I only gained one pound from being sick and lazy for 4 days. I overate (by a big cup of milk) 2 days in that 4 days. I am okay with one pound! It just shows that when you work at it, you will lose and if you are lazy, you will gain.
I was so proud yesterday of my son. I know he’s only doing this because he’s grounded and has nothing better to do but I’m still proud. After his doctor appointment, I made him come home, walk the dog, and then go with me to the gym. I told him there are chairs or he can do the bike next to me. The gym rules state that your child can be next to you or they can take this class to be able to do what they want. He got on the bike next to me! He kept talking to me which I wasn’t thrilled about but I am also not going to complain that I had to take my headphones off multiple times. He also kept getting off the bike so it would turn off which would frustrate him but I never stopped riding and he kept starting over. We biked for 45 minutes. I then went and did arms. I only used 5-15 pounds and I only did 2 sets of 12 on each arm machine. I felt really good for doing it. The last time I did them, my arms hurt so bad and I wasn’t sure what I did wrong. So I used the arm machines and I was fine. Yay! Then we came home and watched a scary movie together and he went to be around 10pm and I did at 11:30. So it was a good night.
Today will be sad and then fun. We are going to help my clients family clean out Forgetful’s apartment in the retirement home. Then my son and I will go work out again. Then comes the fun part. I am taking him to his godparents house for the night. I am going out with my friend and his roommate for dinner and drinks after. I can’t wait to go out and have a good time. I told my sons godmother that my son is grounded and can only watch tv if they are watching something. He will not even have his phone as they both have a phone if he needs to call me. It’s also a chance to work on his attitude since they have 3 kids, 9 year old twins and another 6 year old. She will bring him home bright and early tomorrow morning so I told him to take his key so I don’t have to wake up and let him in. I might get up though. Depends on what time I get to bed.
His doctor told me to get gummy vitamins. I got some at the grocery store although he’s about to get braces, can he eat gummies? Guess we will find out! The doctor thinks he is doing amazingly well considering he has been off ADHD and asthma meds for a month. Yes, I agree with her on that. Kept his A’s, not been as brooding, just the one issue that one night. That is pretty good. Let’s hope things keep getting better and better.
So have a great weekend. I hope to!
