Like always, I am thrilled that Friday has arrived!!
Next week is Spring break for my kids and I am pretty excited about it!! Not only do I get to spend time with them doing fun stuff but it also means that my mornings will be more relaxed for a week. Can I just tell you how much I do NOT love packing lunches every morning. Especially when my coffee hasn’t had time to take effect. The break will be nice!!
Speaking of breaks, did I tell y’all that I booked our Summer vacation? No…I didn’t think so ;-).
After going back and forth for months, I finally decided to bite the bullet(what the heck does that mean anyway?!) and book a trip to Disney World!!
While I myself have never had a raging desire to go, I know it is something my kids will love and have memories of for the rest of their lives. Of course, Disney is sooooo not a cheap trip but I am certainly a cheapy so I went as budget friendly as I could. We are staying at a budget resort(Pop Century) and while it is very basic it seems to be clean and that is an absolute necessity for me!!! Fingers crossed it isn’t bad once we get there!! By the way, if you have stayed there and have a horror story, please DO NOT share it with me. Let me live in my fantasy land, believing that it will all be quite wonderful. Okay. Awesome!!
Now that we got that vacation talk over, lets move right along to food shall we.
Yesterday I made Liam and I matching green monster shakes. I made mine Mama Bear sized and his Baby bear sized. I also used more spinach in mine and he was quite upset that I got more than he did. Seriously kid….you are complaining that you didn’t get enough spinach? I can’t say I blame him. Mine is a prettier color green :-).
You know what else is really good? Quest Bars!!
I actually tried these a couple years back and while I thought they were decent, I could certainly take them or leave them. At that time, I pretty much decided on the leave part. I was at GNC the other day picking up some vitamins for Lance and I noticed that Quest bars were now in the store(used to be available online only) and that there were several new flavors. I REALLY wanted to try the chocolate chip cookie dough but they were out. Boo!!! However, I did get the chocolate peanut butter and coconut cashew to try out. The chocolate peanut butter was so super yummy!!! I have yet to try the coconut cashew but since I have a Costco trip planned for later this morning, I have a feeling it will end up being my snack!! Costco without a full, satisfied belly = a really bad idea!!
Now that we have covered food, let’s see if we can get some fitness talk going on up in here!
I feel really great about all of my workouts this week!! I don’t know if it is because I took a week off due to illness or if it is because I am really enjoying what I have been doing. Pretty much, I am changing it up every day(even slightly) to keep myself from getting bored.
One thing that has helped with that is the website The Daily Hiit. You may be familiar with Body Rock which is also a fitness site with a huge following. The Daily Hiit is the same people who run Body Rock but in a new format which I love. Most of the workouts range from 12-20 minutes but they are stinkin’ hard core. I love too, that you can pick a workout and tailor it to what you are wanting to accomplish. They also give modifications for beginners and I will admit that I have had to use a few and I do not consider myself to be a beginner at all. The best part: All workouts are FREE!!! I love free stuff because remember…..I am a cheap-o!!
