I started on a Tuesday…I was suppose to start on Monday only I couldn’t…that is, I didn’t…I had all intentions of starting on Monday, you know…getting healthy, eating right, exercising. I had a good plan too! Only, as usual I forgot that a tasks that would have previously taken me 5 minutes to complete now takes me about 2 hours; I still love motherhood though! I wouldn’t want it any other way! Nevertheless, I was convinced I would meal prep over the weekend and be ready to go for the week!
On Saturday we celebrated Sunshine’s birthday, she had a pool party!! She and I met four years ago; we both share what some may consider a bit of a smartass trait, we’re perfectly fine with laughing at ourselves and each other and we get each others somewhat twisted sense of humor! It’s beautiful how people come into our lives at just the right time. As expected her party was lots of fun and the boys had a blast; especially Elias who is much more confident in the pool with his floaties this summer…Tommy is still working on this. We spent all afternoon well into the evening celebrating, by the time we got home the boys were out and so was I. I thought about meal prepping but I figured I still had Sunday!
I planned on waking up early on Sunday and meal prepping before we headed out to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. I told my Mom I’d be there by 11 to help set up. Incidentally, I did wake up early, Elias climbed on me and excitedly pointed out the very bright window towards the Sun and said “it’s time to play the sun is out…you see!!” How could I resist his excitement, those beautiful eyes, that gorgeous smile, so full of energy, so happy, so sweet! I could tell his next move depended on my response! He had such a simple request…to play, to spend time with ME! How lucky am I!!! It still baffles me that these two perfectly adorable sweet boys are mine, they call me Mami and I get to call them my boys, my babies, my kiddos! Right now I’m their whole entire world! It’s a love I’ve never known before, a feeling that makes me quiver with joy! How I wish it could stay like this forever!!! I won’t fuck this up! Of course I couldn’t deny his simple request and we played Paw Patrol for a good while.
It was still early and I had time. I was going to start juicing but then I noticed the pile of dishes, oops sorry, I was suppose to wash those on Saturday. I also remembered I was supposed to take a potato salad to my Dad’s party so I started on that instead. I figured I’d do the salad, wash the dishes and then meal prep and juice. But…well you get the idea, it didn’t happen…a small part of me was still hopeful it’d happened Sunday night after the party… I thought if I got home early enough…I didn’t! But that’s okay!! I’m so grateful and feel incredibly blessed to have celebrated another birthday with my Dad!! He’s the BEST, he has always worked extremely hard for his family! My mom always said he would sacrifice buying underwear for himself so his kids could have whatever they needed! I’m so proud of him and thankful for all the sacrifices he and my mom made for us!
Monday came along and I didn’t do great with the whole eating better situation. I didn’t eat terrible but I could have definitely made better choices…I probably should have skipped the pizza and soda at Chuck E Cheese! The goal is to lose 90 pounds…wowsers! Just writing it seems impossible! I have to stop procrastinating. Usually if I don’t meal prep over the weekend I kinda just shrug my shoulders and say to myself…”I’ll do it next weekend for sure”…because well it always starts on a Monday for some reason…isn’t that when it suppose to start?
The things is I don’t want to wait again. I NEED to get it together, I WANT to get it together, I HAVE to push myself… for my health, for my future for my kids! It was getting late so I bought a few salads for the work week and I made my juices on Monday night! I went to bed at almost 11:30… this is waaaaaaaay past my bedtime, I prefer going to bed at 8 or 9! But it was well worth it because I was able to start on Tuesday.
Until next time…Much Love!!!
