I have a crazy busy week at work this week, so I may not have any spare time to drop a post in the next few days. However, I wanted to start off the week posting a little something.
First off, WEIGHT UPDATE. I last talked about this here. So I weighed myself last week, and I was at 142.5lbs. Pretty good! That is pretty much my pre-pregnancy weight (but obv things are shaped a bit differently now). Although, I haven't weight myself since, and I had Freddy's this weekend, so who knows what it is now ;). I haven't been counting calories or putting an effort into exercise. I have just been generally trying to eat a bit better. Also, being at work, I just eat less in general I think, because I am not consistently next to my kitchen. I usually have a breakfast bar in the morning (lately Luna Blueberry Bliss- YUM!) with coffee. My coffee has soy milk and sugar in it. For lunch, I may buy something from around town - like a sandwich - or bring a frozen meal from home. I usually buy something from Amy's Organics or just a low cal Safeway meal. I'm fancy, what can I say? I will have a few pieces of fruit throughout the day. Dinner is a free for all - whatever is around. We will usually do some sort of take out at least once during the week.
When I can come up for air at work, I will put some brain power into actually eating well. I just don't even have the space in my head to think too much about it right now. Unfortunately, I am the type of person to make myself feel better through food, as an award for making it through a stressful day. Dammit if a gooey brownie just doesn't taste better when opposing counsel is pissing me off.
Ben had his 6 month check up on Friday. He is still in the high 20s percentile wise for weight and high 80s percentile wise for height. The doc said that he is just a tall and skinny baby, and that is what is normal for him. He weighs 16 lbs 3 oz and is 27.5" tall. Everything checked out great!
PSLs. Fall is in the air already here. I know that it is technically still summer, but as soon as September rolled around, there was a chill in the air in the morning. Also, the day is shortening. While I love the change of seasons, I DREAD the dark mornings and dark evenings. How sad will it be that I will only get to see Ben when it is dark out during the week? I will try not to dwell too much on that. So with Fall comes all of the pumpkin flavored stuff! (See how I eat my feelings???) Did you know that annoying people call pumpkin spice lattes PSLs? Well they do. I haven't had a PSL yet this season, but I did buy some pumpkin flavored K-cups at Dunkin Donuts, and they are tasty. I recommend.
Embrace the season! I am very excited for October, because work should be at a more respectable pace AND I get to decide what Ben will be for Halloween. I am leaning towards the traditional pumpkin...BUT WHO KNOWS!
