I give up

So after raving about Emma the other night, she did a 180 the following morning. After running around naked she decided to poop in the playroom. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I was very upset. So I give up. I've read so many things, and we've tried everying. So yesterday I put her potty in her playroom. I read somewhere that if you put it in the place they play at, it will be a constant reminder. Well when I got home my husband asked it I had put the potty in the playroom, I said "yes", he said because he had gone in there and noticed it had pee in it. So he asked Emma if she had pee pee'd in the potty and she said yes. So now that's my new strategy, I'm not going to bring it up anymore, if she needs to go hopefully she'll go on her own. My husbands concern was that she wouldn't wipe herself. At this point I don't care, it would be better than her running around in a wet pullup. But I just might leave the wipes next to the potty in case she wants to use those as well.

Polar F4

For Christmas I bought my husband the Polar F11 Heart Rate Monitor watch. He loves it, so I decided to get me one. I bought the F4 for women, mine doesn't do all that Eddie's does, but it does what I want it to do.

It keeps track of my heart rate and calculates how many calories I have burned. After a workout I can see what my min and max heart rate was and how many minutes I was in the target zone.

I used for the first time last night in my Zumba class. In 59 minutes I had burned 594 calories, my max rate was 182 and I was in target zone for 32 minutes.

I can't wait unitl my Total Toning class on Saturday, it will be interesting to see how many calories I burn there.

Chocolate milk for ransom

I've been holding out on giving Emma chocolate milk. I decided to hold in for ransome. See the first words out of her mouth each morning are "I want chocolate milk". Well she is over 3 years old and in May she was completely potty trained. Well there was a major change in her life, so she completely regressed. We've kept her in pull-ups because she would not poo poo in the potty. So I kept telling her all week that if she would poo poo in the potty, she would get chocolate milk.
Well guess what! Just 10 minutes ago she told me that she had to go potty and she went specifically to do poo poo. I was so happy for her. Way to go Emma. Hope you enjoy your chocolate milk tonight.
