Okay, I've been spending day after day with a sick baby up at the school, trying to get all the end of the year stuff done.It's really been just me and 2 others up at the school. The other two show up whenever.
Well one woman is really pushing my buttons. This year I've gotten the whole "And Kat thinks her life is bad cus she's got 3 kids and her dh is at war and gone for almost 2 years. Well I have 3 kids too and my dh might as well be gone so I don't want to hear it" Yeah... Her dh is home in fact, he watched her youngest today while she went to the zoo field trip with her son...I couldn't go with my girls because my dh is at war and there was no one to watch my youngest so not only have I missed both of their field trips but also my daughters Promotion celebration. Granted I didn't say a word and instead went off to buy the stuff for the party that she didn't get and load it all and carry it all there (cases of water and all) while having my sick baby with me running a fever because if I didn't do it, no one else would and I wanted to be somewhat part of my daughters Promotion. Granted, she came back from the field trip and went straight home and didn't help me at all so that I could be there for the last 30 mins. Great huh what a friend.
She did tell me that I couldn't go to the Y tomorrow because I need to be there to set up for the talent show...I told her not a chance in hell was I missing the Y. So, she tried to convince Paula not to go with me...ha...why so we could do the work from 9 till 6 and have her show up at 3???
But the kicker today... In short she accused me and my girls of stealing balloons...yes, balloons.
We gave balloons in the treat bags and had a bunch left over. This was on tuesday and that day we all decided to take home some of the extras for our kids. I grabbed 5 of them, 3 for my kids and 2 for Peggy's grand kids since I was taking her home. Vatricia's balloon popped so today I gave her another one. No biggie right?
So we head out the door and I have to run back and tell one of the teachers something and come back around the corner to hear this woman talking nasty to my kids. I stop her and ask her to repeat in which she goes into half the bag being missing, she knows my kids took them and she knows that they dropped one while trying to sneak it out. I tell her that my kids were with me the whole time and have been sitting on the bench and if she didn't see them take it then she has no right to accuse them. She went on to say that she saw me throw a hand full, at least 8 of them into the back of my car. I instantly correct her and tell her that they were the ones that she said we could have and it was my 3 and Peggy's 2. She then goes into "well that's what Paula says" and runs out the door.
Paul admits that she did tell her that I put some in my car but that she said nothing else other than "Kat just tossed the balloons in the car, oh well"
I then get a call from the other woman who states that it's not a big deal and she's not mad but she told all the kids...funny cus the other parents say "no she didn't, just yours". If it was a matter of "No more balloons" then why add in "I know your kids were taking them and you were tossing them in the back of your car"?
This totally ruined my day...I was dressed to go to the gym, was tracking my food in my spare time while doing things at the school and was out the door to the gym when this all happened. I ended up pissed, totally distracted. By the time I calmed down the baby was awake...no way I could take him to the nursery and with him up, I couldn't work out with him sleeping in the stroller...so upset.

I took a nap today and didn't get into the gym until around 630...it was a rush to the gym. Due to getting in later, I was able to make sure I drank 5 cups of water before going. I actually cut back on water intake due to non stop swelling, use to take in 17-20 cups a day and now I'm down to 8-10 *sigh* I can feel the difference too.
Any ways so I got sleep, water but I ate right before hand. *sigh*
Well I got in and was doing soooo good! My numbers stayed in range the whole first session! I had a great 8 min session and went from the 130-140 range and was in the 140-150 range! I was workin those numbers! I ended it and kept my 7 min session going to. But, I came back to the next 8 min session and was a bit tired. Right at the start I thought I heard the fire truck and screaming from the pool. I was totally distracted. My head phones were stuck, my music off, I had to add 30 seconds to the time and the whole way through I just couldn't focus like before. I did good though, my number never dropped below 128 except for when I was trying to get my water and loss balance. I did feel the need to quit and had to force myself through it. I hit my time and all I wanted to do was go to level 7 but I said at the beginning that I was going to add on 30 seconds and I was already feeling the guilt. I knew if I didn't do those 30 extra seconds it would haunt me....
So not only did I do them, I pushed them out. Full blast 30 seconds, as hard as I could go my numbers staying at 140 and 138 except for one quick 136. After that, all was good. My numbers stayed high for everything and I reached my goal in strides 6434 total even though it didn't bring me to 4 miles like I thought. I actually ended on 3.95 miles. LOL.
I went easy on the bike since my knees have been hurting and reached 3 miles which is half a mile less than normal. The treadmill was bad though...My joints are really bad and I got to running and was honest to good shuffling due to the pain. I went for a min and said "No more" I finished it at a 3.0 walk which is still higher than my normal walk but I just couldn't run or jog today.
So, all and all things seem to be improving some. I hope it keeps up!

Really, what is going on? I just can't get it together. I can't get up at 6am, I can't get my workouts going. I'm in slow mode!
I know that with AF here things go a little slower. I also know that with the bad weather my joints mess up. I've had the worst time walking due to my knees and have looked at my meds, just eying them but they do cause weight gain so I'm holding off for as long as I can. I just found out that one of the meds I'm taking right now causes stomach pain and sickness. I thought I was really getting sick. I still think I might be coming down with what the baby has.
But my workouts are way out of whack! I've switched it all around, elliptical, bike, treadmill....treadmill, bike, elliptical.....bike, elliptical, treadmilll.....
NOTHING IS REALLY WORKING!!!
My 20 min bike deal use to be at 10.5-12.2 miles and hour and now I'm lucky to see the 10. It's like I'm tired or something.
My elliptical is just as bad! I can't stay in range on my numbers. The only good thing I can say is that this time when I hit my 7 on resistance I didn't drop 20 below like I did the first few days but actually stayed within range for the most part. I mean, I'm in range for most of it but I was just doing this same workout and never, ever, ever dropped out of range and was hitting the next range or staying at the high end of my range. Now I'm lucky to stay in the low end and being out of range is common. I'm trying to not let it get to me.
The treadmill is the only promising thing I got. I started at 4.0 for 30 seconds and just last week (last workout with paula ...thursday I believe) I reached 2 mins or 2 mins and 15 seconds. Well I did 2 mins on Friday and yesterday I brought it up to 3 mins and today I brought it up again to 3:30 mins! So now I can run 4.6 miles an hour for 3 mins and 30 seconds. Honestly, I could have gone longer but I wanted to add the cool down and get to the other stuff before the baby woke up.
Hopefully this is all from AF draining me and next week will be better.

I got into the gym today! Yes, on a sunday which is normally my rest day. I did the elliptical for 30 mins (35 I think but not sure) and then did the pool. There was a lady in there doing water areobics and I just had to join her. I did a bunch of lunges and squats across the pool. Leg kicks and raises.
My food hasn't been that great today. Actually all weekend I've eaten out due to various reasons ...celebrations with a friend and for DD track meet and then today was the family movie night with pizza of course. It's the only day that I went over and it wasn't the pizza that I didn't plan in, it was lunch. I totally misread the serving size and thought the whole thing was one serving and it was two! yikes, sent me over by about 250 cals.
Oh well, if you do the math right, 3500 cals makes a pound. I ate 250 over and burnt off double that just working out. That doesn't include loading and unloading laundry at the mat and other daily activities.
It will be the sodium that kills me...
