Yesterday was nice and relaxing around here. It was pretty rainy all day and the big kids both had plans that carried into sleep-outs, so aside from the weather keeping things calm, their absences left it very quiet in here. Aidan and I didn’t do much more than a lot of tv watching, video game playing, and a little cleaning. Henry was kind of bored admittedly but we are going out today so he will enjoy that. We have a few errands to run including a trip to the mall so Henry will be able to walk around a lot and get a good bit of exercise.
Last weekend when we went shopping for baby and maternity clothes I picked up a few tank tops without looking at the price. During the week when I was getting dressed I noticed the price tag said $45 for a tank top. Are you kidding me? I thought there was a sale on it so I checked the receipt and sure enough we were charge $45 — for a tank top. I was really angry that they would charge so much and also that I didn’t look at the price. Hell no, that is going back today, as well as another tank they charged me $30 for. $75 for some low quality tank tops? I think not. I’ll stop in Target and get two of them for $20 instead, thank you.
The other thing we need to return are a pair of jeans we got for Henry. They are skinny jeans. For a toddler. Interesting. He looks so goofy in them, like a little girl and it’s just no good. Hopefully they will have regular jeans but I seem to remember they were the only style offered? Oh well, again, there’s always Target.
I was looking through old photos on Facebook last night and jeeze it left me feeling depressed. Three years ago I was seriously so fit and thin. I looked great! After a pregnancy and a lot of crappy eating (and now another pregnancy) I am roughly 40 pounds heavier than I was 3 years ago. I really need to get back in shape, I felt so much better then, not mention how much better I looked. Of course, I know I am pregnant now so I can’t really “diet” but I sure can make better choices so I don’t gain too much more. So far I’ve gained 9 pounds in this pregnancy which isn’t bad but I don’t exercise or pay attention to what I’m eating. I think I need to get it together right away. The doctor gave me the green light for the eliptical, walking, and yoga and we have been researching the YMCA vs Planet Fitness. I need to do something soon though because every day that passes is a day I could be making changes.
I really don’t know what else to write about today so I am going to wrap it up now. I hope you enjoy this last day of the weekend. :)
