I have stronger words, but since I’m down this path of self improvement, watching my potty mouth seems like a good thing to add in…. and my 3 year old repeated me yesterday when I exclaimed “What the cr*p and sh*t!” #MomFail 🤦🏼♀️ …. In my defense, in one of my newly organized drawers of art supplies, I found a pocket knife and some 550 cord that clearly my husband had stuffed in the drawer. With the kid’s art supplies! Why??? … Clearly my use of foul language was justified. Still, I don’t want to get a call from preschool because my kid is that kid in class shouting obscenities!
Back to the point… I didn’t do great yesterday. I could have done a lot worse, but I’m pretty unhappy with myself. I tried to keep track of everything, and I drank my water. I just ate a lot of things that I really didn’t plan to and I felt out of control. Amazingly though, I only went over my calories by 209… as long as I didn’t forget to log something? I just wish I felt in control and made better choices.
I tried to give myself permission to eat whatever I want all weekend with the whole “Well, I’ve messed up… I’ll just start over on Monday” mentality. But then I saw a Cat & Nat clip on Facebook and they were trying to chat with Rachel Hollis (Girl, Wash Your Face), which reminded me that I saw she has a podcast, so I went looking for her podcast and the one that I came across first was an excerpt from her book about the lies we tell ourselves about starting tomorrow. It was exactly what I needed to remind me that there’s no time like the present.
One little win that I almost forgot about: I did some lunges and squats! My middle-little, (same 3 year old parroting curse words), turned me into a dinosaur with her magical wand. I started chasing her with my tiny T-Rex arms and walking funny while roaring after her. It just popped in my head to chase her while doing walking lunges- still with the teeny little arms. She thought I was hilarious and I got a mini workout!
It’s Sunday and a whole new day. I got this!!!
