   (8 comments) on diet DairyFarmersWife's own diet   losing 3.4 lb a week

20 April 2015

So far I am down 1.5 lbs since starting my challenge. Not too bad.. not fabulous but not too bad. That's 1.5 lb loss in 1 week. Now I just have to keep it up and I will be 180 before I know it. This week I'm really going to push it. I'm going to workout for at least 30 minutes on the elliptical every night. I'm sticking to my 1600-1800 calorie range with no processed candies and cookies.. and um.. delicious goodness. I want 180 darn it! I want to see 185 when I weigh in next week. I want a butt that fits into size 16s without the use of pliers.. and grease.. and possibly a crowbar. I'm doing this!

Sure.. the english muffin part of my breakfast wasn't exactly planned but I got this kick in the pants after that. I think it came as I was eating the muffin. Thinking.. I shouldn't be eating this. If I want my butt to shrink I can't keep eating this crap. Now I'm hungry and I'm blaming the muffin. Dumb muffin. No more dumb muffin. My butt is going to shrink. I don't want a muffin butt. I want a cute little perky butt. Today I'm going to go get salad makings for lunch to help make that cute little perky butt. Before I know it I will be down to 150 and I will molest my own butt.

I will make progress 1 day at a time. Before I know it 30 days will have passed and I will be below 180 on my way to a cute perky butt. HA! I just figured out why people count!

Day 1.. to cute perky butt.

Weight ticked down slightly again today! Only.. I forgot what the scale said somewhere between getting dressed and brushing my teeth so I can't log it and I wasn't about to strip down to my skivies again to see what it said because by that point there was 2 dogs, a toddler and a preteen in the bathroom with me. Instead I'm just going to be happy that I'm a teeny tiny bit lighter today than I was yesterday.

Eating is pretty good. Only a couple teeny tiny slips. They aren't weightloss threatening but I would probably be losing weight better if it weren't for these teeny tiny slips. Like the doube stuffed oreo. I didn't even touch the thing! Literally. I'm not fibbing this time. I got them for little man and while I was working on the barn sign in the dining room he asked if he could have one. I said sure give me a second. A second was too long. He climbed his little butt onto the counter, opened the container, grabbed 2 then came rushing over to me. I must have had my mouth open in shock from his gymnastic almost 3 yr old stunt because before I knew it I was standing there with a can of paint in one hand, a paint brush in the other hand, and he jumped on one of the dining room chairs and shoved the cookie right in yelling "HERE MOMMA!" Then he raced off into the living room yelling Pum! Pum! It was my teeny tiny slip. I would rather have teeny tiny slip than tell my 3 yr old thanks but no thanks when he's being so sweet and thinking of someone other than himself while getting his double stuffed oreo fix on. His dad does the same thing so that just melts my heart a little bit more.

Tonight I meet with a potential new sitter who is only watching 1 kid right now. She sounded young but everyone seems to think she's nice. Plus she lives right across the street from grandma and in front of one of our hay fields. Hopefully I still have time to workout. I've been on the elliptical every night while I attempt to get peanut to sleep in his own bed. I'm thinking of the machine noise as white noise.. and seeing me in front of the crib bouncing up and down? That's just entertainment. It seems to be working. He falls asleep within 10 minutes for 2-3 hours.. wakes up and screams bloody murder for someone to come get him. This is what I get for co-sleeping. I haven't slept without a foot in my face for at least 2 years now. If it isn't peanut it's little man. If I can handle the stress and the crying and the pleading this weekend may be the start of operation "Get outta my bed!" The tricky part is peanut gets up 3-4 times a night and little man is a sneaky bed ninja. I'll look over at 3 am and he's there. I put him in his own bed. I wake up to every little noise but somehow the sneaky bed ninja manages to sneak to the middle of our bed and snuggle right in.

Bacon is the miracle food! I ate it.. and I lost weight. I know this because I peaked at the scale instead of waiting till next week to peak at the scale. I needed the boost. Today's motivation is scale peaking. Maybe I should peak more often...

Ok mommas. I need some opinions. Peanut is small for his age with is different for me. All my other kids ran around 60% on the growth chart thingy mabob. So I was just thinking.. ok he's small for his age. He's now 7 months and he still seems small for his age. I think little man looked like a mini toddler by now but peanut is bald and little man had hair hair galore so maybe that was it. I kept trying to wrap my head around it then the sitter and I had a conversation that kind of blew me away. For the past 2 months I have been taking baby food to the sitter to feed to peanut. He started drinking less milk like 6-8 ounces so I thought oh ok.. the food is filling him up plus he still wakes up 3 or 4 times in the middle of the night to eat and he isn't wasting away. Hes healthy just small. I would then try to feed him at night right after we ate dinner and he was always stubborn. Doesn't seem to like anything. After 2 spoonfulls he's done. He will superglue his little mouth shut. So I was thinking... odd. New territory for me. But he's a peanut so maybe his stomach just isn't that big.

Fast forward to yesterday.
Me: How are you doing on baby food? Do you need more? (She should have run out by now but hadn't said anything.)
Sitter: Oh I've got plenty.
Me: *blink twitch* How often are you feeding him?
Sitter: Eh.. every once in a while. He doesn't seem to like any of them anyways maybe you should try custard or something.

At this point I realize my son a)Isn't being fed baby food at the sitter. He is 7 months old. He should be eating baby food and none of them like it at first. Custard?!?!? b)He's only drinking 6-8 ounces a day in an 11 hour span of time. Again.. WHAT!?!?!?! Oh and it's not because he's full of food. I'm slightly.. upset now. Ok not slightly but I'm attempting to not curse. So now I want to ask. Am I nuts? Yes he's a peanut but even a peanut should be eating more than that. I'm thinking about calling his doctor just to get her opinion. He's 7 months old and about 15 lbs. I think Little man was closer to 20 lbs right around now but I'm not positive. Oh and don't worry. I'm already looking for new sitters in the area. They're just so freaking hard to find.

So today.. no voice and yes I've cursed but no one heard me. When I get my voice back I'm in trouble. Food so far so good. I now have a theory that bacon grease will help my throat. It doesn't hurt.. so it must be working. Today the boys are with grandma or tonights workout may have been slapping the sitter silly.
