Little Things: Banana Coconut Cream Burritos!

Workout: none :(

I had an odd night of sleeping last night. I attribute it to not putting my pc down until after 9:30, then doing some light house stuff I usually do around 10. When will I learn?

I got to bed around 10:30ish and my lightning bug app did work - I think. It was that "in-between I'm not sure if I'm asleep" type of deal when the wind woke me up an hour later. It was just odd.

I was tired, too tired to choose working out over 40 extra minutes of sleep. Sometimes you just have to give in, but then the grogginess that comes with that decision makes you think otherwise. I may have been a little pissy today, just a little bit.

So it was more walking breaks for me today, before we hit the 110+ mark outside.

I was planning a night time yoga relaxing session. I figured I'd give it a try while watching some TV, but that was before knowing I wasn't going to be done until 9.

My back's been feeling sore again, so for all you future Mama's, make sure to make core work and elemental part of your post-baby workout routine. I'm afraid I didn't do enough of it and I'm paying for it now :(

On to today's little Gem: Banana Coconut Cream Burritos!

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 dates
  • 3 T coconut flakes
  • 1/4 c walnuts
  • 3/4 c ricotta cheese
  • 3 T chia seeds
  • 3 tortillas
  1. Microwave the dates with some water for a minute to plump them up a bit!
  2. Mix the banana, dates and ricotta cheese in the food processor.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix
  4. Divide the mixture and wrap them up in the tortillas
  5. Enjoy!

Oh yeah - so good and surprisingly filling!I thought I was going to be hungry a couple of hours after I ate this, but it held up a good 4 hours :)

I am putting my PC away now, have a good one tomorrow :)
