My little ham
Holding onto Woody
As for my other goals, I followed through with my dinner plans for tonight for the family, but I didn't make it in time for me. I chose as best I could at work, eggplant parm. I still haven't had any soda, though I have craved it horribly. I did day one of the couch to 5K yesterday and tomorrow is day 2. I still haven't gone shopping for clothing for this time of year, but I really need something to at least cover my arms!
I haven't gotten to the Salvation Army yet. I really want to go and see what kind of goodies I can find and what I can do with them. I am hoping that it will spark my creative ideas and I'll do something truly creative instead of just following someone else's ideas.
As for my kids' diet, I am almost certain that Michael has an issue with dairy. We had pizza Saturday and then he had pizza last night. I guess I was just hoping that he could have it once in a while, so we trialed cheese. Needless to say it was a no go. Last night was the first night in a long time, like 2 months (probably the longest ever), that he woke in the middle of the night. Now to be fair, all I had to do is go in and put the blanket back on him, but that has never happened since we took him off dairy. Then this morning when I went to get him up, I noticed that there was blood on his sheets from him scratching at his arm. He has had a little issue with scratching his back, but I'm not sure if he just kept scratching at it because it was scabbing. I also noticed that he was snoring worse this morning, another thing that had gratly decreased since going dairy free. I am going to be very strict with what I give him. I don't now if I will feel comfortable giving him pre-packaged foods unless I can be sure that it is dairy free. I may need to look into seeing if there are other foods that may be contributing to this.
I am thinking that I really need to continue with watching all of our diets. I am thinking that losing the starchy carbs for all of us would be a positive move. I am hoping that with the right diet, we will all start to feel better. I need to continue to create sine it is what I truly love to do. I really want to make sure that I complete the couch to 5K and I actually want to run a 5K. I am thinking that I may run a 5K with another twin mom this summer. I really will feel good to complete the program and be able to run since this is a goal I have always had.
