Keeping it Light...

Hi everyone! I'm on a brief visit back home, and enjoying some time with my hubby (and Bethany and Sadie, lol). I drove back home Tuesday, and I'll go back to CA Sunday. Monday starts another countdown on the stuff we've been doing/going through. Hoping to be back home for a good chunk of time after about two more weeks.

The stuff we're doing (which I can't yet share) is going well. Really well this round. I'm so incredibly proud of the kids, and how they're handling all the stress and the required lifestyle changes to get the best shot at this. Their strength and maturity while carrying this is amazing, and their ability to find fun in and around their situation is incredible.

This last trip out, we did the usual cooking/prepping, all the doctor and various assorted appointments, took a trip out to Seaport Village - in the rain. Lol. Been awhile since I've been in a real San Diego soaker, and boy were we soaked!!


I also got a guest membership at the local gym there. I'm slowly starting to get myself back into my routine - at home and on the road. I miss my Kayla time, but I know I have to get my own discipline back in play. My clothes all still fit (except 1 pair of jeans, lol), but I'm too soft for my own liking. And my joints... ugh. So, time to get back at it. However, I forgot about the HUMIDITY. I was sweating before I even stepped on the stairmaster, lol. Afterwards, I was able to literally wring out my hair. Gross.

Shi and I hit up the Lorna Jane store near her (I had brought nothing to go to the gym in), so I was able to pick up a top, bra and capris - I've been wanting to try out that line of workout wear so this was a good opportunity. Also had to pick up some shoes, lol, they frown on barefoot cardio at the gym. Shi picked out the kicks, she said they looked happy - happy is good. Lol.

Love, love LOVE this workout top!
Super breathable, comfy, and cute!
I'm a little drippy. Car needs a
new air freshener.    
Just wrung out my hair. Ewwww!!!!
So the word on the Lorna Jane gear? I loved the top! This is my new favorite workout shirt!! The capris lived up to their reputation (dry fast), and that was nice - they're supportive, flattering, and comfortable. The bra - not impressed. It was a "maximum support" - but just felt.... meh. Not worth the (high) price tag, in my opinion.  I should have tried on more bras before purchasing that one, but ran out of time. They have another pair of capris that I really, really want - these (click the link, aren't those awesome???).  And a ton of tops with amazing messages. I love that store! ;-)

There's my two cents on Lorna Jane. ;-) What's your favorite workout wear? Is it a "brand"? A style?

Anyway, after my gym time, Bear and I hung out together and watched some Parenthood (season 6) together while Shi and Jared took in a ballgame. We shared some popcorn ;-)
I spent the rest of that evening doing some work, then playing my favorite distraction... Game of War. The hubby was playing, too, so it was almost like being with him. Almost.

The next few days I'll be prepping this house for my next departure - making sure there's GOOD food in the fridge, doing laundry, etc. Sunday will be here before I know it. We got Bethany all registered for her next semester of college, and we'll order her textbooks today (we rent through Amazon).  Another YAY moment around here - she got a job at a local preschool! Great experience for the budding kindergarten teacher :-)

Another task to do - I have to decide what clean-eats to pack up in my trusty cooler for the next trip... usually it's turkey rollups, almonds, cheese, chicken... plus my water and Xyience. Just stuff I can eat and drink without making a mess while I'm driving. ;-)

If you're interested in a list of travel friendly foods, check out the Travel Food Recommendations sheet on the website. :-) There's also a Vegetarian version.

I'm planning to update the Workout Playlist page soon, too, so keep an eye out for that. And if you have any tune recommendations, shoot them my way - I'm always on the lookout for fresh music! :-)

Ok, I'm off... laundry calls, lol. Happy Thursday!!!
