Today we ate:
- Breakfast: Green smoothies for mom and LP, and pancakes for all of us.
- Mom had some cornflakes as a snack.
- Lunch: A mix-and-match affair of leftover coconut rice with butter (LP) and black bean and avocado quesodillas for all three of us. Mom and Dad also had some chips and salsa.
- Dinner: BBQ baked tofu with edamame succotash – very yummy! LP called the tofu “too spicy” as he devoured it, so we think “too spicy” means “just right!” This was followed up with a holiday treat at JP licks where we all shared some delicious lemon-raspberry and mojito sorbet.
Today we spent the following:
- $15.50 at Rite Aid for some eye drops – both the G-man and I have had some killer allergies lately!
- $7.50 on Amazon for some baby and nursing needs
- $9.00 at the Farmer’s Market for tomatoes and blueberries
- $30.00 on our CSA box. CSA stand for Community Supported Agriculture, and many local farms across the nation have this program. Simply put, we pre-paid around $700 in order to receive a box of fresh, local produce every week (from June to November) from a local farm. We get our CSA share from Enterprise Farms, which is one of the bigger farms in our area. We like their shares because there is a lot of variety, and their produce is great! Although we have prepaid for our CSA share, I put it in our budget on a monthly basis to remind us that we have spent that money on groceries already.
- $6.00 on our JP licks ice cream treat
This week I’ve been trying to squeeze mini-workouts in while I can. I still do stretching and squats while hanging out with LP in the playroom. We have also walked to the library and the store instead of driving, which is a good way to get me moving. Also, yesterday, we did a pretty decent hike in the Fells with Babes in the Woods (a local group that does guided hikes for parents and kids). Between the hiking and carrying LP for a good chunk of it, I got an upper-body and lower-body workout! Not bad for some exercise the day before baby #2 is due!
