Oh boy. I did not think I was going to be able to get out of bed this morning! With only 6 hours of sleep my eyeballs were glued shut. And having beer in my system didn’t helpBut after a shower and some liquids, I feel much better. It’s gonna be a long day – and an even longer weekend because our flight to New York leaves at 6AM tomorrow, meaning we’ll have to get up at 3-something. Don’t know when I’ll be able to catch up on sleep!!
My wake-up breakfast was a smoothie – transportable cause I gotta leave in just a second (after eating the granola off the top :mgreen: ) and replenishing.
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 frozen banana
- ~1/3 cup frozen fresh pineapple
- 1 packet Amazing Meal Pom – Mango flavor
- 1/4 cup raw rolled oats – for energy, fiber, stable blood sugar and fun!
To be honest, not the most delicious mix I have ever eaten.
That is TOTALLY E.T.’s head!!! Rotate your neck.
(And funny because someone said yesterday that my 7 looked like ET’s head and I laughed hysterically. I love E.T.)
christie @ honoring health says
Aw, I love ET too. I watched that movie a million times when I was a kid.
The Paris Food Blague says
oh feel better! That is ET’s head, yes! Does it feel gross drinking alien brain?
I hope to see you in New York. Chin up, rest up!
Jessica @ How Sweet It Is says
Hopefully you can sneak in a cat nap tonight Kath! 🙂
Freya @ foodfitnessandfreya.wordpress.com says
errh ET creeps me out :s
smoothies are so hit and miss sometimes; I made one the other day and it was one of the most disgusting things I’d ever had, yet I’d changed one minor ingredient from the first time I made it, when it was delicious!! Weird :s
Maybe you could sleep on the plane tomorrow? Have a good day anyways 🙂
Chelsea (Chelsea's Chew and Run Fun) says
That is unmistakably E.T’s head. Hard to deny it! That is also an extremely energizing breakfast, though it may not have suited your taste buds fancy. Have a great Friday and a safe trip to NYC!
Hangry Pants says
E.T. is scary.
Happy Birthday Matt.
Have a safe trip. I am sad I won’t get to see you. 🙁
I love the new picture of you with the pink fleece that comes up in the right corner – you look adorable.
Penny (Blonde Bibliophile) says
Oh geez, I have sympathy for you. I HATE being sleep deprived. It is the worst feeling ever. Good luck!
I always cried like crazy when the awful goverment people took ET away. Than I came to a point where I wouldn’t watch the movie because of it. I haven’t seen it since. 🙂
Angela (The Lady Loves to Eat) says
I hate ET! I feel you on the no sleeping it 4am here right now and i have to be at work in an hour 🙁
Kath- its so interesting seeing how you are handling being on the go so much more often than you are used to. You’re doing a great job!
Morgan @ Life After Bagels says
plan to sleep on the plane at least!
Hey Kath! Have a great trip to NYC.
The Healthy Hostess says
How do you eat smoothies in the freezing winter?! I have tried, but I just can’t do it. It leaves me chilled to the bone. They always look so good though.
I have my glucose test for the baby today so no sugar for me all day – which means I am craving sugar and your smoothie. At least this is just more proof that a strict diet does not work – not allowing yourself to have something always makes you want it more. I can tough it out for a day though – especially for medical/baby reasons!
I blast my space heater!!
Marisa (Loser for Life) says
Aaawwww, I love ET. Embarassed to say that I actually had an E.T. doll that had a heart that lit up. Yes, I was THAT dorky!
Enjoy your day, Kath! Hope the coffee kicks in for ya!
I had the doll too!!
i heart ET too!! I’m so glad you guys had fun at dinner last night + sooooo glad I didn’t go now [see b+b]
I’m running on only about 6 hours of sleep, too, and I’m so tired! It’s amazing how just a few more hours of sleep can change your entire outlook on or feeling about the day.
Have a great day at work! Try to get some sleep later:)
Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) says
I see ET! 😀
Uggh I hate those mornings and don’t miss them at all. Your smoothie did look yummy tho
Simply Life says
sounds like a great combo with the pineapple!
My sister won an E.T Doll from Brownies when we were kids, I had wanted it. One of my uncles also had one the finger used light up when it said E.T go home (can’t remember the exact words).
I also liked ALF and there was a raffle for a stuffed one when I was in elementary school, when the little girl who won got it everyone rushed to touch it.
The good ole days
Paige(Running Around Normal) says
What a busy weekend!
Hahah it really does look like ET’s head. Have a great day, today!
smoothies never seem to fill me up for very long. maybe i’m not putting the right things in them? I should try oats, but I’m nervous!
