  • Food:  This will be a week of cooking dinners at home.  No travel for Hottie means kitchen time for me!  We’ve got our favorites lined up this week!
    • Sunday – Greek chicken with homemade apple pie as dessert
    • Monday – Curry burgers
    • Tuesday – I’m too ashamed to log what I had for dinner.  We went to the Y for INSAN.ITY fit testing, which I thought would take 10-15 minutes.  The testing itself was quick, but then we were led through another 20 minutes of class, taking us to 6:50.  We then walked the track for 10 minutes and because we’re putting the kids to bed earlier these days, Hottie said, “DQ for dinner?”  And I agreed.  I had a kids cup of vanilla ice cream – and that was my dinner.  I put the frozen soup (homemade leftovers) back in the freezer for another time.
    • WednesdayCurried pumpkin soup – This was excellent!  It needed a bit of something more in the way of spices, and we’re not sure what.  I think we’ll try coriander or nutmeg next time.  I subbed coconut oil for the canola oil and it worked out great.  I used low sodium broth which was a mistake – follow the recipe!
    • Thursday – Pear and Ground Pork Stuffed Winter Squash (we used carnival squash instead of acorn squash this time – and we prefer the acorn squash)
    • FridayChicken non-tortilla soup We took the boys bowling tonight and then out for hot dogs for them.  We ate oatmeal – it was the only healthier option there.  It was good!
    • Saturday – Date night!!!
  • Exercise/Activity: I’ll be hitting it hard this week again – shooting for 7 hours of activity.  My goal is 2 4-mile runs (Mon, Tues, Fri), 3 INSAN,ITY and KB workouts in the garage, and a weights class at the YMCA.  I need to keep working hard at cardio but really like the garage workouts for strength and endurance training.
    • Sunday – Mowed the lawn (47 minutes) – 11,200 Steps
    • Monday – Morning run (45 minutes) – 14,500 Steps
    • Tuesday – INSAN.ITY and kickboxing (52 minutes), more INSAN.ITY (28 minutes), track walking (10 minutes) – 14,800 Steps
    • Wednesday – Rest day!- 9,100 Steps (so not proud of this)
    • Thursday – INSAN.ITY and kickboxing (70 minutes) – 13,000 Steps
    • Friday – Track walking (66 minutes), INSAN.ITY core and balance (15 minutes) – 16,000 Steps
    • Saturday – Afternoon run (48 minutes)- 17,500 Steps
  • Notes and findings: 
    • I have a chest cold this week that doesn’t seem to be keeping me down, but it made me want to take a rest day.
    • Working out in the garage is… working out great!  I can’t believe how motivated I am to work out on my own.
    • I tried working out in the basement while the kids played and that proved to be difficult – I’ll keep working out while they nap!
    • We went to the Y on Friday morning to do nothing in particular other than give myself a parenting break.  Matthew was EXCITED to go and Bryson couldn’t get to the toys soon enough.  I walked the track for an hour, watching Matthew play with his friends in the gym just below.  It was fun – and I think I’ll do that every Friday that Bryson doesn’t nap in the morning!
    • I am done getting “egg white” breakfast sandwiches from McDo.nalds.  I figured they weren’t great for me, but they are so tasty and thue “healthiest” option in the morning if I’m choosing to go there (and I go there Mon-Wed after preschool drop-off just for their Die.t – which is just so good!).  I have known that they’d have to go at some point, so when I read all about how it’s made, I decided to ditch them.  I had one last one and that’s it – I’m done.  I’ve been there twice since saying “no more” and I’ve just gotten my and I’m perfectly happy with that.
    • I met my exercise goals with the exception of a weights session.  😦

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  2. Man, your dedication is impressive. I’ve had a rough 10 days with travel and then getting sick, and I really need to get back at it. GAH! Thanks for sticking with it an inspiring me to do the same.

    • Getting sick is the worst! I just got my first bronchitis diagnosis this morning and it’s no wonder I’ve felt off and unmotivated! You sound like you were down for the count! Awful!
