Tough Day

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Today was "one of those" days. My almost 12 week old son did not have a good night last night. Normally he goes to sleep around 10 and then wakes up between 4 & 5 to eat and then we go back to sleep until 7. But last night he woke up at 1 and then at 4 and then at 6 and he did not go back to sleep. When I'm tired I don't make the best decisions on eating. Thank goodness I don't have a lot of junk food in the house, but I still went over my calorie count. The past couple of days I've been really hungry and I try my best to eat healthy. But since I'm still breast feeding I have to eat when I'm hungry. This morning he was really fussy but it was because he was so tired from not sleeping well last night. I put him down for his nap at 12 instead of working out I ate and took a nap too. But when my husband came home I did do Turbo Jam. I really wanted to go jogging, but by the time he got home from work it was getting too dark outside and I won't go if it's going to be too dark by the time I get done. Even though I had a rough day I did do my best to make the best choices and I did get some exercise done. For me that's progress...if this had been a few months ago I would have thrown this day away and said I'll start over tomorrow. In that I am proud of myself.

    Does your spark program take into consideration that your are nursing before it assigns a calorie target for you? I think it might be worthwhile to research if you might actually need more calories to be a successful nurser. I think from what you've written that you are doing a great job with your weightloss program even though you are also a nursing full-time mom. I am sure you'll get to the point you are aiming toward. Enjoy that baby--they grow up very quickly! Happy sparking!
