Nice freaking title. Ha.
I had a little break from the computer for a bit yesterday. Not by choice, but because my laptop charger decided to bite the dust. I have to admit though that I didn’t rush out the door to purchase a new one right away. It was a welcome little excuse to not write a post and get some other things done around here (or start some anyway).
Hmm…. I’m not sure how long this new adapter is going to work though. It’s not charging my computer, but at least it’s letting me work while plugged in.
Beavis. I hate technology.
We’ve been struggling with getting the boys to stay in bed all night. I told Judah that he need to stay in his room until it was light out and then he could come wake me up.
Well, that little angel listened to Mommy, and right at 6:00am I heard a little voice by the side of my bed, “Mommy, can I get up now, it’s light outside.”
Sweet, sweet boy.
The same guy also said these exact words a little later in the day though when I was getting dressed.
“Mom, I think you need your Spanx.”
I’m not even kidding. STUFT Daddy heard it too. I had to laugh. I also had to tell him that my Spanx were already on. Always.
Yesterday started with this little mix.
Yeah. Baking eggs is my new thing. Less dishes. Less mess. More smiles.
(In the bowl: egg whites, spinach, a pear and cinnamon.)
I wrapped it in a Flatout with a little coconut oil and scarfed it down on the way to the gym.
Taught a spin class.
Ran 6 miles on the treadmill.
Here’s what kind of footwear I haul into the gym Wednesday mornings just in case you care.
Yesterday was our designated “family day” for our staycation.
We had a great afternoon/night together, which actually was pretty much the same as our last staycation family day (minus the bike ride). Oh and yeah, I just clicked on my own link and realized I even wore the same sweatshirt. Classy.
Here’s a couple pictures from our family time.
Heck yes, it started with Starbucks. Heck yes, the boys even got a special treat.
Heck yes, I’m the luckiest lady in the world to be blessed with these fine men.
Heck yes, we live in one amazing place.
After our afternoon excitement we ended up at BJ’s for dinner, but I played it cool and kept my phone away.
I played it even cooler at home when I whipped this little no grain microwave muffin together once all my men were in bed.
Since the weather has gotten a bit colder, (yes, even in California, I’m very sensitive to cold weather) I haven’t really been craving creamy dreamy ice cream like I usually do at night. I’ve been experimenting a bit just because I always need a little something sweet to finish off my night.
Last night it was this little creation.
It’s a must try if you ask me.
No Grain STUFT Pumpkin Microwave Muffin
2 tablespoons almond flour (15g)
2 tablespoons coconut flour (14g)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
cinnamon to taste
5-7 drops liquid vanilla stevia
1 packet stevia
splash of vanilla
1/3 cup egg whites or one whole egg
2 tablespoons pumpkin
1-2 teaspoons melted coconut oil (optional)
2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
Combine all ingredients. (Make sure to melt the coconut oil first before adding it in if you are using it. I didn’t use it in this version and it still came out delicious.)
Pour into microwave safe mug sprayed with nonstick spray.
Microwave for 3 minutes (or 3:33 if you have an old slow microwave like us).
It’s good enough to just eat plain.
But sometimes, if you’re like me, you need a little frosting.
Coconut Cream Peanut Protein Frosting
2 tablespoons PB2 (12 g)
1 tablespoon coconut flour (7 g)
1- 2 tablespoons GNC vanilla egg protein powder
nondairy milk until get desired consistency
Mix all dry ingredients together. Add a little nondairy milk (or milk of choice) and stir. Continue to add a little milk and stir until get desired consistency. (Yes, I didn’t measure. I was lazy. It was late.)
But……. this muffin was delicious.
I’ll be repeating it again soon.
Oh, before I forget, the winner of The Long Run is
Woo hoo! Email me your address and I’ll send you your book.
Happy Thursday everyone!
