Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

"Stiches" and movements

Good evening!

As I've been sitting here reading over some blogs, I've been having what I call "stitches" on my belly. Usually I have to stand up and stretch for several minutes before the pain abates.

Ok, I'm better now.

The baby is really moving right now. I keep imagining what he looks how big he is. I find it difficult to imagine his actual size while looking at my belly. It's truly an amazing concept to think that I have a living human being moving around in me. Sometime when I feel really large movements inside of me, I imagine that he's probably just doing what we outside are doing...normal everyday things like stretching or well...just the natural movements you make when your living every day life....but for him...inside of me, it's magnified because I can feel it all and because there is so little room for him to move.

Then, I think about what it will be like when we're doing home school after he's born, and he's hanging out sleeping nearby. All of his little movements that he made inside of me suddenly won't seem so big. But, then when he moves or yawns or stretches, we get to watch him.

Like I told you all a few days ago, there is a lot going on the next two weeks. But after that, there is not much planned except for the regular schedule.

From October 18th and on...I will have two weeks till I'm due. In my mind, I view that as the "waiting period". You any day could be the day. Ha, Ha! Because I'm not sure I want him to come before then, because I want to make sure he's "in" as long as he needs to be. That sounds funny to me if I can control that.

But today was a good eating day. I haven't had time to dig up any new recipes. But I did "make up" something different that I've been really enjoying. I started adding 1 tablespoon of peanut butter to my protein shakes.

So, it's like this: 6 oz of water, 4 to 5 ice cubes, 4 ounce banana, chocolate protein powder (about one ounce), and 1 tbl of natural peanut butter.

Wow! It is so tasty, thick and makes me feel like I'm have a chocolate-y, peanut butter treat.

Well, I hope you all have a good Wednesday. I see a midwife tomorrow.

  1. Sounds so yummy and healthy for little boy. He's coming...

  2. Chocolately treats sound good! I like your "made up" recipe. I am always throwing things in the blender with ice cubes. I am still prone to strawberries. The food journal is still going too. At first, it annoyed me, but now I love it. It comes to work with me every day for lunch time or if I sneak a Jolly Rancher or 2. (Old habits are hard to break!)Considering I used to pop those in all day, everyday I am making progress.

    I can't believe "Buttercup" or "Geranium" or "Honeysuckle" or "Marigold" will be joining us so soon! (Ha!) This little flower will be so very special. He is going to be famous in the blog world and he does not even know it! Have a great day!

  3. That drink sounds so yummy. You always have such great ideas. Ever think of writing a cookbook?? I would so buy it!!
