Well, the whole Fourth of July thing went by in a blur for me! I didn't go to see fireworks, or a parade, and I didn't go to any cookouts.
My new baby nephew was born on the Fourth!! He is the most precious thing since my other nephew was born. Just an adorable tiny scrunchy human. I love him. And he shares his birthday with my momma! Now we have two firecrackers in the family :)
In other more blog-land related news, I have so far made it a week on my mostly clean-eating change! I haven't really "cut out" too much stuff, though switching to gluten free has been interesting (dear Olive Garden - make gluten free breadsticks ASAP!!) due to me not being able to eat like ninety percent of my favorite foods. I've been cheating a bit on the gluten because I can't find gluten free sandwich wraps that I like, but I did find some HUGE ones that were only 80 calories so I'll take it. I have also managed to "work out" every day for the past four days without injury, though working out might be an exaggeration. Going from a mostly sedentary lifestyle to one filled with exercise is no joke...it's hard to even push myself to get out there and WALK at a decent pace for 20-30 minutes, but I just have to keep reminding myself that it takes baby steps and as long as I'm pushing myself to keep getting out there and doing it, it's better than sitting on my couch because it takes me too long to walk a mile. Womp womp. Soooo basically, go me?
AND last but certainly not least, tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the PJ Party Swap over at Chaotic Goddess Swaps! Have you heard of these gals? About once per month they come up with a new fantastic swap opportunity and they're so fun! I haven't participated in a swap in a long while, so I'm particularly excited for this one!! Make sure to go over there and sign up!!
