Hello and happy Friday!! We are laying low this weekend because my little one and husband are a bit under the weather. I am doing my best not to catch their colds, but my sweet daughter has been extra snuggly, and of course I can’t deny her.
I thought for my post today that it would be fun to share some toddler meals! I do my best to keep K’s food healthy (mostly) and enjoyable for her.
Other ideas: protein pancakes, lara bars, overnight oats, oatmeal, rotisserie chicken and rice, and salmon. K can be picky with meat, but I do offer it!
I would love to hear some of your little one’s favorites!
Hi, all! Happy Friday!! I hope you are well. My little one will be 2 in a couple weeks, which is crazy. Time feels like it goes so fast when it comes to her growing up. She has decided not to nap the last couple of days, but continues to be an excellent night time sleeper! We are starting potty training soon and I am kind of scared haha. Wish me luck! Other than that, I have been longing for warmer weather. I can’t wait until K and I can spend our days outside. I miss jogging with her and that wonderful sunshine! I know it will be here soon enough!
Anyway, moving on to the point of this post. I have continued my at-home workouts, and do my best to stay motivated. Yesterday was a cardio day and I really enjoyed my workout, so I want to share it!
I was pretty sweaty by the end of that workout! I will definitely do it again. *Please note that I only do what works for me and my body when it comes to working out.
Hello, and happy Friday!! It has been a long time since I have posted. I have been so focused on keeping up with my almost 2 year old and housework that I am consumed most of the time. My little one is always busy, and I am trying to navigate having a full blown toddler. She is a ton of fun and makes me laugh constantly! She is behind in speech, which I often worry about. We have an appointment the day after her birthday, and I am looking forward to figuring out the next step in helping her. Other than that, she is still in gymnastics and is very brave! I am so proud of her. We get to have play dates with gym friends, staying as covid safe as possible. We often spend time with my mom, which has been a lifesaver this winter!
As far as fitness goes, I have been continuing my at-home workouts. I got some new bands and love them! They don’t slip off of my legs constantly, which is awesome. I have been utilizing YouTube to find full body band workouts! I am so sore afterwards. On cardio days, I do the elliptical, use my punching bag, run sprints, jumps and abs. I have to mix things up to keep from getting bored! Yesterday was chilly, but sunny, and I was able to run outside for the first time in a while!
We have been enjoying some good food lately! We always try to eat pretty healthy, well me more than my husband haha. On New Year’s Eve, my niece came over and we made such a yummy dinner! Here are just a few pictures from lately…
Hopefully I can catch up on all of your posts soon!
Hello and happy Friday, all! December in our new home has been beyond wonderful. My husband is a master organizer, and we are completely unpacked and settling quickly. We still need curtains, and we also need to hang a few things, but overall everything looks great. I feel blessed beyond belief!
Other than unpacking, we have tried to keep life fun and as normal as possible despite these crazy times.
FUN WITH A TODDLER:
*Santa (masked of course) at gymnastics
*Salt dough ornament making and painting
*Cookie making and gingerbread man decorating
*Indoor snow play-we added different food coloring to a bucket of snow
*PJ’s and snuggles
FOOD, FRIENDS, AND FAMILY
I am still staying away from big groups, but I have seen some friends and it does a wonderful thing for my soul. My best friend came over last weekend and we went to dinner at Northstar Cafe.
We have been spending a lot of time with my mom and it has been wonderful. My daughter loves time with her grandma and I get a much needed break with her around. She gets us food and groceries often. We are so lucky to have her! She passes a healthy, delicious smoothie place on the way to our house called Power Fuel Nutrition and has been bringing me different ones to try. They are fantastic!
We had family Christmas pictures taken at our home this year and I love them! Our Christmas card is my favorite one yet.
I am trying to build up my home gym as much as possible. I have a lot of space and have been utilizing it! I need to add some heavier weights and a yoga mat, but am enjoying what I have for now. I love using my loop bands and punching bag to get some strength training in.
*My husband and I just finished watching Schitts Creek. We LOVED it so much! Such a lighthearted and fun show to watch.
*I am re-watching Glee on Netflix. I loved it during its prime and it is fun to watch again.
*I am reading the Harry Potter series over. It has been fun to read as an adult.
*I have been watching a Facebook video series called Murder and Makeup. It is so cool!
*I am still enjoying my true crime podcasts!
That’s about everything for this post! I look forward to catching up with all of you.
Hello and happy Friday!! Did the time change throw anyone else off? The whole past week has been rough on me and my daughter’s sleep. My husband seemed unfazed though! I have been waking up incredibly early, and falling asleep early as well. I finally feel like my body has regulated. Last night I fell asleep at 8 and didn’t wake up until 6 this morning. I missed a class that I teach unfortunately, but my body needed it!
Moving on, let’s talk food. Starting off, I have to share my newest obsession. Weeks ago, I was at Sam’s Club and had a sample of these dried mushrooms. I didn’t know I would like them, but OH MY GOSH they are amazing!!!! I can’t stop eating them!
Moving on to some dinners…
Now onto baking and breakfast…
Such a great week of eating!! I hope you enjoyed this lighthearted food post. Sending hugs to you all!!
