{A New "Currently" Post}

Obsessing over...

Hmmm...I'll be honest...I'm obsessing over my weight. It's contradicting to the whole point of these posts, but it's good to be honest with yourself. I think it's hard for anyone to be completely satisfied with everything, all of the time. It's not like crazy, oh my gosh I'm so fat, obsessed. It's more like man I really wish I could hop on the healthy train and stay on it. More veggies less fast food and sweets. Why is it so hard to eat healthy?! If you do eat healthy(on a regular basis) what are your tricks? 

***This ^^^ is my second post from when I started doing these "currently" posts. I literally was going to write my weight this time around, but then I read this and now I'm laughing at myself. I wrote this pre-pregnancy, pre-ever-even-considering-having-a-baby, pre-stretchmarks, pre-birth, pre-breastfeeding, pre-everything! If I thought I was "heavy" then, I was crazy. Which makes me realize that if I think I'm heavy now, I'm being too hard on myself. I am heavier, 15lbs heavier, but I'm working on it. Slowly, but surely.

Working on...

Our home. We've been painting and I recently painted the front door a bright, fun color. If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen it. We've been working on the yard like crazy too.

Thinking about...

Building a pergola in our backyard, over our patio. I would just LOVE to have one. I'd hang stringy lights, I'd hang a hammock (or maybe a hammock-chair), I'd add flowers and maybe even flow-y curtains. Ahh it would be so beautiful and such a good place to relax. Kory, are ya out there? ;)


We really don't have anything too exciting coming up. Henry's baptism is finally happening but that's still a couple of months out. I'd say his birthday, but that's even farther out. That's been rolling around in my head for weeks though. Big or small? Our house or venue? Food or no food? Smash cake or one cake? Oh the decisions!!

Listening to...

To be honest, Dino Dan is on in the background and although I'm not watching it and Henry is napping, I heard part of it and thought to myself, "I've seen this one before." There is definitely something wrong with me. Dino Dan is the worst. I don't know why I even turn these things on, Henry clearly has no interest and shouldn't be watching tv anyway. Le sigh.


What am I not eating? Everything goes into my mouth. Food is so good. Which is why my new mantra is "It's just food." I'm really trying to cut back. I want to focus on portion control for now. It's just foooood. Again, who am I??


We could go to the beach. I don't know why, but I have been daydreaming about the beach. It's been years since I've been and I am a huge fan of the beach. Sometimes I really think I'd like to live in a beach town. I'm sure visiting the beach right now with a baby wouldn't be all that it's cracked up to be...sticky sunscreen, sand in every Henry roll...sweat rolling into our eyeballs...but I still think it could be fun, just for a couple of days. 

What's going on with you guys lately? What are you wishing for, eating and working on??

  1. I am wishing for some great patio furniture for our back deck. Would love to be out there more.

    Currently eating: focusing a lot on green smoothies, protein and staying away from too many carbs. But i also have a killer sweet tooth, so that's been my achilles heel so to speak!

    Currently working on: This weekend, we're building the boys a sand box! YAY

  2. I can totally relate to the weight! I sure would love to lose the rest of my baby weight, but I love to eat! It's a struggle and so hard. It's coming off slowly, but very slow because I'm sure not trying hard.

    1. Me too! I'm getting ready to start a whole new series on it! I'll document my weight loss, my workouts and my meals. You'll have to follow along!
