I turned in the side project today, my parents' visit has ended, and lots of my other stressors from last week are now out of the way. Naturally I did not continue with the Boot Camp every-day workout challenge during all this. I have eaten like crap, too. I mean, I have "made unwise choices."
I'm trying to tell myself I am not a bad person, or a failure, for these things. Life is what it is. But I guess I have to climb myself back onto The Weight Loss Wagon today, though, if I really want it to happen.
Starting with my water -- when you get out of the habit, it's hard to get back into it! -- and this lovely green salad with black beans I'm having for my lunch.
Then I'll pick up where I left off on the Boot Camp thing, and do a 10-minute video at some point today.

Kate (my daughter) did get sick. Strep throat. So I'll be home with her tomorrow. "Working" from home, har har. Like I'll get anything done. Oh well, I'm trying to think positively about it and hopeful that I'll at least get in a workout while I'm there.
Otherwise, I'm feeling overwhlemed with activities. Baseball tournament for my 6yo, my parents are coming up for a visit, Mother's Day, this BootCamp Challenge which I want desperately to complete, and a poorly-thought-out side job, for which I could earn a lot of cash, but for which I seriously don't have the time. I am going to be working late into the next few evenings, I'm afraid. It was stupid of me to agree to it.
Better get off SP and get back to my day-job. GAH GAH GAH GAH GAH.

Yesterday I went down to the basement with my 3-year-old, and she watched while I did the first Spring into Shape challenge video. She even did a few "jumping jacks," which can barely be classified as such but were so cute I could hardly stand it.
I have caught a cold and I felt pretty rundown most of the weekend, but I was glad I did those 10 minutes yesterday. She and I also took a 20-minute stroll outside, which isn't really GOOD cardio, but seeing how I'm sick, I think it's good enough. I'm on DayQuil and NyQuil and have my fingers crossed that SHE won't get sick -- she seemed feverish to me this morning.
All in a day's work.

I joined a SP challenge. I think I really need it, because I keep telling myself 'You have to really push yourself/change things to start seeing a noticeable difference," and yet I keep doing the same thing.
The challenge requires daily exercise. Yikes. I've tried that before and failed. But I'm hopeful I can do it with the good guidance provided, and if I fall, just GET BACK UP.
Here's to the Month of May! (eek!)

Over the weekend I was asked "Are you pregnant?"
I am decidedly not pregnant.
I knew I shouldn't have bought that empire-waist dress, but I really think it looks pretty decent. AND I wore my Spanx. Sigh. The woman backpedaled, naturally -- STILL people don't know that you should NEVER ask this of a woman?? I can't believe that -- she said it was because of something I had said, not my figure... but, well. You can't take back words. (And don't get me wrong, this is a lovely person from my church. But still.)
It pisses me off, frankly, that I'm working on it and it doesn't show. The whole episode made me want to throw in the towel. And I did after it happened Saturday night, I ate whatever the hell I wanted Sunday.
I'm trying not to be defeated by this but it's a stinging comment.
