halfway through april & all is well

whoa, how are we seriously half way through april already?  make it slow down, please?  parker turns five in less than two weeks & the days just keep on going on by.

life has been picking up lately but does it ever slow down? doesn't seem like it.  i've been working a bit more, shuttling both kids to school (elliot's doing a three hour play group once a week) & working on my fitness.

guys, i'm serious when i say trying to get back in shape is time con-sum-ing.  we need more hours in the day!  but if you want to follow my fitness journey you can check out my instagram dedicated to it at  it's been fun & i have big goals that i'm hoping to smash.  they involve large muscles & a lot less junk in my diet.  check it out!  but i'm not gonna apologize for all the selfies.  sorry dudes.  it just comes with the territory.

on that note, you know what else is time consuming?  cooking a lot & eating fresh, healthy food.  meal planning so that your fridge is stocked with good stuff & then eating it all before it goes bad.  which reminds me, did you know that people today are spending more money at restaurants than they are on their own groceries?  crazy, right?  eating out less is definitely on my to do list.

here are a few glimpses of what we've been up to.  celebrated easter with lots of candy & tasty food, spent all kinds of time outside, spent all kinds of time inside & went on a few adventures.  later dudes!

it's april // no foolin'

happy april 1st!

i haven't taken too many daily shots since we last spoke.  my goal for this year's p365 is to end up with at least as many photos for the month as there are days.  but not necessarily one photo per day.  i ended march with 37 photos for my p365 so i took a few days off.  i'm not sure this is the best way to do it though, because since i haven't shot for a couple days i kinda feel like i'm losing steam? i don't know.  i also overthink what i should take a picture of.  should it always be my kids? who am i shooting this for? for me to think it looks cool aesthetically or for them to look back on some day? or for my instagram followers who may or may not be so sick of seeing their faces.  ultimately it needs to be about what inspires me, right? it's my project.  i need to stop overthinking.

so now that we've gotten that out of the way, what else is new? i've started a 12 week workout guide & am on week 2.  i'm pretty excited about it! anyone heard of kayla itsines?  she's put out these 12 week workout guides that help you go from ok shape to freaking ripped.  i mean, ya know, results not typical or whatever.  but we'll see.  i'm feeling pretty motivated (says the girl who just ate a couple extra squares of dark chocolate) but seriously.  it's all about clean eating, high intensity circuit resistance training workouts & cardio workouts on the off-circuit days.

i've started an instagram account dedicated to my fitness journey.  i mean did you know this was a thing?  there are millions of fitness acounts on instagram & the supportive community is huge.  but i'm really scared to put this out there to the people who know me though... i've been pretty guarded about who i share it with.  i mean, i'm really putting myself out there here.  ya know, progress pics & sweaty selfies & all that.  it is what it is.  and what it is is a place for me to shamelessly track my progress, report my workouts & post lots of selfies of me flexing.  so there you have it, you've been warned.  if you're cool with that, i'd love to have you follow along! so come find me at <-- boom.

and that's about it. hope everyone's spring is off to a bangin start & i'll catch ya next time!
