This is what we have been up to....
We made it through the first few weeks of school. I still can't believe Issy is now a 3rd grader! (tear) I'm so proud of the beautiful, kind and brave girl.
On Thursday, Issy was nominated the Art of the Week Student - the first one of the year! She told us that to receive that, she had to be well behaved, a good listener, and understand the information. Super PROUD moment for us! She was so hyper when I picked her up from daycare, and couldn't wait to tell us the great news.
This week, I also attended the school PTO meeting. It was a small group. After all of the information we were given, I definitely have a new found respect for the PTO parents/teachers, and everything they accomplish with such little help.
All of the test I had been doing for my stomach came back negative. I'm not lactose intolerant, even though my stomach lining was inflamed when we did the endoscopy, the test came back normal. I am officially a freak of nature, with a stomach ache. I've decided to put the doctors on hold for a while. Not only are we paying a ton of money for all the visits, but I was missing work all the time, and months later, I still have no new information.
I started weight watchers on Friday. My problem with my regular diet is that I have zero portion control. I am allotted a certain amount of food points per day. On day one of tracking my food, I realized that I was eating twice as many points as I was allotted. Yikes! I downloaded a WW App, which helps me calculate any food, or recipe in seconds. So far, I have felt like the reduction of food is shocking my system, by 8 pm I feel hungry again. No, starving is more like it. Ugh.
