Woof. Ok, so the day was a bit to a rough start since I only got about 5 hours of sleep. Staying out late the night before absolutely did me in and I could NOT function in the morning. It was worth it, but man oh man I don’t think I could do that again for a long while.
I somehow still did my workout, even though I have no idea where I had the energy to get it done. Wes and I played a lot and read a lot of books, so it was a pretty chill day. We even had matching stripes!
We had leftover spaghetti pie for dinner and watched Trainwreck before heading to bed. The movie was a lot slower and a bit more depressing than I thought it would be. Meh.
Oh, and remember how I mentioned in my From the Week post that I went to my spin studio to pick something up? Well…..
The studio purchased new bikes so I bought one of their old ones. Best part is: the exact one I ended up with was purchased for the studio only 1.5 years ago and never even put to use! I found out when I got it home that because of that, the belt just needed some greasing so once we got that done (WD40), it was ready to go! Just have to buy a mat to put underneath it and it will be moved into our movie room so I can spin and watch TV. Because: #priorities.
I felt 352039572039572% better after getting a full night’s sleep! I changed up my pancake breakfast a bit by adding some pumpkin pie spice to the mix and topping them with pb2 sauce. PB2 and pancakes are good on their own, but I just didn’t LOVE this combo. Maybe it’s because I have a gross addiction to pure maple syrup? Yeah, probably. Next time I’m just sticking with plain ol’ pancakes ‘n syrup.
While Wes took his morning nap, I ran to the store to pick up some more squeeze packs for him. The boy is a MONSTER and eats almost 3 a day PLUS milk PLUS oatmeal. After he woke up and ate, we headed to the Y for his pool class. This one was my turn and it was super fun because they had big float pads for the babies to sit on, and we did a lot of ‘running’ in the pool- rather than just bobbing around and dunking them.
We hit up Costco (per usual) after the class, then headed home to snack/unwind/do random shit around the house.
While Tyler ran a few errands, I whipped up a batch of Double Chocolate Chip Swirl Cookies.
Yup, they’re pretty much the best. I use Sally’s recipe for chocolate chip cookies all the time (I tweak it a bit), and this slight change-up was still pretty easy to make and very tasty! I underbaked them too so they’re nice and gooey- the way all cookies should be.
For some reason, the afternoon pretty much disappeared and before I knew it, it was dinner time! Tyler made a FREAKING DELICIOUS meal of steak, caesar salad, garlicky mushrooms and roasted potatoes. I could eat this every damn day.
And of course, more Wes time.
After he went to bed, we watched Amazing Race and caught up on Walking Dead. Holy cow is this season intense or what? I had so much anxiety watching and now I’m afraid of the dark and zombies in my house.
Tyler was on baby duty while I busted out my workout in the morning- sometimes cardio/plyo can absolutely kick my ass when I haven’t done it for a couple of days, so today’s workout left me with jell-o legs. My favorite. Then: breakfast! Also my favorite.
Since it was Sunday, that means football was on alllllll day. And I can confirm that there are now two males in my household who are obsessed.
He stares forever at the screen when football is on! He’s also been perfecting his rollovers- funny kid can roll from back to front no problem, but still hasn’t got the hang of the other way around. I’m also trying to snap as many gummy smiles as possible before the inevitable first tooth makes its appearance.
While Wes took his afternoon nap, I took the dogs for a long walk while it was still light out. Our walks during the week are always in the dark (thanks WINTER) because I have to wait for Tyler to get home. For those, I get to now rock an awesome headlamp. You know, for safety. It’s totally sexy.
Before leaving, I sliced up some apples and put them in the oven to make apple chips. Two and a half hours later, I got a beautiful bowl of chips that were devoured in approximately two and a half seconds. NOMS.
Tyler fed Wes some solids while I laid in the tub (terrible husband, right?) and watched another episode of Master of None. Is anyone watching it? I think it’s hilarious. I want to post like 235923 gifs, but I think the show is too new for any gifs to exist on the internet. Plus, I’m too lazy to make a gif myself.
We had pulled pork quesadillas for dinner. Pulled pork is one of my favorites, but what made this pork even tastier was throwing it in the crockpot with ROOT BEER instead of broth. Took it to a whole other level. So yum.
