–My most favorite moment this week was watching Zoe wave!!! We have been trying to get her to wave for months now and one morning I said “wave bye bye to daddy” like I do every morning and she actually did it!!! She has done it every morning since. She also waves at you when she wants your attention.
–I bought these Boon teething spoons last week and put some frozen strawberries in them for Zoe to try. I think she liked it but was a little confused. I also have this mesh feeder that I put watermelon in the other day and she really seemed to like that!
–I knocked two things off my list that have been nagging at me for a very long time. One was my eye doctor appointment. I have been saying for the last four years that I need to go back to the eye doctor. I hadn’t been since 2011 and I knew my glasses needed to be updated to a stronger prescription. After my appointment, I ran over to the car wash real quick while I was sans Zoe. I have been meaning to do that since last July when I bought it. Oops. Thankfully my MIL watched Zoe while I did all that and I felt so accomplished!!! She got to play with her cousin while she was over there, so she didn’t seem to miss me.
–It’s back. My workout mojo is finally back you guys!!! I like to keep it real around here and be as honest with you as I can. I struggled so hard for months after having Zoe with the way I looked and felt about myself. I know I just had a baby and my body did this most incredible thing. And I had major surgery where my ab muscles were literally cut apart and I have a healthy, amazing baby and blah blah blah. But that doesn’t change the fact that I feel like I am carrying around a sack of flour on my midsection. A saggy sack. A mommy pouch. I hate it. But I was too tired and overwhelmed to do anything about it for months. Sure my eating was alright, definitely could be better…but that sack wasn’t going anywhere without the workouts. I knew that, and yet I couldn’t force myself to get up early enough to do them before my day started.
I don’t know what happened, I suppose it was the realization that I have been working from home 90% of the time over the last 8 months and I could have been taking advantage of not having to get ready and have that dreaded commute and really focus on my workouts in the mornings. But when Zoe finally started sleeping through the night, I opted for sleep too. But now that I am closing in on rocking our whole schedule that we have going in another week, I decided to start practicing my new schedule and that included adding my workouts back to my mornings. I have to wake up earlier than I can even discuss right now. UGHHHH. But, I have faithfully done it this week and it feels so good to be back!!! We have started sending sweaty selfies in the ahole bro group that I am in and I remind myself that in the mornings when I want to hit snooze. I know if I don’t send them a picture of my workout, they are going to think I went off the deep end again.
Favorite Recipe: I tried making cinnamon butter keto cookies yesterday, and I wasn’t a fan. They don’t really have much flavor and sort of had a weird after taste. I am going to try to make these instead.
Favorite Lust: I have a thing for Y necklaces and lariats lately. I really have a simple collection of timeless pieces right now, and there are a few that I want to add to be complete. I have a birthday wish list started, and I am adding this one to it! How fun is this layered look??? Perfect to add a little dimension to any outfit.
Linking up with Amanda. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
