weekend shenanigans


I cant believe we are heading in to the last full week of January. Seems crazy!

This weekend was pretty low key. Chris had some errands he needed to run with his dad on Saturday, so Zoe and I had a little girls day out. After being cooped up in the house all last week, I wanted to get us both out somewhere. We went to Trader Joe’s to do most of our grocery shopping this week. After that, we walked around The Summit a little since it was so beautiful outside. It was Zoe’s lunch time, so we headed to Urban Cookhouse for lunch. I ordered the berry salad and Zoe got the grilled cheese with a side of fruit. Girlfriend loves her fruit and every last bite of it was gone before she even stared on her sandwich.

After Zoe went to bed that night, I finished reading my book and cleaned up around the house a little. Chris and I played a round of Mario Kart and I promptly passed out there after.

Sunday we headed out to Target and Best Buy, and spent the rest of the day lounging around the house.We caught up on a few of our shows and watched another episode of Blue Bloods. We decided we really like that one.

Zoe woke up with some cold symptoms and I am still trying to decide if I want to take her to the doctor today or not. I feel like it is a decision I have to make about every two weeks lately. Dirty daycare babies.

There are only nine more days left of my Whole 30!!!! I am feeling damn good and most of my cravings have subsided. I can tell that my pants fit better and I have more energy. I am trying to decide what I want to do once Whole 30 is over. I want to maintain my weight loss and continue on, but I also want to enjoy my life and have some coffee creamer. The balance struggle is real, am I right?! Are you doing any diet/fitness challenges for February? Let me know, I could use some inspiration.

Linking up with Biana. Hope you have a wonderful week.

    Love Zoe in her little red dress.
    Poor baby. Daycares just need to be sanitized like a lab every night.
    Is there not an option for any kind of creamer for the Whole 30

    I need to start something in February. January has been a shitshow for me! UGH! I hope Zoe feels better. Poor thing can’t seem to catch a break!

    I can’t believe there’s already only one weekend left this month! And yay for almost getting to the end of Whole 30! Your salad looks delicious and it sounds like you and Zoe had such a fun and productive shopping/lunch day! I hope Zoe is feeling better soon!

    Yay for you on the Whole 30 – that’s no joke! And it is hard to transition back into “normal” eating afterwards . . . sometimes I think the strict rules just make it easy and mindless. And I miss creamer too when I’m being healthy – it just tastes SO MUCH BETTER!!!

    Target and Trader Joes? YES please! Sorry Zoe isn’t feeling well, Serena gave us a scare over the weekend and will be at the pediatrician today. Dirty daycare babies for sure! Get it girl in the home stretch of Whole30, I’m always so in awe of your dedication to it because I know I wouldn’t last more than a day 😛

    My brother used to work on Blue Bloods! He said that Donnie Wahlberg was the NICEST guy!

    LOL I love that first picture of Zoe. It looks like she’s debating which piece of fruit she should grab next.

    I hope Zoe is feeling better today. She looks so cute and grown up in all her pictures. Have a great week!

    Can you believe it?? We are almost done with another round! Not gonna lie I am scurred about what to do next. I hope it can be like my first one where I just keep on going and drop more pounds. I will be heading to TJ’s after work for … you guessed it… more food! Sounds like you had a nice weekend:)

    You are doing so great on Whole 30! I suggest you add back in a few things that you miss like the creamer but try to keep up the majority of the diet as a lifestyle change. So much better than a diet when you call it a lifestyle change! Hope little miss is feeling better!

    Wait, this is the last full week of January? I need to consult my calendar.

    Zoe in that bookbag is TOO cute! I finished Mean Streak over the weekend- holy cow was that great! I so wish we had a Trader Joe’s around here. Maybe I should make a day trip to one while I’m on leave 🙂 Hope Zoe is on the mend- have a great week!

    So fun you and Zoe got a girls day out on Saturday and that she loves fruit! Healthy eating habits from young is where it starts…I hope her sickness wasn’t too bad today to make a doctor visit. I swear every kid I know in daycare either has gotten a bad cold or the flu (knock on wood) from daycare…. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

    I love Zoe pondering over her food. LOL
    I finally played Mart Kart on the Switch this weekend. I LOVED IT SO MUCH!!

  • Reply Sierra January 24, 2018 at 12:10 am

    Target and Trader Joe’s all the way! Zoe is too cute with her little face in front of her fruit and grilled cheese. Daycare germs are the worst! I was home with A yesterday who had the stomach bug. I hate seeing them not well. Sierra~Beautifully Candid
