Ok guys, it appears that I need a break. =/ I just don’t even have time to cry so I don’t have time to blog then either! I wanted to show you my Sunday because it was pretty special but then I’m gonna be gone for at least a week.
Sunday started off with a lovely bowl of pumpkin oats topped with a spoonful of TJ’s Pumpkin Butter and craisins. Loved the warmth it brought me.
So I had pretty much the most amazing morning…which I shouldn’t have! I got up at 6am, without any alarm and decided to relax.
So I made a bowl of pumpkin oatmeal topped with a spoonful of cashew butter, craisins, and maple syrup and ate it slowly in bed while I read my favorite book, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I ended up only eating 2/3 of the bowl, listening to my body.
Man days are just flying by. I can’t even remember what I told you all about yesterday. >.< Luckily I have a blog right? I can totally find out!
Ok so Monday started off with me suddenly wanting a hot breakfast. It’s funny how when I have a lot of time, like on Sunday’s, I normally don’t want one but when I have somewhere to be, I do! Well I managed to fit in a hot bowl of 8 grain hot cereal mixed with organic canned pumpkin, pumpkin spice, maple syrup, and dried cranberries. Loved it! I ended up needing some more texture though so later I added a small spoonful of chunky peanut butter.
For some reason not exactly clearly known to me, I’m super stressed at the moment. Seriously, I couldn’t stop eating cheese and Wheat Thins after dinner even after saying how full I was. From my own experience, I know this has to do with stress. =/ So I’m just gonna do a wordless tonight. Thanks all! I need to go breathe.
Ug. I am sorry this post about yesterday’s eats is so late. -_- I’ve been blowing my nose and feeling like crap all day long. =/ Let me try to remember yesterday through the haze…
Oh yeah! My Wednesday started off really really early (5am!) with a breakfast at Starbucks. You see I can get a free drink 30 minutes before my shift ^_^ and 30% off everything else so it cost me less than $2 for a doppio ristretto with hot water, one raw sugar, and half and half and an oatmeal with fresh blueberries and a fruit, nut, and seed medley. I’d never tried the new blueberry mix before, but I really love the fresh blueberries! The medley wasn’t that good and I really didn’t wanna touch the agave syrup, so next time I think I’ll just get the blueberries and the old nut medley.
Anyway while I slowly enjoyed my hot breakfast I read the most dense book for Advanced Nutrition Principles ever. I got through one page…
Wow, what a whirlwind of a vacation!! I really enjoyed taking the time off from blogging but now that I’m back I’m so excited to share everything, so let’s get started! ^_^
Our flight from Seattle left darn early on Thursday morning, so after a few hours of sleep at Waylon and Joey’s house, we were at the Sea-Tac grabbing a quick breakfast before the flight. I got a Perfect Oatmeal and mixed in the fruit and nut mix. Also enjoyed was a tall ristretto cappuccino. It was pretty yummy and filling! Did you know Starbucks has a blueberry oatmeal now? I didn’t! I wasn’t sure what all was in it so I opted for what I knew I liked, but sometime I wanna try it!
Even though it was back to the grind again, today turned out to be a pretty good day. No, I didn’t get to sleep in due to getting a phone call at 8am but it was still relaxing.
Since we had a bare fridge when we returned from vacation, my only option for breakfast was a steaming hot bowl of oatmeal cooked with 1/2 cup of Antioxidant Berry Blend and topped with a spoonful of homemade salted honey cashew butter. It took me over an hour to eat this bowl! Half way through I thought I was full, but then 20 minutes later I was famished! My stomach is being so strange now that it can feel again.
Happy Summer Solstice everyone! I’d like to say I was out and about enjoying the sunshine but alas, we had a cold dreary day today in Seattle so I stayed inside and got in some good leisure time.
My day started around 8:30am with a hot bowl of plain oatmeal mixed with TJ’s Fig Butter and almond butter. I’m not really sure what I think of this Fig Butter yet, but this bowl seriously lacked in the texture department!
After digesting I hit the gym first thing for a 60 minute hill stationary bike ride. By the time I got back, Chase was awake! It felt great to get that done with so I could relax.
Just doing a quick little post because Chase and I are going to watch a horror movie before bed! =D I LOVE horror movies. It’s so funny that I say that now because as a child I was the most scared little girl. Seriously, my sister Win was so deprived because I wouldn’t let her watch anything!
Anywho, breakfast was a nice hot bowl of banana oatmeal topped with banana, raisins and a spoonful of Dark Chocolate Dreams. <3
