This week has been nothing but a blink!
Is it really Thursday? Lately the weekends keep sneaking up on me and before I know it, I haven’t blogged all week! If you follow me on my IG account (aka my live blog) then you know I am keeping busy with Miss. RJ, personal training, being a SAHM, running a clothing shop, making some yummy dinners and taking in deep breaths when needed!
I always knew that I would love being a Stay At Home Mom, but in reality, I am still working. So what does a day in the life of nHerShoes look like these days….
3am: Wake up call to feed baby girl. She’s back down at 3:30, I crawl back into bed until my alarm goes off at 5:15am.
5:15am: WAKE UP! Enjoy first sips of coffee, read Bible (this dosen’t always happen), wash dishes and get ready for kickboxing at 6am. Hubby is on baby duty until 8am.
On mornings I can’t go back to bed, I some how find the energy to make pumpkin muffins for Hubby’s co-workers and me!
6:15am: Teach Kickboxing and get in my own GPP workout for the day!
8:30am: Breakfast of champions! Overnight Pumpkin Oats!
8:45am: Snuggle with this cutie, sing songs, read and just have morning fun!
Sometimes this is where we spend most of the day 😉
And on other days we get out for walks/runs…
Some days I change into leggings and call it getting ready…
Some days this is as close as we get to getting dressed.
RJ always looks cuter than me!
10:30am: On days where we run errands, we invite Uncle Jerry, who is a huge help! I love getting out of the house with RJ because she is a good baby and when we are at home, I tend to get caught up in wanting to clean or get things done instead of being with her… so for us, getting out is always good!
12:00pm: Once a week I try and get in a power Yoga session! My sweet friend Susie will watch RJ on her lunch break because her office is just around the corner from the studio I go to.
1:00pm: I have been enjoying yummy veggie, kale and tomato soups at home. On days that were out, I will grab a Panera Salad, Smoothie or Chipotle (trying to get better at not eating out for lunch so much).
1:30pm: MAIL comes and it’s always a good mail day when you get ice cream delivered to your door! I have always wanted to give Arctic Zero a try… I will let you know how it is soon!
1:30-4:30pm: The rest of the day is spent, playing, feeding, changing, cleaning and soaking sweet baby girl up. I don’t plan anything from after lunch until my first afternoon client.
4:30pm: RJ assists me with my evening PT clients. Love that she can come with me to work!
5:00pm: Daddy is home and takes RJ for a 2 mile run while I finish my 5:00pm and 5:30pm clients.
I love seeing my clients make such amazing transformation!!!!!
I also love that I get to work from my own home and enjoy the sunsets while we train!
5:00pm: I pull dinner from the crockpot or whip something easy up for us to enjoy. Lately, the crockpot has been such a blessing on busy days! I made this super easy pulled BBQ chicken; 1 cup BBQ sauce, 1 cup Pale Ale, 1 chopped onion, 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts all in the crock pot at 4 hours on high.
…and thanks to McCormick Gourmet Seasoning packets. I also have been making some pretty simple gourmet meals!
RJ has started to join us at the kitchen table in her Bumbo!
Can you believe she is two months today?!
7:00pm – 9:00pm: At least one night a week I like to go to a local coffee shop and work a bit undistracted while Hubby and RJ have Daddy/Daughter time. It’s amazing what you can get done in two hours when all of a sudden that is all you have! When I am home, we give RJ her bath and read her a story.
9:00pm: We feed RJ her last bottle and she goes right down! I know this is a huge blessing and this might not last, but I am soaking it allllllllll up!
Other nights at 7:00pm – 9:00pm: On nights I don’t work, the three of us and Mr.B snuggle together on the couch and just relax with a hot drink, holiday movie and comfies! I absolutely love this time of year. HOT DRINK TIME IS BACK! Now all our evenings don’t always pan out like this. Some nights I am taking RJ her bath at 7pm, barely have time to eat myself and after I put her down, we pass out!!
9:15pm: BED TIME! No doubt about it! I have to climb into bed by 9:15pm if I want to have any insanity the next day. Thankfully this schedule has worked for us so far. It isn’t always an easy day, but I have no complaints.
So far so good… but I know when this sweet girl starts being mobile allllllll will change!
