New Stuff to Try
I just want to thank you all for your super-sweet comments on Saturday’s post!!!! =D You guys are great! I really love being here and seeing what God has in store for us in Recife!
So I didn’t gain any weight this past week, but I also didn’t lose any, so that’s progress. I had increased my intake by about 500 calories last week, so this week I’ll add another 400-500. I didn’t want to go ahead and add 1000 calories last week for fear of making myself feel ill, and therefore decrease my determination to eat more. I figured that if I tried to add in too much too soon it might actually have a negative effect on my weight-gain efforts. Over the weekend, we bought some new snacks for me to try out so that I don’t get bored eating the same things every day. One of them was a vitamin shake mix, which I would add to milk, and get a significant amount of calories without feeling like I stuffed myself after drinking it. Here’s a pic:
I tried that one, its banana, apple and papaya flavored, and it was pretty decent. A little sweet for me, but you could taste the individual fruits and it didn’t have a funny aftertaste or grittiness like the protein powder that I tried did. Also, its pretty low in sodium (only 21 mg) and has 15 percent of 7 different vitamins before I add the milk. Not too shabby. =D We also bought a peach-flavored shake to try out!
So today I have a massive amount of school to do, which is precisely why I’m blogging. =P Too tired to think US History or Algebra. Which brings me to another question, I’ve been sleeping early and not waking up at all in the night, but I’m still tired all of the time and want to go to sleep earlier than anyone else in the family, why is that? Just curious….it may have something to do with stress……or something else…I really don’t know. =P
How was your weekend?
Mine was pretty good. We spent most of yesterday at home, relaxing, and then went to church and dinner last night. Saturday, I was alone at home most of the day, but then we once again had some hang-out time in the evening.
Well, I had better get going…..hope you all of a good Monday! =D
