Last night I had Charlie smear Vicks VapoRub all over my chest so that I could actually breath when I was laying down. Let me tell you, that stuff ROCKS!!! I slept so much better. I was able to go to the gym at 5 this morning and get a workout in before heading back there with my side-kick for our 2 hour babysitting session. I was so happy to be able to run today and it didn’t wipe me out.
Before going to the gym this morning I had to have a little something to eat because I was starving when I woke up. I toasted a Kashi waffle and topped it with a tablespoon of Smucker’s Low Sugar Raspberry Preserves.
My breakfast bowl was quite a beauty and not only to my eyes but to my tummy as well. I mixed 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup butternut squash, 1/2 cup cran-apple sauce, TJ’s High Fiber cereal, Cinnamon Puffins and a tablespoon PB. I love how the cran-apple sauce mixes with the yogurt and turns lovely shades of pink.
After my shift at the gym, I dragged D to Old Navy to see if I could find more Christmas gifts for my family. I was successful. I can cross my mommy and Papa off the list. I still need to find something for my Nana and Grampy, plus I need to get a few more things for my honey. I guarantee he hasn’t even started shopping yet.
I made some lunch when we got home. My little man had a nice bowl of pasta with olive oil – sometimes he is so easy to feed.
I made a nice plate of veggies (1/2 a tomato, summer squash & artichoke hearts), 1/2 cup cottage cheese which I seasoned with dill and fresh ground black pepper. I also had a piece of TJ’s Sprouted Wheat toast.
I was in the mood for a little something sweet to end my lunch, so I toasted another piece of Sprouted Wheat bread, topped it with a tablespoon of PB and a tablespoon of 365 Vegan Chocolate Chips – thanks goodness for the dairy free chips. This was of course amazing – you all know my love of PB but combine it with chocolate, well it doesn’t get any better than that for this mommy.
D is just relaxing after quite a busy morning – his 2 fav buds were at the gym today. The three of them were nonstop madness the entire 2 hours. I think I will let him veg for a few more minutes then maybe we can do some baking and go to the library. I would like to make Charlie something yummy to come home to tonight.
Okay – the little monkey just came in and asked for a banana – I guess it is feeding time again. I told you he was a busy boy today. Now that he devoured that he wants yogurt – that’s my healthy boy!!!
