I opted for yoga, again, this morning.  I "tweaked" my back pretty well on Saturday and I still didn't feel ready for weights or intense cardio. .
.
The 30 minute yoga "flow" workout went really quickly.  It's a nice change to have no idea what's coming up next .  Also, I learned the difference between a Cobra and Upward Facing Dog, so that feels like progress.  I'm still a yoga beginner and it shows if you swipe left to see the video of me in action. 😉  But the main objectives were:
1) to maintain my morning routine
2) get a workout done (it's a great way to start the day)
3) do something low impact and with some stretching
.
.
So...mission accomplished!  And I was done before 5 AM. .
.
I love all of the workout options available to me at home and on my time. .
.
Have a great Wednesday!

Dividing and conquering has been our "normal" the last 6 years. The Tweedles had their recorder and chorus concerts last night; daddy busted hiney home just to get P's tie tied and change out of his uniform, and then loaded munchkins in the submarine for the shows. I hung back with A and BB ... we hung more Christmas decor and I spent 2 more hours on the phone with @target about our paid for yet never received giftcard. 🤷‍♀️ Life is what you make of it. And my life is BLESSED!! 💗

FINDING OUT OUR BABY'S GENDER
•
At the beginning of my pregnancy we were sure the baby would be a boy. In part we hoped for it, in part we had a perception that made us feel that way.
Not for a special reason - one thing helping was probably the fact that for a couple of years ago we got kind of a "sign" telling us our first child would be a boy.
•
I actually didn't want to know the gender. But hubby really couldn't resist and after long discussions we decided to compromise and find out in a funny way.
•
After living the experience of the first ultrasound, the gender question became irrelevant, and suddenly all that mattered was the health and wellbeing of our baby.
Boy or girl would really mean the same for both of us.
•
When we finally cut that cake for some weeks ago and saw the blue color we felt thrilled and overwhelmed: we are expecting a BOY!
•
It feels so new since most of the people we know that have had kids in the last years have had girls, and both of our families are known to be more "girl-populated"😂
But we are extremely grateful and excited to live this adventure together. Plus, we had been right from the start!😁
•
We can't wait to meet you since we're already madly in love with you, son💙

Dude night(minus the littlest one) while @flex.ft_lei is at school!!!!
#comicbookfiendclub #marvelmovies #igcomicfamily #imagecomics #marvelcomics #boydad #dadlife #lovemydudes
Tonight is night ONE of our new bedtime routine with Mission: get Austin to stop screaming and crying as we exit the room.
He’s kind of always whined a little bit as we left his room after reading books and tucking him in, giving all of our hugs and kisses.... But lately, like for the last month at least, he’s been a screaming mess every time we leave the bedroom. Setting himself up at his bedroom door just losing it. 
Basically if we don’t want to have him screaming for an hour, someone has to lay in there with him until his tired little eyes shut and he is sound asleep... that takes at least an hour and doesn’t really promote healthy independent falling asleep habits. 
So we are switching it up with what the inter web calls “a consistent nighttime routine”. Tbh I thought we already had a good one going but clearly something needed to change, so we added bath time EVERY NIGHT instead of just a random bath schedule that no on really knew. Also instead of bath time right after dinner, we prolonged it to about 45 mins before bedtime. This way we can do jammies, teeth, books, nighttime hugs & love 💕 and BAM! Sleep tight....or so we are hoping.
Currently Ryan is trying to diffuse a tantrum.. pray for us 🙏🏼 (not exactly looking for advice but if this routine thing doesn’t work I’ll let you know and if only then that happens, feel free to plop your parenting advice onto my post! 😊) #loveyaanyways

Transformation Tuesday
.
.
I'm looking for old pictures of myself and all I can find are a few stupid looking ones that Google photos uploaded without me knowing. 🤣  Ah well.  There was a reason I was usually behind the camera and taking pictures of my kids and my wife. .
.
For years, I was stuck and gradually gaining weight.  I was stuck on the idea that I NEEDED to go to the gym, but I just didn't have time to get there.  I wasn't willing to give up family time in the evenings for it, anyway and mornings didn't work after we had our 2nd child. .
.
When I finally hit 210 lbs and became officially OBESE, it was time to figure something out.  I started working out at home doing streaming workouts with NO EQUIPMENT at all...in my basement.  They were ON DEMAND, just like Netflix, so I could do them any time that was convenient (which fo me was usually after kids were in bed for the night around 9:30 or 10 PM.  But all I had to do was go down to my basement, not spend time driving to the gym and back. .
.
To be honest, I wasn't really sure it would work, but I'd seen before and after pictures (just like in the old infomercials) and needed something, so gave it a try.  I lost 40 lbs, kept it off and am in the best shape of my life. .
.
Now, I pay it forward by helping others  get the same kind of results, on their own time and in their own home (or wherever it's convenient).
.
.
If you're stuck like I was, it's time to get UNSTUCK!  It only takes  afew minutes per day and a bit of consistency to get results of your own!

