Rough Spot

I am having a bit of a rough time this morning.

Not because of weight.

I am down another pound to 171.5. Can we get a woo hoo?!?


Because today was Landry's first day of preschool.

And even though I told him all along I couldnt stay, the tears and the screaming started to come anyways.

And I was the last parent to leave.

And I had to leave him screaming.

I feel like such a bad mom right now.

I came home and went downstairs to try to do Plyometrics to take my mind off of it. I mean, I pick Landry up at 11 so it isnt like it is that long or anything.

And during the warm up, every time I bounced it feels like my head is going to explode. Ugh. So I shut off the dvd. I just cant push thru it today.

I was going to go to the gym tonight, but I texted Aaron and told him I am still too exhausted. I am just going to go to bed early. I just need some rest to get over this last bit of cold.

On the plus side, last night I gave Xavier and Landry some Nyquil and Xavier only got up once at 3am to say all his covers were on the floor and he needed help getting them back up. And then I actually woke up late today at 7:07 and had to run like a mad woman getting the kids ready for school. Normally I get up at 6:30 and get myself ready first then get Xavier up and Landry last. Thankfully it was Landry who woke up saying he had to go potty or we all would still probably be sleeping. LOL. Even Xavier was still sleeping!

And I even went to bed at 8:30 last night!

K had a migraine (which now I do too) last night so she wanted to rest and take some of her drugs to help it pass. I just went for a small walk (about a mile total for there and back) up the street to get a book from one of my neighbors. Dexter is doing a very interesting thing. They handed these books out for free- the book is called In Defense of Food- An Eater's Manifesto by Michale Pollan. And what the community is to do is read the book, sign your name in the front, and pass the book onto someone else to read in the community. Very cool idea huh? I just started to read it- only a couple pages in, but it is about how we should eat mostly veggies. How meat should be considered a side dish, etc. I will definitely share more with you as I read it.

Well anyways...

Walking to my neighbors and back, a couple times I thought I was going to have to heave. Seriously. I started coughing. The coughing turned to gagging and I just thank God that I hadnt eaten dinner yet. Especially with all the kids playing outside. LOL. I finally pulled myself together and somehow made it back home.

The worst part is that I have been sneezing like crazy. And everytime I sneeze (or cough) I have to shove my legs together really tight so I dont pee myself. Ah the joys of having kids huh? LOL.

Fast forward back to today.

I am hoping this migraine goes away. I will try to do plyo tonight if it does. If I cant do plyo because of the jumping, I will try to do some zumba. Otherwise it looks like it is just going to be a rest day for me. I just feel so drained. No really good way to explain it. I guess my body is telling me it needs a break. And I think it is time to give it one. I am not heartbroken about missing Plyo thats for sure, but I really wanted to complete a full 90 days. So we shall see!

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Tip of the Day:


  1. Things sure are going around, huh? I have a post-nasal drip/sore throat thing going on and not happy with the timing- only 19 days until my half!

    1. Ugh. Hope you get over it soon. Lots of veggies and rest!!

  2. Yay for another loss! I'm sorry to hear about the drama of first day of school. I'm sure he settled right in!

    Good luck with everything. Great list of tips.

    1. He did settle in. After a while he came out of a corner he decided to hide in and play. We will see how tomorrow goes!

  3. #7 on that list is my favorite!
    #17 Cracks me up - Very few people actually want stress :)

    I hope you are feeling better by now! I am behind in my blog reading, but you are doing great!

    1. Starting to feel better. I still have the dang nagging cough that is driving me crazy!
