Last night definitely did not go as I would have liked it to. About 10-15 minutes after I went to bed I hear my oldest making choking sounds and start crying. I knew immediately what had happened, and sure enough, as I jumped up and ran into her room the overwhelming stench of vomit hit me like a wall. And there was poor Lily, covered and crying saying "mommy, I spit in my bed!" I'm not going to lie, it was pretty bad. I had to wash her hair, change her clothes, and her sheets including her pillow. I had to clean up spots on the carpet too, wash out the sheets in the sink, get the laundry started and when everything was done, I put a fan in her room to blow the smell out because it smelled like carpet cleaner and vomit. I think I got to bed around midnight. Later, Chloe woke up, but thankfully no vomit. She was cold, so I turned the heater on in her room. I never thought that I would have to turn on the heater at the end of July! It's been rainy and cold for the past two days here. Chloe woke up twice somewhere around 3-4 in the morning. Naturally, I've been exhausted all day today and the kids still didn't feel very good. We subsisted today on ginger ale, saltines and movies.
I have been mentally preparing for my challenge today, all my motivational sayings are posted around the kitchen and living room, and the most important one is in the place I look the most and it says "Finish what you started" Which has multiple meanings for me. It's time to finish my weight loss journey, and I also have a bad habit of not finishing my challenges because I get bored with them. So now is the time to Finish What I started! I have a little calendar that says 92 days on it I made out of a sticky note pad and I am going to rip off one a day. 92 days will come and go. In 92 days I could be at the finish line or I could still be fiddling around 145. This is to remind me every day, where do I want to be at the end of this challenge! I want to be able to look back and have no regrets, to be able to say I gave it my all, I did my best, I worked hard every single day, and I feel proud of myself.
