I will admit that I had a rough weekend. Food, water, exorcise and attitude were all off. I ate pizza, chocolate, ice cream... I missed my Sunday Yoga class... and worst of all, I didn't care. At least not until this morning. I had the morning guilt trip... and I hate that. There was a rock in the pit of my stomach and I just kept thinking WHY?? Why would I ruin a whole week of working hard with one day of pure stupidity?
Well, I cant go back in time and change what I did.. so I have to just forgive myself. Slap my hand and say 'NO'... and tell myself to never do that again! Today is a new day.. a fresh start. I made up my Yoga class first thing this morning. This afternoon I will do my Legs & Back routine and then go to Belly Dancing class. There will be no lack of exorcise today. What I need to focus on is my food. I had a Cliff bar this morning after Yoga class and four glasses of water. I need to drink 4 more glasses before lunch.. which will be a tuna salad. NOW.. if I can just keep myself out of the kitchen until then!

Hanlie over at FertileHealthy sent me 5 questions to answer...here they are!
1. Does motherhood live up to the expectations you had before becoming
To be honest, I never dreamed of becoming a mother. I was more interested in traveling, working, drinking, partying. Kids were never in my mind. It was when I suddenly found myself pregnant that I had to actually sit down and face it. I didn't get a chance to worry about being a mother too much while I was pregnant. I was trying to work things out with the Daddy... I suffered severe All-Day-Long sickness and also tried to hold down a job. When I was 5 months pregnant I moved in with Daddy. That is when I finally got the chance to soak it all in. I was happy, in love and it was all falling in place.
The whole 'motherhood' did not hit me until the morning that I gave birth to a beautiful little girl. That is when reality hit me square in the face and I fell head over heels in love with her. She was, and is, a blessing in my life. Everyday brings a new challenge, a new 'moment' where you just have to stop and say thank you!
Having two girls now is double the blessing... and double the trouble....but I wouldn't change a thing!
2. How romantic are you?
I have a favorite memory. To me it was the most romantic thing Hubby ever did. I was standing at the stove making dinner. The girls were running around the living room listening to the radio. An old country song came on and before I new what was going on Hubby had swung me around and started dancing with me. At this point he and I had been married for 2 years... AND I HAD NO IDEA HE COULD DANCE!!!! He twirled me and rocked me... and I was in love again!
3. What is your biggest dream for the future?
There are a million things that I could answer here...but the biggest would be to see my girls grow up into smart young women. The future is a scary place now...I fear for them and what they might have to face...I just pray that I will give them what they need to survive it!
4. If you could have any vacation, with cost and time not an issue,
what would it be?
Hubby and I never had a honeymoon... so I would want to take him (and the girls) to Ireland. Stay in a small cottage by the sea...and lay back and enjoy the beauty!
5. What makes you laugh out loud?
Life! Everyday I find a reason to just bust open and laugh. Usually its thanks to my girls... or my Hubby.. or a friend... Life is good, enjoy it!
