Phew. I'm really glad to be writing this post!
First, here is my food list from the last day of the CFC:
Breakfast; 2 eggs and a big bowl of strawberries
Lunch: Lentil Soup and a bowl of melon and grapes (eaten at the bagel shop!)
Snack: almonds, cashews and crans, carrot juice, carrot sticks, apple, hard-boiled egg.
Before my swim: Bowl of mashed sweet potatoes, with a little maple syrup and salt and pepper. Not really that good, but gave me energy for a good, solid swim workout. I swam 1,750 yards in about 35 minutes.
After my swim: Big salad made by Sam.
After a busy morning of work for me and Art Camp for Skyler (so cool! Can't wait to show you what she's creating!), the family drove out to Swan Lake State Park for the afternoon for some canoeing and swimming.
We love Swan Lake. We'll even forgive the grammatical inadequacies. But oooooh. That really gets me!
Just to keep things interesting during my weekend without Sam, Reed ingested the missing piece of this spoon. I immediately called my friend Sandi, our own personal critical care nurse, and she told me what to watch for (perforated bowels? Yikes.)
I remembered that when Skyler was a baby, I fed her a whole jar of baby food and only when I got to the bottom of the jar did I realize that it was shattered and there were glass shards inside it. At the time, my pediatrician assured me that kids can pass all sorts of crazy objects: glass, nails, screws, without incident. But still!
We'll call this Reed's own PDOTANFC
(Potentially Dangerous Objects that are NOT FOOD Challenge)
We cannot confirm whether this sharp piece of plastic has exited our Reedo yet, but he is as goofy as ever, so I think he's fine.
Did you do the CFC this time around? Congratulations! If you have any final thoughts on how you felt, if you think about food differently, and/ or if you have any future changes in mind, please send me an email or leave me a comment and I'll combine your thoughts with mine in a final CFC post in the next couple days.
Tomorrow morning: Bagel for breakfast! And oh man, you know what else sounds good? Nutella.
