It’s hard to remember an Easter this beautiful in the past several years. A perfect day.
Little Ruby got to come home on Thursday! It just so happened that Mark had to go on a photo shoot Thurs-Sunday so Ali needed extra help. I cleaned for her and helped with Ruby Friday night. My mom was able to sleepover and then take Siri and Jane all of Friday and Saturday morning, so that was really helpful for Ali. I slept over last night to help with the girls. Newborns can be hard and very unpredictable…add in her tumor and having to extra care for her makes Ali tired. She is AMAZING. She wouldn’t have it any other way though. She has her whole family at home now!
We were able to get out on our bikes on Saturday. Dan went with Sam in the morning. We pushed him too much, but he wanted to go. He was asking for a nap at Noon (he usually goes down about 1pm). He was tired. He took a good nap and was refreshed…but only for a bit.
He was tired and ready for bed before 7pm. He was having so much fun at the skills park and I kept asking him to take a break since I knew he hadn’t eaten much all day and was just going slower than normal. Poor little guy and his cold. He’s had the runs yesterday and seems off today, so we’ll see what happens…
And this Monday morning I’m down 4lbs. wOOt!! (166.5 ) I tracked my calorie intake Mon-Fri and even that was stressing me out ;). I used FitDay to keep track. I also worked out quite a bit, as I was feeling really good and had tons of energy…might as well get it out exercising and playing all day with Sam!
I DO NOT wear stripes, as I’ve always thought that I look huge in them. I went out of my comfort zone and wore this shirt yesterday. The color is happy and I didn’t feel self conscious like I usually do. What a good feeling, it’s freeing. I have no idea what next week will bring, but I do know that I’m feeling healthier and happier these days and I like it. Still have more to lose, but days like this boost my attitude and really up my motivation!
