If you have never experienced a young child with rotavirus be very thankful indeed. My 21 month old has been so sick all week. I bought a pack of 80 diapers on Sunday, not even needing them yet and have gone through about 70 of them. The stench is unbelievable. The house smells like air fresheners because the alternative is far too gross. The poor baby's bottom was so raw and painful.
Changing that many diapers wore me out. I spent the week carb loading. I still managed to to stay within my calories all but one day and still stuck to about 2000 on that day too. I am trying to reroute my brain back to the healthy side of eating. It isn't easy.
I am hoping that the next week will be a little easier. Little man seems to be feeling better. My house is in good shape and I just have a couple of loads of laundry to get done.
I am truly a mom over the top! I have been a compulsive overeater for most of my life. The first time I remember specific over the top eating behaviors was when I was 13 years old. That was 24 years ago. I started on this journey to health, to abstinence, to sanity in May, 2010. I hope that by blogging I can help, not only myself, but help others to know that they aren't alone. My tools on this journey are Overeaters Anonymous and SparkPeople.
