Good morning! Skye was obviously not ready to wake up and start the day yesterday morning after eating. She just wanted to climb right back in bed. I completely understand.
Brooke is on a pink boots streak. I wouldn’t be surprised if she wants to keep her streak with these boots going throughout this summer too. PS I don’t know where she learned how to pose like this because I sure don’t know how to do the leg pop.
We did the school drop-off thing. Brooke was pretty bummed to say goodbye to Knox. They had a fun weekend together.
I went out for a 2.5 mile run @ 8:54 average pace. It felt so nice outside that I sat on the stairs for a few minutes afterwards. All of the snow (other than the snowmen) is gone… hallelujah!
Random thought from my run… there were a bunch of trash cans out while I was running and I couldn’t even smell them. When I was pregnant I hated running on trash day so much because of the smell, it made me so sick. I don’t miss my hyperactive smelling abilities anymore.
While I was out on my run I received this text from Andrew:
And one more chin/cheek update on Skye before we move along.
Andrew left on his run and then spent pretty much every minute (besides dinner) of the day studying. He has a huge test today that he is taking so if you have a second, send him some positive thoughts. `
I love that Skye is excited to see us now and that she is much more interactive… for that first 6 weeks I felt like all I was to her was her food source (okay, that’s still probably the main reason she smiles when she sees me now too… FOOD;).
Lunch yesterday included three eggs, one sweet potato, onions and a bunch of spinach to go along with some bacon, toast and raspberries. I can’t get enough of these types of meals.
Later on in the afternoon Candice came over and picked Brooke up to go play with her girls. Skye needed a nap. My to-do list had about 4059 things on it (including writing a better blog post than this one ha;) but I decided there is nothing wrong with taking some time to relax. Skye has helped me to slow down and realize I don’t need to be busy 100% of the time. Rest is good.
I eventually put her down to nap and when I went out to the kitchen I found this last little sliver of brownie left. Andrew told me that this is how he shows that he is thinking about me ha… he wanted me to have the last bite;)
We picked up Brooke and then we were on our way to Costco to pick up some food (we were out of everything) and somehow Costco didn’t happen…
We realized we were too hungry and too tired to shop so we stopped at a new pizza place by Costco instead ha.
Maybe grocery shopping will happen today or maybe I’ll end up eating another one of these pizzas because it was amazing.
We all hung out for a minute on the couch before Brooke went to bed.
And then the three of us watched the Bachelor (well, Andrew studied and Skye was busy rolling her eyes over all of the drama).
Our Bachelor watching snack… I found some candy from Christmas. Red and green gummy bears, the only two delicious flavors of gummy bears.
SOOOOO…. I went to one of Megan’s bootcamp classes last week (I modified a bunch of things and I was STILL sore for a few days afterwards). I’m going to continue going to her classes once a week! I am really excited to gain some strength and I NEED a group setting (and Megan telling me what to do) to get going!
Along the lines of strength training classes, I wanted to ask you—> Have you tried Orange Theory? I got a coupon for a free class so I’m wondering if I should go and try it out next week. I’m not the best at getting out of my fitness comfort zone (hence why I love our sport—> run in a straight line = happiness for me) but I think I’m going to try it out. Anything I should know before going?!
PS I think both kids have better push-up form than I do currently so I’m hoping to work on that at bootcamp;)
I have a cough that is bugging me but I feel like I can’t do anything to help it since I am breastfeeding! Anyone have any ideas of something that would help? I have a humidifier right next to my bed but that’s about all I have done so far!
Ever tried Orange Theory? What did you think? Should I try it?
What was the last NEW TO YOU fitness class/activity/thing that you have tried?
Do you have a specific day that you do laundry or do you try to keep up with it throughout the week?
-I used to do it a specific day but now with Skye, I am doing a load every day otherwise the laundry pile gets too out of control.
