Happy Hump Day!
I have been in full-out mommy mode lately. I feel like all my time is spent helping with homework, advising on social interactions, reading to the 4-year-old, going to the park, shuttling to soccer games, feeding people, playing catch in the backyard, and just being there for everyone.
It’s exhausting and rewarding all at the same time. I feel like I’m in the thick of things, if that makes sense. We are completely out of the baby and toddler stage and into full-blown boyhood mode.
I like it.
I’m just not sure when it happened.
Anyway, I kept a photo food journal today for What I Ate Wednesday (#wiaw). I’ve been killing it in the food department lately and feeling really good with my choices.
7:45 a.m. – Breakfast
After my morning workout I came home and made eggs for the kids and me. This is a 1 egg + egg white with spinach and bacon sandwich on a mini whole wheat bagel. Ryan had the same and Evan had just egg and avocado cut up.
10:40 a.m. – Morning Snack
My stomach was growling. I didn’t want to eat anything too big as I had a lunch date with a friend so I went with yogurt. This is my new favorite — low-fat Greek yogurt with a sprinkle of cocoa nibs, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds and drizzle of maple syrup. I call it Seedy Yogurt.
12:45 p.m. – Lunch
Lunch date with a friend. We went for sushi! Not pictured here is the salad and spring roll I ate as well.
7 p.m. Dinner.
In the morning I whipped together a marinade for a defrosted pork loin. I put it in a bag with:
- Apple cider vinegar
- Soy sauce
- Fresh garlic, smashed
- Fresh ginger, grated
- Dash of allspice
- Dash of ground cloves
In the evening, before heading to the library with the kids I popped this into the oven.
When I got back…. BOOM!
I threw the pork on the grill and 30 minutes later we were enjoying an awesome dinner together.
That’s it. Great day, right? I think I shall enjoy a square of dark chocolate before bed just ’cause.
