Hi, guys! Just popping in to give you a little recap of yesterday!
Q and I were up at 3:30 AM, so by the time we finished with everything, it was just about 5:00 AM, so I started my day. I figured while everyone was sleeping (both Q and Murphy ate breakfast and then went back to bed), I should get some work done. Breakfast was a pita with almond butter and banana slices inside and two glasses of iced coffee with vanilla almond milk ice cubes.
Mal woke up around 7:45 AM (Q started fussing), so I took Murphy for a walk while he was on baby duty. After that, I got ready for CrossFit and headed to the gym to get my sweat on!
The 9:00 AM class at 781 was bumping yesterday! It was like a Saturday class! So fun!
The workout was Open WOD 13.2, which I’ve done twice already, so I was excited to see how I would do after having a baby. I finished the workout with a score of 209 (6+29), which was 27 reps less than my 2013 Open performance, but I’m happy that I am getting back into the swing of things. It was my first Rx workout since giving birth! Yay!
I was starving when I got home from CrossFit, so I threw together some random leftovers from the fridge to hold me over until lunchtime: sautéed kale, roasted zucchini and summer squash, sweet potato wedges, and black bean dip.
While I was eating, Q started to get fussy, so I set my food down on the coffee table and picked him up. Well, apparently, Murphy was really hungry (and probably super jealous) because he started to EAT my food! Bad dog! Murphy has always been a beggar, but he’d never eat food off your plate—or so I thought! I really think the little butthead was trying to get my attention with his bad behavior. Anyway, after my food had been licked, it wasn’t very appetizing, so I threw it away and then poured myself a bowl of gluten-free, grain-free, GMO-free granola with almond milk. Larabar recently sent me some of their new Renola to sample, and it’s my new favorite thing. I pretty much can’t stop eating it!
After that, the day pretty much got away from me. I tried to get some work done, but Q was super cranky. I’m pretty sure he’s going through a growth spurt (apparently, there’s one around 6 weeks) because all he has wanted to do is eat for the past two days. It also seemed like he just wanted to be held, so we spent a lot of time together and before I knew it, it was almost 3:00 PM, and my stomach was grumbling like crazy!
Lunch was the most random mix of leftovers from the fridge, but it worked!
And after that, I ate some fruit salad.
Mal finished off the container. Clearly, Q was not impressed.
A few hours later, Mal, Q, and I headed to our friends’ new condo for dinner and drinks. My friend Jess made my Simple Summer Sangria for us!
After being cooped up in the house for the past 6 weeks with a newborn, Mal and I finally feel ready to venture out more regularly and get our social life back in order. The next two weeks are actually really busy for us, so it’ll be interesting to see how things go with Q. I’m just glad life is getting back to normal—well, a new normal.
