Good morning! Thanks for bearing with me as I adjust my schedule.
Yesterday morning I was up around 6:15. I had a breakfast date planned with my hubby for later in the morning, but, you know me – I can’t wait 3 hours to eat breakfast! So I started my day the way I’ve started many of my days recently – with a banana and almond butter. I mixed it up a bit though and used my honey almond butter.
I’m slowly introducing some finger foods to baby, so along with her usual cereal/fruit mix, I gave her some little pieces of bread for breakfast. She wasn’t too interested, so mama ended up eating the slice of bread instead! 🙂
Hubby, baby, and I headed downtown to this new little cafe around 9 for breakfast. I ordered a bowl of oatmeal with raisins and 2 scrambled eggs. I’ve sort of given up on trying to take pictures while I’m out with baby for the time being. I usually spend most of my time trying to keep her from throwing her toys and taking her shoes off! But just visualize a bowl of oatmeal the size of my head. That’s what I ate! 😀
It was nice to go out for breakfast, just the 3 of us. Since we moved in with my in-laws, we don’t get much time to spend together without anyone else around.
Back at home, baby wasn’t much interested in napping, so we ended up taking her for a walk instead. It was FREAKIN’ COLD! I could actually see my breath. The fact that it was drizzly didn’t help either.
For lunch, I made myself a mocha protein shake. It was tasty, but it wasn’t quite thick enough for me. A shake just isn’t a shake without banana!
- 1 cup of soymilk
- ~2/3 cup of cool decaf coffee
- 4 tbs of veggie protein powder
- 1 tbs of cocoa powder
- splash of vanilla
- 2 packets of stevia
The afternoon was a bit rough. Baby was fussy and wouldn’t nap. Not sure what’s going on with her… I grab a couple snacks on the fly, but didn’t snap pics – an apple and a couple handfuls of cereal.
For dinner, I baked some chicken in the oven sprinkled with granulated garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley. To go along with it, I roasted an acorn squash. OMG – I forgot how much I love acorn squash! It has such a nice, slightly sweet taste to it.
After I put baby to bed, I started doing Biggest Loser Power Sculpt in the basement. I got interrupted a couple of times by baby waking up crying. She just couldn’t settle down. Unfortunately, the trend continued all night long… I eventually finished my video though.
After my workout and my trying times with baby, I needed a treat. So I split a Spooky S’mores Clif Z Bar with my hubby. It was yummy! Just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy me.
Part of why I’ve recently adjusted my blogging schedule is so I can focus on using my time in the evening to get my workouts in, relax a bit, shower, and get to bed at a decent hour. I’m committed to making exercise a part of my daily routine. It’s definitely taken some adjusting to get used to working out at the end of the day when I’m most tired, but it’s when I have the most time to myself. Exercise is as much a priority to me as eating healthy and getting a enough sleep.
How do you make exercise fit into your schedule? Do you exercise at the same time every day?
