A.M. Dates and “Proat-meal”

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.

Hello, gorgeous….

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.

—See that massive cup? Shane bought this for me last year. It’s amazing. Oh, and you can definitely double the amount of coffee you see here.

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

Guys- I know they aren’t pretty. But they taste DELICIOUS.

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.

gym bag orange sneakers—–I have a deep love of brightly colored workout shoes.

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! 😉
