Well this will be a fun week. Be sure to head over to Lauren’s blog to see her post and visit other participants.
Ha. I have now lost 5 pounds. Now don’t go giving me any high fives or anything, let me explain. I lost one pound during week one through three, that one is legit. Then I lost 5 pounds between Saturday at 10:30pm and Sunday at 10:00am. Yeah. You read that right. I threw up until there was literally NOTHING in my body. I have gained a pound of it back, so I am at a net loss of 5 pounds. I know I will gain the rest back now that I am back to eating 3 meals a day. IT IS NOT ABOUT THE WEIGHT, IT IS ABOUT BEING HEALTHY. Right??? It’s a little about the weight.
I walked and ran the equivalent of 2 miles between my bed and the toilet on Saturday night. I also did the equivalent of about 62,000 crunches while puking. If you think I’m joking, get a stomach virus. It is serious business. Also pre-virus, Stephen and I did Netflix yoga one night. It isn’t the workout kind but stretching is a form of exercise in my mind.
I don’t really have one. I feel like the fact that I’m actually eating food is a success. After throwing up for 2 straight hours on Saturday night (plus other stuff…) and battling a fever and serious aches, I didn’t eat at all on Sunday. On Monday I had a small, plain waffle for breakfast so I had the energy to move and go to work, and then in the afternoon I had a handful of Goldfish and was THE MOST FULL PERSON ON THE FACE OF PLANET EARTH AND PROBABLY ANY OTHER PLANET TOO. So the fact that I ate a giant helmet of ice cream and drank two beers at the Astros game tonight is a huge success. I mean, wait. What?
Last week I gave you a recipe for snack grapes. I was about to give you a recipe for peanut butter on a toasted English muffin but that one seems a little simple. So I’ll just post this screen shot of my favorite crockpot carnitas that we had on Tuesday. (I had to take this screen shot because the recipe I had originally found on Pinterest has been removed because someone marked it as spam. CARNITAS ARE NOT SPAM.) (Also, use whatever spices you have. I have never added coriander and it is still delicious. Serve them on corn tortillas with lime juice, chopped tomatoes, and feta. Yes feta.)
I opened this on Monday at 9:00 in the morning. I finished it at 4:45 in the afternoon. I was mighty proud.
