Mix of Things

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Staying at home is really opening doors for the wonderful world of online shopping. I have purchased a few things online such as books and dvds but I’m finding a whole market for baby stuff or at least discounts on baby stuff. Having something delivered at my door is definitely better than facing the crowds out there. Other times it’s better just to go to the store and get the product there and then instead of waiting for the free delivery.
Time management is going okay. I was able to sleep while baby sleep two days in a roll – that’s huge, just ask my husband – which was a great accomplishment for me. I’ve been writing down what times he’s been sleeping by himself because that will give me an idea of what I can get done and when. My baby likes to be held and carried most of the time – like most newborns – so that limits the time for errands that require both hands and a light back (meaning, I’m not wearing a carrier).
My son will be one month tomorrow! The memories of my delivery/birth are getting more focused to the fact that everything went well, according to God’s plan we have a healthy baby boy. I love him more and more as the days go by!
On the weight management front, I’m making the effort to cut down on sweets, cut down portions and eat quality food (veggies, legumes, fruits, whole grains, lean protein). I haven’t been perfect (I have an infant and I don’t work in Hollywood, let’s put it like that) but I have felt confident about the progress we’re making. My husband is in with me, so each week we change more things about our eating habits. I wrote a post about avoiding the scale for multiple weeks.
I read it again and felt encouraged to weigh myself only once a week. More than that leaves me discouraged. Yep, time to see if all of the lessons on weight management are still printed in my mind somewhere over the fogginess you feel with the lack of sleep caused by the wonderful world of motherhood.
