I feel like we haven’t talked in forever. Well, ok, not since Friday, but it felt strange not sharing a weekend recap with you. I apologize. We’re jamming over here in Designed to Fit land, so I was busy with that and then I got sick, like food poisoning sick. Ugh, it was awful. I’ve actually never had food poisoning, but I guess there’s a first for everything, right?
The only “weird” thing I ate– that maybe could have made me sick– was bagged baby spinach. Nothing else was suspect and, thankfully, I’m the only one who ate it. Mal was out-to-dinner with friends, and Qman ate pizza, so it was just me… rolling around in bed, trying not to die, and then, a couple of hours later, swiftly walking to the bathroom to vomit. UGH, not fun. I hate throwing up so much. But, hey, once the evil was out, I was totally fine. I fell right to sleep and woke up the next morning feeling like a million bucks. So, there ya go: My first experience with food poisoning. Good times. Anyway, I felt completely fine yesterday and ate normally, so I wanted to share my Monday in Meals!
5:19 AM: I pour myself a glass of iced coffee with collagen and coconut creamer and then get to work.
6:45 AM: My stomach starts to grumble. Time for breakfast! I eat two pieces of Butternut Squash Breakfast Casserole (I left out the sage because Mal isn’t a fan) and pour myself iced coffee #2.
7:40 AM: Qman wakes up. Holy cow. I don’t think he’s ever slept so late in his entire life.
We spend the morning playing before his weekly Early Intervention appointment.
We play with water balloons.
Qman is killing it with words lately. He also busted out “bagel” for the first time yesterday morning. 🙂
11:05 AM: Snack time: I have Muuna peach cottage cheese with Cheerios.
After snack time, Qman and I head to Jo-Ann Fabric to get his Halloween costume. He wants to be a ghost, so I buy two yards of white fabric. I just need to cut out a couple of holes for eyes, and his Halloween costume will be complete!
12:30 PM: Lunchtime! Lunch was steamed broccoli and peas with baked chicken breast, Caesar vinaigrette, and shredded Swiss cheese. It was a little random, but I ended up throwing out the spaghetti squash lasagna that I made for dinner the previous night (because food poisoning), so I just winged it for lunch.
1:00 PM: I finish off Qman’s apple slices from his lunch.
2:47 PM: Cranberry-Cacao Nib Protein Muffin (recipe coming to CNC soon) and Dandy Blend mixed with collagen and banana milk. Yes, banana milk. It’s actually quite tasty and nutritious. The brand sent me a carton to sample (I was seriously so curious), and now I’m hooked. I really love bananas, so I’m using it in my iced coffee, smoothies, cereal… everything lately!
About an hour later, Qman wakes up from his nap. When we go downstairs, he sees that Murphy is sleeping, so he covers him with “Geet,” his blanket. Aww, so sweet.
Shortly after that, I drive to CrossFit. I finish the WOD in 9:13 Rx, which included 14-pound wallballs to a 10-foot target and totally kicked my butt. That extra foot is no joke, especially after a 60-calorie row! Oy.
5:40 PM: A mini protein shake made with SFH vanilla Recovery and orange juice. I knew I was going home to eat dinner, so I only used a 1/2 scoop (maybe less?) of protein powder.
5:55 PM: A chicken nugget. When I walked in the door after CrossFit, Mal was making Quinn’s dinner, so I snagged one. I was hungry, and they just smelled so good!
I throw together dinner for Mal and me and then head upstairs to shower. Quick shout-out to the rice bowls from O Organics. They’re awesome!
6:38 PM: I eat chicken stir fry with rice for dinner. I’m so hungry that I forget to snap a photo before I dig in, so, FYI, there was a much bigger portion before I started. #feedme
7:11 PM: I eat about 500 Justin’s Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. My gosh, they are addictive!!!! The peanut butter inside is ridiculous… thick, soft, and creamy. I probably shouldn’t keep these things in the house anymore. I have zero willpower around them!!
Question of the Day
Have you ever had food poisoning? What happened?
Around what food(s) do you have zero willpower?
