This morning I was up early with the boys at 7:30am they could not let me sleep in even just a little longer this morning.  But really I guess it was really a sleep in for me since I am usually up by 5:15 am during the week!

This weekend I am taking a little mini break.  I finished the TSS on Friday and thought I would just rest over the weekend and start my new workout on Monday.  Up next for me will be the Club FYM September Workout of the month which is Complexes.  I have reviewed the workout log and watched the How To videos and it looks like a quick but effective workout!  Plus is looks like a good challenge!  I am up for it!

The weather this weekend has been beyond lovely!  Today was another warm and very sunny day…tomorrow is going to be the same way.  It is my day to sleep in tomorrow so I will sleep till probably 9am then I might go for a run when I get up.  I LOVE running outside and tomorrow morning should be perfect for it.  Charging my Garmin just in case!

This morning I was looking in my fridge and noticed I had some produce that needed to be used up and I thought how about juice!


I have not used my juicer in AGES and I even had to dust it off a little…for shame!  I used the rest of my oranges, apples and 4 large carrots for the juice.


Seconds later…fresh and healthy juice.  I also added a splash of lime juice to it.


It was delicious!  I forgot how good fresh juice tastes!  There was enough for me, Jaxin and the hubby when he got up.


Along with my juice I made an omelette.  It does not look very pretty because well…..I am not very skilled at making omelettes but it did taste good.


I used 2 eggs and some liquid egg whites. 

My filling was:


grape tomatoes
green onions
goat cheese


again..not pretty…but GOOD! 

Once the hubby was up I ran upstairs to shower and get dressed.  I needed to run a few errands before the hubby had to be somewhere after lunch.

My morning was exciting let me tell you!  I did the following:

~ Took back and exchanged some printer cartridges
~ Picked up the hubby’s dry cleaning
~ Went to the Co-op and picked up Jaxin’s diapers and also picked up some produce while I was there.
~ Washed my car

Fresh produce of: carrot chips, Rainbow Salad, Red Peppers, Grape Tomatoes, Raspberries, 2 peaches, 2 nectarines and 4 Gala Apples.

By time I got home the boys had already had their lunch so I made a salad for myself.


Big bowl of the green stuff!


In the bowl:

  • Mixed greens
  • celery
  • grape tomatoes
  • cucumber
  • Leftover Turkey Breast

I dressed my salad with a couple spritzes of Balsamic Vinegar and fresh black pepper.


I also added a little lime juice at the last minute.


All dressed…IMG_3369

Good lunch!  I got to sit and eat it and enjoy it for a change.  Most times I am standing at the kitchen counter and helping the boys at the same time.

For an afternoon snack I made the boys a Smoothie!


Peachy Keen Smoothie

makes 2-3 servings

~ 1 cup of coconut water
~ 1 small banana
~ 1 fresh peach peeled and diced
~ 1 cup of frozen Mango
~ 1/2 cup of Plain Yogurt

Put all the ingredients into the blender and blend until you get your desired consistency.


Zaxari testing it out….not sure why he did not pick up the cup..silly boy! Smile


But he loved it!  So did Jaxin.  Jaxin finished his first and tried to come and grab Zaxari’s away…sneaky little kid!

My snack was a mug of green tea and two protein balls.




Tonight I made Bite Sized Meatballs.


Instead of ground beef I used ground turkey.  We had it with Whole Wheat penne.


I added some steamed broccoli to my bowl.  Needed to eat it up.  I also made extra meatballs so I have leftovers for tomorrow.

After supper I cleaned up and went out for a bit by myself.  I take what I can get these days.  The hubby has to work from home tomorrow so I have to watch the boys by myself for most of the day.

I took a little drive to one of my favourite stores…Planet Organic.  I wanted to get a few things you can’t get at the regular grocery store.


Two bottles of Kombucha tea and Mighty Leaf Tea.  Just noticed that I have the French side of the box showing not the English.  It is their White Orchard flavour.  I am sipping on a cup right now and it is very good!  It is peach and melon flavoured white tea.  I also picked up a head of Kale and some coconut flour for some baking I want to do.

On my TO-DO List for tomorrow:

~ Sleep in!
~ Go for a run
~ Meal plan for the week
~ Update Workout Calendar
~ Review Sept WOM – Complexes Workout
~ Laundry – YUCK!
~ Wash walls – again YUCK!  but there are little Zax hand prints everywhere!
