Nothing beats heading over to my future sister in laws house after work and getting my hands on this little feller.
Of course once I get there I have to do a little photo session.
He has finally got to the age where he has started to smile. It will just melt your heart.
At this point I think he was probably thinking, really Aunt Mel? How many pictures are you going to take?
So I moved to video :)
But after a while I think we wore him out. So sweet.
Next I want to share a few of my meals I have had the past couple of days.
First up my breakfast yesterday.
For me breakfast is my most important part of the day. What I have for breakfast decides how the rest of my meals and day will go.
Yesterday I had a 2 egg omelet with spinach (no cheese) and a large banana. This is such a filling breakfast and it's under 300 calories. With a breakfast like this I am set up for success the rest of the day.
Next up, my snacking.
Snacking can kill an entire day of healthy eating, well for me at least. I have gotten really good with packing snacks for work because let's face there are always yummy looking snacks in the office. I feel like it is someones birthday every day because there is always cake around. A snack that I really love packing is red peppers and hummus. It is crunchy, low fat/ calorie and well just plain delicious.
Yesterday after work I headed over to a cookout. Now eating healthy at a cookout can be tricky because you don't prepare your own food. So I stopped by the grocery store before and grabbed a couple of things to add to my dinner to make sure I stayed on track. You know what I'm talking about, at cookouts there are always those yummy looking sides like mac and cheese, rolls, cookies, etc. So last night I ended up just cutting a small piece off of the fiances steak and then added some healthy sides to the plate.
Last but not least I wanted to share that it is RACE season for me. I am not a runner outside when it is cold. You will not find me running outside in the cold unless someone is chasing me. So now that it is warming up I am getting super excited to get back to races. My first race of the season is going to be April 26th. My goal is to at least run 1 5k or 10k a month and then at the end of the year run my 1st half marathon. So if you know of any good races let me know :) I also would love some running partners!!
HAPPY FRIDAY!! I have an exciting weekend ahead of me so make sure you check out Monday!!
