It’s weird being all by myself this morning! The husband was up around 3am, showered and dressed in the guest room, kissed me goodbye and was on his way. I couldn’t believe I still had 2 more hours to sleep while still getting up at the crack of dawn! He is working at EarthFare later this afternoon with a break in-between. He’ll be doing a cooking demo on tofu tonight, and my friend Kelsey and I are going to attend! On his menu: MY BBQ baked tofu 🙂 , edamame, and a Tofu Peanut Butter Pie!
With the unusual morning I was running adrenaline when I got up at 5 and was off to the gym. I drove because I don’t like biking alone in the dark 🙁 Once there I did 35 minutes on the Stairmaster followed by upper body lifting with free weights. I did 2 sets of 15-20 of biceips, shoulder press, lateral shoulders (is that what they’re called?), triceps, and push-ups, all with 15 lb weights.
It’s been fun having the house to myself so I can make everything perfect! I did the dishes before I sat down to breakfast (only took me about 60 seconds) so I would get back up to a clean kitchen. And the pillows are perfectly aligned and everything’s in its place. it’s a good thing I do have a roommate or I might drive myself nuts living by myself!
We have had this box of Hodgson Mill MultiGrain Cereal in our pantry for over 2 years – I know that because we moved into this house with it! There was only 1 serving left so we’ve been saving it for a time when there’s just 1 of us home. Today was the day. I like this cereal, which is made from oats, oatbran and flax, but it’s not as sweet and creamy (or cheap!) as regular oats. But fun for a change. Today, though, I think the last bit was too old because it tasted a little stale. I put in just over the 1/3 cup serving (to use it up) with 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup 2% milk, and 1 medium banana.
Plus salt, vanilla, cinnamon + nutmeg, brown sugar, almonds and AB –
Plus tea –
My Real Simple breakfast:
It’s a gorgeous fall day out there! Off to double classes – with a fun packed lunch!
