I did it.
I created one of the most wonderful bowls of oatmeal. Ever.
And it’s all thanks to a generous dollop of my leftover Pumpkin Mousse with Pecan Streusel Topping!! You guys convinced me…I guess I really wasn’t crazy!
I brought my oats to work with me (a base of oats, skim milk, 1/2 mashed banana, 1 tbsp pumpkin butter, and some raisins) nuked ‘em in the microwave, then topped ‘em off with the goods.
These put me in a good mood. No doubt about it.
Lunch was a “Monday Usual” so I didn’t bother with any photos. We all know what they look like…
After work, I headed to the gym for a BodyPump class. Before class started, I hopped on a treadmill and completed a quick mile of walk/run intervals. Nothing crazy, but enough to get my heart rate pumpin’! (<—I definitely just wrote “pumpkin” there…obsessed much? I wouldn’t doubt it) Today’s BodyPump class was no joke! You definitely know you had a good class when you can’t fix your own ponytail without your arms shaking uncontrollably. Yikes! I’m thinking it’s partially due to the fact that I decided to up my weights on the chest track. Either way, today’s class felt awesome!
Jay was originally planning on making dinner for us, but plans fell through (0-2 these past 2 days!) so he did the next best thing we know how…order out!
While I was on my way home from the gym, Jay picked us up some of our favorite salads from a local pizza place, LaBella’s. I ordered their Chef Salad with every vegetable they had, minus olives. Olives are one of the few remaining foods that I just cannot stomach. Bleh!
One of my favorite parts of these salads is the amazing bread that comes with them. You may remember last week when Jay attempted to re-create these little gems? His were good…but these were fantastic. I ended up eating 4 out of 6 of the pieces.
Hubby also suggested pairing tonight’s dinner with a glass of wine…
Ummmm, ok, twist my arm!
So we both enjoyed our salads and wine while sitting on the couch watching some Wheel of Fortune.
It was so nice to just sit and spend time with my boys! I felt like I was “part of their group.” Just look at all I’ve been missing out on:
I don’t know how he’s even comfy?!?
“Dad, seriously. Let me go back to looking extremely uncomfortable. Please?”
I love these guys!
Time to go get some baking done for a Baby Shower I have tomorrow after work for one of my co-workers! Then it’s time for some Modern Family + Cougar Town.
Question for the Night:
What foods can you just not stomach? Do you consider yourself a “picky eater?”