In case you were wondering, 99.9% of my meals are on the floor next to Wes. Case in point: (HAHAHA SEE WHAT I DID THERE? It’s part of my blog name. Ahhh actually, that’s lame) see similar photo with a slightly different angle..
How was your weekend??
Those cookies look good! I can’t keep stuff like that in my apartment since I live alone so it’s better you than me to make them. LOL
Glad you enjoyed spinning!
Yeah, it’s hard to have them all laying around the house- and I am NOT one to put baked goods in the freezer!
So jealous of your new to you spin bike! When we have a house (or a kid) someday, that is on my priority list for at home workout equipment.
I think since I don’t have a gym membership, it will really keep me sane throughout the winter months when we can’t get outside for walks. I will NOT go to the mall everyday just to stretch my legs! And it’s a nice change up from body-weight cardio exercises.
Wes is just so cute! His little chubby thighs in that last photo… I die! Makes me excited to meet my own baby boy.
Those cookies look really delicious. And the steak/Cesar salad combo… Those are actually the two main cravings I’ve had this pregnancy!
Classy cravings! Hahah. Mine were donuts and bagels and fruit by the foots.
Sounds like a great weekend! All your food looks delicious! I used to eat all my meals on the floor too. Have you tried giving Wes a straw to drink out of? Just wondering because around that time I started introducing smoothies which are a great way to introduce more fruits/veggies/calories than the pouches. (Translation: I was too cheap to let him have more than one a day haha) Or you could buy those reusable squeeze pouches, but I could never be bothered to use or clean those things.
I think I’ll try that soon! Any particular straw or should I just go raid the nearest starbucks for a stash 🙂
Haha! We really like the playtex straw cups…but once Wes gets the hang of it (which usually doesn’t take long), then he should be able to drink out of any straw…although the baby straw cups limit how much liquid comes up at once. Just make sure whichever cup you buy, it’s not rock hard plastic – you want to be able to squeeze it a bit to help the liquid come up. 🙂
I just bought one of the plaited straw cups. He just chews on the straw. Hopefully he gets it!
I started watching Master None too! It’s so funny!!! I actually LOL’d for real which never happens when it comes to most tv & movies.
Please tell me how I can get amazing abs like you.
I DIED in the first episode when the kid yells FARTS to him! I am loving every single episode.
Apparently these abs (Which are so new to me) are a result of eating a lot of baked goods and carrying a billionty pound baby around (seriously though, I drink a gallon+ of water each day and get AT LEAST 8 hours of sleep every night. I swear it helps)
Sounds like a great weekend. I want all of your food. And your abs.
Haha, well I’m weaning Wes from breastfeeding, so we’ll see how much longer these abs actually stick around. I tend to gain my weight back in my stomach, thigh and behind.
Sounds like a good weekend! How is Wes liking swimming? And why did I think Tyler had bought you a membership for the yoga/spin place? Working out at home is way handier now though!
Ps- I’m starting to believe that you don’t own any shirts 😉 haha
I don’t. Well I do, but 99% of them have barf stains, so I just don’t bother anymore.
That’s awesome you got a spin bike!!! I would LOVE one although I have no where to put it and hate spin unless someone is motivating me to move my ass lol!! PS Apple chips… how? I want to make them!!
I downloaded a ton of songs one of my old instructor used to use and go based on tempo and some routines he used to do- helps that the songs are longer, so it makes the workouts more bearable. And now that I can do it with a TV in front of me…MAGIC! I’d love to have a treadmill, but I don’t think I could put it in our basement because the ceilings are a bit low. Apple chips: slice very thin, sprinkly with cinnamon.sugar mix, bake at 200 degrees for one hour, flip, bake for another hour or until crispy to touch. VOILA!
I would love to have a spin bike at home- such a great gym addition! Can you make me cookies, please? I’ll snuggle with Wes and give you wine 🙂
I just need to buy a sturdy mat so I can put it in our media room!
How awesome to have a spin bike at home!!! I want all your food as always. And I’ll take your abs. I am done with feeling flubby.
I’m guessing in 2.5 seconds you’ll have abs again!
So cool you bought a spin bike!! Those are a really good brand as well – I’ve used them at my gym before 🙂 also, I’ve been eying up masters of none, I think I’ll have to check it out!
Yeah, it’s a pretty decent one. Couldn’t beat the price, either. Now if only my fitbit would pick up on the ‘steps’ i take with it!
