Can I press the restart button for this Monday?


I swear, I would so press that button right now! If only that option was available.

I would go back and get in a workout at the 6 am mark. I had the chance, but decided to sleep in instead. Bad choice because I am so much better when I get a good workout in. I missed that energy rush and the chance to get ready and have breakfast before Brielle gets up.

By the time she woke up it was 9 and my whole day was thrown out of whack!!!

After we had our playtime, I put her down for her nap and did manage to have some breakfast.  She was having trouble going to sleep so I tried EVERYTHING in my arsenal, but came up empty. She was not going to sleep.

I try to stick to the Baby Whisperer’s EASY method. A loose routine that goes through Eat, Activity, Sleep in a 3hr set. Since she didn’t sleep, she went into another set and finally took a 2 hr nap.  I thought she’d be ready to play after she woke up, but she really didn’t wake up. She ate and wanted to go back right to sleep. Then she woke up but just kind of sat there, she wasn’t the active self she usually was. She did manage to talk to me for a bit and now she is taking her nap.

I have no idea what routine she is on today, none whatsoever.

I guess we’ll have our good days and try to manage the not so good ones. Let’s hope it doesn’t spill over to her nighttime schedule.

In terms of fitness, I think I’ve learned I can’t set a workout schedule right now. Sleep is too important and I really don’t have any control over how much I get of it each night. I just have to learn to make the right choices when I’m rested and have a chance to work out. I have to seize those opportunities!

Since I can’t control that, I’m just going to focus on the nutrition portion of it. I haven’t been the best, but I sure am going to try :)

Here’s to hopin’ tomorrow is another day :)

BTW, anyone know of any tips to get a baby to sleep?
