Aggravated with everything!! =[

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

I didn't have a great weekend eating, I ate to much salt so I retained a ton of water. I was back on track yesterday and got rid of alot of water weight. I was sick all week lastweek so I finally got a good workout in yesterday.

I seem to get stuck in this pattern of doing very good and making progress then I end up eating some not so good stuff and my progress goes out the window..So then I end up losing and gaining the same couple of pounds every week.. I know I just have to stick with it through the weekends and I'd be able to break this pattern.. I end up saying frig it. I don't get why winter is so hard for me to stck with making the right choices.. I have other stuff going on in my life and I know that food makes me feel good in the moment. But then the next morning I feel like crap about what I ate the day before.. I know I can do this. I really can't wait for spring to ge here and get my butt outside. go for walks and work in my garden.. Just feeling out of sorts this morning..

My BF is fighting with my son to brush his teeth and My son doesn't like the toothpaste He's only 3.5 and I get so sick of bf trying to get him to do things that he doesn't want to do. Then
he wants to taken my sons toys away then he cries and gets upset. In the long run its good for him to brush his teeth but then He won't want to do it because its a struggle to get him to do it.. BF won't give in until My son does it.. I'm just not that kind of mom. I'm easy going and I'd rather try to get him to do it with out the arguing and fighting.. BF is just really getting to me about a ton of stuff but when it has to do with my son it really tugs on my heart strings and I have a very hard time not telling My BF where to go, then it would just be BF telling me I never think he does anything right and Blah Blah Blah... Then he will talk for a friggen hour because he has ocd and i can't take much more of him.. =[
thanks for reading

    OMG, Ronny, were you inside my head? You must have been because what you described about the weekends, food & exercising describes MY life.

    I think GOOFYGIRL1974 gave you the very BEST advice about your son & brushing his teeth. You definitely want it to be a positive experience so he can make good habits. I also understand what the BF has been trying to do I'm sure because of his concerns. Maybe see if one of you brushes your own teeth along side him while he does his it might be a nice game for him.

    Good luck.

    And we WILL go walking SOON, it's ALMOST here!

    OHHh i know what you mean.. about winter and just not doing the same when its much warmer..Hang in there things will look up in a few months and you will feel better. The thing is to find what you can do in the winter that is fun,.. i know hard to do but can be done..

    Rhonda~ I have the same trouble with food on the weekends. It's tough. I think you and I should challenge each other for the weekends! :) Evil I know but it could be fun!

    Regarding your little man...take him to the store, show him the kids toothpastes, ask him to point to the ones he likes (the pictures I mean..and even if he likes the girlie ones that's ok emoticon ), then take three (no more 'cause that's too many choices for the little ones...they get overwhelmed) of the ones he pointed out and ask him to pick his favorite. Now he has the one he likes. Talk to him about the flavors as well. My 6 yr old son didn't like any of the toothpastes I picked so once I gave him the option (at 4 yrs old) to pick what he liked it became much much easier to get him to brush his teeth. Tell your BF to back off. Brushing one's teeth should not be traumatic...it's should be a positive experience.

    Once and EVERY time your son brushes his teeth really put some emphasis on how good of a job he did, how beautiful his teeth look, how good his breath smells, and say something like, "gee, don't your teeth feel nice now?". You may find after a few weeks that he will stop fighting and actually like brushing his teeth.

    My 6 yr old now does a better job of brushing his teeth than his big brother who's 17.

    Best of luck! emoticon
