Today was much better than yesterday as far as cravings go. I made a slightly better cup of coffee, but only had enough time this morning to guzzle down half my cup because we were running out the door. Aiden was not late to school and we weren't late to Lincoln's appointment so that is an accomplishment in my book.
My kids on the other hand were a bit of a stressor for me today. Aiden had a hard day at home and at school with listening and following directions so when we got home he did his homework (extra slowly to prolong his tiny bit of freedom) and then spent the rest of the day in his room grounded. In our house when Aiden is "grounded" it means that he is in his room, on his bed, reading books. Not really a terrible punishment because this kid is a bookworm. He did also lose his video game privileges on Sunday (the only day we really allow him to play on the Xbox) and he was sent to bed an hour earlier than normal.
For lunch I really had no idea what I wanted to eat. Nothing really sounded good at all. Ethan always cooks a batch of chicken Sunday for the week so I knew I had a pre-made meal if I could just figure out what I wanted with it. Upon further searching I found that I wanted nachos. The good kind with everything on it. So I made myself a little healthy ghetto nacho bowl - minus the nachos. Chicken breast, guacamole, sour cream, and cheese, with some salt, pepper, and chipotle chili powder. It was way better than I expected it to be! Only after I had shoveled everything in my mouth, did I realize that salad mix would have been amazing as well. So that'll probably end up being tomorrow's lunch as well.
Ethan is out in the field tonight and I didn't really feel like cooking anything major so we had breakfast for dinner again. Eggs with cheese and some bacon.
Something I did discover today. My emotions are going a bit crazy. I cried while watching Tangled this afternoon and teared up looking at pictures of random people's babies. I saw a picture on Facebook of a mom doing skin on skin contact with her triplet girls. They were so cute and teeny! For some crazy reason it made my heart and my uterus ache. Ummmm hello?! I have a 7 month old that takes all the attention at the moment. There can be no more baby fever in this house for a while. Gotta suppress that shit.
Another discovery I have made this afternoon...coconut butter. Holy goodness it is super amazing! Like how have I gone this long and never tasted it before? I want to put it on EVERYTHING. I hope that my new found love for this stuff will help curb any cravings I have during this whole detox shindig.
I also have a headache. Not sure if it's from the detox or if it's from my children. Aiden was trying at every chance he got to weasel his way out of his room and Lincoln is still sick/teething which means he's super fussy. As tired as I am, I don't think I'll be getting to bed early tonight. I never can sleep when Ethan is gone. never have been able to. I complain about his snoring to him all the time, but when he's gone I guess it's too quiet in the room or something. I dunno. Basically I'm saying I love the man and can't live without him. All that mushy lovesick crap.
Speaking of crap...my littlest needs a diaper change. Oh the life of a mom. Fun stuff :-)