3 years. 3 different looks. We enjoy being festive as much as we enjoy dressing up. Although I’ll take lounging in comfy clothes as much as possible.

Are you a dress up type of person or are you more jeans, T-shirt’s, shorts and tanks type of person?

Thankful for these two right here...my shoulder was giving me some trouble after work yesterday so I asked my wife to help me out. A couple drops of Panaway topped with some Orthoease had me feeling right this morning! #younglivingessentialoils #yleo #panaway #orthoease #menuseoilstoo #oilydad #boydad #boydadlife #igotamassagetoo #freemassage
If "getting to the gym" is causing you stress...just don't go. 😉
.
.
Seriously!  You can get an effective workout without the gym, with no equipment and on your own schedule!
.
.
I was stuck on the idea that in order to do my fitness, I had to get to the gym.  We had a gym membership and I was going pretty regularly up until our son was born, but then I kept paying for it for about a year and a half longer, even after I wasn't going anymore. .
.
Every month I'd keep thinking, "I'll try to find time next month...and I don't want to have to pay the joining fee, again." The joining fee at our local gym was $299, but they'd often give a few months of free membership along with that.  Anyway, month after month went by and it was causing me stress knowing that I was paying $50 per month to NOT go to the gym.  Until I finally did cancel, after a year and a half, and just gave up on my fitness all together (also not a good option). I gradually gained weight from 175 lbs to 210 lbs while doing no real exercise at all. 😕 .
.
I was still stuck on the idea of "THE GYM", until finally I got unstuck and found the streaming workouts I'm doing now.  They're awesome and can be done anywhere (even outside the skating rink while my daughter skates or in Europe while on vacation) and any time of the day or night.  Right now, I'm working out around 4 AM, but I don't have to drive to the gym and back so it saves a lot of time. .
.
Results are what counts and it REALLY works!  It totally changed my life!  If you want to know more, I'm happy to tell you more.  And if you need some added fitness accountality, I have a group going and you're welcome to jump in!  It helps a lot with consistency and results. .

I forget this so often it's not funny. Trying to be it all, what I envisage as the "perfect mum".
•
There's the saying going around
"A mother is expected to work like she doesn't have children and raise her children like she doesn't have a job"
•
And I hate this saying, not because there are environments where this is true but because it makes mums put this level of pressure on themselves.
•
I also hate it because it pushes dads into the background AGAIN when that isn't the way it is anymore! 
I know so many dads that bust their butts not just as much as some mums do, but in many cases more so, because there is this stupid measuring stick society has put out there for dads, like they have to "measure up" to how a mum would do it.
And it is not right.
•
This quote from Sue Atkins brought snapped me out of my "perfect mum" obsession and back into my "real parent" mode. •
It's not about the clean houses, homemade everything, trendiest decor, not a hair out of place lifestyle (unless that is what you rock!).
•
It is about making a mess, going exploring, getting dirty, being lazy, getting crazy but most of all, being a parent is about being there for your child.
•
It is about going in to swing for them when they need you.
It is about letting them wear their clothes to bed because they don't want to change clothes.
It is about teaching them to be curious, kind and confident.
•
It is about remembering to bond with your child the way you wanted to be when you were a child.
It is about you and your child/ren.

And it is not right. • This quote from Sue Atkins brought snapped me out of my "perfect mum" obsession and back into my "real parent" mode. • It's not about the clean houses, homemade everything, trendiest decor, not a hair out of place lifestyle (unless that is what you rock!). • It is about making a mess, going exploring, getting dirty, being lazy, getting crazy but most of all, being a parent is about being there for your child. • It is about going in to swing for them when they need you. It is about letting them wear their clothes to bed because they don't want to change clothes. It is about teaching them to be curious, kind and confident. • It is about remembering to bond with your child the way you wanted to be when you were a child. It is about you and your child/ren.
Been thinking about this a lot lately. I don't know if the American Church will ever be able to overcome the consumer culture we live in. But I do know there is a growing movement of people who are desperately seeking God outside of the Sunday show. The American Church culture expects those people to come to our buildings and over or rules before they can be part of it. What if every church goer was told they have a responsibility to plant a church in their own neighborhood and pastor it? Would we still have buildings full of thousands of people every Sunday? Maybe not, but we would have churches of thousands meeting in homes.

