I hope you had an exquisite Valentine’s Day, whether or not you have been celebrating together with your love, your Galentines, your kiddos, or your pet 🙂 For in the present day’s publish, I assumed I’d share an old-school day of eats and adventures just like the weblog days of yore. Please take into account that 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 pals 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!
Within the meantime, join Spring Form Up right here and begin testing the platform! We’ve over 200 pals signed up to date and I can’t wait to do that with all of you.
The ladies wakened early and had their Valentine’s baskets ready for them.
(Sweet, beanie boos, a cute coronary heart sweater, a guide, some tub bombs and lip gloss. They have been pumped!)
When the ladies have been a lot youthful and I noticed reward baskets for each.single.vacation, it made me really feel careworn. I used to be simply attempting to maintain them alive, clear, fed, and completely happy, so issues like Halloween baskets or Valentine’s baskets appeared unfathomable to place collectively. As a substitute, 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 in the present day and the ladies adore it – they maintain the hearts up all yr.
Now that they’re a bit older and might, you understand, costume themselves, bathe themselves, and so on., it’s a lot simpler to do enjoyable little further 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 instances previously 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 pals. Seems: I adore it. I even began craving the style within the morning after ingesting it constantly. I really like all the vitamins and I really feel nice after a few weeks of ingesting 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 ladies off in school with their Valentine’s bins and goodies for his or her pals, and went straight to the Pilot’s squadron.
On the best way, I picked up a number of dozen Valentines donuts to depart on the bar for everybody to take pleasure in, together with playing cards and roses for his or her family members.
After I dropped off the nice, I headed someplace I by no means go anymore: the bottom fitness center!
I LOVE figuring out on base. They’ve every part I might ever need, all the enjoyable practical gear, and the vibe all the time challenges me to work onerous. The bummer is that it’s a stable half-hour from our home (40 in site visitors), so it’s not life like to go in the course of the week. Since I used to be already on base, I figured it was the right time for a exercise discipline journey and received in an superior complete physique exercise.
Breakfast was ready for me within the automobile:
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 have been mushy, and it was the right post-workout gasoline.
I headed straight residence to get to work for a few hours (answered emails, recorded a podcast episode, and designed the exercises for subsequent month’s Match Staff) after which took Maisey on a stroll.
Lunch was leftover Tremendous Bowl chili, a bit of sourdough with butter, and a easy chopped salad with Poshi asparagus and Primal Kitchen dressing.
I received 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.
Rapidly, I blitzed by way of 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 residence the place that they had after-school snacks, and we dropped Liv at dance with extra Valentines to trade. P and I labored on her homework at residence and received prepared for just a little household date evening at Fleming’s.
Fleming’s is likely one of the eating places in Tucson that’s constantly very superb. All of us love their meals, so I figured it could be the right Valentine’s dinner.
My lil Valentines:
As all the time, every part 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 received cups of lobster bisque – I attempted a style and it was aaaaamazing. For our entrees, all of us received filets, and shared asparagus, onion rings, and Fleming’s potatoes (cheese and frivolously 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.
Once we received residence, 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 ladies’ garments for Wednesday, the Pilot completed homework with the ladies 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?
