Coffee Talk: July

Can you believe it’s July?!!  I used to think that the 4th of July meant the summer was 1/2 over but it really isn’t.  There is still plenty of summer to be had!


I’m excited to be linking up for our monthly coffee date.   I‘m linking up with Coco @ Got 2 Run 4 MeLynda @ Fitness Mom Wine Country, & Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother

So grab a cup of coffee with me and let’s catch up since I’m not blogging as much these days due to summer fun!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that we’ve had some unseasonable cool weather here this week but I haven’t really minded.  It was weird to send Sara to camp with a jacket this week in July but the weather today and during the weekend is going to be awesome!  I can’t wait.  I’ve also loved my cooler morning since it’s made my runs that much better!  I am not a fan of hot humid running!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that yesterday I finally got my butt to a Dailey Method spin class!  I made it to 6am classes at the Dailey Method twice this week.  Right now with B’s napping and Sara’s camp schedule the 6am is really the best and only time for me to go in the middle of the week.

IMG_3903.JPGI’m not really a “spinner” but I’ve been wanting to try out this class for awhile.  It was 40 minutes on the bike and then 20 minutes of core, barre and weights.  Perfect workout!!  I felt amazing when I walked out at 7am!  I hope to continue to get to class 1-2 times a week.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I finished and completed The 30 Clean this week!



Actually, today is day 33 for me.  Just because the 30 days are over doesn’t mean things need to change.  I’m enjoying the clean eating lifestyle and feel wonderful!!  For me, doing the 30 was about cleaning up some poor eating habits and mindless snacking! The 30 brought me back to where I need to be!!  I’d proud of myself for getting through the challenge and so proud of the changes I have made!!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I officially became accepted as a breast milk donor and made my first donation of 104 ounces this week!



It feels great to be able to do something to help out little babies and mamas in need!

If we were having coffee I would tell you that B has been in full time cranial helmet mode since Sunday.


Yep, he’s wearing his cranial helmet to fix a flat spot on the back of head known as brachycephaly (aka flat head syndrome.)  He doesn’t mind the helmet and he is actually sleeping better!  We are expecting him to wear it about 4 months but he gets checked every couple of weeks.  Full time wear is 23 hours a day.  It comes off for one hour around dinner and bath time!

IMG_3900.JPGSpeaking of dinner… If we were having coffee, I would tell you that we just started food with B this last week. At 5 months he has now had oatmeal and carrots!  We are having lot of fun over here with food and I am venturing into the world of baby food making.  I didn’t do this with Sara so I am excited to be doing it with B!

If were we having coffee I would tell you about a new farmers market veggie burger that I am obsessed with.  I bought a case last Saturday and LOVE them!

IMG_3879.JPGI love keeping these burgers in my freezer for an easy lunch or dinner.  Buying by the case was the best.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I finished up the month of June with 89 miles!  It’s the most I have run in a month in over a year and I am thrilled that my mileage is getting back up there.  Here’s to many more months of good quality running!

So tell me what’s going on with you?

Enjoy the holiday!

    OMG that face! I know I say it every time I’m here, but SO cute! I’ll bet the Caveman could’ve used one of those helmets when he was a babe as he definitely has a flat spot. I’m sure helmets were not a thing back then. Yeah the lack of summer weather is draining. Nice mileage mama!

    I’m completely with you on the weirdly uncharacteristic “summer” weather! You are awesome for donating breast milk! <3!!

    I love the name of that veggie burger, hahaha. It sounds like it'll be delicious!!

  4. The cooler weather is great for running, but not much else! Where is summer?

  5. That veggie burger looks amazing! Such a cute little boy, love that smile! I did a Flywheel class for the first time and it was completely frightening and hard as heck but I was happy to survive the class! Hope you have a great weekend!
