Guess who lost another 2.4 lbs this week? I did! I did! Yippie! Now that I'm down nearly ten pounds two pairs of my postpartum jeans are literally falling off and I'm down one jeans size. I rule! Goooooo me!
Confession #1: I did not exercise, not once. I did play outside with the kids a couple of days, but the weather was kind of cold and rainy in the mid-Atlantic last week. Being that my whole exercise plan hinges around walking outdoors with children, cold and rain throws a major wrench in things.
BUT. I'm motivated to start moving, because if I'm doing this well sans exercise, I'm going to destroy some serious ass fat once I get going.
Confession #2: I ate a piece of chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting at my friend's daughter's ninth birthday party this weekend. And some bread pudding. And two cheese biscuits.
BUT. Other than the two cheese biscuits (which I kind of shared with Oscar), I ate in MODERATION. The piece of cake was a normal sized piece of cake, not the mammoth hunk I would have formerly eaten, and only like a half cup of bread pudding. So while I did indulge, I did not over indulge, so I think that's a score.
Confession #3: I doubt I'll exercise this week. I have thrush, which if you don't know, is a yeast infection on/in my nipples and milk ducts. And is SUPER painful (like a burn) and itchy. I'm on a boat load of antifungals and probiotics (as is Miles), but unfortunately yeast thrives on sugar and breast milk is full of sugar so it can take a while to go away. Up to seven days to even feel relief. Anyways, so with the itching and burning, moving more is on hold. A bonus to thrush is that I look like I'm groping myself in public. It's awesome.
BUT. I'm supposed to avoid sugars and starchy foods because of the thrush, so I'm hoping this will boost my weight loss as I normally eat tons of sugars and starchy foods (see: my ass.)
Remaining: 78.6 (yowza!)
Goal for this week: Hit the 10 lb mark; stop itching my nipples in public; stop itching my nipples period (do I need to write a letter to you, Thrush? Because I do not play.)
Go and heckle my fellow HASAYers over here. They heart negative humor.
