Hello pals! How are you? I hope you had an exquisite Valentine’s Day, whether or not you had been celebrating along with your love, your Galentines, your kiddos, or your pet 🙂 For as we speak’s submit, I believed I’d share an old-school day of eats and adventures just like the weblog days of yore. Please remember that What I Ate Wednesday posts are simply to share some new concepts and I completely perceive why they can be problematic or not a match for sure pals on the market. If it’s not your cup of tea, no worries in any respect, and I’ll see ya tomorrow with a brand new podcast episode!
Within the meantime, join Spring Shape Up here and begin testing the platform! We have now over 200 pals signed up up to now and I can’t wait to do that with all of you.
The women awoke early and had their Valentine’s baskets ready for them.
(Sweet, beanie boos, a cute coronary heart sweater, a e book, some tub bombs and lip gloss. They had been pumped!)
When the women had been a lot youthful and I noticed reward baskets for each.single.vacation, it made me really feel confused. I used to be simply attempting to maintain them alive, clear, fed, and comfortable, so issues like Halloween baskets or Valentine’s baskets appeared unfathomable to place collectively. As an alternative, I simply tried to do different issues to have fun, like hearts on their door with issues that I like about them. I nonetheless do that one as we speak and the women adore it – they maintain the hearts up all yr.
Now that they’re a bit older and may, you understand, costume themselves, bathe themselves, and many others., it’s a lot simpler to do enjoyable little further issues once I really feel prefer it.
I chugged some AG1 earlier than heading out the door and ate a few eggs with sriracha and EBTB seasoning.
(Confession: I’ve solely tried AG1 a few instances previously and didn’t just like the style. The model requested me if I needed some to check out, so I figured I’d give it an actual try to presumably share with household and pals. Seems: I find it irresistible. I even began craving the style within the morning after consuming it persistently. I like the entire vitamins and I really feel nice after a few weeks of consuming it every morning on an empty abdomen. They provided a reduction code to share, so I’ll submit it as quickly as I’ve it!)
I dropped the women off in school with their Valentine’s containers and goodies for his or her pals, and went straight to the Pilot’s squadron.
On the way in which, I picked up just a few dozen Valentines donuts to go away on the bar for everybody to take pleasure in, together with playing cards and roses for his or her family members.
After I dropped off the nice, I headed someplace I by no means go anymore: the bottom health club!
I LOVE understanding on base. They’ve every part I might ever need, the entire enjoyable purposeful gear, and the vibe all the time challenges me to work exhausting. The bummer is that it’s a strong half-hour from our home (40 in visitors), so it’s not real looking to go in the course of the week. Since I used to be already on base, I figured it was the right time for a exercise area journey and obtained in an superior complete physique exercise.
Breakfast was ready for me within the automobile:
1/2 cup oats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
It set within the fridge in a single day so the oats had been delicate, and it was the right post-workout gas.
I headed straight house to get to work for a few hours (answered emails, recorded a podcast episode, and designed the exercises for subsequent month’s Match Workforce) after which took Maisey on a stroll.
Lunch was leftover Tremendous Bowl chili, a chunk of sourdough with butter, and a easy chopped salad with Poshi asparagus and Primal Kitchen dressing.
I obtained again to work (studied IHP, 1 1:1 shopper name, labored on my Friday Faves weblog submit, despatched some invoices), took a meditation/prayer break on my Go Mat (10 minutes)
after which had a lil afternoon deal with:
a decaf espresso with almond milk, collagen, and a See’s coronary heart truffle.
Rapidly, I blitzed by means of the home (ran a loud of laundry, wiped counter tops, vacuumed, and switched out the dishes) and headed to a gathering at church. After the assembly, I picked up the crew, who had tons of valentines and goodies from college!
We headed house the place they’d after-school snacks, and we dropped Liv at dance with extra Valentines to trade. P and I labored on her homework at house and obtained prepared for a bit household date evening at Fleming’s.
Fleming’s is without doubt one of the eating places in Tucson that’s persistently very superb. All of us love their meals, so I figured it might be the right Valentine’s dinner.
My lil Valentines:
As all the time, every part was unimaginable.
We began with the salad (the Pilot and I cut up one), a shrimp cocktail, and P had the cheese plate from the children’ menu. Liv and the Pilot additionally obtained cups of lobster bisque – I attempted a style and it was aaaaamazing. For our entrees, all of us obtained filets, and shared asparagus, onion rings, and Fleming’s potatoes (cheese and evenly spicy). The Pilot stopped consuming desserts again in October so I shared this chocolate lava cake with Liv (P had ice cream and whipped cream). I had some sauvignon blanc and a Valentine’s cocktail that had gin, strawberry and lemon.
After we obtained house, I’d like to say I crashed into mattress in a wine and steak induced slumber, however…not fairly. I folded and put away a load of laundry, set out the women’ garments for Wednesday, the Pilot completed homework with the women whereas I packed lunches,
and stayed up too late studying. 😉
I crashed out round 11 and was able to blitz once more this morning.
How was your Valentine’s Day? What was the BEST factor you ate yesterday? Any superior exercises?
