I am having a good day today. My daughter woke me up a little early this morning ugh but she used the potty right away like a big girl. I got breakfast made for the kiddos and got myself ready. Once I got Savannah ready we left a little later than I like.

But we were on time I do always think its funny how when your in a rush you hit every red light have more traffic etc. So you just have to roll with it. Both my kids were in a great mood which is always good way to start the day.

When I took Savannah to school she cracked me up but made me proud because as I was signing her in she was dropping her pants lol but it was to let me know to take her to the potty and I did and she went again. Big girl but too funny 🙂 I stayed for quite awhile hang out with her outside chatted with her friends Dad for awhile about his sons Birthday weekend etc. Then I went to pay for our Early registration for the fall.

It was nice to see a few of the parents chat catch up before leaving. I went home had a quick bite and talked to my husband on the phone to see when he’s heading home today. Then I headed to Pure Barre. It was a great class another full one today. I am happy that so many people for months have been complimented on my body changes.

I am certainly not close to my old size but I am embracing my new older self. I no longer care to be back into a 0 or size 2. When I was younger I looked great but I didn’t have much muscle at all I was toned and thin and healthy but now my body has really changed.

I am larger but I am also more muscular. Since I started my health and fitness journey last year I’ve lost weight but also gained a lot of muscle so I can’t go by my old size and weight from my past.

I am close to 40 and I am happy to be at a size 4 if I fit in a Size 2 great but I am building strength and lean muscle. My arms look great and my butt, thighs and legs are nice I am much curvier than I was in my youth even my bust has increased with having children.

I am going to be working on my mid section for awhile before I get to a flat toned tummy. I do want to get under 130 and currently 134. Before I got married my heavy weight was 118.

I gained a lot of weight went up to about what I weigh now when we moved to June Lake. Then I got pregnant and I’ve never been under 130 ever since.

I have definitely noticed how much harder it is to get rid of stomach fat as well as underarm flab around my armpit and breasts.

I am doing a good job of getting my workouts in both at Pure Barre and using Our Peloton. I love food so much that I don’t completely cut out carbs and sweets and that’s why I know I have to workout all week and hard.

But I do eat lots of protein and veggies and have been great at drinking a lot of water during the day.

The last two years I’ve also noticed that I do get loose skin or wrinkles and I am starting to try Night creams. I have been hearing so much about how side sleeping is bad for you creating deep wrinkles in neck and chest but it’s how I sleep so oh well.

After Pure Barre I went and got my morning coffee. I bought Ms Leslie a Starbucks card since it was her birthday 🎂 today and dropped it off at the school on my way home.

I haven’t seen any new grades added on my sons gradelink and I am hoping for all good grades and a GPA bump. I am so ready for my husband to be home and have some date nights.

I need to get on my Peloton before I pick my son up today. So I had a great Peloton workout but I attempted to do it live on IG and 60 seconds in the phone fell and kept recording only my feet for the whole class lol. I wasn’t going to detach my feet and stop my workout go grab it so I guess everyone who clicked to watch knows I am not good at filming live.

I went to pick up my son and it was windy outside I was hoping the wind was done ugh. When I went to pick up my daughter she jumped on the potty and went again and I found out she went two other times after I left today.

I put dinner in the oven and jumped in the bath to shave and do my hair and clean the sweat off me from my workouts.

I am so happy that my husband is on his way home. I messaged a few of our friends to find out if they are available any of the next few Sundays. It’s been too long since we’ve got together with our friends.

Well dinner was good and now I am taking a minute to blog while my kiddos finish eating and watch Minions with them.

Hope everyone has a goodnight 😴🏡🙏
