Friday Recap

Hey y’all!  I hope you have had a fabulous week!  It’s been busy for us!  My birthday was on Monday so my family took me to a yummy dinner after work.

Joshua moved back to school yesterday.  This mama is sad.  His new dorm is so nice though!  I know he is going to have a great year! 

Work has been crazy, too.  I’ve worked out every day this week, even on my birthday, which I totally could have used as an excuse.  🙂  What better way to start my 42nd year! So, all in all, Life is great.

Tonight we’re going to a baseball game.  One of my favorite past times.

tomorrow is mom and Lori day.  We’re getting facial (her) and massage (me), then pedicures and finally a tea party at the English Tea House.  My FAVORITE!  I like to pretend I’m fancy and demure.  Of course, I’ll probably be in yoga pants instead of a pretty dress, since we’re going straight from our pampering.

Sunday we are joining some of my friends from high school at a bar on the river to watch a band.  I’m totally excited to see old friends!!

So there’s a recap of my week, since I slacked on all of my posts.  Is anyone reading these blog posts anyway?  If you are, comment below!  Let me know I’m not talking to myself!!

I know it’s not wednesday, but What’s up??  Work is insanely busy and I’m struggling to keep up!!  I’ll be good after tomorrow and then the craziness will start again 9/3.  Yikes!

  • We’re attending a benefit tonight for a coworkers 20 year old son who has inoperable brain cancer.  It breaks my heart!!!  Morning Glory donated a bracelet stack for the silent auction.  Everything helps, right?
  • We’re loving the Peloton!  Such a great investment, and less per month than our gym membership was!
  • Is it possible to fall more in love with your spouse daily?  Aaron is just amazing and I’m so madly in love with him.  He’s a wonderful husband and makes me happier than I ever thought I could be.
  • Our boy leaves a week from today for school.  This mama is NOT ready!!!!!
  • I miss my bestie.  We haven’t got to hang out in a couple of weeks.
  • I’m exhausted.  Work is just taking it all out of me.  I have been sneak eating the past two days.  Who does that hurt?  yeah, just me.  I need to learn how to NOT stress eat.  😦

That’s all for now.  Have a great weekend!! xoxo

What’s Up, Wednesday 8/7

What’s up? Another busy week over here!

  • We bought a Peloton bike! It came last Friday and Aaron and I have been riding every morning this week. Loving it so far! I hope this helps shed these last 40lbs.
  • We have family vacation with my family this weekend. I’m excited to get back to the beach and have fun with the teens. Water park, beach day, putt putt and biking.
  • Our first set of schools start Monday. I’m hoping everything runs smoothly. I’ve been busting my butt getting everything ready.
  • My babe goes back to school in 2 weeks. My anxiety is already starting. I’m going to miss my boy.

So, what’s up with you?

What’s Up, Wednesday 7/24

What’s up!? Today is my babies 19th birthday!! Don’t roll your eyes, he’ll always be my baby. I just love the man that he is growing in to. He’s working for my district this summer and I love seeing him with his kiddos.

My weekly thoughts:

  • Coming back from vacation sucks. Lol
  • I spent Saturday down with a migraine. Like down.
  • I’m at a training today and I’m bored out of my mind. My portion isn’t until 3pm. You know the very last session. And I had to drive over an hour to get here. Booooring.
  • I restarted my Arbonne 30 Days on Monday and have birthday dinner tonight at an Italian restaurant. No bread, no dairy, etc. I love this restaurant too, so I hope they’ll work with me. Vincente’s. So good!
  • Aaron’s family reunion is this weekend too, so another occasion with tons of yummy food that I can’t eat. Lol
  • I’ve started a new workout routine in the mornings. Monday and Tuesday I started at 5am. Today I had to leave super early and I’m totally sore. Lol. Pics for proof!
  • What’s up with you??

Friday Fitness Review 4/12

Hey y’all!  It’s Finally Friday!!!  It’s been a busy week and I can’t wait to relax this weekend!  Maybe… It’s been a rough month or two for exercise.  Between hypoglycemia and my weird dizzy spells, I’d get maybe 1 workout in a week and sometimes none.  I decided this week to push through and I’ve done doubles all week.  I didn’t mean to start that, but it’s been so nice here that I’ve been taking lunchtime walks and then evening walks with hubs.  This is what my week looked like, how did you move your body??

Monday: Lunchtime walk and evening walk with Aaron.  Total 4.58 miles

Tuesday: Lunchtime walk 2.98 miles and evening walk 1.5 miles

Wednesday: Lunchtime walk 1.7 miles with a huge hill and evening walk 2.2 miles

Thursday: Lunchtime Cardio at YMCA and 5:30pm Body Pump

Friday: YMCA after work for a mix of cardio and strength.

Saturday: 8:30am Spin and 9:45am Combat

Sunday: Outside Walk with hubs

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Have you ever had a period of days or weeks where everything seems to go wrong?  That explains my last few weeks.  I’ve been having some weird health stuff.  Hypoglycemia and migraines.  The loss of my grandfather.  I’ve been letting these set backs hold me back from reaching my health goals.  I haven’t been meal planning or going to the gym.  It’s hard to go to the gym when your head and face are aching.  I’m hoping to feel better soon, so I can get back to kicking butt!

What do you do when you’ve lost motivation?  I need a pep talk!!
