This will be the first day in three weeks that both of my kid are in school. I SO do not know what to do with myself. Wait a minute….I think I can figure it out! 😉
Actually, I miss having them around BUT I would be lying if I said I didn’t like the 5 hours of “me” time I will get today. I am going to start it off at the gym, with a nice little run on the treadmill, most likely followed up by a short weight training session.
After I get my exercise in, I cannot guarantee that I will be even slightly productive today. See, it is rainy and blah outside which makes me want to curl up on the couch with a blanket, catching up on my DVR’d shows while sipping some hot tea and ignoring the pile of laundry that needs to be folded.
What I Ate Wednesday
Long time no see this around here, right?! I don’t have a good reason why I stopped doing it, other than I got lazy and didn’t want to photograph every meal and snack I ate. Somehow, I have managed to get over that laziness so I think I will bring it back as a regular Wednesday post. How bout’ that 🙂
Sooooo, let’s get started already!
Breakfast: A serving of cereal. I think this may be the first time I have EVER eaten an exact serving of cereal. Cereal serving size is actually pretty ridiculous to me. I mean, there is no one I know that would be satisfied with a measly 3/4 cup of cereal.
Snack: Since my breakfast was pretty darn tiny, I got hungry while Liam and I were out and about running some errands. I had actually packed a Clif Z Bar but the little man begged me for popcorn and how can I resist his precious face. I couldn’t. Just as I wasn’t able to resist the popcorn he offered me up. It was a mighty tasty snack!!
Lunch: I wanted something easy that had some staying power so I whipped up a couple of scrambled “everything” eggs. I call them that because they had just about everything in them. Celery, onion, tomato, spinach, avocado and even hummus. I paired it with a small tortilla and was actually satisfied with that meal.
Snack: I have to admit, I ate this snack pretty much because I was craving something, rather than being truly hungry. What I really wanted was a cookie but I didn’t need it so I whipped up a yogurt bowl instead. Plain Greek yogurt, frozen blueberries, Kashi Go Lean Crunch and a drizzle of honey. It killed the sweet tooth and added some much needed protein to my day.
Dinner: Yum! That’s really all I can say about that. I cooked the chicken breast in the crock pot with some basic seasoning, added a tiny pat of butter on each breast and chicken broth poured on top. The chicken was perfection. Juicy and super tasty!!! I also made a batch of sun-dried tomato and basil quinoa and threw a few green beans on top for color.
How do you like to spend the time you get to yourself?
