Another day, another dolla…isn’t that what they say? For me, it’s like another day to spend dollas because lately I’ve been wanting to shop like a mad woman. Good thing I live with Sam because he usually talks some cents (hehe) into me.
Deja Vu, it’s Sunday again. Harry has not been sleeping much during the day lately so I’ve been trying to entertain him, feed him (he’s had a shitty few days of feeding and I’m stressed about it but he’ll be fine), and watch him smile. This morning while feeding him, he smiled at me then did this creepy old man laugh. I almost spit out my water…anyone else down the water while breastfeeding? It’s like as soon as the kid latches on, I become extremely parched and need some H2O.
Pause. Lets go back to yesterday because Sam and I went out to lunch by ourselves and it was fun yet very odd not to have Harry (shoutout to Grandma Lynn for watching him yesterday. You’re the bees knees!). I missed him and it was only like 4 hours without him.
I was able to go for a nice hike with my dad (hello chilly weather), get a haircut because my hair has been absolute shit since giving birth, and go to my favorite restaurant…Barkers!
Back to Barks…They have the best french fries on the planet. Our food came and I downed the fries before Sam even took a bite of his wings…I’m sure our waitress judged me for cleaning my plate but IDC because I need all the cals right? Plus, I left a little ketchup so it’s not like my plate was 100% cleaned.
Oh, and I had half a margarita and felt like a Goddess. Funny what alcohol does to your mind 🙂 Every time I drink margaritas I get all these great ideas of things I’m going to do…like move back to Hudson (someone find us a cute little house on some land with chickens!), become a lunch lady so I can take care of Harry and have summers off, run 5 marathons…you get it. I believe they call it liquid courage? Maybe I’ll follow through with some of those things…except run 5 marathons because I think I’m done with road marathons…trail running is where it’s at people!
So now it’s Sunday…my fave day of the week currently especially when it’s rainy out because it makes me feel like I don’t have to do much. Except I’ll probably do a lot. Sunday’s are always for meal prepping in my house. I have like 5 tabs open right now of what to make. There’s a ranch pork chop, creamy white chicken lasagna soup, chicken florentine lasagna, french onion grilled cheese (current lead), and beef stroganoff. Give me your vote and I’ll make it! I have the worst time making decisions and I’ll probably just end up eating salad. LOL. NO.
Sunday’s also mean I get to go to the actual gym because Sam is home and can take care of Harry if needed. Due to daylight savings, Harry ate at 4:30 am which was perfect because that meant I got to the gym around 5:30 and I love getting there early. Thanks buddy for cooperating.
This morning I did the following workout (I’ll try to explain it better for you Aunt Lori):
5 sets of 3 reps: Squat Cleans (Used 65 pounds)
Superset: 5 sets of 12 reps: Single arm swing snatch (used a 20 lb dumb bell)
Then…15 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible):
5 banded pullups (used the most assisted band because my pullups are no where near to where they used to be…but that’s OK, I like a challenge)
10 pushups on a box (because my boobs hurt too much to touch the floor)
15 slamball hang to overhead
20 slow air squats
*I ended with a minute of box step ups just for funsies*
Then I did 4 intervals on the rower of 90 seconds row + 30 seconds arms only row
Then I went home and downed some coffee and oatmeal. Oatmeal has been my jam for breakfast the past couple days with skim milk, rasins, and brown sugar…keeps me regular ya know? It also brings me back to childhood because I swear my dad used to eat it like that but that could be a made up memory.
I really hope to organize the house today and get up our bathroom mirror. I need to get rid of some kitchen stuff we don’t use and go through my closet. I think I’m going to put my maternity clothes in a separate closet but that sounds like a lot of work right now.
I also want to order more holiday scented candles (like I said above, I want to spend $) from Amazon but I don’t think Sam will be too thrilled with me. I’ll keep you updated on my candle sitch.
Okay friends, that’s today’s update on my super exciting life. Let me know your vote for dinner.
Thanks for tuning in…until next time 🙂
