DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 21 June 2013

I gained!!!!!! It's ok though. It's water weight. By the end of the weekend it will be gone. Seeing as I usually gain 3-5 lbs around this time of month I'm not worried. If it werent for the water weight I would have seen a lose. I know I would have. I'm doing good again. Could I do better? Yes.. but I'm not doing bad. I'm not depriving myself. I'm also not making motor boat noises in the middle of cakes. So.. YAY!

There are 12 days until I start the road trip to go see my family back home. This probably sounds bad but I'm really not looking forward to it. 10 hours in a car with 2 kids by myself? Then 3 days later spending 10 hours in a car with just little man and I? Does not sound fun! The expense, the stress, the time, the car sickness,... nope no part of it sounds fun. Love my family but I'm ok loving them from afar. On the plus side I get to see my mom's new house. She moved almost 2 yrs ago. lol I could even see my sisters house.. she moved 7 years ago.. I may actually see where they live and get ideas for xmas this year instead of the usual gift card. I could even meet my brothers girlfriend that he's had for 3 yrs now. Wow.. we're close. It's no wonder I wouldn't mind having another baby or two.. or 3.. heck I figure after a certain number it doesn't matter anymore they all blend together. Then I would have a big close family. Plus then I could get some good use out of all those hand me downs. lol I told hubby this last night. He looked at me like I was insane. I probably am.

This weekend I'm cleaning, working, getting things ready for the road trip, and working out. I will work out. I don't care if it's a yoga video, the eliptical, or running back and forth through a field. I will work out. I had a dream last night that I signed up for a marathon. I don't run. Heck.. I don't even jog. I am jealous of people that do. I never saw myself as that person though. Maybe my dreams are trying to tell me something. Heck.. maybe losing my boobs is a good thing. I could jog and not put an eye out.

At yesterdays graduation my daughter got a certificate for improving on her 20 minute run. Every friday the kids got the chance to run and try to improve on their distance. She did this every friday. It might be something she and I can do together. It would encourage her to stay fit and work towards a goal and it would motivate me to not letting my 9 yr old show me up. lol

Wow, 20 minutes is a big difference, good for her! You should do it with her, it will be a nice mother daughter bonding activity; and you'll both be healthier and more active! I see no downside to this. :D

Your next weigh in will be better after that water weight is gone. Good luck with the trip!! I would lose my mind. Just going a few hours away to see family, and having my hubby with me, about made me lose it. I hope you do have fun while you're there. It will be nice to see your family. Get that workout done this weekend!! :)

I never saw myself as a runner either, but I am getting better at it. I love to read your journals. I could be doing better as well, but not doing as bad as I would have in the past. Good luck on the long drive with kids and try to enjoy the time with family. :)

Put me in a car with two kids for 10 hours and one of us would be drinking cherry vodka or Benadryl. And now we know why *I* never had children. Take care!
