I have cabbage in my bra LOL
Tuesday, July 07, 2009
This is a literal statement too. I was told today that it could take a year to dry up my breast milk and I am not having it lol. So I looked online and found all kinds of stuff about cabbage leaves and how it has natural properties that dry you up. How funny that today I went to the Farmers Market and bought cabbage. Was that God pointing me in the right direction or what? I love when stuff like that happens. So here I am, with cabbage in my bra.
I was super frustrated earlier today. I weighed and well, of course I am up 2lbs. I swear that ever since I hurt my leg I have been completely unable to lose weight. I go back and forth with the same weight over and over. I am not even losing it by low carbing. As a matter of fact, I was looking forward to the initial water loss, not for the number, but so that I felt less bloated. And you know what? The water weight didnt even budge! I am almost tempted to take water pills. I swear I feel like I have been about to start my period for like a month now. I am that bloated and gross feeling. And I asked the nurse at the obgyn's office about it today and she said since I had a tubal and just stopped breastfeeding a couple weeks ago it could still be up to 6 months before I really have a period. So I guess that means what? Just stay bloated and crampy and gross in the meantime? Oh no no no. It cant happen. Something has to give.
Today I didnt track my food. Actually I have sucked at food tracking for like 3 weeks. But I ate so good today. I seriously had more veggies today than I have had in a while. And I felt so good. I felt good enough to exercise for a long time. GRRR! Too bad my leg was in a ton of pain today LOL. It would hurt the most on a day I feel energized. Oh well. Tomorrow I think I will take the boot cast off and put the smaller brace on and take a walk with the baby. I need to move. Doing nothing is driving me insane.
Ok, well that is it for today. Talk to you tomorrow. And hey, if anyone has any ideas on the whole water weight issue PLEASE let me know. I am ready to try just about anything lol.
