Today was a pretty good day. I went out with a friend and we took a trip to the store. I managed to buy tons of good stuff for us to eat and a yoga mat cover that was on sale. After wards we had lunch and took a trip with the baby hiking. Though it rained and was cold, we trudged along happy as can be and managed to get in about 20 mins at a pretty decent pace.
All this week I've managed to wake up before 6am and get out of bed by 630am. I've done my tapping, had my tea and have eaten my breakfast every morning so far. Even today, on the run, I managed to have an egg and some granola.
I'm thinking that even if the pounds don't change, at least I feel better about myself.

No, not tap dancing but the tapping you do to relieve stress and remove bad vibes. I started tapping about a month ago and then read about it in my massage book and realized that I've been tapping for years! I might not have been hitting the spots that I'm learning now but I've been doing it for de-stressing and it really does work.
I think I'm going to tap every morning when I wake up. Tap and have a cup of tea.
for those who want to know more about tapping, here is a link that talks about it, has a free e-book to read and free videos with step by step instruction.

Well, we haven't been swimming for a while. The baby was a lot tamer. He is getting into the groove and was undressed before any of us! It's the getting ready part that is still a joke. He likes to hide in the lockers and the girls still don't help out as much.
As for actual swimming; the girls are on their own pretty much now. They do so well and can swim from one side to the next. I won't let them go into the big pool without me still (which they hate) but still, they have fun.
The baby can crawl around the edges of the pool which gives me much more freedom. He also likes those tubes and that allows me to do more too.
I actually spent about 5 mins of "speed cycling" in the water. I then went on to arm circles, lunges, speed walking, squats, leg lifts and other such things. By the time I got home, I felt good. Tons better than when I was not going.
I think I just need to get to the gym more often and I'm going to have to just set aside the time for us all.

Really, it's a pain in the butt. I've been avoiding the gym like it's a boogie on the end of a 4 year olds finger. The kids want to swim. I can't swim cus I have the baby. We can only swim at night.
"MOM I WANNA SWIM, I WANNA SWIM, I WANNA SWIM"
I drag myself to the gym. I chase the baby around the locker room. I get undressed and chase him some more. I get my swim suit on, get him undressed and chase him naked some more. I get in the showers, the girls have thrown our stuff on the shower floor. I pick up my wet clothes and towels. I chase the baby while carring everything. I walk around in the pool, attempt to work out, get splashed, listen to the girls tell me that they can swim and should be allowed to swim in the big pool alone, watch the girls attempt to swim, try to save them with a toddler in my arm, argue about the matter more, get out of the pool, repeat for the next 2-3 mins "Get out of the pool now!" while the life guards wait for us to exit so they can close up, gather the stuff and hold the baby on my own, shower as the baby runs in circles, tell the girls to hurry up, repeat the undressing and dressing process (chasing baby naked included), watch baby slip and fall, watch baby run through gym as i chase him, drag baby as he goes limp in my arms, listen to marie cry cus the pool water messes with her eyes, listen to vatricia cry cus she's tired, listen to the baby cry cus he wants to run around, exit as the last people in the gym and watch as the rest of the staff waits for us to leave so they can close up, go out with wet heads into the cold, go home, wake the kids in the car, listen to them all cry cus they don't want to be waken, drag them to the house, put them into the bed and listen to them cry some more and finally, finally they all go to bed.
and of course after all that crying and yada, they still want to repeat this whole deal...
I hate swimming...
