Time Out!

Kara got her first time out at Daycare last week! She pulled a kids hair in the morning and then did it again in the afternoon. Ana said “NO, Kara!” And Kara started crying. She doesn’t like the word no, haha. So Ana said, “OK, Kara, let’s go to timeout.” And she sat on a little bench. I think it’s hilarious that a one year old is in time out, but it’s never too early to set the ground rules, right? (Random picture of Kara and Nana this weekend :))


I’m taking a little time out from running right now. After two very successful marathons post baby (10 months:Towpath & 13 months:Disney), I think my body needs a break. I’m still going to keep active, just much less intense! Ellipticalling

I’m also taking a time out from sugar… well, not completely 😉 but all the crap at work. That’s what really gets me. I have one piece or bite of something and it ALWAYS leaves me wanting more. And trust me, there is always more around! I HAVE to start being better about saying no. Healthier sweet options will be my treat for now. At home. In a controlled environment, haha. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Halo Top was pretty darn good! But the Mint Chip is still my fave.

Can we just say that the manufacturers of Vanilla need to get a time out… Have you seen the price of vanilla extract lately?! I found it for $25 at BJ’s, but even Wal-Mart’s prices are high. I just can’t justify paying that much… but I use it in my oatmeal every day. UUGGGHHH.Vanilla Extract

We took a little time out from our morning walk on the weekend to play at our community park. Kara loved swinging, sliding, and climbing, but she loved walking from one area to the next carrying the wood chips the most. Silly girl! I just love this stage of her life. She is so much fun <3

Wish me luck on the no (less) sugar thing, haha. What do you need a time out from? Hope everyone has a great week! I’m linking up with Katie for MIMM and the Weekly Wrap!

    • PB is my second fave!!! The freakin PB swirl/chunks are sooo good! Stores down here haven’t gotten the oatmeal cookie yet. I’m dying to try that and the pistachio!

      • I didn’t know there was a pistachio! My whole foods carries all tge flavors except the cheery one and now I know the pistachio too!

        • Lucky! If you find the pistachio let me know how it is… I’ve heard mixed reviews, but I’m hoping it’s awesome bc I love pistachio ice cream!

  1. We’ve just started implementing time outs with our twins. It is not going well. They now ask FOR time outs. Clearly we need a new discipline that’s less fun! I like Halo Top but I don’t think I could ever give up sugar. It keeps me moving. Sad but true!

    • That’s hilarious about the time outs, haha. I don’t want to give it up, just limit it more… I was eating WAY too many cookies and treats at work!

  2. Oh snap!! Don’t mess with Kara kiddos of the world! She won’t put up with it. 😉 Taking a mini break or cutting back on sugar always makes me feel better, despite the struggles to avoid at times. LOLL.

    • Ya, Kara’s going to be a “my way or the highway” kind of kid I think… we are in for it! Such a love hate relationship with sugar.

  3. Kara is the cutest! I hear stories of kids putting themselves in time out. Maybe Kara will do that? LOL. I am giving my body a Time Out as well after two marathons in 3 months. I can’t find Halo Top locally and I want to try it so badly. I need to remember the next time I’m traveling to stop in a grocery store. Maybe I’ll get lucky. Thanks for linking, Heather!

    • I could see Kara putting herself in a time out. She’s so funny… she back ups up to the bottom stair and sits down like she “has to do” at Ana’s. I hope you can find Halo soon!

  4. That is so funny that Kara got a time out!!
    I haven’t tried the Halo Top yet but I am also watching my sugar intake! Sucks huh?! 😉 I actually feel really good and my work outs have been great so maybe its for the better!!
    Have you looked at Costco for the vanilla?!

    • I can’t totally cut sugar, I mean, I’m sure I could if I HAD to, but yolo, haha. I haven’t looked at Costco- don’t have a membership there, but I’m sure I know someone who does and can hook me up if it’s cheaper 🙂

  5. LOL…little Kara in timeout! Too funny! Those playground pictures are adorable! She is going to get even more fun now that you can do things like that!!! I don’t think I’ve had the HaloTop cookie dough!!!

  6. THIS GIRL loves herself mint chocolate chip…. 😉 Although cookie dough – it’s UP THERE. Haven’t had THAT in ages!!! Shit son. And um. I remember when I was a kiddo… And I would get in trouble. Oh man, I was soooo scared. But hot sauce, I got a lot of detentions – LOL!! My potty mouth man 😉
