Oh my goodness. It's been a crazy busy couple of days. 'Tis the season, I suppose. From the patio decorating contest (which I, sadly, didn't win), cookie exchange parties, the holiday musical at my son's school today, other school parties, family parties, the women's dessert at church and finishing up the hand-made presents for family and friends, it's been go go go this past week. But I love it, I really do! I enjoy keeping busy... especially with holiday activities.
[Boys: skip this paragraph.] Yesterday I got my period. For any other girl, this sux. BUT, I have only had about 5 periods in the last 5 years. Sure, you might say "lucky!" but when I do get it, it's extremely painful. I'm insanely emotional (thus my last blog post), craving sugar and junk food with a passion, bloated, cranky, tired, etc. It ruins me for the week I have it. Needless to say, I'm nervous for my weigh-in this week. Between cramps and bloating and the overall BLAH feeling, I don't know what to expect. I haven't gone crazy eating all the junk in sight like I normally do so that's good. I just feel super huge right now.
Anyway, so since I won't be able to weigh-in before 6pm EST (per ALLAN'S request), I will either be weighing in tonight or tomorrow as I'll be at my Mom's house. WISH ME LUCK!!!! I've counted calories. I've drank the water. I've made good food choices... even when I had meals outside the home. I've turned down meal-out invitations. I've watched myself at parties and counted every morsel of food that passed my lips. I just, like I said, feel HUGE right now. HugeER than normal. Yah, being bloated does that!
I'm about to take a nap with my munchkin. I shared my bed last night with about 5 loads of laundry. I was just NOT in the mood yesterday to fold it and put it away. Between that and the cramps, I didn't get much sleep. So I'm hella tired. We have a Christmas-movie-and-popcorn-night at my Moms tonight so I wanted to be rested and in a good mood. I can't believe it's 8 days until Christmas. What a BEAUTIFUL time of year!!!
