Fitness Friday: A Walk in the Park

DSC_7297
The weather improved just enough to not completely freeze my ass off outside so James has been enjoying more walks. I’ve been trying to work out even more in preparation for the holiday season,  which is when I lose what little self control I have. Ever since Halloween hit, I’ve been indulging in a lot of candy and junk food. The increased access to miniature candies from Halloween opened up a blackhole of shit eating for me and I can’t escape it. Every day I tell myself “TODAY is the day you eat better and track your calories again” and with each passing day, I eat a cookie after breakfast and say “TOMORROW I will track my calories.” I signed up for a fitness challenge with FlexCity Fitness to maintain my weight through the holiday season though, so I’ll be using the challenge as motivation.

Toothbrushin’ with Sonicare

DSC_6406

I’ve always enjoyed the finer meals in life like a Snickers
bar, eating frosting out of the can and slowly sipping on cokes, all of which,
paired with my predisposed redneckness of terrible teeth, made me a poster
child for what not to do to ensure a mouth of cavities. 

While I still drink pop, I’ve cut back on the sweets significantly and have gotten so much better with flossing and was pumped to take my oral health up a notch with trying the Philips Sonicare PowerUp. It also has a self-timer of two minutes..which made me realize I need that timer to ensure I’m brushing for long enough.

Philips Sonicare sent me two brushes, one with a soft brush and one with a medium brush. So naturally, I enlisted Kyle to take part in the challenge to try the PowerUp with the medium brush and to take awkward photos of myself with toothbrush. It took me a day to get used to an electronic toothbrush, but I really like how clean my teeth and mouth feel. Kyle says “it’s good.” A man of few words.

James, the Indoor Dog

DSC_6852
This pup just loves this stool. It’s his second favorite spot, after my lap of course. It’s already snowy and freezing out so we’ve been enjoying many cozy days and evenings indoors together watching HGTV.

I replaced my white shaggy rug with a more practical version. With a dog and a dude, I needed something a little easier to clean stains and vacuum at least twice a week. I’m on the hunt for a reclaimed wood version instead of this $20 IKEA crap table which was missing some parts so I couldn’t even have the lower shelf piece.
