Up at 5 this AM. Even though I don’t have to get up at 3am, I still have been going up to bed around 8:30 or so when the husband does and reading/studying for a bit. It’s gotten me in bed earlier, which is nice because I wake up refreshed at 5! This morning I made myself late by listening to NPR (which is my newest addiction, partly politics related) so I didn’t have as much time at the gym as I’d liked. I did 30 minutes on the Stairs followed by 10 on the Stat bike and had to skip out on stretching and stuff to ensure I got to spend some quality time with my oatmeal!
This morning’s bowl ended up quite soupy – not sure why! Maybe because I only cooked one serving, or because the cottage cheese melted a bit, but it was still a GREAT tasting bowl!! I think the cottage cheese really sweetens it up even though it’s not that sweet to begin with.
1/3 cup oats, 2% milk, water
1/2 large banana
Vanilla bean paste, salt
3 tbsp wheatberries
1/4 cup cottage cheese
Pumpkin butter, swirled
Honey Cinnamon PB – yum!
Speak of the devil!! After yesterday’s Yerba Mate post, the husband brought home this box of opened demo tea. It’s a Dark Roast flavor, which I kind of liked, but it got a little bitter after a while. I think I need to take the tea bag out promptly, as tea tends to get bitter if you overbrew it.
Here’s me entering Caitlin’s Lamest Workout Outfit Contest. While my summer gear is not bad (mostly tanks and shorts from Target) my winter gear is FRUMPY, FRUMP, FRUMPALICOUS! I wear these horribly huge sweat pants (easy to get on and off to get to my shorts underneath) and the ugliest color old fleece. And can’t forget the cheap gloves! I could definitely use some sleek cold weather gear
Off to Organic, then studying for Micro all day, plus GOTR.
