We got a light dusting this morning which is my favorite kind of snow because it doesn’t interfere with roads/driving but everything looks really pretty!
J and I are back on track with morning workouts. The 5:30 am alarm isn’t glorious but let us be honest, we go to bed pretty early so we are still getting sufficient sleep. EXCEPT K has been waking up for a quick snack at 4:45 am so I am borderline, but honestly I haven’t felt too tired. Give me a couple of weeks though…
We bundle up and I do my thing with the Aaptiv app while J usually does his workout on the squat rack.
This morning my workout was 2 circuits of 4 exercises, each done for 30 seconds. Repeated once. Estimated burn= 200 calories.
- Squats, reverse lunges, side lunges+front lunges, plank jacks
- Mountain climbers, bicycle crunch, double crunch, push ups+shoulder taps.
I finished up with 15 minutes on the bike and then a good stretch.
Last night I made orange chicken in the slow cooker with teriyaki broccoli (just sautéed frozen broccoli with this sauce and some cornstarch) and brown rice. I will definitely make this again. Every time I make something in the slow cooker I am reminded how easy it makes things!
K got some Christmas pjs from Grandma which he has been sporting. He is obsessed with the Christmas tree.
I read an interesting article on “spicing up” your baby’s food. It is supposed to help them not need salt/sugar in the future for food to taste good. We have only tried nutmeg so far as they recommend 4 days before trying each spice. He is pretty pumped about food in general so I don’t see this going poorly ha. For some reason he likes jarred food from the grocery store better than any food I make *eye roll*, can anyone think of a reason why?? Texture??
We are gearing up for Christmas as we have 4 days of family gatherings in a row. Fingers crossed K is feeling jolly!
Hope your holidays are happy so far!
