Whew! I’ve been attacking my to-do list all morning – the physical components. I still have tons left to do in the mental section, including a 30-day school lunch menu that’s going to take me a long time today.
We got up with the sunrise, but that doesn’t mean it was early – the sun was still not up at 7:30! It was rush, rush, rush to get to the gym so we could be back in time for the husband to leave for EF at 9:30. We biked there and back despite the cold because the sun was up and that made it seem warmer. I think one of my ears fell off though…. At the gym I did 30 minutes on the Stairs and then turned around and biked straight home (the husband had left 5 minutes before me) so I could see him off to work.
Once he was gone I did my pilates-yoga DVD (Ellen Barret’s) since I missed lifting at the gym. It was quick (about 20 minutes) and pretty easy, yet I still feel like I got in a pretty good strength training session.
Then I tackled the household chores = cleaned all the floors and the upstairs bathrooms top to bottom.
After showering and dressing, it was 11:00! Surpringly I wasn’t that hungry. Hungry, yes, but starving, not too much. So I set out to have a simple box of “mess,” which I was craving. But my simple bowl turned into a HUGE bowl when I just kept adding things!
- A container of Chobani vanilla
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- Pumpkin pie spice
- A tiny little apple, chopped and microwaved
- About 3/4 a cup of Kashi Vive
- Spoonful pumpkin butter
- BIG spoonful peanut butter
- Tbsp ground flax
It was SO DELICIOUS!!
I also had a big beautiful cup of coffee –
Not sure what time I’ll eat lunch, but it’s going to be a late one.
I’m off to work on my list – it needs me ASAP!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
