We got back from our family vacation last night at 9:00 after being on the road for 12 hours. With a 2 year old. He did really well, considering his age, and lack of love for the car. He really wasn’t too bad until the last hour and forty five minutes. He just wanted to get up. It was really nice, we had my 19 year old niece, Alissa, riding with us. She sat in the back with him and was really attentive to his needs. As soon as we got home Henry ran like crazy around our back yard.
We had a really fun time on vacation at the Isle of Palms in South Carolina with Craig’s family. Henry went to the ocean for the first time, but only for a short time as he got his first bee sting! He recovered like a champ, though. We had lots of delicious food (too much), and if I had to guess I probably gained another 5 lbs these last two weeks in addition to the 4.8 I gained for my last weigh in. I am obviously not thrilled with it but I have to move forward. I have to acknowledge the hiccup and this school year I have to plan what I am going to do during the summer next year to make it possible to go to the gym, perhaps put a regular babysitter in the budget. Also, I have to do the same with the school year if my dad gets a job, as he is my sitter. I don’t know the solution, but I have to figure something out. I wish my gym has child care. That would be awesome. Or maybe I can work with a trainer for a little while to learn some workouts then just go to the gym and do my own workouts when Craig gets home from work. Anyway, I am brainstorming/rambling.
Craig is off today so I am planning to go to the gym for my two classes and weigh in. 😱
Here are some pictures from our vacation.
Well, I am looking forward to having a healthy day. I need lots of water! Lots and lots! I am so swollen from all of the salt and sitting in a car all day yesterday. My goal for myself is to have consistent losses for the rest of the year. No gains. 💪🏻💪🏻
I would also like to work on reducing my carb intake. But that is a work in progress. For now, I just need to get through today. 😽
I hope you all had a great summer!!
