I’m a day late eating chocolate and raspberries (close enough to strawberries!) but boy was this oatmeal delicious! I used the Trader Joe’s Nuts About Raspberries trail mix – the dried raspberries are so chewy and have little seeds – great for those who appreciate texture. There are also peanuts and almonds in this mix (both roasted and salted, FYI – my other one has raw nuts), so I went without a nut butter today but I did add flax, 1/2 a small banana and cinnamon.

I considered skipping spinning this morning, as I was a little more tired than usual when the alarm went off (got to bed a little late last night too…) but I did my visualization trick. I pictured how I’d feel leaving spinning after a great workout, eating breakfast without one, leaving class at noon and thought how I would feel if I skipped or went, especially if I was planning an afternoon workout.

We don’t have any big plans this weekend – yay!!! I love starting with a clean slate. And I’m done with my week of tests, so I just have a bunch of small assignments to complete, which I hope to finish this afternoon and tomorrow morning so I can relax the rest of the time. We’re planning a workout and brunch at a fun biscuit restaurant that has a healthy menu on Sunday and we’re doing a fun grilled dinner on Saturday night. And we have good weather planned too!
Off to two classes. I hope I get my tests back today!
