I was having a cozefest in my bed this morning. Pillows, quilts, sunshine. It was awesome.
I finally dragged myself up and put on my exercise clothes and then immediately vetoed the gym first thing in exchange for breakfast. I was hungry and could not visualize myself on the Stepmill without the proper fuel. When I HAD to be somewhere by 8:30/9AM in times past, going to the gym first thing was always preferred. And while it wasn’t easy to get up and go, I didn’t really think about it. I just did it because I knew I had to. Now that my schedule allows me to go mid-morning, the thought of going first thing is just painful! I feel like I have so much more of a pleasant time when I’m fed and awake 🙂
Breakfast was delicious!
Matt brought home this new Great Harvest creation yesterday – Hazelnut Cocoa Bread. It is actually savory – like a brown bread – but it’s got a mild cocoa aroma and was actually really nice!
Despite the fact that it was chilly out, a smoothie was on my mind to go with my toast.
But since I’d be sipping coffee, I didn’t want to drink 2 of the 3 parts of my breakfast, so I turned it into a SIAB.
Topped with some Mix My Granola, which I was going to skip due to my side of toast for some carbs, but I couldn’t resist the crunch!
- 4 strawberries
- 1 tiny banana
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 packet Vega
- Handful ice
French press bloom
I am back on skim milk in my coffee. The half and half wasn’t worth the extra purchase.
We have an abundance of REALLY ripe bananas that Matt picked up for super cheap in the cheap produce bin so I decided to freeze them for easy deposit into oats or smoothies:
Once the chunks are frozen I’ll put them in a ziplock bag together.
I am going to the gym shortly then off to EarthFare for test studying and then back-to-back-to-back classes!
Which reminds me, I better go pack up a dinner now!
