Now I'm sick. What is up with that?! My three year old had an eye infection and then my husband got it and this morning... Me and my one year old woke up to it. Grr.... I've been fighting off a sore throat, stuffy nose and swollen glands for a few days too. I feel miserable. I would like to remove my head from my body. Would that work? Probably not... Darn.

So Friday Saturday and Sunday were pretty much a bust for me... I won't even go into the things that I ate... or how much. I'm trying not to be too hard on myself and just move on. It's Monday, right? A new week to try again.
I swear I will never be one of those mom's that forces her kids to finish their plate. I think it's unhealthy. I grew up like that though and I think it could have something to do with my inability to leave food uneaten. I was around it all day Saturday and Sunday and I just couldn't seem to make myself stop. I couldn't find my full button and now I feel miserable.

Still going....

Maybe I'm not going strong... but I'm still going. :) I had whole wheat pancakes and pure maple syrup for breakfast. That's considered healthy, right? I also ate a hamburger for dinner last night. It was extra lean, grilled in my backyard and on a skinny bun... Ok, so I'm not doing quite as good as I could be, but I'm proud of myself so far. I had a friend get married on Tuesday and you should have seen the food table... *sigh* I had fruit, and some spinach artichoke dip on black bread and a whole wheat cracker. I'll admit, I had the tinyest bite of cheesecake and it wasn't very good and then a small bite of a chocolate and caramel covered pretzel rod. It doesn't count if you spit it out, right? :) I just had to confess a few things. Thanks for listening....
I finished my 5 day inferno program and I went super strong for that. It was hard the first 2 days but after that I felt great. I didn't even really have a "cheat" meal that week. I ate two pieces of banana bread and one bite of chocolate zucchini cake on sat and that was it. :) I think it was easier than this week because I had a written plan for my diet. Now I'm just eating healthy but without the direction. I lost two pounds in five days and a couple of inches. My husband did my BF% reading again and it was only 15%. I kept thinking it had to be a mistake and then I figured out he did my tricep pinch wrong so I've got to get it redone before I really know where I'm at there. Also, my workouts haven't been so great this week... I haven't been feeling too good and there's been a lot going on for me. I know my emotional state plays a role in my physical well being too and I'm a little off right now. It's all about where we're going right? Right!

Stay strong!!

Day 3

I have just finished out day three and I'm ready to turn out the lights. It should be Friday... Why isn't it Friday? This Inferno program is kicking my trash. I feel tired and grumpy today and I'm having some serious sweet tooth issues. Chocolate usually makes everything better but I refuse to give up. I've got three weeks baby and I'm going all the way. I will not crack! (I do get a cheat meal though and I'm looking forward to that!)
My husband and three year old have had awful stomach pains and bathroom issues for the past two days and that has not been any fun. It makes me appreciate our general good health. I really don't deal very well with things like this. It's hard for me to keep a smile on my face and stay positive... I'm really not the most compassionate person by nature and it's something I have to work on.
I'm also missing a "best friend." You know, one of those girls that you just feel super close to and can call and talk to about anything, show up at their house unannounced with kids in tow and just chill all afternoon, someone that will take your kids at a moments notice and not even care, someone to watch sappy movies with and go out to lunch with you just because... I miss my old city and my old friends.... I had a few of those there. I have yet to establish one of those relationships back here in my hometown. Most of my friends from high school have moved on and aren't around here anymore or else we're just not close anymore. I do have some great family relationships though for which I am truly thankful, but friends have always been very important to me and I'm not sure why I feel I'm lacking. I need to make a better effort I guess. My best friend from my youth moved to Pennsylvania a while back and is coming for a month long visit... I'm so stink'n excited I could cry! She is like a favorite old pair of shoes you haven't worn in forever, and then when you put them on... it's like home. We may not see each other or talk to each other in months, but when we do... I love it! I seriously can't wait.

So the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been slacking for sure. I can feel my butt sagging just a little (more than usual anyway.) I've been water skiing quite a bit though so that's my excuse for not working out much... I'm going to go water skiing :) Good news though! I finally ordered TurboFire from and I'm super duper excited! It's supposed to come in the mail tomorrow though I wish it was yesterday so I could have started today. I'm all about starting things on Mondays. It's a fresh start to a new week :) But we're actually going camping Thursday - Saturday so I don't really want to start until next Monday because I have a few yummy camping things I'm going to be eating like S'mores and dutch oven cobbler :)
Our Hawaii trip is only 39 days away! and I'm beyond excited! So that's going to be 32 days of squeaky clean eating and working out like crazy. I've been working hard for this for a whole year (yesterday in fact!) now and I'm going to have to find a new reason to keep going after our trip. I was talking to my bro-in-law the other days and he was telling me that I shouldn't push myself so hard because I'll just lose it all when I have another baby and stop working out. I told him that's not going to happen because this is my lifestyle. I won't let it happen!
I'll let you know what I think if the new program when it comes :)
