Life happens, and before you know it, several days pass. Already on Day Five – how did that happen?!
Day Two went well – a little tough on the squats, but still went well enough that I felt the need to do some extra arm exercises afterwards. Day Three, my brother and his girlfriend came to visit, so I had to find time to squeeze in my exercises. Additionally, the extra time on the planks and (sadly) the extra two pushups began to get tough. Lord help me – if 12 pushups are hard, how in the h-e-double hockey sticks am I going to 50 by the end of the month?!?!
Remember when I said this would be real? So, on Day Three, I totally pigged out on two hot dogs, a hamburger, and cake and ice cream that night. I also had the first beer that I’ve had since the end of last July – yes, almost a year ago! Day Four – didn’t even do it. We stayed up too late the night before, all slept in that morning, and then I decided to entertain my guests…..and go out to eat…..and sit on my butt. So today – Day Five – is supposed to be a rest day, but since I inadvertently (or quite intentionally, LOL) made yesterday a rest day, I will be doing my Day Four exercises today. Additionally, I need to make up a day of cardio, so I really need to do two doses of cardio someday this week. Will it be today? Who knows. I live nap-to-nap with little Bella, so it just depends on if we are having a good napping day or a poor napping day to whether or not I get things done. (And then I decided to take some time to actually get on my computer and hash out this post, so there goes some time I could have been using for exercise………)
I also need to get to the store. I am running out food – not only my healthy options, but really any options at all! So there’s that.
This is the real life of a mom. I know you other moms out there get it – I just have to say it out loud to remind myself sometimes, hahaha! And at the end of the day, I get to look at this precious face:

That’s fine to have our ‘set backs’??? …. You’re just keeping things real! Hope you get to the store soon, I have that on my never-ending list as well 🙂 After dusting, vacuuming, dishes, 879 loads of laundry, making beds and my much needed second cup of coffee – and we get paid in hugs, kisses and snuggle time.
Finally made it to the store yesterday – yay! 🙂
