Oh how I missed my oatmeal pancakes!!! I can tell my body is on vacation because I slept until 7:30 this morning – with the alarm going off at 6:30 at which point I decided I should wait until the sun came up. After pittering around the house, changing all the bedding (comforter cover and all), vacuuming and doing some cleaning, we set off for the gym.
When I got up I had a cup of tea and a piece of toast to tide my hunger until after my workout. I always wake up really hungry and have to eat something first thing. Toast is my favorite 🙂 It’s just filling enough to keep my stomach from growling but just light enough to not feel like a real breakfast.
I topped it with a little jam, Smart Balance, and PB:
400 kcal burned at the gym. Stairmaster, elliptical, upper body lifting. And when we emerged from the dark gym, the blue sky made an appearance! YAY!! I hate it when it’s dreary on my days off.
We got home, showered, vacuumed more and by the time I’d made an oatmeal pancake and a soy latte, it was 11:15!! The husband made his breakfast into brunch and had egg, ham, toast, and apple but I would rather have two meals, so I did a pancake and latte and will have lunch around 2 or so.
Breakfast calories: 350.
I’m all dressed up today so I don’t feel like a bum. First stop is Target, but I have no afternoon plans, so I might just curl up and read my book – Losing Julia – that my mother in law gave me for Christmas. I also want to keep cleaning our house (which makes me SOOO happy when things are clean) but I need to stock up on Method supplies at Target first!
Have a wonderful day.
