I slept terribly last night!! I don't know what it was, but my anxiety was through the roof, and I was convinced that I kept hearing noises in the house. The first time sounded like our bedroom door opening and shutting, which nothing will bring you from dead sleep to awake in 2 seconds like that noise. The second time it sounded like someone threw something against our bedroom window. With our cray neighborhood nothing would surprise me, but I think I was probably dreaming it. I had a really hard time getting back to sleep after both of those incidents. As a result I was moving REALLY slow this morning, and it was so hard to get motivated to exercise!
Well the scale treated me as I suspected it would this morning and I had a small gain, but I was only up by 0.20 pounds. Really not the biggest deal, I know that is all due to the awesomeness (not) of being a woman, and a woman with crazy tummy issues on top of all that! I am pretty confident that next Monday the scale will be down again. As a little added "don't sweat it" motivation, my measurements reflected loss. I lost a half inch from my neck (!!!), an inch from my waist and an inch from my hips. Oh, and a random half inch from my right thigh, lol. It's funny, I didn't have that same, "oh I can tell Richard is doing a number on my abs" feeling last week, but clearly things are happening what with the waist and hip measurements. I'll take it.
I felt so tired today that I really didn't do as much as I wanted. Molly and I went for a 45 minute walk, then I came home and did my Stomach Formula Day 13. I tried out two new ballet videos, but they were just stretching/warmup type things. The girl who does them is very good, but the videos have no sound so that makes it a little more difficult to follow along. The foot video was very interesting, it's the type of stretching I don't do enough of for my feet. The links are below if you are interested. I poked around on Youtube and found a full length Zumba video that looks promising, so that will be another aerobics video I can add to the mix. Oh, and I ordered another Sweatin' To The Oldies video, #3. ;) I remember hating #2 as a kid for some reason, I can't remember if it was just lame or what, but we had and did #3 a lot, so I just got that one. I love the first video, but I don't want to get sick of it. I've pretty much memorized it at this point!

RSSF Day 13
Food has been on point today, and I can tell whatever hormonal stuff was going on with me has calmed down, because I don't feel quite as strong of an urge to snack. I again ate a bigger breakfast, so I was able to make it to lunch without feeling famished. I also forgot how great jicama is, not because it tastes all that amazing (I always have to have True Lime on it), but it has tons of fiber and is very crunchy. It really does fill you up!
Breakfast: Oat bran, prunes, Applegate turkey sausage links
Lunch: Homemade black bean patty, cup of Simple Truth tomato soup, jicama slices with lime
Dinner: Chicken and Dumplings
Dessert: Apple slices with peanut butter and chocolate chips
