I'm feeling sassy today, so here's a sassy picture of me 😂😂! Last night I did something uber crazy and exciting, I'll share the details of that event later, and the feelings of excitement carried into my workout this morning 👊🏼. I worked my upper body and core (mostly core) then hit the streets for a fast-ish 3 solo miles, followed by 2 relaxed miles with @gus.the.beagle. My half is just 1 short week away and I'm feeling excited and ready to go run 13.1 miles 😁🙌🏼!

If I was a real #instagrammom I would be sitting with them in my distressed jeans drinking coffee out of my mug that says #boymom . Like, the mug would have a hashtag on it, probably in cursive glitter.
Sometimes it's hard to find things to talk about with your 16 year old. He mentioned that they were popcorn reading (😡😡😡) The Scarlett Letter in English... so I think I'll listen to it while driving to get the little boys. Whether he thinks it's stupid or not, we will be able to talk about it.
I get asked a lot about what the boys eat and the answer is just what we eat!
Now I'm not saying that it doesn't come without some resistance and some bargaining at times depending on what I put in front of them but I keep offering and MAKE them try it.
And NO I haven't cut out ALL treats but I have swapped out what we used to eat, certain brands or foods all together, for better options because they are out there!
Yes they still have cookies and muffins but now when possible I make them with ingredients that I can control OR I make sure that I know what the ingredients are if they are pre-made.
Just like how I focus on my own nutrition the MAJORITY of their food that is our house is low processed, fresh, clean, organic options.
And this change did not happen over night-it really was a year long process of trying new things and swapping out everyday items. But overtime this way of eating just became the norm and now it's no big deal, they don't feel deprived and I know thy are healthier for it!
Here is a peek at Murphy's lunchbox for today.
though we never knew what gender baby was until he arrived, miller was his/her name all along. keeping our baby’s name a secret our entire pregnancy was one of my favorite surprises ever . . . because the minute we shared that he was a HE, we shared that he was named after two men brian and i admire so much for many reasons, my father and grandfather. no matter the length of time he gets with both his grandfather and great grandfather i pray he always know their hearts and finds them to be the role models that they are to me.
