I’m still not ready to post regularly again, but I thought it would be fun to check in really quickly. I swear I have actually done some stuff other than embarrassing myself on a daily basis. I guess I just want to prove that, y’all. Indulge me?
My toddler is now a full-on kid, and I don’t know how or when it happened. He recently told me what an Octagon was and then proceeded to explain to me that if I added red and yellow, I would get orange. He knows so much new stuff everyday that I seriously can’t keep up. The only thing I can’t get him to remember is that some special occasions are once a year. Last weekend he said, “It’s never my birthday, Mama.” Tough life isn’t it, kid?
It’s no secret that I’ve been in a terrible workout slump for the past few months. That being said, I’m actually optimistic that things are really going to improve this time. I’ve started running outside again, thanks to the later sunsets. <-Who else is excited about it? I also went up in my squat weight, which is insane since I haven’t been doing them at all lately. Rest clearly does you good, y’all.
Um, I’ve been hitting the sugar hard to say the least. Instead of letting it get me down, I’m just going to remember that it always comes in waves for me. Pretty soon I’ll be bored and be begging for a change. Or, you know, a veggie. But, right now, I have Smallcakes on speed dial. I’d say it was an issue, but it’s been pretty freaking delicious. Get the salted caramel ones and thank me later.
I know. I need to cut back on the sweets. Other than that, I’m feeling great. In related news, I’m working on my dental health. I can’t believe I didn’t mention this last month at all, but I got a pendulum appliance (that hideous thing up there) put in the roof of my mouth. I sound ridiculous when I talk, but it won’t be long until I switch it out for Invisalign. Which, as I’ve heard, will continue to make me sound ridiculous. All in the name of healthy, pearly whites, am I right?
I feel like I never properly recapped Vegas and then I was immediately flying to DC. Instead of trying to recap them both now, I thought I’d just touch on how much I appreciate the experiences I’ve had lately. Heading to DC was especially amazing, because we were able to lobby for things I’m passionate about: health, fitness, and children. It’s official, I Love. My. Job.
So, that’s pretty much it. Thrilling, right? Pick and topic and update me on your life now!
