Last week was a week of checking tasks off the list. One step, then another. One box after another. Seeing the check marks kept me focused and brought a smile to my face.

Quote of the Week:

“I started calling my ‘to do’ list my ‘taa daa’ list. Now when I cross things off, I’m like, ‘taa daa!! Getting shit done!'” ~Unknown

Attitude of Gratitude:

Love my girl!! So grateful for her snuggles and unconditional love!!
So grateful for the post workout squeeze from my Normatec Recovery boots!!
When it storms, the babies want LOTS of snuggles and to be in the basement…I’m glad I get to comfort them!!
SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL to have Breakthrough Nutrition in my tribe!! With all of the heat + humidity lately, I’m excited to give the Preload a try!!
Grateful to get the opportunity to be the lead bike for the local 5K + 10K race to support Iowa Able!! My fave directed traffic at the finish area!!
Completed my American Council on Exercise Personal Training Recertification with 5 days to spare!! 🙂
A sweet reward for finishing my personal training recertification.

How was your week? What are you grateful for this week?! How do you feel when you check a task off your “taa daa” list?!

  1. Love the idea of a “taa daa list”! You accomplished a lot this week and got back to strength and core training-well done. I’m grateful that summer vacation is almost here!! The boys are done of school on Wednesday and I’m am leaving for my dreamy solo road trip on Friday (and the weather is looking a bit better). This week is going to drag, isn’t it? 😉

    1. I did get a lot done Amy! Feels good! 😉 I hope your week flies by! I’m so glad the weather is looking better for you! Once you get to your dreamy solo trip, I hope the time stalls out and drags its feet!! 😉
