Hey friends, so this week I've been a bit behind in life.
My house has been a mess (it gets cleaned every AM before everyone is awake, but it cant stay that way) and it needs a BIG scrub down....you know, getting down on hands and knees and scrubbing things. Maybe even moving furniture to get the dust bunnies that now are probably the size of a small horse.
As an OCD person, a messy house means a scattered brain. I've also been behind in work, and I've not been tracking my food or exercising.
It's like a domino effect.
BAD eating, no tracking makes me sluggish and it equates to me not as effective in the mother/wife/domestic/work department. I promise, once you start eating better and exercising, life gets so much manageable!
But wow is it easy to make excuses and eat bad. It started with a weekend of eating a meal out, then it spiraled out of control after not getting to the grocery store on time-. And wow, aren't drive-thrus SO easy!
The only positive thing is, I always feed Kie better than I eat. He always gets homemade meals and fruit/veggies.
So why can't I always do that for myself? Because I'm lazy, simple as that.
Also, Kie and Kix have come down with a little cold, or something.
Kie has handled it pretty well, only a few meltdowns when he hasn't gotten in a nap.
Kix JUST got sick and it's sad to see such a small baby feel bad.
So, THIS mom has gotta scrub the house and get my babies better!
As for the scale, I don't even want to be honest about my weight...because I may cry.
But, I've GAINED. How do I gain so easily?
I don't know!
I think because I'm a professional on what to not eat and when to eat in order to put on weight.
So yes, I've gained maybe 2-3lbs since last week.
I'm sure a lot of it has to do with water retention and overly salty foods--
but a lot also has to do with milkshakes, Blizzards and fries.
I feel bad but in order for me to get on track again, I gotta deep clean my house--organize and start to move again. And ultimately make better choices on what to eat.
Hope everyone else is doing better than I am in the food/exercise department!
I could use some encouragement...and it probably wouldn't hurt if I'd put down the Dove Chocolates!
Next blog post will cover the baby carriers I've used and my reviews.
Slings, Wraps and Carriers...Oh, my!
Until next time,

Yes, you read that correctly. I let my husband cut my hair. And no, not a small little trim... I'm talking about he cut off 14 inches...
I know I've mentioned this a few times in previous posts, that we have been looking for a head board. We checked out Pottery Barn, Wes...
