Wednesday, September 26th
The girls both had games last night, thankfully at the same place. I left the house at 5:05PM with Pumpkin and Butter Bean in tow. Hubby showed up with Peanut at about 6:30PM. He took Pumpkin home after her game, at about 7:30PM, and I got home with Peanut and Butter Bean at 8:40PM. The kids didn't get to bed until 9PM and I didn't have it in me to get them up at 5AM today. I let them sleep in a little and took them to school before my off-site meeting.
I'm so grateful that there's no practices or games today!
5:30AM: (breakfast) omelet made with 3 small eggs, homemade pork sausage browned with onions and garlic, about 2-3 T. of butternut squash, and about 1 cup shredded spinach
11:45AM: (lunch) leftover butternut squash lasagna
7:30PM: (dinner) pulled pork, roasted butternut squash, mixed greens sauteed with bacon and onions, cole slaw
Snacked today on pistachios (surprise! not) and coconut flakes. Oh, and there were fresh strawberries at my morning meeting. I had a lot of those. Maybe 10? Probably accounts for at least a portion of the high lunch postprandial.
I had my first coaching session today as a part of a company-sponsored 6-month Healthy Weight Coaching Program. It went pretty well. I committed to walk at least 3 days per week, 20 minutes per day. My plan is to either do yoga or lift weights the other 2 weekdays. My next session is in 3 weeks.
I'm a little frustrated that my weight loss has stopped again. I have 4 more days on my Whole30. I'd like to be able to say I lost 15 pounds on it; I have 2 to go. Unfortunately, I'm in the last week before I start my cycle, which usually means a 5-pound weight gain. So, I might have to make this a Whole 35. ;)
