We had a major break through last night. Madeline slept in 4-5 hour intervals and was easy to get back to sleep last night! That also means that I *finally* was able to sleep. I was so excited that she went down so fast at her 2am feeding, that I actually woke myself up from all the excitement. But, I was able to fall back to sleep. I bet I got 6 hours last night! I'm really hoping this is a new sleep pattern for her, and not just a growth spurt.
Today was extremely busy. I cleaned the house top to bottom, managed to fit in my workout, play with Madeline, cook, etc. I'm just now getting a moment to sit down and catch up for a moment. I have to admit that I kinda hate my new workout. I'm not exactly a fan because it's actually challenging. But, I know in the next couple of weeks it will become much easier. Tomorrow morning, I'm going to try to get in a run around the neighborhood. I actually haven't been outside since Wednesday. I need to get outdoors more often.
I'm not exactly sure what's in store yet for this weekend. We are trying to coordinate plans with our friends and I know I need to run a few errands (shoe shopping - one of my favorite types of errands).
As far as my weight loss goes, I've lost another 2lbs. Only 3 more to go until I meet my goal, however, I'm completely okay with losing more. My Bellefit also no longer doing anything. I really wish they made an XXS so I could size down. I might try the Squeem, but I don't know yet. It's amazing that just changing my diet has caused the extra weight loss the past two weeks. I'm eating like I did a few years back. I'm almost at my procheerleading weight! I'm basically cutting carbs, eating smaller portions, and eating healthier in general. I used to calorie count, but I don't really need to do that anymore, since I used to eat like this anyway. I do allow myself "cheat" meals and snacks. For instance, tonight I made fried pork chops with gravy, mac n cheese, and fried okra. At least I got a vegetable in there, right?
Okay, since I've obviously been lacking in the photo department, here are a few:
Her first binky!
She loves her mirror. Look at her smile!
Hmm. Do I want food? Or do I want to scream?
