things i’m working on

July 2, 2014


I’m working on Liam’s stocking. It’s progressing very nicely and I don’t think I’ll have a problem finishing this summer.

I’m working on getting 10,000 steps on my Fitbit each day. Without trying, I average 7500, depending on how busy we are at work. So to make my goal, I’ll probably have to add in a walk each evening.

I’m working on upping my pumping output. For me that means more water and timely pumping sessions. What else can I do?

I’m working on potty training Meredith. Actually it’s pretty much done, and it was quick & easy. I’ll share my “secrets” soon.

I’m working on making it halfway through Lonesome Dove (the book) by July 13 for book club. It’s a long one so we broke it up into two parts.

I’m working on waking up earlier. My kids are just really early risers so if I want any time alone in the morning it looks like I have to get up around 5. Kind of a bummer, but I’ve also been sleeping so great since starting whole30, so it’s not too hard.

I’m working on catching up on my podcast queue, and thinking about how I can add audiobooks back into my life.

I’m working on my personal style. I pretty much know what I like but I don’t have the wardrobe yet. Since I’m back down to my regular size I look forward to another closet purge and slowly adding pieces that I love.

I’m working on a letter to my pen pal.

I’m working on coordinating Meredith’s 3rd  birthday party. The plan is: family only, local park, evening, a few balloons, a banner, bubbles, grilling, and a big chocolate cake.

Post idea from Ali Edwards who is inspiring as always.

    From Word Lily:

    I want to hear about the potty training! We’re in the midst of it, mostly done but with a few sticking points that I’m not sure how to get past.

  2. 2

    From Kathleen:

    I’m going to write about it tomorrow, but I’m afraid my tips won’t really be THAT helpful. How old is A now?

  3. 3

    From Word Lily:

    He’s 26 months. We’re doing this right now because he decided he was ready, so …

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    Pumping — have you watching the “max production” video from Standford? You can google it — it does make a difference. Also I swear by lactation cookies (google “Noel Trujillo lactation cookies” for a good recipe)… yes, you have to use the brewers yeast. You can cut the sugar down by half.

    From Kathleen:

    I watched the video, and I do that! I already use my hands at the same time as pumping. Haven’t tried lactation cookies though, but I will once whole30 is over!

    From Jill:

    To boost my milk production, I upped my water and started taking fenugreek 3x/day and noticed an increase within a few days. Good luck. :)

    From Holly:

    I took fenugreek too, and noticed an increase. I’ve also heard oatmeal helps – not sure if that’s true, but I used it as an excuse to eat lots and lots of oatmeal cookies :D
