1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
Jacqueline Mazza. She is a Diamond Beach Body Coach that I’m friends with on Instagram and Facebook. She has been hosting a mini 5 day strength and core challenge on a closed Facebook group that I’ve been participating in this week.
I workout pretty regularly and am active with my kiddos, but this challenge has me sore in places I haven’t been sore before (or in a long time). I’ve liked it because the exercises have taken me only about 15 minutes. I’ve been knocking them out before getting ready in the mornings and haven’t even had to wake up any earlier than usual. (Really that means I hit snooze one less time than usual.)
Everyone in the group has been sharing their struggles, successes, and progress with the workouts and their eating through the day. I hadn’t worked out in about 3 weeks because I was recovering from being pretty sick. This was the perfect way to kick start me back into the routine. Follow her to get updates on upcoming challenges.
2) What blog should you check out?
Rosie Culture. Rosie is a 20 something recent college grad who blogs about her travel, work, relationships (including dude and friendships) and other life adventures. She’s lots of fun to follow guys, AND she just celebrated a birthday. Hop on over to check her blog out. Wish her a happy birthday while you are there.
3) What’s been going on this week?
“This is the BEST pool ever!”
“We just went to keep swimming, Moooooom!”
“I love this water!”
Memorial weekend came and brought with it summer weather. So my husband went to work on getting the pool ready for the season. Fun fact, I didn’t give birth to babies but a pair of fish instead.
5 years ago my husband searched every store in Oklahoma City for an above ground pool. He was on a mission to make his pregnant wife a little less miserable in her third trimester during the dead of summer. I know it can be a pain for him to set up and keep up with the pool every year, but man have we gotten a lot use and good times out of it.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
I make up our family calendar and keep it on the fridge. Well, June’s calendar was all made up and filled in. Now it’s lost. I cannot find it anywhere. I guess this is why people use shared e-calendars? Anyway, if we have plans this weekend and you are reading this, I need a reminder.
5) Did you miss this post?
Garlic Chive Butter. I promise you’ll want to make this butter for all your summer grilling needs. It’s super easy and super flavorful.
Thanks for reading.
