Stupid diet – day 3 out of 14

It’s 7am and I’m already hungry!

Aurora went to bed at 2am and woke up at 5, so… yeah.

We are now watching cartoons and I’m this close (insert tiny space here) to drinking her milk.

She is like an angel lying next to me. She looks at me and smiles and hugs me for no reason… It’s like she’s happy I’m her mom and we are finally together.

Yes, I had to take a picture so the 60 year old me can look at it and wonder where time went (and be mad at the 33 year old me for thinking she is old already).

Hello, 60 year old me! How much do you weight? Are these stupid, pointless 14 days over yet?

Is there an app where you can upload your picture and see what you’re gonna look like in the future with the options being if you stop smoking / driking / eating wrong now or not? Did I just create that? I’d pay 25 cents for that! Dude, I’d probably pay a dollar!

That Dora is the weirdest cartoon ever, since we are -not- on the subject. Right?

Omg, she actually fell asleep! Can I have a chocolate to celebrate? Who am I talking to? I’m SO hungry.

Anyway, all  day 3 stress came not only for the fact that the girls have a flu that’s been keeping me up most of the nights, nor from the fact that I’m hungry. It’s actually because, yesterday, after starving myself like crazy and  going to my ballet class even though my head was killing me all day, I still GAINED 3 pounds! Fine, it could be a temporary water retention thing, but it’s still pretty irritating (specially when you’re already irritated).

But so we move on… after all, 14 days shouldn’t take longer than 14 days to pass.

Day 3 menu:

Lunch consisted on 2 toasts and salad. I could have added 2 boiled eggs here, but I saved those for latter. I had those around 5 pm ’cause I had the worst headache and forgot to take a picture -that’s how fast I ate-!

   And this was dinner:  Dinner was actually pretty good , or maybe any food tastes better when you are hungry like I was.  I obviously almost passed out during ballet, being the fat “kid” that I am, but the adrenaline actually made me feel a lot better than I was feeling before I went to class. Maybe it’s endorphins… Whichever!

It’s the end of day 3, finally!

Good night, people!

14 day diet – day 2

Day 2 was hard. Not the diet, but the actual day. Both my girls are sick and can’t breathe through their noses, which keeps me up most of the night. I, like all moms, don’t understand why we can’t choose to get sick instead of our kids. It’s the kind of day when you deserve a nice cup of cocoa when they finally fall asleep and things calm down, I didn’t care about the stupid diet at 5:40 am when my baby was trying to breathe, but I decided to stay strong ’cause I’m sick and tired of living with all this extra weight.

So, this was day 2:

This was supposed to be breakfast… but I woke up pretty late, from being up all night (the joys of being unemployed) so I actually ate this around 5pm:   My first meal of the day was what considered a pretty satisfying lunch , especially compared with the day1 meals:

That’s stake and all-the-wrong-fruit. We only had bananas and papaya so, that’s what I had, even though we all know bananas are pretty caloric.

And dinner was all you could eat ham… it turns out, I can eat a LOT of ham.

Before I went to bed (at least I thought I was going to bed at that time) I had actually GAINED 1 pound. So, I looked at my ankles and they were HUGE! I took a diuretic ’cause I figured I was retaining water for some reason (diet soda is the reason, people) and I actually woke up 4 pounds lighter. Water retention is a bˆ%$#. I did ask the doctor if I should take the diuretics, though. Don’t go around taking those, thinking they’re gonna make you lose weight. It’s not the way it works, despite the way I’ve worded my sentence above!

By morning, my girls were happy and playing. They’re still a bit sick, which breaks my heart, but I’m doing everything I can to make them feel better.

Day 3 is here and I have so much on my mind I’m not hungry at all anymore… we’ll see if I can go through with this!

Fingers crossed!

Take care =)
