Rory just finished reading It and now he wants to watch the movie.
I watched It when I was a kid and it scared the shit out of me. I’m curious to see how I’d respond to it as an adult.
I might spend the whole movie crying while curled in the fetal position. We’ll see tomorrow night I guess.
I used to watch the scariest stuff as a kid and young adult and now I can barely stand thrillers let alone horrors. I must be getting soft in my old age! Or having children has given me a different perspective.
Either way, I’m looking forward to stuffing my face with popcorn and snuggling with Ror tomorrow evening while I try not to cry! :)
Today has just been wonderful!
Ror stayed up with Liam last night so I was able to get some sleep! I got 5 1/2 hours of sleep before waking up to nurse him and then another 2 1/2 hours of sleep at which point I was actually ready to get up! I’m NEVER ready to get up so that was huge!
I was the first one awake this morning and got to enjoy a shower in peace (an extremely rare occurrence for me), I made the girls chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, fed Liam, hit the gym for an excellent chest session, made homemade caramel for the chocolate caramel oatmeal bars I made for Bible study tonight, got to hang out and snuggle with the kids…. It’s just been lovely!!
The icing on the cake was benching 100lbs again and the sweet note and picture my girls made me!!
I seen your post about having trouble losing the last but of baby fat from being pregnant. Are you tracking your inches too? You may be losing fat but building muscles, and from your post it sounds like you are, which will keep the scale up but not mean you're not losing what you wanna lose. Muscle weighs more than fat. I obviously don't know but would have to see you discouraged for nothing. :)
Thank you kind anon!!!
I am tracking my inches, so you’re right, I am building muscle as well! I’m just impatient and want the scale to reflect my fat loss and sometimes forget that more important things are happening.
You are incredibly lovely for sending this message and I kind of love you for this!
Mix everything but the chicken in a big bowl leaving a little bit of cheese to sprinkle on top before cooking.
Put 3 heaping spoonfuls of the sauce in a tortilla, add a good handful of the chicken, roll, and repeat with the rest of the tortillas. There should be some filling left over; add a little more milk to thin it even more and and then spoon it evenly over the enchiladas. Top with the remaining cheese and bake for 15 minutes at 375*!!!
They’re amazing but in my opinion are even better reheated the next day. :)
I have chicken cooking in the crock pot and it smells amazing!
I’m gonna shred it up and use some of it for enchiladas tonight and the rest will be smothered in BBQ sauce to be eaten with rice as my lunch for the rest of the week.
So easy but oh so good!
One of my favorite things to do in the evenings is plan out what I’m going to eat tomorrow.
What can I say?! I LOVE food!
It’s fun trying to see how much peanut butter I can eat while still hitting my protein goal.
Liam is 10 months old as of last Wednesday. I honestly thought I’d be wearing my pre pregnancy jeans by now. These last 10lbs don’t seem to want to budge. I am eating 80% healthy with the occasional splurge. I don’t go overboard, I don’t treat myself everyday, I keep it moderate, I’m killing myself in my workouts, and I’ve added in sprints 6 days a week. The scale is still not budging.
I’m by no means even close to giving up or admitting defeat. I refuse to lower my cals anymore because Liam is still mostly breastfed and I will not sacrifice my supply for the sake of vanity. I’m just gonna keep on and remind myself that slow progress is better than no progress. While the scale isn’t budging I am having some NSV (non scale victories) I’m getting stronger and certain muscles are getting bigger so there’s that little thing that helps keeps me motivated and encouraged to keep pressing on.
All you other mama’s out there in the same boat as I am, hang in there! Don’t give up. It will happen. Give it time. Your body did an amazing thing, please don’t lose sight of that!
Nikki’s class got their ballet costumes today and THEY’RE SO FREAKING ADORABLE I CAN’T EVEN HANDLE IT!!!!!!!!!!
Another awesome thing that happened today was Liam actually stayed in the child care and let me finish my whole workout!!! That hasn’t happened in 6 months! I’ve tried leaving him in there during that time but I’ve been called down to get him within 10 minutes every single time. Not today!! He stayed for a whole hour while I destroyed my legs! I’m so proud of him! If this keeps up I’ll be able to go workout while Ror is at work and can actually spend my evenings hanging out with him instead of at the gym! :D
Those pork chops smell AMAZING!!!! I don’t want to wait another hour to eat. *cries*
I put them in the crock pot and then smothered them in cream of mushroom soup and they just smell so freaking good it’s ridiculous!
I’m making creamy rice, mashed potatoes, green beans, and sliced peaches for the sides.
HURRY UP AND COOK SO I CAN STUFF MY FACE!
Got the kids’ Easter baskets stuffed and the eggs filled for the egg hunt tomorrow!!
We were so busy today doing other things we forgot to dye the eggs so I think the girls and I will do that after lunch tomorrow :)
Productive days are the best!! I feel like I can get so much more done on the days I don’t do school with the girls.
Rory came home on his lunch break and got the crib set up in our room. It’s set up next to our bed like a side car so I can nurse Liam easily at night but able to actually snuggle with my husband and have sex without worrying about waking up a little person or that little person rolling off the bed. Gonna try it tonight and if it works that’ll be the first time we’ve done the deed in our bed in over a year and a half! Don’t get me wrong, I love shower sex, but you have to actually take a shower to have it and I don’t like scheduling my sexy time around when I feel like showering, or planning my showers around sexy time. It’s gotten old.
Now I’m heading off to deep clean the bathroom, sweep and vacuum (nothing makes a mess of my floors like kids eating popcorn does), wash diapers, and getting my kitchen counters cleaned off and organized. I love having a picked up home but damn it can get messy fast!
I just saw a ad for men’s beards to give a “salt&pepper” look. We live in a shallow consumerist culture that will sell anything to make a buck. Don’t worry about your girls though, you’ll teach them that nobody can sell them beauty and they’ll be islands in a sea of…
Your belief in my parenting is overwhelming. Thank you! <333
I just saw a commercial for a gel that eliminates your ‘feminine odor’.
Because apparently we’re not supposed to have natural body odors anymore.
Because apparently a woman’s vagina is supposed to smell like daisies or some shit.
I can’t believe this is the kind if crap my girls are going to have to grow up with. :-/
