I finally feel like a semi-normal person again! Yesterday I was super tired all day. Normally on Wednesday's I wake up and do some type of strength training in my living room, (usually No More Trouble Zones, Jillian Michaels) but I was just so exhausted from Parent Teacher Conferences. I slept in a little bit and then woke up like a zombie. I made it through the day because it was St. Patrick's Day and my kids were all in good moods. They were adorable about the Irish Soda Bread and couldn't believe I actually made it myself (they say that about everything I bake them!) They also said "OOOOhh SODA, when I told them what it was called. School went pretty fast between math test prep and ELA test prep.
After school I was headed to the gym and then decided to go straight home. I just could NOT go to the gym on a beautiful day like yesterday. I wanted to go for a walk and headed to the park and trail by my house. Once I got going I decided to walk for 2 minutes, run for 2 minutes for about a half hour. I usually don't run 2 days in a row, but I just kept an easy job going because I was feeling it.
When I got home I started making dinner, which was pan seared tuna, brown rice for Danny and a mix of sweet potato and butternut squash fries for Danny and I. I also made a little escarole, chick pea, red onion and mushroom stir fry. (Oh and I made my own take on eggplant bacon.) I like a lot of veges for dinner if you couldn't tell!
For dessert Danny had a gigantic chocolate milkshake (as you can see) and I had another one of my new ice cream concoctions. Tonight it was half a banana (that's all I had left :( ), strawberries, dark cocoa, and cacao nibs. I think this ties with PB chocolate banana ice cream.
Blend together the banana, strawberries and cocoa powder with an immersion blender. Top with cacao nibs and enjoy every single last bite!!
I have a question for you all. I, obviously, am a teacher and after meeting with some parents I have a controversial question. How do you feel about putting kids on meds for ADHD or emotional/mental issues? Do you feel like it is a quick fix? Does anyone have any experience with the Feingold Diet? I am so interested to hear what you say! I want to hold out on my opinion for now, to see what you think first!
