Ix-Nay on the Ikini-Bay Ody-Bay

Yeah, so I kind gained all the weight back that I lost.  Yeah.  In one week.  I gained 4 pounds in one week.  I wish I could say I didn't know how it happened and it must be a fluke, but it's not.  I ate myself out of house and home.

Seriously though.  My mom and sister came in town last weekend and then took Anna with them when they left - Mom was going to do Anna-duty all week while Tommy and I gallivanted about town.  And gallivant we did.

Our first issue is that we we were out of food and really needed to go to the grocery store.  Instead, I ate out for lunch everyday and we went out for dinner (and a few drinks) every night.  This, by the way, is not how you lose weight. 

By the end of the week, the only thing that remained in our refrigerator was a half-full jar of pickles.  And a teething ring.  The worst part was that WE WERE ALMOST OUT OF WINE!  The horror.

Point of this story is that having a baby makes you fat and not having a baby makes you fat.  So, really, you are destined to be fat regardless.  Might as well order a Snickers.

So, today at lunch (fridge is fully replenished and I was able to pack my daily PB&J), I forced myself down to the gym for an abs class despite being so exhausted I could barely do a single crunch...nevermind V-ups.  Because apparently, not only does being Baby-Free make you fat, it also makes you a party animal and therefore exhausted.  I am more tired now than I normally am...but then again, we also partied a little more than we ever did Pre-Baby.  I don't think I went out 5 nights a week when I was single and 23.  Not sure how I thought this would go down.

Eating is the best!

Yayy, I love Nana!  NOT!

Nana lets me do whatever I want!!  Food fight!!!

I'm cute.

She loves this car with a fire-y passion. 
At that said, we missed Anna terribly.  My mom and sister sent us tons of pictures and kept us updated on her daily adventures.  It was a wonderful time for Tommy and I to relax and play and workout together and sleep in together and get chores done and all in all, just wonderful.  But man, we were glad to have her back!!  We're too old for this stuff!!  And we are so thankful that my parents were willing (and wanted) to take her for the week - she is a lucky monkey!

And now I have 10 pounds to lose in 5 weeks...instead of 10 pounds in 10 weeks.  The odds are not ever in my favor, but I will do my darndest.

I bet with clean eating and tons of water those pounds that came on quickly will fall right off :)

Oh man, I know your pain. I'm on day two of my "diet" and I'm already staring down a Toblerone bar.

Could it be that all your "gallavantin" got you knocked up? ;)
