Well, the big post I’ve been planning is set back yet another day. The good thing is that I created one more recipe to add to the post. One post with five recipes? Yeah, I’m doing it, just not today.
To say that I’m exhausted is a bit of an understatement. I’m not complaining, but adding extra marathon training miles to my routine and having these guys really enter their terrible twos at the same time has really done a number on me. The good thing is you don’t have to see any pictures of me in this post. Your welcome.
Here’s a little peak at yesterday.
It started a little something like this.
Then I created that extra recipe for my little project. Check it out.
Oh yeah. It was good. So good that I may just have to repeat it this morning instead of my usual breakfast.
After breakfast it was time for a little prepping in the kitchen.
Cutting and spinning lettuce is a family affair over here (and takes about 3 times longer than it should). It did remind me though about this post I wrote a LONG time ago about how we prep and store our lettuce.
Mid morning we were off to the gym. The boys hung out with their “girlfriend” in play care while I sweated out 10 miles on the treadmill. Not sure how long exactly it took me and I almost ate it when the treadmill stopped automatically at an hour. What the? I had to restart it to finish my run and it erased my miles I had already ran. Bleh.
I thought we’d enjoy a nice little lunch outside when we got home. (“Thought” is the key word.)
While I made the boys some toddler friendly, gluten free grilled cheese sandwiches, they discovered how to turn on the hose and spray each other.
Then when I tried to put my salad together this happened.
Yep. That’s Joaquin’s sandwich in Turk’s water.
Yep. That’s him stepping and splashing in the gross sandwich water.
Yep. That’s the gross dirty sandwich water all over his head.
Oh and yep, while all of this was going on outside Kitty made himself comfortable on the high chair tray(and with a cheese grater). I’m sure that’s sanitary.
Want to come over?
I’ll share my salad with you.
(In the bowl- romaine and Costco rotisserie chicken topped with TATS BBQ sauce, Marie Sharps hot sauce and Mustard Girl mustard.)
I was looking forward to naptime. Not sure why since it looked a little like this.
This happened about 7 times in a matter of 10 minutes or so. So much for getting work done while trying to watch The Ellen Show. I better kiss those days goodbye.
I also really need to get my hands on some good toddler discipline books. I’ll take any suggestions.
I got desperate late afternoon and went for a Coke Zero
and a huge bowl of protein fudgy STUFT protein cookie dough.
I was desperate friends. I had to top it with some NuttZo and a few of these Peanut Butter Panda Puffs.
Joaquin got this one from Trader Joe’s.
I have yet to try it (with my not having dairy and all), but it looks delicious.
It was a little icy, but I love the fact that the serving size was huge and the calories were low. There’s a banana chocolate chip vitatop hiding somewhere under there.
I’m inspired to create a STUFT version now.
Okay, that’s all.
Recipes coming soon! Happy Thursday!
It’s raining over here and I’m loving it. How’s the weather where you are?
