I’m trying to get back to business as usual around here, which of course means spending some time in the kitchen yesterday.
I brought back an old favorite, frozen Greek yogurt drops. They are as simple as they sound. Spoon Greek yogurt (I used full fat) into a ziplock bag, snip the end and pipe little dots onto wax paper. Freeze and watch your baby go crazy! Kaitlyn loves them. Reader Cornelle had a great suggestion of getting plain yogurt and mixing it with fruit puree. I love this idea because it would avoid the added sugar that most (all?) flavored yogurts have.
I also broke a sweat yesterday and am feeling it this morning.
I’ve mentioned that I’ve been going to Burn Bootcamp, right? I decided to join when I realized I just wasn’t pushing myself at the gym. I really liked the idea of having the workout planned for me and being in and out in 45 minutes. I can do that, I thought! But BBC has taught me something about myself…
Hi, my name is Brittany and I’m an angry exerciser.
Anger. That’s a word I don’t use very often because it’s an emotion I don’t regularly feel, but I guess I didn’t realize how tough these workouts would be!
The funny thing is that I LOVE it. I love that it’s a switched up workout every time, I love that I can feel my muscles fatigue, I love that I can feel myself getting stronger… with all that love, you’d think I’d be smiling the whole way through. Instead, I find myself really angry mid-workout and even muttering under my breath like a crazy person. How weird is that? Maybe that’s how my body musters strength?
It always passes and by the end, I’m on cloud nine, thrilled with the exhaustion from pushing myself.
I just think it’s such a funny phenomenon and had to see if anyone else every felt the same?
Back to food. More specifically, crockpot salsa chicken.
Certainly one of the most simple “recipes” out there (4 chicken breasts, 2 cups-ish of salsa, then set on low for 6 hours. Shred) and we absolutely love it. Last night we used it in a version of layered fiesta bowl but subbed guac for sliced avocado and really took it to another level of YUM.
And just to keep the theme of randomness going, I love this idea for preschool Valentines…
Oh Pinterest, are you making me a better mom or a more insane one as I try to keep up?
Ok, all over the place today with today’s post, huh? It’s a reflection of my mind… or lack of sleep. Kaitlyn’s other bottom tooth is trying to make an appearance and prednisone makes Koda have to potty at 4am. Her tail is wagging like crazy though, so I’m nothing but smiles as I’m off to grab a cup of coffee.
Have a great day!!
Are you an angry exerciser?
What’s your favorite simple “recipe”?
