It’s been a busy (and slightly stressful) few weeks. First, Fat Kitty needed to go to the vet. He was throwing up a lot, which wasn’t all that out of the ordinary but since we switched to special diet cat food that had stopped. He was okay but it was upsetting. I have to give him some pepcid to help his tummy. We’ll see if that makes a difference. It sure is fun trying to give a cat a pill!
It’s hard to believe my baby is 14 years old now. Until recently he’s been like a 14 year old kitten. He’s starting to slow down a bit. And that makes me sad.
In other pet news…Bella injured herself somehow last week. She split one of her nails. 🙁
She had to be sedated in order for them to fix it. That sucked. But she was a good girl and is taking her meds and healing. I think she’s okay now.
So it’s been a bit stressful.
In the land of weight loss, I finally weighed myself. I needed to check in. The last time I weighed myself was mid-May. Since then I’ve lost 3 pounds. That was nice to see. I haven’t really been doing anything differently other than trying to be “better” about the snacking and eating junk food.
I am counting my calories and staying within my range. I only create a deficit in calories a few times a week but at least I am not going over my calories. I changed the setting in MyFitnessPal to 1800 calories as a base last month and then this week I’ve changed it to 1700 as a base. I often eat back the calories I burn in the gym but not always. It depends on the day, my hunger level, the activity I did in the gym, and Logan. Like I’ve said in the past, breastfeeding makes me starving. I generally have a handle on it but when Logan goes through a growth spurt and wants to eat hourly–you bet my hunger increases!
Anyways, so I am making progress. Slowly, but surely. I am going to stay at the 1700 calorie base for awhile and see how that goes. I am weary of going too low while breastfeeding so my goal is to not go below 1600 while I nurse. I kind of came to terms with the fact that I may not lose the baby weight until I stop nursing, so any loss is kind of a nice treat!
So that’s what is going on here! I’ll end this post with baby feet. 🙂
