Okay so day 2 I caved and had a cupcake left over from the weekend... yea one of the ones i said I was going to throw away. I blame it on not getting to workout. I'm telling you people when you workout it motivates you to eat better. Even though weight loss is 80% what you eat... you'll be WAY more likely to eat right if you're also working out. Fact.
BUT day 3 (yesterday) I'm so freaking proud of myself. We went to McDonald's for dinner and I got a salad, took off the corn chip things and as much cheese as i could and then topped it with grilled chicken and balsamic vin dressing! Also K's running group (more on that later) had Popsicles that i DID NOT EAT!!! AND I got an extra mile in my workout by jog/walking with K!
So I mentioned how god-awful the smoothie was... i like it now! WHAT? I find my taste buds are changing and it's only been 3 days. Crazy right? Also I've been sleeping better! I know it sounds like nonsense but it's TRUE i tell you! This whole non-processed food thing may or may not be the magical cure to losing weight, that's yet to be determined BUT it's definitely helping with other parts of my body/life!
A while back I did a 5k with my friends and ever since then Kinsley has been BEGGING to "run" with me. So a friend contacted me about kids running group that's starting up wondering if I would be interested. So Kinsley and I went out last night and you know what? K ran a freaking MILE! Holla!
When they first started my little bean was a the back of the pack, she is after all the youngest and smallest... but that little turtle kept at it! I'm so proud of her! I ran/walked with her and we would stop after every lap but then I would look down and she was gone! Running again! I didn't push her, just encouraged her and she was AWESOME! I'm so proud of my little bean!
Other notes, Parker has an ear infection AGAIN! I know I know, get tubes... and we are, July 3. Point of me telling you this is to trust your Momma intuition. He was off, had a mild fever off and on and was SUPER snotty, coughing, and stopped eating as much. When my son doesn't shovel in food like a trash compactor, something is wrong. So my beyond awesome sister-in-law used her day off to come and take care of little man and take him to the doctor for me so i wouldn't miss work. I felt bad asking her since he didn't have a fever and was acting normal, but i just had a feeling. And you know what? Full out ear infection in one ear and they could see the build up starting in the other ear! BAM! Win for Mom! Also they are putting him back on his nebulizer since he has a history of chest issues and his cough is really bad. So little man is on the mend and will be getting tubes NOT SOON ENOUGH!
