We had our home inspection on Monday, and there was nothing too major so that was a relief! There’s a few things we’ll request to get fixed, but nothing that is alarming enough to compromise our decision. Yesterday involved a couple errands and some quality time with my grandparents who are in town from Wisconsin. They are here visiting for a couple weeks, so Hunter and I are soaking up our time with them before they head back to the midwest.
In honor of What I Ate Wednesday (thanks for the link-up Jenn!), I thought I’d share my eats from yesterday with you. It’s kinda fun to get some new ideas for meals and snacks, and it gives you a little peak into a part of my life that I don’t talk about everyday.
breakfast – 6:30 AM
I decided to switch things up from my usual oatmeal and toasted up some Trader Joe’s multigrain waffles and topped them with Chobani yogurt and fruit. Delicious, easy, and filling = perfect breakfast in my book!
coffee break – 9:00 AM
Hunter and I went out to run a couple errands, so we stopped at Starbucks to grab a quick pick-me-up. My favorite warm weather Starbucks drink is a Coffee Frappuccino Light!
snack – 11:00 AM
I made up for my lack of nut butter at breakfast with a big ol’ spoonful spatula-full of Peanut Butter & Co. The Bee’s Knees peanut butter. They recently sent me this fun peanut butter spatula spreader along with a couple jars of The Bee’s Knees that I’ve been loving on anything and everything lately (and apparently by itself too). Yummmm.
lunch – 1:30 PM
Hunter and I went over to my dad and stepmom’s house for lunch to visit with my grandparents and stepmom. I had a turkey and muenster sandwich on rye with Sun Chips, a pickle, strawberries, grape tomatoes, and baby carrots on the side. A couple small cookies and some jellybeans were also eaten after this photo.
My mother-in-law had some mini cupcakes leftover from Easter, so I’ve been helping her polish them off. They surely can’t go to waste!
snack – 9:00 PM
I was feeling a little hungry before bed, so I enjoyed a bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats. I think I’m back in a cereal phase again. I’ve been loving it lately for a mid afternoon or evening snack!
Switching gears here to some fitness talk!
Lately, I’ve been really into quick and efficient workouts that I can do at home. I’ll throw in a run here and there, but I’ve been especially enjoying strength based workouts and HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts. I wanted to share a fun tabata-style cardio workout that I tested out last week. Tabata-style workouts are quick and efficient, and this one in particular can easily be done in the comfort of your own home with no equipment.
Please consult your doctor or physician if you are beginning a new exercise or workout regimen. Not all of my workouts are suitable for everyone.
Here are a few how-to videos for some of the lesser known exercises:
