The "Burrito Roll"...

Saturday, August 22, 2009

I found out today that my son likes to call the extra stomach rolls "Burrito rolls" - and let's face it, they are the size of a grande burrito! It adds a bit of humor to my weight loss journey. He's looking forward to the day when the roll is gone (or at least noticeably smaller - maybe just a standard "bean burrito" roll).

Well, I won't be getting my usual weekend walking in today, it looks like. My little guy threw up just before his dad arrived to pick him up and it was decided that he would do better to stay home with me this weekend while he gets over his illness. His fever broke last night, so this morning's sickness came as a bit of surprise - he looked a lot better when he woke up, but I guess his stomach isn't quite there yet. I'm hoping he'll be able to eat a little something later, or at least drink something. He's afraid he'll throw up again, so we just have to take it easy. He's now sleeping on the couch, which is good - this is taking a lot of energy out of him, so letting him rest is the best I can do. I'm hoping he'll agree to a stroller walk later, but he's afraid it will make him throw up, too.

So, I'll have to see what I can get accomplished today. I was going to rearrange my bedroom this weekend - I think I finally found a way to make both exercise space and sleeping/relaxing space and I'm excited to try it out. Other than that, grocery shopping is my biggest goal to accomplish now that JP is home with me. That and maybe a trip to the library - tomorrow if he's up to it.

Well, I hope everyone has a great weekend! Keep it up and remember to laugh - it really is the best medicine. I mean, come on...BURRITO ROLL!! It makes me laugh just thinking about it...
