Working Momma / Pro Compression

I got a JOB!

So I got a full time job at one of our friends shop.  Press operating/stamping type job, Nothing at all like my previous customer service jobs or banking!  Standing on my feet all day with loud machines, gloves, ear plugs and safety glasses! Whoa I'm a hard working woman who comes home looking Dirty!

ooohhh, if the guys knew that I was taking a typical teen girl pic of myself in the bathroom id be getting so much crap from them! (I don't think any of them even know I have a blog, shhhhhh!)



 I finally have a use for all those race t-shirts I have (that really are not so attractive to wear out anywhere)

Down side?
 
OK, its been 4 years now since I had a job, so that mean 4 year of pampered feet without long hours on them (besides running which never took 9 hours) which basically my feet KILL this week!

I'm not Blonde but sure had a blonde moment..HELLO,
 Pro Compression!


 Why I went this whole week with my feet killing and never thought to wear my Pro Compression sock, beats me! Can't wait until next week to start wearing them!


The benefit of wearing compression socks over 26.2 miles, 18 holes or 8 hours at work is the delay of muscular breakdown that comes from spending hours on your feet. PRO Compression works against gravity by helping your vascular system increase blood flow which relieves discomfort and assists in recovery. The minute you put them on, you’ll understand why PRO Compression socks are the World’s Best Athletic Performance Socks! 

If you work long hours you should try some compression socks, and nothing is better than getting a deal while your at it!!

What perfect timing to have a...

Another Down side of killing feet....I haven't been able to run this week :( or do my squat challenge :(  

 Although this is prolly great for me and keeping active on my feet and walking around the shop..not like being lazy around the house I'm sure I'm burning calories, but I can't wait to just be used to this whole standing of feet thing and get back to a working/Running mom!



 Give ya a sneak peak of a part,



 

Does this not look like a martini glass?! LOL

SQUATS:
I have been doing the squat challenge and am on day 16 or 17, don't have the paper next to me LOL.
These little challenges are always fun and everyone is doing them (or so I see people starting them and I haven't heard of results yet though or If they finished) So I gave it a  try!
 
But what I do know is I never thought I could do 120 and Bigolly I DID!
 
Have you done any 30 day challenges, and how were the results?!  
 
 
 
Now today I'm off to boot camp, than its her Birthday party at the splash pad!

Why Hello!

Well hello everyone! I have been missing for sometime now..AHH sorry sorry!

What have I been up to?
O you know normal run around like a crazy mom, wedding stuff for the best friend, job searching and cookin up some more tasty treats!

Wedding is over Check out the love birds!
 and also my beautiful lil flower girl!  who daddy forgot to bring her glasses...Whoops!

Speaking of glasses, lil love was told if she doesn't wear her glasses more she will need surgery to fix her lazy eye. Fast forward a month later, she wore them everyday and improved by over half to where we need to be! Yay for her, and we continue wearing and now patching to speed things up and hoping to be glasses free soon!
 
Super nice weather were staying busy for sure! Zoo trip kite flying making the laziest dog ever run!


BBQ's, crazy pinterest workouts and Oh so yummy food and treats to make! Here's a few for ya!
