Losing the wheat belly - a look back at Day 8, which was yesterday and what I'm eating today, Day 9:

Yesterday was SUCH a busy day, I had to force myself to remember to eat! :)

I did end up eating leftover lettuce wraps for dinner before heading off to the PTA meeting.

And I didn't eat any of the Angel food cake I made for the meeting. I didn't truly want a piece!

Today has been a whirlwind so far.

Even though it's a school holiday, I still felt the morning rush to get us all up, dressed, fed, and packed to head off to a morning activity. We went to Pump It Up's open playtime from 10:00-12:00pm and the kids had a blast! It was so crowded though that I felt lucky we even got it. There was a line at the door at 10 till opening! The kids just love that place and it really helps them burn off some steam. I was able to read a few chapters of The Fault in Our Stars on my Kindle and today's paper.

BREAKFAST: 1 whole egg plus 2 egg whites scrambled with a slice of bacon. I heated up the very last portion I had of this and gobbled it up just before running out the door. I didn't even get my morning latte that David makes me. Boo! :(

SNACK: 6 raw almonds and an apple is what I ate at Pump It Up while the kids played.

LUNCH: Once Nolan was down for his nap, I helped Emily with some of her home work and set her up in her room with a movie - she said she isn't feeling good and wasn't hungry. Please, do not let any of us come down with anything, our Gram is coming for a visit tomorrow! I ate the very last portion of leftover lettuce wraps, about 1/4 of the recipe. I also drank 8oz fat free milk.

Now, it's all about preparing for a very busy weekend.

I need to do our meal planning and make our grocery list. I also need to vacuum, put away two loads of laundry, and clean our bath room. My mom comes tomorrow morning and it's just the motivation I need to tidy up around here. :) We also have our first Girl Scout cookie booth of the season Saturday afternoon and we promised Emily we'd take her to see the new Lego Movie. Busy busy busy!
