Carpe Diem

Whooo boy. I ended up taking my son into the doctor yesterday. He is on antibiotics for an ear infection and 8 days later has developed a bad reaction. He has an itchy, red, bumpy rash all over his body. It totally looks like chicken pox, but it's not. It is really uncomfortable for him, though.

So, out went the plans for the concert at the library and a birthday party for one of his friends tonight. And in came the plan to take it easy at home, which frankly, I don't mind a bit. I'll take all the days I can get just being at home with my kiddos before the Moving Madness ensues. ;-)

I'm going to try to get in my Jillian workout today, which shouldn't be a problem. I've been doing really well with my eating, and I'm thankful for that. Yesterday I ended the day with meat loaf and a Weight Watcher's recipe I had for Oven Fries. I was grain and dairy free, besides the 2 squares of milk chocolate I had. Which is just fine with me. =)

I feel like just laying around all day and only doing the absolute bare minimum. But that doesn't help anything. Josh will be going out of town for work again tonight, and I always try to take things a little bit easier on the days he is not here to help with bedtime. But that doesn't mean I have to morph into a lazy slug. ;-)

I don't have much else to say, so I'll go get started on the things that need to be done. Pronto. =)


  1. Which Jillian tape are you doing?
    Sometime's a girl just needs chocolate ;)
    I'm sorry about the itchy baby! Is there anything the Dr. can do?

  2. I have lazy days too. Mostly they seem to happen on Monday...like I'm kind of worn out from the weekend and I just want to veg. Then, Tuesday, like today, I've recharged and I clean the house like mad.

    Sorry about your boy.

    Good question about the longevity of my diet. The reason that I am on it, is so that I can lower my body fat. I hit a plateau for several weeks. By taking out all sugar and white flour, my body is able to release that extra fat. Of course there is also lots of water, and whole foods that I'm eating that help with that too.

    My diet will shift when I get my body fat to the levels that I want. But, honestly, I really want my "normal" eating to be more of a whole foods diet. Since I've never done that, I need to teach myself how to cook foods that I will enjoy that are good for my body. That is the next phase. Also, at that point, I will increase my calories and create new "treat rewards" that will keep me on track on a daily basis.

    This is new territory for me...so it's a learning process.

    Hope your having a good day!

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your son, I hope he feels better soon!

  4. How did the oven fries come out? I'm always looking for a way to simulate fried anything.
