Yay! It is nice when you are able to get used to how your own body works and so not have to feel so caught up in the day to day numbers. I hope your hubby is feeling ok, I know that it can sometimes be a long road with physical therapy with some of those surgeries.
I am doing pretty well. I have relaxed into P2 this time around and it is feeling pretty natural which I am happy about. This last week I mostly ate an African peanut soup (carrots, onion, garlic, ginger, bell pepper, sweet potato, PB, tomato sauce pureeed) and a tofu veggie stirfry over brown rice for my lunch/dinners. Snack choices and breakfast are super easy me on SB. Eating a little candy each day and some Doritos but overall very "good". My biggest struggle right now is trying to maintain my gym workouts, I am past the early enthusiasm and now into that stage of trying to make it a routine and habit, which is where I tend to mess up. Hopefully I will manage to push through, I am definitely feeling much better since I've started. On Tuesday when I was at the gym I weighed and the scale said: 109.6!!! crazy! I don't know the last time I was under 110. I had not eaten much the day before though. Overall it's trended down, I figure I've probably lost around 6-8 pounds in the 2 months I've been on SB. I'm pretty excited with that. Now I just need to tone and strengthen and keep it all up.
I also decided this week to work towards buying a house. I've been rolling the idea around for awhile but thought that saving for a downpayment would be too much effort and time involved. I ran some numbers and did some research and turns out that it should be totally doable without putting in an unreasonable amount of extra work shifts in about a 6-12 month timeframe so I am starting the saving and looking process. Yay! Very exciting
