Nothing major, just breakfast
We decided to go to the gym first thing last night, so we set the alarm for 7:30 and were on our way by 8. Since it was warm out and the skies were mostly dry, we biked. I did a nice 30 minutes on the Stepmill with Health and then pullups, pushups and abs at the end, followed by our bike ride home. Nice way to start the day! I think if I had my choice of a routine to follow for the rest of my life I’d prefer a yoga, oatmeal then workout schedule, but whenever I workout first, it’s always so nice.
So on the way home the husband pronounced a craving for eggs. While I was already excited about oatmeal, poached eggs on his amazing bread did sound appealing, so I agreed.
We used Karen’s microwave method to poach the eggs – a splash of water in the bottom of a ramekin and cook on power level 4 for 60 seconds. Our microwave is slightly different and we tried a few different time/water combos on our 3 eggs. It method worked perfectly – too perfectly, as my egg was overcooked (to my runny yolk standards). I think had we let it “rest” instead of giving it 10 more seconds it might have worked. But it was a quick and easy alternative.
I had half a bosc pear with my egg as well as a nice yogurt dish – my oatmeal compromise. Underneath the Kashi GoLean Crunch is a tbsp of pumpkin butter.
I love having a later breakfast because it means I need fewer snacks throughout the day, but it does mess with my eating schedule a bit. I am totally full now so I don’t know when I’ll have lunch – perhaps around 2? But the thought of it now is unappealing!
We’ve got another murky day out there. Today is the husband’s last day off, so we’re hoping to spend time together at home today. He’s working the rest of the week (including the weekend) and next week I’m back to my classes 😥
Those of you back at work today – I hope your workday goes by fast!
