Our Life Lately

As if I didn't have a baby face enough, my cheek was swollen for almost a week after wisdom tooth surgery.

Lachlan + Summer = summer love. They have such a love-hate relationship. They almost act like siblings. Dewey babies forever.

He looked like a little farmer boy in his oshkosh overalls.

We went to Solvang for the first time and hung out with the Arntzes and Sniders! We rode the big family bikes around and went shopping in the boutiques.

This boy can't get enough seaweed.

Lachlan got his first freshly picked moccasins! I love that he can't take them off of his feet.

My little baseball boy

We went to the Monterey aquarium! I didn't plan it, but Lachlan has whales on his outfit.

We have fun, hospitable in-laws who got us into the aquarium for free. This is right as we were about to leave. Can you tell the kids were done?

My niece Opal. I love her gut. She's only 4 months old and weighs 4 pounds more than Lachlan

We made pizza at Nate and Izzy's. (Please don't judge my  "I just woke up from a Sunday nap hair")

Do you believe that these cousins are 4-1/2 months apart?

Still working out 6 times a week! Only 1 week left of Insanity!!! Then I'm going to start T25

I have arranged for Lachlan and Summer to be married.

This Pad Thai was to die for. And they put into a cool call. I can't get enough Asian food.

New Face

The blog has had a face lift! Thanks to the lovely Meg Fleshman.

I've been waiting to post while my blog was under construction.

Here is Meg's blog:

The Ink & Anchor

She also designed the blog of our family photographer:

BMW Photography

Obviously she does a great job, so you should get in contact with her! I love her story. She is a good person.

P.S. I will update more often now!

Team Beachbody Coach

So I'm a Team Beachbody coach now. I never thought I would become one, but I feel really good about my decision. I believe in the product, but more than just selling, I'm loving the relationships that I'm developing. I love helping people. I love reaching out to and talking to people about how they can eat clean. I love teaching others and learning at the same time. It was scary to commit at first, because I was always looking for a quick fix. This isn't a quick fix. It's a lifestyle change. But now that I've committed, I'm happy that I've found what's right for my body. I want Lachlan to see how I'm eating and exercising. I don't want him to see me dieting and binging, always unhappy with my body. I haven't been weighing myself, but I have less than 3 weeks left of Insanity. I've only skipped a day so far. So I don't know how much weight I've lost, but I can tell I'm a little more toned. More importantly, I just feel all around better.

I've been drinking shakeology for a month now and my body feels so much cleaner. I have much more energy. And I mean a lot more. Even if I have a bad night with Lachlan, I might feel a little sleepy the next day, but I don't feel drained like I used to. I have more confidence. I have less anxiety and depression. And it's all a mix of the endorphins from working out, helping others, having a healthier, stronger body, and finding something that is right for me. I'm not a pushy salesman. It took me a while to commit to Team Beachbody. So I understand that you probably have a lot of doubts too. But if you would like me to help you become more fit, I'd love to help you, whether you buy products under me or not. Because I really get satisfaction from helping you!
