I made it through!!
Monday, February 28, 2011
I had to take the bus to my parents house to look after my nephews at short notice today, as my brother was taken in to hospital last night for an emergency appendectomy (? not sure if I've spelled that right). They are 1 1/2yrs (ish) and 6 months old, and along with my own 2 yr old, I was geared up for it being a very stressful day. Ah, also, there was a 4th child . . . my 64 yr old father(!!) . . . who was the one asked to look after the babies, but he can't do it alone as he refuses to change dirty nappies!!
I don't know how this man has made it through these last 64 years . . .
Anyway, I just wanted to share that I not only made it through, but, I'm not feeling stressed this evening, I kept within my calorie range, exceeded my water and fruit / veg goals and not only did I walk the 3 miles or so to the bus station, I also burned plenty of calories chasing around after them all day!!
Ah, also, I got on the scale this morning to find I had lost another 1lb!!
So, all in all, it has been an unexpectedly good day. I achieved a lot!
But, now, I am exhausted and am off to bed!!
