Good evening friends. I hope that you have been enjoying the weekend. We had another gorgeous day here in MA.
I went out for a 7.25 mile run very early this morning and it was already in the 60’s. I overdressed again – I am not used to it being so warm.
I made a yummy bowl of oatmeal with pumpkin, a banana and lots of cinnamon for breakfast.
Then I cleaned my house for 2 hours. My floors needed to be vacuumed, dusting was a must and my bathroom needed a good scrubbing. I like to scrub the bathroom floor on my hands and knees – it really looks squeaky clean when I am finished.
After my cleaning extravaganza I had a mango and 2 egg whites which I cooked in the microwave.
For lunch today I decided to make a very fruitful salad – inspired by my sis. She always makes the most delicious looking salads that contain lettuce, strawberries, slices of pear, grapes and cheese. In my salad I had lettuce, strawberries, blackberries, apple, cottage cheese and Maple Grove Farms dressing. It was delicious and both D and Charlie commented on how good it looked. I had 4 Corn Thins – 2 plain and 2 topped with a piece of melted Swiss cheese. I ended lunch with a sweet Jocalat bar – love these things!!!
This afternoon me and my guys went out for some family fun. We took D to play mini golf – he got 2 holes in one. The place we were at had go-carts too so daddy and D went for a little spin. This was D’s first go-cart experience and I was kicking myself for leaving the camera at home. He looked so happy and excited. I couldn’t stop smiling as I watched my sweet baby boy having the time of his life with his daddy. We will definitely be going back.
When we got home I made dinner ASAP - I was starving since I did not have an afternoon snack. We picked up some lean ground bison at Whole Foods today so that I could make tacos for dinner. I made my meal with a gluten free tortilla and my hubs had his taco style. Inside my monster wrap I had lettuce, seasoned bison (I made the seasoning blend with garlic powder, minced dried onions, chilli powder, dried cilantro and oregano), tomato, salsa, avocado and shredded cheese. It was delicious. I even got D to eat the bison. I made him pasta with marinara sauce and added some cooked bison without all the seasoning. He ate every bite.
For dessert I had a golden delicious apple with raw almond butter.
I am just chilling out in my living room waiting for Desperate Housewives to start. I can’t believe that another weekend has flown by - I did have a great one. I got to spend a lot of time with my loved ones and even a friend that I have not seen for years. I am so thankful for these times.
I have a little something planned for the morning. Be sure to come back so you don’t miss out. Have a great night.
