we are still struggling to get back into our daily routine over here. we just have so much stuff to do and thinking about it is somewhat overwhelming at times. but we are doing our best to take it one day at a time knowing that we will get back to ‘normal’ around here soon.
we tried our best to capture our day yesterday through our eats. but at the end of the day we realized it probably was not the best day to show as we did not have much time to really eat yesterday since we were so busy with things. but nevertheless we will share our day yesterday. this is not a typical day of eats for us. it is random. our life right now is random. so we are just going with the flow and not stressing too much as we know we will soon be back to our usually eats.
upon waking we did not have our normal 2 cups of warm water. not really sure why, just did not feel like it. really did not feel like anything. so we just got ready for the day and headed to our new kitchen to start work.
we did grab some biscotti’s to enjoy.
it is our new recipe using coconut nectar instead of maple syrup to help lower our sugar content in our biscotti. we are pleased with them. it does provide a different flavor and level of sweetness, as coconut nectar we do find not as sweet as maple. but we still enjoyed every bite. we ended up having 2 each to start our day.
stopped by starbucks to grab some coffee. Lori is drinking a little coffee again now.
did a little picking up, computer work, and some errands. then squeezed in a quick 6 minute workout.
no matter how much mess we might have- we still find room to workout
we set our Gymboss Interval Timer to 6 rounds of 10 sec (rest) and 50 sec (work)
- 1. mountain climbers
- 2. super-girl pushups
- 3. pile squats
- 4. jump squats
- 5. burpees (no pushup)
- 6. sumo pushup
we felt like doing a full body workout, so we picked 6 different exercises that we enjoy doing. we did not do plank. as we are realizing now that we have about 20-30 minute commute to work, we are going to have to keep our workouts short!
Michelle’s place right now looks like a hurricane came through haha
especially right now as Lori is still in the process of moving, we are still moving things over to the new kitchen and getting that up and running, and now Michelle is in the process of packing up and finding a place to move to.
post workout we made ourselves a green smoothie
this smoothie was romaine, basil, 1 frozen banana, Sunwarrior brown rice protein, turmeric.
inhaled that smoothie. filled our water bottles up. then hit the road again back to the kitchen with more stuff to unload.
later that afternoon we got back from making more crackers and biscotti at the kitchen and felt hungry. we grabbed another of our go-to protein based snacks – Vega protein powder. mixed it with some water and inhaled that. we usually try to enjoy each of our meals but yesterday it was all about getting food in and moving onto next project.
we also enjoyed some citrus kombucha. love this flavor! really we love anything lemon.
did manage to make a quick stop by Trader Joes to pick up some food, since we have none in the house. and must say thank goodness for pre-chopped veggies!
having these pre-chopped veggies sure did make our dinner super easy to make! perfect for busy days when you do not have a lot of time for prep work in the food department.
dinner came around after 8pm. we made egg whites with veggies and sweet potatoes. a quick healthy dinner done in under 20 minutes. love that.
later on that night Lori had a glass of goat milk, plus we both enjoyed two more dough balls. we did not do very well with our water intake yesterday. we are making up for it today! it is becoming one of our personal health goals now to really increase our water intake.
well that was our day yesterday in a quick nutshell. today has been a little bit better but pretty close to being the same! not sure when normalcy will arrive for us!
and for those that were asking Lori yesterday about them taking a honeymoon – they are. it will happen at the end of this month! which should be another great mini vacation for Lori and Gary. we are still editing photos of Lori’s wedding weekend, we will share them here soon!!!
Twins Question: what do you do when you have extremely busy days with food? do you just go with the flow and eat when you can? or do you try to prep the day before? what is your go-to meal when you are too busy to make something? we try to do prep-work for our eats the day before but since getting back into town we did not have any time for that.
till next time,
