Workout – yet to happen. Jillian for sure. and probs some running of some sort. hubs got the gym this morning. I got the bed. until 6:30. with a snuggly 5 year old. snuggle is an understatement. she smothers. and then smothers some more and then she snuggles. I love it.
I am one of those people that thinks every that happens in life, happens for a reason. there is always something to be learned and to make us grow from, whatever the circumstance may be. like my son not sleeping past 4 am for 3 months. prior to that, I would have
minor major anxiety about not getting up by 4:45am to get to the gym before the craziness of the day. until the sleep steeling monster decided to rip my mornings away from me and we would wake up the crack of dawn. then sleep became more important than the gym at 5 am. I am SO thankful that he sleeps now. we have had about 1 full week of good sleep. The new, sleeping Katie has less anxiety and more appreciation for the good things sleep does for me. instead of panicking that I don’t get to the gym in the morning, and when am I going to get my workout in, I am thankful that I get to sleep. I definitely think it started throwing my body completely out of whack. I started gaining weight, for no reason. I was miserably cranky all the time. my husband would say that has nothing to do with lack of sleep. I would say if you don’t have anyhthing nice to say, dont say anything at all. anyway – that’s my thought on the importance of sleep. I get it now. I was happy to stay in bed until 6:30 this morning and I didn’t have an ounce of panic about not getting my workout in. I will fit in it today at some point. sleep does a body good. and I need a good nights sleep once every three months or so. thanks Luke for working with us.
Quick funny – I took this picture yesterday –
and it broke my phone. as soon as I took it, my phone did this weird thing and shut down and I couldn’t get it back on. when it finally came back on, it tried to erase all my pictures. I saved it. I don’t know how, but I stopped the madness. guess it didn’t like that mug. it must be the ever growing vein or the ginormous forehead/nose combo that upset the balance of my phone. I haven’t decided. no more pics of my face. done. for today.
I’m also thankful for another fantastic dinner that was served last night. and my three children to help me make it. last night I put Luke in charge of chopping the vegetables.
I have cut up so many vegetables in the past two nights. I’m done. cutting vegetables. for the rest of the week. thankful for a freezer full of frozen veggies waiting to be roasted.
The finished product was Sweet Potato and lots of other stuff vegan echiladas. They might technically have a different name on the blog I got it from – Oh She Glows.
It was topped with this AMAZING cilantro avocado cream sauce. I LOVE cilantro. love love love it. could swim in a pool of it. wouldn’t that be fun. so this was exciting to have it on top of enchiladas. super exciting. more exciting than all of my fun Target finds yesterday.
I am not going to put the recipe on here word for word for 2 reasons – 1. because I am too lazy to do that. 2. it’s already typed up for you on the other blog. check it out. you can click on the link above. I made a few of my own changes – and they turned out fantastico. I am on a roll this week. here are a couple of pictures to make your mouth water though. and this is a super healthy dish.
This dinner was kind of time consuming to make. with all of the veggie cutting going on and my lack of preparation that should have started at breakfast time. that just about took up the entire evening. I was too exhausted to even turn on the TV. hubs and I had an old couple night. who am I kidding. we have an old couple night every night. he sat in the chair and read. I sat on the couch and
read played on the computer. too exciting to really express in words. darn good times.
