Let’s just begin by saying that after yesterday’s strength sesh in the gym and 2 killer Pilate’s classes I got out of bed very gingerly this morning. Oh, the pain!!! You know its bad when it hurts to sit down….and get up! LOL! At least my kids were entertained by my hobbling about this morning!
-2/3 cup water
-1/3 cup Quaker oats
-peaches & blueberries
-International Delights French vanilla coffee “creamer”
This breakfast was 100% pain free!
I ploughed my way through a stack of paperwork at my desk this morning. I was happy to see the back end of it! There was no delicious food in the staff kitchen like yesterday so I broke around noon and ate a Clif Bar for a snack:
Regardless of my aching muscles, I went to the gym at lunch. Not sure if that was smart or not, but I just did cardio so I’m thinking no harm was done. First I did a 12.5min walk at 4mph with a 7% incline, then I ran for 12.5minutes at 6pmh with a 1% incline. Lastly, I hopped on the elliptical for 20 more heart pumping minutes. And I made sure to stretch really good at the end.

Later on in the day I ate a bowl of mixed fruit (cantaloupe, watermelon, pineapple, grapes and honeydew). I had been looking forward to this all day!
I swear there’s honeydew under there!! I’ve been buying the trays of pre cut fruit the past few weeks because I’m WAY more likely to eat it if it’s already been prepped for me. Obviously I need my very own sous chef! LOL!
Dinner came early once again as we all had to be out the door shortly after 5pm. DS had hockey practice and then right after it was to the church for his First Reconciliation. My hubby helped coach again and then stayed at the complex with DD for her swimming lesson. Tired yet??? HA! All I wanted was pancakes so I made a batch using a hungry girl recipe. I had no dairy so I used a tbsp of almond butter in place of the cottage cheese. To top them off I used PB2 and chopped hazelnuts. The pancakes also had blueberries folded in:
I’m glad I went ahead and made these because they were SO satisfying. I grabbed the last 2 vegan chocolate chip cookies for the road…
At hockey practice tonight all the boys had Canadian flags taped to their helmets. DS informed me they did that to show some Canadian pride! Love it. Here are a few shots he let me take!
I dragged him off the ice at 6 so he could change and head to the church. The rink and church are practically side by side which is why he got to go on the ice at all. The kids behaved well which can be tough at 8. They sang a few cute songs before meeting individually with the priest. I took a few picture’s but they’re fuzzy and he looks possessed! See for yourself…
LOL! He really does enjoy singing and it’s a pleasure to watch him. My hubby and DD aren’t home from the pool yet so DS and I are watching Aliens in the Attic again. It’s a pretty cute movie so I don’t mind. I’m feeling really wiped out so I think it’s gonna be an early bedtime for me. Here’s to hoping I’m not so stiff in the morning!
Bye for now!!
