Parenthood and Some GOOD Eats

So — I know this is a bit behind the curve {a common happening in the Jara household} but ladies and gentleman we have a new obsession.

parenthood

Oh yeah. . . cliche or not, we have found our newest obsession.  A little different from our previous {Breaking Bad and Dexter}, but I am finding myself unable to stop clicking “play” for the next episode.  Does Netflix embarrass anyone else when they ask you “Are you still watching …” Yeah, happens more often than I care to admit.  Moving on.

Yesterday – The last moments of vacation

After soaking up my lazy morning with coffee and mountain gazing

It was almost noon so before I knew it my stomach got me up from my reading {Cooked, Michael Pollan} and into the kitchen for a fresh and easy second breakfast.

Gluten free toast, lemon water and a ton of fruit.

x2 a few hours later because it as just that good and, well, I wanted more.

Work out

  The morning and afternoon were getting away from me and I was feeling a tad lazy, so I decided to look into youtube to find a quick and easy ab workout.  This afternoons workout?  A 30 minute quick and dirty HIIT and Ab workout 

Yup, did the trick.  Highly recommended, as it’s a great balance of ab intervals mixed with HIIT intervals.  Perfection.

Reality started to hit me at some point mid afternoon, when I started filling out the packets of HR paperwork that needed to be done before I go to training tomorrow.  Man, I really did forget how much work goes into starting NEW work.  Ironic…yes.

Dinner

Eventually we got hungry again, which was a good thing because tonight’s was a good one.

Gluten free {amazing} pasta with a side salad.  It was flipping amazing, I promise you, you will be seeing this dinner here on Chocolate Medals, gluten free or not. YUM.  I’ll be sure to get the brand for you guys, you gotta try it.

Sweet Treat

And my sweet treat for the evening?

That cupcake I mentioned from my morning bike ride.  Mexican Chocolate.  Happy Cakes, expect a regular customer.

And now, it’s time for my first day!  Send good vibes everyone 🙂

  1. You will do great with your new job! Good luck! Also, that is hilarious about that Netflix embarrassing question. I don’t have Netflix, but that is such a funny thing to admit. 🙂
