First of all, just a note to say that I'd forgotten how summertime is kind of....chaotic. It is very nice to have the boys home. I like seeing them more. But, even though they are older and things are much, (MUCH) easier now, having them home still throws me off a bit. Especially at first… Continue reading Summer w/ kids home + a recipe I like
Okay! Will try to blab on less today and just share some stats. I started tracking on Monday. I'll try to list the approximate times I ate, too, if I can remember. Reminder- P= protein, F= fat, C= carbohydrates. My daily "goals" were: P 127, F 50, C 134, ~1,500 calories Monday Daily Totals:Calories: 1,477119P/… Continue reading My meals of the week (with macros)
1. Hunger cues I've noticed something interesting whenever we travel. I typically always "lose a little weight". (Not a lot or anything, but I tend to feel just a little trimmer and slimmer than usual when we get home. Which always surprises me, because I do not watch what I eat at all when we… Continue reading Hunger cues/ constant eating! And dinner
Feeling kind of tired/ blah this morning. I stayed up until 11 pm working on volunteer related preparations for yet another home hosted swim meet coming up the weekend of February 18-20. It's a big one, too- Regionals. Typically Regionals are not hosted by our team (we always just attend at a different pool) but… Continue reading Tired, the week, etc.
I still haven't had time to finalize my 22 for 2022 list, which I started on New Year's Eve. In a way I'm okay with it, because I feel like I'm sort of having a dry run/ trial week this week. I've been floating some of the ideas in my head, but not feeling any… Continue reading Vegetables
Something I'm loving eating this week: Ivan's pico de gallo! He made nachos on Sunday night, and he always makes a big bowl of pico de gallo to top the nachos with. We had leftovers, so I have repurposed the pico de gallo multiple times now. 1st: As a salad topper! Chicken, apple, black pepper,… Continue reading Whatever Wednesday
I haven't done one of these in a long time! Feeling it today, though. 🙂 1- It is fall. Being the fall loving person that I am, I know it's odd I haven't addressed this fact yet on the blog. We are actually having a snap of cooler (but in a lovely, beautiful way, not… Continue reading Friday 5: fall books, XC, meals, WFH & workouts!
I'm happy to report that Tuesday, September 14, was exponentially better than Tuesday, September 7. 🙂 It was still our "busiest" day of the week....Ethan had piano right after school AND soccer later. Asher had cross country right after school AND swim later. I have to drive to/ from piano, and do CC pick up.… Continue reading A better Tuesday
I slept like total garbage last night. Sort of. I slept really great from 10 pm until 2 am, and then woke up. After laying there awake until ~4:20, I finally got up. In case you are wondering what time the birds wake up in my area (and start chirping), it is precisely 4:02 a.m.… Continue reading This and that
One of my favorite things about working from home is, of course, the FLEXIBILITY. We badly needed groceries for a few days, but with soccer all weekend, it just never happened. (In large part just because no one actually wanted to go get groceries.) Come Monday night, when I thought I would run over to… Continue reading The joy of a midweek, morning grocery run
