Before we get going today, I have to wish my Grandma Betty a happy 92nd birthday!
She’s spunky, strong-willed and has a fabulously positive attitude towards life. I want to be just like her when I grow up. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA BETTY!
…now WIAW compliments of wonderful Jenn!
I actually forgot to snap a picture of my Van’s protein waffle, peanut butter and honey, but it looked something like this:
I’ve been squeezing a wog in usually between breakfast and Hailey’s first nap (9am), but yesterday I was running a bit behind so it was a shorter walk instead.
I’ve also been listening to Audiobooks, which is making my wogs FLY by. I just finished The Fountainhead and I’m underselling it by saying it’s my favorite book I’ve ever read. Now, I’m moving on to Atlas Shrugged. I guess I missed out on a few of these on my first trip through the required reading list in high school.
Many people have asked how I prep meals with a 10 month old. My answer: mom’s best friend.
I’m so serious. Koda is a fabulous babysitter and performs wonders on post-munchkin meal messes. Love that dog.
She served as a distraction while I made lunch. This zucchini, basil and barley salad is quickly becoming a new favorite. Tastes like summer.
Then there was a pre-yoga snack:
The Fage 2% cherry yogurt tastes just like dessert when mixed with LOVE Grown Granola. In fact, I felt like I was enjoying a piece of my mom’s famous cherry cheese junk (don’t judge it by it’s name- it’s what made my dad fall in love with my mom because it’s that good ).
Then, we yoga’d.
It brings color to my skin. Namaste.
Back home I enjoyed the back porch… and a martini.
Why is it that sipping on a martini makes me feel so much more like an alcoholic than sipping on a beer or glass of wine? All are considered one drink, right? Oh well, YOLO.
Dinner was a buffalo chicken salad, which would have held me over just fine if not for the USA gymnasts. Anyone else get sucked into the Olympics? We stayed up until midnight, which is unheard for us on a school night, to watch the girls and the swim men take GOLD. #USA!
…while I watched their ripped bodies perform incredible athletic feats, I snacked on dark chocolate chips.
Oh well, YOLO.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
