Good morning! I hope you enjoyed a relaxing weekend and are ready to attack the week with gusto! Hmm…I am not ready for that either! Let’ s grab a cup of coffee, and chat first instead…
The weekend was a little bit of a blur since I was working at the gym off and on. I am slowly working on getting used to my routine and the hours there. I was also asked by our friend Sumair to work with some clients at his new studio – Train Life Fit. Sumair is Scott’s co-host on The Well Being Podcast. When it rains, it pours! Some readers expressed interest in hearing more about my job at the gym. I certainly want to share my thoughts on the gym as well as being a personal trainer. I have spent many years in the corporate world. So I can absolutely say this is a fish out of water experience for me.
In other news, Scott and I made some killer guacamole that you should definitely check out for the upcoming Super Bowl. We also went to church, stopped at the farmers market and enjoyed a little bit of Austin sunshine. Our little DIY Green Room Project is moving along at a crawling pace. Maybe that is why this survey I saw on Ashley’s blog caught my eye…
At My House Survey
Household Chore I Actually Enjoy
There are quite a few I do not necessarily mind. However, it is frustrating that they all need to be done so frequently! I am not exactly the best house cleaner in the world either. My mom likes to tell me that I remind her of Amy Adams in Enchanted whenever she sees me wipe a counter. Like I should have slippers, a feather duster, and be singing to a flock of animals behind me.
To answer the question, after years of living in an apartment without a washer and dryer it is all about the laundry. I prefer washing to the folding and putting away, but no one is perfect.
Biggest House Disaster
Our Green Room Project! Scott did a wonderful job on the painting. I did a great job of supervising and taking pictures.
Now we just have to get organized, do some shopping for a few odds and end, and we will be ready to call it a day!
Before Company, I Hide
Moms put away toys, and I put away mobility tools. Foam rollers and lacosse balls often clutter our living room because Scott and I will use them if we have the TV on at night. They add a lot of clutter so before anyone stops by I make sure they are in their basket.
Most Recent Music Download
It has been forever since I downloaded music. I use Pandora and Amazon Prime quite frequently. I like the variety for my workouts at the gym. I could probably use a new playlist!
The Last Thing I Bought Online
Almond flour in bulk! I love baking with this stuff and run through a small bag quicky. This was the best deal on Amazon that I could find.
I Hate to Shop For
Anything at Home Depot! My eyes glaze over. Scott jokes that I look like a tourist whenever I am there. Truthfully I am just counting the minutes until I can leave.
Favorite Family Ritual
My favorite ritual is that Scott and I have dinner together almost every night when we are both home together. We share what we appreciate about the day and each other. We both grew up with families that ate dinner together so I cannot imagine now having that routine with someone.
I Sleep In
Occassionally I will sleep in on a Saturday until 8:00. A few months back I gradually started getting up earlier so that I could shift to being more of a morning person. Now that I have adjusted to the habit I have started just waking up at the same time every day.
I Have a Style Crush On
I am with Ashley on this one! Lauren Conrad is beautiful, stylish and real. Love her!
I’m Currently Reading
Does my NSCA Studying count? Probably not, but I have found I need to hold off starting another book until my certification is out of the way.
What’s up with the ________ trend?
I feel like there is a trend of people tearing each other down. Whether you want to call it bullying or hating it makes me really sad.
How Did I Ever Live Without?
My I-Phone sad to say. I cannot imaging having ever lived without a cell phone. I use it for everything from taking pictures, driving directions, social media and actually talking to people! Almost forgot that part. 🙂
