I thought it was really neat how you could still see the peak of the mountains among the clouds.
The mountains were swirling with clouds this morning and I knew there was a storm moving in so I planned for Olivia and I to go to Jungle Jim’s and spend most of the day so she would be able to take a late nap so she can stay up late because we have to go get Tim from the airport.
Showing off her loot after a fun filled afternoon. A snake sword, a bracelet, a dragonfly finger puppet, and 2 suckers, for 200 tickets won at the arcade games.
She is my adrenaline junkie; she loved the roller coaster and the airplane rides. All the excitement wore her out!
Riding the rides and playing games wore her out; she took a great nap! Hoping for no meltdowns tonight since daddy doesn’t get home til 10!
Do you know how hard it is to smell pizza all day and not get one? HARD, but I managed and this is what my calorie count looks like for today
10:00 16oz water
11:00 grilled market salad and dressing 310 calories
24oz water while at Jungle Jims
4:00 1/2 hobo packet 193
tomato soup (90)
sour cream and onion chips (160)
I made grilled cheese and tomato soup tonight. My milk being spoiled saved me some calories because I had to make the soup with water instead (I prefer it with milk). I also use the chips as crackers, I like it this way! I made one sandwich only which is a big step since usually I eat at least 2. Small win for the day!

I am posting so late because I was up talking to a friend and we frequently get carried away in conversations that last til wee hours in the morning. Thank you Sarah, I needed it this week has been rough, today especially. Tim’s flight was cancelled due to a fire in an FAA tower in Chicago so he will not be home until late Saturday night. My lovely two year old has really missed daddy this week and does not understand why the calendar says daddy is coming home and he isn’t here. So with all the uncertainty today I ate like crap, why cause I am an emotional eater. AND as hard as it is when I can’t control things I eat and it makes me some what happy until I realize I have to write this down and admit how much crap I ate today.

Overall I feel today was a success!
I also made some all natural lotion bars for Olivia’s eczema and they seemed to work tonight, but I will let you know what her skin looks like in a week or so.
Gain of 1.2 lbs this week! BOO, but I expected it.
I want to share a link with you that I found to be uplifting.
I too believe that we are to critical of ourselves as women and mothers. This hit home with me especially now as I struggle to make better choices so that I can become healthier.
All the water today, this has become easy for me though I still pee every 15minutes. I didn’t manage to get up early enough to eat breakfast prior to going to MOPS this morning, but I made good decisions while there and stuck to a reasonable calorie count.
