WIAW

Happy Wednesday!! I miss blogging OH so much. I never realized how much time I spent reading/writing until I could no longer use my computer… Now i’ve been sucked into trashy reality tv. But, I’m not complaining. It makes me feel so normal and down to earth. Not that I ever thought I was weird…

Anyways. It’s that time of the week again!! What I ate Wednesday šŸ™‚ If you haven’t joined in the fun…Do so now and link up to Jenn’s post!

Here’s the breakdown:

Wow, I really got my fruit in for the day didn’t i?? During the Summer I usually eat A LOT of fresh fruit. I don’t hate it. I also had a sugar freeĀ jello for dessert… Because my day is NOT complete without a lilĀ sumptinĀ sumptin.

Workout consisted of an hour of bootcampĀ that kicked off at 5:45 am followed by 10 minutes on the arc trainer! I’ve been LOVING my morning workouts. Every timeĀ I hear my alarm go off at 5am I am almost (dare I say) excited to get my workout on. It feels good to accomplish a workout by 7am.Ā  Today we worked on a lot of strength training – my arms and abs are SO weak. I need to pay more attention to them!

Outfit:

  • Dress: Navy One shoulder – Forever 21 ($10)
  • Belt: Francescas Closet (came with a dress)
  • Flip Flops: Rainbows. So comfortable($48)
  • Bracelet: Francescas Closet ($18)
  • Earrings: White House Black Market ($28)
  • Hair pin: J Crew ($15)

Close up of the bracelet and earrings:

Unfortunately my little peanut Maddie fell on Saturday and busted up her face pretttty badly.Ā 

So we’ve been keeping ourselves inside to prevent her scab from scarring… Can you guess what we did??

Bowling! They actually did pretty well… Averaging a score of 80 for Maya (5 years old) and 60 for Maddie (2 years old). We also played arcadeĀ games, won some superĀ lame cheapĀ prizes, and enjoyed the bowling alley to ourselves with a dance party or two.

My mom has been kind enough to let me use her computer until I move so I should be posting a lot more! Enjoy your night šŸ™‚

QUESTIONS: Do you feel lost without your computer? I clearly depend on technology a wee bit too much.

WIAW

Happy Wednesday! Yay for it being the middle of the week. Boo on the rain that has been attacking us since Sunday… I thought May was for FLOWERS!?

Let’s get to the eats. I’m doing another WIAW courtesy of Jenn!

Breakfast – Smoothie Bowl. I could only finish half of this! I saved the other half in the fridge but I’m not so sure it will be good tomorrow??

In the bowl: 2 cups of spinach, 1 cup of fresh blueberries, 1/2 frozen banana, 3/4 cup almond milk, 3/4 of a scoop of vanilla protein

Snack: Gala Apple. Eaten down to the core.

Lunch: Whole Wheat sandwich thin with turkey, melted Muenster cheese, pickle slices, tomato slices, lettuce and a little bit of Annie’s lite Honey Mustard. 90 calorie pack of Mint Chocolate Rice Cakes.

Dinner: Homemade PF Changs Lettuce Wraps w/ ground turkey with a side of roasted butternut squash

Um, I highly recommend you make these. They are amazing…and a lot more healthy than the ones you order at PF Changs!

Dessert: Why can’t I go a night without it?? Oh well.

For the record.. I only had one šŸ™‚

Since this post is all about moi (well everyone usually is) I thought i’d do something different and show you a day in the life of me.

5am: Alarm goes off. Snooze.

508: Must get up…

510: brush teeth, get dressed in gym clothes

518: Head to gym

535: Arrive into gym, half asleep, wandering around deciding on camp24 or spin class.

540: Chose Camp 24 (Mix of Body Pump and Cardio)

545: While setting up teacher asks me if this is my first time here. When I reply with yes…She says I can tell. Oh, thanks. Excuse me while I yawn again.

645: Class is over. Head downstairs to use the Arc Trainer. Cant find my headphones for my ipod. This should be quick

655: 10 minutes done… I told you it would be quick. I cannot work out without music!

700: Get back in car to drive home

715: Shower

740: Pack lunch, prepare breakfast.

750: Enjoy Smoothie Bowl

810: Leave for work (Rarely do I leave ON time)

830: Arrive at work…Girls are still sleeping. Score.

855: 2-year-old wakes up. Change her, make her breakfast. She chose Oatmeal with raisins, cinnamon and a dollop of peanut butter. Are we sure this isn’t MY child??

930: 5-year-old wakes up. She wants to know what I’m wearing so she can find something similar. This happens everyday and meltdowns often occur.

945: Make 5 year olds breakfast (Cereal w/ strawberries) and listen to her whine because she has to use regular milk instead of almond milk. I really am rubbing off on these two.

1015: Practice letters & numbers

1045: Snack time – I have an apple…They have 1/2 an apple with PB

1110: The girls want to lift weights.

1140: Read books, play pretend, make a mess.

130: Catch up on blogs. Had a couple of phone interviews.

400: Kids wake up.

405: The parents came home and I was off work

410: Confused because I’m done my workout, I’m off early and I can’t spend money!

440: Home Sweet Home. Comfy clothes on. iCarly with my cousin.

530: Start preparing dinner because I’m ravenous.

600: Eat dinner

630: Eat dessert

700: Start blogging, chat on phone, gchat. I’m an awesome multitasker

I live a prettttty boring life. I’m sorry you just had to read that.

Sorry for the creepy weird stance.. Not sure what’s going on there.
By the way (back to food talk) – I’ve been stalking Kristin since her guest post last week on Julie’s blog and have made 4 of her meals. Yes, 4. I highly recommend them all. Here are the links to her recipes and the pictures below are hers. I wouldn’t dare post mine after seeing hers!
Make them, you won’t be disappointed. I’m not one to lie when it comes to good food.
Make it a good one šŸ™‚
