I totally didn’t realize it was the Fall Equinox yesterday until I was eating some overnight oats (with kiwi berries and cashew butter!) and I saw it on Facebook. :O How could I forget the equinox!?
I had the time to make a hot breakfast this morning…but all I wanted to eat was Weetabix! That’s right, Weetabix is back in the house! Listening to my body, I topped a bowl with banana, chopped up dried apricots, and toasted walnuts. Mmmmm I’d missed this.
Ahh it feels so good to have the last week of classes winding down. All I have left is one A&P lecture and one Experimental Foods lab tomorrow! I am almost in shock that the end is near!
Last night I had a completely bizarre dream where I went to a Joni Mitchell concert (who!?) and birthed a baby kitten. o.O Yeah….
Breakfast was Weetabix, fresh raspberries, and toasted walnuts. My goodness was my throat sore and itchy from allergies this morning and holy cow did this ice cold milk feel good on it. I almost wanted to get more milk just to keep soothing it!
I feel like I’m playing a game with my allergies. =( Will they win or will I? Today I’d like to think I did!
After having a really crazy strange dream where I woke up clutching my side, convinced I had a large gaping wound across it, (don’t ask!) I had a lovely breakfast of Weetabix, banana, toasted walnuts, and raisins. (I just realized I’m not 100% sure they even carry Weetabix back in my hometown in MT! O.O I better bring a box when we go on vacation!)
As I mentioned yesterday, my allergies are overcoming my medicine. Today I really felt that.
But before I cry about how much my body seems to hate me let me share with you this adorable photo Chase took this morning of the baby. ^_^ Yep, she’s precious.
On a kitty side note: Chase has informed me he’s looking into to toilet training the kittens once we move! O.O I told him good luck with that…
I really just wanted to stay in bed this morning, but since my body is adapting to my allergy pill and thus it’s wearing off faster, I actually felt hungry! I was up and out of bed before 9am because I had some Kodiak Cakes to make! Dressed with a little butter, a drizzle of maple syrup, fresh raspberries and drippy almond butter. (Clearly I put toasted walnuts on first then ended up picking them off and grabbing the AB. I just wasn’t feeling the walnuts.)
Ug. I have no good reason for it but I feel really stressed out at this moment. Just this overall feeling like there’s so much I should be doing, yet I cannot name any of it. I apologize if this post seems terse.
Breakfast was applesauce oatmeal topped with a spoonful of Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams and some raisins. Gods am I in love with flavored nut butters! This summer I am seriously going to make a plethora of my own!
I spent the next few hours finishing up my experimental foods lab report. I started to feel a bit nauseous so before it hit me full on I decided to get my butt to the gym for a 60 minute hill stationary bike ride. Success!
Well it is finally the end of May!! I’d have to say my May Challenge to be alcohol free was a success. Honestly, it wasn’t that hard. Okay on Cinco de Mayo I did really really want to have a margarita but just like trigger food I just had to remind myself that I can have one any time I want after this month. It made it so much easier.
That said I am psyched to drink some wine again!! How did the challenge go for you?
Anyway, this morning I totally had time to make a hot breakfast but all my body wanted was an ice cold bowl of milk with Weetabix, banana, raisins, and toasted walnuts. Hey, gotta listen right? I’ve been waking up extremely hot this week so oddly enough I need this to cool me down.
I started my day with another Weetabix bowl with chopped up dried apricots and toasted walnuts. Then I got to school early to try and prepare myself for my AP exam. I don’t feel like it went that well. =/ I felt like I was just guessing most of the time. Oh well..
Sorry this is a day late! Chase surprised me by wanting to spend all yesterday evening with me so we finished the whole season 7 of Dexter and nothing else. ^_^ It was nice.
My morning started with a really hot bowl of reheated oatmeal (1/3 cup raw old fashioned oats, 1 tbsp hot cereal mix) with unsweetened applesauce and cinnamon mixed right in. On top I drizzled almond butter and tossed on some raisins. It was certainly tasty but I had some issues with the temperature. It just warmed my body (already overheated from shower + blow dryer) too much. I hate being that sweaty when I’m trying to do my hair and put on makeup. =/ I either need to give myself more time to eat and cool off, thus getting up earlier or not have oatmeal until school’s out and I have time for it!
