Weekly Updates: 04/14/14 – 05/04/14

I know…. it has been approximately forever since I posted a weekly update, there has been so much traveling on Sundays that I just haven’t been able to get to my computer to write it all down, so here is a condensed version.

04/14 – 04/20

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I went to Pure Barre. Thursday evening we headed to CT for Easter weekend, which included a few walks and lots of important family time…and of course B being very cute.

04/21 – 04/27

I went to Pure Barre on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. We are still having sleep issues with B man so I ended up cancelling some classes so I could be the one getting up at all hours of the night with him. Again we jetted to CT for the weekend on Saturday for a memorial. I am glad I was able to get a good number of workouts in, but I don’t regret the ones I didn’t, family will always be #1.

04/28 – 05/04

Pure Barre was Wednesday and Saturday, not great on my part. B was getting a cold and his sleep is even worse during that time, so I knew I would need to not be able to just rally in the morning, because the daytime would also be rough and I would need all the energy I could muster. We headed to CT…again but it was an amazing weekend of friend, family and fun. I don’t hate going down there all the time, but I do not love the 2 hour drive.

 

In terms of food lately, I haven’t been talking about it, because I haven’t always been super impressed with myself. We don’t eat terrible at home and we don’t eat out a lot, BUT my downfalls have been more carbs than usual, waaaay more, and chocolate. Those two things have always been comfort items and so I am not surprised, but I can’t keep them 100% out of my house either. I need to get better at the will power, and better at saying no to the piece of chocolate or piece of bread, etc…

 

How do you say no to your comfort foods?

Before we get to today’s post, I just want to say there has been too much loss in the past year, in the city of Boston and in my personal life. Many thoughts and prayers to the Boston Fire Department and to the families and friends of the two firefighters who lost their lives doing their job. Thank you to all first responders, everywhere, without you wouldn’t be safe.

We just watched Frozen for the first time, and I think that Let It Go is not the best song on the soundtrack.

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted one, so lets get right to it shall we?

When I open the instructions to any toy B gets or any piece of furniture that Nick and I have to put together.

When someone says a word that will get B’s attention and then he will become a begging machine {aka words like ice cream, cookies, or outside when it is dark out (we don’t have a street light on our road)}

I love taking B to swim lessons, but getting out of a bathing suit and into the workout clothes I was wearing previously (because I went straight from the gym to swim) is not fun AT ALL.

When I read “martyr mom” posts on facebook or twitter, I get it you’re perfect all the time.
