The kids were definitely raring to go this morning. DD had been so excited to wear the outfit she picked that I’m shocked she didn’t try to sleep in it! :) I took a few pic’s of them before ewe left the house this morning. Warning----DS is wearing his grumpy face. He didn’t want a picture! :)
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup sunrise blend with quinoa
- almond butter
I’ve refrained from buying any recently because my hubby was starting to make a stink about all the room the bowls take up in the cupboard, but I had to have a red one! :D
Work went by quickly today. It’s not only pay week, but the first pay of the school year so there are a lot of adjustments to deal with. I pulled out my Clif Mojo bar about 11:45 to eat before I went to the gym at 12:30.
I really wasn’t keen on a run today and had planned some time on the elliptical, but it was in use. The hazards of a small gym, I guess. Thankfully that doesn’t happen very often. Anyways, I bucked up and ran at a slower pace with different inclines for a 1/2 hour before hitting up some strength moves. Here’s what I did;
- 3 sets x15 lunges on bosu with 7lbs weights
- 3 sets x 15 tricep dips
- 3 sets x 15 squats on the bosu
- 3 x 60sec planks
- Time: 50 minutes
- Avg Hr: 148
- Max Hr: 174
- Calories Burned: 407
- Distance: 2.61 miles
- baby spinach
- salmon fillet
- garden tomatoes
- fig balsamic dressing
This was a simple, yet delicious meal!
DS was on the ice at 5pm at a rink close by so I stopped there on my way home from work to watch for a bit. After a 1/2 hour DD and I were cold so we made our way home. The sun was shining hot so I took advantage of some free time to sit out on the deck with my book. The perfect way to unwind, in my opinion!
The boys wanted pizza for supper so I popped 2 frozen guys in the oven for them to enjoy. I decided to try out the Kashi Mayan Harvest Bake that I bought while in the States over the holiday’s. I’d heard good things about it so I was eager to give it a go.
So what did I think??? F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!! This was my first time trying plantain and it was SO good! I never realized that they were on the sweet side! I’d buy this again in a heartbeat.
After dinner DD and I took KC for an hour long walk. Great way to digest your dindin! :) Once I’m done here I’ll be preparing lunches and getting the kids settled into bed. Then, at 9pm, I will be putting my feet up to watch SYTYCD Canada. Ahhhh….
Bye for now!!
