(Warning: I am going to toot my own horn) I am pretty good at what I do, I must say. I am more consistent with other people's kids than my own, everything is a learning experience (that is the teacher in me), and I balance things pretty well....however, you did hear me say RUN a child care business right?? That means I would get the weekend off and I would chose a day in the middle of the week to have off. lol. I can dream right?? Or I guess I could just go back to teaching.
I went to Walmart tonight. Fun right?? I went in for 3 items and came out with 8. Don't you hate when that happens??
I didn't exercise. Hubby went to poker, so that leaves me with the kids by myself. I like when at least one of us is interacting with the children...okay there is my excuse again. Frankly, I have no motivation on rainy days. Poor huh?
Breakfast: Arnold bread whole grain toasted with spray butter and a layer of grape jelly
Hot tea with sweetener and `1% milk
Snack: 6 cheese curls....:(
Lunch: Arnold bread with ham, lettuce, light miracle whip, 1/2 cup of Spaghettios, pack of 100 calorie Hostess cupcakes
Snack: none (see I am not doing too bad...till.....)
Dinner: 3 pieces of Pizza (large ones too) :( but they were SO delicious.
Exercise: None. I know I was supposed to get on the treadmill. Where does time go?? ANd why am I not there now?? There is such a thing as exercising too late and this is too late for me. I can't unwind till midnight. 7:00 is my cut-off. Sleep is important too.
Water: 64 oz. ANd then some. Got a new water bottle like my Moms and I love it. It holds 32 oz and has a straw...for those of you who know me...I need me a straw lol :) I even got my kids they own water bottle since they kept stealing mine all weekend. I want them to start drinking more water too. They love having their "own".
Feeling: Okay today. I vented to my mom so I feel better. I just feel discouraged with the way things are going. I want more money to spend on myself..so I can pay for WW and the gym for both hubby and I with the childcare services. That would be PRIME. But we can't all have everything. So, I will be happy to be healthy and have time with my kids.
- Try to exercise in the mid-morning while the littlest one I sit for is napping. I HAVE to work this in somehow.
- Let go of the negatives in my life. This could be people, thoughts, images, words I say, etc. I have one down and a couple more to go. I enjoy my positive world.
- Spend less time worrying about my house and weight and more about my hubby, my kids, and me.
Signing off. I have to get my pjs on and settle down to watch my Gossip Girl. Night loves.
