Hope you're having a good week so far. I have had a lot on my plate and on my mind in the last few weeks but I am slowly but surely getting back to me.
I have heard the saying "the mind is a terrible thing to lose". Stress does make things a lot more challenging but I am working out and with J's support and JOE's love, things are starting to come together.
Anyways, back to PDW! Some of these are pictures I took a couple of weeks ago.
|Trying to lose weight for me means eating fewer carbs and more proteins. That was my dinner. An italian sausage chicken patty, a slice of american cheese, ketchup and pepperdew peppers. YUM!|
|So I tries to make Akara (bean cakes) again and this time, they were much fluffier and yummier too!|
|Practicing my photography skills|
|JOE's nanny just got back from her home Country and brought us some oriental sweets. EVERYTHING is YUMMY! The empty spaces were consumed by me BEFORE J even got home! In my defense, it has nuts and nuts are good for weight loss right?|
|This was just too funny! JOE sleeping in our bed. She's been teething and for the last week, she has woken up either at 2am or at 4am and wouldn't calm down until we bring her to our bed. Mommy and daddy need sleep so if this'll soothe her, then so be it.|
|Last week, JOE's nanny was on vacation so J and I got to watch JOE on alternate days. This was on day 2 for me. JOE and I went to the mall for a bit. After she played at the playground, we went to view the giant tank they have at the mall.|
|Then got some frozen yogurt.|
|Look at that confident and determined walk. My model in the making :-).|
|On day 1, we went to the library. JOE loves it there but I don't think the other readers were too pleased when we were leaving because JOE decided to throw a tantrum and screamed her way all the way to the car!|
So this was funny. I made crepes 2 weekends ago and we had one last one that I had saved all through the week. I wanted to have it for breakfast last Thursday since I knew I'd be home. I made my coffee, unwrapped the crepe, put it down and got JOE's oatmeal for her. I turned around and my little girl was running away with MY crepe. She was eating it and laughing at the same time! I tried to get a bite but she would have NONE of it. She ate the entire thing then offered me her messy hand. I thought she wanted me to have the rest but nope...she wanted me to clean her hands! Needless to say, lesson learned! I am going to start hiding when I want to enjoy a treat by myself. J & JOE, BEWARE!!!
