Woahhh am I a sleepy girl today! I feel like I woke up every 10 minutes last night….I HATE that. And the time change didn’t help too much either. I have got to fix my black out curtains asap. When the alarm went off at 3:00 my eyes were burning and I hobbled downstairs to brew some VERY strong coffee to take to work. It helped, but made me so jittery I couldn’t work the scale to weigh the dough out on! Eventually though, the jitters sort of wore off and we finished everything by 11:30 and decided to go home 40 minutes early….all three of us were hurting! I did have an AWESOME snack this morning though!
Odwalla people, can I just tell you that I love you??! Seriously, these bars are totally rocking my world and this one tasted just like a big soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookie! I have one left (the berry one) and can’t wait to try it.
I broke early for breakfast this morning just because I was so tired, jittery and hungry. Here’s my yummy oatmeal made with 3/4 cup oats, water, 1/2 banana, 1/2 scoop protein powder, chocolate chips (!!) and almond butter
Look at those chocolate chips melt into deliciousness!!! I need to start adding these babies to my morning bowl way more often. Chocolate is always appropriate at all hours of the day, obvi.
This breakfast was super filling this morning and all I was craving when I came home from work was a smoothie. Sometimes when I don’t get enough sleep, my tummy gets all funny and my ibs starts to flair up (does this happen to anyone else?!) and a smoothie was the perfect remedy. Here’s what went into the glorious vita-mix today:
One mango (they were on sale 5 for $5!), pineapple, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 tbsp ground flax and 1 cup unsweetened vanilla hempmilk. Great combo of tropical fruit, protein and omega 3s!
My mom is just as tired as I am because she’s been up since 4 am traveling home from a business trip. We both were raiding the kitchen for something sweet and ended up splitting a macaroon. It did the trick!
I’m going to pull myself together now and head out for a 40 minute bike ride. I think some sunshine will do me good!
See you for dinner!
