I have forgotten it’s Friday today. The first day of our very first half term and I can’t even remember what day it is. It’s been one of those days where I am running in circles and can’t get anything done. I keep messing times and places up. I think it’s time for B to have a break from school but for me to also have a break too. I am so looking forward to next week having B home with us and being a trio again on our daily adventures together. I really hope this amnesia goes away because today has been a total write off. I was thinking it’s Thursday and that’s what happens when you go to London for the day, you lose a day in your head. I really enjoyed my time there yesterday with some amazing blogging friends for an event, more on that later. So I am now playing catch up in my head for a lost day of the week.
THIS WEEK WE ARE LOVING…
I have been reading all about Soreen bread as an American I have never heard of it before but my kids recently have been testing out the breakfast bites. I was excited to see if MM would eat them as she hates breakfast and I have tried over the past year to get her to eat anything before lunch and failed. She absolutely loved the Apple, Cinnamon and Toasted Oats ones. B was more keen on the Original Malt and Toasted Oats and keeps asking if he can have them for afternoon snacks as well. They are great because they are individually packages so I can throw them in his swimming bag for after swimming energy boost. Either way, when we are constantly on the go, it’s great to have a healthy snack bar to grab. I am loving them myself during the week when I need a quite bite to eat before I dive into my work.
I have heard so many baby announcements this week and last week, it’s like a bloggers’ baby boom. I am loving every second of it. I love hearing about all these amazing families expanding. It’s making me so broody for a third. I love being on bump watch with so many of you and along for the journey through all your blogs. Huge congratulations to you all.
While speaking of baby announcements I had to share this amazing video announcement from Katie at MummyDaddyMe, get the tissues out, it will make you cry happy tears!
It’s been a cozy and lazy week on the wardrobe front. I have been throwing on what’s comfortable and warm rather than thinking about matching and trendy. It’s been mostly full of brown and black combos. I even snuck into the nail salon to get my Halloween nails done. I couldn’t quite brave the orange but I stuck to black and white with some bling instead. I have never had black nail polish and I didn’t think I would suit it but it’s a new favorite of mine already.
I have been making holiday challenges for myself. After working so hard to lose the rest of my baby weight this past summer, I am trying hard not to do what I do every Christmas and gain the holiday ten back. With this I have been making a new exercising routine and making challenges for eating healthy and clean around all the festivities that are going on from now until New Years. I am testing out UFit protein drinks. I am have always liked to have a few protein shakes during the week especially when I am working out more. Mr P absolutely loves the strawberry flavor whereas I am loving the chocolate a lot more. We both live very busy lives that it’s handy to grab a protein drink to keep us energized. It’s milk with added oomph, 22g protein and no added sugar which means it’s great for the system after a hard kettlebell session too. I am trying to make better eating choices than I did last year which saw me at the height of my weight ever. It’s full of vitamins and fiber too and with winter around the corner, it never hurts to keep our immune systems stocked up. Have you made any health and fitness challenges lately? I would love to hear them. Have you ever heard of UFit before? If not, enter my giveaway below and you could win this #UFitPower Pack to test out yourself.
