Hi! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine started off a little rocky, but got better.
Friday after I got home from work, my oldest son was not looking or feeling good after 2 full days with some sort of stomach bug (plus he had an ear infection but could not keep any anti-biotics down, so it wasn't being treated). I ended up taking him in to the night clinic at his doctor's office, and after losing 5 lbs. in 2 days, we were promptly sent to the ER for re-hydration and meds. Thankfully, he responded well, and we were able to go home at around 11:00 p.m. He slept through the night, was feeling much better by Saturday and completely normal yesterday. Yea! Here is my poor Brett mid-IV treatment:
Pretty much the only goal I had been reaching last week was drinking significantly more water than I had been. Here is a pic of my new 24 oz. MSU Tervis Tumbler filled and ready to take with me on errands this weekend - somehow fun containers make it easier to drink water (don't you think so?):
I got all crafty and my project of the weekend was a blanket for my younger son. I love the cute/funny dino fleece I found at JoAnn's! I was pleased about how it turned out.
And here is just a fun pic of my little guy using his older brother's drawing supplies from Sunday morning. He just plops himself down, opens up the notebook and starts "drawing" like a big boy!
So this week I am not weighing in. I will weigh in and record my weight next Monday, which will be my regular weekly weigh-in day. I did not do well with my food or exercise choices the past 5 days, so that is really my focus this week. So far so good today...and I haven't had a day yet on this recent "re-start" that I could say that, so I'm pretty proud of myself. My eating habits have been pretty awful for quite a few months, and it is hard to get out of the rut of those bad habits, but I'm getting there!