When he isn’t too busy partying, my son loves to work with me. It’s pretty much my favorite. #boydad #justlikedaddy #fatherson #work #hardwork
I can’t remember the last time I did a #MCM 😂 but this guy deserves a shoutout! @jschneider_fj 💙 To the “Instagram husband”, soulmate, baby daddy and my knight in shining Harley Davidson gear ✨😍😂 I don’t know what I would do without you 😘😍 #daddyandme #boydad #burtsbeesbaby

Posting this on social media in hopes my husband sees it and is reminded how much fun we had for a few hours without a kid asking to be washed, to be wiped, to ask algebra common core math questions, to ask if Santa got their list.🤭🤣.. so he could plan another date with me😁
It’s so easy to slip to remember to talk to each other as lovers and not as mom and dad. When we arrived and sat down to enjoy our drinks, I had to force myself not to talk about the kids, and just concentrate on him, on us, our wants and our little bitty dreams. 
I don’t remember now what we ended up talking about but something funny came up and it was just so, so good to hear and see him laugh like we were teenagers again.
Hard to explain, but for a hot moment I just stared at the man laughing in front in front of me with a drink in his hand and I wanted to give him a million kisses and gobble him up. #nom 💙 #parenthood #storiesformysons @barhugonyc #wtc

Holden has really improved since his first season of coach pitch. This hitting camp has been super beneficial to improving his hitting skills. #baseball #hitting #coachpitch #boydad #prouddad
He's in his happy place. The marina at @pretendcity is probably his favorite place in the world. If there is one silver lining to getting laid off, it is getting to be with this guy every day. Everything seems a lot less awful when he is around. .

I am proud of Jay. He’s never worked so hard for something. He’s been talking about getting his first stripe for a while now. I love watching him roll. Now if his mom and I can just channel that same energy and focus on his chores and school 🤦🏻‍♂️ @annabnana_87 #bjj #buddyboy #boydad #dadlife #son #juijitsu

This morning was a "Yoga day" for my workout.  They're few and far between.  I kind of liked it, in the end, but will be back to weights or cardio again, tomorrow.

Never Miss a Monday!
.
.
Ok...let me start by saying that "Yoga is not my jam". 😉  But it seemed likea  good way to start out the week, this morning. .
.
I woke up and my back was still sore from something I did on the weekend and I didn't want to miss a Monday, so I decided that a Yoga routine would be low-impact and the stretching would help things out, too. (But generally I'd rather do some intense Cardio or lift weights).
.
.
In the end it was kind of fun...something totally different than I'm used to doing.  And I was impressed with the yoga skills of some of the trainers. .
.
For me, I think I finally learned the difference between Warrior 1, 2 and 3 and I got some extra work on stretching and balance, which are good for any aspect of life. .
.
The morning workout is always a great way to start the day!  And we never miss a Monday!

So ... who’s ready for Christmas? 🙋🏼‍♀️
We started something new this year and I’m excited to continue it for years to come. 
Each of our kids got an afternoon with my husband and I. They picked the store (or stores in a couple of cases) they wanted to go to (each kid wanted to go to tractor supply for at least one gift) shopped for their name draws and siblings (and dog) and then we either went out for ice cream or dinner. To spend the time with them one on one, and to hear what they want to buy their siblings and why is something we’ll continue. It was the BEST. 😍😍
What are some of your traditions?? I love hearing what other families do.

Still Man Crushing on a Monday 
9 years and counting. Who knew when we were only 19 I would have the honor one day to call you my friend, Husband, partner and crime. 
Today Noah also is blessed to have you as his Daddy. The long work hours, lovely diaper changes, 2am wake dates to comfort little man definitely isnt unnoticed. We love you Daddy. Keep making us proud 🖤 - The Anderson Clan

There’s only 3 weeks left in 2018! It also only takes 21 days to create a habit. I know most will look at these last 21 days and think they’ll enjoy them as much as possible before making their New Years resolutions which I understand. It’s hard to imagine having to give something up that you enjoy so do your best to change your mindset before 2019 is here!

Instead of thinking about what you are giving up begin thinking about what you can gain from those New Years resolutions! It’s easy to look at what you want to quit or lose but if you focus more on what you can achieve then maybe you’ll create new habits which will help you achieve your goals!

I understand the idea of losing weight, quitting those bad habits, giving up sugar, etc but if you’re focused on what you’re giving up then your chances of succeeding aren’t as great! I’ve given up some old habits in the past and I’ve failed at it before because I was focused on what I had given up and how hard it was instead of paying attention to what I had gained.

I challenge you over the next 21 days to shift your mindset from what you’ll be giving up in 2019 to start thinking what you can gain in 2019!
