Happy Monday.. Damn rainbow chip cake

What a morning.. fist of all I ate a piece of rainbow chip Bday cake last night at a family BBQ.. I always skip dessert but its my childhood favorite treat ever!! So I dived right in, damn it! So to justify it I told myself I would do an extra intense workout at the gym today.
 So I get up at 0700 (after being up from 0500-0600 for Eva's feeding) to get Ethan up for school and after his swim in the freezing cold pool at Grandma and Grandpas yesterday.. he had no voice and was super sick.. "NOW HOW AM I GOING TO GET TO THE GYM"?? Ethan is home sick and Nathan (daddy) also sick, has to go and complete a physical test this afternoon for work.. poor fella! So no gym = running out the door and get a little run in before Nathan leaves....
RUN COMPLETE Just back from a little 5km (well to me not so little) I think I left all my endurance at the hospital when I had the baby! I did however workout (run, light weights and other cardio) up to 5months of pregnancy and then Christmas came and bye bye gym and motivation!! Heres hoping that  helped in getting my regular run time back.. each run gets a little better but still have a long way to go! When a 5K makes you look like this.... theres a problem. yikes aroooough..


Anyways... Ethan and I are enjoying a couple smoothies.. Im lapping down a revamped green monster..
  •  heaping handful of spinach
  • 2 table spoons of Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup of almond milk (vanilla)
Ethans is much more yummy..
  • Banana
  • 1 cup of 1% White milk
  • 2 tsp Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla ice cream (just so he thinks its a milkshake) Kids will drink anything they think is made of ice cream.
check it out.. yumm.. maybe he will trade?

Heres hoping this green monster gives me magical powers.. I have a billion and one things to get done today...
    hummm.. What to make for dinner tonight?? Chicken?

Glad I wasn't there today I would have fought Eathen for this smoothie....since he was sick I might have actually won! Good job on the run BFF!!!!
