I have seen these posts going around and thought it sounded like a fun post to write and I am all about some FUN!
Training the Hubs
This year, hubby asked me to help him with a new workout plan that included running, biking, and weight lifting. I wish he would do some GPP with me, but he wanted to try a plan with more weight lifting. So I decided to go with the NROL Supercharged book for men and women. I am really liking it so far and I will keep you updated on his progress. I am secretly hoping he will write a blog called nHisShoes!
I got my hair done on Monday from my awesome friend Jamie and I asked her to bring back the blond! I missed it so much and I desperately needed change. Honestly, I almost chopped it off. She said “Why donâ€™t you straighten it? it will be fun and sassy!” She was right. I like the straight. Letâ€™s see if I can pull off doing it myself.
This little peanut wakes up between 5:30am and 6am. When she wakes up she is so happy and cuddly I just canâ€™t get enough! I had to put on her owl hat one last time before she grows out of it.
My man knows me so well. After the race he got me a bouquet of wild flowers. I donâ€™t LOVE flowers, because they are expensive and die so fast, but I love wild flowers because they seem to last longer and they are just beautifully imperfect.
RJ and I are starting to get more of a routine down and the one thing that she can not get enough of is Mamma or Daddy pushing her around in her little car. Itâ€™s so cute to watch her giggle and get all excited the minute she getâ€™s into it. Itâ€™s also a pretty fun workout and I am pretty sure itâ€™s the only way I get in my 10,000 steps everyday!
Yes, I still wear real clothes. I know most people would love to live in their PJs and workout clothes, but I am not like the others. I honestly love throwing an outfit on everyday, it refreshes me and helps me feel more awake! Now, letâ€™s be honest we do have pajama parties over here frequently, but its not an everyday occasion.
Daveâ€™s Killer Bread
I remember when I was in Portland staying with a friend she had this bread that I just fell in love with. I never saw it in our local grocery store (Vons)Â until this week. I was squealing with JOY! I think my hubby was a little worried. Itâ€™s so good and I love that itâ€™s all natural and has the best texture ever! I hear itâ€™s at Costco now too!
I have been enjoying a lot of the meals off of the New Years Shred Meal plan as well as just simple healthy dinners. We have come up with a new meal plan for our family and I love it. Mondays: Italian Night, Tuesdays: Taco Night, Wednesdays: CrockPot, Thursdays: Community Group, Fridays: Date Night or Build your own pizza night. Keeping it simple yet clean is what itâ€™s all about!
This week I decided to start RJ on a regular naptime schedule, which means we need to stick close to the house. I could tell she was ready for longer periods of sleep and time in her crib. I love the website Sleepy Planet,Â it gave me a good understanding of what amount of sleep babies need. RJ wakes up at 5:30, goes back down around 6:30 for a little nap, then down at 9:30 for her first nap and 2:30pm for her second. Well at least thatâ€™s what I am shooting for. I am listening to her more than anything. The best thing about naptimes is time to ready my Bible, stare out the window, journal, write my to-do list (that will never get finished), eat fresh oranges from our tree, and just BE STIIL.
Cooking with RJ
I am not gonna lie, I am that crazy mom that talks to her baby all day long. When making dinner together, I pretend we are on the Cooking Channel and speak out everything I am doing while I do it. I have always wanted to be on a cooking show and now I am.Â Â She is the best Sous chef!
I have realized that I have to get out of the house at least once a day. Not far, but out! I try and plan a park day at least once a week with a friend. We bring our lunches, catch up on life, and play with the kiddos. Itâ€™s free and fun for all. Thank goodness we live in So Cal where it has been in the upper 70â€™s.
Since the marathon I have only taught kickboxing once and just did a little. I am resting this week, even though my body is feeling great! I havenâ€™t been too sore but I know that rest is something I NEED! I will be back at it on Saturday with a bike ride.
I am getting super excited about he Refresh Summit coming up in March. Planning and praying with our core team has been such a blessing. I cannot wait to have you all up and have a great time of retreat together. I am loving what God is already doing through this summit and I canâ€™t wait to see all that unfolds.
