GASP!!!! It’s been months since I’ve seen a roach in here – why today!?!? I think he’s dead but I am not going anywhere near him to find out. (This photo was obviously taken on zoom) The thought of sucking him into the vacuum hose with a nice crunch sends chills down my spine, so I’ll just leave him here until the husband comes home. Fortunately I am headed out now!
I gave myself 30 minutes extra sleep last night, and then stayed in bed listening to (depressing) NPR for an extra 30 or so. Since I don’t have to be uptown until 10 or so, I knew I had the time. I debated saving my workout for the afternoon, going running outside, taking the day off, but when I visualized all of these things, I knew getting up and going would leave me the most satisfied to start the day. So I went. I actually had a fantastic workout! 45 minutes on the ET with Women’s Health followed by a 10 minute cool down on the stat bike and 5 minutes of abs.
Then I came home and made this huge bowl of oatmeal mess –
- 1/3 cup oats, milk, water, salt (skipped the banana today – gasp! – because they are still underripe and the pumpkin would serve as my thickening binder)
- 1/4 cup wheatberries
- 1/2 cup pumpkin (stirred in near end)
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese (stirred in at end)
- Pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Tbsp ground flax
- Tbsp pumpkin butter, swirled in
- Spoonful EF PB
- A sprinkle of Kashi Good Friends CinnaRaisin Crunch
- And a partridge in a pear tree
Plus Yerba Mate Dark Roast tea. I like this stuff, but honestly, it’s like weak coffee. But I didn’t feel like making coffee. I added a drizzle of Agave and some milk to it.
I am headed to the car place with my flashcards, then to take my exam at 11, and hopefully home in time for lunch with the hub. I’m not ready for this exam, but some quick math told me that I can get a -27 on it and still pass the class. Since I’m taking it at the community college just to check off my R.D. requirements, I’m not too worried about how I do in it. Pressure’s off! The rest of the day I’ll be studying Organic (on Friday) and Foodservice (which is tomorrow) and joining my friend Michelle to celebrate her birthday for dinner tonight!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHELLE!!!!!!!!!!!!
