baby Dego wakes up so happy! his mood is crazy contagious and always reminds me of this quote:
‘Children are happy because they don’t have a file in their minds called, ‘Everything That Could Go Wrong.’
well i do and it’s FULL and needs to be deleted. lol.
he started clapping (or trying to) a few days ago and has not stopped since.
well this happens every weekend, right on schedule.
decisions, decisions! i start craving those weekend foods… pizza, french fries, subway cookies, etc. i guess that’s where my passion for making healthier versions of classic comfort foods came from though. i want to satisfy that craving (more often) without sacrificing my health or gym progress. fair enough!? i’m so glad we have tons of healthier alternatives to work with and swap out these days! anyway, i have been having some stiffness in my neck, so i hit the gym for cardio only and stretching for my saturday workout. will be taking it easy so i can hit it hard again on tuesday for my HIIT class.
i stopped by Sprouts after the gym and picked up some protein: 99% lean ground chicken breast and Applegate organic chicken and apple sausage for breakfast next week. i cracked open the sausage as soon as i got home though and had a filling post-workout meal of whole wheat toast, egg white/veggie/sausage scramble, and kiwi (low sugar ketchup & cheddar almond cheese on the side). delish!!!!
oh, i got some pears too! they were next in line to try for Dego’s homemade baby food. i just diced up 1 anjou pear, threw it in a small sauce pan with 2 tbsp water and 1/2 tsp cinnamon, covered it, and cooked it on med-low until tender. after less than 10 min, i poured it all into my Ninja and pureed the mixture until it was super smooth. pears = thumbs up!
then, we turned UP!!!!
with letter puzzles on the floor,
Food Network mag, and i killed the last of that coconut Arctic Zero pint with some fat-free cool whip and sprinkles on top. party, party! hope you had a relaxing saturday yourself!! after your workout of course 😉
Q: have you tried the Applegate Turkey or Good Morning bacon yet!?
what’s your fave Applegate product?
