The good the bad and the ugly...

Sunday, February 10, 2013

The Good:

I am waiting delivery of my jogging stroller, I managed to get it for £100 ($140 aprox) I just hope it's good enough quality. I think Amelia will love it because she loves it when I zoom the pram around, I usually gets lots of giggles too.

Amelia had her first baby swimming lesson last week and she loved it, she was smiling the whole time (she's not a giggly baby, giggles usually take a lot of work!) she kept clapping when the instructor clapped to say well done and did everything without fuss apart from lying on her back on a float, she's too nosey for that! She struggled to nap that day because she was so wound up! We're looking forward to next Tuesday, but tomorrow is a music class called Heigh Ho, it's for assisted walkers so I'm hoping it will help her burn off some energy. She's into climbing at the moment so there's lots of soft play session and going to the park. I think she had just turned 9 months old when she first climbed up onto the coffee table by pushing her toy box next to it! I've got a little monkey on my hands!

The bad:

Too much going on in my life or rather a lack of organization has meant my running has been hit and miss lately, I love my Garmin and I want to play with it more, and I can't wait to test out my jogging stroller. The big mission is to get everything organized around the house and get rid of the feeling that clutter brings.

The Ugly:

The last few months I haven't been able to shake off this flat feeling, I can't be bothered with anything, the smallest task seem to require the greatest mental energy (hence my lack of blogging) The cycle is perpetuating and I've struggled to get that kick to pick myself out of it. I'm almost enjoying being like this at times which is just lazy and horrible. Diet and exercise has suffered because of it and I've had a lot more headaches.

And back to the good:

Today is the first time I've felt different, I'm feeling full of energy and wanting to get things done. I feel overwhelmed by what's got to be done, working on sorting the house, my diet, my exercise schedule and getting all these new activities with Amelia into my days is going to be hard. But right now I'm up for it and ready to go, wish me luck emoticon

    I have 3 kids(11 months, 5 & almost 7), I'm trying to lose the last 11 lbs of baby weight and we're trying to get our business off the ground(www.pepperskye.com). So I'm spending my chill out time sewing. If it wasn't for some of the challenges on the different teams I belong to I think I would give up completely on trying to lose weight & eat better. Most days I feel like somethings gotta give and it's gonna be me. The baby has been waking up a lot at night which is adding to it as well. I say pick your battles. Make a list of things that absolutely need to get done and a list of things you'd like to get done. Work on the first list and when you have a free moment(I know what free moment) pick something from the 2nd list. Maybe you need to tidy up and end table or wipe the dust off the top of the fridge, something that takes 10-15 minutes. I think some days if I just had 15 minutes I could tidy this area or clean that thing. Sigh. Well, I need to get a bottle for the LO before she howls.

    Hopefully this change is mood is helping you to come out of the funk. I seem to remember you mentioning that it might be a seasonable thing? If so, I hope the sun is starting to come out for you! *hugs*
