Heat Wave + My Food and Fitness Plan [1/18]

 Hello and Happy Sunday!

I am happy to report that everyone here is well and happy! We are experiencing a glorious January heat wave here in Kansas City which is food to my sunshine loving soul.

Ina likes it too.

I wish I had more energy to play with her outside longer, but baking a baby takes a lot out of me, so instead we baked sweet potato brownies.

 

This kid has a rough life. 🍪

While I was working yesterday morning, Ina and Dan went on an “adventure,” otherwise known as a walk around Longview Lake. They came back smelling like outside and ready for a nap.

Then last night we dropped Ina off at my sister’s house to play with her cousins while we enjoyed a suite at the hockey game with our friends Nick and Michele.  

Today is church and then trying to unplug a clog in our sink. We have already tried the plunger and sulfuric acid. I think a phone call to the plumber might be in our future.  

Here is what I am up to this week (assuming we having a working sink):

Food:  

Also, a few snack and breakfast preps: hummus, hard boiled eggs, and carrot cake breakfast cookies

Fitness:  

  • Sunday: 3ish mile walk/run (have to take advantage of this beautiful weather!)
  • Monday: rest
  • Tuesday: prenatal pilates
  • Wednesday: 1000 m swim
  • Thursday: rest
  • Friday: 1000 swim
  • Saturday: rest

What are you up to this week?  Linking up with Mommy, Run Fast!

  1. Glad you got to enjoy a little heat wave! Still very cold here. We're the snowiest city in the U.S. right now. What a title!

    Sweet potato brownies sound interesting!

    1. Oh yes, I remember those days. We ended up taking the newborn on a few dates. She slept through most of them. That won't be so easy this time around.

      Yes, they were "interesting." Dan didn't even try them, but Ina and I like them. :)

    1. Bahaha, I think that is an excellent plan. When I was pregnant with Ina, I had to lay down underneath my desk a few days because I couldn't take it anymore. Good luck!

  7. Hi Racheal. Nice to meet you! I co-host the link up with Laura. We enjoyed a day of sunshine and unseasonably warm temps on Sat. It was amazing and felt so good.

    Thanks for linking up and sharing your menu!

  8. Curious if you've tried anything other than Feta cheese? My husband and I are fans of it but these turkey burgers sound great.

    1. Hi Charllsie! I think we made them once with cheddar cheese, which melted a bit more and made more of a crust? on the outside of the burger. I also can't remember if we put spinach in that time or not. Maybe try mozzarella?

      I will say that Dan is usually not a fan of feta cheese, but loves these burgers. :) Good luck!
