Top of the delicious morning! We had our weekly terrible night’s sleep last night, but somehow I felt OK all day. I’m still in complete awe over how awake I feel during the daytime. We are nearly 3 months in to parenthood, and despite having a baby who most definitely does not sleep through the night (at least the parents’ version), I’m doing well. I must still be running on adrenaline. And oatmeal.
Sunflower overnight oats for breakfast. Just the typical OO recipe minus banana plus pumpkin. And some half caf coffee (because Matt was home!)
We played Man in the Mirror after breakfast. He cracks me up! He flirts with himself and does so much TALKING. I have a video in the works!
We headed to Pump Challenge a while later for a nice workout. I walked there and back with the stroller for cardio and as always, Chris’s 55 minutes of non-stop weights wore my muscles out. The class was PACKED. And all my friends were there!
Our friends Sylvia and Sarah came home with us for lunch! Maze gave her some big smiles : )
I made the moms salads with peppers, carrots and pecans and an olive oil/honey dressing
Maze was on the grumpy side today (we think he is teething already!) and we had to cancel our plans with my mothers group to take a nap. But I always welcome naps!
I made a cranberry sauce smoothie while he slept!
Inside: 1/3 cup cranberry sauce (the last) plus a cup of milk and half a banana. That’s it! It was awesome.
Coconut butter + cereal on top!
I have been neglecting my coconut butter all summer because it separated and then got hard. It just took 5 minutes in the hottest water my sink could produce to mix and melt it again. Must do more often!
Baby fun times!!!
Matt and I made tofu stir fry for dinner.
Thanks so much to my rice cooker for doing the hard part!! We cooked the Twin Oaks tofu in safflower oil plus broccoli and peppers and Matt made a soy sauce + apple cider vinegar + brown sugar + garlic reduction to go on top. Just combine a little of this and that and let it bubble over medium high heat until it’s nice and thick.
