Good Morning! Before I get to today’s post, I want to say that my heart goes out to everyone in FL and all the countries affected by Hurricane Irma. We are thinking of you. I almost felt guilty walking outside in in the sun and in cooler Fall temperatures this weekend knowing what’s going on south of us. And today is also 9/11 a time to remember all those lives lost years ago.
After the first week of school last week, I was really looking forward to a restful and relaxing weekend. And that it was. Once leaving work on Friday I headed home to finish cleaning house and get changed for Tom’s football game. They were away at another county high school and won 21-0. Wahoo! This picture was taken during their team picnic a few weeks ago.
Saturday morning I was up early as Tom headed into film and decided to enjoy a long run in the cooler temperatures. The sun was hot, but the air stayed cool enough for me not to mind the sunshine. 8 miles later I foam rolled, showered, and warmed up some paleo blueberry muffins for breakfast. While eating I made my grocery list, and watched the latest updates on the hurricane. I get most of my meal ideas from Instagram or Pinterest and make my grocery list around what I plan to eat for each meal.
Then I went to Target and Safeway to stock up on groceries and essentials. I’m planning a healthy pantry post for you this week as I feel fully stocked on pretty much all my essentials and I’m excited to share.
Then it was just relaxing and watching some college football for the rest of the afternoon/evening. We took a break to prepare dinner, grilled wings and some ‘nacho’ style roasted potatoes I just improvised. And I made Arman’s Chocolate Swirl Protein Cookies for dessert.
Sunday morning I started the day with some yoga. I did a Grokker video and used our heater to try to create a ‘hot’ room, it was somewhat successful. After yoga and a Vital Proteins Shake I worked on the laundry, took some pictures, did meal prep, and started this post before needing lunch. Leftover potatoes with sunny eggs, will that combo ever get old?
We then watched some Football and hung around the house before making my Jamaican Jerk Chicken, rice, and some roasted veggies for dinner. And remember when I told you I have been craving brownies every weekend, yep they happened again using this recipe for Chewy Fudgy Homemade Brownies.
