Hi guys! Who else is loving fresh fruit right now? Peaches especially are one of my summer faves… I’ve been enjoying them all week with Greek yogurt or cottage cheese and usually some berries as well. So refreshing and satisfying as a snack!
I’m also loving fruit on salads! Nice way to add a little extra pop of flavor. We had some grilled chicken leftover from earlier this week so yesterday for lunch I threw together a big salad with the chicken, strawberries, feta, cucumber, green pepper, and a homemade vinaigrette (olive oil, dijon mustard, lime juice, cilantro, salt, pepper). Hit the spot! I had some crackers on the side for crunch and extra carbs.
As for fitness this week, it has been an active one! Gotta take advantage of these cool mornings before the humidity comes back in full force, right?! I met my friend Karen down in Georgetown bright and early this morning for some chatting via our running shoes. It was so pretty out!
We did some running and some walking – I was tired and not feeling up for running the whole time and luckily she wasn’t looking for anything intense either so it worked out well. 🙂
Such a treat to catch up with her on this beautiful morning. Thanks for getting me out there Karen!
Yesterday morning I got in my weekly workout date with the girls! I don’t usually do back to back early morning weekday workouts these days because I don’t want to overdo it given I’m not getting super stellar sleep, but it was the timing that worked out this week for everyone so I went with it. 🙂
We hit up one of our usual fave strength training classes. It was a hard one – definitely feeling it in my legs today because we did a lot of squats and lunges! Oof. My arms are sore, too – it’s good though because Riese is in a phase right now where she wants to jump up and down in your lap all day while you hold her/help her jump, so I need to make sure my arms are super strong, especially as she gets heavier! 🙂
I’ll leave you with a photo of my little love – she’s looking so BIG and grown up nowadays, ahh! Part of me is like noooo, slow down, it’s happening too quickly! But it’s so fun to see her grow and change so much every day. I can’t wait to take her on more and more adventures as she gets bigger! We just switched her last weekend to sitting in the actual stroller vs. the carseat and she LOVES it – so much to look at!
Have a nice weekend, and I’ll see you guys back here on Monday!
