It’s been a busy week over right here. Mal is again to high school, and Quinn begins Kindergarten on TOMORROW. Quinn’s had all types of orientation-type actions main as much as the massive day, together with a playdate, open home the place he met his instructor and noticed his classroom, and a follow bus trip dwelling. I really like that the college actually helps the youngsters put together, however bear in mind the times when our dad and mom simply threw us on the bus and we went to high school? Even Quinn mentioned he needed to “get the show on the road” so far as beginning faculty. Haha!
For the report, I’m glad Quinn’s classroom begins the alphabet with the letter “A.” In my Kindergarten classroom, we discovered the letter “M” first, and it nonetheless bothers me 34 years later. I imply, WHY would you begin with “M”?! I additionally do not forget that the second letter was “T” and the entire vowels had been saved for the tip. My 5-year-old mind didn’t like this! Haha!
I additionally needed to inform you guys that I’m internet hosting a giveaway to win Three meal plan downloads over on the CNC Nutrition & Accountability group on Facebook. These meal plans are an effective way to jumpstart your wholesome consuming motivation at a really reasonably priced value – most are simply $9.99. Plus, not everybody desires to work with a coach, and I completely get that! If you’re not but a member of the group, simply request to affix. I’ll decide Three winners on Friday afternoon!
After an almost Three-month CrossFit hiatus, I’m again at it. My YMCA membership + driveway exercises had been okay, however I felt like my health was actually beginning to wane. I simply don’t push myself the identical approach after I work out on my own, so I signed up for an infinite membership with the hope of changing into a daily at Salt Shack once more. So far, so good, and I’m actually completely happy to be again! 🙂
We made this High-Protein Instant Pot Chicken Pasta final week, and I forgot how scrumptious (and simple!) it’s. The recipe is made with high-protein Banza pasta – undoubtedly add it to your meal plan subsequent week! 🙂
Quinn has made nice strides together with his choosy consuming in latest weeks. We began to make use of a “reward jar” to encourage bites of recent meals, and it’s working fairly nicely. He now eats (on the common) roasted potatoes, rice, cucumber slices with salt, and guacamole! We’re so pleased with him and meal instances have develop into much more pleasant!
How the reward jar works: Every time Quinn tries a brand new meals, he will get so as to add a marble to the jar. Once the jar is full, he will get to select a prize of his alternative. The first prize he picked was a Pokemon Trainer! 🙂
Speaking of recent meals… I’m loving the Whenever Bars from Pamela’s. The model despatched me a number of completely different flavors to strive, and they’re THE BEST single-serving (and satisfying) dessert I’ve tried in awhile. They’re mainly a mushy, chewy oatmeal cookie, and I really like that they’re gluten-free and don’t have a bunch of loopy elements in them. I extremely advocate the Oat Blueberry Lemon and Oat Cranberry Almond flavors!
We had the outside of our home painted, and we’re so pleased with the outcomes!
BEFORE (with out the darkish inexperienced shutters):
With Quinn off to high school tomorrow, we’re winding down our “Quinn and Mumma” days, and I’m actually attempting to soak all of it in. Yesterday afternoon, we made rice crispy treats with sprinkles simply because! 🙂
