Egg in my Oatmeal

Hey guys! The past few days I’ve had the mindset to post morning and night but the holidays have literally snuck up on my ass and have kept my nights pretty crazy. By the time I’m done, looking at my computer screen is honestly the last thing I want to do. I’ve been waking up to a butt load of text messages from friends sent around 9 pm that start out friendly and then quickly become grumpy texts because they think they’re being ignored. Oh the glories of going to bed early and waking up early.

Last night was another busy night. Both of my parents had holiday parties to attend, so I was in charge of the pup. By the time I got to him it was around 5:30. We played quickly, fed the meowing cat, and then jumped into my car to run errands.

He had fun making me freeze to death while he stuck his head out the window as we drove around town to hit up the library, grocery store, and gas station.

This is Kip’s “I mean business face.” I made him about 20 minutes late for his typical dinner and I could easily tell he wasn’t pleased with my shenanigans.

I went a little crazy at the library and picked up quite the assortment of books.

2 Christmas books: one a romance and one a mystery, and then a summer-ish book. I usually only leave with a max of 2 books, but I couldn’t choose between the Christmas books so I said screw it and left like a nerd with 3 books.

Oh and the highlight of my trip and night? Buy one get one free on tubs of Cool Whip! I had an Apple Pie Quest Bar that I wanted for dessert last night and part of my trip to the grocery store was to find a “healthier” option for a topping. Bingo!!

Along with Walden Farms pancake syrup, this baby was a knock-out! It seriously tasted like warm apple pie.

Since I ate about half of one of the Cool Whip tubs last night (addicting!), I wasn’t sure how I’d feel this morning, but I was surprised when I got a great 4 mile run in FIVE minutes quicker than usual. What the?! I honestly do think I can attribute this to my strength training and working with a personal trainer the past 5 ½ weeks. The improvements I’ve seen are really blowing me away. Best $$$$ I’ve probably ever spent.

Morning Workout

• 4 mile run
• 4 sets of 15 stair push-ups
• 10 burpees with bicep curl to overhead press
• 50 crunches and 50 side-to-side crunches
• 1 minute plank hold and :30 second holds each side
• 50 heel touchers
• 2 sets of 20 plank tucks
• Stretching

I felt so good this morning after that workout! Talk about a great way to start your Friday.

Today at work we have our holiday party, and since us girls in the Marketing Department oversee it, we get to start setting up in a little bit. Since I knew my morning and day was going to be a little different, I made sure to eat a filling breakfast since I’ll be in “go-go-go” mood very shortly.

Breakfast

This morning I whipped up a bowl of peanut butter banana oatmeal, but this time I spiced it up a little. Along with my usual additions of chia seeds, flax, cinnamon and Truvia, I included an egg white and a little vanilla protein powder. I’ve seen this idea pop up on blogs and Instagram, and figured this morning was the best day for it.

This had to have been one of the better bowls of oatmeal I’ve had! I love the addition of the egg, which you can’t even taste. I put a dollop of peanut butter on top before leaving for work, and when I sat down at my desk, it had melted everywhere. So. Amazing. Holy. Schnikes.

Now that I’m full, I have a little bit of work to do before a fun afternoon and evening full of a Yankee Swap with the marketing girls, amazing food, an ugly sweater contest and a white elephant gift exchange with the entire company.

  1. How are you liking your new watch so far? Do you have to wear a chest strap with it? I’ve been wanting to buy one for a while, but I hate the idea of having the wear that strap every time. Maybe it’s not as big of a deal as I’m thinking it is though?

    PS that menu sounds delicious!!

      I LOVEEE the watch, it’s awesome, and yes you do have to wear a chest strap but you honestly get used to it and I never realize I’m wearing it. Almost went into the shower with it! I talked to several friends beforehand and they said they same thing that you really don’t notice it after you get into your workout.
