Back to the real world

We survived our virus infected trip to GWL.  I am so tired of my boys being sick.  Being a woman makes you tough and just get through it, but boys are a completely different story.  My big boy turns into a baby and my little boy is just sick and I feel bad for him.  L had a fever the whole weekend despite the antibiotics we started him on Friday night and I guess Chad has the same thing.  I was up all night with L at the hotel Saturday night while Chad came home and slept.  I think I slept an hour total.  It made for a really long day on Sunday.

On the other hand, our trip was pretty good.  I will definitely take them back when they are older and can ride all of the rides.  They have a cool kid area, wave pool, and lazy river that Kaylee enjoyed.  They had a little coloring area, arcade, and story time as well.  K really liked it and wants to go back.

I did pretty good with my eating while there.  We went out for mexican food on Saturday night and I had the soup and only a few chips.  Sunday morning I felt "hungover" due to the lack of sleep so the eating went down the drain all day on Sunday.  I was horrible.  I had a big cinnamon roll for breakfast, Fudruckers for lunch, and ramen for dinner along with lots of girl scout cookies.  How much salt can one person ingest in one day?  My goodness....

Now that I have a bazillion cookies in my house, it makes it hard to get back on track.  I gained 3 pounds over the weekend so I really need to get them back off.  I have to stick to my diet this week and hit the gym.

Good Weeks and not so good weekends

Weight loss is a never ending cycle of ups and downs for me.  I don't know if I am just not consistent enough, my husband life gets in the way, or if this is just normal.  I'm pretty sure it is a mixture of all 3 and probably some other stuff as well.

I have been doing great during the week, but the past 2 weekends have been rough with being out of town and our V-day celebration without the kiddos.  Who can resist good food and wine when you don't have kids to watch for the night?  It is called total relaxation and I enjoyed every bit of it.   This weekend is sure to be the same as the past two since we are going to GWL.  It never fails that after a day of swimming, I am starving and eat like a piggy.  I am going to try and keep it to a minimum.  Who am I kidding...it's not like I will really be swimming since I will probably be the one with L in the kiddie area just hanging out most of the day.

After this trip, I don't have anything planned until...well for a long time.  Therefore, I will be back on track.  I have started to feel better about the way I look since working out more regularly.  I have not lost any weight (I'm sitting at 149) but I feel like the cellulite and jiggly is getting a little better and I got a compliment on my ass which hasn't happened since I was about 24 years old.  So that is an compliment I will soak in and be happy very about!

Do you have any big plans coming up?

A little update...

Well the past week or so has flown by and there is not enough time in the day to get anything accomplished.  I have been fighting off some horrible sweet cravings for the past week and to be honest I indulged quite a few times.  It has been rough and my scale has confirmed it.  There is always tomorrow, right?

I am back on track and have lost the 2 lbs I gained last week and yes, that means I paid $5 into our 90 day weight loss challenge.  On the other hand, my mom is killing the competition.  She has lost 15 lbs in the past 5 weeks and my dad is not too far behind.  They have done an awesome job eating and working out.  We all got memberships to Lifetime fitness and while it is sort of pricey it is amazing.  We all really enjoy going up there.  It is big and spacious with plenty of machines so you don't have to wait.  It is clean and the kid area is big and my kids like going there.  The kid area is included in our monthly cost and they will watch them for up to 2 hours each day.  The best part is the pool, sauna, and hot tub area. It is sort of like a hotel without rooms.  We all go work out and then swim with the kiddos for a while.  It has been fun!

So, I really am going to take some pictures at the beginning of March to see it there are any visible differences in my body.  My weight has pretty much been around the same for the past 2 months, but I feel like I am building some muscle.  I can't tell too much and/or maybe it is all in my own little head.   Who knows, but the next 2 weeks are going to be really busy with K's birthday, going to Austin for Chad's grandmother's birthday, and then Great Wolf lodge the following weekend.  I am so excited about GWL, but not excited about the bathing suit part...can we say pasty white skin...Ugh
