So I’m still buried over here. I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon, but I’ll keep working away at it. Baby steps, yes?
Taught a spin class.
Ran 3 quick treadmill miles.
Sat on a spin bike during a conference call for about 30 minutes.
That’s nice, yes?
The boys and I attempted to make a workout video last night since it’s been awhile, but as soon as we finished I realized there wasn’t any more space left on the camera and it wasn’t taping. That was fun.
Okay, so I have some serious questions that I need answered ASAP and was hoping you could help me out.
Here we go.
Has this every happened to you?
That was so not fun yesterday morning. I was trying to microwave a banana with egg whites. It didn’t work out so well and was really watery. Weird.
DO you ever try to motivate yourself by putting on new shoes?
Do you play with your food?
We do too! Always.
Do you ever have a two course lunch just so you can finish with something sweet? This has been a staple as of late. The first course is a salad of some sort with lots of protein.
The second course is the rest of the roasted squash (whatever it might be for the day, yesterday it was kabocha squash) served up sweet style.
Yeah, that was amazing. I roasted it with coconut spray, cinnamon, my favorite cocoa powder and some Trader Joe’s pumpkin pie spice then topped it with low calorie peanut butter frosting, Naturally More peanut butter and my attempt to recreate Artisana Cocoa Bliss.
Speaking of, have you ever had this?
I was trying to save that little package for a special occasion, but just couldn’t hold out anymore. It went down last night under a protein version of creamy dreamy ice cream.
Do you think sock monkeys are the coolest things ever?
I sure hope so. If you don’t like sock monkeys we just may have some problems with our relationship.
Do you ever wake up to something that looks like this?
Oh man. This has been going on for several days now and STUFT Daddy and I don’t know what to do. We never had a problem before, but now the boys are coming into our room all hours of the night and climbing in bed with us. Then they have to be taken to the bathroom several times and through a tantrum when we try to put them back in their beds.
We need help. Any advice in that would be greatly appreciated.
And lastly, I’ve got a race coming up this weekend. The Silver Strand Half Marathon. Last year the boys and I ran it together for our half marathon for Amelia and the year before I ran it with the boys as well.
I’m not looking to PR or anything since I haven’t really been running that much since The big Runner’s World Hat Trick extravaganza. I’m toying with the idea of pushing them again just for fun. It won’t be easy as they are darn hefty now, but might be the last chance I have to push them in a race.
What do you think? Yay? Nay? I can’t decide.
Okay, we’re off. My belly is full of butternut squash which I tried to cook with an egg again, but it didn’t work as well. Luckily I roasted the other half of the squash sweet style and ate that right up with two cups of coffee.
That’s just dangerous. Oh and eating the skin on butternut squash is not recommended. Kabocha is much better.
Have a great day! We’re off to get a few things done before I teach a little PE class this afternoon.
