almost a month

of almost no sugar


almost no cheese


I've lost a couple of pounds! With very little exercise, because I've not been walking to the park much at all. And results anyway!!! Yay! My blood pressure is moderate. Not good yet. Not back to normal. But not crazy high either. So a more restrained good job, me.

The no sugar (or very little) thing is not as hard as the last time I tried it. That was a year or so ago and I wasn't really very motivated, no health issues or anything, just doing it on a whim. I guess when it matters, I have will-power. Go figure.

All I can think about is our lost cat. She got out two days ago and we haven't seen her since. I am worried. She is the sweetest cat and not equipped to live outside.

Liam's Big Week

Liam rolled over for the first time today! Besides that, he's gotten even more grabby. He grabs toys (on purpose) and my clothes. He loves to grab cloth and pull it up over his head. He also discovered his feet this week. And he laughed on his own; I wasn't laughing (I was yawning) and he just laughed!


He's also fifteen pounds. More than twice his birth weight. He's huge!

Three Months

Three months as in...

The adorable munchkin is three months old.

But also:

I have three months to lose weight and lower my blood pressure, which was never high before I was pregnant, or my doctor is putting me on medication. She wanted to put me on meds today, but I promised to start charting my blood pressure every day and exercising more and eating better. Since the fires are making the air unhealthy, I cut back on walking. My doc said to go walk at the mall. Is the air any better there?
