So this morning I woke up and made my soup. Mmm sure does bring back memories. :P I added zuchini to it this time and used V8 juice instead of regular tomato juice. Looking forward to trying some after it's all cooked for a few hours.
I woke up this morning and weighed myself. I was at 217. Down 1.5 pounds. :P I'm sure it is just because I weighed earlier than I did yesterday.
I didn't work out yesterday but I felt like I had after going grocery shopping and pushing 2 children and groceries and carrying Rylan in the moby wrap.
I got hungry last night and food consumed my mind! I could think of all the things I bought for my kids and the one thing that kept coming back in my mind was the goober peanut butter and jelly! I couldn't get it out of my mind and I knew that I would try to eat other things until finally giving in and having some. So I gave myself a little teaspoon of the stuff and moved on. I ended up eating a yogurt (activia light) and some carrots and tomatoes and felt satisfied and went to bed.
I had my protein shake (gonna add another scoop next time) for breakfast and haven't had lunch yet.
I know this is going to be a hard first week of shrinking my stretched out stomach so I've got to power through the hunger pains. Most of the pains are in my head anyway.
I plan to get my exercize bike in the living room again and ride it today.
......... (nursing the baby now be back later to finish)
After nursing the baby, feeding the other children, doing some laundry, and watching Anderson the soup is ready. :)
Time to go grab me a bowl of cabbage soup. Yum yum!
Until next time...
(thank you to all my friends who have already started cheering me on, you don't know how much that means to me! It helped me from eating the whole dang jar of goober peanut butter and jelly last night!)
