I can't believe a week has gone by since my last post. Wow!
My week ended better last week than it started. My boss finally remembered my birthday on Friday. DH made dinner Wednesday night. He said pancakes sounded good so I made him make them. THEN he tells me over the weekend--when I was still razzing him about not getting me ANYTHING for my birthday--that he plans to take me shopping so we can pick out an elliptical. Well, then, WHY didn't you tell me that ON MY BIRTHDAY?!?!?! ARGH. Men. They just don't get it.
I was reading Roni's blog about her over indulgent weekend and all the comments and I realized something. Since I have been pregnant, I don't go back for seconds at dinner. I used to before I got pregnant and if I had the points I definitely would. Even last night, we had spaghetti. I ate my one plate and I was done. I think it helps that sometimes at night I still feel a little yucky from the day so I don't eat as much. But if I do eat more (maybe a snack after dinner, which I RARELY do) I pay for it later. So that is a good thing and it helps! I haven't stepped on the scales and I won't until next week(I have an appointment on Monday). Seeing it go up is too discouraging even though it is supposed to be going up!
I finally bit the bullet Friday night and pulled out the maternity tops. I was down to 2 or 3 shirts that fit and even those were a little snug. I just felt so fat in them. So I wore a maternity shirt out Friday night for the first time and I felt SO MUCH BETTER!!! I didn't feel fat at all. I will have DH take a picture this week and I will get it posted.
Have you all started your Christmas shopping yet? I've got my list of who I'm buying for and know what a few of them will be getting. I need to get started b/c I only have 1 free weekend in December. AACK!!! And that's the very beginning of December. I'm having the hardest time with my son. I have NO CLUE what to get him. He's 3 and a half and this year I am stuck. Any ideas out there for me??? He's got GeoTrax, he's got a kitchen (and he loves it!), he's out of the Elmo stage. I am just lost. I think DH and I are going to go out on Saturday and spend the day together and we might have to hit Toys R Us so we can get some ideas. I told DH he had to help me decide this year and if he didn't I would get him a drum set. :)
I think that's it for now. I will try to post more this week. I will definitely post a picture of DS in his Halloween costume. He is so excited to go trick-or-treating! He even sings the song...trick or treat, smell my feet..... I taught him that. :)
Have a great OP Tuesday all!!!
