Raisin bran, guys. That’s what I’m eating, one cup of raisin bran with a half cup of skim milk.
Remember when I was pregnant, I would eat Cocoa Puffs or Chocolate Cheerios or Cocoa Puffs and Chocolate Cheerios harmoniously together in the same bowl? So yummy. But honestly, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter to me that I didn’t get to eat Cocoa Puffs or Pop Tarts. In fact, it feels pretty good knowing I didn’t have those things.
So, I started Weight Watchers on Wednesday. It’s going very well. It helps that I get a lot of extra points for nursing, fortunately, I haven’t had to change my habits too much. I have been on Weight Watchers before (Lifetime member!) and had great success, I created habits that have lasted. I really love Weight Watchers, I’m good at it, I think. But you have to be in the right mind frame to be successful. Am I right or am I right?
I’m pretty surprised that today is Friday. These weeks are flying by. I can’t believe that Elijah was born nearly 8 weeks ago! He is still a little fussbudget but he sleeps well at night, so I have that to be thankful for, right? He typically goes down for the night around nine and sleeps until 3. Last night he ate at 8:30, fell asleep and didn’t wake up until 3:45! Luckily, I went to sleep at 10:30 (after pumping). He’s been pretty consistent with this schedule, his biggest inconsistency is what he does after nursing at three in the morning. Sometimes he goes right back to sleep and sometimes he just wants to party with Mom and Dad.
Luckily, he’s cute. So, the parties involve lots of smiles. (from all of us.)
Unfortunately, last night’s sleeping stretch followed a day of no sleeping and lots of crying. I just keep thinking about how temporary this time is. I mean, it seems like yesterday that I was holding Anna all night long, she was about six weeks old and I kept thinking “okay, so this fussiness should end at 12 weeks, hurry, time! HURRY!” And now, Anna and Noah come home from school, do their homework and go out and play with friends and we don’t see them for hours.
I miss them.
I hope you guys have a great weekend. In Northwest Indiana, our weather is supposed to be in the upper eighties! I am hoping to get some gardening done. I also have a photo shoot tomorrow morning. I’m nervous, friends. It’s been a long time.
I’m off to put some makeup on and start my day of starting projects and never finishing them, thanks to a very sweet little baby boy. He’s the best excuse to not finish a project I have ever had.
Happy weekend! I leave you with a rare siting: a smiling Cubs fan.
