Hi buddies! Hope you’re having a beautiful morning. We’re simply taking it straightforward right here and searching ahead to a different tie dye blitz this afternoon. The ladies have gotten so good at tie dye currently and have been dyeing just about any white article of clothes in the home.
For at present’s put up, I assumed I’d share a WIAW-style put up. To be sincere, my consuming hasn’t been very stellar since we’ve began this entire “stay at home” factor a couple of months in the past. We’ve been cooking much more of our meals at residence, which is an effective factor, however I discover that as a result of I’m juggling a lot extra – it was much more intense after we had been doing the gap studying factor – I’ll typically go for dips into the chocolate chip bag as a substitute of actual meals. When I really feel confused, I are inclined to really feel fairly blah about food. I make the women scrumptious and balanced meals, however once I must put one thing collectively for myself, it simply doesn’t sound as interesting.
I’m a believer in giving ourselves grace, particularly throughout such an unprecedented time. In the longer term, I’m certain I’ll be again to my meal prepping and arranged methods, however I’m simply over right here flying the seat of my pants most days. 😉 I in all probability ought to have taken photos of the youngsters’ meals as a result of they had been a bit extra thrilling lol however right here we’re: a full day of eats.
8:30am: We all sleep till 8 (!) so I eat a couple of Enjoy Life protein balls whereas I begin the espresso maker and make the women their favourite fluffy pancakes with scrambled eggs and strawberries.
The Pilot is telecommuting at present (wahoo!) so we sit on the patio and drink espresso collectively whereas the women eat their breakfast inside.
(Decaf espresso with monk fruit, almond milk, and a scoop of Vital Proteins collagen)
10:00am: The downstairs is cleaned up, beds are made, and the entire animals are fed, so I head upstairs to catch a fast obé health Dance HIIT exercise.
The ladies are taking part in with their dolls and having enjoyable collectively, so I get in a fast work blitz: I reply emails, reply to Beautycounter skincare surveys, reply to weblog feedback, and schedule 4 podcast interviews for the subsequent month.
11:30am: I’ve official breakfast whereas I make the women lunch. This is a smoothie with the women’ leftover breakfast strawberries (I hate tossing fruit, so I simply put their leftover breakfast fruit within the fridge till I make a smoothie in some unspecified time in the future in the course of the day), almond milk, chia sees, almond butter, frozen cauliflower rice (you possibly can’t style it but it surely provides it an awesome texture and nutrient increase), cocoa powder, maca, spinach, Truvani protein powder, and monk fruit.
For the women’ lunch, they’ve avocado toast with a aspect of cotton sweet grapes, hummus, and carrots
I additionally begin the sourdough for the next day and let it relaxation.

We meet up with some buddies and the women all play within the water carrying mermaid tails, whereas my good friend, the Pilot, and I chat within the tanning ledge space. I additionally apply a little bit of swimming with P – she’s getting so good at swimming with out her puddle jumper!
3:30pm: We’re on the pool for a couple of hours and since I haven’t formally had lunch but, I’m getting fairly snacky and so are the women. They break up a cheeseburger with fries, whereas all of us share hen wings and jumbo shrimp cocktail. (The shrimp are the scale of my hand and SO good.)
I initially deliberate to make a large salad for lunch however after we get residence from the pool, I do know dinner will likely be fairly quickly and don’t really feel like chopping something, so there ya go.
4:00-6:00pm: Another fast work blitz whereas the Pilot hangs out with the crew downstairs. I’ve a convention name, pre-write the meat of this weblog put up, reply emails (my inbox is a black gap of unhappiness), make a few fast exercise graphics, schedule my coschedule content material for the week, and brainstorm content material for the next week.

and eat roughly 1400 chips with salsa.
We take a household stroll, give the women baths and do the nighttime routine, they usually’re each crashed by 9pm.
9:00-10:30pm: I watch Tombstone with the Pilot whereas typing up the remainder of this weblog put up and getting all the things to go for the next day. Before mattress, I sip on a golden milk latte and form the sourdough loaves and pop them into the fridge.
We additionally exit to the balcony to take photos of the hearth. It’s moved east however has grown exponentially and isn’t even 1 / 4 contained.
11:15pm: Lights out and able to do it another time.
What I appreciated about today of eats: I actually love the shrimp cocktail on the pool, so any day that features that may be a win. Also Taco Tuesday = one other win. Even although I form of skipped lunch in favor of snacks, I positively would have hit my protein objective for the day. (I ended monitoring macros some time in the past, however nonetheless attempt to ensure I’ve protein in each meal and snack.)
What I didn’t like about today of eats: It was a bit decrease on the veggies and nutrient entrance that I might have appreciated. I often attempt to get in some sort of contemporary fruit and/or veggies with each meal, however currently, this hasn’t been occurring as usually. I’m simply rolling with it and ready till inspiration strikes once more. Every week I say I’m going to make extra of an effort, however some weeks have felt fairly blah, ya know? If you’re feeling the identical approach, please know you’re not alone.
