Life is back to normal today. Danny, my brother, and sister-in-law all went back to work today, and I’m back to watching my niece. I like vacations as much as the next person, but I also like when life returns back to normal and, I can follow my normal schedule.
Before I headed to the gym this morning, I ate half a grapefruit. I’m not normally too hungry right when I wake up, so I figured that I’d try the half a grapefruit thing before I go to the gym and then have a regular breakfast when I get home.
Obviously, I can’t work a grapefruit because I cut it in half the wrong way and had to actually peel it instead of eating the sections with a spoons. Oh well, I guess I’ll know for next time.
I planned on sprinkling Truvia on top of the grapefruit but it was really sweet and I didn’t need to. The white membrane part is bitter-tasting, but the actual fruit is sweet.
Just a normal Monday BodyPump workout, nothing special. But I did sign up for the Biggest Loser Challenge at my gym before I left today. Tomorrow is the orientation night, so I figured I’d see if the challenge was full yet, and if it wasn’t, I’d join. Well, it wasn’t full, and I’m officially signed up. The challenge meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays with monthly weigh-ins.
After BodyPump, I came home and ate two pieces of toast and cherries. I went to get the peanut butter while my toast was cooking (toasting?), and I couldn’t find it anywhere. Then I remembered that I ate all the peanut butter. Damn. Luckily, I dug half a package of almond butter out of the cabinet so my toast didn’t have to go to waste.
After breakfast #2, I went to pick up McCutie Baby Niece Face, and we ran a few errands.
One of them included stopping at Michael’s craft store for some supplies for a special secret project that I’m working on for my sister-in-law’s baby shower on Sunday. I am so excited to be an aunt again!
My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are going old school and not finding out the sex of the baby. That takes a lot of willpower. I told the doctor that as soon as he found out the sex of my baby, I wanted to know. I was just so excited to paint the nursery and shop for cute clothes. Plus, I figure whether you find out the sex of the baby during the ultrasound or during the birth, it’s still a surprise, you’re just getting surprised a little bit sooner with the ultrasound.
Questions of the day:
- Do you eat breakfast first thing in the morning?
- If you have kids, did you find out the sex?
- Baby shower or wedding shower? I love baby showers. I don’t care about seeing pots, pans, and platters, but I love seeing cute baby stuff!
