Have to vent

Sorry, I needed to get this off my chest, Andy has a calm personality and when I vent he just tells me that I have to stay Calm and let it go.... Jump mania day is a toddler only day at the jump castles. I don't mind if older children show up, providing they know how to behave. I caught this older kid jump, push or throw Clark down 3 times! I was so pissed because his mother was On the phone that whole time. I wanted to punch her in the face, repeatedly. I'm sure kickboxing has given me some sort of advantage right? The first time I took it as "this kid is just clumsy and fell into my son" the second time I saw him leading and then eventually dragging Clark through the castles and the brat ran off and hid when I yelled. The last time I saw him lead, then drag and then throw my son to the ground. When he jumped on him I yelled at him, chase him down and threatened him. I didn't threaten to hurt him, I just told him if he touched my son again I would find his mother and tell her exactly what he had done. Somehow that scared him enough that he ran away if I even gave him a raised eyebrow. As for Clark, I found him crying the last time inside the bounce castle. I got him out and snuggled him. I myself wanted to cry because I get really sensitive if my kids get hurt and I couldn't a help him. If that kid is there next week, and my mom is with me.....well we will see what I do if he touches Clark again.

So earlier in the week I had weighed myself and was shocked that I was 215. Alas, it was a bit of a bad week, I went to a baby shower and a birthday all in the same day. I know I could have simply resisted the cupcakes at the shower and the cake at the end of he night, but you know what, I regret nothing! Regardless of my little stumble I am still happy that I lost 2 pounds from last week, so if I lose 2 more pounds then I will have lost 20 pounds. The nice part is looking at the jeans in my closet that I can officially donate because they are too big. Of course I still have quite a way to go before I am at my pre- Clark weight (about 30 pounds) I am almost to my pre Gemma weight (I was smarter the second pregnancy and stopped fooling myself with the eating for 2 notion). I am keeping up my chiropractor appointments because my lower back feels better one day but then not so great the next. Still keeping away from the pop, but I have been drinking lemonade (does that count)?. Speaking of lemonade, Saturday night I had lemonade beer for the first time. I think I am in love...... I hope next week my post will talk about my 20 pound weight loss, but only time will tell, just need to crack the whip on my eating and tell people to not bring pop or chips into my house (unless they are eating all of it and not leaving any behind).

Heres an update on my progress so far. As of last sunday my weight loss has been 13 pounds!  I am starting to feel better physically, I just need to get to the chiropracter to get my back adjusted.  I have been having a harder time at kickboxing and I think it is due to the constant picking up of a 32 pound toddler and a 12 pound baby, its a bit of a strain on me, and I'm trying not to favour one arm over the other but its really hard.
Its hard to stay off of a scale constantly to see what my weight of the day is and I just have to remind myself that even when I haven't lost, I'm still doing myself well.
I am still avoiding pop, which is a lot easier than I thought it would be, but fast food is still my weakness.  Thankfully with weight watchers I can still enjoy it, just in moderation.  I'm looking forward to hitting the 20 pound weightloss, I just have to stay patient, it will come soon enough.
