15 September 2014

Do you think exhaustion or stress causes you to be tempted to make giant chocolate cakes.. or a pan of chocolate no bake cookies.. or brownies batter... or chocolate fudge then daydream about locking yourself in the bedroom with one of the above items and refuse to share with anyone? Whatever the reason is it appears to be contagious. Maybe it's because it's in the low 60's outside and we're all attempting to put on weight for the winter.. there has to be some reason for it. It couldn't possibly be because chocolate and sugar are a yummy combination. I'm not sure.. I think my daughter growled at me last night when she found out I ate the last cookie though. Oops.. It was for the baby :D That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I figured since things were getting out of control I would attempt to see how many days I could go without sugar. I decided this at 11:45 last night. It lasted until 5:48 this morning. Technically I was awake for half of that.. sure I was in a zombie stupor and sure I also decided I should repaint the upstairs.. *snort* but um yeah.. I think I do my best thinking then. Tomorrow I will attempt again. By then the pan of cookie bars I made should be gone. The farm hand is back tonight and he caught the sugar bug right before he left.. he also left after consuming half my box of donuts. *twitch* The only good part is by everyone wanting sweets we have to compete for them. Throw in a couple of those giant q-tip sticks and some raised platforms and we could actually burn off the sweets before we consume them. Maybe.. I'm going to go back to talking to baby Squirt and drooling.

So far baby squirt is the only one that listens to me and doesn't raid my sugar stash. I think the others have sensed the weakened state of mom with baby brain and they're planning their attack now. This morning the toddler plotted against me by climbing into the baby carrier. Took me at least a minute to try and figure out how Squirt gained 30 lbs. Then it took me 29 minutes to convince little man he no longer fit in a baby carrier. Sure.. he fit a thigh in but once you pick it up he just flipped right out at which point it was a toddler catapult. I've now given up using the baby carrier. Who knows how long it would have taken me to convince little man that toddler catapults are not recommended for safety reasons. *drool*

Houston we have a problem.. I'm living in yoga pants and nursing tanks and I LOVE it. I'm still wondering why I ever wore slacks.. or dress shirts.. or shoes. Shoes are over rated. Especially ones with heels that make clicky noises. I may never wear anything but cotton again. Sure work may frown upon this when I return to work but well.. they're so comfy!!! So yes.. I'm slowly becoming that woman who goes to walmart in her pjs. I am getting there by kidding myself and saying I bought the yoga pants in the workout section so technically.. I'm going to walmart in my workout gear. Yup.. uh huh.. that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Yup yup.

I'm slowly getting back into being active. Barn chores are resuming although I noticed today I'm sore after cleaning barn last night. Shoveling poop appears to be a full body workout. Arms, legs, abs, uterus. Sneezing has become a new found adventure. Or maybe that's because of the kegals. It's funny they tell you to start those right away but don't workout for 6 weeks? How does that make sense? Exercise the one part of your body that has just been through a traumatic event but avoid planks??? Pfft. If I can get little man down for a nap and squirt relatively happy in a swing I'm going to attempt the elliptical today. Just for kicks and giggles.. to see if I scream obscenities after several seconds.. and well because I need the stress relief. Apparently the other version of stress relief is off the table to. But kegals?? Oh kegals are great! Do those 3 times a day!

I haven't been around lately because well I'm tired and I'm attempting to mold the recliner to the shape of my butt when I'm not chasing little man or confirming that he is still my little man. We appear to either have some jealousy or fear that mom will disappear for a couple days again. I'm not sure which. All I know is the longest I have slept in a stretch is 2 hours. It's at this point that either squirt or little man are up... and usually crying. I wonder which burns more calories going to the gym or juggling a new born and a toddler. Right now I'm guessing the second one.

I have realized some very important things in my up all night lack of sleep clarity. 1 I could probably shave hubby bald and he would never wake up or stop snoring. 2 people who are up late must suffer from constipation I swear every other commercial is a medication, something to swirl around in a glass of water or a food promising regularity. I'm beginning to fear for my regularity this is obviously a serious issue with us up all nighters! 3 jillian michaels is attempting to make millions from an untapped source. The recliner/couch butt imprint people who don't sleep. I hate to tell her this but watching chiseled people jump around or workout on her new guaranteed to burn more calories than any other machine equipment! Well um they just make me snuggle my butt more firmly in place and think nasty names better left untyped. Now that I've filled you in on the plights that affect up all nighters you can consider yourself more informed and I'm going to attempt 30 minutes of sleep to see if constipation is only an early night issue or do the 3 AMers suffer too?!?!?

You realize you're sadistic when you weigh in and take pictures after giving birth a week ago. I thought I would post the picture but then well.... I saw them. Lol I did resist the urge to immediately delete them so maybe I will post them after I've made some progress. And maybe by then I can deny they are of me and people will believe me. I can hope right?

You would think the pictures would scare me away from the pumpkin spice latte and Burger King lunch but between no sleep and a drs apt and shopping I think I temporarily lost my sanity. Plus the doctors compliment on my ability to produce milk went straight to my head. Apparently I would make an excellent cow. I not only make a lot of milk I apparently have a high butter content. Lol she was amazed squirt gained back his birth weight plus a pound in a week. Personally I think their scale was off but hey I will take compliments where I can. Even if they are about breast milk and they start a whole conversation about me being a prized cow between hubby and the farm hand. I may need sleep now I think I've lost it.
