Life Change-Day 5

Well the past few days I have been out of town in Fresno visiting my family. I will tell you one thing. Having twins makes this "life Change" a very difficult task. I really cannot believe how hard it is to stay on track simply because I have two children. As some of you may know, having twins is no easy task. I can't just run to the grocery store or run to the bank. It takes about 10 minutes to put my HUGE limo double stroller together. It takes about 5 minutes per baby to take out of his car seat and snap him into the stroller. So when I was out of town staying at my Mom's house that contained ZERO and I mean ZERO foods that have any form of nutritional value...I found it hard to eat right. This led me to a breakdown. All I wanted was a freakin Subway sandwich. But I had two sleeping babies and I wasn't about to leave them in the car in the 90 degree heat...I was FORCED to go through the stupid Taco Bell drive through and get a quesadilla. I was seriously pissed. Then it set me off on the fact that healthy restaurants don't have drive throughs. What about the Mom whose husband works, who has 2 babies and is out and about? What about that consumer? I was really frustrated that I ate fast food... that let to my crying fest. Other than that, I am staying on track and am eating healthy. Still need to kick up my cardio though! Thanks for reading guys!

I was going to tell you the same thing about the taco info... I was surprised to learn it's not all that bad! Keep it up, you're doing great!!

A couple weeks ago I started using the bender ball. IRS only about 15 minutes but works great!! That might be easy to do while the boys nap. You can buy it online I think. I stole mine from my sis :)

It's going to be tough, very tough in the beginning, but don't get discouraged, with time, you'll be able to make healthy habits without struggling so much. I commend you for trying while having twins. KUDOS! You are strong!

This is what I suggest. When going grocery shopping, grab snacks you can put in your car, and in your diaper bag. Trail mix, dry healthy cereal (in a zip lock) to eat while you're unable, for whatever reason,to grab a full meal. I do this when I'm on the run, and I suddenly realize I have no time to grab a healthy meal, so I chow down on trail mix, and healthy options that will get me over that hump. Sometimes, instead of coffee, I put milk (2% or fat free)and ice in a cup that keeps it cold for longer, and drink that when I have a craving for crap food. It gives you enough time to focus on the right choices, vs the choices your stomach craves!

I hope this helps. I don't know if my thoughts were all over the place or not lol...
