The best laid plans..

What is it they say about the best laid plans?

Seriously, I don't know. But I do know that last week my plans didn't mean squat!

Everything was fine until Wednesday morning. I had had it with no sleep b/c of DS2 so I called the pediatrician. We were JUST there the Friday before (10/17) and his ears were clear. Were they on Wednesday? NOPE. Full of pus. So we left there with antibiotic #3 for this infection. ARGH!!! Thank god he started sleeping better immediately. But, b/c I was gone most of the day with him I didn't get to work much during the day. So I had to work at night. I hate working at night! But I am very thankful that I have the job that I do and that I have a very understanding boss. So needless to say I didn't get to do what I wanted to do last week.

On Thursday, I had my first workout with my new trainer. He was pretty good!! I left there excited to be working with him. He didn't weigh me (thank god) but he will this week. I didn't know I was a stress eater but last week I found myself stress eating. The scale is moving back down, so that is a good thing.

On Saturday I went downstairs and got on the elliptical! I'm no where near where I used to be, but I am starting out slow. So I did 10 minutes (I know, not much) but they were 10 HARD minutes! I hope to increase it a little every week and be back up to 30 minutes 3-4 times a week. I am going to try to get on there Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week. It will be tough as the first part of my week looks to be a tad hectic, but it's only 10 minutes! I just loaded my iPod with all of Roni's Ask Roni sessions so I have plenty to listen to while I am chugging away down there. I love that elliptical b/c I just put my ipod in the docking station and it plays through the speakers in the elliptical! How cool!!! :)

Okay, better get back to it. I have a lot to acocmplish before I go to bed tonight! A mother's work is never done. Have a great OP day!!!

I am so jealous, I wish my treadmill had the IPod dock, they came out with them about a month after I bought mine!
I hope DS is feeling better and still sleeping fine! Keep us updated!

Hey so sorry that your son was sick. I'm not looking forward to that part of motherhood. I am also sooooo sorry that I missed your birthday. I hope you had a great one......did hubby get you something good??

Way to go on the new trainer. I told Rich that is one thing I want for Christmas........I thought that would be a great way to start out the new year after having a baby. Not to mention I'm going to need someone to scream at me to get my butt back in shape. Wonder if Jillian from Biggest Loser is available??

So in regards to BF - does DS2 do good even after having a bottle in the hospital?? I just really want my hubby to be able to participate right after Will is born and he is dying to help. I feel so bad sometimes because even with the aggrevation of being pregnant I still get to experience Will in a way that Rich can't. He is soooo excited and sometimes he feels a little left out when Will seems to be communicating with me via kicks and rolls.

Amanda....HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY GIRL!! aww to be 30 again. I am so jealious...LOL.

Sounds like you are definately on the right track with your trainer. Don't sweat the "just 10 minutes" before you know it you will be kicking butt and taking names. I have never been able to use an elliptical...kills my knees and back!!!
Keep up the good work. Hope your little one is better soon.
