Finding the Will to Work Out

I woke up with Twin Girl at 5 a.m. today. I fell asleep again 30 minutes later only to wake up to hear that Twin Boy woke up too. We all got in the big beed that's in their nursery, and I tried to go back to sleep. I'm not sure if that really happened. I remember having a strange dream about creatures that looked like the aliens from "District 9." Strange. Hmmm. Maybe I did sleep again. Anyway, yesterday I was really really bad. The funny thing was that when I started eating bad in the morning, it was as if my stomach wasn't big enough anymore to stuff my face like I used to. My stomach actually hurt, and I didn't even eat that much. I had 4 very thin corn tortillas with cheese inside, a handful of peanuts, and water. About 2 hours later, I did Jillian Michaels's "Boost Your Metabolism" workout for 50 minutes. That always kicks my butt, but I think she's right when she claims it can make you lose up to 5 pounds a week. I lost three during the first week I worked out with it! For lunch, I didn't get the chicken teriyaki that I said I would. Instead, I went to a Vietnamese restaurant and picked up a vermicelli salad (vermicelli, 3 small eggrolls, 1 oz. grilled pork, 4 grilled shrimp). It was delicious, and I was stuffed. Working out gave me an appetite, I guess. For dinner, my husband and I went for some sushi. Yeah, I was bad. But guess what! I'm over it. I'm eating good and clean until Valentine's Day. Usually, I eat what I want on Tuesdays, but I'll have to wait until February 14, so I can eat what I want on our special date night. Eleven days. Can I make it? I actually think it won't be a problem because as much as I looked forward to yesterday's feasting I was somewhat disappointed. I don't know why. Maybe it was because I didn't eat a piece of chocolate cake. LOL. Today my friend S. is coming over to work out with me. She's bringing one of the "Biggest Loser" workout DVD's. I'm not sure which one, but I'm sure it'll be a great workout. I'm too sleep-deprived and tired to work out, but I'll find the will to do it.

I hope you're having a happy and healthy day.

I just want to say how much I admire you for changing your life while your kids are so young. I don't think I could do what I am doing if I were sleep deprived and had real little ones at home. Keep up the good work...and congrats on the loss!
