I've started doing something this week that I thought I'd never do... counting calories. As I've already shared, my sister and I have started exercising more but for some strange reason, I seem to be gaining weight instead of losing it. In fact, my clothes are actually getting a little snug. It makes me want to cry, but I'm trusting everything that I've read that says I will start to see results soon. J has been exercising for a few months now and looks great, but he decided to count calories with me. It's nice doing this together. We are using a site called my fitness pal. We log everything we eat and it tells us how many calories we've had that day. If we exercise, we get extra calories. I was really surprised at first as to how many calories I actually eat. It was a lot more than I thought! As far as exercising goes, I love my gym! We (Stacy and I) have been going about 3x a week. It's not as often as I would like (I want to go 4x), but it's more than before! We've gone to a Pilate's class and tonight we are trying out Zumba! I'm also getting my free personal trainer session tomorrow. Yay!!! I was really nervous at first but now I'm more excited.
My house work has not been going as well as my diet and exercise. In fact, I had an unexpected visitor yesterday and was so embarrassed!!! But, she has kids and understands :) The house looks a lot better now. Not going to let THAT happen again! But I'm still way behind on where I'd like to be.
The kids are ok. Sick again, poor guys! T has some sort of infection. The dr took a strep test which came back negative. She said it's possible he had a false negative, or he has some other type of infection. Either way, he's on antibiotics and feels better. L has been such a fun little guy lately. His personality is really developing. He's much more adventurous and outgoing than I thought he'd be. After I got over the initial shock of have two climbers, destroyers, and crazy kids, I have been able to enjoy watching them play. We have lots of tears, broken toys/furniture/gates, and bruises, but they have a blast together.
Time to get dinner going. Tonight, we are eating Lasagna rolls. Mmm
