Well, I didn't want to post here without my pictures again - because I've been promising for a little while now! I just need to get my ultrasound picture scanned, and I'll be all ready to go. I figured that posting is better than not posting at all.:-)
I should start off by saying that my eating over the last few days has not been great. It hasn't been horrible - but has involved many junkie and unnecessary items. I feel like a horrible mum-to-be! I was doing REALLY well. In fact, my mother-in-law commented that it looks like I haven't gained any weight except around my belly - which is a good thing. The truth is, I have an excuse to jut my belly out now - the old "fluffiness" with baby growth included.:-)
Hubby and I rented movies on Saturday night, and we devoured a VERY large bag of kettle chips and dip. Plus we had burritos for dinner. Plus, we went to a wedding the evening before. And the night before that, I went out for dinner with a friend where I had spring rolls, pad thai, and ice-cream. UGH.
I'm trying to get back on track today. I still haven't eaten that peanut butter cup I've been craving for a couple of weeks now - so that feels good. I'm planning on going for a LONG walk this evening as well. It's really hard once you've fallen off the wagon! It feels good lying on the ground for awhile, let me tell you.
Anyway, pictures will definitely follow, but I baked chocolate-chip cookies for the first time!!! From the "La Dolce Vegan" cookbook. I felt soooo domesticated. The only problem was that I didn't realize cookies expanded in the oven (I know, silly of me) - and they all sort of joined together because they were too close together on the tray. Like one GIGANTIC cookie or something. They were very, very yummy. The hubby gobbled them up eagerly - so that's a good sign. He even protested when I tried to wrap a few up for his younger brother last night.:-) His younger brother tried one, and didn't even flinch. I didn't even tell him they were vegan and had tofu in them. He just kept eating them. COOL!
Tonight for dinner is whole-wheat fusilli with shredded carrot, broccoli, celery, roasted onions, and mushrooms. I'm adding chick-peas for protein. I just need to peel myself out of this computer chair and start chopping. That's right. Maybe if I sit here and keep typing the pasta will get made for me....but probably not.
Have a great night everyone!
