Every day is different here but this is yesterday. Tuesdays are one of the days my daughter has preschool. Wednesday and Fridays we’re all home – hubs works from home and L and I get to the library, the playground, go swimming at the gym or run errands.
I set my alarm yesterday to get my 10 miles in before hubs left for work (first double digit week day run of this cycle). So I was out the door around 6:30 (thankfully my 3 yo alarm is sleeping in these days!) and was back by 8am. I’ve been doing some fasted runs lately (more on that soon!) So no fuel, and I felt fine.
The 8 to 9 o’clock hour is a dash of breakfast, lunch packing, a 3 minute shower, and getting out the door for preschool drop off.
Packed lunch for L: tortilla with carrot-sunflower butter spread, applesauce and peas;
My bfast: leftover eggs and hashbrowns from daddy and L’s breakfast + a half banana with more carrot-sunflower spread
I spent my free morning working- prepping for health coach clients, checking progress on my running coach clients, a bit of blogging and blog-reading, and catching up with emails.
PS- Can I brag on my health clients for a second? I had three sessions last night and each one is making such great progress on their goals: one lost 6 pounds and several inches, the second is doing less stress eating and connecting how foods make her feel, and the third has made some huge mental shifts in her body image and is gaining weight back to regulate her cycles. I feel so lucky to love what I do and I am so proud of these women for their hard work!
In the sprouted grain wrap: tuna, shredded carrot, spring mix, sliced olives and feta, splash of oil and vinegar
Morning hours fly by when L is in school! There is never enough time to do it all. But I’ve learned to be happy with my stopping point and shift back into mom mode.
I headed out to get her forgetting I was wearing my husband’s old Crocs around the house that are way too big… oops!
I picked her up and we headed home to read stories and have quiet time. She naps a few times a week. But either way she still needs some downtime and it gives me a chance to clean up the kitchen, unpack her backpack and mix up chia pudding for later.
Yesterday she only lasted 45 minutes (no nap) so we decided it was snack time:
My snack: Mock nutella (sunflower seed butter mixed with chocolate hemp protein powder) on a rice cake; apples
L’s snack: Smoothie with her choice of ingredients (pumpkin, blueberries, banana and plain full fat yogurt), topped with a few O’s
With the cooler mornings, we’ve both been waking up cold and I suggested we head to Target to find slippers for each of us. She agreed, so we headed out and also found a birthday gift for an upcoming party, some office supplies, stickers and an extra bathroom rug, of course. How does that always happen?
We were both hungry and headed home for dinner. Daddy was working late so we heated up some leftovers: black beans for me (two bowls) and grilled cheese with tomato soup for L. We rounded it out with some veggies, hummus and popcorn.
And I had chia pudding for “dessert”…yum!
It was soon time to start stories for bed. She was asleep by 7pm (the benefit of skipping a nap!)
After she was down, I finished cleaning up the kitchen, wrapped up some work I had left unfinished earlier and caught up with hubs when he got home. I try hard to be in bed by 10:30 pm. And that’s a wrap!
Does every day look the same for you, or is there variance? Have you tried chia pudding?
