We have had a very pleasant day and had lots of fun. Here is a rundown of the days happenings.
We went to the gym and D was cool with staying in the babysitting room without Mommy. I had a nice workout (for indoors that is). I did 30 minutes on the Step Mill, 30 minutes on the Arc Trainer and then weights.
On the ride home I ate a Larabar that I had packed knowing that I would be famished when I was finished exercising.
When I got home I did about 15 minutes of stretching and foam rolling. I can really feel a difference since I started all this muscle TLC. Then it was definitely shower time.
For lunch I made a yummy salad. In the mix – lettuce, shredded coleslaw mix, pumpkin, hummus, salsa, cottage cheese and 1/4 cup cooked & cooled brown rice. I also had 2 Corn Thins.
I ended lunch with an apple and peanut butter. The next best combo to a banana and PB.
After lunch D and I had to run to the post office (the PB is in the mail DrMom) and then CVS. I told him that since it was so nice out we could go to the park before we went home. Well I think the ride was a little too soothing for him because he ended up falling asleep on the way there.
I took the opportunity to take some pictures of my sweet little cherub. Oh my goodness this boy is my HEART!! I seriously never knew that I could love someone this much.
I finally woke him up – you all know that a long nap leads to trouble at bedtime.
We had a blast at the park. We played catch with his baseball and glove – I keep it in the truck at all times just in case he gets the urge to toss a ball around. Then he wanted to play on all the playground toys. He was feeling daring today and climbed up a few things that he is usually too afraid to attempt. He has never been a climber so this was a big deal. I made a big deal every time he made it to the top and he felt so proud. He also tried to go across the monkey bars a couple times (with my help). He is usually to chicken to try that too. I was really trying to build up his confidence today so that he is willing to try new things at the park. He did a great job today – he really is growing up too fast.
Once we got home I needed a little snack. I had 2 rice cakes with a piece of melted Swiss cheese.
Tonight’s dinner turned into another assembling process. I made chicken for Charlie so I decided to have some. I really do have to force myself to eat meat – it just is not on my list of things that I like to eat. The veggie section of dinner was a sweet potato, zucchini, red pepper and hummus. I took all the goods in the bowl, some chicken and a gluten free tortilla and made a wrap. I actually cut the tortilla into 2 pieces so I was able to make 2 smaller wraps.
About an hour later I had a hankering for something sweet. I made a dried fruit and nut plate to satisfy my sweet tooth. It did the trick.
I checked the weather and it looks like it is supposed to be raining in the AM. I really wanted to run outside tomorrow. Oh well at least I got outside a few times this week.
I hope you had a glorious day. Enjoy your night.
