Today started out super slow paced and relaxing. Joey woke up super early, therefore I was up earlier than usual. I’m the worst at sleeping in! I think my biological clock is permanently set to about 7:30-8AM whether its a weekday or a weekend. GRRRR!!! It’s so frustrating when you wanna sleep in!!!!
I woke up and whipped out this scrumptious bowl of overnight oatbran. I don’t know if anyone soaks oatbran overnight, but I like to do it because all the flavors soak in.
This bowl contained:
- 1/3 cup oatbran
- 1 cup water (plus a TBS more in the morning)
- 2 TBS ground flaxseed
- 1 truvia packet
- tons and tons of cinnamon
Morning Mix Ins:
- Vanilla protein powder
- 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/4 cup normal blueberries
- 2 TBS GoLean Crunch
- 1 TBS Naturally Nutty Peanut Butter
Along side I had a nice big cup of french press coffee with Silk Vanilla Creamer. Love this stuff!!!
I went back to sleep after doing some reading.
At 11:30 I finally got my lazy self out of bed, grabbed an apple, and headed out the door for Club Strength. Gym classes seem to be the easiest and most beneficial way for me to get a good workout in.
WHAT GYM CLASSES HAVE YOU DONE OR WANT TO TRY??
If you haven’t tried ZUMBA, I highly recommend. It’s a whole bunch of good working out disguised as dancing!!!
I came home and had a turkey and avocado sandwich that I scarfed down before I had time to take a picture. OOPS!
I had class tonight at 6pm so I brought this staple snack with me…
I got home and Joey was a busy bee in the kitchen cooking up a nice dinner of rosemary chicken (my fav-I’ll get the recipe up soon), roasted broccoli, caprese, and polenta slices. YUMOOOOO
Tomorrow I MUST do laundry first thing, then I have to get the house ready for my close friend Katie who is arriving from home!! Can’t wait to see her!!!!
Tomorrow evening kicks off the birthday weekend so prepare yourself for some kickass blogging pictures and fooding!!! oh yum!
I leave you with a good way to make oatmeal special and some chill music…
A Great Way To Turn Oatmeal Into a Special Occasion
I think since this coming weekend is my birthday weekend I’m going to try this recipe and spruce it up with a bunch of yummy goodies that I’m going to treat myself with.
I think this is a great way to turn your everyday oatmeal into a special occasion. Plus, there is great leftover potential here for the work week!!!!
