Hey guys, I’m still alive! And it’s what? Wednesday? Hello half way through the week! I would’ve made myself sit down and blog sooner, but I seem to have develop the mindset lately of:
If I don’t feel like it, I’m not doing it.
This has poured over into all areas of life: laundry, housework, yard work, blogging, etc. If I’m not feeling it, it’s not happening. Maybe I should be harder on myself, but I’ve been on the constant go for what feels like forever, and I’m using these last few weeks as a mom of one to relax and rest up.
I’ve been chilling a lot on the back patio while Tyrion plays.
I even took my whale like body and laid in the sun yesterday and tanned a bit. Sorry if any of my neighbors saw me. They probably had to shield their eyes against the large white blob laying in my yard. But hey, that’s their issue if they decided to peek in my backyard.
Every now and then I still get up and do something. . . Like I mowed the front lawn today. Hello Eryn for the win!
I was worn out after that though so I left the backyard for Travis tonight. You’re welcome honey.
Speaking of Travis, he has been more than helpful lately. He even did the majority of the grocery shopping for me last week. Major husband points for that one. And Sunday was his 32nd birthday so after church we passed little Tyrion off to my parents to hang out and spend the night, and we made a date day of it!
We went out for lunch at P.F. Chang’s, then saw the newest Fast and Furious 7 movie. And can I just say how emotional I am lately? It honestly makes me sick and embarrassed all at the same time. But there isn’t a darn thing I can do about it. The last few minutes of the movie had me pretty much crying like a little child. And my mascara which is a new one I’m trying (not in love with it) is the worst for running, so I pretty much looked like a mess. Ugh.
Super good movie! Though I’m pretty sure we were the last ones in our group of family and friends/all of America to see it.
Other than that we are all staying alive. The weather has been nothing but beautiful and we spend a large majority of our days outdoors. I’ve started calling Tyrion our little surfer boy. He’s so tan and has that long, dirty blond hair. He looks like he should have a surfboard in hand heading out on a California beach!
I’ll be sure to check back in . . . sometime. ; ) I hit 34 weeks on Monday and am seriously done with pregnancy. I can’t sit up straight anymore, and getting comfortable is pretty much a thing of the past. I’m sleeping okay, besides waking up no less than 3 or 4 times to pee each night. So frustrating! I’m up 25 pounds at this point and honestly have been pigging out lately. I want all the sugar! It’s so bad I know, and not helping with how tired I am lately. But I have no self restraint so it is what it is.
I have been giving thought lately with how I want to get back on track after baby is born. Shakology might be something I want to try in the mornings for a easy breakfast, or I’ve heard great things about Advocare too. I have friends who sell both, so I’ll just have to do a little more research/price checking. I am so bad at breakfast but know I need to get something nutritious down me early in the day so I can function like a normal human. Plus I want to start up running around 4 to 6 weeks postpartum so I’ll have to be treating/feeding my body well to be able to preform and not injure myself. Anyhow, lots to think about over the next few weeks.
Have a happy hump day! I’m off to get Tyrion some lunch!
