|Ultimate Fat Burning Workout|
I thought: About how other families with special needs children cope without any help. Since our son was about 6 weeks old, we've always had someone come in to help, even if just for a couple of hours a day. Now, we've had three weeks of a lot less help than usual, with none at all for the last 24 hours, nor the next 24, and I was in tears several times today. I feel pathetic that I can't cope by myself, but he takes so much care, mental and physical, it's really exhausting.
I slept: 8 1/2 hours in 6 chunks.
I worked out: 40 minutes of the Firm's Ultimate Fat Burning Workout, with Alison Davis-McLean. I liked this a lot better than the other of her workouts I tried. There wasn't too much high-impact, and while they recommended using 2-5lb weights, I used my 2.5k weights (5.5lbs) and felt strong. It was also funny to see Jennifer Galardi as one of the background exercisers, as she's since moved on to doing her own workout dvd's under her own name, rather than just as "Firm" talent.
I ate: 15g chocolate after lunch, and about 80g chocolate and 65g biscuits after dinner. Total 160g, not too bad given the circumstances.
I am grateful for: My DH, who took the night shift with our son so I could at least get some sleep, and took him for his bath while I worked out.
