Happy Birthday, Jaden!

Posted Feb 12 2013 4:00pm

Happy 6th Birthday to my baby Jaden!


Proud new daddy and baby Jaden:


Proud new brother Jacob:


I swear that Jaden doesn’t look anything like he did when he was a baby. He looks so completely different now than when he was born that I often wonder if I came home with the right kid…

I’m joking, I’m joking. He’s definitely my baby, but he sure looks different now.


Luckily, he got cuter as he got older…


…and balder.

That’s okay, we just covered up his big bald head with a hat :)


Happy Birthday, Jaden!! I love you!

Today’s Workout

  • 1.11 miles treadmill, walked
  • Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes

Today in Butts and Guts class, the instructor set up about 10 different stations. We spent three minutes at each station, rotating until we did every station. It was a fun workout, and I really enjoyed it.

Some of the stations included:

  • one-legged squats
  • jump rope
  • squats on a bench with four risers
  • kettle ball arm raises
  • hurdles
  • bosu ball exercises

Post-workout, I had something a little different for snack today.


I had a cookie dough Luna protein bar. I’ve been hearing good things about this bar lately, so I figured I’d pick one up and try it out. While it was good, it wasn’t my favorite. I’m glad that I tried it and would recommend it, but I prefer my normal snack size Builder bar.

The Luna bar had 170 calories and 12 grams of protein. Whenever I buy protein bars, I try to look for three things – not too high in calories, high in protein, and tastes good. I like to stick to around 150 calories and at least 8 or more grams of protein.

After the gym, I went to pick up my niece. As soon as I got there, the school called saying that Jaden was sick and throwing up. On his birthday. My poor baby.

My brother’s house is at least a half hour away from Jaden’s school, so I got my niece ready really quick, and we went to Jaden’s school to pick him up. So, Jaden will spend his birthday laying on the couch and watching cartoons for the rest of the afternoon.


We’re going to have his birthday dinner and cake tomorrow if he feels better.


Lunch this afternoon was a strawberry, blueberry, and peanut butter smoothie. Trust me – it was absolutely delicious. It’s like eating dessert for lunch.


I topped my smoothie with some of the new Cheerio Medley Crunch cereal.


Have you tried this cereal? I love it! I never thought I’d be a fan of mixing cereals, but I was wrong. This cereal has honey nut Cheerios, flakes, and granola clusters. It is so good that sometimes I can’t even start eating it, or I won’t want to stop.

I hope you all have a great afternoon!

  • Do you mix cereals together? Which ones?
  • When is the last time you were sick?
  • What was for lunch today?
  • Do you have kids – how old are they?
