Today has been productive. The kids and I have been going upstairs to do "chores" after breakfast each morning. I find this works really well for us! It's a lot easier to have a set time to go make our beds. T has started sleeping on top of his covers so he doesn't have to do it the next morning. Silly, smart boy! He loves his new chore chart. Getting those smily faces is a huge motivation for him. I've been using my grown up version of a chore chart today, too. I like crossing off too :) So far today, I've made my bed, run and emptied the dish washer, a load of laundry (actually, it's in the dryer. I still need to fold and put away...about 4 loads...), the diapers, and exercised. All that's left is to wipe down my kitchen, sweep, clear the clutter (toys, mostly) and go to Awana at church tonight!
J and I have started encouraging each other to eat better and drink more water. Throughout the day, we've sent texts sharing what we've had. Knowing that he planned to keep me accountable has helped me not to snack as much as I usually do (although, I'm not that much of a snacker. We only have so many gf snacks here). I put a little section on my daily plan sheet for my cross off how many cups of water I've had during the day. It's 3 pm and so far, I've had 5 cups. Working on #6 now. For exercise, my wonderful sister came over and did Pilates with me. I didn't think it would be THAT challenging, but I was wrong. My legs are still burning! My abs are already feeling tight too.
L seems to be coming down with something. His little voice is hoarse. Poor guy! He's been coughing, too. Not much, but enough. Last night he had a ton of congestion in his chest, and he's starting to feel warm. He doesn't have a high fever or anything, but he's warmer than usual. We just can't stay healthy for more than a week or two at a time. This whole cold and flu stuff is really getting old!
Now that I've written about how productive I've been, it's time to get busy again. But first, a little note from my Little L:
