I finished my streak for today and now I’m eating a bowl of pumpkin pie ice cream Ror dished up for me and it’s pretty freaking amazing.
Workout today was pretty good. I don’t know if y’all have noticed but I didn’t increase any of the weight this week. I struggled with the weights so much last week I decided I needed another week at them before going up. They were still hard but I’m excited to go up again next week.

Alrighty you wonderful people you, I’m off to finish my ice cream and watch the boys while snuggling with my son next to the fire!
What the crap?!
I had a steak and potato for dinner and now I’m so gassy it’s RIDICULOUS OH MY GOSH!
I can’t even stand being around myself right now.
Was it the steak or the potato though?
I have no idea.
Also, I chopped my hair off.
I have mom hair now.
My husband LOVES it though which is what makes it worth it.
I miss long hair.
I’m in bed sick today.
I’m not sure what I have though. A sore throat and vomiting don’t generally go together. It’s not the flu, I don’t have a fever/I’m not achy everywhere, and I’ve never thrown up once, let alone several times, from a cold.
Ror said it could be step so if I’m still sickly tomorrow I’m going to go to the dr and get checked out.
Needless to say, no lifting or streaking for me today. :(
Ror dropped the girls and I off at the ballet studio while he and Liam went to go buy the tires. 5 miles down the road a hose in the transmission broke so they’re stuck at an auto store. They guys that work there were able to find the problem but all the mechanics are busy so they can’t work on it so the girls and I are stuck at the studio and I need to feed Liam. :-/
My sister in love Hollie offered to grab Liam and bring him to me! And my sister Holly said she’d come get the girls and I to hang out at her apartment after their lessons are over. Depending on how long it takes Ror to get it fixed I might take them both up on their offers.
Ugh, it’s always something isn’t it?
At least it’s something that can be fixed.
I’ll do my mile tonight.
The girls have dentist appointments, we’re going to get a Christmas tree, the girls have ballet, picking up some studded snow tires, and then grocery shopping before heading home.
It’s a long day.
I had to pull out my fuzzy snow boots today too due to it snowing 4 inches while I was at the gym!
Finished my streak for today and now I’m makin cookies!
They smell delicious and I’ve already eaten 3 cookies worth of dough.
The last week I’ve found me asking myself this more and more.
'Do I want this or do I want to rock my bikini next summer'
It’s a hard decision!
I think right now the sweets are winning and then come Jan when the holidays are over the bikini will win.
Am I vain for wanting to rock my bikini again?
Is it wrong?
My sister in love/sister out law is going to do the LiveFit program in March, after her son is about 7 months old. We did it together last year so I’m thinking I might join her and do it again. If I do it again I won’t follow the meal plan or the suggested amount of calories but I’d definitely make the turkey meat balls and the protein bars. They were pretty delicious.
After the craziness that was yesterday it’s been so nice to just chill at home today.
I played with my new laptop, played with the kids, went to the gym and worked shoulders, and now I’m getting ready to run my mile before making cookies for church tomorrow :)
Started my streak today. It was brutal but I managed to take 30 seconds off my mile.
I took a couple pictures before hand to see if I make a dent in my body composition by the new year from running a mile a day and lifting 4 days a week. :)
I. Am. So. Sore.
I haven’t lifted weights 3 days in a row in over a year. I enjoyed it but man, I am sore!
My workout yesterday was pretty good. I tried benching 70lbs and had to bump it down to 65 because there was no way I could so more than 2 reps. Maybe next week I’ll get it.
I love days like today.
Ror is in the kitchen playing Christmas music while he makes breakfast; chocolate chip waffles and bacon. I’m sitting on the couch feeding Liam, Jenny is coloring, and Nikki is playing on the computer. The sun is shining in the living room and even though it’s freezing outside it’s a gorgeous day.
After lunch Paul and Lori are coming over and we’re going to play cards against humanity and things and they’re bringing a zombie game and this evening Rory’s brother Sam and his wife Haylee will be joining us along with Rory’s brother and co-worker Joe and his girlfriend and co-worker Jana!
Ror showed me a pic from last year when my hair was shorter and mentioned that he wouldn’t mind if I cut it again.
I miss my long hair and am working on growing it out, he loves my hair long but likes it short just a little bit more.
I’ve wanted to try blonde for a couple years and was thinking if I cut my hair and then bleach it it could be a fun change. Then if I hate it or when I’m ready to not be blonde anymore I can go to red.
Ror is on board with the idea so I’m going to mull it over for another month and if it still sounds appealing in Jan then I’m going to go in and do it.
Change can be fun.
Plus, it’s only hair. If I hate it I’ve wanted to try a buzz cut as well. ;)
I never seemed to wonder before, but do the girls have a little “school” area or do they do their work in the living room/kitchen table/their rooms? Do they not get distracted easily? :)
Jenny does a bit of school on the computer each day but other than that they do their school at the dining room table. I have it set up with all their school stuff in there so it feels kind of like a ‘classroom’ so when we’re there doing work they know to focus on what we’re doing. It just depends on the day and how much energy they have as to how easily distracted they get lol. If they just can’t seem to focus I usually let them have about 15 minutes to play and run around for a bit and that helps.
Not by a long shot! I like posting pictures of my house in it’s ‘natural’ state because seriously, while my house is usually clean, it’s rarely picked up. And by clean I mean swept and vacuumed with the counters and table wiped down. I haven’t dusted in a year. No joke. And I think I scrub my bathroom every couple weeks. It could use it once a week but I usually forget until it’s obvious it needs to be scrubbed, which is every couple of weeks lol. But hey, it’s my house and I love it and anyone is always more than welcome to stop by. I don’t feel like I need to have it spotless for company. My house is like I am, what you see is exactly what you get :)
Today hasn’t been as productive as I’d hoped it would be. We left for the gym at 11:30 so I could go to the first part of the bands and ball before hitting the weights. Then Ror decided we needed to run to Newport afterward to buy some snacks for tomorrow since dinner is going to be a couple hours later than we were planning due to waiting for Sam to get off work. Which is fine. I’m so glad he and his wife are coming.
So we ended up having lunch at the deli and then running to Newport and we just got home and it’s already 4.
Thankfully dinner is in the crock pot so all I have to focus on is sweeping and vacuuming and I’ll clean the bathroom after dinner. :)
Workout today was good!
I spent 30 minutes in the bands and ball class and worked with the bands and did 3 30 second planks at the end.
Then my workout was
