Work it Wednesday: Week 2 - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

Work it Wednesday: Week 2

WELCOME! I hope y'all enjoyed the Work It: Wednesday posts from last week, because I know I sure did!  I cannot even express how thankful I am that we as teachers get this time every year to focus on US! 

I am on Day 8 of the Advocare 24 day Challenge and LOVING the results so far.  I snuck a weigh-in on Day 7 and was down 4 lbs. I really wanted something to help me jumpstart my progress and this challenge is doing just that!  I have tons of energy and am still eating plenty to keep Smith and me happy :)  If you want to learn more about the Challenge you can follow me on Instagram  or email me at  

Smith is exactly a month old today (Holy cow that went quickly) so I felt comfortable adding in hand weights into my daily workouts.  I REALLY love slinging around heavy weights at the gym, but I will wait for my doctor's approval before I start that- ha!

Check out my SweatShop ha! We had just gotten back from our 2 1/2 mile walk and I felt like working out my shoulders.  I did not continue lifting weights throughout my pregnancy like I had intended to do so I am sticking to my 8s and 5s for now!

Remember when I said I am still eating a lot??? Ha! I really am!  I am paying intention to ingredients and tracking everything in My Fitness Pal. 

I also think I am getting a pretty good workout by baby wearing! Ha!  I still have two older children that need lots of attention too. 

And last but not least... I am taking progress pictures. I actually don't *love* this part right now, but I know I will be very thankful for the pictures soon!

And just because I don't want to leave you with a selfie of me (ha!)... here is a picture of Smith "meeting" the Atlantic Ocean for the first time!

I can't wait to read your entries!

  8. Five Nights at Freddy’s is a horror plus action filled game developed by Scott Cawthon. The storyline is that you’re hired and welcomed at your job at “Freddy Fazebar’s Pizza”. A fast food joint is a place adored by both kids and their parents who come here for entertainment. The place has fun and food written all over it.

    The selling point of this whole store is Freddy and his two friends. They’re robots who’ve been kept in order to entertain the customers. Although, from some days, certain suspicious activities have been noted and robots get doomed at, the night. Now, because you’re way cheaper for the repairman, you’re hired as a security guard. This means, that now it’s your turn to face the haunted nights and get through it. The game is an awesome blend of a good storyline and awesome graphics.
