Hello bloggers!! I hope you all had a great day. We have been quite busy and enjoyed lots of family time together.
I started my day with a frosty 8 mile run – man I can’t wait for Spring. I don’t think the lentils I had for dinner agreed with me because I ended up having the worst stomach ache. I just sucked it up and chugged on. I finished in a little over an hour regardless of my tummy woes. I guess I won’t be eating those again after all.
I really did not want anything too heavy for breakfast so I just had a piece of whole wheat toast, Sunbutter, 1/4 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 cup pumpkin jazzed up with a tsp agave and cinnamon.
Then it was out the door to D’s karate class. He did really good today – there wasn’t any acting up at all. He even told his Sensei that he was going to behave today. We had our usual stop at Border’s when the class was over. I snacked on this Luna bar.
When we got home I tried to lay down for a little while (my belly was still not feeling right). It lasted about 30 minutes before I just had to get up. I thought about some lunch because I was honestly hungry but hesitant to add anything to the ache in my gut. A little while later I settled on some cooked veggies – summer squash, zucchini, red pepper and alfalfa sprouts which I cooked in a pan with nonstick spray. I topped some cooked whole wheat couscous with the veg, 3 oz. cooked ground turkey and then added lots of my favorite blend of spices (cardamom, coriander, cumin, paprika, cinnamon and turmeric).
I ended lunch with 1/2 a cup Greek yogurt with an agave swirl and a No Pudge Brownie.
We decided to head out for some family fun. Before we left I had a Raw Crunch bar – soooooo good.
We took D roller skating. This was only his second time - he did OK.
Charlie playing with the camera in the mirror – I love D’s expression.
He does pretty good on the carpet but get him out on the skating floor and he is very clumsy. We had a great time :)
As we were leaving D requested some food so we decided to get something for dinner. We tried a place called WAH-BO which turned out to be great. D had a burger and tortilla chips.
Daddy had a double bison burger with “air fries” – they are baked NOT fried.
And I had a 3 oz. bison burger with lettuce, tomato and mustard. I also had the "air fries” – yeah they are awesome. This was a great dinner. It was filling but not over the top belly busting.
Our little man has himself a sweet tooth – he gets that from both mommy & daddy. We were not too far from Hebert’s Candy Mansion which has a make your own sundae bar. D was thrilled to get himself a dish of cookie dough with some caramel topping. I opted for the raspberry sorbet as I am pretty sure the ice cream they serve is not hormone free. I topped my dish with strawberries, blueberries, a couple gummy bears and sprinkles. I pretty much ate the toppings and some of the sorbet – it had an odd texture.
We arrived home past D’s bed time so we tucked the little monkey in ASAP. He fell asleep so fast – he has had one heck of a day. I am ready to hit the hay myself. See you tomorrow.
