Well, here we are at Friday again. Today I am having a really emotional day. As in, I can't stop crying! My kiddos are so incredibly confused. We are taking them to their grandparents for the weekend while we house hunt, and they think we are moving without them. It's exhausting trying to explain to them, when their little minds don't get it.
I didn't weigh this morning; my 2 year old figured out how to jump out of his crib, so we were up pretty early. Whenever that happens I go into zombie mode, changing diapers, getting kids dressed, getting breakfast, and completely zone out weighing before I eat or drink.
My goals for this weekend and this next coming week are:
Eat no grains or dairy. I am packing up some chicken, nuts, fruits and vegetables to take with me so I don't screw up while out of town.
Drink water. Still a hardship for me. But I'm working on it.
Not give up or get depressed about lack of exercise. In a perfect world I'd have time and the physical ability to even do just 20 minutes on the treadmill. But I don't live in a perfect world, so I have to be creative.
I'm really struggling to stay positive and make this whole move an adventure for my kids. I know that if they see me crying all the time (it is impossibly hard leaving my family and friends) that it will drag them down and make them scared. So I'm trying to stay upbeat, with frequent trips to the bathroom for a little cry. ;-)
I hope that by Monday I'll see a weight loss from cutting out grains and dairy. I am sticking to this Perfect 10 Challenge, even though I really don't see how I can lose 20 pounds. Although that started out as my main goal, things have changed drastically in my life, and now my goal is to learn to live healthy no matter what stage of life I'm in.
Kyle made a great statement: "you lose weight at the table, but you get healthy at the gym." So true!
So, although I do plan to eat healthy, I will also work on fitting in some exercise here and there, even if it's just 5 minutes of marching in place, 5 push ups here and there, etc...
Ok, fact about myself:
My ankles "crack" when I walk. It sounds like I have Snap, Crackle and Pop from Rice Krispies living in my ankle joints! I could never be a Super Stealthy Sneaky Spy because my ankles would give me away every time. It doesn't hurt and it's been that way ever since I can remember. Anyone else have this?
Well, I'd best be off. I have a busy weekend ahead, as I'm sure most of you all do too! I'm not the only one with a crazy life! :-D
