12 week "pound" goal

(That is all I need to know this time. I have all the rest. You need to keep up with your weight, inches and all that because we will be seeing how those change)

We have only one week left of our 42 day challenge and I have to say that I've done pretty good. I've lost 5 pounds so far and I have toned up a little bit because my clothes are fitting really well. For the 2nd challenge, my goal is to lose 10 more pounds...more would be ideal though! :) I haven't been able to work out as much as I wanted to especially this week. I caught food poisoning or the stomach bug one.

Thursday night I woke up at midnight and was up til 4am in sheer misery. Oh it was terrible. I don't wish that on anyone. I won't give you TMI but I certainly would rather go through labor a million times than go through that mess. I think that it could have been the stomach bug though because Saturday it seemed like maybe Graham had gotten it too because he was pooing it up. But he never threw up. I, in a way, envied him (not really. I felt so sorry for the poor thing) because I would much rather just be pooing than pooing AND throwing up. I hate throwing up more than anything. ugh. I honestly don't see how people can make themselves throw up cause it just makes me cry like a little baby. Back to Graham pooing. Oh, it was so baddddddd. He had pooped all over himself, his highchair, me. I stood in the kitchen for a good minute, holding him up in the air with poop dripping off of him and not knowing what in the world to do with him. I didn't know where to put him and undress him without getting poop everywhere. So I threw gently sat him in the tub, fully clothed and diapered and just washed away. Poop had dripped all the way from the kitchen to the bathroom. I was so disgusted. and the smell. oh dear Lord. it was the worst I have ever smelled. I felt like I was never going to get the house disinfected. I kept shaking my whole body thinking that it would make all of the germs go away. shaking now just thinking about it. All of this before 730am. It made for a longggg Saturday because that happened two more times before the end of the day. I ended up giving both Graham and myself 3 baths in all.

But we are all fine and dandy now, thank Goodness. and where was Chad during all of this fun?? working. what a lucky fellow. but you better believe he has had to change every single poopie diaper since. I may just make him change all of the poopie diapers for the next month after all of the trauma that I experienced. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

good night and happy pooping.

Oh Stephanie!!! That about holding graham up and not knowing what to do...oh, I've been there. Sort of. I mean, graham was much more sick...but I know the feeling of wondering where to attempt to change the diaper and clothes.

I'm so sorry. And smelling anything funky is wayyy worse in the early morning. Like our senses are more alert or something!

Glad yall are feeling better!

Oh that's terrible! I had that last year and had to take my WHOLE family to the doctor for phenergan. I only got thrown up on once by Chrissy and then had it myself, but cannot begin to imagine a baby and being sick. And then cleaning it up. You're WAY tougher than I am!
And thanks for the challenge info. I'm definitely going to give it a try. (And please tell me sweets don't include Special K - I'm addicted!)
