Sorry it's been a bit quiet around here, I was busy at work and dealing with my tax screw up, which I got all fixed thanks to a wonderful friend who just happens to be a kick ass CPA. Going back through all of 2013 was enough to get me on board for keeping better records of my finances. Anyways, lesson learned and I'm glad I won't have to sell the bald one to stay out of debtors jail.
He's a total keeper.
This one is dying to ride her new big girl bike, but first she must master her little bike with no training wheels. Well Daddy has been working late so the neighbor boy helped, then I tried to help, and let's just say it's not going well. We can't ride in the grass, fire ants are everywhere and you DON'T want to fall in to those suckers. Someone suggested taking off the pedals so I'm trying that next, I can't handle the drama.
Dusted off the trusty red coupe for him, he won't use his feet to power it, but he'll mess with the door for a good 45 minutes happily.
The big 6th birthday party is happening tomorrow, the Poppy Locks cake looks so freaking amazing I can't wait to get me a big ole hunk of strawberry awesomeness.
I'm getting bored with my hairs, again. It's faded and blah, but just now when I was looking on my Pinterest hair board I realized it's been 33 weeks since I've had it done! yikes.
Here's what I did last time, a medium brunette with a balayage technique for some blonde on the ends. I think I want to go a tad darker this go round.
Maybe like this...
If I copy her hair can I get her body? She's probably the one woman Oliver would leave me for, hahahha, in his dreams!
Maybe a bit stronger on the blonde ends, but I'm not going to cut it just yet although it's getting to be a ton of work.
I'm in need of a new meal plan, I've been eating the same things on rotation for a while now and I just feel blah and blah about all of it, so I found some ideas for breakfast and lunch I'm going to give a go.
Breakfast: Breakfast of Champions – high protein omelettes with chicken and veggies
I am going to make a huge batch of this and split it up into 5 tupperwares for taking to work all week.
Lunch: Tuna Mix with Crackers or whole wheat bread.
While I dearly loved my Turkey Meatballs I want to try switching to something with less fat and higher carbs, so I think I need to add in items I can eat with bread. I actually struggle getting in the carbs I need because carbs with out fats are no fun at all. I need to get in more things like sweet potatoes, I burned myself out on them, but I think it's been long enough.
Dinners: Honey Lime Chicken - Chicken Pizza Crust >> going to give these a shot. Nothing crazy at night, mostly I do chicken with a veggie because we have too much going on and I would rather be kissing on the baby then spending 30 minutes cooking a dinner. The skewers I could probably have Oliver prep before I get home and the chicken crust may be a Friday night meal, but that just leaves Tue - Thur on the boring stuff.
I'm obsessed with my Oikos yogurt - topped with granola or strawberries and melted Cookie Butter.
Popcorn is a must - lots of volume for a little bit of macros. I think one cup has like less than 5 carbs on the kind I use. Angie's Popcorn has some amazing flavors, but they are higher in fat so I can't have as much.
I don't use protein bars or shakes very often anymore, really only on the weekends if I'm in a hurry.
