This sensational Sunday started a bit groggy. Last night I went to a haunted farm with a friend and her daughter. We didn’t get back until well after 1AM and, of course, the toddler was up bright eyed and busy tailed at 7AM. I made him breakfast and snapped out of it but it took every ounce of energy to get my butt out of bed!
I decided early to make a crock-pot meal for this beautiful October Sunday. So after breakfast I prepared everything for my Beef Stew with Orange Fall Veggies and Orzo. Honestly, it’s what I had so I went with it. It made the house smell delicious ALL day!
Then the toddler and I jammed out while folding the laundry. It’s amazing how much the little guys want to help so I put him to work organizing the socks! It’s too darn cute!
After laundry and a bit of clean up I was off to the gym. To my surprise, the toddler wanted to come so we decided to go as a family. The husband played Basketball, the toddler made some new friends and I hit the bike. Afterwards, the wall was open so I gave it a shot. The medium incline still kicks my butt but I nailed the easy. I will make it up that medium wall. I will! I’m making a date with that wall every Sunday until I do it!
After the gym, we decided to go to lunch and hit a local pizza place. I splurged a bit on pizza and mozzarella sticks. To be honest, my eating has been a bit out of hand all weekend. Not a total catastrophe but I’ve been treating myself to food more then I should. You know, the “ohhh I’ve been so good that extra slice of pizza won’t kill me” or the “It’s just a bag of chips, I’ve worked out today” type of treats. Now I’m not saying they are bad every once it awhile but 3 days in a row and I can feel it becoming a pattern. So tomorrow, I’ll be back to counting and tracking.
After lunch it wasn’t only the toddler napping. ;~) We spent the rest of Sunday pretty lazy, watching Nemo, eating stew and hanging out. MAN I don’t want to go to work tomorrow!!
