The Not Hot Mom post

Hey friends, so this week I've been a bit behind in life.
It happens.
My house has been a mess (it gets cleaned every AM before everyone is awake, but it cant stay that way) and it needs a BIG scrub know, getting down on hands and knees and scrubbing things. Maybe even moving furniture to get the dust bunnies that now are probably the size of a small horse.

As an OCD person, a messy house means a scattered brain. I've also been behind in work, and I've not been tracking my food or exercising.

It's like a domino effect.
BAD eating, no tracking makes me sluggish and it equates to me not as effective in the mother/wife/domestic/work department. I promise, once you start eating better and exercising, life gets so much manageable!

But wow is it easy to make excuses and eat bad. It started with a weekend of eating a meal out, then it spiraled out of control after not getting to the grocery store on time-. And wow, aren't drive-thrus SO easy!

The only positive thing is, I always feed Kie better than I eat. He always gets homemade meals and fruit/veggies.

So why can't I always do that for myself? Because I'm lazy, simple as that.

Also, Kie and Kix have come down with a little cold, or something.
Kie has handled it pretty well, only a few meltdowns when he hasn't gotten in a nap.
Kix JUST got sick and it's sad to see such a small baby feel bad.

So, THIS mom has gotta scrub the house and get my babies better!
As for the scale, I don't even want to be honest about my weight...because I may cry.
But, I've GAINED. How do I gain so easily?
I don't know!
I think because I'm a professional on what to not eat and when to eat in order to put on weight.

So yes, I've gained maybe 2-3lbs since last week.
I'm sure a lot of it has to do with water retention and overly salty foods--
but a lot also has to do with milkshakes, Blizzards and fries.

I feel bad but in order for me to get on track again, I gotta deep clean my house--organize and start to move again. And ultimately make better choices on what to eat.

Hope everyone else is doing better than I am in the food/exercise department!
I could use some encouragement...and it probably wouldn't hurt if I'd put down the Dove Chocolates!

Next blog post will cover the baby carriers I've used and my reviews.
Slings, Wraps and Carriers...Oh, my!

Until next time,


  1. I'm having the same issue. Messy house that needs to be scrubbed, not so great meals, although I haven't been eating out...just not healthy cooked meals at home, and we have been sick around here. It's so easy to get off track and so hard to get back on track. You're right though, you feel so much better when you're on track! I find it impossible to function if my house is messy, and I need to fix the messy to get back on track!

    1. Let's make next week waaay better! that's my goal! It takes baby steps and it can get overwhelming trying to tackle it when you see the entire mountain you have to steps can get us started! :) thanks for the motivation!

  2. January BLAHS! We've had them, too! Exercising, eating, everything was great until last week when my husband went out of town for the week, and I got sick. We won't even discuss the state of my house, it was just bad! My thing with weight is that I just can't adjust to how my body deals with things now. Early twenties- no big deal to eat fast food, drink 4 beers, and then dessert. Now... EVERYTHING is against me! Hang in there- everything will get back on track!

  3. I feel ya Momma...Yea, the January Blues STINK! I'm ready for sunshine and warm weather....
    I also feel ya on the husband being gone often...but we got some cute kids....sooo regardless we're blessed moms.
    Oh, as for the dessert and beer...I gotta learn to curb that too...they are my self-medication tho, so it's hard to give them up! ;) haha! Here's to us both having a better week!
