Oh yeah it's Thursday once again! Time for your dose of random thoughts from Fancy Nancy! A huge thanks to you all for the birthday wishes! I celebrated with my family and this weekend the hubby and I are going out!
Home Gym Benefits...There are many benefits to having a home gym...you can work out whenever you want...you can work out when your children are nestled snug in their beds...you can jam out to your favorite music and no one has to know it's Jock Jams!! This week I have noticed some added benefits. You can exercise in whatever get-up you choose...your home gym is truly a "Judgement Free Zone" especially when it is in the basement! You don't have to worry about looking bad (i.e. makeup streaming down your face or bed head galore)! You can roll out of bed and onto the treadmill in 2 minutes flat...don't do that though since it could make for an interesting warm-up! Do you work out at home? Any hidden benefits you notice?
Aubrey Update..We went to a specialist yesterday and it is looking like surgery for her eye is the best option. We will be working with a team of doctors including a plastic surgeon and a vascular abnormality specialist at Children's. While is scares the daylights out of me I know two things are true...we will be at the best hospital in the country and most importantly God is on His throne and is thankfully in control! It's frustrating to be back at work when all I want to do is hold her and take care of her. I'm thankful her dad rocks and he is so great at being a dad!!
Paleo Shmaleo...So I've been very intrigued by Paleo eating lately...probably because everyone and their mother is eating that way right now...but this week I have tried to loosely follow the principles of it. The challenge really for me isn't cutting out the grains and such (although is carrot cake a grain because it was my birthday!). Really the challenge has been dairy which is surprising to me. To me though it is not much different, minus the dairy, than how I used to eat before...you know before I was pregnant and told myself to enjoy this time! So I'm wondering...am I missing something? Is this just the same diet that continues to circulate just with a different name? Either way I am on track and am going to have to spend some quality time with Pinterest this weekend to get some dinner ideas. Any suggestions...please pass them on! Like anything else it is all about prep and having healthy choices ready.
