Friday Fun!

Living healthy natural lives is not always the easiest thing, which is why I started my blog - to inspire and help others live their best life healthfully and naturally. Friday Fun is my way of sharing a bit of my life with you, my readers and friends, and I hope you will be willing to share your thoughts and ideas with me too.

So, here we go!

In my life this week...
Well, this week got cold very fast! We have been having near freezing temps at night, and I am scared for my poor garden! We planted spaghetti squash and beans quite late, and I am still hoping they will survive for about another month.

Last week was a fun week! It my husband and my birthdays! We had a fun time celebrating, including going to a delicious new restaurant featuring lots of local and organic food and visiting a free conservatory, which was absolutely so peaceful and beautiful. We both agree that although we are another year older, we do NOT feel any older than we were 10 years ago. Age is just a number, right?

I am inspired by...
wives and mothers who are doing a better job than I am at loving their husbands as they should. I am a work in progress...

My favorite thing this week was...
hearing my baby's heartbeat! Yes, I know I am 26 weeks pregnant, but we had a little scare with the baby's heartbeat, and so this was pure music to my ears!

What's working/not working for me...
Working - I am juggling more at work than normal, with a few new personal training clients and new sessions of small group training starting soon. But, I absolutely love what I do, so it is exciting. I have the help of my wonderful husband with watching the kids while I work or helping pick up at my work. I could not do it without him.

Not working -I have been feeling much more pregnant this week than normal - some backaches, a lot of round ligament pain, a cramp here and there - nothing to complain about - but it reminds me I might have to slow down a little sometime. Ha! :-)

Questions/thoughts I have...
I am constantly wondering how to help my children develop self-control. They really struggle with this; granted, they are all ages 6 and under, but I want to help them solve their problems and develop control over their emotions.

I'm reading...
Unglued Devotional by Lysa TerKerst, One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, lots of other historical fiction books, and I am still reading through one chapter of the Bible a day, now I am in Luke.

I'm cooking...
This week I tried out a new recipe, and it was a hit! I made my own paleo barbecue sauce, poured it over homemade grass-fed beef meatballs, and left it in the slow cooker for about 2 hours. Delicious!!! I also bought some squash, since ours are not quite ready, and we are craving squash. I plan to make spaghetti squash and with meat sauce tonight. Yum! Otherwise, lots of cucumbers, tomatoes, and herbs fresh from the garden.

I'm grateful for...
birthdays, moments of happiness with my kids, patience during the unhappy moments with my kids, forgiveness, sweatshirts, blankets, work that I love, new recipes, Paleo on the Go, and so much more!

  1. Glad all of you had a wonderful birthday celebration. I know quite a few people who had birthdays this week too! And one of my friends welcomed a new grandchild who was born this week. Happy Birthday to all of you.

  2. We have a great local restaurant that serves organic and local foods. And they make the best desserts. It's always a treat to eat there.
