McFatty change..thank goodness!

I thought for sure I was going to gain at least 5 pounds just from the crap I ate this weekend. Friday night we had a date night at Hula Hut and I ate way too much and had a strawberry margartia. I felt soo full afterward..I haven't felt like that in a long time and I don't like it.

We went to Sea World on Saturday and I ate a grilled chicken salad for lunch with some grapes..not bad. After Sea World we went to my sister-in-law's house and grilled some chicken..also not bad. She had little bowls of candy everywhere and I ate too much of that, then Caroline got a bunch of candy in her basket and I didn't want her to eat it, so I did. :(

My parents came over yesterday and I grazed pretty much all day. Yikes. I also only walked twice last week.

I hate that I do this to myself because my weight went down every day this Friday I was down to 180! Of course I rewarded myself with a bunch of junk and I'm back to where I started. Oh well, I'm back on track. The rest of the candy is going into the trash.

Current weight: 183.6
Weight lost this week: 0
Total weight lost so far: 12.2 pounds

Here's a picture from Thursday.

Happy Easter!

This week has been full of Easter activities. Holidays are so much fun now that Caroline can actually participate and understand what’s going on!

On Wednesday we went to the Kyle Easter egg hunt and it was a mad house!

This was the crowd for just the 0-3 year olds.

On Thursday Caroline had a Easter party and egg hunt at school. I don’t have any pictures from that yet. Sad smile

Thursday evening we dyed eggs for the first time. She loved it and threw a fit when the eggs were gone.

On Friday we went to an egg hunt at a park in Austin with a bunch of moms and kids from a website that I frequent. Caroline had a blast! I wish I would have been able to socialize more but I was busy chasing after my little one.

My cousin and his wife came to stay with us last weekend. They were in town for a wedding and asked if we would mind watching their 3 month old while they went to the wedding. We were more than happy to watch her.

I was curious to see how Caroline would do with a little baby around. She did really well. She seemed concerned when the baby cried and tried to give her a bottle and paci to cheer her up.

Here are some pictures. We spent some time outside to hopefully get Caroline to burn off some energy.

We got to use some of our baby stuff that was packed away a while ago.

McFatty Monday..1.8 pound loss

I have to say that I was surprised that I lost weight this week. I didn't track my calories at all, but I did continue to eat the same things that I have been all through the week.

I cheated pretty much all weekend because we went out for Mexican food with family on Saturday. I ordered a taco salad but it had cheese and sour cream on it..I also couldn't resist the chips and salsa. I definitely snacked more than I should have all weekend.

I only walked three days last week but we did spend all day yesterday walking around Sea World.

My plan for this week is to continue to eat the same things all week, minimize my snacking, and not go overboard on the weekend (we'll be back at Sea World this weekend).

Current weight: 183.6
Weight lost this week: 1.8 pounds
Total weight lost so far: 12.2 pounds..very close to where I was when I fell off the wagon.

I don't have a picture on my phone from this week.

Sunday at Sea World..

After doing some research, we decided to get fun passes to Sea World this year. For the cost of a single day admission, you can get a fun pass and go back all summer for free.

We went for the first time today and had a blast. They have this new Sesame Street area with a huge toddler water play area, a toddler play ground, live shows with the characters, and rides for younger kids, one of which is a carousel. I'm sure you've notice that Caroline loves carousels!

We watched a few shows and Caroline loved them. We're definitely going to get out money's worth this summer! FYI, you're allowed to bring a small cooler with drinks and snacks..they don't advertise that very well.

Here are some pictures. I didn't take the camera today so they're all phone pictures.

McFatty Monday..1.4 pound loss

I did pretty well this week. I walked 6 out of 7 days. I tracked my calories Monday through Thursday and made (mostly) healthy choices over the weekend. At the baseball game yesterday I had a grilled chicken sandwich and a fruit cup.

I'm excited that I lost weight this week. I also went down a belt hole and my usually pretty tight jeans are fitting perfectly. I'm still not back to where I was before I went off the wagon in November, but I'm close.

Current weight: 185.2
Weight lost this week: 1.4 pounds
Total weight lost so far: 10.6 pounds

I don't have any pictures of myself on my phone from this past week but I posted some pictures yesterday.

Birthday party and baseball game..

On Saturday we went to a birthday party for a little girl in our neighborhood who is 5 days younger than Caroline. They rented a bouncy castle and snow cone machine and had a bunch of family and friends go over to their house. It kind of made me wish we had Caroline’s party at our house, but at least we didn’t have to clean up the mess.

It’s hard to take a picture these days without her reaching for the camera to see the picture.
Check out the size of that piñata!
She found some open sweet tarts on the ground and ate one.
She liked watching the other kids jump in the castle, but she didn’t want to go in. She has become extremely attached to me lately!
We went to a Round Rock Express baseball game today with my parents and sister. As we thought, Caroline didn’t want to do much sitting and watching. Thankfully my wonderful husband spent most of the game chasing her around the stadium. One nice amenity at this stadium is a playground for kids 10 and under and she had a blast sliding over and over again.

It was kids day at the game and they had pony rides and a little train set up in the parking lot before the game started.

It was super windy today, which was kind of nice because it was also in the mid-90s.

She was pretty worn out after running around for several hours. I thought she was going to fall asleep on me, but she got a second wind and actually started getting really into the game and clapping, of course this was during the 9th inning.

Gearing up for the Summer heat..

It’s getting hot around here! We brought out the water table last weekend and Caroline had a blast playing with it while we did yard work. It was a good investment..she loves it even more this year.

Check out this adorable swimsuit she got for her birthday. It’s right up her has a built-in tutu.

She also loves bubbles! She got a bubble mower and bubble puppy gun thing for her birthday and they’re both big hits!

After playing for a while, she decided to help out with the yard work.

And help water the plants.

Another birthday gift that was a big hit is her Brobee backpack.

Here’s another one of her swimsuits for this year. She has 3..and she’ll get good use out of them because it’s going to be a dry, hot Summer! We’re planning on being at a different pool, river, or splash pad every weekend.

We went to the park in San Marcos today (I love that park!) and Mario watched Caroline while I did a 3 mile walk on the trails around the river.

We’re going to have a fun weekend again this weekend. We have a 2nd birthday party to go to tomorrow in our neighborhood and we’re going to a Round Rock Express baseball game on Sunday with my parents. I’ll post more pictures on Sunday.
