Well it was a long week but the weekend made it all better.
My son was still sick this week. Skipping school, sleepless nights and just plain hard on me and him. We spend mothers day just relaxing and watching tv. My son gets sick and he wants to snuggle with me. And of course, I got sick too.
I was so sick on Monday that I had to come back from work. It was good to sleep and get some rest, but with Nicolas still sick, inreally did not have a break.
Pretty much we all got sick at home. I was really linking forward for my time in Vegas. I did have a good time. But being sick took some o the fun away. I really did not walk that much, but I did not eat or drink too much either, so that helps (I hope)
Monday is my birthday. I have not been really exited about this bday as I am usually are. Not sure if I am missing my family in Colombia or it is just because i have been sick. I guess that I will have a small dinner with hubby and Nicolas.
I really want to start walking more. Inhale been lacking motivation. But I feel ready now. So we will see next week.
It has been a long week. My son has been sick. One day sick one day better, going to school, picking him early because he is sick, you know the drill.
I am tired. Sleep deprived too.
I did my #2weekchallenge and was good with food, but since I am stressed out did not want to get on the scale. I do not want to worry about another thing right now. I am doing my part and I feel the clothes loose so I am happy for that.
I feel I am taking into too much and I need to slow down. We have a girls trip to Vegas next weekend and all I want is to be able to rest. I am sure all the walking will help me but I do need that beauty sleep the talk so much about.
Taking it one day at the time, and being thankful for the support.
Yesterday I had an awesome day. I drove to Los Angeles to meet a twitter friend.
With technology we are making virtual friendships with people all over the world. However when those friends live near you, why not take the time to meet them in person?
Natalia (@comiendoenla) and I (and my little one) met at a local LA restaurant. The Alcove. It is a cute cafe with awesome food. My son ordered the meatlovers omelette, I ordered the smoked salmon omelette and Natalia had the Huevos rancheros.
The plates were so big that we all took some home, but besides great food the highlight of the day was meeting Natalia.
We are both from Colombia now living here and married to Americans. It felt so good to have a conversation in Spanish and talk about food and culture.
I am definitely going to cultivate this friendship. Next time hopefully I get to meet her sister a well.
It would be great to meet more twitter friends from Colombia as well from other latin american countries, so if you read this and want to meet do not be shy and contact me!
Well, I guess I needed to do this long time ago, but as you all know it is easier to hide and try to do things alone.
I have been doing the awesome #2weekchallenges with @mrbookieboo, but those are not enough I have realized that I do need to feedback and that the sistahood would love me even if I gain weight or I do not exercise. But I need more than that. I need more than the love I need the support, good words, bad words or anything you can give me to motivate me to get back on track.
So here I am, back in the post, maybe not as active on twitter just because I have a harder time to do it (you know work is kinds important to pay for the bills...)
So I have started a new nutrition plan. Is not really atkins, but I am just not eating a lot of carbs. I had the worst cravings first but I am getting used to it. I just know that if I eat one slice of bread, I will go for that second one, so I am not having the first one to avoid temptation. At least until I learn to deal with my emotional eating a little bit better.
I will try to give comment love as much as my schedule allow me, so be patient.
Thanks for reading...
