The first day of the Mamavation Challenge exercises kicked my but yesterday. Planks look so easy, but they aren’t. My body felt like jello when I was done. I woke up early this morning and decided to get as many of the 10,000 steps daily goal out of the way before the kids woke up. I was able to get 2,000 done. 8,000 left. I think I will get those done after I get the kids onto the school buses. It’s cold out, but the walking heats the body up quickly.
I learned that Lean Cuisine meals can be tricky. I bought a couple that had two servings in them. Luckily, I noticed that before I ate both servings last night. My daughter was happy about that, because that meant I was able to share it with her. I also learned that my first attempt at the low calorie, low fat oatmeal cookies was better than I thought. My son had munched out on them. I was also able to have a couple yesterday without going over my calorie and fat limit.
My husband was in a bad mood when he came home from work yesterday. The two weeks off for the holidays was too long. He was tired, and stressed out. I left him alone until he started to talk about it. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen him in that kind of mood. I hope today is better for him.
My daughter was still doing her homework when he got home last night. She didn’t finish it until 7:30. That’s way too long. It’s not that she had a lot of homework, she just wasn’t concentrated on it. She kept getting up to do something else. It’s so hard to get her focused on her homework. I hope she does better today, because she has church classes tonight.
Time to help the kids get ready for school.
Update: Did the other 8,000 steps. Took 1 hour and 15min, for a total of 1 hour 40 min for the full 10,000 steps.
