I am generally the stereotypical mom/teacher whose immune system is strong and doesn’t have time to be sick. 😉 Well, some crud came and hit the whole family hard this week. During the worst day for all of us, I was scheduled to take dinner to a friend, which I loved doing (no complaints). But after teaching sick kiddos all day, cooking their dinner, and delivering it, I was spent and so were they. Again, not complaining, this is just leading up to my mommy failure. It was just about six on our way home and I was debating dinner for us. My mind, nose and head were clogged and so we pulled into the grocery store where I proceeded to buy packaged sodium. For those of you who know me, this is not my style, but sometimes something has to give. And I felt extremely guilty laying down the made for kid tv dinners, as well as donuts for the next morning. But, such is life. And the kids love donuts!!! 🙂
When I run on the elliptical in the morning I like to watch something to keep my mind off running. 😉 It is hard to find new things all the time, but I recently chose the movie Unconditional. I really like it! I love that one of the main characters is based on the life of a real life person. This man changed the lives of so many kids. I love kids! So when a person puts his/her comforts on the line to change the lives of our future…well, it is a winning story for me and I highly recommend that you watch it!
Speaking of the elliptical…kind of…I was so good eating healthy since the summer and even through Christmas and New Years, but I got burned out of eating healthy and took a brief hiatus. Amazing how all that progress can go away so quickly. 😦 Therefore… I am back to healthy starting today. I had a healthy breakfast and a great run on the elliptical this morning. I feel good and am actually ready to get back into the healthy routine. As yummy as being unhealthy can be, my body really doesn’t feel good when I am unhealthy. So I am ready to feel good again. 🙂
