Monday was a pretty good day. I awoke knowing I needed to weigh in, knowing I planned to start gluten-free, and knowing I had work to do. Unfortunately, also had major headache. Anyway...
-handful of cashews
-handful of dark chocolate M&Ms
-8 ounce blueberry lowfat yogurt
-3 slices homemade rice and potato flatbread
-peanut butter and black raspberry all-fruit on flatbread
-1 bowl homemade lentil and bacon "goop"
-1/2 bowl rice
-salad with 1000 island dressing
Exercise and Notes:
-lifted dog up 15 times per side, even right side with messed up shoulder
-walk around block with dog after dinner

Except they were closed. Geez - weird.
-no sodas? Check
-no ordering in or going out? Check

Hubby has never been a dad before, and we'll be married 2 years this April. He doesn't have the hang of it. You need to pick your battles, and not pick on the kid about everything. Bowl to lips.

THIS is my major stress. I need them to get along. I **NEED** that. Desparately.
