Good morning everyone! How are y’all on this fine Monday morning? I must say I love the weekends…’nuff said 🙂
SOOO remember how I had baby fever? And how I was so excited to work in the nursery yesterday at church? Yeah…baby fever is officially gone! I guess crying babies will do that to ya 🙂 It’s just as well though because we really do need to wait a little bit before we start popping out kiddos! Lunch was pizza at Old Chicago:
We had a great time, and got to go home and take a nap for a little bit. We also walked the dogs down a little trail by our house and let them sprint around for a little bit. I really can’t wait for all of this snow to melt and dry up so we can finally take the dogs to the dog park without them getting covered in mud! They’re going to run their little hearts out this summer! We headed over to our pastor’s house for some prayer time, and then had a mini-date at Rock Bottom. Three cheers for nachos!
We think they got these wooden boards to put the nachos on so they could spread them in one layer and therefore downsize the portions. I was kind of bummed, but I suppose that’s probably a good thing!
SO GOOD! When we got home we got to cleaning and doing some stuff around the house that just didn’t get done this weekend. We also went to bed early because I think we were still recovering from skiing all day on Saturday! I love Winter Park, but I will say that their catwalks (the flat part in between more difficult runs) are F-L-A-T and SO hard to ski! You either have to pull yourself along using your poles, or “skate” on your skis to get any sort of speed. That just wears my legs OUT!
This morning I woke up, did some yoga, and made something I haven’t really had in a long time: PB&J Oats!
This afternoon I’m going to attempt running again, and couldn’t be more excited. Then tonight we’re going to clean out our closets and drawers to get rid of stuff we no longer wear and no longer need. I’m really excited about doing this because every time I look in my closet I see a huge section of stuff that I can’t wear anymore because of my weight gain. I’m going to get rid of most of that stuff. Now, I know you must be wondering, “If you’re losing weight why wouldn’t you keep the stuff that you’re trying to fit into?” Thing is I spend way too much time obsessing about fitting into those clothes again, and not enough time being joyful in the person that I am right now. I’ve never gone without clothing, and I feel that by ridding my closet of these “ideal” sizes, it will help me to focus more on being thankful for who I am right now. There will be some things (i.e. pants, dresses, things that are more expensive) that I will be keeping, but I’m going to think long and hard about what I’m keeping and what I’m giving away! Have you ever gone through your closet for a similar reason? Any thoughts?
