Wednesday: Work, workout, what I ate

Good afternoon! Yesterday was another normal day in the neighborhood…a very rainy neighborhood.

My alarm went off at 5, I drove to work, and began work before 7 am.

Breakfast included oatmeal and a banana and my new obsession…hot tea!

My workout was an X-Fit class at my work gym and it was a killer. Lots of squats, high knees, burpees, push ups, and about 15 minutes of AB work.

Lunch was leftovers from Tuesday night’s dinner…chicken, peas, and sweet potato tots.

After a very rainy two hour commute home, I made a salad for dinner. Spinach was the base layer and I added peas, sweet potato tots, carrots, cheese, a veggie burger, and guacamole. I also snacked on some Wheat Thins. This flavor is amazing!

Annabelle and I snuggled/wrestled on the couch for a bit and watched Sesame Street before she went to bed. She is going into a little biting stage and her teeth are so sharp! Anybody else have a 21 month old who is doing this???

Once AB was down for the night, I enjoyed some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that I bought at a bake sale today.

I also booked a flight to visit these guys in December! I can’t wait!!

I hope you are having a great Thursday! It’s almost the weekend!

What time do you get up?

How long is your commute to work?

Any parents that can help me with the biting thing????

Snapshot Saturday :-)

I hope you all are having a great weekend so far! Here is how my weekend is going so far…food, running, and Annabelle. 🙂

Now, I’m drinking an iced latte and watching House Hunters…at 10:30 pm.

I could get used to this.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today is another snow day! Did I really shovel for 3 hours yesterday or was I dreaming?!?!?

A big thank you to our neighbor who came to the rescue with a snow blower. 🙂

I could really get used to being at home all day. It’s so fun to make breakfast and hang out with Annabelle (and Chris) all morning.

Blueberry multi-grain pancakes (Tip: add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon for a more flavorful pancake)

Annabelle did the cutest thing this morning. Right before Sesame Street started (I have no idea how she knew it was coming on), she sat in her chair and bounced around with excitement. Love her <3.

We ate breakfast pretty early, so I was ready for lunch before noon. I went with a classic pb and j with pop chips and a pear.

Once Annabelle went down for her nap and Chris was at the store, I sat down and relaxed with a good friend…Godiva.

I’m hoping to get to the gym and RUN later today. I need some endorphins in a bad way. 🙂

What are your plans tonight?

Do you like V Day or do you think it’s overrated?
