Day Four

Today was B-A-N-A-N-A-S!  (Think "No Doubt" song) 

I have to say it was a fantastic day!  I am feeling healthier than I have in a long time, the kids went to daycare and their teachers complimented my obvious loss (love them!), and my husband has been staring at me and complimenting me all night.  Woohoo.  Talk about some major motivation.  I was kind of hungry on this day...up to 8 bananas and 8 glasses of skim milk, plus soup, of course.  I kept myself pretty busy around the house and actually didn't find it too hard to stay on course.  As I mentioned above, I have extra energy and a little pep in my step these days!  I was talking to my uncle tonight and just telling him about the changes that have come since we have been eating all fresh fruits and veggies this week.  Normally, for ease and financial reasons, I would buy all canned.  This week, however, I haven't opened a single can - for myself OR the kids - and the energy level is higher, the grocery bill is higher (ha!), and the poor kiddos have been killing the bathroom.  Sorry if that is TMI. 

So, I'm really excited for tomorrow.  Up to 20 ounces of BEEF (mmmmm) and 6 tomatoes.  The soup is making me cringe at this point, but I am planning to add browned beef to it for breakfast to get my day started right!  I have another busy day planned, but this one is all errands OUT of the house, so it will be much easier to avoid the fridge.

Another exciting note - the kids and I took a walk today!  It was only around the block, but I think I added a bit of an edge to it by letting each child bring their own tricycle and scooter!  I was pushing Zoe in a stroller, Jack was riding a scooter, and Conner and Henry had the trikes.  Oh goodness.  It was quite a trip.  I have to say they did a great job of staying in line (mostly) and as close to the curb as possible.  A couple of times they were a little too close to the curb.  Ha, ha.  We survived and met some nice neighbors in the process!  So, as I said before...baby steps, but I am happy to know the neighborhood walk is possible even with 4 young'ns.  Look at these cuties.  :)  A handful, for sure, and they keep me on my toes, but I wouldn't trade 'em for anything!

Good night to you all and here's to a wonderful (beefy) Friday!!
