Today I left the house at 5:55 AM and do not get home until 7:45 PM. It is going to be a LONG day. Since today is sheer chaos, I have decided to post everything I ate yesterday. This is a pretty good example of my daily eats.
At 5:20 AM, I fixed a banana coconut milk smoothie. I muffled the blender with a giant blanket so I would not wake up Chase and all of our neighbors. It worked surprisingly well!
This consists of:
1 1/3 frozen bananas
1 1/2 cup unsweeetened coconut milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Each morning I take care of three kids and help them get ready for school. There mom leaves for work early, so I work two hours each morning from 6-8 AM. This is the same family mentioned in THIS post.
At 7:30 I gobbled up some almonds in order to have some energy before my run.
I typically head straight to the gym and run. Today I did 6 miles. I am still super sore from the race so I am hoping to get rid of some lactic acid.
Post-workout (10:30) I had a tangelo. It was AMAZING. I have been craving citrus, so I am happy oranges are coming back!
Monday's are my easy day and I have a couple of hours to run errands and clean the house/do laundry. Yesterday I did the latter! The house now sparkles!
I fixed lunch around noon and had:
Apple slices with Almond Butter
Chocolate Chips! :)
Then I headed to the twinnies house. I also take care of two 13-month-old twins. I have been with them since they were 2 weeks old. They are the girls in the tutus in THIS post. I did not show their face for obvious reasons. But their little bums are too cute, as well!
This month I have off from teaching, which is actually perfect because I have needed to work almost double hours with the twin. That is where I am from 9AM-7PM today!
At the twins, I had another tangelo for a snack. I am officially addicted!
I also had more almonds.
When I got home, around 7:30, I had a bowl of Paleo Chili. It was delish.
For dessert, I had more apple slices with almond butter and this beauty:
And that concludes the a Monday in my Paleo life! :)
