Journal Entry - Day 22
This week has not gone at all like I planned. Or wanted. Or remotely hoped.
I stuck with my goals from the previous week. Still inside calorie limits, still to bed before midnight. My new goals? No. *sighs* It was just not meant to be this ... Read more
A new project
Since I have tons and tons of photos from when the twins were born up through now, and I also have tons and tons of scrapbooking gear that is as-yet unused, I decided to do something magical and put them together!
I do love scrapbooking, a... Read more
Week 3 Goals
At the start of my third week, I've set new goals. This week, my goals are:
1. Exercise for 30 minutes each day
2. Take the twins for a walk in the stroller 2x a week.
2. Maintain the activities for last weeks goals.
For my sleep c... Read more
Journal Entry - Day 15
Today has at least been better than yesterday. Went to the doctor to make sure my foot wasn't broken, and it turns out I bruised three bones and strained a ligament. It's wrapped, and has to stay that way for a week until the tendon heals, but I... Read more
Journal Entry - Day 14
Well, I think I'm paying for having such a great day yesterday with having a super sucky one today.
I got up at 8am, fed the boys breakfast, had some egg drop soup for my own breakfast...and promptly threw it back up again. I have no idea w... Read more
Journal Entry - Day 13
Today was an excellent day!
I spent a brief stretch of time trying to calm teething babies, but my wifey came to the rescue with baby orajel just in time! Side note, I think trying to hold onto and comfort and squirming, flailing, screamin... Read more
Angry, angry ANGRY at the doctor!
Okay, this is freaking ridiculous.
A week ago, my wife had hir second appointment with the pain specialist. This time instead of seeing the doctor, she saw his nurse practitioner. She, in turn, set my wife up on two new drugs- one to replac... Read more
Journal Entry - Day 11
Today I actually did a bit of home exercise, and my wife joined in. It went well, except that I can barely do squats deeper than an inch without pain exploding in my left knee. It's been that way for years- it's always been a bit difficult to wa... Read more
A mothers insight
As I was feeding my twins their breakfast this morning, I was watching a show on BBC called Food Revolution. It's about Jamie Oliver coming to the states and trying to help the areas of our country with the largest obesity and health issues to o... Read more
Journal Entry - Day 9
Today was my first weigh-in since starting up again. Since I hadn't started restricting my diet or working out a whole lot, I didn't expect a change yet. I did, however, gain 3 pounds. I'll admit, it's disheartening. I know exactly why I gained ... Read more
Journal Entry - Day 6
Today was really productive! I went out to the pool again...I didn't realize until I got into the water and started swimming that I was already too sore to go very fast. xD But, I spent some good time floating around, and swimming leisurely, and... Read more
Journal Entry - Day 5
The twins had their 9 month checkup today. All was well, they are growing right on track. Dakota is 27 5/8" long and just over 20lbs, while Denali is 28" long and 19lbs. Denali's head has rounded out nicely, so we're no longer under the worrisom... Read more
Journal - Day 4
Today was pretty good! I got up around 8:30 in the morning, fed the boys, stayed up and played with them til their nap, and got a couple hours nap in myself, then stayed up the rest of the day.
Fussiness was at a minimum today, which was al... Read more
Journal - Day 3
Today was stressful. One of the boys was absolutely refusing to nap all day, which made him extremely cranky. He spent the better part of 6-9pm screaming off and on no matter what I did. Swing, floor, holding, my lap, toys, orajel, teethers, foo... Read more
Journal Entry - Day 2
This is actually the entry for 7/8/12, but I fell asleep.
I did well today! I got up, took care of the kids, had a shower, got dressed, and went about my day. It can be difficult to do that everyday, given how tempting it is to just stay in... Read more
