My weekend in a post

28 Jan

A weekend in a post…

Thursday night I hit the gym and manged to crawl my way through my treadmill work out. I don’t know why I have been having such a hard time finding my motivation lately but its killin me!!

I barely got in 3 miles on the treadmill and I WISH I could say I ran all three but it was more like walk-jog-walk-crawl. But I did make it to the 5:45pm SuperFit class at my gym and it was Ab night!! WOOT WOOT

Boy am I sore.

Friday I really really really didn’t want to go work out. I could think of a million other things that needed my attention but I went. Yes, I forced my self to go and once I got started I was able to run about 2 miles on the treadmill. It felt good to have a little motivation back. It’s probably all the Dove chocolates that are slowing me down.

and yes that is just want I wanted to do, close my eyes and relax! No relaxing for me, we had our friend’s 8 year old sons birthday party to attend at Alfy’s pizza. Just what I needed, pizza and cake… total BUTT FAT!!

I had every intention to get up Saturday morning and hit the gym for the 8am SuperFit class… But oh no, my body decided to sleep in.

My Nathan Boy Boy was not feeling well and the weather is horrible outside so we took a lazy day. We made play dough and you can get the recipe Here. It was so easy and we had so much fun!!

The hubs and I had planned to take Nathan bowling with some friends but when we got there, there was a two and half hour wait! Yikes! No thank you!
So we took the kiddos to the Absolute Air Park and boy did they have so much fun.



The place was split up into three areas. The first part is made of several trampolines where the kids can just jump around. The second part was the foam pit, where our kids spent most of their time. And the third part was an area for dodgeball. I really liked that they not only had rules to keep kids safe but they also had a “don’t be a jerk” rule. For example when our kids were playing dodgeball, remind you Nathan is 7 years old and most of the kids playing dodgeball were older teenagers, one of the big kids hit Nathan’s friend in the back with ball. As he was walking off the trampoline the ref/worker said it didn’t count because he was a “jerk”. I thought it was pretty cool to really give the younger kids a chance to play and enjoy themselves.

Sunday was mostly a lazy day. We had lunch with my family and I spent a little time prepping food for the week.


I washed, chopped and stored all the fruits and veggies. It makes it so easy to grab and go during the busy work week. I also prepared a crock pot dinner for Monday night, which I will blog about tomorrow.

So there’s my weekend in a post…



Just a doughy kind of day

26 Jan

Because it’s cold out…
Because it’s pouring rain out…
Because my boy boy is feeling sick…
Because it’s just one of those days…

We made Play Dough!
My aunt sent me this awesome recipe to make our own home-made play dough.

Aunties Play Dough

1 cup flour
¼ cup salt
1 cup cold water
2 Tblsp. Cream of tartar
1 Tblsp. Vegetable oil
food coloring
Mix flour, salt and cream of tartar in a medium pot.
Mix in water, oil and food coloring.

Heat on stove over low to medium heat and stir until it looks like mashed potatoes (3-5 minutes).
Knead on a floured surface. Store in airtight container.

Nathan decided to use Green and Black. We had planned to make more colors but we ran out of Cream of Tartar. I didn’t realize the small container of Cream of Tartar would only give us two sets of play dough. This is a super easy recipe and Nathan had a blast, kept him entertained for a few hours.

He even made this truck that he wants to keep forever and ever!!

I just love my boys!
