Back to life, back to reality

SO its been a while since I posted here.  I go between the two posts of James and my life. I should just merge them into one, but nah I like the separation.  Anyhow lately reality has really been rearing it's ugly face and head in my life.  Mostly in the form of the weight I have put back on since having a kid.  It seems both Jeremy and I have fallen into the "we have a kid we have no time" part of life.  No time to exercise and no time to ourselves.  We don't have many people who we would want to watch him during the day or could while we go for a run.  Jeremy wants to rejoin a gym but we can't afford it.  The one thing I have been trying my hardest with is staying on top of my eating.  Every once in a while I go a little crazy and eat something I shouldn't then I feel depressed about it.  I get back on the healthy eating wagon ASAP after that.  I still make dinner almost every night and get a salad or something smallish for lunch.  Breakfast I am trying these green smoothies with frozen fruit and spinach.  It is hard with a little one, being in the cold and wanting to just go out for a run. I am learning how to reprioritize, but its hard when you leave the house at 7:30 and am home at 4 with the little one only to have to start cooking dinner at 5.  I am sure as he grows we will get back in the swing but for now, we will do what we can.  Spring is slowing coming upon us and a walk yesterday without cell phones and just us was what we needed as a family.
