For the past 2 days, I have forgotten to do everything I usually do on SparkPeople. I didn't have an excuse Friday, but yesterday we had a garage sale to raise money for my husband's grandparrents' 50th Anniversary party. We raised $246 minus th... Read more
Day 2 of the little man's fever...
As I said in the last blog, my son has a fever. He was throwing up, but that has passed. However, when my boys get fevers the only person they want is me. It just so happens that last night we ran out of infants' tylenol and he had to live with ... Read more
1 year old, stress, sleep, etc
All my levels have been screwed today. Last night (out of no where) my son wakes up in the middle of the night and starts puking and all of a sudden has a fever. On a normal basis (like with our other son) we wouldn't have reacted as we did, but... Read more
I didn't feel very well first thing in the morning yesterday. I read the rest of a book that I have been reading and immeadiatly after I got a massive headache. I got my kids fed and took some asprin, but couldn't shake it. I ate some toast, the... Read more
So far so good...
I haven't done an official weight in but I have lost another 2 lbs. Im surprised to see it. I might have been eating a bit better for the most part but I have been splurging too. For instance, last night I have a McDonald's Hot Fudge Sundae. I h... Read more
Trying harder today
I have been slacking lately. I need to step up my game. Its already 10 in the morning and all I have managed to do is feed my children, eat some breakfast, and sit on my butt on the computer and watch tv. Thats really not good for 3 hours. Today... Read more
Time to get busy....
Today, I have a few things I have to do. I have to go grocery shopping, make some phone calls, look online for presents for my kids (having a split bday party while my parents are in town), and clean the house WITHOUT neglecting my children in t... Read more
Eating and exercising
I just don't know how people do it. I don't understand how people can eat so well and exercise just right. I exercise and I try my best to eat really good, but I don't think its going to work. I don't eat most vegetables and I know I probably sh... Read more
Hot out there....
Today we were supposed to go out to the Craters of the moon and the ice caves, but instead my brother in law bought a little pool and we are waiting for it to fill up. It may be the better choice of the two. Its super hot outside and I see walki... Read more
Friday Night.... and today.
I was in my pajamas, just about ready for bed. Had one kid asleep and one kid headed there watching "The Incredibles" (his new favorite movie). Yesterday was a pretty good day for me. Did a lot of walking and tried my best not to go over my calo... Read more
Good day yesterday...
Yesterday was fun. I asked my husband's Aunt Beth to watch my youngest and my oldest and I walked to the park. We walked the long way too. A whole mile. When we got to the park, there were kids EVERYWHERE!!! We are from a small town of less than... Read more
Plans for the next few days.
Today, nothing big is going on. I want to take a walk with the boys today, maybe just the oldest one if I can get someone to watch the youngest for a while. If that happens we can take our walk to the other park a little further than our normal ... Read more
Just because I see something, doesn't mean I need to eat it. My husband's grandfather, whom we are staying with while my husband is on internship out here in Idaho, goes to the store every once in a while and whenever he goes, he buys a doughnut... Read more
I think I "carpe diem"ed enough today.
Being a mom of 2 and a wife, I have rarely enough time to get the things I need to get done... done. I woke up this morning (as I said in the blog this morning) and ate an okay breakfast. I did the dishes, cleaned up toys, cleaned the bathroom a... Read more
Today, I woke up with my mind set. Instead of eating a huge bowl of cereal this morning, I had 1 cup. I don't feel as full, but I suspect that if I am to fulfill my goal of at least 6 cups of water a day (as of right now I barely have 1) I will ... Read more
