Weeknight Recap- Tuesday

15 Nov

Can you believe it is already Wednesday tomorrow?  This week seems to be flying by so quickly and I can’t believe Tuesday went by so quickly!

Any who, onto a quick recap of my day.


This morning Keith and I worked out very first thing.  I did 45 minutes of cardio and split the time between the treadmill (walking and incline walking) and also the elliptical.  I was definitely sweaty and tired once I was finished.

I also squeezed in some prenatal yoga before we ate dinner tonight.  It felt so good to stretch out my back.  I hopefully should sleep like a baby tonight now!



Here are my eats from the day (hubs has been craving what we had for dinner for a while now):

  • Breakfast-  1 cup of decaf coffee with just a little creamer (typing that just reminded we ran out this morning and I forgot to pick up more today), 1/2 banana and an English muffin topped with almond butter and raspberry jelly
  • Am Snack-  Banana and about an hour later Cliff Mojo bar
  • Lunch-  Greek yogurt with chia seeds, almond butter and a drip of honey (we ran out of honey as well today, but I did remember to buy more).
  • PM Snack-  Whey protein shake mixed with water and about an hour later a few chips dipped in Greek yogurt chip dip
  • Dinner-  Cheeseburger on a whole wheat bun with tomatoes, red onion and pickles with a salad
  • Late Night Snack-  Sugar cookie tea

Today I had a bunch of chores to get done and surprised myself when I crossed every one off my to-do list.  Here is what I did after work:

  • Grocery run
  • Costco
  • PetSmart
  • Get tires check and filled with air
  • Wash sheets
  • Get gas

And now I’m waiting for UPS to show up to deliver our bassinet and I think our stroller is coming today as well.  We are one of the last stops for the driver so we don’t normally get out packages until pretty late.  Both items said out for delivery when I checked on their status so I’m crossing my fingers that they come!  If they do, I’m sure I’ll be making Keith set everything up and if they don’t show  up, I’ll be snuggled into the couch watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills from last night!

I’m off to go make myself that cup of tea!  I’ll see you guys in the morning with a pregnancy update!  It will be my first post in the third trimester!  Yes, after tonight I’m officially in the third trimester!  Crazy!  Have a great night!!!

    I love the new look of the blog 🙂 You and me both did our changes recently.

    My week is going by realy slow and I’ve been so out of focus this week. It takes me double the time to finish anything. Ugh…Probably since we just came back from our vacation, feels slow getting back into our usual routine.

    What decaf coffee are you drinking? Do you recommend any brand?

      I use k-cups and get the Green Mountain (I think that is what ‘s its called) brand. I buy the hazelnut flavor and it is so great! I’m not a huge coffee drinking but love the ritual of it every morning, especially since it is getting chilly out!

      Getting back to the swing of things is always so hard after a vacation. I feel like I need a transition week to get back into my routine.
