Thoughts: I did not work out at all last night. I wanted to jog on the treadmill since it's been 3 or 4 days, but once Alex got home I was just too tired. I really have no excuse, I just didn't feel up to it. I have to MAKE myself do it. I have made a grocery list and a meal plan, that I really want to stick to.
Really good day for dieting. I didn't cheat at all I did a few exercises throughout the day and I jogged for 50 minutes. I haven't jogged that long since we moved from the apartment 2 years ago. Woo! Hopefully I can keep this up tomorrow.

Thoughts: Still not feeling 100%. This has been my worst ever parenting day but I fear tomorrow may come close to matching it. Kodi is now sick and very uncomfortable. If he's not on the breast he's crying and sometimes he's crying while on the breast. These stomach cramps are truly awful... They had me moaning a few times. After 4 days of eating virtually nothing it seems my milk supply is finally taking a hit despite my efforts to consume enough liquids. Hence the bowl of noodles... anything to easily pack in some calories right now Dave is now sick and Kai is really acting up because he has barely seen me in 3 days and now when he does it's all about the baby - his new reality. This is so hard. I don't want Kai to hate me or resent his brother. I don't want Dave to have to help so much when he is sick and I really don't want to see Kodi in so much pain. I hope he got enough of the antibiodies from me that this will be really short lived for him *cry*... rough rough day.
Last updated 4:00pm. I'll edit this post throughout the day.
