Last night, we hit up Whole Foods again to pick up a few more goodies, mostly fresh fruit and things from the deli.
There are two Whole Foods about the same distance from me, but only one of them carries fresh cut-up mango slices. Since we were at different Whole Foods than we were on Friday, I made sure to buy some mango.
They were giving out samples of the best four berry pie that I have ever tasted. (Mom, do you like four berry pie? Because your birthday is coming up and I need an excuse to buy a whole one). I didn’t get a picture because I ate my sample so fast. They were also giving out samples of crab, which was delicious.
I used more chia seeds in today’s breakfast. I mixed up some overnight oats which included:
- 1/2 cup Quaker oats
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/8 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 2 pieces of Hershey’s chocolate, broken up into small pieces
This oatmeal didn’t have any yogurt like I usually include, and the chia seeds make it super thick, so I had to add a splash of almond milk in the morning. It tastes more like a thick cookie dough.
It might not look very appetizing, but the chocolate really adds a nice sweetness to it.
- Three-legged race
Okay, not really. I didn’t go to the gym this morning because Danny and I volunteered at Jacob’s last ever Field Day at his school. Our activity was the three-legged race.
The kids had such a fun time doing the three-legged race. It worked out that Jaden was there because whenever a kid didn’t have a partner, we just threw Jaden in there.
When we didn’t have any kids waiting in line, Danny and I made sure to practice in case we have a surprise three-legged race coming up anytime in the future.
I packed some mango and cherries to eat while we were at Jacob’s school.
I plan on trying to get to the gym later this afternoon. Sometimes it’s hard to motivate myself if I don’t go first thing in the morning. I mean, I’m already showered, dressed, and have make-up on. It would be so much easy to just stay home… I’ll probably still end up going though. I’m motivated enough because there’s only four more days until my final weigh-in.
Speaking of weigh-ins, I weighed myself on Saturday morning, and I weighed three pounds less than I did at my weigh-in Thursday night. Geesh, either me or the scale was having a bad day. I’m not quite sure what is up, but I hope it stays like that for my final weigh-in.
Questions of the day:
- Have you ever done a three-legged race?
- Do you like working out in the am or pm? Do you ever workout in the middle of the afternoon?
- Do you like mango?
