Because I guess that really is what this blog is about, right?
I don’t tend to blog too often anymore about my day to day, but every once in a while, it’s nice to just check in with a random, casual, “here’s what’s up” type of post. I ended up having some pics that I took from yesterday, and figured it’d be fun to share a little bit of everything.
Due to some last minute circumstances, I ended up having to work from home on Monday. Not that I mind at all – it gives me some extra time with Lucas, and it also allowed me to put together a lunch that I probably wouldn’t have, had I packed something up to bring to work.
I was able to eat a mash up of a lunch, including some leftover chicken nuggets, a hardboiled egg, some avocado, cucumbers, and tomatoes (some eaten before the photo was taken). This meal took about .2 seconds to put together but, man, it was delicious. I’m sure the added Vitamin D in the form of sunshine probably had something to do with it.
Cody has been Snuggle McSnuggleson lately, and we’re actually wondering if he hasn’t quite been feeling well.
Although he’s been acting fine around us, we’ve noticed that he’s actually been throwing up a bit in our basement. Poor guy…we’re keeping an eye on him and, if it continues, we’ll likely have a vet visit to schedule. I’m calling “not it” on taking him this time, though!
Workouts have been great lately. I haven’t really blogged much about them, just because they’ve been fairly consistent with what I’ve been doing, but I’m feeling good and still averaging about 5 workouts per week. The past couple of weeks, it’s mainly been a mix of T25, Insanity Max: 30, and PiYo…yesterday was some T25 upper focus!
In the past year, Beachbody workouts have seriously changed my workouts in a totally amazing way. Since I haven’t had a gym membership in over two years, and have been crunched for time, I’ve needed something that is quick and efficient AND can be done from home. I’ll continue to shout from the rooftops just how much I love these workouts!
I packed myself a few lunch salads on Sunday and while it’s been great, I forgot to add the avocado AND pack salad dressing yesterday, making for one…disappointing salad.
Okay, I guess I’m actually stretching that one a bit. It wasn’t that bad…but for those of you who actually enjoy eating salads sans dressing, I don’t know how you do it.
Of course, I managed to get not only my breakfast smoothie on it, but even some juice from Lucas’s raspberries. Go figure…and thank goodness for Tide sticks. Everything came out no problem-o.
Somebody was in a bit of a “mood” yesterday after getting picked up from daycare. Pair that with a mama who was already feeling a bit stressed, and that called for some pre-dinner wine.
Two glasses later and mama felt muuuuuuch better.
I know I typically wait to share most of my dinners with you guys until meal plan Sundays these days, but I just had to include this one.
Jay and I had a Blue Apron order delivered this week (*although I am working with Blue Apron this year, we paid for this week of meals ourselves because we love ‘em!) and last night’s Pan-Seared Steaks with Green Peppercorns and Roasted Fingerling Potatoes was probably one of our favorite meals from them yet. Everything about this meal, from the steak, to the potatoes, the sauce, and the sautéed spinach, was just incredible.
I just wish we had more for seconds!
I couldn’t help but smile as I peered into our backyard yesterday evening…some of the grass is finally starting to turn green!
Now if we could juuuuuust have those old leaves magically disappear from the yard, that’d be great. Like, super great.
Soooo, let’s hear it for already being Wednesday!! Woot woot!
