My absence can only be explained in one word: FLU.
My whole house has had it, including the 3 month old. NOT FUN!
My husband lost 5lbs. I. Lost. ZERO!!!!
Yes, even the flu doesn't hinder my appetite. Figures!
I know exactly what I did wrong and I am grateful that I didn't gain. Dealing with 2 sick kids (and a husband) leaves little time for preparing healthy meals and snacks. I found myself starving at certain points of the day and grabbing whatever was on hand: cake, crackers, girl scout cookies. Basically, anything quick and bad for me that I could eat while doing other things.
And this week is no better because we are away. It is so hard to stay on track when you're not at home. I have felt like complete junk for 2 days because of the soda, ice cream, heavy meals. So, yesterday I went to the store and bought some healthy stuff because at least for breakfast and lunch I want to behave.
I just wish that the bad stuff didn't taste so good... I NEED STRENGTH!!!
And a faster metabolism!
