I think I am going to try going solo for a little bit. I know it is not the smartest idea, but I am finding it difficult to log onto here everyday and spend the time tracking my food. In reality, I never wanted to keep that close of an eye on what I was eating, counting every little calorie. I will try to see how I do. If I start gaining all the weight back, then you will see me soon :)

So I kind of fell off the wagon the past week, weekend. Ok, I did not fall off, I let myself off of the wagon. I ate crappy food, felt crappy, so now it is back on the wagon we go. I really dont know what else to say, for once in my life.

I have lost 15 pounds so far so I treated myself to an extra cupcake yesterday. So, I went over, but, shockingly, the world keeps on turning. I had not planned on walking yesterday, but it was not that cold and the sun was shining so we did a nice long walk to the library. I took out a video game from the library and my husband cooked dinner and put Jr to bed for a nice change. It was an overall great SELFCARE day. Now if only Jr would cooperate with sleeping better.

Well, I went over my points yesterday. I just make such a darn good lasagna that it was hard to resist. I am doing much better today, though I have to tell you, the healthy lunch I made was disappointing. Good thing it was low in calories so I can have something else. I really feel like Greek food so I might make some of that tonight, minus the yummy fried Kalahari (my fave). Not much exercise last week, I might try to do aerobics after Jr goes down for his afternoon nap.. I have this old aerobics tape led by Mary Hart from the late 80s. They wear bright spandex and she is a really poor instructor, but it is a simple routine and makes me laugh so I tend to follow it.

So getting out of the house and away from my normal routine (mommy) even for a few hours yesterday was a nice change. Actually I thought it was kind of funny, my friend asked me if my husband took over with Jr much so that I could get out. I said not too much and that I am a bit of a homebody. I actually like being at home. Don't get me wrong, I love going to new places and trying new things, but at the end of the day, I want to go home. My husband has mentioned how much fun it would be to backpack around Europe for a year (before we had kids) but I don't think I could last that long. I would miss my family, my dog, my house. I could go for a month, two tops. See the dynamic in our friends' house is backward from ours. The wife is not the homemaker type. She doesn't cook, doesn't really clean, and does probably less than half the child care. Don't get me wrong, she is a great mom but she loves to work. Her husband, who also works full time, does the rest of the domestic chores (well before they got a nanny). I think that it is great they found a system that works for them. On the other hand I have found that I enjoy being at home with my son and taking care of the house and the cooking and mothering. I tell my husband to jump in if he ever wants to take over something because I normally just take over things and he does give me a break when it looks like I am getting frustrated. But this works for us. I never thought I would fit the traditional role of a woman, but I truely enjoy it. This is the first "job" I have found that I enjoy.
