Lack of Motivation

Back in the day when I dreamt of motherhood, I thought I would do it all. Bring home the bacon, make homecooked meals for every meal, keep a tidy home, and look like one hot B because I definitely wouldn't skip a workout. I hadn't skipped a workout from the time I was 14 until I was pregnant so surely it wouldn't be a big deal.

Well . . . . it turns out I can't do it all.

Or maybe I can. I am just lazy. I have been cooking, but the meals aren't all that nutritious and I can assure you the ONLY reason I do it is because I'm broke. The best thing about restaurants is that not only does someone make your food, but they clean it up too. Yeah baby, that's what I like.

I am trying to look like one hot B and it's going not so bad. It is summer and I'm getting a little darker in the tan department (I don't do tanning beds due to the risk of cancer and looking like an Oompa Loompa or a piece of rawhide) and we all know tan fat looks better than white fat. Also after my cleanse I have been eating pretty decently. I just struggled through Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30. Never in my life would I thought I could say something like this, but it doesn't bother me a whole lot. Back in the day I wouldn't have been able to handle this, but to be honest, I've got much bigger fish to fry than the dangler.

Cleaning. Don't know the meaning of it. I'm just not into it. I know that means nothing, but I just can't make myself. Let's think of the cleaning I should be doing right this second:

1. Bathroom and babies bath
2. Dishes
3. Kitchen
4. Mopping
5. I can't see the floor in the office anymore
6. I have been dying to do the babies new playroom since Grandma left, but it's still as it was
7. If anyone saw my personal bathroom the babies would probably get taken by social services

Yep. F- in the cleaning department.

So basically I just bring home the bacon and play with babies. The rest I do if I feel like it.






  1. Hi, new follower here, I think its totally ok to bring home the Bacon and play with babies, its what I do too. Looks like we have a lot in common, ivf & b/g twins, mine were born 5/13/10. Your babes are adorable.

  2. I have one baby and I struggle to get anything done other than a walk. My LO takes his afternoon nap in the stroller. So kudos for you for getting anything done. :)

  3. That ain't a lack of motivation, that's life. And it's ok. I'm home 6 days a week and I don't work out and my house is a mess, so I think you are doing just FINE!

  4. Cooking and cleaning can wait 'til tomrrow, 'cause babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow.
    So, quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep, I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep.

    hokey, but true!

  5. Tell the dust balls to stay in their prospective (I have no idea if that's the right word but it sounded good) corners till babies are older...they are only little once, and when they are bigger and can push a vacuum around you'll have even more time :P

  6. Why is it cleaning is so hard to get to all of the sudden? I used to be such a clean freak! Now there are rings in the toilet!! Cat fur/dust bunnies range freely across my kitchen floor! It's chaos and madness! But I'd rather be holding my baby ANYTIME! :)

  7. I hear you about the lack of motivation! I'm right there with you sometimes! I love the pics! They are adorable!!
    I wanted to thank you for having my link because you are one of my top referring sites! ;-)

  8. I can totally relate in the sucking at cleaning department, especially since I opened up my hair accessory business. My husband is not amused at all (read as "he wants to kill me.")
