I guess I do eat...stupid food tracker

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Tracking food really makes you look at what you eat, and what you are feeding your kids. Junk! Things I thought were fairly good for them, like chicken nuggets! *sigh
I let my husband talk me out of exercising today. I had my day planned and my athletic shoes on, and he said, "I don't know why you are starting to work out now when we go on vacation in three days." So I took a nap instead.
Energy is so low it's dragging on the floor. Kids are absolutely exhausting. My 9 month old has a double ear infection, so when he's not cruising around looking for cardboard to eat, he's crying and wanting to be carried. I haven't held him so much in a long time.
Does carrying a 22 pound weight around all day count as a workout? Maybe you wouldn't, but my arms say otherwise.
So all in all, not a very successful day but at least I am mindful of what I am eating. And drinking. Not sure how I can ever give up pop. If the alternative to pop is being skinny, I might rather be fat.
:D Har. I crack myself up.

    Take one day at a time. Exercise with your kids. Take them for a walk to the park or meet a friend with their kids. You can do video in your home or wear a pedometer to see how many miles you are carrying your baby when he or she is not feeling well. You should take that time out for yourself to do what you need to do. You will be a better mother wife and feel better as a person. I know it took me a long time to put me first even if it was only for 30 minutes a day. Take care of yourself you are worth the time and effort!

    I have an 18 month old and I think carrying them around is at least strength training. I could never give up pop either, but I switched to diet so I can save the calories. I drink too much to lose all of those calories.
