I ate my weight. At least I feel like I did with all this summertime fun and food happening all around me this whole weekend!
Today was a rest day for me as far as working out goes but let’s talk about yesterday first since I didn’t get around to posting. My mom and I ran 5.5 miles and completed a quick ab routine. Breakfast felt sinful but was healthy and filling as ever – my favorite PB&J overnight oats. I took a picture of them post-swirl. I’m still not sure it does them justice but here ya go:
We packed up and headed to Papa’s Boat (as Keira calls it) for a day on the water. Keira was absolutely BEAT from the aquarium adventure the day before and ended up falling asleep on me in the middle of our boat ride.
By the time Keira woke up, my whole body was cramped up and tummy growling and I was pretty psyched for a stellar lunch I made for myself: leftover coconut shrimp tossed in romaine with baby carrots, hard boiled egg whites and goat cheese in a lite raspberry vinaigrette.
Today was spent in NY at my cousin’s graduation party. It took place at a gorgeous park with a playground that Keira wore herself out on. The food was GREAT and I wish I knew the company who catered it.
At the top is a summer squash casserole – it tasted like a stuffing. There was squash, corn, onions, peppers and some sort of spice mixed in with breading. I’ve got to find a recipe to replicate this because it was way too good. To the right of it was a cold rice salad with tomatoes and green onions. I’m not sure I’ve ever really had cold rice and enjoyed it so I was very pleasantly surprised with this side. A fruit salad and handful of baby carrots completed this meal. I admittedly went back up for seconds on the rice and casserole… yum.
I so wish I took a picture of all the desserts but Keira was climbing on me and stealing bites here and there so I didn’t get a chance to snap any photos except for the one below of the OUTRAGEOUS cake. I had a ridiculous amount of cake, a chocolate chip cookie, a chocolate cookie with some sort of fabulous icing on top and a mini brownie. Let me just say that I don’t even like cake and it was insane good.
Let me also say that I ate all this deliciousness I speak of at 3 PM today. It is now almost 9 and I am STILL full. FULL to my ears!!! I don’t think I’ve eaten that much in a sitting… ever. I’ll be sleeping like a BABY tonight with my tum so full and happy 🙂
And one more thing – since I’m a proud mama and can’t help but love sharing pictures of my Keira, here’s one from today that might make you smile:
Have a splendid evening, everyone. I’ll be hitting the hay pretty soon – Can’t wait to see Mike tomorrow. Guy’s been working like a madman and I’ve been missing him like crazy. The faster I go to sleep, the quicker tomorrow comes!! Night!
