I had all intentions to post yesterday, I even had a post written with a new workout to share but I completely forgot!! I’ve been trying to live more in the moment and yesterday the day got away from me. I promise I will share the workout next week
I have a few things I wanted to share with you from this week. Maybe I use the term LOVE a little loosely with these posts but I get excited for all new things to share with you that I think its close to love.
Things I’m loving this week!
My dad supports my healthy lifestyle and he’s even cleaned up his diet a lot. (I won’t give myself any credit there) he did it on his own. Anyways, he loves Costco and he LOVES buying Ava and myself healthy snacks from there. His choices always surprise me and when he brought over these Figgy pops Energy Bites I couldn’t help but get a little excited to try them. They were definitely amazing and I approved of all the ingredients. Thanks Dad!
Costco has some great prepared salad mixes. This one from Taylor farms is delicious. They are so easy to prepare for a quick, simple and healthy dinner. I’ve eaten them twice this week with some chicken on top. The one pictured below has kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, and a poppy seed dressing!
Fall Produce has been my favorite way to enjoy veggies this week. I simply roast them in the oven with olive oil and salt & pepper. Pictured below are a spaghetti squash, a carnival squash and a delicata squash!
Crockpot dinners were my thing this week. If I said I didn’t love the crockpot I would be lying, it just seems so easy that I felt like I was cheating this week. I really enjoyed having lots of leftovers, in fact we had so much food in the fridge I panicked a bit… I didn’t want to waste a single thing!! We made a big Turkey/beef chili and Chicken Cacciatore!
Ava had a playdate at my mom’s office while I worked Wednesday morning. She had fun running around and making a mess with rubber bands and paper. In the afternoon we all made a trip to St. Augustine’s Farm to buy a pumpkin and explore the market. It was fun.
It was a great week and I’m looking forward to our weekend trip to Rhode Island to visit Marc’s family!!
What’s something you are loving this week?
Any fun weekend plans?

That’s so awesome that your dad is making good choices too! SO much easier when you have a good support system.

Thanks! It’s so nice that he’s making better choices and I’m glad I can rub off on him a bit!
