So this week is glucose tolerance test diet week. The thing is, on any other week, I would be overjoyed with having the option to eat non-stop sugar and carbs but when you’re forced to eat them, it never tastes quite as good. I would be happy if I never ate another zebra cake after today. It’s also way more food than I would ever eat normally so it’s kind of exhausting. I was sooo tired after day one. I felt sluggish and gross. Day two was better. This last day is just meh. I just try and eat it as quickly as possible. Pictures below of each meal yesterday. Not pictured are the snacks: one serving of fruit and 2 mini kit kats.
I took some time yesterday to indulge a little bit (in something not related to food). I finally got my hair done. It’s been since February so to say that it’s a little overdue would be an understatement. I’ve been feeling a little haggard lately and I feel like I new person today. I’m getting my brows and toes done next week so I’ll finally feel a little complete.
Also exciting news this week is that I finally got in the baby proofing stuff so sorry Palmer… time to say goodbye to all the fun things in the cabinets like tupperware and the trash can. Mommy is soooooo over picking up cabinet stuff all over the house. I’m also strapping down the dressers and that leaning mirror after I figure out where all these studs are in the house.
