Run/Strength – PENDING
I did my track workout with Cici yesterday and all I could say is, THANK GOD for her. I was cramping and not feeling it. She was EXHAUSTED. Together we were just not motivated. In a way, I was hoping she was going to say, “hey, I’m not feeling it; you’re not feeling it… let’s just do an easy run?” I would have chimed in. But she didn’t, so I didn’t and so 1.2 miles and dynamic stretches later, we started our 5k trial.
At each mile, I wanted to give up and say, “Just go… I’m gonna just take it easy!” But I kept by her side — and 12 laps + a tenth later, we were DONE!!!!
Cici brought me her apple dessert dish that she made on Sunday. It looked so good I couldn’t wait for dessert.
I warmed it up for 30 seconds and added the topping she gave me.
Almost tastes like apple pie without the whole crust. In any event, I finished the entire serving she gave and I don’t regret it! It was SO good.
On a funny matter, Monday I picked up Lili at my FIL’s house and she came running over to me in this ridiculous outfit that he changed her into.
Yes, she’s wearing her brother’s onesie as a shirt backwards as well as her shorts. HYSTERICAL. We were cracking up.
And the serious note, my daughter is beyond picky when it comes to eating. Of course she likes the usual junk that any other kid would love. One positive thing is she loves fruits. BUT, the only other foods that come out of her menu are rice (white and/or yellow), omelettes, soups, noodles. Packing her school lunch box is driving me up the wall. She will eat peanut butter but no nuts in school. Coming home, I get disappointed and worrisome for her because 75% of the time, she hardly eats a bite and comes home famished. I tried explaining to her that she needs to eat for energy to learn and play. I do pack her rice, but she’s also a very slow eater, so I don’t know if she just has the time to feed herself. I asked her what the other kids eat and she says, “sandwiches”. So today, I tried to make her an omelette sandwich.
I hope today is a better day for her at lunch. It’s coming to the point where I’m concerned for her health. She won’t eat cold cuts. I’m going to try and see if she likes jelly/jam. Maybe that could be an option.
Do you remember what you ate for lunch in elementary school?
My grandmother usually packed me peanut butter sandwiches. This was before the whole, “no nut” allergy. I never ever bought school lunch. I do know that Lili’s school lunch is $1.40. I wouldn’t dare spend it because it would go in the garbage. My kid doesn’t eat PIZZA. Is she really my kid?
Favorite Fall Dessert?
I do like me some warm apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
