If that is not your cup of tea, no worries in any respect, and I will see you tomorrow with a brand new podcast episode!

Within the meantime, register Spring form here and begin consulting the platform! We’ve got over 200 associates signed up to this point and I am unable to wait to do it with you all.

The women wakened early and had their Valentine’s Day baskets ready for them.

(Sweet, beanie boos, a cute heart-shaped sweater, a ebook, tub bombs and lip gloss. They had been pumped!)

When the ladies had been a lot youthful and I noticed present baskets for each vacation, it harassed me out. I used to be simply attempting to maintain them alive, clear, fed, and completely satisfied, so issues like Halloween baskets or Valentine’s baskets appeared unfathomable to place collectively. As an alternative, I simply tried to do different issues to rejoice, like hearts on their doorstep with issues I like about them. I nonetheless make this one at present and the ladies like it – they maintain their hearts open all yr spherical.

Now that they are a bit older and so they can, you realize, dress, bathe, and many others., it is quite a bit simpler to do little additional enjoyable issues once I really feel prefer it.

I drank AG1 earlier than going out and ate just a few eggs with sriracha and EBTB seasoning.

(Confession: I’ve solely tried AG1 just a few instances up to now and did not just like the style. The model requested me if I needed to attempt some, so I assumed I would positively give it a attempt to possibly share with my household and associates. Seems I like it. I even began craving the style within the morning after consuming it often. I like all of the vitamins and really feel nice after just a few weeks of consuming it each morning on an empty abdomen. They gave me a reduction code to share, so I will publish it as quickly as I get it!)

I dropped the ladies off at college with their Valentine’s Day containers and presents for his or her associates, and went straight to the pilot’s squadron.

Alongside the best way, I picked up just a few dozen Valentine’s donuts to depart on the bar for everybody to take pleasure in, together with playing cards and roses for his or her family members.

After dropping off the voucher, I headed to a spot I now not go: the bottom gymnasium!

I LOVE coaching on the bottom. They’ve the whole lot I may need, all of the enjoyable purposeful gear, and the vibe at all times challenges me to work exhausting. The frustration is that it is a good half-hour from our home (40 in visitors) so it isn’t reasonable to go there throughout the week. Since I used to be already on base, I assumed it was the right time for a coaching tour and took half in an superior complete physique exercise.

Breakfast was ready for me within the automobile:

1/2 cup oats

Almond milk

2 tablespoons of chia seeds

1 tablespoon chocolate protein powder



Peanut Butter

He put within the fridge in a single day so the oats had been tender and it was the right post-workout gasoline.

I went straight dwelling to work for just a few hours (answered emails, recorded a podcast episode, and designed exercises for subsequent month’s Match Crew), then took Maisey strolling.

Lunch consisted of leftover chili from the Tremendous Bowl, a bit of sourdough with butter, and a easy chopped salad with Poshi asparagus and Primal Kitchen dressing.

I obtained again to work (investigated IHP, 1 1:1 buyer name, labored on my Friday Faves weblog publish, despatched invoices), took a meditation/prayer break on my Go Mat (10 minutes)

then I had slightly deal with within the afternoon:

a decaffeinated espresso with almond milk, collagen and a truffle within the coronary heart of See.

Shortly, I zoomed by means of the home (performed the laundry totally, wiped down the counter tops, vacuumed and turned off the dishes) and headed for a church assembly. After the assembly, I picked up the crew, which had tons of valentines and presents from faculty!

We drove dwelling the place they’d after-school snacks, and we dropped Liv off at promenade with different Valentines to socialize. P and I labored on his homework and obtained prepared for slightly household night time out at Fleming’s.

Fleming’s is among the eating places in Tucson that’s persistently very, excellent. All of us love their meals, so I assumed this is able to be the right Valentine’s Day dinner.

My little valentines:

As at all times, the whole lot was superb.

We began with the salad (the pilot and I shared one), shrimp cocktail and P had the cheese plate from the youngsters menu. Liv and the pilot additionally acquired cups of lobster bisque – I attempted a style and it was aaaaamazing. For our starters all of us had fillets and shared asparagus, onion rings and Fleming potatoes (tacky and mildly spiced). The pilot stopped consuming desserts in October, so I shared this chocolate lava cake with Liv (P had ice cream and whipped cream). I had sauvignon blanc and a valentine cocktail with gin, strawberry and lemon.

After we obtained dwelling, I would prefer to say I crashed into my mattress in a wine-and-steak induced sleep, however… not fairly. I folded and put away an armful of laundry, obtained the ladies’ garments prepared for Wednesday, the pilot completed his homework with the ladies whereas I packed lunches,

and stayed up too late to learn. 😉

I crashed round 11am and was able to blitz once more this morning.

How was your Valentine’s Day? What was the BEST factor you ate yesterday? Superior exercises?
