This has been a really long week! I managed to squeeze in a run on Wednesday. DH has been working nights, so he didn't want to go. He started grilling out chicken & turkey burgers and he said he would take DD#3 to youth group, so I was able to run earlier than I planned. I ran the "hilly trail" because I didn't have a lot of time, but I wanted to get in a good workout. I ran the entire loop (1.6 miles) and walked a little, so I got in about 2 miles (did I mention how hilly this trail is?!).
I ate the yummy dinner when I got home and had to pick up DD#3 from youth group and DD#2 from the movies, so it was late when I got back home, so no snacking!
DD#2 had 3 volleyball matches last night. The first team they were playing was late, so that set everyone's matches behind. They beat that team easily, went 3 games the next match (lost 2-1) and lost the last match 2-0. It was after 8:30 when we left and we both still needed to eat.
DD#1 had picked up DD#3 from play auditions (I really hope she gets a part - she'll be really disappointed and is having some 13 year old angst!), so DH made them dinner before he went to work. I ate left over chicken & broccoli and had a cheese stick & some almonds for a snack.
I was so tired last night, I really wanted to snack and have a big ole bowl of something! I'm doing well on watching what I eat and my low carb, so I ignored my cravings by finishing up the laundry on the bed and going to bed!
Tonight DD#3 wants to play tennis again. I'm really going to have to work on spending more time with her. Valid or not, she's feeling neglected and having the aforementioned teenage angst.
Without going in a lot of detail, all 3 of my girls have different personalities and it's sometimes difficult to deal with them all. DD#1 has pretty much "evened out" and is actually pleasant and easy going now. DD#2 has "anger issues" and usually takes them out on DD#3 (nothing bad, she's is just unpleasant sometimes and they are totally different, so they don't get along). DD#3 is trying to find her "identity" now and is also at the age where she looses interest easily and has trouble concentrating. She wants to "do" something like a club, sport, etc., but doesn't want to put in the effort it takes.
So anyway, tonight will be spent with her (hopefully doing some exercise). I also need to get to the grocery store because I've run out of "stuff" and I don't want to resort back to crappy eating.
Saturday will be a day of catching up on housework & laundry. It's supposed to rain, so hopefully I'll get in some rest too!
Sunday we have several things going on at church and DD#2 has an "awards ceremony" for academics at school - not sure why they're doing it on a Sunday afternoon. She doesn't really want to go, but it's a pretty big deal and she'll get an academic letter!
I don't see much football watching in my future this weekend, but hopefully I'll eat right and get some exercise!
Regardless, I'm am so ready for the weekend!
