Still going strong! Avoiding Valentine candy, eating healthy, exercising and getting outside. Southern California certainly makes that easy.
This week's topic is "Rut Rescue". I haven't hit it yet, so I don't have much to contribute. I think keeping exercise and healthy food choices interesting is key. And, if you're not motivated to exercise, continue to focus on food. I've heard that 80% of weight loss and maintenance is food-related. Correct?
***1 pound lost last week. Definitely feeling a difference in my clothes now.
On to the scoop.
Carter scored 19 out of 26 points on Saturday, beating his record of 15. That kid has mad skillz.
Guess who was the fish beater at school on Friday? Yep. It was a big day. Please note, too, that Jack refuses all other jobs when they're assigned to him.
They're obviously below his standards.
Had the punks' parent-teacher conferences last week. (Still feels weird that I now have 3 of these to attend.) Both children are doing well and Jack is on par to start Kindergarten in the Fall.
Since birth, I've always battled with the idea of starting him on time or not. He's a late April baby, which means he'd be younger than most kids. Add the whole "boy" factor and I've feared he might be behind. However, he's thriving in Preschool and the teachers are confident he's ready. Plus, California schools don't cut off the age requirement until December 31 each year........rather than September like most other states. So, he won't be near the youngest of the class.
Water table! I'm working on setting up one like this in the backyard. They're gonna love it.
Share Day arrived on Friday. Letter of the week = M. Jack brought a Thomas book and showed kids Murdoch and Mavis. So proud.
Lainey brought Meow Meow. The one and only Meow Meow.
Saturday night, we had Sass's sister, Katie and her husband out to our home for a visit. Both of my girls in town last week! Lainey tried on the Baby Bjorn we handed down to Katie, who is expecting twin boys late Spring.
We ate In-N-Out and enjoyed a fun night of baby talk and stroller demos. Love these two. Seems weird that they'll have 2 babies the next time we see them!
Punks keep ending up in my bed. And, I love it. With Blake traveling, they take advantage.
My neighbor had an art show over the weekend. Her yard is to-die-for.
This is about 5% of the fabulousness. Love it.
I opted out of the Super Bowlapalooza and drove into San Diego for a walk through Horton Plaza. Sass raved about it while she was here. Can't have her knowing part of my town and me not.
Outdoor shopping. I actually prefer Fashion Valley, but this was good.
Got some new kicks. Been wanting them forever.
Do you know about Toms? The company gives away a pair of shoes to a child in need with every pair purchases. How cool is that?
Plans for the week:
*Basketball - last week of practice!
*Prepare for Valentine parties at school.
*Chocolate pie making with the littlest punks.
*Spring break planning.
*Find soccer and dance programs!
Hope yall have a good week.
