I think I got like 7 hours of sleep last night and feel like a gem. After feeding Harry the Zombie this AM I did a nice 20 minute workout then made one of my fave breakfasts.
Here’s a snap of my workout in case you’re looking for a fun at home option:
EMOM (Every Min on the Min) for 8 minutes: 8-10 Burpees (leave at least 20 sec of rest)
Then…Alternating EMOM for 12 minutes (hit each movement 4 times):
10 Alternating Snatches
15 situps (did these very slow)
Cool down with stretching and coffee. You’re welcome.
Now, back to breakfast. You see, lately I feel like my sugar intake has sky-rocketed. I mean I’m not mad about it but I had been having sweet breakfasts (french toast, oatmeal with brown sugar) daily and then lots of snacks. I figured it was time for something savory. I popped 2 slices of bread in the toaster, made 2 fried eggs, and compiled some avocado toast with ham and a little bit of cheese because I love cheese (Ruthie always knows when I open the cheese up and politely asks for some…I can’t resist her). YUM. Hoping this keeps me full til at least 11 am 🙂
Also, I just finished my coffee so I’m guessing I’ll have to #2 v soon. HEHE.
Yesterday morning I had to cook for the first time since bringing Hare Bear home. Yes, I haven’t made a meal (besides cooking some spaghetti noodles) for 5 weeks. Sam and I have the best family/friends and people have been bringing us meals.
I clearly wanted something easy so I searched Pinterest for a crock pot chicken recipe and came across this!
Yes, it looks like barf in the crock but was so easy and cheap! My two faves when it comes to cooking. I probably spent $15 total on all the ingredients and it tastes amazing.
I served it up with a big ole salad because veggies and some mini Pillsbury croissants because they are so buttery and delicious and a girl needs a buttery treat once in a while. Highly recommend this dish if you’re trying to decide what to make this weekend. I could drink the liquid right out of the bowl (and might have).
So, it’s Halloween. I’m not the biggest Halloween fan (except I love the candy and pumpkins) and don’t usually dress up now that I’m almost 30. I did buy Harry the cutest Harry potter outfit but it’s gigantic on him so he will just wear his pumpkin onesie and pumpkin hat. Sam and I will hand out candy tonight and I’m hoping to watch some sort of Halloween movie (or maybe just Hallmark XMAS because we only get like 2 months to enjoy).
So, Happy Halloween friends. I hope you get lots of treats and few tricks!
The rest of this week is kind of busy. I’m getting my hairs did tomorrow and can’t wait. I think getting my hair colored is one of my fave things. Yay. Harry and I have a bunch of errands to run and then Ruthie and I will probably go for some walks/runs. So fun.
Have a great mid-week day and we shall catch up soon.
-Hale, Harry, and Ruth
PS My pits are so sweaty. Help.
