Poor kid. He's running a high fever (101), but otherwise he's acting okay. Roseola is going around the daycare, so this fever could last a while. Sigh... So needless to say I didn't make it to the gym last night. I am going to TRY to go tonight, but I got broken sleep last night so I am pretty tired. Nothing like a wide awake 3 year old at 2:00 in the morning. He wanted me to snuggle with him and I tried, but he was too hot for me. Then he wanted me again at 3:45 after I crawled back in my bed at 2:15 and didn't even feel like I had went back to sleep. :(
Dinner last night was something quick b/c I didn't get to the store before the daycare called me to come pick him up and DH didn't get home early either. I am battling sinus drainage and a cough so needless to say I have been drinking a ton of water--probably no more than normal, but it feels like it!
I read someone else's blog yesterday (can't remember who--sorry!!) that was commenting on those of us who are struggling right now. Yes, it's summer and fresh fruits and veggies are all around us. Yes, it's nice out so we can get outside an exercise. But for me? This is getting old. Yesterday I opened up the pantry and looked inside and said I really don't want to do this anymore. I am tired of this journey. I don't want to do this anymore! (Throws self on the floor and wails arms and legs!!) :) I don't want to, but you know what? I will. I will continue b/c I know if I don't my health and my future will be at risk. Some days, being OP is soooo easy! Others, it takes all I have to not inhale everything in sight. Yesterday, my downfall was graham crackers. DS pick at the store last week. They are Honey Maid Bees so they are little and you can grab a handful and not even think twice. So, yes I am struggling right now, but I will over come. I really am going to try. This week, it's a fight every day, but with dinner being planned and breakfast not hard, my only hard time is lunch and the afternoons. Today, I plan to take a nap with DS. So today is taken care of! Sorry this part got so long, but I had to get it off my chest.
Here is how yesterday shaped up. It was a carb fest and my body did NOT appreciate me last night. Maybe a lesson learned??? We'll see...
B--oatmeal (3), Healthy Choice Sausage (2), watermelon (1)=6
L--Lean Cuisine Southwest Panini (6), carrots (0), Schwan's Quick Fries (3)=9
D--Schwan's Chicken Fries (3), Quick Fries (3) AGAIN, green beans (0)-6g
S--Dairy Queen small chocolate dipped cone=8--I justified this b/c my throat was soo scratchy and it felt so good. Honestly, I didn't cough for a couple hours after having this. It was great! :)
I didn't add the Bees in there--I'll add 5 for good measure.
148 ounces of water, 3 fruits and veggies, 0 milk. Need to do better with the milk and fruits and veggies today. Will try to see what I can come up with. :)
I am going to take Jynell's advice this week about not having a lot of water the day before WI. Maybe limit myself to 100 ounces. I drink a lot of liquids anyway so this may be hard! But I am going to try...
Have a great OP day everyone!!
