I knew today was going to be rough around the edges the minute Isaac came down the stairs for breakfast. I have sadly been proven correct all day long.

I left about 8:45 for my appointment with the Nutritionist and my levels showed what I had been feeling...something off. So the plan is to do a partial "fat load" day (healthy fats) and then hit the restricted eating plan hard again tomorrow. I am also going to use my doTerra liver detox oils/pills and see if we can clean things up. This all began when we ate at Arby's on Thursday. The scale went up 2 lb. the following morning and I was able to get that right back off, but that signals something is up when the scale won't even budge 1/2 an ounce for days after. Not sure what they put in their turkey wrap, but I can tell you I won't be eating there again! Obviously something does not agree with me!

Next stop was the auto parts store as the hubby needed me to drop off the rear rotors to the van to have them turned and to pick up brake pads and a few other things. Thankfully they were able to clean the rotors up and we didn't need new ones.

Once home I had hoped math & grammar would be completed or close to it by my son, but it was not meant to be. Maegann told me about his attitude and I could see his attitude by the amount of red marks I put on his papers. This is where I struggle with the pediatric behavioral specialist.... he says "he can't help it when this happens" but I see a choice being made. He did not want to bother with school today and it was very obvious. When he doesn't mind sitting down to do the work his papers are awesome. Same subjects. Same type of problems. Anyway....we plugged along and got through it along with him taking 3 laps around the loop in the subdivision. Probably 1/4 mile each loop.

After lunch he was a happy camper. Consumed one of his favorites..tacos...and he had time to play and do what he wanted (other than drawing as I took his Sonic cartoons and drawing pad away as a consequence). He was all smiles and fun until Kenzie arrived to take him to physical therapy. The attitude just switched and unfortunately he made it one of those brutal, and less fun, sessions with her today. His comment to me when I asked him why he chose to be so disrespectful was, "I wasn't. I made one mistake." He was and it was more than one "mistake." Ugh! He only has Kenzie until the 13th and then he switches to the new worker. She is a personal trainer and cheer coach. We'll sure miss Kenzie though!

While he was at physical therapy Maegann and I went to Savers (thrift store) so she could find some fall tops before everything was picked over by the Labor Day sale. She found some cute things!

Only thing I need to do tonight is my bible study and more coloring. Maegann bought me an early birthday gift as I'd told her about my love of coloring and that they now had "grown up" books. The gift was a set of 48 colored pencils and a coloring book of prism designs. Here's the one I started last night.

My birthday... on Saturday. Will be fun to see what they come up with for a gift as I've given them several options and some not too cheap! LOL My hope is the MP3 player for the gym. Would be nice to have my Christian rock while working on core and weights.

Tomorrow.... laundry, school, Maegann's counseling, lunch out with the kids and bible study.

    I think coloring is a very relaxing thing to do when we're stressed, and it sure has less calories than food! Glad things are going well with the nutritionist.

    I love your design. I have thought about coloring, too. I'll have to just do it.

    I know that sometimes I would send a kid outside to run around the house a certain number of times.

    I need a coloring book. I've pinned them on Pinterest but never got around to buying one. I tried printing some at home, but the ink smeared--no fun! I used to sometimes do my own drawings, but haven't been in the mood for a long time. I need to remember that running thing--I send mine outside but with no direction.
