Slipping Up

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

This weekend has been really tough for me.

My son has another ear infection that he's been fighting for almost two weeks. He developed an allergic reaction to his antibiotics so we had to stop. His infection got worse and his eardrum ruptured (3rd time this has happened).

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow he's been staying home with my husband, so that's been a great help and relief.

I think the stress of work, taking care of my son, and planning his first birthday party, and a bunch of other things really got to me this week.

Today I broke my No Soda Streak- almost 3 weeks strong! I had a coke without even thinking about it. I just thought it would taste good and helped myself. We've been watching Vampire Diaries on Netflix and I kinda felt like a sugar vampire- Just couldn't help but be drawn to it!

Good news? I got a workout in (YAY Jillian Michaels!).

She really kicks my butt but I did Day 1 of 30 Day Shred. That's a little victory for me!

Tomorrow is a new day and here's to hoping it's better than today =)

    Sorry to hear you son isn't doing well, but congrats on getting a 3 week streak for no soda! Even though you did slip up, I myself would never go that long without soda.

    Also congrats on getting the first day of 30 day shred, I myself tried the first day and had a asthma attack.

    Poor baby, no fun when your kids are sick. Hope he gets better. And good for you, you may have had small slip ups, but you still workout which is really good for you.

    I'm more than a little inclined to believe in this. I've read this and a couple of other blog posts tonight, all of which inspire me to go back and kick butt tomorrow with my weight loss after two high carb days. Thanks, Glenn
