Today D and I had our weekly babysitting shift at the gym. I am not sure what was going on but the kiddos were WILD! Even mine was not on his best behavior – he pinched (twice), he did not listen and he snapped crayons in half (that is not ok with me). He has now earned himself a day without his Wii Lego Star Wars game – sorry Daddy, no gaming tonight. Trust me he was not alone. Other kids were biting, punching and pushing – they were all at war. I managed to make it out of there without a headache.
Once we got home I needed food and just decided to have an early lunch.
First let me recap the AM eats.
I started my day with another load of spinach – smoothie style. It was delicious but Charlie would tell you differently. D tasted it and he liked it. He even asked me to make him one after he ate lunch so I just might whip one up for him in a little bit.
Into the Vita-Mix went -
1 cup Vanilla Almond milk
1 tbsp Chocolate Rice Protein powder
2 Stevia Packets
2 cups Organic Baby Spinach
lots of Ice
I also had the usual bowl of oaty love – 1/2 cup oats cooked on the stove with lots of water. I then mixed in 1/3 a banana and cinnamon. Once it made it into the bowl I topped my oats with the rest of the banana and sunflower seed butter.
I had a big old cup of decaf tea too.
Now lunch was of course a salad and it was darn tasty. I really can’t eat enough veggies. This concoction contained lettuce, leftover roasted eggplant, zucchini, black beans and cottage cheese. I spiced it up with lots of curry powder, cinnamon, paprika and chili powder (that just happens to be my favorite blend of spices).
I also had an apple with PB.
Then I ended on a chocolaty note with a gluten free Cocoa Loco Bar.
This afternoon I am going to try and get my heart rate monitor fixed. It has been acting funky lately. It will all of a sudden go to zero and then flick back and forth between working and not. I am not sure if the battery is toast but I mine as well get it fixed now since it is still under warranty.
I hope you are having a great Wednesday. I will let you know if D does in fact drink his greens today or not.
See you later.
