Being sick when you have three kids who are also sick, well that's just damn near impossible. I can't be sick because I have to take care of my kids. Thank God for my husband; I don't know how I would've survived this last week without him (and here is where I tip my hat to all the single moms).
Apparently a plague of sorts struck our house. Over the last week and a half, we've had 1 ear infection, 3 colds, 4 cases of pink eye, 1 bladder infection, an infant with congestion, and Luis- he's stayed perfectly healthy (and here is where I thank his mom for being an extended breastfeeder). We'll all survive, but it's been a trying week. I'm extra tired, I lost my voice, my throat is still super sore. Seeing my kids sick hurts my heart. I cried when I found out Kadence had an ear infection, even though they are easy to treat and she hardly gets them, it still broke my heart to know she was likely in pain before we brought her to the doctor. Then Gavin, seeing him first thing in the morning with his eyes glued shut from all the eye goop...so sad, and kinda cute. And my teeny baby, first chest congestion then pink eye. He's brand new, he shouldn't have these problems! The good news is everyone is on the mend, and we should all be back to normal by next week.
Needless to say I did not stay on weight watchers this week. Truth be told, I only attempted to count points one or two days. I'm writing this week off, and just hoping I didn't gain anything. My diet was mostly comprised of bullion cubes and ice cream, so we'll see tomorrow.
I wish I was closer to my goal weight. I have to go back to work soon, so I am going shopping tomorrow for new work clothes. I want to be excited about going shopping, but I'm not. I'm just trying to encourage myself to embrace my size and not let the fact that I'm overweight stop me from buying cute things. This is just my transition wardrobe. I will go on another shopping spree when I reach my goal weight (hey, more motivation to lose!)