Yay for Friday! Looks like you’ll need to catch some shut eye on the plane! Especially since you’re heading to the city that never sleeps. 😉
have another fun day! I love seeing everything you are getting to do with your internship!! 🙂
Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg says
lol…ET scared the CRAP out of me when I was a little, and I’ve never watched it again!
Hope you have a great day, despite feeling a little “less than stellar” 🙂
Julie @savvyeats says
Totally ET’s head!
Sleep on the plane!
Cait (Cait's Plate) says
HAHA! I totally see ET’s head!!
I hear ya on not being able to get out of bed. I’ve actually felt that way this whole week. It has NOT been easy!
Have a safe trip!
PS – There were “26” comments when I added mine!! It’s good luck!
Heather @ The Joyful Kitchen says
haha! totally looks like ET’s head! i remember watching ET in spanish when I was in middle school…”ET telefono mi casa!” instead of “ET phone home!” 🙂
Casey (@Spicy&Sweet) says
Only six hours of sleep is rough—I totally agree. I need at LEAST 7! Birthdays are worth it though. 🙂
Happy weekend Kath! 🙂
Have fun in NY! 🙂
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope says
That smoothie sounds PERFECT Kath! Enjoy your day!
haha I totally see the E.T. He scared the crap out of me as a kid. I don’t personally remember it — perhaps blocking out a traumatizing experience, but my mom tells me that he terrified me. I have come to love him though. haha Have so much fun in NY!
Sarah R says
Not going to lie–ET always freaked me out. Happy Friday!!!
Shannon (The Daily Balance) says
ET is the cutest! i loved that movie!!! The Mister HAS NEVER SEEN IT! He always turns me down every time I try and get him to — i must do something about that!
I had to force myself out of bed this morning as well! Hahah – I see ETs head but I haven’t seen that movie. I know I’m missing out on a classic!
I agree, definitely ETs head. Love it!
Have a great Friday!
hi kath. i bragged to my trainer at the gym this morning about your overnight oats and am now eating some sort of sunflower seed, dried coconut, banana, yogurt, pumpkin butter and kashi 7 grains creation that i would have never dreamed off had it not been for this blog!! enjoy your trip to the city: )
Anne [email protected] Weigh of Life says
It definitely does look like ET’s head! That’s hysterical!
have a good friday! i love your coffee creatures.
Matt’s birthday dinner looked delicious and perfect for him!
Just added ET to my netflix que 🙂
ellen eats beets says
LOVE ET! What a bossy character. And you are making me crave a smoothie girl!
Emily Eats and Exercises says
I was terrified of ET when I was little. I had this blanket on my bed with a bear on it and for some reason I thought if I touched the bear in my sleep I would turn into ET. I spent a few sleepless nights lying cold outside my covers being afraid to roll over. Weird, I know.
Good luck with your tired day.
Allison K says
Does that amazing meal have the chalky taste of other protein powders?
Just a little. I usually use 1/2 a packet which is better than a whole.
Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) says
I love that you still added the granola on a breakfast-to-go. I have a feeling I’ll be having many breakfastes on the go starting Tuesday, so I’m keeping the smoothies in mind. 😉
Hope you can catch up on some mucho needed sleep!!
Whoa!! It does look EXACTLY like ET!
Totally looks like ET! Hopefully you can grab some sleep on the flight or get to bed super early tonight. Good luck!
Lauren @ Eater not a runner says
Aw hope you get to catch up on sleep at some point!
[email protected] says
ET, so sad!! I am envious of your 6 hours a sleep! I average less than that most nights, definitely not a good thing!
I never like smoothies with pineapple in them for some reason. I love pineapples though, weird, right?
Jessica @ The Process of Healing says
At least you got something green into you first thing!!!
And I love how you always see the coolest pictures in your foods and drinks!
Sometimes smoothies hit me weird which is odd, because I usually love ’em
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
i’ve got such a special place in my heart for e.t. – it was the first film i ever saw in the theater.
GAH! I hate ET! He scares me! **running away from this post like I ran from the theater with I was a kid**
I agree with Michelle. Was anyone else petrified of E.T? When I was younger, that movie scared the sh*t out of me and when he screamed meeting Eliot, I screamed too!
I was looking at your oats on top of your shake and couldn’t see E.T. and was turning my head just to move the mouse a bit and realize you were talking about your coffee… wow. Thank goodness it’s a 3 day weekend.. I need to rest this frazzled brain of mine! 🙂
Enjoy the trip!
Oh yea! Your 7 totally does look like E.T.!
Cynthia (It All Changes) says
Smoothies are great for a quick breakfast. Getting breakfast in even if you do sleep in a bit is key.
