Started week 6 at the gym!!!!

I made it to 6 weeks at the gym!!!!!

Had my first session and it felt really good. I did cardio to start with, but skipped it after the workout because I wanted to get on the hydro massage table. Honestly, I have been choosing cardio instead of going to the massage because of how late I get to the gym. I always feel guilty after a workout to enjoy the beds when I know I should get home to watch Allee. Most of the time however Allee is just fine when I get home.

Oh my goodness a hydro massage was so worth it yesterday!! So glad that I took the time to use the beds.

I definitely need to get to the gym earlier so that I can do some cardio intervals at the end of my workout. It would just end up making the whole work out a lot longer and right now I can't afford that. I also must crack down on my eating. I'm considering Whole30 although I don't think I want to be that drastic about it either. Clearly I'm pretty conflicted about it.

Anyone have any experience with Whole30? I don't want to do a fad diet thing for myself. I have been eating clean and gluten free and I'm pretty happy with that, I think my bigger problem is getting a handle on my snackiness. I don't really think that's a word.

I'm just so hungry all the time!!

I know it's normal for someone who is working out 3 times a week. I know that it's also normal that I desire sweets too. It's just frustrating because food is such a struggle for me in the first place. I hate having to deal with it.

Okay. Rant over. Here is my vlog from before my workout.

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
