Hi, guys! Happy Thursday!
I started my morning with the most deeeelicious breakfast: Bacon, egg, and avocado on a rice cake. Mmm! I could seriously eat this breakfast every day. It was a little tricky to eat, so I was careful as I took each bite of the rice cake. It did, though, fall apart at the very end. I wish I had made more breakfast "cookies," which, FYI, aren't sweet like a cookie. That would have been a tasty combo! Oh well, next time!
After breakfast was... well, fun. Quinn wasn't a fan of the medicine that we needed to apply to his eyes for the conjunctivitis, so there was a lot of fighting/tantrums/bad moods. Mal and I were both at our wit's end, so we decided to head out for an adventure. We swung by
Southfield Union Point to let both of our boys run around - Murphy at the dog park and Quinn at the playground.
Things turned around and we had a blast chasing each other around pretending to be "airplanes."
Quinn was in charge of the "control center" and told us when to blast off! 🙂
Back at home, Mal and Quinn ate lunch while I hopped on a work call. When it was over, I threw together a quick lunch of leftover Cuban Turkey Picadillo (recipe in meal plan below) with arugula and avocado.
While eating lunch, I shared this oldie, but goodie workout on Instagram - just wanted to share it here too since I've gotten a lot of great feedback about posting workouts for you guys to try. I'll keep 'em coming! 🙂
After that, Quinn went down for a nap, and I jumped on my laptop to crank out some work. When he woke up, we both had a snack. I went with baby carrots and cucumber slices dipped into cottage cheese with Ginger Ninja kettle chips and a Spindrift. It was a really filling and flavorful snack!
Dinner was basically the same as lunch, but I added some crumbled feta to switch things up a bit. Then, I finished off the night with a package of dark chocolate truffle Protein Almonds, which are truly one of the best things I've tasted lately! Definitely give these babies a try... they're life-changing! 🙂

Question of the Day
What was the BEST thing you ate yesterday?
Mine was the Protein Almonds, but the bacon, egg, and avocado rice cake was a close second! Yummmm!
