Saturday night was rough. Chloe was feeling really sick, probably with the exact same thing I had and she woke up screaming several times and I was terrified that she had thrown up. Fortunately she hadn't and I just rocked her back to sleep, after looking at my fitbit the next day I clocked 5 hours and 45 minutes of sleep. I felt mildly better in the morning, but not much. The morning proved to be pretty stressful trying to get the kids ready for church, along with myself, and get out the door on time. I also had to finish preparing my lesson since you know I didn't do anything yesterday I was way too sick. After church I was feeling less stressed and managed to get the family fed and Matt helped me clean the kitchen which was overflowing from me not doing the dishes yesterday. Matt bought me a cherry tomato plant for mother's day. (I love cherry tomatoes) and the kids bought me some Petunia's from Costco. That was sweet of them.

After cleaning the kitchen we packed everyone up and headed over to my grandparent's house where my whole family was meeting for dinner. I still wasn't feeling well so I didn't eat much. Just some of the fresh fruit they had out, one small steak, and one finger potato. They even had sparkling grape juice which I usually down by the bottle but I didn't even finish my glass which was probably just half a cup. I had one bite of cheesecake and knew I didn't want anything else. It didn't even taste very good and I wonder if that is just because I'm not feeling well. Strange though, usually sweets still taste good even when I'm not feeling well. Several times when I've been sick I've caused myself to throw up because I ate something sweet that really aggravated my stomach.... maybe I've finally learned my lesson. I finished today around 1500 calories which is really great for a Sunday. I'm hoping the kids sleep tonight and I can get some good sleep in tomorrow and fell better. I don't want to miss any days of training and besides that Zumba toning is tomorrow and I don't want to miss that.
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's who read my blog!
