I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We actually got to stay here and relax this weekend! It was wonderful.
Saturday was, as usual, full of football! Annabelle was very skeptical of the Aggies play in the first half.
And then down right shocked by OT!
Luckily, they pulled out a win because Daddy was about to pull all of his hair out!
Sunday, little miss woke up at 3:45 AM for a feeding, and I couldn't go back to sleep. I decided to get a few things done while she was asleep because you never know how naps are going to go with her.
I went on a quick 3 mile run in my new shoes. They felt amazing and by the end of mile 3, I though about taking another lap, but I wanted to tackle the grocery store before she woke up. After a quick shower, I made my list and headed to the store at 5:50 AM. I was literally the first person in when they opened the doors. HEB is normally crazy on Sunday's so the empty store was awesome!
They were out of my normal PB2, so I decided to try PBfit instead. I used it in my oatmeal and the energy bites I made later in the day and was impressed.
I made it home in time to start the laundry, unload the groceries, and enjoy a bowl of oatmeal in peace before the tiny human woke up at 7:15. I call that a win!
The rest of Sunday was spent tackling laundry, running errands and prepping food for the week. Preparing food on Sunday for the week ahead is a huge help when you know you won't always have time to cook during the week. E always grills up a ton of protein on Sunday night, and this Sunday, I got busy baking protein muffins and homemade energy bites.
Since little bit keeps me busy busy, I have found myself grabbing premade protein bars and shakes a lot more than normal lately. Although, these are great sometimes, I don't want to live on processed bars all day every day. In order to cut down on my consumption of packaged food, I have been experimenting with easy to grab baked goodies to keep around the house. One recipe I have fallen in love with are these Chocolate Chip Banana Protein Muffins.
