Well, I am shocked that I can say I have had two good days of eating in a row. It’s funny how planning and preparation make all the difference for me. I am either in control or wowza, I am not. Monday I did Day 1 of Insanity, which was just the fit test (but still hard!) and then at lunch I did 30 minutes on the stair stepper and some upper body weights. Today I ditched working out all together! This morning we over slept (I actually woke up, but I was freezing and not getting out of bed!!) and then I took a quick lunch and left work early to take my 4yo to Sesame Street Live, the USO edition. It was really great to have Elmo tell him that when Daddy is gone it is okay to feel sad, but that you need to help extra and do things to stay in touch. He got a cool little toy, too, and of course he loves that. Ironically his Daddy is not coming home tonight, because he has duty, so we read a book like Elmo suggested and now they are out like a light! Let’s see if I can remember my food for the day…

B: protein shake– 6oz skim, 1/2 banana, 1 scoop cake batter protein powder
S: oatmeal
L: turkey wrap, cheesestick, yogurt, grapes
S: some fruit, granola bar
D: rice, homemade stir fry with green beans, broccoli, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, and some homemade miso soup (which I am getting good at making, but I had too much seaweed in this batch… it’s hard to tell because it is dehydrated when you put it in!)
S: leftover veggies only

And I think I drank only 1 bottle of water today. Oops!
