This week

Friday, May 11, 2012

This week was a roller coaster of emotions. I had a hectic, crazy week. I got my workouts in however and whenever I could. Oh well, such is life!

My cold is long gone but the feeling in my toes is now starting up my calf and into my thigh. All in my left leg. I feel it in Zumba and also when in bed. So, I can't pin point what is aggravating this shooting pain. Yes, I know I should see a doctor but as I mentioned I been busy. It is tough putting yourself on the top of the list when your a mom.

My nutrition is okay. I get plenty of fruit, veggies and water. However, the end of the day is always a challenge. Perfect example was today, great healthy low cal low fat breakfast, great healthy low cal low fat lunch, great healthy low cal low fat snack and great healthy low cal low fat dinner. Done and with calories and every other category calories to wait, "Mommy/daddy "Can we get ice-cream?" Well, okay. One lousy "like it" size later and poof! Bye-Bye calorie range. Why could I not just order a bottle of water! And just watch our children enjoy themselves? Okay, enough whining, it was my decision and it is time to let it go.

Have a wonderful weekend and for you amazing spark moms I wish you a fabulous Mother's Day!

    Oh how I can relate to all of the above!!! Busy busy busy...and no end in sight. I too cave in the evenings...ugh!! With hubby on midnights evenings are when he is eating ect so it is double difficult. I try to snack on fruits and veggies but am not always successful emoticon

    I understand about the pain, they are all right. Call the doc...and i will pray it is something simple emoticon

    I know that problem with the ice cream stands...uggg...I do work on getting sugar free or low fat fro yo if they have that option. Don't get too hung up on it. Life is about enjoying those little moments with our kids. Thats why we workout right? Have a great day!

    Hectic is an epidemic this time of year! It's ironic that just when we expect things to slow down for summer and kids get out of school things seem to speed up exponentially!

    I'm glad your cold is finally gone. I hope you can make the time to get that leg checked out. It IS tough with so much going on so I'm praying for that to fall into place and for you to get some answers soon.

    I have the same problem with nutrition. I do great all day and at night I get the munchies. I'm working on some solutions like limiting myself to a cup of tea and a chocolate graham cracker with a little peanut butter. I think an occasional ice cream treat with your family will actually help you stay on track since we need to be realistic about this healthy lifestyle change over the long haul.

    Happy Birthday to Logan and Happy Mother's Day to you Anne!

    emoticon emoticon Sounds a bit like sciatica.Hope it improves. I am twinging a bit but haven't done any exercise other than walking, so no strength training, stretching or yoga! My body really misses it!

    Oh well there is always tomorrow!

    Happy Mother's Day. emoticon

    Sorry to hear about your leg. Hopefully you get some time to go to the doctor soon. Please make yourself a priority Anne--you're too important to let it slide. And an ice cream every now and then is a nice treat to have with your family, so enjoy.

    Go see the doctor! I'm done lecturing. As for the ice cream, it seems to me that you are working out more than a lot and eating healthy. One treat isn't going to undo all of your hard work, but you already know that.

    Now, on Monday, call the doctor. Okay, I'll stop nagging.

    Happy Mother's Day!
