This morning, I had a date with an old friend.
Unfortunately, I stood my date up.
My bed was just feeling too darn comfy to leave it! And getting up anywhere between the 5am – 6am window can just feel downright horrific some days.
So I gave myself permission to sleep in (I had done all breakfast prep work the night before) and didn’t get up until 7:15. Of course, then I was rushed to get ready, didn’t have time for a cup of coffee and ran out of gas on my way into work.
However– like I said, I managed to do most breakfast prep last night, so all I had to do was open up my container once I got to work and stir. Also luckily, there is a coffee pot here at the office and I was able to brew up a whole batch of fresh coffee as soon as I got here this morning.
In other news, breakfast this morning came in the form of overnight pumpkin “proatmeal”, complete with half a banana and extra almond milk on top.
In today’s oats:
-1/2 cup oats
-1/2 cup almond milk
-1 tbs. peanut butter
-1 tbs. agave
-1/4 of a scoop of VCORE vanilla bean protein powder
-1 1/2 tbs. pumpkin puree
In other news, I’m hoping to head straight to the gym after work today. I have to train arms and shoulders, and since the gym closes early on Fridays (6pm), I planned accordingly and have my handy dandy gym bag all set and ready to go out in the car.
I also have this thing in my head where at some point, I plan on having a pair of workout shoes from every brand. So far, I have Nike, Asics, Reebok and Adidas covered. Next on the horizon- some pr-etty snazzy POLO tennis shoes I found online.
Hopefully I can snag them up before the “free shipping” promise goes away! 😉
