I haven't been very active the last three days. I hurt my back and lost motivation. I was doing so well too! But it's okay. I learned a valuable lesson. If I can't perform an exercise properly, don't do it! Luckily, I wasn't injured badly. My back just tensed up really bad. It's not 100%, but I feel good about starting back into it today. I am just going to b more cautious. I am also going to restart the 28 Day Bootcamp. Of course, now I know video #7 can eff off until I am stronger!
I should have kept up with my tracking and everything, but oh well. I still made healthy choices. Even yesterday when I ate Burger King. I didn't order healthy at all. I got their Carolina BBQ Whopper, large onion ring and a large coke. That was the first pop I had in 3 weeks. I ended up only drinking roughly 8 oz before giving it to my husband. He thought I was crazy, but it tasted like pure syrup. So gross! I also ate slow, so as soon as the full feeling hit I stopped eating. Shane ended up with about a third of my sandwich and a quarter of my onion rings. He was a happy camper and I didn't feel like I was going to bust. Other than that meal it has all been healthy foods though. The best this past week was the strawberries. OMG! I love most berries. Strawberries happen to be my favorite though! I bought a 2 lb package last week and made myself eat on it slowly. They were perfect! I bought another 2 lbs yesterday.
Of course, my children decided that since I could barely move Thurs and into Fri, that it was the perfect time to become little terrors. OY! I love them, but they have had me ready to pull my hair out. There has been way too much screaming, kicking and telling me no. On the other hand, we had a big week...Sarane started sleeping in her own bed! I am so excited! We didn't cosleep from birth although she did spend some nights in our bed early on. It started when she was about 16 months old. I was pregnant with Elora (they are 22 months apart) and trying to work full time. I am high risk due to a clotting disorder and I just basically don't do well pregnant. I was so tired and hot and already feeling like my body was going to give out. We lived with my parents to help them out at the time. They were also supposed to help us out with Sarane because we worked crazy hours. Instead, all that happened was my mom would yell for me to get up and get her. Shane wasn't much help either. So she slowly just started sleeping in our bed. It was the best I could do at the time. She still slept in her crib some. Around the time Elora was 3 months, we got Sarane a twin bed and transferred Elora to the crib (she had been in the pack in play bassinet). Sarane has been in our bed ever since. I keep trying to get her into her bed, but she wasn't having it. Worse, is the fact that I actually had to lay with her every night for her to go to sleep. About 2 weeks ago, after getting kicked in the head repeatedly one night, I decided Sarane needed to learn to put herself to sleep. She was still in our bed and there was a lot of crying involved. Then, suddenly, Thursday she decided to take a nap in her bed. Then she wanted to sleep in her bed. That first night she was only asleep about an hour when she had a bad dream and ended up in our bed. Friday and Saturday nights she slept through all night in her bed. I am rather excited!
