It’s Friday!  Do your Friday cheer!


(I cut the straggely pieces off my rug – it was one small organizational/clean-up goal of the week.)


I am so, so glad the weekend is here.  Did you have a healthy week?  I had a lot of fun Focusing on the Can and working towards my 5 Healthy Goals of the Week.  I got my sweat on every day (except today – however, there’s still time!), I drank all my green smoothies, I got Henry outside for playtime, I did my organizing, and I practiced nightly gratitude.  Last night’s gratitude was “I am so thankful for the Air Buddies movie series, which allowed me to sleep peacefully on the couch despite Henry skipping his naptime.”


Despite being really worn out yesterday, I slept ah-maz-ing last night and now I feel almost human.  So it’s all good.


For Henry’s outing today, I took him to the soccer fields so he could practice with the big goals.  It was fun – especially because we had some nice cloud cover so it wasn’t sweltering hot. 


And here’s part of my lunch!


A yummy salad with tomatoes (from my garden!), sunflower seeds, watermelon, chickpeas, and balsamic reduction.  The balsamic reduction was more like a balsamic sludge because I overcooked it, but it was still good.


This would’ve been perfect with cast-iron tofu but we are all out.  Wahhh.

    Henry looks SO different all of a sudden! Like he turned two and suddenly is a full-grown kid! So crazy. My daughter will be two next week and it trips me out how long and lean she looks these days.

    I’m dealing with a big dip in energy in the third trimester (currently 32 weeks with #2) and so I think I’m going to try that Whole 30 plan. I heard that regulating your blood sugar and getting off sugar in general helps pregnant women feel better, especially in the last few weeks. I went off sugar for ten days earlier, and that actually really helped me out a lot with nausea and sleep. It doesn’t look like processed foods or sugar are big problems in your daily intake, but you might look into it. I think I just googled “whole 30 while pregnant” and found some good resources.

    I’m obsessed with your rug! I know the hubs won’t let me decorate our house with a ton of purple, so I’m saving it all for a guest bedroom, but I love dark purple!

    I LOVE seeing videos of Henry! I don’t go crazy over babies because they just seem to drool and poop, but toddlers are so active and fun!
