What We Ate: 1

My food “goal,” if you will, is to eat balanced, real food meals. I’m trying to buy more produce and do the preparing/cooking myself.

I think we ate pretty well today.

For breakfast I had two waffles with a little syrup, and a cup of black coffee. The waffles were made using the Bisquick recipe. I made two batches Monday morning to keep the family in breakfast foods.

When Braden got up I ate some grapes.

My dad brought Whataburger for lunch… Not so great. Haha. But I don’t turn down a visit with my dad or free lunch!

For an afternoon snack I had a chicken salad wrap. These things have become addicting. I use the left over chicken from the whole chicken I made last week. I just added the Aldi mayonnaise and wrapped it all in a tortilla. I added grapes to mine yesterday and that was yum too!

Dinner was Parmesan pork chops fried in coconut oil with spaghetti squash spaghetti with home made sauce. We also had corn in the cob with a cilantro like butter I made.

Of course we also ate a ton of cake balls. Yum! That kills the healthy eating part, but you gotta live a little, right?

I did my pinterest workout twice. 🙂

I am loving this super simple routine. It’s short enough to fit in just a few minutes. It’s not what I’d do ideally, but it is better than nothing.

Here’s the routine (done twice):
50 x jumping jacks
5 x pushups
20 x situps *
20 x mountain climbers
30 second plank
7 x burpees *

I made a few adjustments since I am recovering from the csection.

I do crunches instead of situps. I physically cannot do a situp, so this is a necessity.

The other change I made was to skip the burpees, although I do plan to add those back in later. I was doing them when I first started and my form was horrible. I’m so tired by the time I get to that point. Bad form isn’t reason enough, but I hurt my ankle one day because of it. I’m going to wait until my core is a little stronger before I add those in again.

I do this twice a day if possible.

About anestinthemaking

Hi! I'm Kristi! I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend. I'm a newbie to sewing and blogging, but I'm excited to get started! Sewing is the first hobby I've really had in a long time. In high school, I sang, I played the piano, I played in the band, I wrote in journals. I went off to college, got married, started a family, and lived a life without hobbies. How boring?! Then I started reading blogs. One thing led to another and soon I was at my co-worker's house borrowing her sewing machine! I haven't looked back since! Sewing is a release for me. It's so much fun to create beautiful and useful things. It's fun to be learning something new, and it's fun to share it with you! So welcome! Take a look around, and let me know you're here! I love to meet people and respond to every message I get! And I can't wait to meet you!
