This is going to be a real quick one....the baby is occupied with her crib mobile for a few minutes, but I'm not sure for how long!
The baby's cold/virus/eye infection condition worsened this week, and it was really tough. Needless to say, she needs a lot more love and affection right now.:-)
Exercise has been non-existent this week. I planned to go to the gym one night (I even got changed, and got my runners on), but I was too exhausted after a sleepless night with the baby.
However, things have been relatively good on the eating front. The only thing I can attribute that to, is the fact that there is zero junk in my house. And that it's INSANELY cold outside, so I haven't been able to venture outside on any chocolate runs! Now, I'm not saying that my eating was PERFECT by any means - but it was definitely a lot better than last week. So there's a start.
I'm really struggling with trying to find "me" time right now, with being a new mom. Aside from exercising, some time to read, or catch up with friends on the phone....I guess that will come in time. In pursuit of trying to help myself with this, I have booked a Carribean body wrap/massage at the Aveda salon for tomorrow!!!! I am soooo excited, and can't wait. The salon is just across the street from where I live, so I'll only be gone for 2 hours tops. But it's MY time. It'll be my first break from the baby, so I'm a bit nervous that I'll experience separation anxiety or something, but I'm sure it will be fine. The hubby is going to look after her. So, I'm looking VERY forward to that.
I haven't been so great on the water front...I really should be drinking more. On that note, I'm going to pour myself a glass.
I plan on going to the gym tonight, and the rest of this weekend. It'll be easier since my husband is home...and I'm actually looking forward to it.
And then it's the first 27lbs/27 weeks weigh-in on Monday morning. I'll be SO discouraged if I haven't managed to meet my first week's goal.
Baby's stirring....I'm running!
