Spring Already?!

by jenna on February 16, 2010

Happy Tuesday!

I had these totally horrible nightmares all night then woke up with a killer headache. Very, very weird. Sipping on some tea though and taking it easy, hoping it will fade away soon :(

Chia oats for breakfast!

I used 1/3 cup oats, 1 T chia seeds, 1/3 cup soymilk, 1/2 cup water, blueberries, blackberries, almond butter and cinnamon.
It’s SPRING outside! Excited for outdoor bootcamp with Anna, Michaela and Lisa followed by an afternoon of writing in my backyard. :)
Have a great morning!

I’m glad I finally learned why chia seeds are all the rage. Hope your headache goes away. Enjoy the beautiful Sonoma County day!

Hope you’re feeling better soon! Sometimes nightmares help me work through crap I’m dealing with during the day…the headache that follows is no fun though!

Have a great day :)

Feel better! I wanted to comment on your hair… I absolutely LOVE it all bouncy & volumized. i think it looks amazing, and there is a big difference even between that picture and some of the first ones you posted of your dark do! I think the volume really adds to the drama of it- in a good (great!) way.

Jenna @ Eating Green, Staying Lean February 16, 2010 at 1:18 pm

Hey, the hair looks great! I’ve always been a brunette (almost black) but have never tried dying it…I’m too much of a wuss, haha. Also, that oat mixture this morning looks completely delicious!
