Rise ‘n’ shine, it’s breakfast time!
I tried out a new “recipe” yesterday morning as a way to incorporate pumpkin seeds into my day. (I’m onto Phase 2 of Kelli’s seed cycling protocol.) In the mix: Sliced banana, collagen, pumpkin seeds, sunflower butter, and almond milk. I envisioned a cereal-like breakfast, but it didn’t quite do the trick. It definitely needed something more, so I ended up adding a handful of Pumpkin Spice Cheerios halfway through eating it – much better! 🙂
I typically get up super early in the morning to work before Mal and Quinn wake up. Quinn slept until 7:40 AM (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), so Mal was awake, pouring himself an iced coffee, and not-so-secretly making fun of my “intense” working face.
Derp. At least, I can laugh at myself!
Once Quinn was awake and everyone ate breakfast, it was time for a road tip out to Littleton, where Mal and I grew up and our parents still live today.
These two are usually best buds, but, apparently, Murphy had some seriously bad breath. Quinn kept saying “Murphy smellllllls” over and over again. Haha!
At Papi’s house, we swam in the pool and my mom (Grandma) came over for a little while. It was great to catch up with the grandparents – we’ve barely seen them this summer! 🙂
Eventually, it was time for lunch, so we headed to Tavern on the Square. It was my first time there, and I really enjoyed my experience. The Littleton location is big and open with an cute little outdoor patio.
They also had cool straws.
And delicious food! I loved my Kale & Quinoa salad. Mmm!
Question of the Day
When was the last time you visited your hometown? Do your parent(s) still live there?
P.S. I’m competiting in Massage Envy’s “Train Like a Pro Challenge,” so I’ll be using their all new Total Body Stretch to (hopefully) keep my muscle imbalances and related injuries in check. I want to train for a half marathon this fall, so my goal is to be able to run for 90 minutes without injury before I commit. Keep an eye out for more updates! In the meantime, please VOTE FOR ME over on the Train Like a Pro website. You can vote everyday and it only takes 2 seconds! TIA! 🙂
