July Roundup

I am thoroughly embarrassed at the lack of exercise this month.  What can I say? My husband started a new job that requires him in much earlier and my job just got hella more demanding.  It was a lose lose for my exercise time.  Either way, here’s my recap for the month:

  1. Run the Naked Bavarian 40 mile race on March 4, 2017  –  Done.  Read race recap here if you missed it.
  2. Raise $5,000 for Covenant House Pennsylvania – Done March 3, 2017
  3. Run the Dirty German 50 mile race on May 13, 2017* – finished the 25K, blog post still pending.
  4. Lose the baby weight (starting weight 140) – So last month I reported a 3 lb loss and I am here to say I am back up 2 lbs to 135 lbs.  Summer is the worst time for me to lose weight.  Too many tempting occasions to enjoy a cocktail and eat delicious food.  What can I say? #sorrynotsorry
  5. Rock Climb More – We took my oldest nephew rock climbing, he loved and it! So I climbed once that counts right?!?
  6. Travel More – We are living it up in LBI, follow me on instagram for fun in the sun pics
  7. Blog More – Wah Wah Wah!  As you can tell this did not happen?!
  8. One small house project a month – So along with the patio job last month we had to redo the columns which were on temporary support beams until a couple of days ago.  So that was a not so small project that basically my husband did but I watched the kids and helped with the clean up. A bit of a stretch much?!?
  9. Declutter –   So here’s one thing I rocked this month! I got rid of a baby chair, giant pregnancy pillow, 2 baby carriers, baby jumper and a wooden cabinet.  There’s a bit more space in my basement and a bit more cash in my wallet.  Winner winner chicken dinner!
  10. Spend less – We blew the budget again this month:  The supplies for the front porch were over $600 and my husband needed new contacts and a new mouth guard.  Adulting is expensive.

I’m not even going to pretend I will get to blogging this month, see ya’ll in August

June Roundup

Here it is finally….

  1. Run the Naked Bavarian 40 mile race on March 4, 2017  –  Done.  Read race recap here if you missed it.
  2. Raise $5,000 for Covenant House Pennsylvania – Done March 3, 2017
  3. Run the Dirty German 50 mile race on May 13, 2017* – finished the 25K, blog post still pending.
  4. Lose the baby weight (starting weight 140) – I stuck with Myfitnesspal for most of the month and managed to lose 3 lbs.  Down to 133.  Although I may have gained it back this past weekend at the shore.  What can I say it was the Fourth of July?!?!  I am trying to be as disciplined as possible during the week since all bets are off on the weekend.   C’est la vie.
  5. Rock Climb More – Again, I climbed once at the PRG with my hubby.  I have to say when I do climb I feel strong and my technique is still pretty good.  I just need to do it more.
  6. Travel More – We successfully went to Ft. Myers beach and had a great time with great friends.  No more trips until the fall since we will be at the shore most weekends.
  7. Blog More – I sucked again this month. Summers are hard to find the time.
  8. One small house project a month – We had our front patio redone and although we didn’t do the work, I am counting it in this category.  It NEEDED to be done.  The whole patio had sunk about 6 inches and was starting to crumble.  Its been on the list since we bought the house and it was pretty penny- almost $5K job!! Ouch.
  9. Declutter –   Since the porch was otherwise ocupado with the construction, I didn’t have any donations picked up.  I did get rid of some baby items to a coworker who is having a little one next month.
  10. Spend less – We blew the budget this month:  The front porch, Gymnastics for my 3 year old and paying off the emergency room visit from April, Luckily the trip to Florida was paid with points and we stayed with a friend but either way it was an EXPENSIVE MONTH.

Here’s to hopefully more blogging this month….
