A Day In Our Lives + Wild Zora Giveaway

A Day In Our Lives + Wild Zora Giveaway

Oh hey there!  How’s life treating you all these days?  Yes, we’re still alive, and still busy as ever!  Which means blogging has still been pretty non existent.  Still, I’m okay with that for the time being.  Family comes first!

I figured since we haven’t chatted in awhile, I’d pop in and share what a day in my life looks like lately.  Of course it’s always changing as things just do when you have kids but just for fun here’s a peak at our Tuesday 🙂

4:50 – Tuesday’s start early for me as I teach the 6:00am class at Burn-IT.  It just so happened that my little muffin woke up at 4:49 and wanted to eat so perfect timing!  We aren’t on a firm schedule as far as eating/sleeping goes.  Most nights he wakes 1-2 times to eat.  Sometimes like this past Monday he wakes more frequently and wants to eat all the time…  I blame the full moon for that night 🙁  Anyway, I feed him, then get some coffee, check in with my challenge groups and head out the door for class.

6:00 – Workout and coach a 45 minute HIIT class.  We did 15 minutes of treadmill intervals, 1 min at a jog, 1 minute at a push pace, 45 seconds at an all out sprint.  Then did a floor circuit which left us drenched in sweat!

7:00 – Get home and quickly shower while The Hubby finishes up breakfast with The Love Nugget.  Blend up a pumpkin pie green smoothie for me (and some for The Love Nugget) then get the Muffin Man up and get us all dressed.

7:45 – out the door to take The Love Nugget to school.  Drop off is 7:50 which is WAY too early in my opinion…

8:00 – Back home to nurse my little guy real fast before heading out to run some errands.

8:50 – Meet a friend for coffee and some shopping 🙂

BTW I’m not normally a huge Starbucks fan but when those red cups roll out along with my favorite peppermint latte’s I can’t help myself.  My treat drink is usually a almond milk latte with one pump of peppermint.  Yum!

11:15 – Pick up The Love Nugget from school, chat with some other moms and his teacher then homeward bound.

11:30 – Nurse the little muffin then help The Love Nugget get his lunch while heating up mine.

PB and J, carrots, mandarin for him, baked cod, rice and vegetables for me 🙂  Prepped ahead makes for a fast lunch!
12:30 – Put the baby to sleep then search for plane tickets while The Love Nugget plays outside.

1:15 – Finally book our tickets to Cabo in February then call the Love Nugget in to take a rest.  We read a story together then he reads some books on his own.

1:30 – While he rests, I clean up, put away laundry and get some work done.

2:00 – Love Nugget wakes up and we color then he plays outside while I get some stuff done on the computer.

2:45 – My little muffin wakes up and I feed him then we head out to run a few errands.

We eat a quick snack on the way home of mandarins and Wild Zora Jerky.

Speaking of that snack, we’ve been obsessed with both mandarins since it’s their peak season right now, and Wild Zora bars.  I’ve mentioned before how much we enjoy these grass fed meat and veggie bars on my Instagram but wanted to share here with you all.  Wild Zora  was created by a health conscious woman named Zora who wanted a healthy snack to feed her family.  One that was free of grains or gluten or soy or added sugar or MSG or Nitrates.  This was hard to find so she decided to create one herself.  There was born Wild Zora bars!  A delicious combination of grass-fed meats and veggies.

Flavors include;

Parmesan Beef Bars with Kale, Tomato 

Chili Beef Bars with Kale, Apricot, Cayenne Pepper

BBQ Beef Bars with Kale, Tomato, Red Bell Pepper

Curry Masala Turkey Bars with Spinach, Dates, Cardamom
Mediterranean Lamb Bars with Spinach & Turmeric
A delicious snack I can happily feed my family and myself 🙂
4:15 ish – Get home and feed the little muffin again then get help The Love Nugget build with his fort boards.

He was really focused on making a letter L.
5:00 – Get dinner together, tonight is soup with broccoli, chicken, carrots and butternut squash.

6:00 – After cleaning up, it’s time for bath time!

Then he eats again while The Love Nugget watches his show.  Little man falls asleep when he’s done.  It’s a little early for him to go to bed but oh well.

img_6344

He doesn’t take a pacifier and isn’t a thumb sucker but enjoys those two fingers…

7:00 – The hubby gets home from work and takes The Love Nugget upstairs to read stories and get ready for bed.  So I watch a little Gilmore Girls on Netflix and relax on the couch.  Everyone kept telling me to watch it and now that I have I can’t stop!

7:30 – Hubby comes downstairs so we hang out and watch some DVR’d This Is Us.  Love that show!

8:30 – I head to bed since I know I’ll be waking up to feed my little muffin in a few hours… He usually wakes around 1:00 and 4:30.  Someday we’ll sleep train…

Now for something fun!  As mentioned above, I’m giving away some of our favorite healthy snack lately.  Wild Zora Bars!  Follow the instructions below and enter to win!

An Average Tuesday

An Average Tuesday

Hi guys!

I haven’t done a day in the life post for awhile so thought I’d share a peak into a full Tuesday for me lately.  Including some food because it is Wednesday and we tend to talk about food on Wednesdays around here 🙂

5:30 – Tuesday and Thursday I get to “sleep in”.  Meaning The Hubby’s alarm doesn’t go off at 4:40 waking me up.  I say sleep in sarcastically because my internal alarm clock still goes off between 5:00 and 5:30.  Lately every morning I wake up at 4:11 or 4:12.  It’s really starting to freak me out actually.  Thankfully I go right back to sleep but it’s so weird!

5:45 – I put on some workout clothes and head downstairs.  I seem to wake up hungry most mornings but don’t want to eat too much before a workout.  So I munch on one of my Nut Butter Bites and drink a big glass of water.

A Day in the Life on a Tuesday

A Day in the Life on a Tuesday

Good morning!

I think yesterday was the first day in over a week that I actually felt back to normal.  Between my aunts passing and the stomach flu that knocked me down I’ve not been myself.  While I’m obviously still recovering from losing my aunt, I can say that I finally feel I’ve kicked the last of the flu bugs out of my system!   Yay!

I had set an alarm to remind myself to start documenting my day for a full day in the life post but of course, it didn’t go off.  Luckily I remembered after returning home from the gym 🙂  So here’s a peak into our Tuesday this week!

5:00 am – alarm goes off for the gym.  I get up, drink a little of my AMRAP beet energizer and head out the door.

Day in the life – Hotel edition

Day in the life – Hotel edition

I used to hear about celebs living in hotels and think, “How glamorous!”  Why I thought that?  I don’t know… What’s glamorous about sleeping on beds many other people have slept in.  Or sitting on furniture that’s been sat on millions of times by god knows who.  Or not having many of your own items in your possessions with you to use at your leisure?  Well I guess they are typically living in pretty nice places where everything is practically at their fingertips but still… glamorous?   I definitely think differently now that we’re living in one!

However, we are making the best of it.  I will say that it helps a lot that the hotel we are staying at (Staybridge Suites) has really gone above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible.  We’ve been moved a few times but mainly to accommodate and get us into bigger rooms as they became available.  They also adjusted our rate since we are staying so long and have been more than friendly even as we moved in half our house, a kid, and a dog 🙂  Oh and they serve hot breakfast daily (which works well for The Hubby), have full kitchens in each suite and have free happy hour Tuesday – Thursday with snacks, beer and wine.  Not to mention an indoor pool, fitness center and BBQ area where we’ve been cooking most of our dinners.
