I swore I’d never do these things…but c’mon, he just looks like a Gap kid. I’ve been wearing Gap clothing my whole life…”brand loyalty” is a real thing. Plus, this kid BEGS for the spotlight.
What I won’t do is post things on Facebook that are like “Vote for my kid!” “Vote for my kid!” Because that’s annoying. At least I think I won’t do that. No…I definitely will never do that. Kind of like how I will never enter my kid into a contest.
Onto other news, I still haven’t figured out how to use Windows Movie Maker, and I’m not doing so hot on sticking to scheduled posts. I do like the idea of “Mental Health Mondays” and “Food and Fitness Fridays” (I can’t figure out a good Wednesday post…maybe I could just aim for two a week for now. Or, Vlog Wednesdays! That could be the video day. Probably these musings should be relegated to my notebook.) Friends, any tips or ideas you have will be SO appreciated!
Onto Food & Fitness Friday. I want to talk about two things: Flipping Tires and What I Consider a Food “Success.”
Flipping Tires: Makes me feel so badass. I experienced this for the first time recently at a YMCA group fitness challenge, and I just wanted to do it allllll day. Call me crazy. It works the whole body and gives you a great sense of accomplishment.
Food “Success:” For me, this means that I get in 3 meals and two snacks every day. Each snack must include a bit of protein, each meal has a fruit or vegetable. Since my life is so hectic, these smalls feats are HUGE things. I don’t stress. I try to keep to normal portion sizes (like what it says on the label, or the internet). At the end of the day, if I have accomplished this, it means that I have not experienced extreme crashes of hunger by going too long without eating, and that I have nourished my body so that things like flipping tires are possible!
Sorry for the randomness of this post, just wanted to get an update in! Follow along on social media sites if you want to see what we are up to this weekend!
