Ready to get back into routine... sort of

Monday, November 19, 2012

My son has finally mostly recovered from his surgery last week. He's still having a hard time eating (it was oral surgery, his stomach is fine) but he has finally almost gotten his attitude back! emoticon I actually kicked him out of the house today to go for a walk because it was a beautiful day and he was just moping around on the futon (we don't have a couch) and getting grumpier and grumpier. No more excuses to just lie there anymore! emoticon

I've been able to get some walks in and a little aerobics, just enough to keep my pedometer happy but not enough to keep ME happy! emoticon My shin splints hurt like heck tonight but I haven't done any core work or upper body since Wednesday! emoticon And I so miss feeling those muscles after they've been worked! emoticon

So I don't know how much I'll be able to do before school starts up again on Monday emoticon but starting tomorrow I should be able to get a whole lot closer to doing what I want to do now that my boy is better and no longer requires nursing emoticon

Although... I DID pick entirely the wrong week to try a c25k program. emoticon Surgery followed by a week long school holiday? That's a whole lot of full time mommy-ing! I'll start week 1 again when the kiddos go back to school. That should give me enough practices that I'll be able to do it regularly with at least 1 kid in tow during the December break. emoticon

    Glad your son is improving. Do what you can when you can. Consistency beats good single performances here and there.

    Sounds like you've done a great job of staying active, even though it wasn't an ideal week! It's great that your son is feeling better!

    Whatever you can fit in is worthwhile. I hope the rest of the week goes better for you and that you can get back on track next week!
