Weekend Adventures, Pre-teen Attitude and Meal Prep for the Week

Took the kids to Canada’s Wonderland last weekend on a whim, and took advantage of our season passes and the 19-degree fall weather. The day started off rocky with my pre-teen son being in a moooooood. But by the end, everyone pulled through and we finished the day strong with a few rides and funnel cakes!  We're excited to go back and experience Halloween Haunt in a few weeks! This coming week will be busy so I've pre-tracked some meals in my WW app to keep me on track.  A few things I prepped for easy grab-and-go meals: I made some WW Vegetable Soup. Baked some portobello mushrooms for a meatless main dish.  Made some hard-boiled eggs. Cooked some quinoa and chopped veggies to make some quick salads. Washed and chopped lettuce, cucumbers and peppers for easy meals and snacks. What's on your to-do list this week? On our favourite ride!

Currently: COVID-19 Edition


CURRENTLY on my mind...

Feeling: A little bit anxious, a little bit like I need to get on the treadmill to get my butt moving, and a little overwhelmed with being cooped up in the house. We are on day 31 of quarantine/self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cooking: For lunch I'm warming up leftovers from our Easter dinner (chicken cutlets and rice). Tonight it's pasta with homemade sauce.

Drinking: Copious amounts of coffee...and wine...because we're in self-quarantine and let's face it....the only way to survive this with kids is to drink caffeine and wine. 

Eating: ALL THE THINGS. Kidding. Still munching on the the kids Easter chocolates and trying to supplement it with healthy Weight Watchers (WW) friendly eats. 

Reading: I just bought What Happens Now? by Sophia Money-Coutts. I haven't started it yet technically but I plan to this week! 

Wasting: Time! I'm such a procrastinator!!! Also spring mix lettuce. Am I the only one who buys a box and then just let's it sit in the fridge until it's rotten and time to buy a new one? Rinse and repeat.

Wishing: That the COVID-19 pandemic was over so we could get out of quarantine/self-isolation and get back to normal. Not only do I want everyone healthy and thriving but I'm not going to lie...I miss Winners and Home Sense :( 

Wearing: PJ's and comfy lounge wear. All day. Every day.

Procrastinating: Working out and cleaning the house. HELP ME!!!
