This morning, Steve took Gus to his first Gymboree Play and Learn class. They're doing it together, just the two of them and I think it's great. It's the first time EVER that I've been at home by myself and Steve and Gus were off doing something. The house was incredibly quiet... too quiet.
Steve said that Gus had a great time, but he was ready to go before the class was over. He said there were other dads there, so I'm glad he wasn't the only one (not that it would matter).
Right after they returned, it was time for me to leave for my nail appointment. After I was done, I stopped at Staples and got some stuff to organize my MOMS Club stuff into one binder. It's a much bigger binder, but I'm pleased.
I stopped and grabbed lunch for us and brought it home for us to enjoy while we watched some television. Not too long after, Gus went down for his nap.
When Steve went up to get Gus, the worst fear I had about our crib tent had come true. The reason it was recalled was because if it's inverted, it can kill a child. Well-- Gus must have been trying to hang from the top, because when Steve went in to get him, the tent was inverted and Gus was laying on top of it (picture a dome tent... pull the middle and it becomes like a bowl). Steve was changing Gus while I was atttempting to pull the tent back into position and IT WAS SUPER HARD.
So, had Gus been under it when it collapsed, he could have been seriously injured. We pulled the tent out and he's now just in the crib with nothing keeping him contained. The time we have with him in there without climbing out is limited... when he does climb out, he'll be moving to his new room whether he wants to go or not.
Steve worked on my computer all day (THANK YOU BABY). A few weeks ago I got a new hard drive and he's been slowly adding my stuff back on. Today he set up my printer and scanner and hopefully tomorrow we'll have iTunes ready. :D
After Gus was up from his nap, we headed to Bobby G's for dinner. You might remember a few weeks ago when Gus and I went there with my MOMS Club for a tour, and they gave me a $10 gift card. Well, we decided to head out and use it tonight. IT WAS DELICIOUS.
We both agree that it's totally worth the drive. I think we'll go there next Tuesday for Family Night with my mom and dad. I think they'd like the atmosphere and I'm certain they'd love the pizza. I figure my mom will probably get a hotdog... just my guess. ;-)
I weighed in this morning and I didn't gain or lose. I'm a little disappointed. I feel like I'm watching what I eat (I allow myself one "cheat" day where I don't count calories) and working out... so I thought I'd be dropping weight like crazy. However, it's just coming off slower than I had expected. I guess it's normal-- my dad said that the body tends to hold on to fat cells because it goes into starvation mode.
While my point of exercising was to just get moving (and I am), I also wanted and need to lose weight. I know it's not a race, and I am going slow and steady, but it's frustrating. I'm not giving up-- I'm staying firm to my routine and I am proud of myself for sticking with it this long. I know it's not an option to stop... this is a lifestyle change.
Anyway, I had just hoped to lose more than nine pounds in the two months that I've been at it. That's all. If I lose 5 pounds a month... I guess it isn't too bad. Just puts me at taking longer to achieve my goal... maybe once I start running for longer increments, I'll lose more??? Who knows.
I'm going to bed.
