I hope you had a beautiful Valentine’s Day, whether or not you had been celebrating together with your love, your Galentines, your kiddos, or your pet 🙂 For at present’s publish, I assumed I’d share an old-school day of eats and adventures just like the weblog days of yore. Please needless to say What I Ate Wednesday posts are simply to share some new concepts and I completely perceive why they are often problematic or not a match for sure associates on the market. If it’s not your cup of tea, no worries in any respect, and I’ll see ya tomorrow with a brand new podcast episode!
In the meantime, join Spring Shape Up right here and begin testing the platform! We have over 200 associates signed up to date and I can’t wait to do that with all of you.
The women awoke early and had their Valentine’s baskets ready for them.
(Candy, beanie boos, a cute coronary heart sweater, a e book, some bathtub bombs and lip gloss. They had been pumped!)
When the women had been a lot youthful and I noticed reward baskets for each.single.vacation, it made me really feel confused. I used to be simply making an attempt to maintain them alive, clear, fed, and completely happy, so issues like Halloween baskets or Valentine’s baskets appeared unfathomable to place collectively. Instead, I simply tried to do different issues to have fun, like hearts on their door with issues that I really like about them. I nonetheless do that one at present and the women adore it – they hold the hearts up all yr.
Now that they’re a bit older and may, you already know, gown themselves, bathe themselves, and so forth., it’s a lot simpler to do enjoyable little additional issues after I really feel prefer it.
I chugged some AG1 earlier than heading out the door and ate a few eggs with sriracha and EBTB seasoning.
(Confession: I’ve solely tried AG1 a few occasions up to now and didn’t just like the style. The model requested me if I wished some to check out, so I figured I’d give it an actual attempt to presumably share with household and associates. Turns out: I adore it. I even began craving the style within the morning after consuming it persistently. I really like all the vitamins and I really feel nice after a few weeks of consuming it every morning on an empty abdomen. They provided a reduction code to share, so I’ll publish it as quickly as I've it!)
I dropped the women off in school with their Valentine’s containers and goodies for his or her associates, and went straight to the Pilot’s squadron.
On the best way, I picked up just a few dozen Valentines donuts to depart on the bar for everybody to get pleasure from, together with playing cards and roses for his or her family members.
After I dropped off the products, I headed someplace I by no means go anymore: the bottom health club!
I LOVE figuring out on base. They have all the pieces I may ever need, all the enjoyable purposeful gear, and the vibe at all times challenges me to work laborious. The bummer is that it’s a stable half-hour from our home (40 in site visitors), so it’s not reasonable to go throughout the week. Since I used to be already on base, I figured it was the proper time for a exercise subject journey and bought in an superior whole physique exercise.
Breakfast was ready for me within the automotive:
1/2 cup oats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
It set within the fridge in a single day so the oats had been mushy, and it was the proper post-workout gas.
I headed straight house to get to work for a few hours (answered emails, recorded a podcast episode, and designed the exercises for subsequent month’s Fit Team) after which took Maisey on a stroll.
Lunch was leftover Super Bowl chili, a chunk of sourdough with butter, and a easy chopped salad with Poshi asparagus and Primal Kitchen dressing.
I bought again to work (studied IHP, 1 1:1 consumer name, labored on my Friday Faves weblog publish, despatched some invoices), took a meditation/prayer break on my Go Mat (10 minutes)
after which had a lil afternoon deal with:
a decaf espresso with almond milk, collagen, and a See’s coronary heart truffle.
Quickly, I blitzed via the home (ran a loud of laundry, wiped counter tops, vacuumed, and switched out the dishes) and headed to a gathering at church. After the assembly, I picked up the crew, who had tons of valentines and goodies from faculty!
We headed house the place that they had after-school snacks, and we dropped Liv at dance with extra Valentines to change. P and I labored on her homework at house and bought prepared for just a little household date evening at Fleming’s.
Fleming’s is likely one of the eating places in Tucson that’s persistently very superb. We all love their meals, so I figured it could be the proper Valentine’s dinner.
My lil Valentines:
As at all times, all the pieces was unbelievable.
We began with the salad (the Pilot and I break up one), a shrimp cocktail, and P had the cheese plate from the children’ menu. Liv and the Pilot additionally bought cups of lobster bisque – I attempted a style and it was aaaaamazing. For our entrees, all of us bought filets, and shared asparagus, onion rings, and Fleming’s potatoes (cheese and calmly spicy). The Pilot stopped consuming desserts again in October so I shared this chocolate lava cake with Liv (P had ice cream and whipped cream). I had some sauvignon blanc and a Valentine’s cocktail that had gin, strawberry and lemon.
When we bought house, I’d like to say I crashed into mattress in a wine and steak induced slumber, however…not fairly. I folded and put away a load of laundry, set out the women’ garments for Wednesday, the Pilot completed homework with the women whereas I packed lunches,
and stayed up too late studying. 😉
I crashed out round 11 and was able to blitz once more this morning.
How was your Valentine’s Day? What was the BEST factor you ate yesterday? Any superior exercises?
