How to Stay on Track with your Workouts this Summer

How to Stay on Track with your Workouts this Summer

Summer workouts are always the hardest for me. In the summer I have this innate need to sleep late, even though I know I can’t. I have this urge to just want to lay under the warm summer sun and relax all day, even though I know I can’t. And I have the need to devour ice cream all day long, even though I know I can’t. It’s the summer – what can I say!?

I’ve been trying my very best to stay on track with my summer workouts, but it’s been a little difficult

Happy 70th Birthday to my Dad!!

Happy 70th Birthday to my Dad!!

I’ve often said that I hit the jackpot with my father. I’m not kidding, I literally hit the jackpot of jackpots with my dad. He’s just the best there is and I feel blessed every single day. He’s just one of those guys that gives and gives and gives and asks for nothing in return. That’s just him. He’s a giver.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people my father has touched in his lifetime. This is a guy who is still best friends with buddies he had in middle and high school

I met my husband when I was 19 years old. I was a sophomore at Brown University and he was a (gorgeous) senior. I remember thinking, “I hope he hasn’t graduated yet!” When we first met because I really (really) wanted to get to know him. He was so funny. He was so sweet. And (ahem) he was handsome as can be. What can I say, he kinda had me at HELLO. It’s funny – whenever I tell people that Matt and I are celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary on June 30th, they always

FAMILY HAIRCUT TIME FOR THE BOYS [5 Guy Assembly Line]

Family Haircut Time

Family Haircut Time!

It’s not easy wrangling 5 guys to the hairdresser. OK, let me put it this way – it’s impossible. Whenever it’s time for them to get a haircut or at least a “clean-up,” I always hear grunting. None of my sons like to get their haircut, even my husband!

Honestly – this is usually what I get:

“I don’t need a haircut.” *Yet the hair is beyond their ears “I’ll get it next week.” *We never do. “Do you know how long it will take?&#8221

Camp Mom: Things To Do with Toddlers in the Summer

Victoria is officially out of preschool. She got out on Friday, which means it’s just the 2 of us till her brothers get out on June 21st. I had the option to put her in preschool camp for the next 3 weeks, but I figure it would be nice for her to get some mom time alone… not only with me, but with my mom, too! It’s going to be all hands on deck till summer officially/officially kicks off for the McClelland family!

Since I work from home, it’s not going to be the easiest

Marriage Monday: Talking Taboo Subject of Dad Weight Loss

Not many dads talk about it, but it’s something that happens and it’s important to keep it real. It’s funny – whenever I’m with my girlfriends the subject of weight loss comes up. We talk classes we’re taking, food we’re trying, races we’re signed up for, you name it… we’re talking about it and how to keep ourselves in shape! And in all honesty… we share a ton online, too! Just do a quick search of my own blog and you’ll
