Hello Blog Followers! I love seeing that people are reading my blog! Please make sure to check back often and leave a comment to say 'Hi'!
Today was a busy day. My oldest, finished 1st grade today. So she and I had a morning together, having a party at her school, then off to do some shopping. Now that School is officially over, I'm not sure what to do all day with my 3 kids. I really need to make a Summer Schedule. One thing for sure, I'll be using my membership at the YMCA a lot more! The kids and I will need to have some daily 'away' time from each other.
Breakfast was a mixture of things found in my fridge- eggs, chicken sausage, spinach, tomato and avocado.
I tend to eat leftovers, or anything that is going to spoil soon. I LOVE leftover, and think it's a MUST for any healthy lifestyle. My kids, my work (Scentsy & Velata), my workouts, my hubby, my house, and Church- all these things take a lot of time, so I have to have easily accessible foods. I promise, anyone can eat healthy, it's just about preparation and dedication! Anyways, off the soapbox!
My Daughter is so beautiful, don't ya agree!?!? She looks just like her Daddy! I married a handsome man!
With all the shopping she and I were doing, I was getting really hungry. So I ended up having a huge salad at our local grocery store. I was grateful they had healthy options!
Dinner was another HUGE salad at home, with Grilled Chicken, avocado, peppers, tomatoes and my favorite dressing- homemade mayo mixed with red wine vinegar.
Have I told you how much I LOVE Instagram? I'm starting to meet some really amazing people that are doing the same things that I am trying to do. Most of these people are Pro's compared to me; I look up to them so much! One girl, HungryFitness posted this Instagram photo, and I had to share- it's the basics of what the WHOLE30 plan is all about. She is starting her Whole30 tomorrow!
My exercise today was Crossfit and Hot Yoga. Crossfit was hard, I did some dead lifts, mostly working on proper form today, and then did jump rope and box jumps for 8 minutes (4 reps), with a 20 second rest in between each rep. I had a massive headache once I started doing the box jumps. I am not sure if I need more water, or a better Pre-Workout meal. Any ideas? I would love not to have that headache again- OUCH!
Our first official day of Summer Break! The kids and I will eventually get this schedule down, today was better, but still it was a lot of fighting with each other and TV time...bad Mommy! Tomorrow we will work on being more productive!
Breakfast was Ginger Eggs- which I've ate a million times now, and still love them!
Lunch was a Salad with leftover grilled chicken and a couple pieces of chicken sausage. I know a lot of my pictures are starting to get boring...I eat so much of the same thing. So I am going to challenge myself to get lots of new things made for next week- I promise!
We had swim lessons tonight, so we were going to be getting back home pretty late, I knew my body would be hurting for fuel, so before we left I had a snack of an apple and a couple tablespoons of almond butter. This is one of my favorite snacks! I feel evil eating it, but then I know it's all real food that my body needs.
Dinner was Chicken Curry! I've made this also before, and my family and I love it. My family eats theirs with Jasmine Rice, but I have mine just plain. It is totally delish!
I have a stomach ache tonight, so I need to get some good rest and hope it's gone in the morning.
Ending my day with my cup of tea and blogging!
