I’ve had these on my mind for a week or so, but I’m just now getting around to writing them down. Not all of them are quantifiable, but they’re important nonetheless. Here goes:
I live where it’s hot almost all year round. As a result, I am constantly chasing my kids around with their water bottles. It’s easy to forget about myself though. One of the tools I use to keep myself on track is the fabulous app Waterlogged (Android or iTunes). It’s super easy to set up and if you’re keen, the app can remind you throughout the day to drink more or log the liquid you’ve consumed. I aim for 75 ounces (2.2 L) per day just for my normal activity, but on days that we’re outside a good bit or days that I exercise, I shoot for more. While this “Tech Tuesday” app is not revolutionary, it may be helpful to you too.
- #30DaysofKBs from Jen Sinkler makes me stupidly happy. I wasn’t able to complete the days consecutively and am instead working through them as I’m able. I had forgotten how much I love kettlebells and this was a perfect way for me to reintroduce them to my work-outs now that the little ones are getting older
- It’s hot here, but my internal temperature gauge has adjusted. It was ~95F yesterday and I was walking around in jeans, sandals, and a chiffony tank/shirt. I was warm, but wasn’t sweating the buckets I thought I would
- Baby girl is getting her one-year needles today and I’m more upset about that as a marker of her age than I was on her actual birthday. My baby isn’t going to be a baby much longer. #prototoddler
