I was so glad that I was able to get back to the gym today. I was very happy that my back felt back to normal and I was able to get started on this weeks workouts. It is not very fun to start your first of five days of workouts on Wednesday. But I am motivated and know that I will get my workouts done no matter what. I felt like I did better this week than last Monday and felt like I got a good workout but when I was finished I was frustrated with myself. I knew I had worked out hard but I feel like I could have pushed myself a lot harder. That will be my goal for tomorrow.
Tonight we had dinner out. Well sort of. A very sweet couple from one of our churches invited us over for dinner and of course we accepted. One thing Lew and I love to do is have dinner with families from our churches. It is so fun to go into people’s homes and have a meal with them. The only hard thing about this is the timing. LB and Daisy like to go to bed between 7 and 7:30. We often start our bedtime routine around 6:30. This is not something Lew and I planned on doing with the babies but it is something they like to do. Actually their early bed time is sometimes very inconvenient for us but we make it work. So for dinner tonight we just scheduled it early and it worked out perfectly.
This afternoon we had to replicate yesterday’s yogurt bowl. The only difference was instead of honey Chobani Greek yogurt we used Strawberry Chobani Greek yogurt. It was just as good!
For dinner tonight we had a great spread of different foods and of course I had to try all of it.
Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
Sweet potato fries, baked beans, cranberry sauce (raisins for Daisy)
Don’t you love the crappy angle of my food pictures when I am holding a baby in my lap…it looks a lot like the picture angle from last Wednesday night’s dinner with a baby in my lap
When you finish your workouts do you ever feel like you should have pushed yourself a little harder?
