I slept horribly last night 🙁 Despite my calming bath and reading in bed, I didn’t fall asleep until after 11. I woke up again wide awake at 2 and at that point re-set my alarm from 5:30 to 7. I think the extra hour was all I needed to make it through the day OK. Wonder what was up?
This morning’s breakfast was quick and easy – reheated steel cut-rolled oat blend. We have half and half in our fridge because the husband is cooking up something sweet for my birthday (!!!) and we decided to experiment with it in breakfast. I put about a tbsp into my oats when I reheated them and it did make it nice and creammmmy 🙂 The husband must have put a quarter cup or so into his – he had a cream soup!
Also involved: half a banana, a chopped date, vanilla bean paste, almonds, PB. If I remember correctly, the oat base equaled a whole serving of the two kinds of oats (compared to my 1/3 cup servings) so I didn’t add any more grains. I’ll have to see how well this keeps hunger at bay today.
I think I need to add the banana when I make steel cut oats because they were just not nearly as naturally sweet as my 100% rolled stove-top version. Next time!
Plus coffee, made with milk. The husband put more cream in his and I have to say it was excellent. Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow. A little does go a long way. I’m not sure I want to have to buy half and half to have in our fridge each week, but as a once-in-a-while treat, it’s really fun.

Headed to school today 🙁 Midterm at 2pm. Yikes!!! I might do a walk + study session between my classes. Not sure if I’ll workout this afternoon. I might just enjoy some walks instead. Depends on my mood and if I have energy to burn at 4pm.
