So when I weighed in on Wednesday, this number greeted me: 256.6. I'm so sad. Not only have I not been able to eat right (finances, we've been eating ramen and chili mostly) But I changed my workout routine, I thought I was working harder, but for less time, but I'm guessing I wasn't doing enough. I changed what I was doing on Wednesday, but that's not going to change that number in one day. There are several factors that could have this number be off. It's my time of month, and ramen and chili (the kind DH makes) have a lot of salt in them, and part of it could be water weight. I'm hoping this will come off easily now that I'm able to buy the veggies and eat like I had been before, mostly vegetarian. Still sad about that number, but not going to let it derail me!!
Today is Friday, my hard day. I say hard, because I have to deal with a lot of people and a chaotic situation, lots of kids. This is the day we meet our CC group and have classes. The kids kind of run amok during their free time. I keep a close eye on mine, but some parents just let their kids run crazy. My girls are so well behaved during this time, I'm so thankful! But it's hard on me with my social anxiety
Speaking of social, we have a field trip to an apple farm coming up in two weeks, I'm so excited! The girls are too! I'm also hoping DH and I can take the girls to the zoo during the week. I don't know if that will be possible since DH recently had to take some days off due to his back. If not we'll get the in-laws and all go on a Saturday. They went with us to the Atlanta Aquarium and loved it. I'd just rather go on a school day, not as many people. And DD just recently showed that she remembered nothing from when I taught her about dinosaurs, it was a few years ago. So we'll be doing a dinosaur unit and it would be great to end it with a trip to a museum. So much fun to be had this year!
My anxiety has been super high, and it is really draining me of energy. I don't know the cause, if there is one. I'm just anxious all the time and it build throughout the day till I'm just an exhausted mess. Working on trying to find the source of my anxiety, sometimes it just happens for no reason though.
I'm not doing as great on my challenges as I'd like to, and I'm going to have to really work hard to do better. I know I'm exhausted, but I can do this. I love challenges, they keep me motivated.
I don't work out in the mornings on Friday's so that I'm not exhausted or running behind. Though I do get up early as if I were going to work out so that my body can be fully awake by the time that we leave. So I'll probably rest for a little while when we get home, because Friday's really wear me out, and then work out before DH gets home.
I made those pumpkin muffins. I'm not loving them. But my kids really like them, so at least they won't waste! I made that pumpkin pudding, and I do like it, but I feel like there is something missing from it. Still going to eat it! i'm going to make the pumpkin bread and soup tomorrow to see how they turn out. Hopefully I'll find something pumpkin that is yummy and sates my cravings for pumpkin!
