I’ve got another Skye/postpartum update for you—> HERE!!!
Thursday already?!? I actually had to look on the calendar to see what day it was when I was writing this post ha.
With school going again we are all a little bit more tired and rushing around more in the morning;) Even Skye was yawning. I’m just happy I remembered to get Brooke back to school because I was worried that we would get to February and I would finally remember that she should be in school (my brain isn’t functioning quite like normal yet).
Another mini treadmill walk while Skye kept me entertained.
After my walk I did the moves HERE from Becky as part of my postpartum recovery! Trying to do things right this time around! And then we snuggled while watching GoPro videos on Youtube ha.
Later on in the day Brooke and I went out, just the two of us! I fed Skye right before we left and timed it to get back home right when she would be hungry/wake up again.
We ran into Costco to grab three things that we forgot to get the other day and Brooke was pretty happy about the sample lineup.
While we were there we ran into JENNY!! Jenny (Running on Life) and I have emailed and commented back and forth with each other but had never met until yesterday. At Costco. It’s pretty easy to find me if I do leave the house.. I’m either at Costco or Target.
We then met up with Megan for a quick lunch at one of our favorites. Brooke was showing Megan how she is almost as tall as her!
180 Tacos for soup and salad!
We then got ready to go out on our daily walk (temperatures please stay nice for a while)…
Knox came home and then we had dinner!
Andrew made these salmon grilled cheese sandwiches… at first I was skeptical but they actually tasted really good!
The kids just had normal grilled cheese for dinner. When Brooke asked for jam on top of her sandwich I was very proud (that is something that we do in my family and I’m happy to see it continue to go through the generations)!
*More than ever we are eating ALL of the vegetables and much better than I normally eat. A year or two ago my coach would tell me in regards to my nutrition—> Junk in = Junk OUT! With this little phrase he was talking about how taking in junk (nutrition wise) all of the time would make it so that my workouts/running weren’t great. This phrase is really sticking to me right now with my breastfeeding though… I don’t know how it all works scientifically with what I am eating going to Skye but I just feel like I really need to be eating good foods to give her the best (I wish I could have done better with that during pregnancy but only 3 foods sounded good to me so it didn’t). It might not even be a thing but I’ll just keep telling myself it is. Hopefully this carries over to my running too and taking in less junk will make for some quality workouts again!
*I am so excited that The Bachelor has started again. Also, there is a girl from my city this season on the show… I hope she makes it to the hometown dates so that they show off my area on tv because as you know, I love it here.
*How does she sleep with one leg propped up like that?
*I came up with an adult lunchable snack and it is amazing (all from Costco of course)… pretzel thins, turkey and a cheese slice. I think I had about 20 of these yesterday.
*Anyone doing the lululemon/strava challenge? You have until January 15th to either complete 40km or 80km of running. I’m not sure if the prize is the same as last year (I can’t find anywhere that says what the prize is) BUT LAST YEAR they gave a pair of shorts or tank out if you did the 40km and both if you did the 80km! I didn’t do it last year (I didn’t know about it till it was almost over) but a bunch of friends did and they got some amazing free clothes because of it!
*The President of Our Church passed away late on Monday night. He was an amazing man and I thought I would share a few of my favorite quotes from him:
“May we ever choose the harder right, instead of the easier wrong.”
“Of this be sure: you do not find the happy life- you make it.”
“We will never regret the kind words spoken or the affection shown. Rather, our regrets will come if such things are omitted from our relationships with those who mean the most to us.”
“We can’t direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.”
“Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.”
One last reminder about a new post over on the baby blog—> HERE!!!!
