Day in the Life

Hi guys! I thought I would mix it up and do a day in the life post today… I always love reading these on other blogs and I know you guys enjoy them, too!

This day in the life is from one of my mommy days at home with Riese (I work Mon/Tues/Thurs and get to be home with her Weds/Fri).

Here’s what we were up to all day on Wednesday of this week!

6:30am: Wake up! Can’t fall back asleep (I often get up at 5:45 or 6 for workouts, so I have a hard time sleeping much later on my off days) so I read in bed for a little bit before I hear Riese moving around. 

7am: Riese is up! Matt is about to head out the door for an early meeting, so he goes in to change her and say good morning before passing her off to me. 

7:15am: Nurse Riese, then head downstairs and start making breakfast while Riese clings to my legs. 

7:45am: Breakfast! Terrible photo, but we both have fried eggs (runny yolk for me, cooked yolk for her) and PB toast with some hemp seeds sprinkled on top for extra omega 3s and protein. 

Riese eats most of her toast and a bite or two of the eggs, which I finish off for her. ;)

All the Burritos + Walks

Morning, guys! I'm officially going to take the time once a month or so to stock my freezer with make-ahead breakfast burritos. It's so nice to have them to grab as either a snack or a meal! Sometimes on more hectic mornings I'd find I was waiting too long to eat, so it has been really helpful to have something filling and FAST on hand. I've been Continue Reading …

meal prep party how to do

Hi guys! As you may have seen on my Instagram stories, yesterday I attended a meal prep party hosted by my friend Jackie! A meal prep party is exactly what it sounds like: a bunch of people getting together and prepping a ton of meals. Jackie hosted her first one of these a couple months ago, and I was super intrigued by it, so when she Continue Reading …

Friday Randomness

vegetarian enchiladas

Dear enchiladas: you are awesome. Why had it been so long since we made you?! Matt and I enjoyed these earlier this week, and I had the leftovers for breakfast (yes, breakfast - savory breakfasts are my jam lately - anyone else?) the next day, too. They were a Blue Apron dinner but very similar to my Sweet Potato Black Bean Veggie Enchiladas Continue Reading …

Prepping Ingredients for Awesome Lunches

You know what has been getting old? Having the same lunches over and over again. Dinners in our house generally feel under control and have some good variety -- we do Blue Apron or Sun Basket (<- FYI those are both affiliate links for deals on your first boxes if you are interested) for 3 dinners each week, and then I like testing new Continue Reading …

Weekend Adventures

postpartum running

Yesterday, I got out for my first weekend run in 3 weeks! I was in a solid routine where I always did a longer (for me right now - so like 3 to 5 miles) run on Sundays with friends, but last weekend was the polar vortex (windchills in the negative temps? sorry, not feeling that hardcore), and the weekend before we were buried in snow! It Continue Reading …

Eats + Exercise from the Week

Hi guys! It has been a weird weather week over here - warm and rainy yesterday, but REALLY cold earlier in the week! On Tuesday, I enjoyed an early lunch break and took our dog for a quick couple mile jog to get some fresh air after mostly being indoors over the long weekend. There was a really icy wind, but the sun made a huge difference and we Continue Reading …
