With the Christmas season quickly approaching (18 days and counting) my husband and I have decided to re-dedicate ourselves to working out a little bit more.
Now we go to the Y 2-3 times a week but decided to ramp it up with Jillian Michael's Shred.
Holy Cow! I was thinking a 20 minute workout couldn't be too bad, but man of man does she kick your butt for that short period of time.
I do have to admit that sometimes my helpers made the workout a little cumbersome.
When I'm not trying to work out I've been busy blending smoothies in our new Vitamix. We have been rocking smoothies everyday and most days I get a couple of sips before relinquishing them to my kids.
There must be something to the smoothness of the smoothies that makes them enjoy them so much because this was never a
So without further ado please allow me to share with you what I tried to eat this week.
Breakfast was a triple berry smoothie with a tablespoon of Vega vanilla chai protein powder.
I didn't get too much of that breakfast, but you know I can't be upset because I love that she wants to eat such delicious whole foods.
Lunch I got most of was a bowl of vegetable soup (I will be guest posting the recipe on Savour the Senses this Friday).
Andrew REALLY likes this soup and proceeded to come sit in my lap to "help" me with the mushrooms (as well as the carrots, spaghetti, and celery).
Oh well the veggies are good for you!
For dinner I didn't photograph it because it was the ugliest pancakes I have ever made.
I had a lot of trouble with flipping them in the pan (consequently I will be buying a new pan today as I think the non-stick surface is shot on the old one).
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and will come back later today to see my post for Mom's Crazy Cooking challenge....we did fudge today :)
So what yummy food do you lose to your kids/spouse/boyfriend/dog?
