I have a sick DS

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.
Totall--29+5=34--OUCH!
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!!

Bless your heart! I'm sick of WW, too. I know it's a good program that works and all, but I totally understand where you're coming from.

I think that's why I'm focusing so much energy on exercise.

We'll all get through this slump together!

I hope your little boy gets to feeling better soon!!

Boy it must be something going around....I've got the WW blues as well. But we'll get thru this slump like we always do, right????

I was feeling the same way yesterday. We walked to dinner and I wanted the Chicken Salad so bad. I splurged and used my activity points and a couple of activity points and it was worth it.
I hope DS breaks the fever quickly, that is no fun for him or you!

Must be something in the air, my daughter was running fever yesterday as well, but she seemed better after "hangin out with MawMaw" all day cuz I had to work!!

Hope your baby feels better soon and as for giving up..we WON'T LET YA!! :-P hahaha

I've thought about SB before I joined WW and have considered re-reading the book and giving it a try...

Putting the old sweat band on the list & gonna look up your song picks this weekend!!

You can start this CP25K anytime you want because although it's set up in weeks, it's also self-paced since you can repeat a week if you feel you need to. I hope you join in!!

*Hugs* I'm so sorry to hear the little one is sick. I hope he feels better soon. I hear ya when it comes to the WW blues but keep the faith and this will pass. Take care of yourself and have a great day.

I hope your little guy feels better! I know what you mean, I only lasted 3 weeks counting everything and I was sick of it too. hang in there.......

I think that if DS has fever that gives you the free pas to eat creamies!! I hope he feels better soon (and so do you). Do you take the Schwan's delivery. Someone in my WW said the Orange/Lime frozen things are 0 points. But there is only one flavor that is 0 the rest are 3 so check. Good luck. Hang in there.

It can be frustrating...it sounds like a lot of us are in the same boat. But I think the frustation "goes with the territory." At times we have those high highs...but then others we are tired of keeping track of points. Keep with it though...its worth it. I hope your DS is feeling better soon.

I can relate to your slump. We all go through it and it makes us stronger. I just got back into my groove after a 3 week slump. It does come with the territory unfortunately. You're doing great though :) !
