It's wednesday....

This is what my week has been filled with.
His sister hasn't been much better!
I just got back from Dr. Morgan's office. I was totally prepared to hear that I wasn't doing so good again this week- because, let's face it, I wasn't doing so good this week.

I have been stressed.

Owen is teething-which turns him into a little clingy monster- and Melia hasn't been sleeping which turns her into a bit of a monster too, resulting in me not getting to the gym until yesterday (Tuesday). During these stressful moments, there have been a few times where I forgot to eat when I should have and I even had *gulp* 2 ju-jubes on Monday. Otherwise I really tried hard to eat right and not let myself give into the stress addictions that would be Mcdonalds and chocolate and candy!

I was surprised when I got my printout, the work I did do definitely paid off!

(look at me! I actually scanned it in!!)

So here is my BIA for this week.

Phase angle is still about the same- last week was 6.7, this week 6.6
I'm working on it.

Fat Mass - it's going down!! I love seeing that number drop.
Last week I had 64.1 lbs of fat in my body, this week I have 61.2 lbs of fat- goodbye 2.9 lbs of pure FAT!

Oh and my weight... (according to Dr. Morgan's scale) is at 178.0 down from 180.5 last week totaling a 2.5 lb weight loss.
Which means I have gained a little bit of muscle... Check out Lean Body mass, it is up by .4 lbs not tons but still, I'm going to bench pressing my kids soon!

Lately, I have been in a rut with what to eat as well, I felt like my life was salad after salad after salad... I was getting bored. And who wouldn't. BUt I know it's because I don't enjoy cooking (I really want to, but I am a baker at heart) and so thinking up meals and all that just doesn't jive with my brain.

Anyways, last night I decided to make a stir fry. I haven't been a big stir fry fan, but I do like going to Open Sesame and they are a mongolian grill type stir fry restaurant so I thought, might as well try it. It was delicious! 
I used whatever veggies I had on hand (broccoli, red, green and yellow peppers and celery), and for the sauce I sautéed some garlic cloves and shallots that were minced up in some oil. Added some soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, chili powder, and red pepper flakes. Then I added in some sesame seeds at the end, and I forgot to top with cilantro which I had planned on doing.

I think that you will be proud- I know I am- Valentines day came and went and not one piece of candy or chocolate went into my mouth... I was tempted but I held on strong! :)
I talked to Dr. Morgan about my cravings though, and he said I can chew gum. I haven't always been a gum chewer, unless I have some stinky breath or something and can't get to my toothbrush. Yet, I think this will help curb those times I just want something sweet. I bought one of those dessert gums. The creamsicle one. I really want the mint chocolate chip ice cream one though. I think they will do the trick. I'll let you know.
