It's been one of those days. Little AJ has a stomach bug of sorts. She was up fussing several times in the night, and I assumed that it was her teeth bothering her but she started getting sick right after breakfast. Luckily, we've been about 4 hours puke free now and I got her to eat a little bit of plain bread and applesauce. She's zonked now, so hopefully we've seen the worst of it.
It just breaks your heart when your child isn't feeling well. Suddenly all rules go out the window. Yes, you may have your pacy all day long. Yes, you may watch cartoons all day long. Yes, I will snuggle you all day long. My goodness though, it didn't take me long to realize what a nervous eater I am though. Since the New Year I've been dieting (successfully, might I add. I've already lost 4 lbs.) and I have hardly had any cravings at all. The minute I got a moment to myself today thought I just started itching to binge on anything and everything. Yikes!! Don't worry though, the healthy Holly prevailed. I'm snacking on carrot sticks instead.
This week's question for my Day Zero Project - The 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind is:
Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
We also cut back in other areas, like eating out less often and getting a babysitter only every 4 or 5 months. We've come up with lots of date night ideas that we can do at home.
So yes, I am doing what I believe in. :) I hope you are too. Be true to your own heart!
