My Food and Fitness Plan #27

Good morning!

This post is going out a little late today because I slept in until 7:15!  Ina woke up at the same time, so I have been failing at multi-tasking since.  

Whew, I feel like I have spent this entire weekend going from one thing to another.  We are currently snowed in and plan to spend the rest of the day hunkered down here, which I am looking forward to.  

Friday we went out to eat with our friends Brad and Chessa and their baby, who was wonderfully behaved.  Ina, however, wasn’t.  Sigh.  

Before we left, I made a smoothie to make sure to get my veggies in, but I didn’t get a chance, because Ina wanted it. All.

It was like she was a smoothie monster.

Give me more!

Yesterday after I worked in the morning, I ran to the grocery store to stock up before the snow storm we had last night / this morning.  Everyone had the same idea and I saw so many people I knew, which was perfect because I hadn’t showered, or really looked in the mirror before I left the house. 

After the grocery store I went to the pool to get in a swim.

Whew I am out of swimming shape and I am sore today!

I hurried home to shower / eat lunch / get Ina ready for a princess birthday party we went to which was so fun!

So many pretty princesses there.  Notice the mark on Ina’s forehead?  She hit a rail on the banister Friday night.  I am glad I am still in the running for mom of the year.

We went to church last night and then came home to dinner and a bottle of wine.

  1. Yay! You got your swim in, good for you! I found it so hard when I hadn't done it in awhile. I have skipped a few weeks now due to everyone being sick so now you're motivating me ;-) Have a good week.
