Hi Ladies! I'm here... Late for me, but addicted to having the internet at my house now. heh heh It's been FOREVER since we've had the 'net at home. (Plus, I ordered myself my first laptop today.
I'll be taking it with me on my deployment.)
Back tracking since I haven't really said much since Thursday morning. Easter egg coloring went quite well. DS really enjoyed himself and the colors turned out surprisingly good for brown eggs. They weren't the traditional pastel colors, but more modern deco colors. DS liked them nonetheless! (Lisa, how did your kiddos like the Easter clues? It may be in your journal, but I haven't gotten there yet...)
The Easter Bunny (DS Great Aunt) came for a visit at the extended family Easter party on Saturday. DS got a total kick out of that. I was really pretty Beachy for most of Saturday with the exception of the dinner: I had one dinner roll (looked at least partially WW), a small scoop of cheesy potatoes and a small piece of MIL's stawberry angelfood dessert. Everything else was within the SB standards and I got my veggies in!
On Sunday, my parents came over and hid DS's colored Easter eggs while we were at church. So, when we got home, he was so excited to see the Easter Bunny had come (including a nice stuffed basket full of goodies). We had steak, sweet potatoes, green beans and salads for dinner. I made this SB friendly Inside Out Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake
for dessert. I did have two small-medium sized slices of it, but that was my only sweet stuff for the day. Later that night, I ate a piece of leftover sirloin steak that was probably the size of the palm of my hand and drank a ton of water.
Monday, I did weigh in at 158 lbs. Yes, up 5 lbs from last Monday. Ugh. However, I think it was a little artificial due to eating some stuff late and drinking a bunch of water late on Sunday. I don't do this often during the week, so this is why I am changing my weigh in to Wednesday. Just to level things off.
I can't remember all what I ate yesterday, but it was Beachy. I think I might have had around 5 mini robin eggs (malted milk balls). That would've been my only "cheat". I resisted the friendship bread that sat on my desk at work!
As my days wind down at work (last day is 4/14), I am sure my replacement will do a fine job. I had already been working with her for the past 3.5 years (she moved over from Marketing Communications to Product Marketing). I'm slowly getting nervous as my actual time ticks down. I am down to around 35 days until I actually leave (May 9).
Anyway, it's getting late and my head is starting to hurt. Time for bed! I did see all of your posts and I don't want to "ignore" them, but I'm already windy enough without addressing each of them right now!
Thank you all for stopping by and I hope I've somewhat answered the questions that did pop up over the past 6 days!4/6/2010Breakie
