Breakfast was something different this morning! I have leftover ground turkey I need to use up, so I decided to incorporate it into a Taco breakfast scramble. Topped with cheddar cheese and seasoned with taco seasoning.
Along with a sandwich thin topped with almond butter and strawberry jam.
After a bit of redecorating (pictures will come later – promise!), I hit up the pool for a 40 minute swim.
2 x 300 freestyle
1 x 50 free, 1 x 50 breast (x4)
1 x 50 free, 1 x 50 IM stroke (x4)
300 freestyle pull
100 free cooldown
2000 yards total
Not bad, not bad. No hip exercises though 😦 I’ve really been slacking on those and need to get back on the ball since I’m going to start incorporating treadmill work back in.
Post swim lunch salad:
2 sweet potato latkes
Original flavored Kooloos
Mmm these latkes are so good. I picked them up at Costco and they have a delicious sweet and fatty (in a good way) taste to them.
For the “dressing” I just combined some POM wonderful pomegranate juice with some balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
The kooloos added a great boost of protein (7 g per serving!) and a delicious crunch to the salad. I liked the original much better than the BBQ (surprisingly, since BBQ anything is my favorite).
And since I told you my appetite has finally returned (I’m also thinking it’s a certain time of month??), I was starving not 2 hours later.
Snackie time! Date Heart Thrive. Warmed up in the microwave obvi.
And dinner was a cheese and black bean dip quesadilla on two sprouted tortillas.
Oh wait wait. I did enjoy some kettle corn while admiring some shirtless warewolves.
I obviously ate the actual popcorn and not the box.
A peach, carrots and clementines were also consumed this afternoon/evening. But I always manage to forget documenting those. They’re so small – they just go unnoticed!
copying modeling Miss Flashback Friday herself, I chose Flashback Friday – Easter edition. However I do only have the past 3 years of Easter on this computer. So unfortunately, it’s not too far of a flashback. But we’ll live 😉
One of the perks of having younger siblings – we still do egg hunts! Hey – not gonna lie when I say I still hunt for the eggs. It’s all fun 🙂
But before egg hunts, there must be egg dying!
Then we go in and get our gifts the “Easter Bunny” left on our table 😉
Some distant relatives also have a huge Easter party every year. Their backyard is beautiful and it’s a huge family type reunion! They also have a giant egg hunt in their yard. I don’t participate in this hunt obviously, but I remember the days when I would come home with like 3 pounds of candy!
The older siblings and I just stand around and watch, unfortunately. 😉
Look at this yard. I want to have my wedding here!
I love their dog!! He is the cutest, softest thing ever.
My sister gets excited to capture tadpoles from their pond 🙂
After the hunt, there’s a delicious buffet lunch.
With my grandma Sissie 🙂
I’m not going home this year, and it’s only my second Easter not spent with my family. It’ll be extremely weird, but I’m hoping that my roommates and friends here enjoy Easter together 🙂
Do you have any Easter traditions?
Are you a Twilight fan?
I enjoyed the books, but am not a huge fanatic. I do not at all see the obsession over Edward. I’m sorry. The paleness just creeps me out.
