Hello and a very happy Monday to you!
Did the weekend fly by for anyone else? Holy cow. It was a whirlwind for us. That said, here’s another edition of “High Low High” as a way to recap. If you’re unfamiliar, these posts recap the high and low points of our weekend. I always like to finish on a high note, so there are always more “highs” from my weekend than “lows.” If you’d like to play along, please leave a comment with your “high low high” from your weekend! Ok, here we go””in no particular order…
Halloween with a toddler was awesome. We seriously had so much fun, which was quite a bit different than last year. Remember our little scuba diver? Well, he had a blast this year!
On Friday afternoon, we went to a Halloween party, which included a costume parade, games, and all sorts of treats!
On Halloween night, we trick-or-treated around our neighborhood with some of our neighbor friends. It was a lot fun. (I loved when Quinn tried to go into one of our neighbor’s houses while trick-or-treating there!)
I dressed up as a banana for Quinn. He was not amused. Look at his face! Haha!
LOW: Having nightmares after watching the most recent episode of American Horror Story. This season is so frigging creepy/messed-up/scary/disturbing. Maybe I shouldn’t watch it anymore?
HIGH: Running the South Shore Half Marathon! (Full race recap tomorrow!)
Post-race, we grabbed breakfast at The Tinker’s Son.
The Bloody Mary bar was epic.
And breakfast was quite delicious as well.
LOW: On the way to visit our friends’ new baby, Quinn threw up all over himself. We think he was just too full after drinking a smoothie, but he was upset and we didn’t want him around a 2-week old baby just in case he was really sick, so we all headed home. (Quinn ended up being totally fine in the end. Too much smoothie.)
HIGH: Doing some serious food prep yesterday afternoon. I’m pumped for a healthy week ahead!
Top left to right: Sweet Potato Breakfast Potatoes, shredded Brussels sprouts, baked acorn squash, baked butternut squash, chicken wings, Bok Choy with rice cakes (Blue Apron recipe), Crock-Pot Pumpkin Steel-Cut Oatmeal, roasted garlic, sliced red onion, and Breakfast Potatoes with green bell pepper and onion.
New Week, New Goals
A new week means NEW GOALS! Let’s keep the motivation train going! But, first, let’s review how I did with last week’s goals.
LAST WEEK’S GOALS:
Drink at least 64 ounces of water per day – I did great with this goal and drank lots of water last week.
Attend at least 2 CrossFit classes – I FINALLY made it to two classes in one week!!!
Eat dinner as a family every weeknight – Yes and no. We ate a few meals together, but I know we can do better.
Limit snacks to one per day – Eh. I did okay with this one. Some days were better than others.
Clean the interior of my car – Yes! My car was going in for a tune-up at the dealership, so I asked if they could clean the interior while it was there. (Might as well, right?) And now my car is super duper clean!
THIS WEEK’S GOALS:
Limit snacks to one per day – Trying again this week. More meals, fewer snacks.
Try a new recipe – I’m bored with our recent dinners.
Get things framed – I have 3 pieces that need to be framed, and I’ve put it off for weeks now.
Get my inbox below 100 emails – My inbox is out-of-control.
