Did you have an awesome weekend? Ours was busy but great.
We actually spent a lot of time just hanging out in our backyard. A chill is definitely in the air â€“ you can tell that winter is coming! I felt like we were all trying to soak up the last bits of sun and sandals weather before it completely slips away.
I love that I can cut a bouquet of roses from our garden! Kristien takes care of our two bushes â€“ thank goodness for him. I have the blackest thumb and they would never survive under my care!
Two healthy highlights on Sunday wereâ€¦
#1 â€“ I started Round 2 of Vegetarian Whole 30 <â€”explanation (itâ€™s not regular Whole 30). I feel pretty darn great after Day 1. Iâ€™m hoping this Round will be easier than the last one because Iâ€™m not as addicted to sugar. I added sugar back in after my first experience with VW30 but never to the level that I was before!
Breakfast was collard greens, strawberries, and eggs with sliced almonds and a heap of coconut oil (almonds are so great in eggs â€“ trust me!).
And lunch was this epic salad, which had greens, carrots, tomatoes, chickpeas, snap peas, roasted potatoes, almonds, olive oil, salt, and mustard galore. I love mustard on salads.
Annnnd then I stopped photographing food because my life was consumed by this type of kiddo chaos. Not super conducive to food photography, know what I mean?
But trust me, the rest of my Vegetarian Whole 30 meals were all sorts of awesome.
#2 â€“ I had an epic strength training session at the gym. I focused on chest, shoulders, and triceps. Then I did 10 minutes on the treadmill. Afterwards, I met up with Brandi and her kids and we did a few rounds of suicide dashes on the basketball court for a little HIIT action. The kids raced, too!
All in all, a pretty nice Sunday!
And in other news, Claire is really starting to walk. After weeks of only taking a step at a time, she has suddenly graduated to a maximum of six or seven. Sheâ€™s still pretty wobble but man â€“ itâ€™s gonna happen for real very, very soon! Fun fact â€“ the way sheâ€™s walking right now (at 10 1/2 months), Henry could do at 8 months! 3 years later, Iâ€™m still struggling to keep up with him.
Have an awesome week, lovelies!
