As I write this post I am sitting outside by the pool in Phoenix. The weather is gorgeous, my kid is sleeping and I have a beer in hand. Life is good people, life is good.
If you missed it, I’m just wrapping up my first fitness series. This week I challenged you, my readers, to complete the week of the 100’s with me where each day you did 100 reps of 1 exercise. Things ranging from air squats to calf raises. My muscles are definitely feeling it and hopefully yours are too. Next week the challenge will be a daily tabata. Tune in on Monday to get all the details. For now, its not too late to jump in and finish the last 3 days, check out the details here.
And now, here’s my weekly round up of my favorite things on the internet.
Favorite new website
Once a month meals, I discovered this little gem recently. Each month you can plan out your entire meal plan based on their recipes and then if you are a subscriber they give you your shopping list, preparation instructions, and freezing instructions. You can choose the type of meals that match your diet (paleo, gluten/dairy free, diet foods, traditional meals, etc) and then the best part is you prep/cook everything in 1 day. I just signed up so I’m going to be doing this once we are back from vacation. I’ll share you with you my experience once I’ve got a month experience under the belt.
Favorite new comfy
Evy’s Trees is dressing up the casual hoodie. I like it. These aren’t cheap, but I think they’re pretty adorable.
Favorite Crafty Project
I feel like everyone I know has this shelf, but no one, including me, has it decorated this nicely. This little tutorial teaches you how to decorate like a boss. One of these days I will get around to stylin mine up.
Favorite Kid Product
How freakin cute are these? Ro*sham*bo*baby makes some absolutely adorable sunglasses for kids. Most of the products are named after characters and shows from the 80s and 90s so parents my age can get even more excited about that. For example, Piper is currently modeling the Kelly Kapowski model.
Favorite Blog Post
A Brave Man shares the 10 sucky things about being married to a pregnant woman. My favorite? Compliments that aren’t taken as compliments. Don’t make the mistake of responding when your wife complains about her body during this period. Just act like you don’t hear it…… Truer words were never spoken.
One more day of fun in the sun here in Phoenix before heading back to Iowa. Lets hope spring is truly around the corner. This mama can’t take the cold anymore.
