Taught 8:15 am spin class
Ran 9 miles on the treadmill afterwards at an 8:00 minute mile pace. Surprisingly it felt pretty good. Maybe it was making sure I got more than my money’s worth at Souplantation the previous night. Ha.
Before I forget, just to clear things up, I’m not a fan of the snooze button. I don’t usually use it. But for some reason yesterday morning, I just could not stop pressing it. It was probably because I had high hopes of getting up extra early. Funny how that happens. Ha.
I’m happy to report it wasn’t pressed at all this morning. Phew. I think it put a bit of a damper on my day yesterday.
I mean, I tried to go shopping at Target without my wallet. Yeah. Pretty smart, huh? Especially with toddlers who had their heart set on the Target trip right then and there. Let’s just say you’re lucky you weren’t in the car with us for the next 20 minutes to go get my wallet and try it again and explaining to cranky three years old that you can’t buy anything when you don’t have money with you was more difficult than I thought.
Luckily a fire truck sighting helped a bit once we got everything taken care of.
I posted this on Instagram and a couple people pointed out that their shirts were quite appropriate. Pretty darn funny. I didn’t even realize it.
Here’s a couple of food highlights from yesterday just because.
I’m also pretty darn excited we have some Scotty B’s back in the house.
Oh how I’ve been missing these.
That Ghostly Garlic sauce goes fabulously on just about anything, especially Italian style
burnt veggies dishes.
I put the garlic sauce, Cholula and some marinara on a whole mess of roasted broccoli slaw, roasted brussel sprouts, some more of that Power to the Greens mix and chicken and topped it with additional crushed red pepper, fresh basil and nutritional yeast.
I finally sat down for dinner was late last night during my night time “office hours”.
Pretty sweet set up, huh? Ha. Dang, my computer is a bit dirty.
So… it’s a certain someone’s birthday today. Oh yes it is. Last year we celebrated a little something like this. This year the boys and I have a little fun morning planned. The first thing we want to do is surprise STUFT Daddy with his ginormous cupcake from our best ever low fat cupcakes from a box we made yesterday.
It’s the least we can do. The man has built a masterpiece in our backyard over the past week.
Check out how it looks now.
Complete with swings. Although I tried my best to swing on their little swings
I was told I was not doing it right and to get off.
Luckily I have my own swing on the side with the perfect view.
I’m so spoiled.
Okay, off to tackle the special day. This guy deserves only the best. I’m thankful for him every single minute of every day.
And this guy is up and ready to make sure I don’t forget our morning plans.
Have a great day!
Really, I will give you some recipes in my next post. It’s about time, yes?
