It continues

This is the second week of C’s swim lessons. The weird thing is, she does great in friends pools, but she hates the lessons! She clings to me for dear life in the pool and cries the majority of the lesson. They are trying to teach her to kick and scoop and blow bubbles, but she just wants out. I thought by the end of the first week she would be better acclimated and like it more, but every day has been a struggle. We were in a friends pool over the weekend and she was excited to practice blowing bubbles right away when she got in! Not sure why she dislikes the community pool so much. I’ve even gone to giving her a sucker at the end of her lesson to give her a positive reward. Lessons go through this thursday, then we move on to gymnastics and baby ballet a few weeks later.

My low cal, low carb approach continues this week. It’s tough not to splurge over the weekend, especially when ben is still taking advantage of his cheat day on saturday. So we had a few carby items on saturday. Then on sunday, C and I made some homemade ice cream… which C LOVED. As did I! I had a small amount from C’s bowl. I was surprised when I entered the recipe in to myfitnesspal.com later and, despite bring made with real sugar, discovered that it was only 8 carbs per serving. Not terrible! Not the healthiest of carb choices, but still not too bad for a treat!

I’ve been avoiding the scale for a few days past cheat days, so I’m not sure where I am overall, but my clothes are fitting better than they have in a long time and I’ve pulled a few things from my pre-pregnancy box.

I’m loving having an exercise bike in our room. It makes getting a work out in so easy! Logging my daily exercise has helped motivate me to do more of it, which is awesome. It’s easy to get discouraged by set backs, so I’m enjoying the little things that are motivating me to stick with it.

Bedtime now. Hoping for good numbers on the scale tomorrow. Good night!
