I woke up today with one goal on my mind: to do nothing.
But of course, life always seems to get in the way of that plan! Sleep when baby sleeps! That was my intention. But as soon as baby got to sleep I thought of all the wonderful things I could do while baby was napping - laundry! meal planning! meal prep! cleaning! blogging! – and I just knew I couldn’t sleep the morning away.
The past couple of days I’ve been helping my husband set up the company office. It was fun to see a dreary and boring space turn into something a little more professional with a slight female touch added. Once it is completed, I will take some pictures, all that’s left is to hang up some frames, some art, and little more organizing and the place will be perfect! But it’s definitely been a bit of work, especially with a baby in tow.
I have to admit that my weightloss has taken a bit of a back seat at the moment. After losing 12 pounds last month, I was stuck with a few days of a baby who wouldn’t sleep, and when baby doesn’t sleep, mama doesn’t sleep. No sleep = a carb breakdown for me. When I’m that exhausted coffee can’t even help – only spoonfuls of Nutella & Peanut Butter will. Seriously. Try it. It’s heaven. Except for your ass.
While I haven’t gained anything back, I’m definitely looking forward to getting back on track. This Monday I start a jogging stroller circuit training class, which goes on twice a week for 8 weeks, and I’m hoping it actually makes me start to enjoy jogging more and want to eat healthier foods again. It’s such a silly thing, this mind over matter thing.
My mind knows that there are “bad” foods out there. I know that when I eat bad food (ie. ice cream, nutella, white bread) I feel like crap afterwards, almost immediately I get a sugar rush and then I’m stuck with a downward spiral of getting more and more sluggish by the second…. until my next bite of something sweet or chocolatey!….
SIGH… Do you know how hard it is to hear your thoughts with 2 kids shouting in the bathtub?
Along with this busy week of mine, I’ve also started working on a side project to Fab Brunette, which I’m super excited to share with you guys as soon as it’s ready…. which may be never as I hardly have time to update anything without my daughter shouting from the bathtub… “Hey mommy! Hey! Look! You don’t want to miss this!”
(that’s a sigh in french…)
I should get back to my super exciting life of drying off kids, putting one to bed and watching Harry Potter with the other one.
Bon nuit. More to come soon when I have a chance to gather my thoughts. In peace…
