Life has definitely gotten away with me again and I have neglected my blog. Zoe's sleep habits have been taking all my energy. Thankfully I am glad to say that last week we put an end to the 2 hour wake ups. It was bliss to finally get a good nights sleep. Now she isn't sleeping through the night but she is getting up only 1 or 2 times a night.

Then Zoe and I went to Ottawa to celebrate my sister in law's 30th birthday. It was a great weekend and Zoe was an absolute doll. She slept well, perfect on the plane and wasn't super clingy. I did indulge in tons of sushi and Korean Barbeque. I did not eat well at all. It is tough when you are travelling and staying at someone else's house.

So how is my weight loss? Well....two weeks ago I had a great loss of 1.8 lbs and then unfortunately this week I gained 3lbs! So I am still down 1.8lbs. I was pretty disappointed about gaining 3lbs, last time I did weight watchers I could have a bad weekend and not gain or barely gain. But things are different....I guess just another way children change us. My mom did have some encouraging words that I am going to remember and maybe even put it on my fridge. She reminded me that watching my weight is still helping me even if I am not losing like I want because I am not gaining. And that is so true, especially after what happened this summer where I gained it all back.

So I am back on the wagon and my goal this week is to drink 2L of water every day. Mike has been freezing 1L bottles of water and that has been helping him a ton. So I have asked him to help me out with drinking water because I have not been doing well at all with the water. Mike has been doing some online research about weight loss and found that there is a significant link between water consumption and weight loss. So here is to a good week!

I am sorry to hear that you gained.. but again... you are still trying and haven't given up, so that is fantastic! I lost 2 lbs since monday.. so I am happy with that. I have been drinking as much water as I can... Ice water.. if it is cold it takes more calories to heat it up to your body temp..helping you lose weight! I am glad Zoe was so good for you and that you had a great time! You deserved it! Keep up your healthy positive attitude and you will succeed! :)
