Thursday Thoughts {10/8/15}

I loved all your comments on Tuesday’s post. You all are such wise mothers & friends and I love that we’re all in this together! I totally wish we could all hang out & chat while our kids play. Someday, someday.

Speaking of chatting, I have a bunch of things on my mind, and want your opinions one a few things, so Thursday thoughts (with questions) it is!

Thursday Thoughts {10/8/15}

1. I’ve been wanting a diet Coke for like a week now.

I know, I know, it’s basically poison, which is why I haven’t gotten one (plus I don’t want it to be in my breast milk) but I kinda still want one because I really really like the taste. I’ve never been a huge soda drinker, but I like ’em once in awhile, and I haven’t had a diet Coke in probably a year or two. Now I all of a sudden want one!

What should I do?!

2. 5:30 a.m. is really really early.

Especially when you went back to bed at 2:45 a.m. :/

That was me this week on Wednesday morning! Baby Lexi decided she wanted to eat around 2 a.m., so once I was finally back in bed, it was almost time for my alarm to go off so I could get dressed & pump before teaching BODYATTACK & CXWORX!

Speaking of, I now teach a 30/30 class (30 min ATTACK + CX) in the wee hours of Wednesday mornings and I already love it! It’s such a fantastic combo workout wise, and I actually love to workout in that hour.


However, it never makes the alarm in the 4 a.m. hour any easier.

But what worth having was ever easy, am I right?

3. I had an hour or so by myself the other day while both girls napped.

It was awesome how the stars aligned so I could have a few minutes to myself. I spent it engrossed in a book. I love curling up on the couch (or bed) and getting lost in a book.


This is the new book in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, and I was totally into on page 1, just like all the other books in the series.

What book are you reading right now?

4. I hate folding laundry. But I hate putting it away more.

If there is a chore that I put off most it would be that one!


What about you?

5. These fall mornings & evenings are really magical!

We’ve been loving spending time in the yard and on walks because the fall weather in Utah right now is spectacular. We’ve also had some awesome sunsets.

I usually nurse Lexi in a chair outside while Lily & Jared play ball & swing on the swings after dinner. It’s really lovely to be with my people. :)


6. Speaking of them, check out this picture I snapped:


How adorable is that?!

Baby Lexi is learning real quick that there is someone in the house who loves to kiss her cheeks with so much gusto! 😉

7. I made Texas sheet cake again (with Lily) this past weekend.

And I’m polishing off the remainders like a champ! I usually cut a slice off, warm it up for a few seconds, and then eat it with a glass of milk.

Do you eat leftover desserts straight out of the pan or do you prepare it on a plate?

8. I’m so sore all over again this week!

With launching the new releases at a few gyms this week and with starting teaching BODYATTACK again, I’m just one sore hot mess all over again.

And I kind of love it.

Do you like being sore?

Have a GREAT day!
