Quiet Monday

Monday, March 07, 2011

I've never been so happy to see a boring, quiet Monday. I don't know how long it's been since I tracked anything or slept for 8 hours! I have close to 400 e-mails to sort through and a ton of stuff to do at home. My nephews were back again for a couple of days and the 15 mo girl that I watch during the day screamed and cried EVERY time the 10 month old would look at her! My husband had to work late during most of that time. My mom, brother and sister in law came down for a couple of days. We had a great time. Now I'm looking forward to a few 'normal' days before spring break. I think I managed at least 30 minutes of exercise every day! We'll see if I can get back up to an hour or more this week! :)


The boys are back in town

Monday, February 21, 2011

Hehehe! The boys being my little nephews. I suppose I could have said, "THEY"RE BAAACCKK!" But that seemed to have more of a negative connotation. emoticon
They'll be with us for the next couple of days, so we're going to be very busy. Hopefully, I'll find time to log in again tomorrow. Until then, I'll try to play more and snack less! :)


Boys Back tomorrow

Monday, February 21, 2011

It's strange that 'habits' are so hard to keep up when we have company, especially kids. I keep thinking that habits are habits and should be followed all the time, but I must not have established them all that well yet. My nephews are coming back again tomorrow for a few days, so I'll see if I can do better at the exercise and tracking this time. But if not, I know I won't do to badly and will be able to get back on schedule by Thursday. :)


Positive Attitudes

Thursday, February 17, 2011

I love positive attitudes! I just read the SP Healthy Reflections e-mail. Most of my life I was so overly positive that I think some people couldn't stand to be around me.
Then, for a short while, that took a dive. I'm not quite sure why. I think it might have had to do with pregnancy hormones and the lack of sleep that accompanies little ones. I would remember how much happier I was when I saw everything as positive, so I started to work on getting back to that point. It was a major struggle, that's still ongoing, but very much worth it. I still find myself slipping up occasionally and getting bitter about something, but I eventually remind myself to look for the positive. Most of the time it has to do with things I can't control. As soon as I realize that, then it's easy to fix, I just let it go. If I don't have the power to change it, there's no use worrying about it. Many times there is something I can change about a situation to make it better and that's my own attitude. It's amazing how people respond to friendliness and smiles!
Finally, no matter how tired I am or how many things may have gone wrong, I always try to find the good things in a day to think about and I try not to ever (I can't say never because I may have slipped up once or twice) post anything negative online. For example, if I'm exhausted, I try to think about the fact that it will be interesting to see how much I CAN get done today, instead of complaining about being sooo tired. I'm usually pretty amazed at everything I manage to get done in a state of exhaustion. My mind kind of shuts off but my body keeps going and that next day I'm always a little shocked to see everything that I accomplished. Here's to another great day! emoticon


We Survived the Day

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Considering all the kids here today, we somehow survived and had a great day! When I finally sat down to fill in the nutrition tracker, I was shocked that I had not exceeded the recommended calories or gone over in any other area! I was sure that I must have missed a little snack here or bite there, but I cannot think of any or any time that I even had to grab a quick snack. I ended up eating some cereal right before bed because it had seemed almost impossible to eat dinner while feeding 6 little kids! I was afraid that was going to ruin my nutrition for the day but apparently I needed to eat a little more! I'm looking forward to tomorrow. We'll only have 5 kids and my mom will be down in the afternoon to help, also. :)
