I wish all mornings could be like this one…
In order to keep my body clock on the 5:00 hour, I set the alarm for 5:30 even though I’m not working out until this afternoon. When I woke up and had 3 hours to kill, I decided it was a perfect time to do some yoga! I surprised myself and did 52 minutes of a 64-minute Yogadownload Dave Farmar class. I had only intended to do 20 minutes, but the massage felt so good I just kept going. I had also lit candles and brought in the space heater, so it was the perfect serene environment (plus I had the time, which is always a huge bonus 😉 )
Showered, dressed, make-uped and came down for an even better surprise….an Almond Banana Muffin! This guy is a new flavor in the Great Harvest rotation. A twist on banana nut! I think it’s whole grain, and it wasn’t very oily at all, so I’d say it’s a pretty healthy choice (that is if you don’t eat the whole thing since it’s majorly jumbo)
Again, since I had time, I made myself a full out breakfast –
Banana Pumpkin Cream Oats
- 1/4 cup Scottish oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/3 cup pumpkin, stirred in at end
- Cinnamon, vanilla, pinch salt
- ~1/3 crumbled muffin
- Costco PB
There were oats under all that muffin!! Sadly, I slightly overcooked them and they were on the dry side. I like my oats a bit liquidy!
Yesterday we had a fabulous presentation on bariatrics. Today’s is a clinical care review presented by dietitians from one of the local hospitals. I am learning more in these crash courses than I did all semester! It’s so nice to be able to just LISTEN and not worry about taking notes or memorization or freaking out about a test you have later on.
We get out earlier today – I think around 2PM – so see ya when I see ya!
