Hi, guys! How’s it going?!
I just wanted to pop in real quick with a (random) blog post. I actually thought of most of these things while laying in bed the other night when my mind was racing a zillion miles per minute. Wow, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I feel like such a scatterbrain lately, so that’s kind of how this post came together… just a bunch of random thoughts from the other night. Ok, here we go!
I really need to get a jumpstart on my taxes this year. Mal and I always wait until the last minute and then we’re scrambling like maniacs trying to get everything together. We’re actually switching from our current CPA to one in our financial adviser’s office, so hopefully that will help make things a bit more seamless. (I honestly don’t know why we waited so long?!)
I’ve literally made a batch of these Banana Coconut Cookies every single day this week. I am totally obsessed. I actually switched to unsweetened coconut flakes for a lower sugar version since I eat all three cookies every single time, and it’s still amazing.
I’m on the fence about registering for this year’s CrossFit Open — mostly because I’ve made practically zero improvements since last year’s Open. T2B? Eh. HSPUs? Nope. Muscle-Ups of any sort? NOPE. I love CrossFit, but I don’t spend extra time working on anything anymore. I just do it for fun and to socialize and get a good sweat on. I dunno. I guess my priorities have changed. I’ll probably end up registering because I know I’ll be bummed if I don’t. And, hey, maybe I’ll surprise myself!
Remember that weird eczema that I had above my eye a few weeks ago? Well, it’s back sort of. It’s itchy, but not flaky, and I’m pretty sure it’s related to stress. Stress does CRAZY stuff to your body, huh!?
These leggings are everything. I want them in my life. My random thoughts just keep coming back to them!
Qman’s annual evaluation for Early Intervention is coming up in a few weeks, and I’m pretty sure he’s not going to qualify for services, which means he’s all caught up with his speech delays! 🙂 The kid is talking NONSTOP!!!
Speaking of the little dude, he’s recently taken an interest in photography. He frickin’ LOVES taking pictures. He literally giggles to himself when he takes a cool photo. It’s so sweet.
I really need to see a chiropractor. Or something. My back is so messssssed up. Has anyone had success with treatment for their scoliosis? I feel like in my old age things are getting worse.
I just bought these dark spot corrector patch things, and I’m excited to give them a try!
In November, I weighed myself, and I was surprised to see that I had gained a solid 10 pounds since the summer. Maybe my clothes felt a little tighter, and I knew I was probably drinking too much wine at the time (hey, we had a FUN summer and fall), but I didn’t think I had put on that much weight. I know the scale is just a number, but, whoa, it jumped up a lot. After that, I started to pay attention to my diet, and I’ve since lost 4-5 pounds. I’m still not back at my “feel great weight”, and I’ve felt kind of blah about myself because it’s taking longer than usual for the weight to come off.
But then, just recently, I realized that I’ve been in remission since the end of the summer, and this extra weight might just be healthy (I’m-not-sick-anymore) weight. Since then, my thinking has done a complete 180, and I’m in such a better place now. I just wanted to share this because the scale does not tell the whole story! 🙂
