Life These Days and What I Ate Wednesday

Life These Days and What I Ate Wednesday


Our schedules have changed a bit over here lately with the whole “escaping” thing, my extra miles I’m trying to log for the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego marathon coming up and my attempt to get more sleep.

A couple of months ago I would eat dinner at 10 pm and then get on the computer to do work/blog stuff for 3 or so hours and climb into bed exhausted and flustered around 1:30ish (sometimes 3 am).

Not good.

I’ve traded in my late night computer dates for some extra sleep on my Technogel pillow. I’ve also been waking up earlier to get whatever I can get done before the boys wake up and what doesn’t get done, well, just doesn’t get done. Somehow my mocha always gets made first though. I like to get things moving in the morning (in more ways than one).

Once these boys are up my hands are full and I better be on.

I’m pretty sure positive my blog posts have suffered (as has my ability to reply to emails in a timely manner), but I feel better physically and I’m a bit of a nicer person to be around. Right STUFT Daddy?


Why yes.


It only took three pictures to get an acceptable one. Oh, the advantages of a blog and only posting what you want.

Tip of the day- get more sleep. Your body and mind need it.


With that, let’s see what I can bore you with today, shall we?

I’ll try to get in on a little What I Ate Wednesday action with yesterday’s eats.

I won’t show you breakfast because I’m sure you can guess what it is. If not, see this post (egg whites, sugar free jam and my favorite bread).
I scarfed down a Clif MOJO bar in between Strollerwise and the gym to teach my BOSU class.
I love these bars. I have every single flavor they make.
After a short treadmill run and my BOSU class at the gym we had some Green Chia Cookie Monster Dough Dip for lunch again.
We sure know how to not waste any of this stuff.
Who the heck taught that guy to lick the bowl?
Once the boys were down I ate mine. Let me just tell you it was the best lunch ever. I took that Dark Chocolate Frosting and mixed it in with my dip.
I also added a big glob of a mix of peanut butter and Trader Joe’s almond butter.
Oh yes.
Here was my spread complete with Flatout cinnamon crisps, an apple and a Coke Zero.
It made the fact that it took almost an hour for the boys to actually nap a little more tolerable.
Yep. Nap shmap. Whatever.
I ended up making a different dinner for everyone last night.
The boys got this.
I just added the broccoli slaw in the water the last three minutes when the noodles were cooking. I added a couple Laughing Cow cheese wedges also to make it a little cheesier and creamier. Oh and yes, I took that first picture with Kitty’s butt in there on purpose.
You’re welcome.
STUFT Daddy got this that we found at Costco recently. Super easy to prepare
not easy to photograph.
He said it was pretty good, but rich and should be served with another entrée or veggie (and he knows his stuff).
I had my usual roasted broccoli slaw for dinner (with marinara, chicken, fresh basil and a cheese less sandwich). Since I had a couple one comment on here that said it’s okay to keep posting pictures of it here you go.
Dessert was Katie’s ice cream again mixed with half of a frozen banana (thanks for the tip). No picture.
And well, while I’m sure I can bore you with more rambling, this just happened.
I’ll give you one guess who’s at fault. Ugh. And he better not blame his flat friend. Beavis.
Can I fix it?

These guys are up so it’s on. It’s on like Donkey Kong. They wanted to say “hi” and make me smile even with a missing laptop key.

Good morning! Guess what our favorite yogurt is.

Hope they made you smile too.
Gotta jet. Mommy time.
I’ve got a treadmill run and a trip to Costco on the schedule for the day.
What do you have going on?
Anyone know how to put a key back on a laptop?

    Your meals always look so good, I am honestly amazed at how you get it all done!

  3. 3

    Ahhhh your posts always make me laugh!!! I love it!

    The meals are making me drool….I’ve never had a coke zero, but I hear its pretty darn fab!

    I love the idea of tossing some broccoli slaw into mac n cheese! And added cheese is NEVER a bad thing 😉

  5. 5

    How can they NOT make you smile!? Too cute! The keyboard thing has happened to me before and I just pushed down and it locked back in. Not sure if that would work for you though since every computer is different. Yay for sunbuter, I’m e-mailing you now! 😀

    Great post today Kristin. I tell everyone about your blog and then they end up thanking me for not getting any work done. LOL
    First things first…. i bought a sandwich maker and made your breakfast sandwich. fantastic as always!
    Second– don’t stop posting pics of food. i LOVE your food pics and i love reading about new things you try! ( i still need to try the Green cookie dough dip. Oh and i’m stopping to buy sf maple syrup on my lunch to make that frosting!! I was planning on putting it on my “every night ice cream” but i was out of syrup! EPIC FAIL.

    Did you see the Vitatops deal? I literally placed an enormous order on monday (arriving today) and missed out on that one. I’m debating just ordering more because it’s free shipping, but the hubs is going to be annoyed at the massive amount of frozen vita tops we already have in the freezer.

    Take lots of costco pics!!!! Looking forward to tomorrows post with all of your swesome finds! 🙂

      Ha ha. My posts are getting worse by the day. I’m so excited you got a sandwich maker. I use mine every single day (obviously). 🙂 I’ve been thinking of you every night with the whole ice cream thing. So fun having something to look forward to. Ha.
      And YES… totally saw that Vitatops deal. I’m so going to buy some. 🙂 Thanks for reminding me! I hope I have room in the freezer. LOL.
      Don’t be too excited for tomorrow’s post. I didn’t find anything great at Costco besides the norm. Have a good night Ashley!

    Sleep is a miracle drug.

    On mornings where I sleep in past my typical 4:30 am workout wake up call, I am a whole new woman, complete with a painful side effect of lips that will not – *can* not – stop smiling.

    P.S. Brilliant idea w/the flat out crisps!

    Our IT guy had me just put a tiny drop of superglue on the keyboard button and stick it on and it has worked like a charm since!

    Anna W. says:

    Please don’t stop posting pics of your eats (or Kitty’s butt!)! Ditto on the superglue tip.

    Love the pics of you and Stuft Daddy 🙂

    P.S. CUTE video!!!

    OK… PUT THE CRUSHED RED PEPPERS DOWN AND BACK AWAY FROM THE COUNTER. hahahaha. I imagine that when your husband is at costco he has to lug a 20 lb bag of crushed red peppers… like the giant ones they sell of rice.

    And I your food photos always make me hungry and sad about what I’m eating… i may need a break from visiting the awesomeness that is your blog.

      STUFT Mama says:

      Too funny that I’m just now reading this and I just bought red pepper at Costco. Ha ha ha! I wish they sold it in a jumbo size. I’d be all over that. 🙂 Please don’t take a break from visiting. I’ll miss you!!!

    Dont feel bad at all – I am so glad you are taking care of YOU. Thats awesome. Blogs are blogs. Life is……. life. Yes. Wise words right there.
    I have been meaning to make your cookie dough for ohhhhhhh three weeks now. I am addicted to my own paleo waffles currently but I need to take a step back and eat something else for breakfast. Your recipe is next up on the choppin block 😉
