Compromise with a Two year old

Yesterday wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. I put on .6lbs. That first 15lbs evades me still. I decided to try a different tactic this week. At our WW meeting, we have something called the Travelling Tracker. This is a duotang that a different member takes home every week to journal what they eat, points, exercise, thoughts etc. Almost always the person who takes it home loses weight that week. Funny how the thought of someone else reading what you are putting down has a way of helping you stay on track. Anyway, I asked for the Tracker this week. Here's hoping that I can have a great week and break that 15lb barrier.

Zach and I went for a walk again this morning after we dropped Gabe off at school. It takes me a little longer to walk when I have him because he wants to talk to me all the time, and the stroller faces away from me. Add that to his mumbling and it makes it a little hard to understand him without stopping. Today he was a little out of sorts, so we had a few tears. Things got better when I let him play with my kept checking to make sure he still had them. He also wants to walk, but I need to walk faster than his little legs will let him. So, we have compromised. We do most of the walk with him in the stroller and then when we get back to the end of our street he gets out and walks with me. It seems to be enough to keep him happy, and I still get the walk I need. We'll see how tomorrow goes.
