Next Steps, Grandkids and Hip Hop Abs!

I have finished the Whole 30, with great results, but the question remains..."What next?".  I like structure.  When I knew what I could and could not eat, it was relatively easy, except when things were busy and I couldn't just grab something on the run.  Hard boiled eggs are a must to have on hand.  My planning has to improve.  Now that we are officially done the 30 days, I am feeling a little lax.  I've been ok, but it would be SO easy to slip back into old habits.  Emma was having some Corn Bran cereal for a snack, and I shoved a small handful into my mouth.  I had sweet potato fries the other day, which technically are ok, but the deep fried is not so good.  I also think I ate too many of them.  So, I think it will be best just to continue on with the Whole 30 guidelines until I can do a bit more reading up on the next steps.

That will probably take a couple weeks, as it is kind of crazy, but good crazy, around here, with a houseful.  It has been so wonderful having Sarah and the girls here.  It is going to be very hard when they have to go home on August 11.  We also have William here this week and things are a little bit louder and more active with him. 

Last night, I thought William was having a nightmare.  When I went in the room, he was crying that he couldn't sleep because Emma was snoring so loud!  She does snore quite loudly.  I told Sarah that she should have her checked.  Maybe it is large tonsils or adenoids, or whatever it is back in that area.

The kids have been having a ball in the pool.  That was 40 bucks well spent; and the patio is an ever changing artist's palette.


Sarah and I did a Hip Hop Abs workout today.  I had seen the tail end of an infomercial that said it was on sale for only $19.95, so I checked out the website and decided to order it.  Sarah ordered one, too, because you could get a second one for free shipping.  It seems like it will be fun, once I get the routine coordinated.  Even the old Richard Simmons tapes took a few times to get down.  I do need to start moving again.  I want to get back to running.  My left leg keeps going tingly.  I have had some massage therapy and am going back again next week.  I know I can run through it.  It is not a constant tingling, but comes and goes.  My leg, calf, hip, glute, hamstrings are all really tight and knotted. 

So much for my ramblings.  Time for bed!

  1. My youngest snored so loud that her sister asked to move to a different room! Turned out it was large tonsils and adenoids. She had those out in April and no more snoring!!!!
