Thoughts for Tuesday...and a Recipe!

Thoughts for Tuesday...

Monday was yet again another crazy work-filled day for me and I chose not to workout during my break and instead take a much needed physical and mental break since it was a long 12 hour work day. Today however, I got much done. Bella is still going back and forth in her naps and cannot decide if she wants 1 or 2 naps, so we're just going with the flow and the last few days, she has taken 2 naps. During her morning nap, I got a leg and short interval workout in. I also got her newborn, 0-3, 3-6M and most of her 6-9 month clothes all in bins to be more organized. Bella was trying to help me, but instead she was pulling all of the clothes back out of her bins, haha! It was sad putting the clothes away. Remembering how tiny she was-- brought tears to my eyes. I am feeling very nastalgic this week as we approach Bella's first birthday. I canNOT believe its been a year in less than a week. I've also found myself thinking about more children. If you would have asked me when B was 3 months old if I was going to have another baby, I would have probably laughed at you. But now, I can definitely tell you that the answer is yes. We definitely want more children, and I cannot wait until we are ready financially :-)

I will finish this post with my workout from today for those who enjoy following. I also have a recipe to share today.

Crockpot Turkey Feta Meatballs
*one of my favorites but for the crockpot!

1 pound lean ground turkey
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
garlic to taste
basil to taste
oregano to taste (i admit to not measuring out these 3 things...can you really have too much?)
1/2 package of reduced fat feta cheese
1 egg

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Shape into meatballs and place into sprayed crockpot. Top with 1 can of reduced sugar tomato sauce. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Serve hot! YUM!
