Happy Thursday...I'm 31 Weeks Two Days Along

Hola compadres!!

How was everyone's day?

I do think that I will do Dawne's challenge for the month of September where I will eat "snack-free". Although, I did grab a small handful of Lucky Charms while hungry and when I was about to prepare my supper tonight. I wonder if that counts as a snack...

Nevertheless. I really like the idea. I think September is a good month to do it. I have been so much happier with eating healthier and counting my calories that resisting snacks will only make it better, right?

When I think of snacks, I think of junk food like chips, candy, ice cream, cake, cookies. So, if instead I decided to eat fruits and vegetables when I'm hungry, I don't see that as "snacking" per se. And summer/fall is a great time of the year to eat fresh season is also upon us, and I do like munching on pre-cut carrots, radishes and such that are pre-soaked in water.

Well, today was productive. I am nesting, of course. So I cleaned up the porch area until it was spotless. Then, I went through all the kids "winter" wear so that I could have winter gear ready now. I'm pretty sure the last thing I want to have to think about when our baby is born in November is getting all the other kids' winter clothes out and ready. My plan is to have all the clothes ready for winter...soon.

I also hit a few garage sales today, and picked up some baby clothes and other things the kids need. There are garage sales every day through, I may just get everything I need by the end of this long weekend.

Also, made it to the gym for a decent bicep and back work-out. No commenter's tonight. I was actually feeling a little sleepy before going, but once I went there and did it, I felt happier and in a good mood.

It may be another few weeks yet before I can start posting pictures to my blog again. But when I am able to, I'll post an updated version of me. I've been really missing posting pictures.

Well, goodnight all!

Have a great Friday!!

Sunshine Mama


  1. hey!! you have a wonderful blog. thanks for sharing your weight lost progress here. keep it up and never give up. you can do it.

  2. I love get so much accomplished. Almost there...can you imagine how thin you will feel once baby comes?

  3. Happy long weekend! Friday finally came. I love garage sales. You can find some great bargins. The food journal is still working well. It's become second nature to record things and ask myself if I really want to eat something bad, because then I have to write it down! It holds me accountable. I miss your pictures, but when we "see" you again you will be ready for that baby! It's getting closer!

  4. You are getting so much done right now.l need a little of that but just not a baby!

    I have been journaling and thinking of you when I do!
