Happy Friday!! Anybody else so looking forward to the weekend?? I have to work on Saturday and Sunday, but I am looking forward to watching the Packers play on Saturday night and dinner with friends on Sunday.
I thought I would share a little life lately update today.. .
After eating my weight in sugar cookies over the Christmas holiday, I am working to get back to healthy balanced eating.
More veggies, less dessert. And I’m trying out some new to me AdvoCare supplements. . . I’ll keep you posted on how they work for me! We are still using Hello Fresh. Meals this last week were amazing. I love that they are balanced meals and that we try new things. And we haven’t ever had a bad meal. Use this code: QTHC5N to get $40 OFF your first box
Man, life after Dad died is tough. My heart is so sad. It’s the worst when I forget for a minute that I can’t just text or call when I think “oh, I need to call Dad about that.” and then it hits me all over again. I am so sad that he was taken away from us so quickly and we didn’t have a chance to say good bye. My heart hurts because I would have loved to hear the things he would have said to us and I can’t believe I’ll never hear them. I am so thankful for my family and the fact that this has brought us closer together.
I talk/text with my sisters and Mom way more now than I used to and I know we will be spending more time together. Hug your loved ones and never let an opportunity to say I love you pass you by.
The one thing that keeps me from completely losing it is running. That’s when I feel the closest to him.
We had our best times pounding the pavement together. So, I’ve been running and running and running. And I love it.
And I don’t know what I would do without BODYPUMP and my favorite people at the YMCA.
I’ve still been going about 2 times per week and teaching once per week. It just makes me happy.
And GRIT. Have you ever tried a Les Mills GRIT class? Whoa. It is the most intense thing I have done in a while. It’s only a 30 minute class which is nice, but your heart rate is sky rocketed the entire time. I need to start wearing a heart rate monitor during class and see how high it gets and how many calories I burn. Awesome cross training class. And just a warning – there are always burpees!
I am still loving Le Tote. This sweater had the cutest ruching detail on the sleeves.
And I loved this pink striped wrap top with pink stella pendant necklace.
Anyway. . . that’s life around here. . . oh yeah, AND we are headed to Key West in a week! To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. Looking forward to getting this boy back to the beach + sand.
What’s new with you? Plans for the weekend??
Have a great one!
Linking up with Friday fun with Heather!
