1. Wal Mart Grocery Pickup
I've spent the past 3ish years telling Aaron that all I really want out of life is for the grocery store to pull together and bag my groceries so all I have to do is swing by, open the back hatch, load up and go home. No getting kids out of the car, no wiping down grocery carts, no scouring aisles. Just pick up and go!
WAL MART DOES THAT NOW.
This is totally non-sponsored (although, I'm open! Call me, Wal Mart!) but my friend posted about this newish service on Facebook a few weeks ago and it's been a total life changer. They don't have it at all locations (although I've heard they're slowly expanding) but my closest option is literally one mile from where my kids have swimming lessons so my life is basically amazing right now.
You hop on the website, pick out your groceries and tell them what day and time you'll be there. Then you go to the Wal Mart location, follow the signs to grocery pickup and call the number on the sign. They bring your groceries out and load them in your car for you. AND THAT'S IT. IT IS THE BEST THING EVER.
2. Kayla Itsines
Back in December I attended a favorite things party with 5 of my closest friends from my old neighborhood and one of the girls started telling us about Aussie Kayla Itsines' Bikini Body Guides. I was just getting to the point where I was ready to start working out again and my ears perked up big time.
I've got Bikini Body Guide 1.0 and I'm on my second attempt (I made it up through week 3 during a brief period of The Caboose sleeping slightly better. Then her sleep went to pot and I gave up). I'm in the midst of week 4 right now and I was (am?) planning on writing a dedicated post about this in a few months BUT swimsuit season is coming so I wanted to talk about it now in a semi-brief manner.
I FEEL SO GOOD. Like, I'm becoming one of those people who LOOKS FORWARD TO EXERCISING.
WHO AM I. WHAT IS LIFE.
I'm baaaarely starting to see results (they'd probably be a lot quicker in coming if I cleaned up my eating a bit more) but I feel amazing and I can tell I'm getting a lot stronger. When I started the guides I couldn't do a straight leg sit-up to save my life (see: recent pregnancy and c-section). Last night I was laying on the floor with The Caboose and I did one. Like it was nothing. I hadn't even realized I'd progressed that far.
It's a beast at first but it gets better!
