A boot camp class Saturday and a total of about 20 treadmill miles over two days. Not consecutive, it was actually three different treadmill runs and my longest one was this one.
I had to try to get some miles in before next week’s race.
Yeah, I have a race next weekend. What the? It’s America’s Finest City Half Marathon. Last year I had some “issues” (similar to the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon). Hopefully things will go a bit better this year. We shall see.
I made the mistake of setting my alarm for 6:30 this morning. Silly me. I have a 2 1/2 year old alarm that goes off religiously at 6:00 on the dot. Sometimes with dry underwear, sometimes without. It all depends on the day. I’ll let you guess how today started out. Ha.
I just opened a pack of new Starbucks espresso beans and made this little beauty.
I’m loving my homemade Café Americano more and more.
Anyhoo…….. this past weekend.
I bet I made a few people laugh walking around Costco with this fine sticker on my butt on Saturday.
Yep. I found it there after our Costco adventures and after I wrote the blog post about our trip with Flat Kitty. Just lovely. Who the heck knows how long I was sporting that bad boy. If people weren’t looking at me funny for pushing around two cranky toddlers and Flat Kitty, they were definitely laughing and pointing at this.
I finally kept my promise to STUFT Daddy and made him a yummy dinner Saturday night for date night. I went with taco pie.
I think my problem with burning things is rubbing off on my other cooking though because that was the most overdone taco pie I’ve ever made. STUFT Daddy said it was the best one ever. He’s a liar, but I appreciated it.
I didn’t make this, but Judah did some pretty darn cool disappearing tricks that I thought were worth showing off.
While he was busy working on his magic, I made some Hooligan Pancakes for breakfast for the boys and I.
I forgot how good these are. And yes, I was craving the nut butter like crazy yesterday. I had PB Crave and Naturally More on those bad boys. Throughout the day I’m pretty sure I ate a little of every open nut butter jar we have in the house. You have those days sometimes too, yes?
I made time for my morning coffee routine Sunday and lived a little dangerously again with the freezer placement of my cup.
It all turned out though. Dang that ear.
The boys made sure to annoy Kitty as much as possible.
What can I say, they’re huggers.
I also made another green juice drink. I was craving one after my little experiment the other day.
Juicy Green Citrus Tea
1 pack Good Earth Ginseng Citrus tea (brewed with just 1/4 cup water), CocoaVia Summer Citrus packet, lots of kale, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, about 1 cup of cold water and 1 cup crushed ice.
It was still pretty chunky at the end, but maybe that’s how these green juice drinks are supposed to be. Or maybe I’m not doing it right. Who knows.
Here’s the new Good Earth tea I tried out. It was pretty good, but I have yet to try it out just by itself.
My drink went with some protein cold oats and vanilla protein frosting.
You really don’t need exact measurements. I only measure them because I use my kitchen scale instead of dirtying extra tablespoons and stuff. I’m pretty sure it’s about a 1/2 tablespoon of chia and a tablespoon or so of the GNC vanilla egg protein powder. Ice cream dream frosting recipe is here.
I topped with blueberries.
We did make time to play on playground after church last night though.
Judah sported a little static while Joaquin sported a mean wedgie. Ha ha.
Love my men.
This picture just makes me smile.
And well, we made some life decisions over the weekend too, but I’ll share those later.
Life is all about taking chances and living your dream, right?
My goal for this week is to make time to pray, relax, take care of my men and smell the flowers. I haven’t been doing enough of any of those.
I also haven’t been giving you enough.
I forgot I had stocked up on all these chia shots from the San Francisco Marathon the other weekend.
I want to give you some shots from The Chia Company.
Leave me a comment here and tell me something you made this past weekend or a goal you have for this week.
I’ll pick three winners to get three shots tomorrow morning. A little gift from me to you. My hoarding comes in handy sometimes, doesn’t it? (And yeah, only three shots each. I don’t want you overdoing it or anything.)
You can tweet a little something about winning some @thechiacompany chia shots from @stuftmama if you really want an extra entry. Just leave an additional comment.
If you’re bored, take some Flat Kitty roasting pictures for the big roast. Email them, post on Facebook, post them to Instagram, whatever floats your boat. (I can get them from Instagram to put in the post, can’t I?) Wait a minute, how fun would it be to have a big Instagram Flat Kitty party? Hmmmm….
Okay. I’m off. Happy Monday friends! Hope you make time to smell the flowers this week.
