Hi, friends! How’s your Hump Day going so far?
Mal was at a workshop all week, so it’s been just Quinn and me (and Murphy) in the mornings, which have quickly become my favorite time of day. I look forward to hearing the little guy on the monitor (even if it’s insanely early) just so we can get up and hang out together. A morning “baba” is always the first thing on our agenda, so we cuddle on the couch while watching the news or reading books. It’s such a nice way to start the day.
After that, it was iced coffee and breakfast time for mom. Peanut butter and banana on toast is my go-to for a super fast and filling breakfast. Check out that weird hole in my bread! (FYI: My bread is from Trader Joe’s.)
I ate my breakfast in the playroom while Quinn had some fun with his toys. He woke up in the best mood this morning!
He was all smiles! (Chicken hair, don’t care! It actually reminds of us Rod Stewart’s hair. Potential Halloween costume?)
A little while, it was time for Quinn’s breakfast. I was sort of still hungry too, so I grabbed some grapes to snack on.
As soon as Quinn saw them, he wanted some. The Grape Monster strikes again! This boy loves grapes!
After breakfast, we played some more and then headed to KFIT for a workout, which was a WOD recently done at CrossFit 781. (“FS” is Front Squats.) I started with #25 for the Manmakers, but switched to #15 after 10 reps. I was dying. I used #25 for the rest of the workout though (Front Squats + alternating Dumbbell Snatches). It was an awesome workout and one that I definitely want to do again. It’s a keeper for sure!
At home, I refueled with a smoothie made with strawberries, grapes, banana, spinach, vanilla soy milk, Radiance Platinum All-In-One Superfood Chocolate Mix, and SFH vanilla Recovery protein powder.
As you can see, Quinn was really into “helping” me make it.
Quinn went down for a nap not long after that. I was hungry again, so I made myself an open-face egg sandwich with Laughing Cow cheese.
And now I’m blogging.
