Happy Thursday, everyone! Hope the week is going well for you all so far. Things are going pretty super over here. This morning, we started off with some play time on the piano mat, followed by some tummy time. Tummy time is not Lucas’s favorite – I can only get him to give me about five minutes before he’s had enough – but we still do it everyday.
He’s been such a happy guy this week, and is starting to sleep even better for us at night. We started putting him to bed around 8pm and he’ll sleep until about 7am with one wake up to eat usually in the 3am hour. I’m hoping he continues this way (and eventually drops the night feed!), as it would be wonderful for when I go back to work in a couple of weeks.
But we don’t talk about that just yet. Instead, I’d rather just focus all of my attention on this little face, which seems to change and grow by the hour.
Along with that head of hair! Remember when he lost it all and was a little baldy?
And a little string bean? My goodness!
Alright, sorry. Enough of blasting you all with photos of Lucas.
Yesterday included some pretty delicious meals, which I managed to snag some pictures of, so I figured I’d share with ya’ll. Breakfast started things off, which consisted of my coffee (duh) and a bowl of frosted shredded wheat with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and banana slices.
Shortly after breakfast and putting Lucas down for his morning nap, I headed down to the treadmill and completed another 3 miles (similar to this workout) plus some abs from my Best Body Bootcamp plan.
Ya know? I was thinking about this earlier today…I have no idea HOW I’m going to fit in exercise once I’m back to work. Sure, weekends will be fine, but during the week? I just don’t know?
Early morning workouts would be a little tough, since umm, the “girls” probably wouldn’t appreciate too much movement at that point. Then once I get home, I know I’d much rather spend time with my guy than be on a treadmill or something. Soooo, I don’t know. I guess it will take a little experimenting to see what works best. If anyone has any tips/thoughts, I’d love to hear ‘em!
But getting back to yesterday again…lunch was a yummy one.
I made a turkey and provolone sandwich with spinach, tomato, and honey mustard on a whole wheat sandwich thin, with some carrots, tomatoes, and hummus on the side.
I then proceeded to eat about three handfuls of candy corn while playing with Lucas in his swing but umm, yeah. Whoops.
Dinner was thrown together quickly, but turned out rather awesome for being on the fly.
We both still had a piece of leftover pizza from date night, so we heated those up and had ‘em with a couple of big grilled chicken salads (we buy frozen chicken breasts from Sam’s Club and keep them in the freezer for nights like this). Yum, yum, yum.
Now I’m gonna attempt to squeeze in a circuit workout before little man wakes up. Fingers crossed he stays down long enough!
Catch ya later, gators.
