit. I don't feel good and don't want to but I will even if its a slow walk. going to relax and let my food settle.

work was crazy today. glad tomorrow is Friday.

it was. I wasn't going to get it. but I like to have a can of whipped cream on hand (it is a nice treat plus if I run out of HWC it works till I get more, lol. I went to get it and looked at the numbers and the choc. was comparable to the regular so I got one of each.


I hope you work through this quickly with our sweet girl. give her smooches from auntie stews

Maybe it was meant to be stews!!!!

Ill have to look for the whip cream. It does sound yum!!

I hope this fixes too. Stella won't sleep today unless she's with me. It's nice today when I'm here alone but this won't work when kyles here! I keep laying her down but she won't sleep unless I'm holding her

I thought it would have more carbs (even though I'm not low carbing, I still look at those numbers along with calories/fat). it was pretty much the same. maybe because its supposed to be a small serving, lol. actualy, for using it in coffee I usually can control the serving size okay.


and I hope the dog is meant to be. i have never ever felt like this about one before. I mean, I was excited and wanted the pugs but this is different

I saw someone else was asking about him so I wasted NO time in finalizing the meet up. Hopefully that person won't insist on meeting him tonight and taking him before me.

ugh, I really don't feel good and I HAVE to do some cardio. I think I'm going to make myself head up there in just a few minutes telling myself I can stop after 20 min. if I need to. I usually do 40 or so when I do just cardio but at least getting up there for even 1/2 that would be going through the motions.

Morning. Kyle didn't get home until 12:30 so he's still sleeping and the baby just woke. It was nice to kind of sleep in!

Cold here! And of course I have to take both kids to the doctors because dh can't leave work

I bet. I took a sick day today. I really hate doing that but this bug is weird. each day is just a little worse. not the worst but I wish if I'm going to get sick it would just hit and be done with. I hate the not knowing if I should go to work or not. I got through the last 2 days but yesterday hit me harder than the day before. I feel worse this morning then yesterday although still probably could work. I just said forget it. they can deal without me.

on the plus side...I did hit a new low this morning. only by 2/10 of a pound but its still new, lol

ate some breakfast. figured since i was home and I can deal with it if my tummy reacts I would eat real food rather than the protein shake. I had key lime greek yogurt mixed with satsuma mandarin orange slices and lowfat granola. also an extra cup of coffee.

I am going to make myself try and do a weight workout in a little bit. figure I have a better chance getting it done early than if I wait. we'll see how it goes, I guess. I'll stop if I need to but want to go through the motions of at least getting in there and trying.

Nice work stews!! I hope you feel better soon.

We slept in this morning and then took Stella to her appointment. Looks like we will be giving her some formula to get her weight up. I hope it helps her.

Doing good today but me and Kyle made dh brownies for his birthday- they are staring me in the face!!

sling sounds like a good idea.


I am in LOVE with this dog. please pray the pugs relax a bunch today so I feel we can keep him. it is slightly better this morning. and he is enjoying some toys he found (which Hunter wasn't thrilled with at first...he doesn't like to share). by him playing with toys he is not constantly after he pugs to play. anyway, I really want this to work out. He has some training he needs but I think he can be an awesome dog.

oh and I'm just now getting my first cup of coffee and still haven't eaten yet today, lol. didn't want coffee on the end table because of his craziness and a couple times the pugs have tried to walk across the end table for an escape, LOL. they are all back to snoozing after having another bark fest.


he slept really good last night. He didn't like it when we all went upstairs and left him down in his kennel and barked for awhile, but once he went to sleep I didn't hear him again until I came downstairs this morning. part of the issue might be a new place, and part could be he doesn't sleep in his kennel at home. but I'm not ready to have him roam free in the house yet and I think he would have probably just followed us upstairs being the first day here and all. I'm trying to keep him downstairs as much as possible.
