As I’m sure everyone assumed, I’ve been a little distracted lately with the homecoming of my hubby. So I’m going to do a quick recap cause I’m so tired my eyes are burning!
Busy day, tried to keep myself distracted so the day would go by faster. Went to spin in the morning, had my usual pre workout snack (1/2 banana and 1 tsp PB)
Post workout: ran out of cottage cheese, so I had scrambled egg with whites and toast
Came home and got ready to go to a movie with my parents. We saw One for the Money with Katherine Heigl, I wasn’t expecting it to be that great, but it was actually really entertaining. Had a couple handfuls of popcorn in the movie.
Lunch: chicken gyro
Picked up Cole from school a little early cause he had belt testing at Taekwondo. He is now an orange belt!
Went to Cafe Rio…again…with Heidi and Adam and family after. Cole and I shared a steak salad…again!
Woke up pretty early with excitement and anticipation for the day.
Breakfast: Nature’s Path GF waffle w/PB
We got ready and headed down to Salt Lake around 9am cause I had to stop and get my car cleaned before we picked up Keller. Then we headed to the airport. This was Cole for about 15 minutes before Daddy arrived:
just staring at everyone coming down looking for Daddy.
He would not let Daddy put him down until we got to the car and even then it was a struggle. This is what we call a stage 5 CLINGER! 😉
We headed out to do some errands and then grabbed lunch at Cheesecake Factory. I had the Skinnylicious mexican chicken wraps, a couple bites of Cole’s mac and cheese…that is seriously like the best mac and cheese in the world…and some french fries.
We came home so Keller could take a shower and not smell like the Middle East and just hung out with my Dad and sister Michelle. Cole’s cousins were over so he was distracted playing with them.
Snack: Great Harvest bran muffin (started with half, ended up eating the whole thing)
At night we went to Maxwell’s for dinner…so that means fries, pizza, and salad. Luckily everyone was full by the end and we didn’t end of having our usual dessert the cookizza with ice cream that would have really set me over my limits for the day (like I wasn’t already there!).
Woke up starving so I had a slice of cinnamon toast before making Keller his requested protein pancake for breakfast.
Apparently 2 protein pancakes were not enough to satisfy Keller cause he moved on to leftover pizza at 9:30 in the morning!
Went to church. Snacked on half a protein bar and some Trader Joe’s nuts and berries.
Came home and had leftovers for lunch. It was like a leftover smorgasbord, mac and cheese, pizza, bran muffins, pretty much all the crap we ate the day before resurrected to eat again. I also enjoyed one of my treats from Keller…a Coke Light from Dubai…so yummy!!
I was in charge of dinner and in honor of Keller’s homecoming made his favorite…steak…we also had salad, potatoes, and green beans with snap peas.
Oh and then some WW oatmeal cookies for dessert.
I was so full by the end of Sunday it hurt. It felt like Christmas…this is not a holiday, this is not a holiday, this is not a holiday!
Took Cole to school and then headed to the gym. Keller got a temporary membership so we could workout at the same time. I went to spin, he went to do whatever it is he does. My usual pre and post workout foods.
Keller told me a couple weeks ago that I couldn’t go see any new movies so that we could see them together when he got back. So we picked Man on a Ledge and went with mom and dad to see it. Grabbed Great Harvest sandwiches on the way and ate them in the theater. I shared my usual veggie sandwich with my mom.
We picked up Cole from school after the movie and headed home. I did some yoga cause my back was killing me and I just felt really uncomfortable. I’m not sure if it’s because I feel like I’m eating constantly since you know who got home, or if it’s just a finally experience pregnancy issues, but I have been super uncomfortable the last couple days.
Dinner: Mom made a recipe from my Real Simple magazine, a healthy alternative to chicken pot pie…I thought it was good, she put lots of veggies in it and I didn’t have to cook it so it was great!
The clinger work up at 6:30am again (he’s been doing this ever since Daddy got home, it’s killing me!). We turned on the movie Real Steel and watched it while eating cereal for breakfast. I started to get ready to go do some intervals on the treadmill when I heard my mom start it up before I got there. So instead, we all got ready and headed to the gym. I warmed up with a 10min jog on the treadmill and then Keller put me through a little circuit pyramid style workout, which means you do 10 reps, then 9, then 8, 7, etc all the way down to 1:
incline bench press, kettle bell sumo squats with a high pull, regular squats with an overhead press…then we did “sevens” 7 sets of: 7 reps bicep curl halfway up from bottom, then 7 halfway down from top, then 7 full curls. Loved it! Great workout!
Got ready and headed down to Salt Lake for my feta echocardiogram. Everything looks great! We headed over to the mall after the Dr. appt to take some things back and grabbed lunch at one of my favorite restaurants Trio.
Lunch: flatbread with roasted tomatoes and goat cheese, salad, 1/2 veggie panini
I told Keller to smile and this is what he gave me.
Took the boys to Taekwondo and then headed over to Heidi and Adam’s. It was Adam’s birthday so no Tuesdays with Heidi again today. Adam requested his favorite chicken coconut curry with a Ding Dong cake for dessert. It was all delicious. I ate a little too many pita chips and hummus before dinner though!
Once again so full…haven’t counted points for 2 days, I blame Keller, even though I totally know it’s all my fault! It’s ok, back on track tomorrow. At least I still did my workouts!
