hubby and i had a heated talk about all of this and he told me that i was being hard on adam about the trampoline, omg, he just doesnt get it, limits and boundries for adams own good. i personally think that a child should have lots of fun and do things but not in excess, lets face it, adam has autism and extreme ocd that he has had to be medicated over. i think that after about 30 minutes going as hard as he can on the little trampoline in the living room is long enough especially when the loud verbal stimming starts (usually after about 20 minutes or so) and i have placed my hand over his chest after he has jumped hard like that for about 30 m inutes and it feels like it is going to beat out of his chest. he loves the trampoline but he is on mehtylin and risperdal, methylin is a liquid rittalin, a stimulant that when used with kids that are ADD and ADHD has an adverse reaction/slow them down, but, i see that when adam is on the trampoline, he cant stop after a certain amount of time, when the verbal stimming starts you can look at him and tell he is stressing but wont/cant stop, dad doesnt think its a problem, i think if allowed to go that hard for extended periods of time for any child is not safe. oh, and if its time to get ready for school or supper or anything then adam gets mad if he has to get off the trampoline and dad says i am too hard on him about it, what is wrong with DAD??? adam would jump the majority of the time if allowed, on days he is home all day i try to keep it down to no more then 3 times a day and on school days one in the morning IF he has time, depends on how much whining he does about getting ready for school, lol. once in the evening. he has many other things he likes to do and if allowed will get stuck on one thing, and this is one thing he would love to be allowed to get stuck on.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
