I’m feeling a little low as I write this, having just waved goodbye to my mother and younger brother. We had the best weekend, and even though we got a little off track on the healthy eating (my mom is an awesome cook!), I still managed to lose another pound last week and finish the full T25 Week Four lineup.
So here we are… the Monday two weeks before I go back to work. A is down for a great morning nap, I just finished the day’s workout, and I’m starting to try to imagine a world in which she and I get home from work at dinner time and have to shuffle ourselves into a routine of snuggling, nursing, and still getting a meal on the table. Over the next few days, I’m hoping to post about some of our favorite make ahead meals. Living in a rural area, the takeaway options are nearly non-existent or incredibly unhealthy, so we combat that by making and freezing meals ahead of time to try to help balance evenings when I have to work later than normal. So here’s our lineup for this week:
We Eat/ She Eats Week Five:

- Continue to drink more water … I’m really struggling to get to that 10th glass every day.
- Live in the moment – summer is fading fast!
- Start getting up at 4 a.m. and working out to prepare for the return to work. Sigh.
- Try to get to the blueberry fields.
Hope you’re enjoying a lovely summer Monday!
