So excited to be home! So, so, so pumped to be back.
I was excited to sleep in my own bed, drink my own coffee, watch my own TV. Henry was pumped to play with his own toys. And the spatulas. Home is just… nice.
I was REALLY excited to get back to my healthy routine. In New Orleans, I totally fell off the ‘wagon.’ Too much alcohol, not enough veggies, crap baby sleep (and therefore crap adult sleep), absolutely zero exercise besides city walking. Fun while it lasted, but honestly… eating right, sleeping well, and moving my body regularly feels so much better. It’s worth spending the energy on healthy living. What you get out of it is so much greater than what you put in.
On that note… I spent the morning doing a ton of food prep. I figured it would be easier to get back on track if we had healthy foods right at our finger tips. Plus, I’m going away on Friday for the race, and it’s nice for Kristien if he has meals ready to eat when he’s the solo parent.
What do you guys usually make when you do food prep? I roasted some potatoes, boiled a ton of quinoa, steamed some kale, fried an onion, cut some fruit, and stir-fried tempeh. It should last us a while!
Lunch included bits of everything.
I’m hoping this gets us back on track and feeling great in just a few meals. And I swear, if I never see another French fry again, it will be too soon. And by ‘never,’ I mean next week, but you know what I mean.
