I like to look at the day's food plan and find something dessert like that excites me to look forward to for the day. I'm a Hales, and us Hales's have an insatiable sweet tooth. Back in college one of my boyfriends even made an analogy, like my dad "eating a stack of cookies," which my dad sometimes did all at once. Regardless the meal plan yesterday had raisins. RAISINS. How disappointing. Raisins are not dessert. RAISINS ARE NEVER DESSERT.
^^That is dessert.
Ben brought home a Santa cookie for me to consume when I throw the dieting out the window for the holiday break, but whatever, we both ate it after dinner. lol Then I took a 3 hour nap! The day was full of many Christmas miracles.
But to my credit, it's been kind of a rough week functioning let alone making meals. B did almost a three hour stretch in his crib last night, which is a record by almost two hours since we stopped the swaddling last month. It's hard to stay motivated when you're behind 300 hours of sleep (no lie, I did the math ha). My diet accounts for no Mountain Dew which is where this enters the program:
Amazon. Genius. I only chew one a day but it goes a long way for me since my caffeine consumption has always been fairly low.
It's a good thing baby boy is so incredibly adorable. GOSH I LOVE HIM.
He is a great night time sleeper, just not in his crib. I wish there was a magic trick to teach him that his lonely, hard crib mattress is his favorite. :)
Have a nice weekend. Only 6 days until Christmas!!! This is the best week of the entire year. Soak it up!!
