last night i said i was going to get up at the crack of dawn this morning and not just get my treadmill interval workout in, but to pop up on my 5:30am class to say hi while i was at it! i made me some hot coffee and headed out, Beats and ipod in tow.
i kinda forgot to factor in feeding my newborn before leaving though so i arrived way after class started. it was SO good to see old and new faces all across the studio when i peeked my head in the door! i caught up with some of my regulars after class finished and they only made me more anxious to put that mic on again.
cardio killaaaaa. i was hoping to be cleared to lift this week, but my OB’s schedule is jam packed!!! huge bummer. still crossing my fingers to be worked in somehow. else i’ll just wait ’til next week.
Chiso woke up and requested pancakes, so he got’em. i made him a stack of my WW Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Birthday Cakes complete with dolphin sprinkles and he almost finished the stack by himself! i gladly killed the rest. remember, you can also sub blueberries for the chocolate chips.
who’s 1 month today? that guy! i asked Sonny does 4 weeks make it one month, or will July 17th make it one month… idk and too lazy to Google. close enough. also up until today, smiles from Dego were only reserved for Chiso. i finally got mine :)
our God is an awesome God. i make an effort to praise Him for all things, both great and especially small. after receiving and reviewing Dego’s newborn screening results in the mail a few days ago i began to thank Him repeatedly. i was instantly reminded of the time in my life when my thoughts consumed me and convinced me that i was unable to bear any children, ever. God has blessed us with healthy baby boy #2, and for that we give Him all the glory.
this is so funny because i actually remember doing this to my mom. putting my face on the floor to see her feet while calling her name over and over again and everything. well it’s payback time! who am i kidding… once Chiso doesn’t give a flying hoot about my whereabouts i’m gonna have a mommy moment…
grilled sirloin steak and taters for dinner tonight. we’ve been outta sweet taters and they are exactly what i need to keep me feeling fuller longer between meals. the steak was marinated in some Annie’s balsamic vinaigrette, pinch of sea salt and black pepper before i tossed it in my grill pan. that delicious sauce is just Grey Poupon mild and creamy mustard (which is calorie free, sugar free, and fat free) sauteed with white mushrooms. it’s bananas!
Q: how do you like your steak cooked?
blood = no bueno. can’t do it. well done, please.
