So this morning, I had the brilliant idea to set daily goals instead of long term goals. Well, I still have long term goals but I realized they seem to way me down. It seems too far away and out of touch. Sigh. But daily goals… you can achieve… well, daily. By the end of the day, you know if you succeeded or failed.
So today, I decided I wouldn’t eat any processed foods. To be honest, it started out as no fried foods for the day because fried food is love to me!!!!!! But I had some leftovers that I needed to polish off (I know, death trap number UNO for the dieter!!!)… but I make myself feel better by telling myself… “would God rather me eat this or waste it?” Eating it always seems to win. Hehehehe. I set a second goal to be conscious of what I’m putting into my body. I eat standing up, walking around, and while feeding O. It hasn’t been a good thing for me at all. How do I know? The freaking addition of 7 extra pounds!!!!! I had another baby plus one extra pound added!!! WTH. I don’t dwell on it but I do feel like I’m not healthy. It’s really not about aesthetics for me anymore… I just plain don’t like feeling my gut just chillin’ on top of my thighs.
Anyhow, so that’s what I decided to do.
O’s wonderful aunt and my gracious sister… bought us the “Tangled” dvd. O loves it. I think I love it even more. Maybe my sister loves it most. (hehehe… all from the movie… just changed it a bit)!!! I cried. My most favorite Disney movie to date. I loved it more because I was able to watch it with O with her showing understanding. The little critter peeled her eyes open until 12:30am the first night we started watching it. Since then, I think we’ve already watched it seven times. Once already this morning.
Flynn Rider is pretty hot if I may say so myself. Olivia is also very much into a Korean cartoon called, “Pororo.” It has become a new obsession for her as well as “Bubble Guppies” on Nick. I know I shouldn’t let her watch too much TV but I genuinely think she learns a great deal from watching things on TV. To each their own, right Mommies!!!?
This week seems to be flying by. I feel like I’m constantly trying to catch up with the day. Thankfully, the PMS is slowly going away and I am feeling a lot better. The beers have been helping. Hehehe. I’m going to turn into Al Bundy soon. And although, this month was another negative in the preggo department, I feel like the time will come soon. I’m still trying to clear out the doubt that hounds and screams at me “You are not a good mother or you can’t handle another baby!!”
