It’s one of those wonderful early summer mornings when there’s a constant chirp of crickets as background noise.
And a fine morning for oatmeal!
I set my alarm a little early this AM. I have developed a fast habit of reading emails + blogs on my iPhone in bed when I first get up, and some days it’s more than a few minutes So I set the alarm earlier so I’d be on schedule!
I came down at 7:20 and decided to do 20 minutes of Heart Opening Flow #1 before having breakfast. Ahhhhh. That guy burns my quads too!
Then I mixed up a big batch of classic oats –
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/4 cup 9 grain cereal
- 1/3 cup soy milk
- 2/3 cup water
- Pinch salt
- Drizzle coconut butter (which is not liquidy thanks to warmer weather)
- Sprinkle Zoe’s Granola
- Blob of Barney Butter
- A few butterscotch chips
I want moreeeeeeee!
Today’s working will be MOWING!!! I was excited last night that I got to wake up, having a nice breakfast and then mow the lawn. It’s such fun exercise, and I usually burn about 300 calories (thanks to wearing my HRM a few times). Mowing is such satisfying work too. While I digest, I’m thinking about taking a warm-up walk with Cooking Light to do some meal planning.
I’m working today from 2-7pm, and Matt’s going to have dinner on the table when I return – sweet!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jenna!!!!
