Do you have any snow where you are?
NYC was preparing for “the worst storm the city has ever seen!” We were supposed to get 1-2 feet of snow by yesterday afternoon, but the storm headed further east than expected and was a bit of a bust.
Still, we got a 5-6 inches and a snow day out of it!
Schools cancelled the night before, so it was nice going to bed knowing we had a guaranteed snow day ahead of us. We started our day early. The baby started making noise at 5:30 am… why?? (She made up for it with a 3 hour morning nap). However, she’s been having 1 hour play sessions in the middle of the night lately so I’ll take the early wake time over that.
After a banana with almond butter, I jumped on the treadmill for 7 easy miles and did a little shoveling. My legs were sore from Sunday’s hilly run. I can’t remember the last time I was sore from a run! The slow treadmill miles felt good to loosen my legs up.
Banana pancakes set the tone for our day, plus a little Greek yogurt, chia and more almond butter for me.
Our babysitter (and neighbor) came over to watch the girls for a few hours in the morning while I completed a virtual health coaching session and my husband prepped for his first day back to teaching.
We stopped for lunch together.
(Keeping it real. If I’m gonna eat the crusts and leftover sunflower seed butter/shredded carrot mixture from L’s sandwich, I bring it to the table and own it, rather than snacking at the counter. #mindfuleating #progress Plus dark chocolate!)
The afternoon was full of snow play, Frozen music and dancing (and dress up), and even a mini nap for me. Plus beets steaming in the pressure cooker.
L and I stopped for a snack…
And then a super easy dinner thanks to the freezer section at Trader Joe’s (plus a ham from WF).
And avocado for the six month old!
After the bath and bedtime routine, one more coaching session for me, a banana and a little time to blog that’s a wrap. And look at me, joining wiaw two weeks in a row!
Did you get to play in the snow?
