So I had a really bad weekend. I mean I was really bad. I took a gym break Fri, Sat, & Sun due to a huge blister which I got because I have been pushing myself too hard at the gym. I’ve been walking 90 minutes a day and my body found a way to tell me to calm down. So I didn’t got to the gym for 3 days but, that’s not all, I also ate terribly. I guess I just got burnt out completely and then cracked. I’m back on the wagon as of today though. I am going to take it easier on myself. For instance, today I was busy and running around and I allowed myself to go to Dunkin Donuts. I got myself a small regular coffee and a veggie egg white wrap. Last week there is no way I would have done that because it would have meant my streak would have ended even though my swearing off Dunks and Starbucks was about the calorie intake from what I was getting (lattes and donuts and pastries). Today I was able to say, “I don’t have time to eat at home so I’m going to Dunks but, not for a latte or donuts and that’s OK, it is not going to kill me.”
The reason I didn’t have time is because I was babysitting my nephews today. It was eventful. I was there for about a half hour when my 10 month old nephew hurt himself. He was playing with this pillow on the floor, laying on it and crawling over it and he was having a grand ol’ time. He had climbed over it about 3 times and the 3rd time he lost his balance and landed face first on the floor. I mean his face was only like 8 inches off the floor at the time but, the impact was enough that when I picked him up he had blood coming from his mouth. I was so worried about his teeth but, luckily he just cut his lip. He was so upset, understandably but, I cleaned him up and gave him a nice cold bottle to help with the pain. He calmed down and cheered up quickly. A kid getting hurt on your watch is like the babysitter’s worst nightmare. I felt awful.
I think because I spent time doting on the little one after the injury my nearly 3 year old nephew got a little jealous and he decided he would act out to get my attention. (Just to be clear my Sister and Sister-in-law are fabulous mothers so if you have never had 2 or 3 year old please keep in mind that this is all perfectly normal behavior for a kid his age.) He began taking toys from his brother, he was not being gentle with his brother, and then the last straw I was giving an ice pack to the baby and he ripped it out of my hands and would not give it back. I put him in time out and he just wouldn’t stay. He was like a little wild man he jumped out of the chair ran across the table and the couch and all around the house. He kept chewing on the ice pack and I tried to take it away at which point I realized he’d punctured it. It was made for babies and is made of non toxic materials but, I don’t think the stuff inside is great for him either. He was just a crazy boy.
When my Sister got home from work she made him apologize. He then later that night said to her on his own, “I’ll be a good boy for Auntie tomorrow.” Aww. I just love him so much. I mean yeah yesterday was crazy but, he’s still adorable. I had to go to the grocery store on my way home from my Sister’s house and then I went home and starting typing this but, got distracted by the Game of Thrones theme song. My daughter and her friend were watching and I just couldn’t resist joining them. I had to wear my best poker face since I’d already seen the episodes we watched and they hadn’t. So I got to bed late again which didn’t bode well for Tuesday morning and Tuesday is a busy day. Wish me luck! I hope this post finds you well or on your way to wellness.
