What I've Been Eating Lately

Poor Ina had a fever last night.

I came home from my run and started to feed her.  When she felt hot to my touch after I ran 4 miles I knew something was up.  I calmly put the thermometer in her ear and it beeped back 101.2.

Minor, I know, but the first time I have seen anything above 98.7 with my baby girl.  I called the Children's Mercy nurses desk, texted my sister, and gave her some Tylenol.  

Long story short - if she is breathing fine and the temperature doesn't get above 102 she probably has a little virus or is teething.  

I gave her some Tylenol and stripped her down to her diaper.  Ten minutes later you wouldn't know she had a fever - she was squealing, playing, and laughing.  

Whew.

I owe you guys a complete review of Simply Filling, and I still plan to do it, but I thought I would add now that I haven't been putting food pics because I have been eating the same thing over and over again.  Besides the Cinco de Mayo indulgence or the occasional Pop Tart (why can't I quit those?) I have been staying on track.

Overnight oats for breakfast.  My new favorite combo is strawberries and walnuts.

I ate yesterday's while working on my back porch.  

Carb + protein + veg / fruit for dinner.

Salad + baked potato + Italian chicken for dinner (plus vino).

Snacks: oranges, carrots, hard boiled eggs, and popcorn.  

Exercise

I have been pretty consistent on my running - even though I have had to switch to the evening.   Little Miss wakes up for the day at 6ish, so I am all tied up until after work.  

Sometimes I take her with me, which combines my two loves and is the best thing in the world!

Stay tuned tomorrow for an exciting challenge on switching things up.

  1. I love that you were working outside!

    Regarding your last post, I'm going to see if I can find a walking program for strengthening my back and set a goal for that!

  2. I am really interested to read your review of Simply Filling. I have had WW (using points) work for me before. However, I'm training for a marathon now and I have had a lot of trouble with the regular program as I try to loose about 15lbs. I am also trying Simply Filling and trying to focus on healthy foods. I'm not the type to eat too much bread, pasta or healthy foods in general (I gained weight because I was eating too much candy during a stressful time) so I'm hoping the program might work for me. Definitely keep us posted! I sure enjoy your pictures of food- gives me ideas!
