Damn Fine.


Let's just make this a random post about all the things? First up - Kylie's Lip Kit. Getting it ordered is a hassle cause you gotta be by your computer refreshing like a boss to even hopefully buy one. The shipping was 9 bucks making one kit almost $40, but it did ship pretty quickly. I'm not a fan of the colors she offers, lots of neutrals and browns, even black and a blue. I lean towards pinks and the closest she had was Posie K - as you can see from the picture it's a bit mauve -ish - more of a Fall color for me. It's a good lasting color - not all day, but several hours. I'd give it a B-


Sweet baby Aiden is now officially Toddler Aiden. He's showing his stubborn side, favorite word is 'NO!!' and basically making me sweat anytime we leave the house. It's cool - I got you dude. It's all a phase and I'm still rubbing his baldish head and kissing that sweet baby like tummy. 


His new love is a water gun, not a huge fan of swimming just yet so he likes to squirt everyone and everything with these guns. Madison is turning into a fish, every day wanting to live in her swimsuit. She's being kept busy everyday with summer camp, soccer, and tutoring. One day I didn't take her to camp and within 30 minutes she was sitting at the top of the stairs complaining about being bored, she's not one who's able to just relax around the house. 


We spent the weekend at indoor soccer games, birthday parties, and Father's Day food and fun. I love adult parties that I can bring the kids to, I  enjoy adult time but the weekends is where we can all do things together - during the week Oliver works late so it tends to be just me and the kids. 


Oliver is really trying hard to stick to his macros, on the weekend he's chowing down on chicken saving his carbs for beer. The problem comes AFTER the beers, but honestly I'm super proud of him! The weekends are hard for everyone and he's putting in solid daily effort and is looking damn fine. 


I'm getting beat up at Crossift - I just can't be on board with this ripped hand life. At all. I'm going to continue to order gloves and grips until I find something I can use! I ordered the Natural Grip, but my hands ripped all around the grip part, this isn't even the worst of it. I'll let you know if I find something good!


And then I missed the box on box jumps - I was on 95 out of 100 so I guess the bright side is that I only had 5 left. My shins hurt like I was giving birth!! Terrible pain and now they look even worse, perfect for shorts and dress season. 

But, still loving it. Hard.

  3. Do you shave down your calluses? I bought one of these and shave them down once - twice a week, after the shower! I xfit 6 times a week and I have not torn since doing this!!!

  4. chick - try arnica for your bruises. You can get it in any whole foods type of store and even pharmacies sell it. It's a clear gel and makes bruises go away! I used to buy it all the time for when my kiddos always seemed to bump their heads right before family photos..lol.

    Terrible Twos are a myth. It's threenagers you gotta look out for...

  6. damn box jumps. I got my shin once really good, like bleeding through the whole WOD and ever since then I have been a little baby about box jumps. I do them, but I have a hard time trying to go faster or higher. And the glove thing is hard. If you find something that works let us know because I haven't found the right ones yet either. Glad you are enjoying it. Once I pop this baby out I am heading back to the box (well once I am released to exercise), I miss it!!!

  7. Try colourpop.com - it's the exact same company that manufactures the lip kit but they are $6 each and have tons of colors!

  15. It's easy, you go to kyliecosmetics.com and place an order.

    For real though. If your opinions make it so that you choose to not buy from certain places, that's cool. But why judge others who don't share your opinion?
