What A Way To Start Week 2....
Summer is in full swing, and so are the moods of my kids.
To put it in the simplest terms, today was exhausting. I didn’t make the best choice for breakfast, and my bad choice left me exhausted and moody the remainder of the day.
I ate one graham cracker, 2Tbs of peanut butter and a banana. I knew it wasn’t the best choice, but I didn’t think it was a terrible choice. After I plugged the food into my log on myfitnesspal.com, I had already exceeded the daily recommended amount of sugar with those three items. I was shocked.
Today and yesterday I have had a terrible time getting my blood sugar in a normal range. It has been dipping low and I am tired and hungry. It has made it more difficult to ward off the sweets. I have resisted for the most part, but not with out a challenge.
My seven month old boy is cutting four teeth right now. He has pretty much been miserable all day too. And my two year old has been her normal, energetic two year old self. Her normal wears me out. She is a sweet girl, but she has tantrums many times through the day and eventually it takes its toll on me, which today took place about 8am.
Despite my challenges with cranky kids. I have gotten my exercise in. Yesterday I got in an hour at the gym, doing strength training and cardio. Today I didn’t make it to the gym, but I did get in a 45 minute brisk walk with the kids in the stroller.
