Rude Awakening

I’m a wee bit sleepy today. My silly cat woke me up at 5 am this morning. I don’t actually know what she was doing, but it seemed like she was chasing her tail all over my bed while I was trying to sleep in it. It was pretty funny, but I did not want to be getting up that early, that’s for sure!

I did make a pretty stellar breakfast this morning though.

  • 1/2 cup oats, chocolate hemp milk, water
  • 1 thinly sliced banana
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • 1 tbsp (or so) peanut butter
  • pumpkin butter
  • carob chips

To accompany this gorgeous bowl of oats, I had a glass of Happy Planet Mango Peach Party.

Yeah, it was a good as it looks 🙂

I was totally going to bike to work today, but when I got up, it was cloudy and looked like it was about to rain at any minute. Well, by the time I left work, it was sunny and 25 C out! I hate that! At least it means we’ll have decent weather for Skating Boot Camp tonight 🙂

Lunch was almost identical to yesterday, starting with chicken & smoked oyster gumbo. This time I took the picture from the side, to prove there is brown basmati rice in there!

Fruit? Also the same – honeydew melon and strawberries.

But to keep it from totally being a repeat, I grabbed the last few nuts out of two packages of Sahale Snacks. Still working on cleaning out the cupboards!

It is a pretty colourful lunch though, eh?

Now I’m just wasting time, watching the news, until it’s time to head out to boot camp. I think we’re running again today. Not my fave, but I’ll still go. I like the social aspect of it, and in only a couple short months, I’ll be moving, so I won’t get to see all my skating peeps here anymore. Time to go sit on the couch!

    Love the breakfast. I had never thought of using chocolate milk with oats, I think it’s an excellent idea, especially with the pb!

    Hope boot camp is stimulating, and rewarding!

    So I’ve decided that the next time I am in Canada, I am inviting myself over for breakfast.

    Love the chocolate oats – I need to pick up some non-dairy chocolate milk.

    That Sahale snack mix doesn’t last more than a few days at my place. My kid could live on it, I swear! Too bad it’s so pricey.

    Love your dessert b-fast! Anything with chocolate in it works for me. 😉
