So I did most of my cardio today. Don't think I did well nutritionally tonight. I was lazy & just ate my kids several frozen tater tots, chix nuggets & veggies. I made an appt w/an allergist for my oldest, she has a constant clear runny nose. I found out today that she has mono. You would never know it looking at her. She has no fever & is very active. Her only symptoms today is a sore throat & swollen lymph nodes. She's so good about washing her hands & not sharing drinks. I know she isn't kissing, so I don't know how she picked it up, poor thing! My DH is working late tonight so I was happy I had a playdate this afternoon for the kids so I had another adult to talk to for a little today other than the Dr. this am. I feel lonely sometimes being a SAHM, but have a tough time hanging out w/friends b/c there's always so much to do @ home. The kids want to go to the library tomorrow. I love getting them new books & am looking forward to that. Good night :)

Swimming w/my baby Spencer was fun this morning. I got a call from Victoria's teacher today that a child that sits w/her has strep. Thankfully she has her 6 year check up tomorrow so we can get her tested again. (she tested negative last weel but she's had a mild fever this week)Hopefully she won't need any shots. Olivia is happy I let her play My littlest pet shop on Wii, of course Victoria took over as soon as she got home. My husband Oliver probably won't see the kids again tonight b/c he has to work late. Ugghhh, I want to say I can't wait until this weekend for some rest, but I don't think it'll be any different. I had such a positive attitude this am, now I'm tired & cranky & just want to go to bed. I think I'm going to try & take a nap & maybe I'll feel better or maybe I should drink some water & get on the treadmill or maybe start making dinner, I think this is my problem, I want to do so much & get overwhelmed & then not want to do anything anymore. Calgon take me away!!!

It was a long (my oldest Victoria was up before 5am today) but still a great day today. I drank all my 8 glasses, did all my cardio & most of my strength training. Took the kids to their swim classes tonight & went through McD's for dinner b/c it was so late & I was too exhausted to cook. I finally had the kids in bed by 9 b/c my husband worked late tonight too. I'm hoping my back gets all better soon but I've thankfully been able to muscle through the pain this week. Haven't tracked everything I've eaten yet today so not sure how I've done nutritionally yet. Don't want to ruin my day, LOL. Have a good night & try to get your 8 hours of sleep in :) too

Had a great morning. I found out later my oldest had a fever & had to pick her up from school & while I was playing dolls laying on the floor w/my middle child my back pain came back. It is so bizarre! I made a new RR recipe. Very healthy & yummy cheesy meatballs w/a salad. We didn't care for the salad but the meatballs were awesome. I did great w/my cardio but am a day behind w/my strength training this week due to my flu/back this week. Am going to try and muscle my way through it tomorrow emoticon

    Hope your week starts to get better. I am having that kind of week also. I didn't get my cardio done today because of lack of sleep and head cold and my littlest guy is sick. Then today after school my 5 year old told me his tummy hurt.....yeshhh! emoticon There is always tomorrow! It is tough during cold/flu season. We just have to not give up when we get side tracked!!! emoticon

I slept well last night and felt much better this morning until I think I pulled a muscle or something in my back. I don't know how it happened. I was sitting there cutting Victoria's nails before school when all of a sudden I had a sharp pain in lower back. It hurt so bad I fell on my knees (which hurt those too) & wanted to cry! I was able to get up slowly w/support & once I get going I do better. It seems once I sit down it starts all over. OMG!! I hope it'll just go away soon! Maybe I just can't sit anymore, LOL. I wonder if it's b/c I was sick in bed all day yesterday. If I'm not better by tomorrow I think I'll have to call the Dr :( I haven't attempted to lift anything heavy, I'm to scared! Getting old sucks!
