Currently / / January

Starting | Yoga with Adriene’s 30 Day Yoga Challenge. She begins one every January and I felt like it’s the perfect way to reset my body. My left hip has been bothering me again (it pops out of it’s socket easily) and one way to alleviate my discomfort is strengthening all of the surrounding muscles.

I had this allusion that to workout effectively I needed to find time when Phoenix was asleep. But, honestly, I don’t want to use his bed or nap time to workout. Instead, I roll the mat out and Phoenix climbs on me while I’m in child’s pose.

Hoping | We all remain healthy this winter. The flu is running rampant around town and I pray we don’t get it. Phoenix and Jordan had colds in December, but thankfully their colds didn’t land them in the hospital like everyone I know who has had the flu!

Phoenix’s colds do lean towards turning into croup, but our humidifier and some essential oils appears to help. The key is keeping him from coughing.

Scheduling | I’m not working as much this month, so in-between beginning our taxes I also need to schedule doctors appointments. The dentist mainly.

Reading | I just finished Instructions for a Heatwave (which I really liked), but have yet to begin anything else. I’m sure I’ll discover a few recommendations from all of you!

Playing | Phoenix’s great-grandma and grandparents gifted him plates, bowls, cups and spoons for Christmas. He immediately started pretending to eat and drink from them. I’m having a lot of fun watching him begin playing imaginatively. I loved my play-kitchen as a child. Down-the-line, if we move to a bigger house, I’d like to clean to up and let Phoenix have it.

Linking with Anne.

  1. Hope you guys stay healthy through the season. Everyone around us is getting the flu or something like it lately; so far, we’ve escaped with only slight head colds.
    PS – My “Reads of 2017” post will be going up tomorrow.

  2. Little kids learning yoga moves is pretty much the cutest thing ever (Hendrik’s babysitter taught him downward dog and happy baby when he was 2 and I loved it), so there’s another reason to do your yoga challenge while Phoenix is around 🙂 I really should check into this 30 day challenge. I’ve seen a couple of people mention it, and it would definitely be good for me.

  3. I did two Yoga classes at the end of 2017 but with the holidays, etc. I couldn’t really fit it in for a few weeks. I’m meant to go back this Sunday with my friend though so I’m really hoping I can make this a routine. I need to find more ways to be active.


  4. Hmmm, maybe I should try my “workouts” (they’re not intense but I do end up sore because lunges/squats are hard, hence the quotation marks) with Aiden awake! I’ve been doing it during naptime but I bet it’d be fun (or funny) to have him climbing on me while I try to “work out.” Happy New Year, Catherine! 🙂

  5. I definitely need to check out the yoga challenge. I may or may not have grunted while trying to put on my boots this morning. Not my proudest moment!

    My kiddo got some play kitchen accessories for Christmas too, and it has been so fun to watch her taking sips out of the cups and cooking on her little kitchen. I hope you can get your play kitchen cleaned up for him!
