Hope you feel better Donna!!
I hate when you know a blow up is coming and everything is edgy for days. DH and I are like that alot.
We have discovered at daycare that DD will nap if I am not there, so from now on I'll send her down the hall with Tonya the toddler teacher. She napped yesterday with Tonya and the evening was so pleasant! When she is with me is is a total pest all through nap time and will not settle down. Then at home that night she is miserable.
I am hovering in this between plans stage. I want to do WW b/c I know it and I know it works. But I am tired of it and don't stick to it. I got alot of great info from You on a Diet
by Dr Oz and The Good Mood Diet
offered a few tidbits that seem like a reasonable way to add certain mood boosting foods to my daily regimine. But I can't have artificial sweeteners and both books rely heavily on them to keep calories low but allowing some treats. But for me it makes eating healthy stuff like yogurt difficult. All light yogurts have artifcial sweeteners and regular vanilla yogurt has 30 grams of sugar, and other flavors like the whipped kind have 21 grams. Completley eliminating the "white stuff" makes my life miserable and nearly impossible to live with how my family eats. I have replaced most of our pasta and all of our breads with whole grain, but it's not always possible and it is far more expensive.
With WW I can eat what they eat and count the points, but then I get in these moods where I am annoyed that I have to waste 5 points on a small cup of yogurt, or 9 points on a measley cup of hamburger helper. I could make myself something else or boost up teh volume of my meals with veggies. I used to rely heavily on salads but I think I have IBS b/c everytime I eat certain things I am running for the nearest bathroom. Plus I get tired of counting measuring blah blah blah.
I don't know if I should go back to doing WW gung ho adding in ideas from the other plans I like, or if I ditch WW and try to live the Dr Oz way. Neither seems to be working for me right now. Or maybe it's that I am not working right now.
I guess I am just tired of failing, even though I know exactly why I fail. I need to choose long term health and happiness over temporary satisfaction.
DH is still in Denver. I have to do a week's worth of laundry today, completley haul out my office, clean my bathroom, clean the playroom (so DS can pitch his tent
), clean the livingroom which seems to have "stuff" piled on any available surface, and really clean my kitchen and fix my cabinets since everything seems to be avalanching out of them. My gramma is coming this weekend and I can't have my house looking like this. Plus DD has dance class today which by the time we get ready, drive there, do the calss and drive home we've spent a good 2 1/2 hours. Wish me luck!
