Uuuuggg. I’m in the midst of sleep-training my 9 month old. There is nothing harder than listening to your baby cry. Especially when you are supposed to just let them be, not go and fix the problem.
I do believe that in the end, we will all be better off. He has been sleeping better (once he’s asleep) and I have been sleeping better, which helps me fight off this nagging depression.
But boy-o-boy, my heart can only take so much of this. And his little face, with tears running down it, when I go in to check on him. HOW do people do this?
I’m hoping this crying lasts only a short while, and soon he will go to sleep on his own. That is the whole point of this deal, after all. If I have to let him cry much longer, I’ll just say fooey on the whole thing and rock my sweet baby to sleep.

Two days with no “treats”. Meaning candy, pop, desserts. But I’m having a pretty intense craving for something sugary right now. Who has a fool-proof way of beating a craving?
I went one whole day with no sugar!
You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.
Story of my life, lately.
Well, sugar-free lasted about… 3 hours. That’s something, I guess. I’ll restart that one tomorrow.
I’m going to contradict myself just a little – I was saying that I want to take little baby steps to get healthy. Well, that’s not working out for me either. I’ll just make a big grand gesture now, in the hopes that something will stick. *I’m going sugar-free for the foreseeable future!*
This means no pop, candy, or desserts. I’m going to let myself have fruit and juice (only the real kind of juice, lemonade doesn’t count); completely cutting out sugar is just not an option. For me, anyways. And fruit and juice are healthy, anyways! Unlike the two packages of Oreos that I ate in the last three days.
I’ll figure out this getting healthy business sometime.
