No alarms on the weekend, but I was up before 7!
No run today, so I hit up my YouTube and did a couple of Popsugar Fitness videos. Check out my Tuesday Training video page HERE!
After my workout, Jagger and I walked to the mailbox to pick up the previous day's mail.
Trip and I got to pulling weeds in the front garden while Robert and my dad finished staining our front door.
The mutt supervised.
I didn't get around to breakfast until 10 a.m. on this day, and I'm more than happy to eat that late. It helps keep me focused on my food plan for the day. I have been eating Special K Protein Cereal with almond milk for breakfast.
While I ate breakfast, I planned out my day of meals. I like to budget all of my meals first so that I know what I'm working with in regards to snacks throughout the day. If you're interested in learning more about My Fitness Pal, read my tutorial HERE.
I checked over my to-do list for the day, and then the kids and I headed out for some errands.
What was supposed to be a quick trip to Target turned into a venture into Old Navy, Bath & Body Works, PetCo, and Target!
Came in for dishwasher tablets and white nail polish - left with this!
We finally made it home for lunch. I've been eating overnight oats for my lunch as it keeps me full longer. You can see my recipe HERE.
After lunch, the kids played, Robert watched shows on the DVR, and I caught up on blog work and emails.
This kid hopped on the couch and asked to read some more chapters of Mercy Watson to me.
Then, I did some of my own reading!
I moved to the kitchen for a snack of Boom Chicka Pop and some more magazine time.
I think most people would say their least favorite chore is laundry, but I vote dishes as mine!
I got some mom time and headed to a few of my favorite places. I love how many stores and restaurants we have so close to us!
When I got home, the plan was for me to write out my grocery list and then hop in the pool. My computer had other plans and decided to do one of those hour long updates!
We finally made it outside for some pool time and hit up the jacuzzi!
I hopped out to make dinner. It was an empty the refrigerator night, so the boys had shrimp and alfredo pasta while the girls had plain Jane alfredo pasta. Surprisingly, it was a big winner!
After dinner, this girl got a purple pedicure and a red, white, and blue manicure for the 4th of July!
We finally got around to reading Matilda.
Trip and I picked microwave s'mores for dessert while the Roo had Greek yogurt with some fixings.
The kids headed off to bed to watch The Lion King, and Robert and I settled in to finally watch Hidden Figures.
I checked over my lists and added a few more things and called it a night!
Not the most exciting day you've ever seen, but I'll take it over a bad day any day! Tomorrow is my Doodle's 8th birthday, so I'm going to be doing a special post on him and foregoing my usual Try It Thursday link-up. I'll still be sure to include some of his favorite recipes in the post! See you soon!
