what's up

This is what’s up!

Just want to do a quick check-in.  As you read from Lexy and Carman’s posts we’ve all agreed to get better at checking in to help us all be accountable!

Here’s a few picture highlights: recording my workouts, new toys for Cruz, finding tarantula’s on my porch, Cruz starts rice cereal, 4 pounds from my goal ahhh!!!, the most delicious homemade Korean food from my sweet Korean neighbor, Cole’s starts taekwonsoccer???, love chill in with my boys, and going on a date to the movies with Cole!

I’ve been fighting a sinus infection for the last 2 weeks and it is seriously kicking my butt.  After one round of antibiotics and me telling myself I was getting better for a week, I finally went to a doctor and she put me on a 20-day antibiotic.  Oh joy!  I feel like the sinus infection has really affected my daily schedule and ability to get stuff done.  Cruz is going through a growth period and his sleeping schedule has been a little crazy.  So sickness, plus lack of sleep, plus being a single mom, plus school, plus soccer, plus my house being a pain in the A to constantly keep clean, blah blah blah, do you feel me?  23 DAYS!!!  AHHHH!  Cannot wait to sleep for an entire day, like door closed mommy is in bed for the day, do not disturb unless to bring me starburst jelly beans and ice cream!

The one good thing about being sick is I haven’t been that hungry.  So I’ve been consistent with sticking to my paleo diet during the week.  I have been giving myself cheat meals which usually turn into cheat days or sometimes cheat weekends :)  However, I’ve still been able to continue on my losing path.  Since being paleo, I’ve lost 3.7lbs, which honestly I don’t feel is a huge difference from my losses with WW, but whatever, it’s a challenge, it’s temporary, this will not be a lifestyle change!

As for workouts, I tried out a gym here in Austin and honestly didn’t love it.  I felt like the classes didn’t really challenge me.  I wasn’t comfortable with the childcare for Cruz and the membership is super expensive.  So I’ve gone back to what has worked for me…another round of P90X2!!  I finished my first 90 days and had a total loss of 21 pounds.  Pretty freaking awesome!!

That’s about all for me.  Just taking it day by day.  Thought this was pretty funny and totally true for me!!!
