warm water w/slice of lemon *I cut up a lemon or two, and put in the freezer, each morning I make warm water, and add a slice of frozen lemon, then squeeze it out for the juice.*

3 hard boiled eggs w/hot sauce
1 big spoon of organic peanut butter (just nuts & salt)

Last night for din din, I made the kids grilled cheese potato buns (in a waffle maker) which come out so lovely & delicious, and then meatballs in organic marinara (from Aldi). They ate it up. I also started de-thawing shrimp (which I was making for myself), but then we ended up taking a walk to visit my mom. When we got to her place, she had so many grapes out, and cheese, and crackers and salami. The kids and I had so many lovely, delicious, hard and juicy grapes and we loved them all. I also had a small glass of white wine in lots of ice, to celebrate her new home (which is walking distance of our home, yay!)
The actual miles walked was about 2, and I pushed the stroller half the time. It was awesome exercise and a great way to end a summer day. The weather is absolute perfection lately! By the time we got home, it was too late to eat shrimp, so I was happy and satisfied with just a glass of cold seltzer water, and the previous grapes and apple I had.
I started off the day yesterday with my 10 minute bike ride on my stationary bike, and ended it with a 2 mile walk. Fitting in this exercise while being a busy working mama & wife is no easy FEAT, but I’m going to look for more and more opportunities to fit in exercise anywhere and anytime I see it. When we look for opportunities to work out – we will find them. When we look for excuses to NOT work out – we will find them. It’s not going to be perfection each and every day, but I sense more positive days, then negative ahead.
I slept amazingly well, again!
Cheers to staying UBER motivated in all of our health & fitness goals. 1 day at a time.
