Good morning! It’s been a few days since I’ve checked in! The kids only have a few days of school left so we’ve been pretty busy. Their last day is next Wednesday and two days later we head to Wisconsin Dells!
Yesterday was Jaden’s field day at school.
Danny took the day off so he could volunteer for field day. Jaden was so excited you would have thought it was Christmas!
Danny and I have been doing really good with our healthy eating lately so we packed our own lunch to bring to field day. The school provides a McDonald’s lunch for all the kids and volunteers but there was no way we were eating that (Random Fact: I have never had a hamburger in my life).
After field day, Danny and I headed to the gym for a quick afternoon workout. Sometimes when we work out together, we set up boxes to do box jumps.
We start from the smallest and jump to the biggest box. I still cannot make that fourth box – and I have a nice bruise to prove it! I did make it up once but that was it. And of course, Danny just jumps on it with no problem.
The box jumps probably weren’t the best idea with my hip pain but we didn’t do it for too long.
The Fault in Our Stars
Last night, my in-laws watched the kids so we could see The Fault in our Stars. It was such a great movie. If you’re going to see it, bring a box of tissues…or two.
Date night (I obviously had no idea where the camera lens was in this picture!):
Movie theater food always sucks me in (hello Icees!) but Danny and I were good and brought our own Skinny Pop popcorn. Luckily, I have a huge purse which means I can fit a lot of Skinny Pop! It’s good to treat yourself once in awhile but I didn’t want to waste this weekend’s treat on movie theater food. I have been eyeing a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie at Whole Foods. It’s all about moderation
I thought I’d share some of the delicious food that I’ve been enjoying lately.
First, I have discovered the goodness that is frozen grapes!
How have I gone my whole life without eating frozen grapes?! So good!
For breakfast, I’ve been having plain Greek yogurt with fresh fruit.
Or protein pancakes made with oats, egg whites, and PB2.
For snacks, I stocked up on some Quest bars. My local GNC was out of the cookie dough and cookie and cream flavor <—- The two best flavors. I got some peanut butter flavors instead.
The kids both have games today and we might head to Whole Foods later. My sushi craving is slightly out of control. Tomorrow morning I am teaching the new BodyPump release for the first time. I have been practicing at home like crazy!
I’ll leave you with this quote that I have been loving lately:
It’s so true. Sometimes, I get frustrated because I can’t jump on that fourth box, or I can’t get the timing perfect in BodyPump, or I can’t run as fast as I want to. But if it all came easy, then it wouldn’t be a challenge. The challenge is what makes work harder to achieve your goals. The harder I work for something, the more accomplished I feel.
Have a wonderful weekend!
