Thank you for the wonderful advice yesterday on cutting our grocery budget
I need all the help I can get! I know we can do it if we put our minds to it, and right now we are both 100% in. I just hope it stays that way!
Drinking coffee and trying to warm up my throat. I am determined to work out today. I still have some pretty heavy congestion, but once I've been up and drinking some water for a while, it loosens up and I feel okay. It's the night that is the worst, as soon as I lay down my congestion goes haywire. I got 4 hours of sleep last night, and I took my sleep aid. Geez Louise, I probably would not have slept at all if I had not taken anything!! It's tempting to not work out and go back to bed, I'm so tired. But I know the moment I lay down, the congestion will move and I won't sleep. I'll just lay there like I did yesterday morning.
So, work out this morning, I'm probably going to take it easy and just do 30 minutes. I want to do more, but with my sinus this way I it's probably not a good idea. Jillian Michaels Shred can wait till Saturday.
Been really thinking about it, and I am not a connected homeschool mom. I don't know any of the co-ops. I have the worst luck when it comes to joining homeschool groups, they are usually not very active or in one case the most active group, but shutting down. I've got to get the kids involved or send them to public school. End of story. I've got a few people whose brains I'd like to pick on how to get connected and get my kids more in the community. I've talked it over with DH and if I can't get them more involved and get them a good group of friends by the time they reach middle school, then off to public school it is. I absolutely hate the thought of it, but this is about what is best for the kids. I always want to give them their best chance, no matter what that is. So I'm going to be stepping out of my comfort zone and trying my best to get involved. I can't do the co-ops right now as money is tight with all the medical stuff going on with hubby and I, but as soon as that is over, I'm going to put them in classes, get them involved. Youngest DD does not want to, I don't know why, but that is something we are going to have to work on.
My glucose is a temperamental thing. I eat a banana, and it shoots up to 192, I work out, it drops back down to 111. A banana. Granted a banana does have a good amount of sugar in it, but it is an all natural sugar. If it goes that high for just a banana, I certainly can't have much sugar. I don't even want to know what it is after a cup of coffee. I use 2 tsp of sugar in my coffee. Which I am now going to have to stop doing and go with little or no sugar. I may have to quit coffee. I've taken my coffee this way for 20 years. Wow... I can say I've done something for 20 years.... now I feel old. Any way, change the sugar in my coffee or stop drinking it. And I love coffee. My health is more important. I need to remember that when I'm tempted to eat carbs - my health is more important than the momentary enjoyment of it.
