On Sunday night Beck slept awesome but I did not. I woke up so mad at Andrew in the middle of the night for what he did to me in my dreams and it took forever for me to calm down. Luckily, once the morning came I had forgiven him for doing absolutely nothing wrong;).
Yesterday’s run was a really great one because I was able to run with EMILEE! It felt so good to be back together running again… We have some big plans for the future!
8 miles @ 8:03 average pace in my favorite canyon with the best water fountain ever.
You know it’s a cold morning if I decide to cover my ankles ha… Running tights are rarely long enough on me so my ankles are usually showing except for really cold days like yesterday when I wear tall socks.
Beck did his tummy time workout.
And just a few random things but Andrew has been bringing me home pebble ice from the hospital to use in my afternoon caffeine fix…. Now I don’t need a pebble ice machine.
Skye loves to be next to me when I am feeding Beck and she sure does pay close attention to everything happening…
I found her on the couch the other day feeding her baby and she even burped her afterwards ha.
And a picture of Beck and Andrew because I think Beck is looking more like Andrew lately.
I always like to see what other people do for their meal prep so I thought I would share mine again for the week! The thing that inspires me to do meal prep is going to Costco because I know that if I don’t use the items that we buy there right away in easy to eat meals, the food will not get eaten and I’ll find myself in the chic-fil-a drive-thru way too often:)
*We still can’t get enough of Mel’s Freezer Breakfast Burritos but this time I roasted the sweet potatoes first (I use sweet potatoes instead of the tater tots) instead of cooking them in the microwave and they turned out even better. I doubled the recipe because we go through these so fast because the kids eat them too. You cook all of the ingredients in a casserole and then put them together in the tortilla with cheese before freezing them.
*I also made a huge batch of a quinoa salad where I just added a bunch of goodness…
2 cups of quinoa (cooked in 3 cups of water)
Red, orange and yellow peppers
One can black beans
Roasted brussel sprouts and roasted sweet potatoes (maybe I’m the only one that loves these roasted veggies cold… I store this in the fridge)
1/2 of a red onion
Salt, lime juice and olive oil to taste!
When I eat it for a meal I’ll probably add some chicken or steak and feta cheese too.
And I cut up all of our veggies and made extra roasted veggies because it’s the only way we will actually eat them.
*At Costco we buy a few things that are always easy to eat quick including their Flautas, grilled chicken skewers, soups (their potato one is our favorite), street taco kits, rotisserie chicken and their tikka masala.
Brooke also wanted to join in on the meal/snack prepping with her favorite cookbook. Her buttermilk drop biscuits with honey butter were pure heaven!
Do you ever have dreams that make you upset at someone when you wake up? Do you remember your dreams? Do you have nightmares often?
What’s your favorite fast/quick easy meal lately?
Winter running… cover your ankles or keep them free;)?
Tell me about your run today… I love hearing and knowing how your training goes (and I think it inspires each other to do so:)!
