This morning, I woke up to Logan fussing. He slept through the night the previous two nights, but last night he woke up at 3:30am and woke up early at 6:30am. Against my better judgment, when my husband came home from work at 6:40am (he’s swing shift), he pulled Logan out of his bassinet and we cuddled in bed until 8:00am. Now, Logan’s happily swinging and I’m here, sipping my coffee.
Which brings me to my point. I’m so tired! Even when Logan slept through the night the last couple nights, I didn’t sleep through the night. And when I think about it, I haven’t slept through the night since last August, shortly after I found out I was pregnant. Someone tell me, when will I sleep through the night again?? Of course, Logan is absolutely worth every minute of missed sleep. But sometimes I just want to curl up in my bed and pull my blankets over my head!
At any rate, yesterday I posted that I quit counting calories. As you can see, I titled this post “numero uno” because today is number one… day number one of NOT counting calories in years, except for scattered days like holidays and days that I’d given up hope. It was strange to me to pour my coffee with almond milk and eat my English muffin with peanut butter and not quickly pull out my cell phone to log my food into myfitnesspal app. Weird… but exhilarating. So, my focus now is on the quality of my food rather than the quantity of my calories. Does it taste good? Yes? It’s going in my mouth! No more “light” and “fat free” crap – I’m eating the real thing and going to enjoy it. That being said, incorporating more fruits and vegetables and doing more cooking is also a goal of mine. My crock pot is my best friend, especially with Logan and today we’re making red beans with sausage over rice for dinner. A specialty of mine – it’s a recipe I found on Pinterest but adapted to my own tastes.
On that note, time to prep dinner, get it in the crock pot, and head out into the beautiful morning. It’s sunny, without a cloud in the sky and the temp is in the upper 60s. It’s perfect walking weather for Logan and myself!
