A little bit of ramble

I remember hearing a story about a mom who was is such a hurry that she fed her kids on the go. On this particular day she put some soup in a zip*lock bag, cut a small snip in the corner and had her child drink the soup while in the car (going to some sporting event or dance class, I'm sure). I always thought that was terrible and vowed never to be "that" mom or to be in that much of a hurry. Boy, did I eat my words. I seem to be doing that alot lately.....you know, eating my words. It seems to be the norm for me.


Yesterday was a crazy, crazy day. Soup was not involved. There was no snipping of a zip*lock. Now, there was a zip*lock but instead of soup it was filled with chicken nuggets. I am a bad mom. After I picked Macy up from school we ran like crazy until it was time to get Reid from practice. I realized there would be no time to eat between picking him up and church. So, what's a Mom to do? Yep. Quickly cook some nuggets, pack up the nuggets in a zippy, pack up some chips and grab a Dr. Pep and run out the door. Sounds like such a nice and healthy dinner for my growing teenager, right? Well, he thought it was cool. Me, I was "that" mom!



So, there we go driving to church with the lights on in the car. Which I HATE because I can't see a darn tootin' thing while driving. Reid was gobbling down his brown bag dinner and Macy was in the back seat with her light on doing her homework. I swear. I'm sure we looked quite hilarious.



Which brings me to my next point. I think one of my New Years Resolutions should have been to slow down a bit. Learn to say no. Learn to take care of me and my family better and not to eat in the car so much. Is it too late to add on to my list? ha!



Which brings me to my next point. I have been detoxing my body since November and have really trying to heal my body from the inside out. I have not had coffee since the beginning of November and let me tell you. I.miss.it. I really do. Especially with all this cold weather. I have really wanted to snuggle up with a cup of coffee and sit by the fire. But, now only herbal tea will do. I have been eating alot of beans, brown rice, veggies, fruit, vitamins and everything whole wheat. It has been great. I feel great. I have lost a little weight but still struggling and continuing with my journey. It has been hard but hoping it will pay off in the long run. 2010 is my year to be thin. Hey, that rhymed. Well, there you have it....that's my new motto! :)



Which brings me to my next point. Yesterday, I had an appointment with a personal trainer and she kicked my tail!! I am so sore today I can barely walk. I thought I was in better shape than that. Guess not. Well, I am well on my way.....




Peace out........

Great post~I loved it. I, too, was a mom on the go. Remember? We ate breakfast cereal in a glass of milk on the way to school. I bet there is still a curdles glass under the seat of the old family truckster.... We ate many meals in the car on the way to games, practices, church. Those were the busy days. Those were great days. You are NOT a bad MOM. Don't ever think that. These are the days you will remember forever and they will too. You are a MOM who gives up her time to do things for and with them. Hey, you didn't turn out half bad...in fact, I think you are pretty close to perfect. LOVE YOU.
