Last week was a frustrating and busy week. We had company over, which was great, but also meant not eating quite as well and having a few drinks. Needless to say I did not track much (although our dinners at home were still quite good), and have gained back the slight loss that I had had after I recommitted. BUT I am not going to let this stop me. I will conquer this and I WILL win! I found a Kathy Smith strength training DVD (Lift Weights for Weight Loss 2) for $5 so I picked it up. I've done a couple sessions now and it's kicking my butt, which is what I need With the snow on the road I have had to take my workouts inside so I am doing my Leslie Sansone DVD right now and then the strength training one. I have some other cardio DVDs that I can do as well in order to change things up. It's interesting doing them with a 2 year old running around now but so far he has been really good about letting me get it done. Let's hope it keeps up this way! When I am stretching he loves to lay down on the floor next to me and try to do it as well, pretty cute.
On the plus side his sleeping is getting much better! Most nights he is only getting up once and at the most twice, which is so much nicer than every 2 hours! His foster mom and brother are coming for a visit this Friday. I am kind of nervous about it as we are in a good pattern right now and I have a feeling that this visit is going to set us back but I know that I cannot avoid it and its important for all of them to see that he is happy and doing well and its important for him to see that they have not disappeared from the face of the earth!
