Eeeeek my day has definitely got like THIS so far:
Yes that is smashed cake. I’m just having one of those days where I think I should have stayed in bed….we all know everyone has them! It’s actually quite humorous all that has gone wrong today. And I’m not writing this to complain at ALL, I actually think it’s funny now! Here’s what happened:
This morning the internet was down (gahhh)
I banged my head (hard!) in the freezer at work
I put splenda in my tea and 30 minutes later got a migraine. I KNOW better…this is 100% my own fault!
I accidentally walked right into a breakfast meeting full of 70 men and one guy was in the middle of his speech……oops
My cake fell apart coming out of the cake pan and I had to redo the entire thing
And I can’t find unsweetened coconut flakes anywhere to save my life!!!!!!!!
Okay. That’s out of my system! I’m seriously not even in a bad mood right now, it’s just one of those days!!!!!
Let’s move on to the POSITIVE though! I completely 100% mastered the art of the breakfast cookie this morning and found a lifelong breakfast staple in my house……
Using 1/2 cup oats and 1/2 mashed banana makes ALL the difference because it really firmed up last night and was much more “cookie-like” this morning! I guess using more starch and less liquid is totally the trick…and it was very filling and held me over 3 hours just how I like my breakfasts to be. I used 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1/2 mashed banana, 2 tbsp silk and 1 huge spoonful almond butter. It was aaaaamazing!!!! Perfectly filling. I’ll have another please!
Around 9:30 I had a pure protein bar:
And then around 11:30 I had a hot bowl of my split pea soup for lunch along with a baggie of kiwi and grapes.
I got home around 3:30, STARVING, and ate half of a bagel that I made this morning at work with a big spoonful of peanut butter and blackberry preserves:
And I’m totally ready to release all my poopy day frustrations at BodyPump tonight! The class is from 5:30-6:30 so I’m leaving here in about 45 minutes. This will be my first time trying this class and I hear its intense. Good, I need it right now!
Today Adam did brighten my day by bringing me a quart of his family’s maple syrup!
His family lives on a farm in Vermont and really does bottle and sell this stuff themselves. Pretty cool! They also grow all organic veggies!! 🙂
I was SO excited to get this syrup because a) I can’t afford it myself and b) now I can FINALLY make some raw vegan macaroons! I took home some almond powder from work and then went and searched everywhere for unsweetened coconut flakes so I could make them tonight and have them dehydrate in my oven overnight tonight……..however, NO ONE carries unsweetened coconut here!!!!!!! I am so disappointed! Not sure what to do now…I guess I could just make them with sweetened coconut or I could find somewhere online that sells the good stuff and order it. Boo!
I’m off to do some laundry then hit the gym! See you tonight!
