I made it to the YMCA three times this week. One time was with my youngest son and the other two times have been by myself. When I go on my own I leave about an hour before my son's shower time. My goal is to be able to spend at least two hours there. I vary my routine up by not always doing the same thing. Swimming is my favorite though. I like to be near others when I work out cause sometimes I compete with people without them knowing. I may try to stick close to someone or if I see an old person walking faster than me then I know to pick up my pace. My goal is to get my son to the Y at least once a week with me. I wish it could be more but between him going to school and homework and me working full time it's all I can manage.

My son eating habits are getting very bad. He will eat food from the floor or even the ground. He acts like he has been a starved child and I can promise you that my son never went hungry. I don't know what to do. We went to the Y and walked a mile and then were in the pool. On the way home, he asked if we can stop at McDonald's for ice cream. One. I think it's silly to work out and then eat ice cream. Two. I forgot my wallet and I told him that I didn't have any money to buy ice cream even if I wanted to do it. He gets all mad and insists on ice cream. Hello?? Any normal person would get no money do means no ice cream. It's like he just doesn't understand this stuff.

For Halloween I took my son to a church cause I thought he would get less candy. Instead he got normal size candy bars plus we did hit a few hours just for the sake of trick or treating. My son is driving me crazy wanting to eat candy. I keep saying that I am going to do daily walks but then I forget and don't forget homework. I make the effort to go to the Y at least twice a week and mostly he only gets there once or twice a month. We are not getting anywhere with getting him to understand that he isn't going to starve and I just get so confused on why he acts the way he does. I am trying everything I can. For example, we let him get pop corn (a bag) I asked for a small bowl and he gives me a dirty look. Another example, I give the cat a cat treat and he says since I gave her a treat he should have a treat.
