The good news was I was down 6 lbs.
Cortney was down 5 (which will tell you which one of us had the most unhealthy eating habits before this)
Day 4 was also the day we noticed our stomachs really getting "cleansed"....tmi...yeah I know.
I went to bed discouraged and mad. I wasn't a good mom at all that day and my patience was thin...real thin.
This morning I woke up and had a rheumatology appointment at 9:30. Its CHICKEN day today though so I got to eat 1/2 a chicken breast for breakfast. I did not feel good this morning at all. I was so weak. I could feel my heart beating so hard. It was a struggle just to get dressed. When I was at the doctor it took them a couple of tries to get my blood pressure and I thought "oh boy maybe this diet is dangerous..." but they got it and I was fine. Afterwards I had blood drawn and was nervous it would make my weak self faint. haha. However, around this time I was starting to feel the chicken. Let me tell you it did wonders for my body. I feel soooooo much better today. I have had a couple of chicken breasts and some cherry tomatoes. Chicken is so much yummier than cabbage. :)
Other side effects that all 3 of us have noticed.... It has been hard for our bodies to regulate body temperature. We all have been going to sleep with freezing cold feet, and have been cold wearing hoodies during the day. Along with that, I got up to clean yesterday and was sweating in seconds.
Another big one is that we are all having a REALLY hard time sleeping. We have all been tossing and turning all night and having our minds racing.
I feel so much more optimistic today. Plus we are almsot done.
Theo had his appointment with kids on the move...
You gotta love (or hate) henry's blurry photography of the appointment. I just can't believe how long my hair is.
The appointment went great and the lady was so nice. We went through the evaluation and she decided that Theo didn't qualify because he wasn't delayed enough. He was the most delayed in physical and cognitive development but still was out of their ranges. I was really happy about that...that is great news.
such a happy baby!
Also the boy started climbing this week. That's an annoying but exciting milestone.
