I've lost count on how many times I am starting over. I've lost count on how many days are in my countdown.

But besides my baby bears first birthday party on July 26th. We are having a family vacation right after. We are going to the British Virgin Islands. That's where the BF is from, so I have to get together. OH & Amar'e christening is happening before this.

I feel a little overwhelmed at times. But I'm making it due but I feel like I can be doing so much better to balance my time.

I had my first gym workout after the baby. Too me long enough. I felt weird. Like out of place. I still worked out for 35 minutes. I didn't realize I lost a lot of confidence since having Amar'e.

My job moved like 2 weeks ago & the hour+ commute each way sucks!!!! We have so many rules. That's why I haven't sparked much. I'm actually on my iPhone on my lunch break. And I missed my baby's first steps. He walked for the first time last week. 2 steps! I was at work.....that sucks!

I got 15 minutes left of my lunch break. Let me get some fresh air.

    I'm sorry that you missed your baby's first steps. It is difficult to be a working mom and miss seeing the firsts. It's also difficult managing so many things. Hang in there and don't be so hard on yourself. Find what works for you now. Things are different so you'll need to make some changes.
You have so many things coming up-fun stuff! Enjoy!!

    You have a lot going on! A mother's work is never done thats a fact I know now that I'm a mother but you know what? We can do it all believe it or not! We just have to prioritize and let go of some of the small to do things like mopping, laundry, dishes lol. I'm so sorry you missed your baby's first steps! I work full time so I know how much it sucks to not be around to experience these type of things first hand. I'm just now starting to feel more comfortable with myself after having my son ... he's 16 months but I know it's because I'm working out when possible and eating better! Hang in there, don't give up and enjoy your vacation and baby's christening!!

    What a beautiful name! Is it pronounced : A-more-ray? Or like French for love, Amore`? Either way, I love it..
That getting back to normal after baby time is a killer.

Time flies and then back to work and tired, and baby, and work and tired... Too bad nobody recorded his first steps for you,,even on their phone..

You will see his steps for the rest of his life Mom.. The first ones you see ARE the first ones!!!
Enjoy those family celebrations,, they go by WAY too fast ..

So since the baby got sick, my food has been crazy. Today I start over. Yup, I got my oatmeal smoothie I made. I have lunch, packed the night before. Roasted potatoes, peas, and baked chicken. I got some fruit. I am feeling good.

Next week I start working in my new office an hour away. So not planning to prep is planning to fail.

Well it's official, we booked our event space. July 26th is set in stone. So now 102 days is so real.

UPDATE! The baby is feeling better. Amar'e was acting like himself yesterday. His fever has been gone since Sunday. My mom is still watching him at my house to give him a few days at home. It's been rough and it got worse before it got better. Between him not eating, watery stools, a rash all over his body, and another trip to the doctor he is ok. But it seems he was loving all of the extra attention, not like he doesn't get any, but lord he was clingy this morning. I was making breakfast for myself to take to work and this boy was "crying" his crocodile tears aka no tears and pulling on my leg, yelling. The minute you picked him up he was fine. As much as I love my baby, I had to leave him there b/c else I would of never made it out the house on time for work. He'll be fine. His grandparents on both sides spoil the mess out of him. I keep telling them to cut it out, leave him on the floor. But they never listen.

I have 108 days to get it together.

Tomorrow we are checking out the place we want to have Amar'e birthday party. I have to give people jobs b/c it will be overwhelming. But it's going to be a Curious George jamboree! I am excited!!!!!!

No I don't have lunch today. I have been slipping so much. I did make breakfast, turkey bacon, potatoes w/onions & peppers, & egg whites. SOOOOOO GOOD!

Talk to you guys later!

Well my son has come down with the flu. To not get into great detail. It started with an occasional cough, then a very high fever, 104, a trip to the doctors, then the hospital to drop off and rush his labs, and a confirmation of the flu. He's been down and out since Thursday. The good news, is he is feeling somewhat better. 100%....nope, but better. He's back to eating a little here and there. He's back to playing with his toys. My mom is watching him now for a few while I get things done at home aka, watch TV, surf the web, and clean/grocery shop/laundry when I sign off of SP. I felt so bad & it's hard to give him the medicine. Especially the one for the flu, it bothers his tummy. But it's only for 5 days and he is on his 3rd day today.

With this news, everyone's eating has been crap. Eating 1-2x a day max. Ordering out. The sad thing is we really have no groceries. So that's the top of the list for today.

I am really feeling unmotivated. Sad but true. I don't feel like working out at all. I got ready for my workout today and did 10 minutes when I realized I didn't eat. I was so busy taking care of the baby, getting him packed up, and dropping him off. So I got something to eat real quick. I feel so out of whack. I hope getting our groceries will being me back to reality. I have tons of prep to do today too. Especially I have to be at work at 6am tomorrow. I have an afternoon doctors appointment to follow up on my allergic reactions I have been having to food. I ate a piece of tilapia fish last week and I had another reaction. It's sad to thing I may have a possible fish allergy. I only broke out in itchy hives though, so not as bad as before.

To be honest, I am spark hoping to motivate myself...so off to surf!

    It sounds to me like you need a bit of healing time along with the baby! Take care of YOURSELF and the motivation will follow - a nice bubble bath? a manicure? It is easy to let the world pile itself on and get in our way...sometimes doing something unexpected helps to turn things around!

    Bless your heart! I hate to hear that lil man wasn't/isn't feeling good. I feel you about the not being motivated stuff though. I have been there and sometimes still go back there. I started not to workout today. I didn't workout yesterday. But I made myself and I feel better about my choice. Maybe I burned off all that dang on brown rice I had with my dinner. Hopefully this week will be better for you.

  Nothing worse then a sick baby. You feel so helpless. Hope your baby gets well soon.
