Hi, mates! First issues first: I slept 10 hours… and I’m nonetheless drained. How does that occur!? Oy. More on this in a minute!
So, I’m running a blog from mattress this night. I put Quinn to mattress and then simply didn’t really feel like watching TV, so I grabbed my laptop computer and began engaged on this recap from the day. I’m hoping to convey again extra “day in the life” content material after polling followers on Instagram. I’d say a great 90% of the replies I obtained had been associated to on a regular basis life, household adventures, and each day meals. CNC mainly began as a private on-line journal, so I hope that’s the place it leads to the longer term. Full circle, proper? 🙂
Quinn slept till 7:15 AM (!!) this morning, however I was so groggy when he got here into our bed room, Mal truly ended up going downstairs with him, which meant I obtained one other 40 minutes of sleep. I actually can’t bear in mind the final time I slept till virtually eight:00 AM, particularly after going to mattress at 10:00 PM the night time earlier than. Guys, I slept for practically 10 hours! That’s UNHEARD OF.
When I test my sleep tracker on my FitBit, I barely ever hit greater than 7 hours of sleep. Usually, I’m within the 6-7 hour vary, and I’m actually impressed by anybody who can get eight+ hours of sleep. How do you do it? Do you could have a tiny human residing with you? Haha! Ok, I actually love that Quinn is an early riser, and I’ve at all times cherished our mornings collectively, however generally I simply need to sleep in, ya know? I go to mattress fairly early, however I nonetheless can’t make that magical eight hours occur. Any ideas or recommendation? Anyone else in the identical boat?
Ok, I’ve rambled on lengthy sufficient… let’s get going with this recap, lets? 🙂
eight:42 AM: Woohoo, pancake breakfast! The boys eat Mal’s well-known cake-like pancakes, and I take pleasure in Pamela’s (gluten- and egg-free) Protein Pancakes with cinnamon and maple syrup on high. Mmm! I additionally had an iced espresso with Nutzest Smooth Vanilla protein powder and Nutpods.
10:14 AM: Driveway exercise! I did a operating + body weight exercise. I used a yoga mat for push-ups on my knees. FYI: My sneakers are the Launch 6 from Brooks, that are on sale at Zappos (free delivery) for simply $74, and there are many colours out there! 🙂
10:45 AM: I’m feeling type of snack-y (and thirsty) after my exercise, so I slice up a cucumber (from our mates’ backyard) and sprinkle on some sea salt.
10:47 AM: I share a number of cucumber slices with Murphy, who’s only a tad excited!
11:07 AM: Quinn and I break into his new Kiwi Crate. This one truly consists of three mini tasks, and it retains us busy for a few hours!
12:14 PM: We take a break for lunch. I hadn’t accomplished any meal prep but for the week, so lunch was a random mixture of throw-together elements. In the combination: kale, black beans, Banza pasta, and leftover lemon tahini dressing from CAVA. It most likely sounds a bit of unusual, however it labored! 🙂 Lunch was positively scrumptious, nutritious, and tremendous satisfying!
2:47 PM: Park time with the boys! It was such a lovely day, so we headed out for some recent air and exercise at Forge Pond Park.
three:01 PM: It’s too sizzling for pugs! Murphy lays down within the grass to chill off… whereas Quinn takes off his sneakers! 🙂
four:17 PM: Back at dwelling, I’m exhausted and plop my butt on the sofa. I watch half of an episode of “Summer House,” snuggle Murphy, and eat some kale chips whereas Mal and Quinn play baseball exterior. WHY am I so drained after getting a lot sleep the night time earlier than?!
6:13 PM: Dinnertime! On the menu: A rice bowl made with kale, shredded pink cabbage, roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted pink onions, baked rooster breast, and straightforward peanut sauce drizzled on high. It was SO GOOD!
