Happy Thursday! Mr. Lovely Turns Twelve Weeks...

Hi folks!

Happy Thursday...only one more work-out day at they gym. We can do it.

I took these pictures of Mr. Lovely tonight while I was cooking up some millet patties for the kids. He fell asleep with his thumb in his mouth.
I hate doing this...but to try to stop him from sucking his thumb, I first put a sock on his right he just switched to sucking his left thumb...

So, I put socks on both hands...
and then I found a wet sock because he had sucked through the sock...

So, then a few times, I put on mittens because they are thicker.
He totally does not like it when I take his thumb out of his mouth.
"Ahh...what's a Sunshine Mama to do!"
Well, he weighed 12.2 pounds tonight
which is down 8/10 from weighing 13 pounds last week.
I think he may not be eating as much these
last few days because I am more engorged
and he has been sporting a little fever.
And, then, what does this mean mama go and do?
Pull his thumb out of his mouth.
But I still managed to get him to laugh tonight.
Here are those millet patties I cooked up tonight.
I used crunchy peanut butter in it instead of creamy and things looked nuttier.
Well, I kind of didn't want to go to the gym tonight, but did anyway.
I was able to increase the weights on some of my exercises.
I did a 50 minute leg work-out and a 2 1/2 mile run.
My weight stayed the same this morning, so
so far I've lost 6.4 pounds in 3 weeks and three days.
My calories were around 1,700-1,800 today.
Is it just me or is this weight loss thing taking forever?
Well, I'm glad I have all of you to share it with.
We can do it!! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Have a good Friday!
Sunshine Mama


  1. He is lovely! Those millet patties look good.

  2. SOS Sunshine Mama! I can't find millet. I went out last night and had trouble. Should I go to a special place? I have loaded up on spelt for some baking this week though. Looking forward to that.

    How did I not mention Mr. Lovely first?! He looks great! Look at that hair. He is precious. You can tell he has grown this week. I bet you are glad weekend is here finally. I know I am. I wanted to work out last night, but once I started running, my feet felt like cement. Hate when your run feels like that. I did 2.75 miles and stopped. I am hoping to get a 5 or 6 miler in tomorrow. Here's hoping that one feels much better.

  3. 6.4 pounds in 3 weeks is an awesome amount of weight!!!
    You do not want to lose faster than that when breastfeeding or you will end up with toxins in your breastmilk for the baby...we don't want that...he is way precious!! That is my 2 cents...for what ever it is really worth! lol

    I have only one thumb sucker in my six and it is the baby too!

  4. He is so cute!! My little one is trying to get her thumb but settling for her hand instead. You are doing great with your weight loss. Keep up the great work!!!

  5. He is just to cute for words!! Congrats on the loss!! I know you are going to hit your goal!
