I found myself super tired yesterday evening around 5:30, all I wanted to do was to get in the bed. I guess the adrenaline rush from the little fender-bender yesterday had worn off and I crashed. No pun intended . I hadn’t planned anything for dinner. It was going to be a “cereal night” because we were out of everything and I desperately needed to go to the grocery store. I couldn’t really pin point anything I wanted. I had a handful of peanuts, a few bites of granola, and a of couple almonds before I went to my default choice of Honey Bunches of Oats. Can’t go wrong with that! A few hours later I had a Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabar. Not a nutritiously stellar dinner, but I was satisfied and that’s all that matters.
I slept in about 30 minutes this morning. I couldn’t pull myself away from the warm man sleeping next to me. But alas, his alarm went off and we both had to face the day .
I didn’t get my quiet time in this morning because Aidan got up with us and Jeremy and I were catching up from the week. Other than that, it was routine as usual.
~ 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
Microwave the oats and the almond milk for 1:30-2:00 min stirring often to prevent boiling over. Stir in extras.
….same but different
My workout this morning consisted of 30 minutes on the elliptical, which was pretty intense. I was having a hard time getting my heart rate up so I kept having to increase the resistance. After that, I intended to do the same lower body workout that I did last week, but my legs were really tired for some reason (5 mile run perhaps?). So I just did the exercises that would work the large muscle groups.
Post workout snack
I ended up eating just the almonds and ate the banana after the grocery trip.
Right after the gym we went to the grocery store. Aidan and I play a little game called “How Fast Can We Get Out Of Here?”. Depending on the amount of things we need, I will set a time and the goal is…..you guessed it, to see how fast we can get out of there. Today we made it out 5 minutes under our goal! Holla! I love a full pantry and refrigerator, but man do I hate grocery shopping. I try to streamline it with a grocery list that I type up in word. It has all the items listed in order to follow how the store is set up. Also, I keep my coupons in order the same way. OCD much? Hey, it comes in handy sometimes.
We went home to drop off the groceries, then I had to go to Target for some other items. While I was there I picked up my needed items and then browsed for a while. Usually that spells trouble, but today I found the clearance section and got some awesome deals!
I have a serious addiction to really like Larabars, a lot. But they are very pricey. Between $1.20 and $1.50 per bar. I get them only when they are on sale. One of these packages was $5.60 and the other was $4. I am set for a week several weeks! The Annie’s Mac-n-Cheese was on sale for $3.60. I love when I find good-for-you foods on sale. Oh Happy Day!
When I got home from Target I was a little hungry so I had the other half of the banana, but really didn’t feel like anything else. I showered, talked to a friend, and THEN 3 hours later…..I was finally hungry.
Tuna fish salad on an Orowheat Sandwich Thin, baby carrots, grapes and strawberries.
Mandi’s Tuna Salad: makes 2 servings
This intuitive eating thing is taking time to get used to.
Right now this is what’s going on.
Luke and Daddy are in a serious match. Aidan is thinks he is involved too.
Hopefully the last part of my day will be as lovely as the first part.
