Snot Boy, Pink Eye and the Inquisition...

Yup, that's right...Mr. Mayer came up with the kids super hero names.
Pink Eye

Snot Boy

The Inquisition
Why you ask? Well...It started over the weekend. Donkey woke up from his nap with a gooey eye. It didn't look like much at first so I didn't do anything about it that day. Sunday morning he woke up and the eye was bright red and crusty. Yay. So Donkey and I make our first trip to Pediatric Urgent Care where it is confirmed he has pink eye. FAB-U-LOUS! The doctor gives me a prescription for an extra bottle of medicine so that "when" the other two get it I won't have to drag them back to the doctor.
On a side note it was a little strange going out with just one baby. I think even Donkey thought it was strange. He kept looking around like he was looking for his brother.
Now to snot boy...the same day (Sunday) that Donkey has pink eye Shrek wakes up with the snottiest nose he has ever had. Poor little dude can't breathe and is just eating snot. I can't even wipe his nose enough to keep it clean. By the end of the day his nose is bright red and looks so painful. He can't drink his bottles because he can't breathe. None of us are sleeping because he can't breathe. It's the 4th day and his nose has not slowed down much.
On a positive note (dripping with sarcasm) Donkey has also developed the snotty nose and pink eye in the other eye. So now I have two boys that cannot breathe and are a constant trail of green gooey snot.
They.are.not.happy.campers.
I am definitely earning my paycheck this week.
The Inquisition...that name is self explanatory. The child talks more than anyone I have ever met. And has more questions than anyone I have ever met. IT NEVER STOPS!
All these names came about Sunday afternoon. If you are friends with Mr. Mayer on Facebook you had probably already seen his posts. I reluctantly left Mr. Mayer home by himself Sunday afternoon with three grumpy kids to attend my first spin class. While I felt a little guilty about leaving him with the kids when they were all in such fowl moods I was very excited about the spin class.
I.LOVED.IT.
It was tough. I was sore. I cannot wait to go to another one.
Mr. Mayer has gone to a couple of classes this week and enjoyed them as well. We have a friend that teaches them and it's his class we went to. Both of us can't attend the early morning class so Mr. Mayer has been going to that one. I have been perusing the schedule and plan to attend one of the other instructors classes later in the morning (when there is child care). As soon as the sea of snot ends and these boys quit looking so sick. I don't think the gym is in the cards for me this week :(
Why the sudden interest in spin classes and the gym? Mr. Mayer and I have gotten lazy. With my 1st pregnancy I gained 80 pounds. I only lost 40 of those pounds. I've been pretty unhappy about that for the past 4 years. In my second pregnancy I gained 40 pounds and lost all of that pretty quickly, but I am a size larger and have a big stomach. I am even unhappier about that. Mr. Mayer and I were pretty tired of being so unhappy with ourselves. Yesterday was our anniversary and we agreed that in 2 years on our 10th anniversary we will take a trip somewhere tropical (Turks&Caicos, Barbados, Hawaii, Bahamas...you get the idea). I am not going as a flabby overweight hating myself person. I have 2 years to get to a place I'm happy with. I hope I don't punk out. I'm 4 pounds down in a week. I think that's a good start. Slow and Steady wins the race, right?

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

That's Gonna Hurt

HEY Y'ALL!!!! It's me again!! hahahahaha....life has a way of zipping by, doesn't it? Life has been going by at warp speed around here. I'm still working. I only regret it twice a week :( I would by lying if I said I didn't miss being at home. I miss the day to day stuff, and I hate paying a babysitter. It breaks my heart when one of the kids tell me they miss me, or they wish I didn't work. However, the extra income is nice. Seeing Mr. Mayer not as stressed about finances is nice, and I feel like I am contributing.
My main reason for getting a job remains. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. Considering my genetic makeup if that's all that I have, I'm okay with it. I was medicated for a long time. I stopped taking my medications two years ago and have been able to keep a handle on myself for a long time. However, I had a bad month in December. Besides the normal Christmas stress, my wheels were stolen, which added another…

Let Me Catch My Breathe....

Hey! Hey! Hey! My fitness tour is still going strong :) I am pretty confident I will be able to at least make it to vacation time doing free, or discounted classes around town. Then I can make my final decision on what I want to stick with. The last two weeks have taught me that my fitness level has gone way down....I am not as strong as I thought I was. Maybe gone down isn't the right word. Maybe, more like, I'm nuts and had a skewed perception of my fitness level....maybe I was never as fit as I thought I was??? All these classes are giving me a dose of reality.
This week I started off strong with CycleBar. Now. I LOVE spin classes. My friend, Jeff, started teaching spin a million years ago, and I took my first spin class with him in 2011. He has always been my favorite instructor and I compare every other class to him. Every one. So, on a scale of 1-Jeff how did I like Cycle Bar...I'll admit, it was at an 8 or 9. Maybe if the instructor and I were friends outside of cla…
