Day two of the restarted restart has come and nearly gone and I am feeling great! I made it to the gym two days in a row and been concious of everything I've been eating. Made a beautiful breakfast two days in a row. It seems that the scrambled eggs, toast and cottage cheese sticks with me much better than the egg sandwich. I have to log that to see if it is the right calories. Maybe if I pair it with cottage cheese it would be more filling. Tomorrow is a day on the road. Will have to find a good lunch option, maybe I'll find a subway for lunch. We'll see if I will have time for anything more creative than that. Will have to ignore the donuts that I know will be at the meeting and instead just put fruit on my plate that I also know they will have. I will have my filled up water bottle ready for me to drink another 3 liters.

Last week the kids started back at school and I started back at the gym. Last week went great. This week has yet to get started. Monday was a holiday and I spent the day canning salsa and didn't have energy left to go to the gym. Then this morning I didn't get an early enough start to go to the gym and I had to work late, however I started with a fabulous breakfast. I ate pretty well today. Had a small bowl of ice cream, so I would give myself an F for exercise and a B- for calories. I am getting tired so I am going to get everyone's lunches ready for tomorrow and head off to bed so I can get that early start and get back on track with my strength training. I have another fat pinch in less than a week so I better get back on track. Since I took two days off already this week I will have to work out the rest of the week, but that will be ok. I will make this a priority. I have a goal. I will accomplish that goal.

Ok. So I am normally a decisive person. I have to be. My husband is so darn laid back he always makes me pick, what's for dinner, what are we going to watch, what do you want to do. He just rolls with the punches and I have to decide. But this decision I CAN'T MAKE. I am so flipitty floppitty it is not even remotely funny anymore. So what is the big life altering decision I am trying to make? Should we try for a 3rd child? The last time I told my husband I wasn't sure anymore, he said, well it's up to you. WHY? Just because I carry the child doesn't mean its all up to me. Its still OUR family. Maybe I just need a shrink.
I talked to my mom over the weekend and she said everything I knew she would say. There was nothing she said that I didn't expect, but that is why I did not tell her right away. I didn't want her to change my mind, I knew she would be worried that it wasn't the right decision and you have two beautiful gifts right now, why don't you just enjoy them and not want more, SELFISH. She didn't say it, but a voice in my head has been saying it since we ultimately decided to try.
I didn't renew my birth control. That's a pretty big step toward trying. Now I am going off Depo-provera, which they say takes some serious time to get your body back to normal and get pregnant. So we were going to give it a year. So what do we do now? We have to decide before a decision is made for us. But maybe that is what I am waiting for. Here's the romantic story for the baby "Well we decided not to have anymore, but were a little late, ha ha"
I'm not going to go back over all the pros and cons, because anybody who is a parent knows what they are. And once you see the positive pregnancy test, hear the heartbeat, see the ultrasound and hold the child for the first time, all the cons disappear, because you know no matter what life throws at you, you are a survivor and you will do whatever it takes for this child to have a great life. And for all of your children to have wonderful lives. And your family to be a unit. So how do you decide? How do you tell that little soul that has been knocking at your heart that you are not meant to be its mommy?

So I am in week 2 of my biggest loser challenges and I am so happy it is going well. I have been doing weight watchers at work since October trying to get extra motivated, and FINALLY I can report a 2.6 lb loss in 1 week. YEAH! I totally attribute that to the gym challenge, where I have 4 people on my team and if I mess up I let them down. There is no dropping out of that challenge, if I drop out they still average the score against 4 people, so I could totally screw my team. Great motivator to keep on track. So I have been committed to getting the exercise in and been focused on what I have been eating, and not sneaking intsy snacks (as much) and it actually paid off. On monday I get a fat pinch at the gym, and I am actually excited
I went to the grocery store on my lunch hour and got at TON of VEGGIES, YUM! I just have to decide which yummo ones to roast up tonight, I am thinking butternut squash, sweet potato, broccoli and cauliflower. hmmm....

This weekend was BUSY! Aren't they all. Saturday my daughter had friends over, which was a nice distraction for the kids while mommy and daddy canned salsa all day long. Was my back sore from hunching all day, but the fruits of our labor paid off and we will have yummy salsa to keep us warm this winter. Sunday we ran to my in-laws and I went to the gym to get my strength routine in. I was very pleased with that. I decided it was time to add in my third set, and wow, how quickly that muscle comes back! I was able to complete all the designated reps on the third set for all but one of my exercises. The one I didn't do all the way was the dead lift at 125 lbs, I did 6 instead of 10, which still made me feel good since it was over half. I knocked out the killer insane v-ups with my feet in trx straps and my hands on an upside down bosu ball, I managed to get all three sets of 16, but when I went to my chart I was only suppose to do 12, awesome! Today will be more cardio after a work meeting. I think I am going to do the treadmill tonight. I am yearning for a good walk.
