Good morning everyone. I hope your week is off to a great start. I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. We have the girls’ birthday party this weekend. I am so excited to get to celebrate both my girls. I will fill you in on the details as the week progresses.
Lately, I have really been eating a mix of things. I am still not very hungry, but I continue to get enough protein. It is tough.
Meal # 1 – 7:30
We had Greek Yogurt Waffles again this morning. This is one of our favorites and a great source of protein. (23 grams of protein)
Meal # 2 – 11:00
I forgot to take a picture of this meal, but I had some turkey with hummus and cheese in a Tumaro wrap. They have 5 grams of protein and are delicious. (30 grams of protein)
Snack # 1 – 11:30
Nana made dinner for us Monday night as well as these amazing chocolate chip cookies. I paired it with a glass of milk as a mid day treat. (8 grams of protein)
Snack # 2 – 2:30
I had a bowl of fruit with Go Lean cereal, my favorite. (20 grams of protein)
Meal # 3 – 6:00
After Isabella woke up from her nap the girls and I met Mimi at Party City to buy everything we needed for their birthday party. I will fill I you in on everything we bought in the next couple days. It was quite the adventure. Party City with a 2 and 4 year old is quite interesting. I will say Isabella was easy because she really didn’t care, but Sophia was picky about everything. We had a breakdown during our trip, but she ended up telling me she just needs more Mommy time. I really think it is starting to hit her that she is going to have to share me with two more sisters. I need to make sure we get alone time everyday.
I have learned when my girls are breaking down it is usually about so much more than what the issue is at the moment. I try to take a step back and figure out what’s really going on.
After our shopping trip we decided to get some dinner. We ended up going to Max and Erma’s. Sophia love’s this restaurants because they have chocolate chip cookies. These are not your basic cookies, they come out hot and fresh.
I need to get better about remembering to take pictures of food when we go out to eat, but I am simply not in the habit. We really don’t go out to dinner very much. I prefer to eat at home, I like to know what is in my food. I know I am strange.
For dinner I ordered a chicken sandwich. I also had a side salad with balsamic dressing (Isabella loves salad and ate half, next time I am ordering a bigger salad). We ended the meal with warm chocolate chip cookies. These cookies were so hot when they brought them to the table we couldn’t even touch them. Yum! (25 grams of protein)
