I was pretty excited about my ride yesterday. A few people recommended that I try out Robin’s Greatest Showman ride, and I loved it. The songs from that movie will always be my favorite. I wasn’t expecting it to be a hard workout, but it was and I hit a new 30 minute PR during the ride. I finished up with a 20 minute back and chest workout and then some stretching. PS Andrew and I were reading online about how people cheat on the leaderboard… what in the world?!
I feel that snow is in the near future, so we are trying to be outside as much as possible now.
We went on a hunt for worms.
I need to know whether the stories Skye tells me about her day at school are true or not… If they are true, her preschool class needs to be part of a reality tv show.
(Huge fan of cardigans these days)
I enjoyed this podcast episode while I was out and about while Brooke and Skye were in school.
And then we went to the book fair, which is QUITE the event for these kids.
We then went shopping for Beck’s birthday, and Skye seemed to think that Beck would love all of the toys that she would love to get;)
My monthly rotation: One week I am very into cooking, one week we eat out a bunch, one week we eat quick Costco and Trader Joe’s meals (my favorites are here), and one week we eat pancakes/cereal every night. Currently on our Costco week.
The World Series was watched…
Off for a run with Emilee this morning… I swear our bodies are always in sync and it’s fun to come back from our injuries together.
I was told this, so I thought I should share it here too if anybody reading needs it—> STOP SHOULDING YOURSELF (haha and yes, this is supposed to sound like something else).
How many times a day do you find yourself saying, ‘I SHOULD do/be _______’ ?
The thing is, you are doing enough. You are enough. So when you see someone else’s life and feel like you should be doing ______ too, stop shoulding yourself. Stop putting pressure on yourself to do more or to be different.
You are doing a fantastic job with all of the things you are doing.
Let’s all stop the shoulds, keep moving forward in the direction we want to go, and let go of the rest.
I tell my kids this every night when I put them to bed—> ‘I love you just the way you are’ (thanks to Mr. Rogers), and I’m learning to feel the same way about myself too!
Have a tip of the day that you can share with us?
Any favorite quick meals from Costco that you love? I’m always looking for more.
Have you been watching the World Series?
What are you reading right now? I would really love a good book recommendation!
