Amanda’s Weekly Update
Heyo, readers! It’s nice to see you this Sunday. I’m so excited for Christmas in July this week on the blog. I’m ready to go somewhere snowy, peaceful and romantic. But, like, in a book cuz pandemic and all.
So a few weeks ago I actually started working with a nutrition coach. Talk about a *game changer*. I’m learning how to understand my body and feed it what it needs. I’m tracking my hunger, sleep, water intake, what I’m actually consuming, my recovery, my energy during the workouts, all kinds of things. My goals have mostly been getting into basics like sleep and hydration, but I’m starting to work on my mindset around food as well. It isn’t something I’ve ever really considered before, but once you start reflecting on the psychology behind something it can help you figure out patterns (healthy ones or otherwise). I’m so excited to see where this process will take me! I’ll bring you along for the ride, too, if you want. 😉
My parents are visiting from Tennessee this week. I’m excited to spend some quality time with them – and I know the kids have been counting down the days!
Not much reading happening, but I have some cute ones for our Christmas in July feature! Keep entering the raffle and make sure you go follow the blog on Instagram! 😊😊
Lillian’s Weekly Update
Happy Sunday y’all! This week was a weirdly busy week, but also not. Like I said weird. It felt busy, but looking back on the week we really didn’t do much of anything. Little man started taking guitar lessons again this week. He is so excited! His new teacher is fantastic with him too so I’m also excited. Our first experience wasn’t that great, and I honestly wasn’t sure he’d ever pick up the guitar again.
Wednesday was our 14th wedding anniversary which just doesn’t seem possible….then again it also doesn’t seem possible that come February I’ll have a ten year old 😭 Because of COVID we didn’t do much. The hubby talked me into going out for dinner (middle of the day so there was no one there but us and an elderly couple on the other side of the restaurant), and then he took me on a date to the bookstore, since it’s now fully reopened (pretty sure it was us and the workers and that was it). It was the oddest thing to be out and about – fully masked up of course. I haven’t done that since March! It was a welcome reprieve, and honestly the book store makes the best date 😉
Reading wise it was an okay week. I didn’t read nearly as much as I wanted too. I managed to finish three books and (hopefully by tonight) one audiobook. This week I’m excited to continue our holiday reads and bring y’all more Christmas in July 😀 Be sure to follow us on instagram to get the secret word of the day for bonus entries in our rafflecopter!
