Good morning! I set my alarm early today to make it to a morning spinning class, but I didn’t make it very far. While I was successful pushing myself to get out of bed, I couldn’t bring myself to make it past my overflowing laundry basket. Do you ever find yourself wishing you had adult snow days… just so you could clean? Maybe it’s just me.
Maybe I could have done something useful last night while I was watching Shameless.. and Girls.. and Revenge… and The Bachelor. But once I hit the couch for the evening I am done for. So, to make a long story short… I skipped the am spin class, got over the fact that I don’t get snow days (kind of), and decided to do laundry, dishes, and meal prep at 5:30am. Hopefully I can squeeze in a short run later today.
On the bright side, I picked an awesome mango at the store the other day. Mangos are one of those ominous fruits that many people don’t know what to do with (I was one of them). They have an awkward seed right in the middle and you have to whittle it down to get all the good stuff. So if you’re unsure of how to cut a mango, follow along with my pictures below:
Look at how much space that seed takes up!
While I was feeling ambitious (and had the peeler out), I also prepped a kiwi. I’m going to have one awesome afternoon snack today!
I always have to be extra careful not to squish the kiwi in my hand when I’m peeling it. I’m not sure if that’s a normal problem to have or if I just need a new peeler? But the struggle is real.
The meal lineup for today is:
Breakfast – whole wheat English muffin with almond+chia seed butter and raspberry jam
Lunch – Grilled chicken kale salad with roasted potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, Frank’s Red Hot + balsamic vinegar
Snack – Green tea with that beautiful fruit and some cottage cheese
Have a good Tuesday!
How do you fit cleaning into your weekly routine?
