Some day just fly by and yesterday was one of those days. It started with the 3 ring circus that was my morning. By the time I fed Hailey, fed Koda, let Koda out, got myself dressed, cleaned up some spit up (overfed her- oops!), changed my outfit, changed a diaper, let Koda out again and got everything ready to go, I realized I hadn’t eaten breakfast yet, so I grabbed a banana and a spoonful of Wild Squirrel pretzel pizazz peanut butter with a decaf coffee and ran out the door… after snapping a picture, of course.
It was worth it. I made it to pilates- SCORE.
After class I came home in need of a snack and grabbed a yogurt smoothie out of the fridge. The nice people at DAHlicious Lassi sent me some samples of their Indian style yogurt drink to try and post work out was the perfect opportunity.
Strawberry was the first one I grabbed and I loved its smooth texture and natural strawberry taste. The list of ingredients is short and sweet- milk, strawberries, cane juice and vegetable fiber. Yum!
After taking the edge off of my hunger I could relax and make myself a salad.
Spinach, romaine, red onions, goat cheese, avocado and parsley with Newman’ Own Light Balsamic. I gobbled this down, then Hailey and I were off to a play date. My new friend, Jodi, offered me some ginger peach tea and a blueberry oatmeal muffin. How could I say no?!
FYI, I totally snapped this picture discretely from my iPhone. I wasn’t quite ready to let her know I was a crazy person and take pictures of my food… and every other moment of my life.
From there, we went straight to the pediatrician for Hailey’s 4 month appointment. She had to get shots, which I hate, but I love hearing her measurements!
I realized by the time we left and dropped off books at the library that I was HUNGRY. I ordered mixed veggies and brown rice from Fusion Bowl and after picking it up, I couldn’t wait to get home so I parked and snagged a few bites in the car.
I finished up all the veggies and 1/2 the box of rice when I got home… then I got busy playing with Hailey and taking care of other important tasks (like finding out why Chuck and Blair aren’t together… stupid car wreck ruined everything!) which turned into bath and bedtime and then I realized I hadn’t eaten dinner. Since Hubbs was working late, I had totally forgotten to make myself dinner, so I nuked a sweet potato and topped it with Smart Balance, cinnamon and sugar.
Though it was tasty, I was glad when Hubbs arrived home around 9:30 with sushi rolls in hand.
We split a yellow fin roll and a California roll before calling it a night… at 9:45. Because we’re wild like that.
How do you try and stay healthy when your day gets busy?
I always keep almonds on me in case of emergencies. I also keep packs of peanut butter, though I don’t know why. I have nothing to put it on I guess I’d just squeeze it into my mouth? Sigh… I’m strange.
