Oh hey there. I have a blog. That I've kinda sorta been neglecting. Oops. I'm sure you've all been getting along in your daily lives just fine without my pointless ramblings. But, I'm back
Here's a tiny recap of birthday stuff from last week...
This week is Spring Break and I must say...SB ain't what it used to be folks! Not that I ever did anything super exciting when I was younger, but, having kids definitely changes how SB goes down each year. Yesterday was super wild. I got up at 8:15 (yeah, that's right I slept in) and then headed across the yard to the gym. I am absolutely loving my Garmin Forerunner! While I haven't taken it out on a jiggle jog to test out the GPS abilities, I love the heart rate monitor and seeing how many calories I've burned each time. Definitely a big motivater! After I washed all the sweat away I took K&K, Tiegan, and my sister's two boys Colby and Caleb to the Skating Rink.
Yall, I laughed so hard the first ten minutes we were there I think it should have counted as an extra workout. I wish I had been wearing my watch and HRM because I know I burned some calories. My abs hurt, my cheeks were sore, and I was crying. It was awesome. I did my best to help them, but there's only so much you can do to help a wobbly leg child on skates
besides laugh at them. The best way to describe it would be...like watching a newborn baby calf trying to stand up for the first time. And then fall down. And repeat this multiple times. They finally got the hang of it and were doing awesome by the time we left. I was proud of them for not giving up! Especially with my laughing. I kept telling them I was laughing WITH them not AT them, but they wouldn't laugh and help me prove my point...
After skating we hit up Sonic. I watched them down slushies, tater tots, and cheese sticks as I slurped on my Diet Cherry Limeade. Luckily it doesn't take 5 kids long to devour food, so I didn't have to suffer too long. We went to the park for a while, and then headed back home. I am not the most patient person
shocker I know and I was a little nervous how the day would go with all of them, but they were surprisingly very well behaved and I didn't have to smack anyone the entire time. I consider that a Mama/Aunt win.
Today started out about the same...except I decided to make the "egg muffins" I keep seeing plastered all over IG. I used eggs, spinach, and mushrooms. I have to say, I wasn't that impressed. I think it's something about the texture of the eggs but idk. Next time I will use a little more seasoning and try to find some low fat cheese to add. They weren't awful, but I was planning to use them as my "go to breakfast" next week when we do the Advocare 10 Day Cleanse. I have four days to make these things delicious! My workout was great and I know this because as I type this my arms are screaming at me.
I have no idea what craziness I will get into the remainder of today or the rest of the week, but I'm sure it will be mind blowing. I might clean the bathrooms later. Maybe some shopping tomorrow. And I'm hoping we will get to boil crawfish on Saturday so I can eat my weight in mudbugs before the cleanse begins! Hope everyone is having a fantastic week, whether you're celebrating Spring Break or not!
