When I get busy, my poor blog suffers! I apologize for not being around much lately. I had several comments awaiting me (thanks, readers!) so thanks for not giving up on me when things are quiet. In thanks for stopping by, I present to you this little gem of a video. My hubby (who blogs at Plaid Dad Blog) and I review our second subscription box–a Bulu box. It’s PG-13 and I may have peed in my pants a little bit from all the laughter.
April has been beyond busy. I am a co-advisor for our homeschool co-op yearbook and we finally finished up the book and ordered it last weekend. That was a huge sigh of relief and I’m so glad to have that off my plate. Aaron and I had foster care class every Saturday (including three weeks when I had to work the Friday night before!) and we have one more this weekend to finish up. The little girls had recital pictures. We celebrated Easter. We’ve had dentist and orthodontic appointments. And then there were the two weeks that I picked up extra shifts and my two Mondays of grand jury duty.
Yes, it has been a crazy month for our family. I am looking forward to May when things will slow down a little bit for us and we can breath.
When things get busy, I go into survival mode and for me that means ordering out/eating out. A lot. We have been eating so much on the go lately and we haven’t been taking care or ourselves. This week is a turning point for us. I actually ran on the treadmill yesterday for the first time since December. FOUR MONTHS. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be but I am a long way from running another half marathon! I’m trying to be optimistic and believe all that “muscle memory” stuff I’ve heard about. I hope my muscles have great long term memory. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve ran more than 3 miles!
I love checking my stats to see how many miles I’ve walked and how many calories it has estimated that I have burned. It’s a great tool and a great motivator.
Here is a screenshot from yesterday:
So that’s life in the Simply Healthy Mama/Plaid Dad house. Have you ever tried a subscription box service? If so, did you like it? I’m looking for a few more to review. And how about you FitBit users! Let’s get connected! Send me a message or leave a comment!
