I took down my 'plan'. In three weeks I gained almost two pounds.
That's just annoying.
Of course, I haven't really done anything that would potentially cause weight loss.
I've been eating too much. Drinking too much. Not exercising at all even though I had 'a plan'. And I'm 'a planner'. Just crap.
I have zero time.
I don't know when I'm supposed to do this.
I get up at 5:15 in the morning. I get straight into the shower.
At 6 I get Elle up.
At 6:30 I get Ali up.
At 7:15 I'm packing everyone up and getting out the door by 7:25.
(BTW - I do feel extremely proud of myself that I have managed to adjust the morning schedule so that we're leaving on time)
I leave work at 4:50.
I pick up the girls at 5.
I get home at 5:30.
I get in the door, let Big M out. Get Ali her water and snack then I change out of work clothes.
It's now 5:50.
Get Ali's dinner ready.
My husband comes home. Walks Big M and then goes for a run.
At 6:20 Elle goes down for a nap.
At 6:30 I feed Ali and frequently myself too.
At 7:15 after Ali finishes eating (yes 45 minutes is typical for her) I take her upstairs to brush her teeth and change into her pj's.
at 7:20 my husband is home from his run and comes up to join us for story time.
7:30 we read two books.
7:50 Ali goes to bed.
7:55 I go down stairs to make a bottle
8:00 I get Elle up and feed her. She's awake until about 9:00, sometimes she'll go down a little earlier than that. That's my one time of day that I actually get to play with her and pay attention to her without Ali there too.
9:00 put Elle down for the night and sit down with my husband for 20 minutes.
9:20 we go to bed.
That's my whole day. All of it. It doesn't stop. I get 20 minutes in the evening and 45 minutes in the morning without kids. Where in there am I supposed to exercise?
It is so frustrating.
