I've been keeping up with my exercising. I really don't like it. I actually kind of hate it. As in, I find some of my first thoughts of the day be something like, "Dang it... It's a new day which means I have to fit in another workout." But I want to be strong. And healthy. And energized for the active Hunnybuns. And after growing a baby in my once-tight abdomen, a sweaty workout is what I need to put in.
And that means Jillian and I have been having some rockin' one-on-one time together. I think I have her entire Shred DVD memorized. Except for level 3. Woo! I still get winded with level 2. I have an amazing group of momma's on My Fitness Pals that have been incredibly supportive and encouraging. We all had our little baby within a month of each other. One of ladies suggested to me a website full of figure-friendly recipes. Skinnytaste.com
Y'all, I've started cooking. I used to love it. But with my pregnancy and subsequent nausea issues, it just kinda died away and fast food became so much more appealing. Here's a few dishes we've had over the past week. These are tried and true! You'll love it!
Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad
Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Vietnamese Shaking Beef (Bo Luc Lac) w/ lime dipping sauce
Overnight oatmeal smoothies! My favorite is the Pineapple Coconut Oatmeal Smoothie. I ended up not using the vanilla and chia seeds (I didn't feel like heading to the grocery store!) but also added spinach. Crazy tasty! But I'm definitely going to start adding the chia seeds for it's great health benefits and thickening agent. I really don't like runny smoothies. Pina Colada's anyone?
Oh yeah, and I've been getting my craft on with my apothecary jars. I haven't been feeling like making anything... and having a zero $ budget will put a damper on my Pinterest finds. But after Easter, I switched up these jars and put together a cute Spring and 4th of July version. My spring set was full of bright colored candies. For the July 4th jars I used great northern beans, red kidney beans and black beans (they look blue!) and flowers (I didn't take an updated pic!)
I love it I love it!
I love it I love it!
Sweet, teething Savannah calls the shots when it comes to church and nap time. I got some great tips from my Instagram friends to help with balancing my activeness in church and a grumpy tired infant.
Guess which toe I sprang. Now it's all sorts of puffy blue and red. It pairs well with my cute fresh pedi, don't you think?
Yours truly, Me
