I can't believe that I have not posted in almost a month! WHOOPS!!! And so much has happened, I almost don't know where to start. But like any story I will start at the beginning.
One of my goals for 2016 is to get through an entire month of WHole30. Hubby and I started, and I made it....through Day 16. That day he decided to go to the 7am CrossFit class. Which left me getting the kids fed and dressed for school on a day that I had to work as well. (Remember how I said I started working as a sub at their school??) While he usually takes them to the same building that I am working, getting there 30 minutes before to read the lesson plans and get acquainted with the room helps me start the day in a non-frantic fashion. So I got through that, and then he came home late. I was so burned out of cooking every.single.meal. I needed to just heat up some pizza and devour some chocolate cake. I broke. But I seriously learned a lot on my eating habits, what I like (ranch dressing!), and what I don't like (coffee without sugar is just not worth it). When we move, I can see us replenishing our pantry with healthier foods and maintaining a 80/20 lifestyle.
Running has been extremely hard during this winter. On February 1st, it was 63-degrees, so I ran into Cambridge that day in shorts and a t-shirt. This past weekend, the low was around -7 degrees. Hmmmmm..... So I have been spending a lot of time at the gym working out on the elliptical and bike. Keeping my cardio up is the plan for now. I am not sure how my plans will fall out for the Winter Vacation we are on this week. But I am certainly trying my best.
