Wednesday Weigh-In: First Day of School!

16 Comments 1406 views

I’m down 1.4 this week?!? That was surprising. I haven’t been very diligent in the diet department, falling into a pattern of night time snacking again. Actually, I haven’t been very diligent this whole month which is why I’m only down 3 lbs for August, BUT…

I’m living the life I want to live and that’s more important to me than a number on the scale will ever be.

wow… I’ve come a long way.

So besides weighing in, I saw my Little Guy off today. It was the first day of 1st grade! Why do I have a feeling Kindergarten was the tipping point when it comes to the kid growing up. I have this sinking suspicion the next 12 years will be gone before I know it. School has a habit of fast forwarding time. At least it seems that way to me.

Just look at him! He’s all grown up!

(P.S. I don’t know if you can tell but the right side of my face is all swollen from yesterday’s fall, I covered up the bruise with makeup so other Moms at the bus stop wouldn’t think the Husband beats me. lol)

I decided not to run or workout today. I’ve been battling a small headache since the fall and my shoulder is really sore. It’s amazing how much damage a simple trip can do. I’m hoping to make up the workout tomorrow at the gym and then do tomorrow’s run on Friday, but we’ll see. With Little Guy back in school I need to find my groove with a new schedule.

I was able to finish the new GreenLiteBites page today. Click here to check out my School Lunch Ideas page and see Little Guy’s lunch for tomorrow. I’m glad I got it done. It will keep me motivated to change his lunches up a bit.

Other than that, I shared a short post about Baby Milestones. Little Bean is entering a new stage. He’s 6 months this month!

Ok, must go. I’m exhausted!

Kept my food journal on twitter today.

    OMG! I had to laugh because I am an absolute klutz as well. I have a huge bruise on the side of my arm – source unknown; I’m just a klutz…

    Roni, please don’t take the headache lightly. I don’t mean to be an alarmist, just a pragmatist hopefully a wise, health-conscious woman—but many a concussion goes ignored and can be dangerous, If you hit your head in your fall and you have a headache, you should be checked out. Really.
    Be well and sure, you are responsible for many lives and your own.

    I can’t believe how hard you fell :( Glad you covered it up with make up though – you don’t want to be the cause of whispers and rumors ;)

    “I’m living the life I want to live” – I love this quote!

    Definitely be careful running at night :( when can you start running in the mornings again?

    I agree with dottie. That was my thought exactly after I read your post. Especially with the headache and swelling.

    you’ve just about caught me – and my 5 month plateau at 154. Sigh. And since I am only 5’6″, I need to get out of this slump! You on the other hand – look great!

    Love the pic of you and your 2 babies! :) And, yes….it will continue to go by this fast…even faster…as your oldest baby grows up! Believe me…my oldest graduated from high school last year and went off to college…and I swear, just yesterday, his kindergarten teacher was kicking me out of the room on his 1st day of school. Just yesterday…! :) Don’t blink, as they say, because you will miss it!

    I feel for you. My big guy starts all day kindergarten tomorrow and I have been having such anxiety over it. I just feel like it’s the signal that he’s no longer my “baby”. My lil guy starts preschol on wednesday which doesn’t help matters. Thank you sooooo much for the lunch idea posts since I am a newbie at this. When having to pack lunches in the past I try to do a sandwich on whole wheat bread with some fruit and a yogurt. He usually does pretty good with that but not always. I hope school went well for Ryan. The boys are so cute and getting big.

    You’re right about time speeding up when school starts. It seems like yesterday that my oldest went off to first grade. He started 7th last week…..I feel like all I did was blink!

    My wife and I had our first child in March. Seeing the growth he has made in the past 6 months, it is just unbelievable. I know that the next thing I know, he’ll be going off to the 1st day of first grade. Everyone has told me to hold onto each moment, because they grow up so quickly. I’m starting to realize that before my very eyes. You have two beautiful/handsome children. I never know if you’re supposed to call boys beautiful, so I just say both!

    Ok… I read your blog daily, for about five years now… and I’ve never commented… but I had to post and say that I strongly agree on seeing a doctor… facial swelling and a headache after hitting your head, especially with forceful impact, should really be checked out… please go see someone… your picture in this post says it all… you are too important to just let it go.
