    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #17

    I’ve been documenting my year one week at a time on the blog! It’s just a way to remember and reflect. Also a great way for my lovely readers/followers to catch up on what’s been happening in my life. Here is the 17th week of 2019 (yes I am very far behind)! 23 April – Tuesday I was stoked that the Little Miss slept from 10:30pm to 4:30am straight last night. Yep – that’s the best she’s done in a while! She seemed in better spirits today as a result, which was so good to see! My gut was not perfect yet so I skipped the gym, but it was…

    5 shows I’ve binge watched #4

    I don’t know about you guys, but I am always thinking about what I am going to watch next on TV or on a streaming app. I mean, I do think about other things, but this is my lovely relaxation moment, you know? My favourite part of the evening is when the kids are in bed and I can snuggle up with Mr Unprepared and watch something in the quiet together. I know. Wild, right? I love so much that in 2019 we can CHOOSE what we want to watch at any given time. Remember the days when we had to try our luck with what was on like 5…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #15

    This week (9-15 April) has been a bit difficult to write about for the blog. Some big, emotional things were going on at the time and there were lots of stories that were/are not mine to tell. While I wrote a lot in my personal journal at this time, I have obviously had to leave some things out, publicly. Just know that during this week, I really learned a lot about myself and life in general too. It was hard but it was a time that brought people together. 9 April – Tuesday I was supposed to go to the gym today, but the Little Miss had a really rough…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #14

    The 14th week of 2019 was full of anxiety, but also ended up being surprisingly productive. Also, there was that time on the Monday when the Little Mister randomly spewed and I actually saw it as a blessing in disguise… Anyway, we’ll get to that bit! 2 April – Tuesday I was starting to get anxious about starting at the gym this coming Thursday. I know it sounds silly but I feel like I have an insurmountable list of tasks to tick off before I can even get started. I messaged my friends S and A to ask questions (silly ones to regular gym goers I am sure) and they…

    Happy List #54

    Oh hey! I haven’t done one of these in a long time, but I’m feeling the need to focus on some positive stuff after a chaotic couple of weeks! The whole gratitude/positivity thing is not for everyone (for some it feels forced or whatever), but it often helps bring me back to a good head space when I’ve been feeling anxious or angry or just out of sorts. At the end of most days, we practice ‘3 things’ with the Little Mister. We will tell him three things that made us happy during the day and he will tell us his. It’s my not so stealthy way of trying to…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #13

    OK, so I have fallen way behind in my weekly chatty life updates. I am still only up to the end of March, you guys. I think sometimes I put off writing these posts because some weeks are better than others and some are a little hard to relive. I also know these posts are probably not always exciting. Just gonna own that and be OK with it. That’s life! But the thing is, it’s a record for me to keep and sometimes it inspires me to write other content too! Also, I know that I have to write what I would read, if that makes sense. It’s probably not…

    Before I forget: 5 useful things for people with babies.

    OK, so time is moving faaaaaaast right now. How can the Little Miss be 15 months old – a toddler with attitude – already? I am trying (through the sleepless nights and the teething and the weird fussy food moments) to soak up every moment of her little-ness. I don’t want to forget! She’s the precious completion of our family so I don’t want time to get away from me and then I’m suddenly a mother of teenagers and I’m like WTF JUST HAPPENED? I mean, I know that will still actually happen, but I want to remember the ‘little’ moments well. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’ve…

    Kez’s Anxiety vs. Gym

    Hi, I’m Kez and I get weird whenever I’m about to try something I’ve never done before. Like freaking out about where I will park when I drive somewhere I’ve never been or turning up somewhere like 6 hours too early because being early feels like the only thing I can control about a new situation. Well, this week I finally joined a gym. And let me tell you, it was an ordeal for me. At first I was all fired up about it and ready to jump into it with gusto. I had tried one too many times to do a home work out, with my son nagging me…

    How I feel about my body after having two babies.

    There’s nothing I love more than a good Chrissy Teigen tweet. If you’re not familiar, where have you been?? Kidding. If you aren’t familiar with her, she’s a hilarious multi talented woman (and mother of two) who just happens to be married to singer John Legend. She’s massive on Twitter, you guys. This morning I woke up to find reason #21937 to love her. the thinnest I’ve ever been was right after Luna. Postpartum depression. I’LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING! ā€” christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 30, 2019 Luna is her first child and Miles is her second (a little baby John Legend clone). Chrissy was first known to…

    2019: Week 5.

    This week was a pretty busy one! I was well aware it was the last week of the school holidays and I had so much to tick off! Here’s my wrap up of week 5 of 2019 (which includes the end of the longest month of the year and the Little Mister’s first day of year 2)… January 29 – Tuesday This day was a terrible day on paper. The Little Miss had just had a really rough night and had to have her immunisations (right on her morning nap time too)! When we got to the clinic there was a 20 minute wait (at least) and she was restless…
