What's Up Wednesday

Time for another installment of What's Up Wednesday with Shay, Mel and Sheaffer!



What We're Eating This Week:

Monday was burgers on the grill
Tuesday was french toast and bacon
Wednesday is pizza twists
Thursday is cheeseburger soup
Friday will be some sort of fish.

Nothing super fancy, but suppers that everyone loves!

I'm also all into my popcorn again.  It's been months since I've mad good ole fashioned (homemade) popcorn.  I use coconut oil and LOVE the flavor!

What I'm Reminiscing About:

Tonight we had an open house sort of evening at the new school that Alayna and Emma will be attending next year.  Rachel made the move this school year, and next the other two will join her next fall.  Which means I will have TWO high schoolers and a middle schooler.  Ugh.  How does that happen?

What I'm Loving:

Getting back into working out!!!  I've been doing so good the last two weeks with working out 4 days a week.  I've been getting up around 4:30 to get on the treadmill for 15-20 minutes and then sometimes again when I get home from work.  I'm slowly working my way into running again, and its surprisingly going really well!

This week has had AMAZING weather, finally.  Mousey and I are excited to resume our nightly bike/walks.  We got out there tonight and it was so beautiful!

What We've Been Up To:

Continuing to finish up the basement, everything is ordered and hopefully in a couple weeks we'll have flooring!

What I'm Dreading:

Nothing I can think of right now!

What I'm Working On:

Apparently you can't eat all the foods on vacation and come back the same weight.  Who knew?  I'm currently working on losing what I gained.  I had gotten SUPER lax with my workouts and eating, so it's game on again!

What I'm Excited About:

Finishing our basement!  I sound like a broken record, but I am seriously SO excited!  I have not had my own finished space in this house and I am stoked to finally have my craft room/office.

What I'm Watching/Reading:

I still haven't watched the final "This Is Us", so I need to do that yet, but besides that and Survivor, there isn't anything we really keep up on.  We've started taping "Fixer Upper" and watching that in the mornings instead of the news.  The news is far too depressing and not a way I want to start our day.

I am currently reading a few books...

"Women Living Well" by Courtney Joseph.  I am really loving this book, she's a  Christian author and talks about what it means to be a wife, mother and child of God.

I also just started "The Practice House" by Laura McNeal.  I am just in the beginning pages, but so far I really like it!

What I'm Listening To:

Continuing to love Pandora, these are my current favorite stations:
Christian Rock Radio
80's Rock Radio
Johnny Cash Radio
Bluegrass Radio
Gillian Welch Radio
Love the mix of all of these!

What I'm Wearing:

Nothing special.  I just ordered the Ab-solution jeans from Wit and Wisdom, I LOVE these jeans and already have them in black.

What I'm Doing This Weekend:

Volleyball, volleyball and more volleyball.  Rachel and Alayna both play on Saturday, that should be tricky, they are in the same area, just different neighboring towns.  Sunday Rachel has to work concessions and then I have my nieces confirmation.  Busy busy!

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:

It's my birthday month!!  Yes I said month, not day.  Don't judge.

Linking up with Friday Favorites too!

Ugh I'm back on the struggle bus with you! I ate whatever I wanted for 2 weeks instead of sticking with my calorie limit on My Fitness Pal, and I gained 6 pounds (plus I'm on steroids, so that doesn't help!) I'm right there with you- we can do this! Happy almost birthday month (I need to incorporate that into my house!)

I'm working on getting back in shape too and it is tough! I started doing T25 and walking on my stepper in the mornings this week and it seems to be helping. Here's to hoping we both keep it up!

I'm sure you are excited about the finished basement! We LOVE ours. It's perfect to keep the kids messes out of sight, lol.

We've been eating popcorn a lot lately too! Such a good healthy snack!
