Tackled this lovely mini-strength training sessions this morning.
I did it in Henry’s room while simultaneously dodging rolling trucks, tossed blankies, and Maggie, who insists on licking my face every time I turn to one side for a bicycle crunch.
And then we did a family 5 mile run. I pushed the stroller most of the way, and then Kristien took over for the last mile. I had to SPRINT to keep up with him – and he was pushing 45 pounds. Ugh. It’s no fair the way that works, huh? I run for years and years; Kristien starts running a few months ago and blows me out of the water without really trying.
Looks good, right? Of course it does – there’s coffee in there! Anything with coffee is 100% tastier.
In the oatmeal pot:
2/3 cup oats
2/3 cup brewed coffee
1/3 cup almond milk
Topping: brown sugar, coconut, strawberries
And yes, I totally still drank my regular cup of coffee.

Question of the Day:
What is the best kitchen / cleaning / entertainment / workout / parenting gadget you own and why? I LOVE our robot vacuum so much because we get vacuum carpet lines without doing any work. It’s the little things in life.
Caitlin you are brilliant for putting coffee in oatmeal- I must try. I love coffee everything lol And I know it must be annoying that your hubby just started running and is already so speedy. I swear men are built so differently (well, duh-lol) I feel like my brothers look 5 pounds thinner after one workout. They are just made to be fit I guess lol I don’t have a favorite gadget really, but I like the “iRun” app on my iphone because it calculates everything about the run and it’s free too 🙂
