Fit After Little Bits

This and That

on August 28, 2018

Hi, Friends!! Anyone else having a mild panic attack about the Fall feel in the air?!

Don’t get me wrong, we are very much looking forward to some cooler weather and snow after this hot and dry summer…..but SO MUCH TO DO!!!!

I know it has been a little bit, but I have had a long to-do list and not enough hours (read: grading until the late night and waking up early to workout!).

Some highlights from the past couple of weeks….

I am pretty sure that our tomato plant really likes where it is at. This is from over a week ago and it is even larger now. Possible?! There are a ton of little tomatoes on there and they are finally starting to ripen. Brooke and I have had a few each and they are beyond delicious!! (So are the cucumbers, zucchini and carrots!).



I had a conference call for work. So lucky this little girl is so patient and just plays the whole time!


Still working on staining the house! We needed to replace some wood pieces and we FINALLY have all of those to work with! Big progress this weekend….really no choice…..#winteriscoming!

We finally had some rain over a few days. Everything sucked that water right up.

We got to celebrate Ken’s 35th birthday last week!! Dropped these off at work on Thursday šŸ˜‰


Brooke officially started (homeschool) Kindergarten last week and we are LOVING it!! So fun to spend a bunch of one-on-one time watching her learn. She would do math and science all day if she could!


We went out to Happy Hour last Thursday which was a real treat. We rarely go out to dinner for date night and of course we took the kid with us. Ha. Back to Mambo because that Peach Pizza….and $3 beers šŸ˜‰




Ken took the day off on Friday (his actual birthday). He got in a nice ride and then I set out on mine! The only problem is that I ran into thunderstorms and had to get rescued. Changed our afternoon paddle boarding plans šŸ˜¦

Saturday involved a nice long ride for Ken while Brooke and I headed to golf. Poor Jasper had a bad reaction to his shots earlier in the week and we ended up back at the vet. He is doing a bit better now. Only acting drunk occasionally.

Sunday I was able to get in a 30ish mile ride. It was gorgeous….minus the wind šŸ˜‰

Got a bunch of house projects in before Ken headed out to dirt bike with a friend.

Yesterday, Brooke and I got to take an unexpected trip to Kremmling. Turns out some of the wood that was ordered for us was not the correct measurements, so we went straight out to a mill to get it ourselves! Yes, those are 12 feet long. So long!


Other than that, life has been pretty much a steady state of school work, grading, projects, chores and workouts!

Pretty proud that I have actually been getting up with my 5:30 am alarm and getting my workouts done. Sure makes it easier to fit everything into the day….sure, I want to go to bed with Brooke at 8….but that’s when I start “working”.

Another fun fact: We are legit throwing a Gravel Bike race next August. Sponsors are becoming a real thing. It’s looking big. Almost time to take over that website and start up the social media! Always ready for another project!!

Hope you are enjoying the rest of summer! Fall is right around the corner up here!
