I stayed up a little past my bedtime last night doing some last minute Cyber shopping at both Reebok and Quest Nutrition. The special Reebok sale has been extended until today so that’s pretty cool. The custom shoe design card giveaway is open until Wednesday too! Don’t forget to enter!
I kept up with my early morning run plan this morning. Didn’t really pick up the pace like I had planned. It was more just like trying to keep myself on the treadmill to get it done. I can’t tell you how many times I looked at the mileage.
Thank you Gossip Girl for a little help though.
I got it done (I did step off the treadmill to get a drink of water quite a few times- oopsies) and then moved on with the morning. I’m really digging the whole get it done first thing in the morning deal.
So let’s see.
Two great ideas for this Tuesday morning.
First the boys’ brilliant idea.
And might I say, they have some decorating skill.
And an eating skill.
My great ideas lately. I only have two.
When there are nights that call for fast Trader Joe dinner fixes, I try to make myself feel better about warming frozen pizzas up in the microwave by serving them with roasted veggies for the boys.
It helps balance it out a little bit, yes? The boys have been digging roasted cauliflower lately by the way.
My best idea was last night.
I had a bit of hearty snack yesterday afternoon.
I’ve tried a couple of the different Arctic Zero flavors. I’ve been pretty impressed so far by the taste and texture. Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely not regular ice cream or anything, but it’s fun to eat something creamy right out of the pint container.
I’m not sure though my tummy agrees with all the dairy though. Bummer, but that’s okay. You work with what you’ve got right?
So anyway, last night I wanted a little something warm for dessert, but wanted it to be sweetener and dairy free since my tummy was still feeling the effects of the afternoon snackage.
I made my recipe for healthy cake batter cookie dough crumble, but without the sugar substitute or sugar and baked it along with a sliced apple sprinkled with apple pie spice on parchment paper.
I baked it for 15 minutes at 375.
Scooped it in a little cute bowl.
Added a little unsweetened vanilla almond milk and viola.
A clean, sweetener free, healthy apple pie crumble. Perfect for a little cold weather late night snack.
And now, it’s time to try to find our darn Elf on a Shelf. I have no idea which box he is in and we all need his help right about now.
Have a great day!
Both giveaways are still open and more are on the way. I’m putting together a 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways like I did last year. Can’t wait for that business.
Totally random, but on average I get up 2-3 times during the night to take the boys to the bathroom or whatever. How many times (if any) do you wake up throughout the night? When do we get to sleep through the night again? 15 more years? Ha ha.
