Yesterday was the classic excuse- kids don't let me get anything done! I had to leave work early because Arabella passed out at my sister in laws house. This is the 5th time this week that she has done this- and has not done it before this. I was pretty sure she was just holding her breathe, but to be sure I wanted to take her to the doctor. Luckily- she is a perfectly healthy little girl... she just has a very low tolerance for any sort of pain and a very bad temper! So if her brother nocks her over or if she gets really mad, she'll hold her breath. Okay... that I think I can deal with. I'll just need to get used to it and hopefully she'll grow out of it. So, after all of that I still really wanted to go out for a walk and I wasn't going to let the weather stop me. I got myself ready then got Arabella bundled then went to get Xavier bundled and he had a total melt down. When I finally convinced him to go (20 minutes later) Arabella was screaming bloody murder... so I had to take her out of the seat and start over again... and by then Xavier had crashed (fully bundled) on the couch. This wouldn't be a problem if my stroller allowed both of them to lay down... but it doesn't! GRRRR! And to boot, my treadmill key is LOST!!!! Xavier must have stashed it someplace... so I did some lame things in place- jumping jacks, jogging in place- used Arabella to do some arm strengthening... I did what I could... I don't really feel like I was able to get a real workout in though. :(
Today has started out good. It's my day off and Xavier's 3rd birthday party is on Saturday- so I'm doing some heavy house cleaning (even moving couches). It will be my little workout until Jeff gets home from work- then I plan on going for a run with my headphones blazing!!! Well, maybe not -run- a walking jog perhaps- cause it's been too long to just start running again and I don't want to injure myself. I can't believe my little boy is going to be 3 years old already! It's amazing how much time has gone by!
Weighed in this morning at 235.2... Up from yesterday, but not by much- motivation to keep moving and keep tracking my calories... which I did yesterday! Only over by 63- not bad! I also managed to chug 10 cups of water- which I've been slacking on lately... which isn't good cause I'm still feeding Arabella.
Well, day 2 is going to finish great! Hope you all have a sparked day as well!!!
