Monday (5/21), day 1 of my 90 days of P90X2. It’s hard, but I’m excited to do it. I like that since I can’t really go to a gym, I have a program laid out for me and I don’t have to think about what I’m going to do for my workout everyday. Cole had a Tball game and it was hilarious. At one point the entire team on the field was either laying down, sitting, spinning, or picking something. Pure entertainment!
Monday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), protein shake (3), protein pancake (6), apple, balance bar (5), leftover fish and chicken w/snap peas (4)
Workout: P90X2 Core and 30 min on my spin bike
Tuesday, hung out at the park and got a little sunburned. My sister Sherilynn came over for dinner and I made turkey primavera spaghetti. Basically it was ground turkey, 2 cans of diced tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and some onion. I cooked down the tomatoes to make it into a sauce and then added everything else. I also added fresh basil and let it simmer to soak up the flavors. It was super light, healthy, and delicious! (I had mine over spaghetti squash)
Tuesday FB’s: 1tsp PB and 1/2 banana (1), protein shake (3), FAGE yogurt (3), apple, carrots, Balance Bar (5), turkey primavera over spaghetti squash (6), apple w/1TBSP pb (3)

Thursday was a busy day. We met Heidi and her kids and Rebecca at the park for lunch. We packed out lunches and I tried to replicate my favorite Great Harvest veggie sandwich, except I added turkey. Rebecca showed us pictures of her trip to Thailand. It looks pretty amazing! After the park we went to my sisters house so I could watch the boys for the afternoon. By the time we finally got home and got everyone in bed I was exhausted. But I couldn’t go to bed until I blew up the balloons for Cole’s room. I started this tradition last year. I took pic once I finally got all of them in there, you can see Cole dead asleep in his bed.

Friday, Cole’s 5th birthday. Holy cow, time flies! Made him breakfast in bed and Skyped with daddy before school. On the way to school we picked up doughnuts to celebrate with his school friends. I came home and started getting things ready for his party. Got on a conference call with Lexy and Carman that lasted over 2 1/2 hours. My mom kept asking me questions and then I’d turn around with my ear phones in and she said You’re STILL on the phone! It was like a flashback to high school when I would get in trouble for being on the phone so long. We had a party for Cole at an indoor fun center in Salt Lake called Jungle Jim’s. It’s pretty much his favorite place and we were lucky enough to have some Groupons!! I got there early and set up with Avenger decorations and his big present, a new bike. He hadn’t had a present ALL day and all he wanted to do when he got there was open presents. Poor kid! Next year, a present in the morning. The day was so crazy that when I went back to look at what I ate I realized it wasn’t a ton which is why I was starving by the time the party came along and why I ate way too many cookies!
Friday FB’s: starting the day off bright and early with my friend Crystal Light Energy, toast w/PB (5), FAGE yogurt (3), tester cookie while making them for Cole’s party (5), apple, 2-mini Reese PB cups (3), piece of pizza (7), more cookie (10?), banana…felt super sick after eating clean all week and then eating junk
Workout: rest day
Saturday, ahhh I can breathe! Today was chill day. It was raining so it made it nice to just hang out at home. Sherilynn and I went to see Men In Black 3. I made Cole take a nap, he ended up sleeping for 4 hours!!! Someone was seriously pooped. The funniest thing was when Cole took the Cars camera he got for his bday and took a picture of his dinner because mommy always takes pictures of what she eats.
Saturday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), post-workout shake (3), turkey and veggie sandwich (8), Balance Bar (5), licorice (4), rotisserie chicken and green beans (4)

Monday, Happy Memorial Day! We spent the day at my sister’s for swimming and a BBQ. It was perfect weather and such a fun day! Both boys were asleep before we made it to the freeway. I was super proud of myself because even though I couldn’t get my workout in before we left in the morning, I came home and did it at 4:30 in the afternoon.
Monday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), apple, balance bar (5), 6 or so peanut M&M’s, 8-10 potato chips (both of these were grabbing as I walked from one place to another), steak w/veggies, fruit, crackers and hummus (10), red vines (8), protein shake (3), toast (2)

Tuesday, took my dad to the airport and stopped by the cemetery to look at all the flowers and flags that were placed for Memorial Day. As we were walking back to the car from my grandparents grave I told Cole that my grandpa was an FBI agent and he says “like Gibbs on NCIS?” I laughed so hard I almost pee’d my pants. My 5-year-old if obsessed with NCIS! We stopped by Heidi’s to borrow their Skuut bike to help Cole learn how to ride his new bike. Came home and got lunch, took a nap, and then attempted the bike lessons. The bike we bought him is too big So we have to go find another one. Cole requested breakfast for dinner again which made me happy because I’ve been dying for my protein pancake and green smoothie (the magic bullet is broken, but I managed to resurrect it for one more meal).
Tuesday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), shake (3), leftover chicken and pork w/veggies and tzatziki on the side (5), pretzels and Trader Joe’s nuts and berries (9), protein pancake and green smoothie (6)
