Bath Time

Happy Sunday night! I can’t believe the weekend is almost over so soon!

After church, and volunteering in my Toddlers room full of 18 kids today (yes – 18 children between the age of 1-2)…I was ready for some rest and relaxation. First, though, we had lunch at one of our favorite Mexican places. Of course, we started with our traditional chips, salsa, and guacamole.

It is so easy to eat unhealthfully at Mexican places, but you can also eat relatively well, by making smarter choices, watching portion sizes, and observing your fullness cues. To me, little splurges are definitely worth it. For my entree, I chose a simple cheese enchilada, which I covered in salsa, + beans and rice.

Lunch was amazing. After lunch, we did our quick weekly grocery shopping trip and came home to relax and rest…one of the best parts of the weekend.

And, I had this deliciously juicy plum…

Dinner was delicious too – grilled wild tuna steaks with a ginger-orange sauce, baked sweet potato, and sauteed spinach….

Now, it is bath time for 3 dogs! Yes- we have a fun hour ahead. Then it’s time to prepare for a busy week. I hope you’ve had a great weekend. Thanks, as always, for reading.

Goodnight!

    I have just recently stumbled on your blog and wanted to say hi. I am also just dipping my toe into the blogging world. I am just starting back at school to be an RD after 6 years as a school counselor, so I am really interested to see what different people are doing with their careers in the field.

    I’ll be following along. I love your blog!
