Well, I had a blog break yesterday due to a momma calling in labor while I was typing out the morning blog 😀
Saturday was a PP day on purpose
Sunday was a PP day because I was at the hospital until 9 p.m.
Two whooshes have me elated, yet worried… LOLl
Daily weight loss: 1.3 lbs/0.60 kg
Total weight loss: 78.1 lb/35.51 kg
Daily weight loss: 1.3 lb/0.60 kg
Total weight loss: 79.4 lb/36.11 kg
Breakfast: 2 tea eggs, coffee
Only worked 1/2 a day so had a yummy lunch: I stir fried 2 tea eggs, 1/4 onion, 5 garlic cloves and 3 slices of bacon with some Italian seasoning… life doesn’t get better than that (I trimmed most of the fat from the bacon, and only allow myself bacon 2x a month… it’s my favorite food GROUP).
Dinner: Chicken breast stir fried with onions and garlic stems
Snack: 2 egg omelet with 2 TBS bran and diced onions
Water: 3 liters
Walk to work 1 mile/1.5 kms
Walk home from work 1 mile/1.5 kms
Walk to 35mm for 2 cafe latte’s with skim milk: 1.61 miles/2.6 km
Walk home from cafe the scenic route along canal: 2.6 miles/4.18 km
C25K run: 2.14 miles/3.44 km
**I think I got my exercise in on Saturday 😀
Breakfast: 3 oz of steak and 2 eggs (I ate instead of blogging, once the patient called!)
Lunch: 2 tea eggs
Very late dinner: Chicken leg and 2 tea eggs (patient’s hubby got for me)… Spicy!
Snack at 11 p.m.: 2% Greek yogurt… My food order came from Shanghai and they didn’t have fat free in stock, so sent 2%… in all actuality, the 2% has less carbs than the fat free… I’ll sacrifice!
Water: 1.5 liters
Walk to work: 1 mile/1.5 kms
Supporting a woman in labor for 10 hours (walking her, massaging her, supporting her… it’s work!)
Ran with 2 year old in arms about 50 yards to hail taxi at 9 p.m., with my backpack and his overnight bag on my back!!! I’d say this was more exercise than running a 5K … lol
Lovely baby girl born at 535 p.m., all happy and well and then Soren’s mommy came in with some tummy trouble and I took him home with me for a few hours so she could be treated and I could have fun! We played games on the iPad and read… as stated before, he’s a pretty cool 2 year old to hang with!
Here he is playing Animal Safari, you can see Bert and Barbie the bunny snuggling behind him…
So… that was my 2 days… going in an hour late this morning since I worked all day and then some on my day off and I have a bit of a headache 😦 The weather is getting better, for the most part… it is raining out there this morning, but in the last 7 days we’ve had 4 sunshiny days, and that makes me a wee bit happier!

The wonder of birth! My congrats to the family.
It’s a pretty amazing thing still, even after all these years 🙂
My wife and I haven’t been blessed with a child yet. We do try to mentor some of the older kids in our lives and show them a good example. Thank you for sharing that story.
Mentoring older kids is the best gift you could possibly give to a child! They so need positive influences in their lives and even positive attention goes a long way! Bless you!
Wow – the whooshes: AWESOME!!! You are the Dukan Queen!!
LOL… or something, hehe! I’m terrified of getting on the scale tomorrow… like it was all a cruel, cruel joke!
Well done on the weight loss!!
Thank you 🙂
With all you did on Sat/Sun I ‘m sure you will be happily surprised on the scales Monday.
I sure hope so… but it seems I’ve been taking 2 steps forward and 1 step back every week… we’ll see!
Hi Sandi, well done on the weight loss nearly 80 lbs!!!! You sound like you are such a fab midwife, you go the extra mile for your ladies and families. Your recipes look delicious, I’m going to cook the pork dish for us, rice for the boys broccoli for me! Hope the sun keeps shining for you, it’s beautiful here in the Uk, always makes me feel better, as an Aussie I do miss sunshine x
Thanks, Meg! Lunch was yummy, I hope you enjoy the recipe!
I’m sure you miss that sunshine… as a Florida girl (the Sunshine State) I miss it too! But they promise me the spring is beautiful here in Hangzhou… it’s just around the corner 🙂
Congrats on the whooshes Sandi. AWESOME xoxo
Thanks, Sonia… new post coming up!
