The biggest event from last week was us starting our diet. We’ve been planning to do the South Beach Diet for some time now since we have had such great success with it in the past. It just takes a lot of planning, especially since I’m not eating dairy while breastfeeding so I have to get somewhat creative. It’s been going well, but I did have a lot of headaches, which is typical when you cut out sugar and caffeine, but I have a feeling breastfeeding has a bit to do with it as well. I need to be sure I get enough calories. We will keep you posted on our weight loss! My goal is to lose 20 lbs by the wedding, and 10 before my first dress fitting, which is on September 16th.
Not much else has been going on. Lark’s sleep habits are much better these days, but she’s still working on some teeth and that throws a wrench in things sometimes. She also got her first big boo-boo…so sad. She fell on a toy while we were playing and it left a great big bruise! Sweet girl was so upset. She’s still working on her standing, and making great progress.
We also got bad news on the house we wanted. We had put an offer in, but it basically became null and void after the bank decided to take it off of the market and relisted at some point as a foreclosure, rather than the short sale it was being sold as. We don’t know how long that will take, so we looked a couple more and weren’t excited about them…the search continues!!
Please excuse my appearance lately…I’ve been extra tired and lazy lately, not to mention, the postpartum regrowth has my hair in an absolute frenzy and I’m running out of ways to contain it!
