Well oddly enough I managed to have a pretty productive and satisfying day. No, I’m not at all the master of biochemistry…but I feel less lost. ^_^
Breakfast started my day off right with a delicious batch of Kodiak Cakes topped with a little butter, a drizzle of maple syrup and almond butter, and a handful of fresh strawberries. Is it funny that I like my pancakes very thin? They taste better that way. I always have one pancake I prefer in my batch and it’s always the thinnest one. Most likely due to being less doughy and thus less bread like to my mouth. No wonder I love crepes!
Meh. Today has been one of those days where I have a list of things I should be doing but I just can’t bring myself to do any of it…=/ It’s bad. I have 5 more weeks left of school and I can’t bring myself to study!!
This morning I finished of my box of Weetabix with some toasted almonds and dried apricots. I’m going to work on my hot cereal stash for awhile so I have less to move when we find a new apartment in July. Weetabix will be sadly missed!
Next I walked to work and ended up grabbing another short nonfat ristretto 1 pump vanilla, 1 pump mocha, no whip, mocha at Starbucks. I somehow forgot to take a picture though!
Thanks to all the readers who have entered Blueberries and Oats 2 year anniversary giveaway! If you haven’t entered already, don’t forget to do so! I’ve really enjoyed hearing what you guys like about this blog.
Though I really wanted to sleep in today I was up with my alarm before 9am. Joan (my car) had an appointment for an oil change! I felt extremely shaky when I woke up so I didn’t even take a second thought when I threw together this somewhat odd breakfast of Weetabix and trail mix. Yeah…M&M’s in my cereal was a bit different.
Having a really bad night so sorry this is gonna be wordless.
Arg! My throat’s been sore and gunky all day. -_- As odd as it may sound, I’m hoping it’s just allergies and not me coming down with something. Sorry to say but I had a pretty boring day. Then again, I don’t think I’ve ever riveted any of you with my life so why start now. ~.^
The first thing I did this morning was rush to my computer to submit my add classes form for next year. I tried to add a cooking class but it turned out to be in conflict (by a mere 50 min! Pfft!) with a class I have to take so it was a no. I did however get into the Intuitive Eating and other Philosophies class! I’m soo excited to take it even though I already know the stuff. I feel like I can’t hear the ideas enough.
Then it was business as usually: shower, dress, breakfast! Again, Weetabix, banana, toasted almonds, craisins. My throat really really enjoyed this. I’m out of fresh fruit to put on my cereal though and have no toasted nuts so I may just surprise you all tomorrow by having something different. =P
Hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day! I was happy to get to chat with my mum on the phone this morning but it made me want to visit even more! <3 This photo was taken when I was 5 years old with my late Aunt Jo, my mum, and my sister. Aren’t we just the cutest things in our hats and boots!
Sorry this is a day late but Chase and I had a little date night last night and went and saw the new Iron Man movie! It was a lot of fun. =) Here’s how my day went:
I was determined not to let the same thing that happened on Friday, happen yesterday. That meant starting my day with a big substantial breakfast! Kodiak Cakes with a little butter, drizzle of maple syrup, the last of the organic strawberries, and toasted walnuts. Love!
These easily kept me going through my 60 minute hill stationary bike ride. No sickness during or afterward. =)
So my new allergy pills have the side effect of “loss of appetite” which sounds like a good thing right? Well..I’m having issues with it now.
Breakfast for example was a hodge podge of things instead of my usual big hearty meal. I finally got to try a Chobani Flip in Key Lime Crumble flavor, along with a hard boiled egg and an orange. The Flip was tasty and Vinni approved, but a little too sweet. Something decent for when you’re really in the mood for a treat.
After this small breakfast, I hit the gym for a sweaty 60 minute hill stationary bike. I was going to go 30 more minutes to make up for taking Monday off but honestly my body screamed no.
Ahh! It’s the start of my 3-day weekend and I.AM.EXCITED! I have no exams to study for so I should (WILL) get a lot of my end of quarter projects done with and out of the way. This quarter has been all about unloading stress where it’s needed and so that’s what I’m going to do.
My stomach completely surprised me this morning by not being starving for breakfast. I thought for sure with my lack of snackage last night that it would be growling! Still, I made myself a refreshing bowl of Quaker Oatmeal Squares with organic strawberries, toasted almonds, and raisins. You know…I’m not entirely sure I actually like Quaker Oatmeal Squares in milk. In yogurt, yes; by the handful, hell yes! But in milk they kind of are…lackluster? I guess I’m a Weetabix or popped amaranth girl after all!
So I got 10 hours of sleep last night by going to bed at 8pm. Yeah..I got up after eating dinner and watching a little TV to force myself to put my workout clothes on…and fell into bed instead. I'm 100% blaming my allergies and allergy medication. I just looked at the side effects this morning and went “Oh wow. So that's what's wrong with me!”
Anyway sorry this post is a day late!
Breakfast was good ol' Weetabix, fresh organic strawberries, toasted walnuts, and craisins. It felt so good on my itchy and dry throat.
