“He’s a maaaaaaniac, MAAAniac that’s for sure.”
“And he’s runnin’ around this house crazier than ever beforrrrre!”
Yes, I have one crazy, wacky cat.
Cody has been running around the house like a maniac since the time I got up this morning. The entire time I was on the treadmill, he was constantly on the move: bolting up and down the stairs, chasing after a bottle cap, chasing his tail in circles while on the stairs, trying to wedge himself underneath the gap in the treadmill (while it was on an incline), and now he’s pouncing from couch to couch. He’s knocked over a picture frame, a stack of magazines, and almost got my iced coffee. I don’t know what he got into, but whatever it is, I want some. Talk about some energy!
I started my morning off with my favorite 45 minute treadmill interval walk. I’m still experiencing some annoying hip pain and didn’t want to push things too far by running this morning. I have some extra stretching planned for later today, so hopefully that will help ease up some tension?
Dare I say that today’s breakfast almost tasted like a super decadent dessert bowl?
I delicious bowl of oats with lots of toppings was on the menu for today. We are out of bananas in this house right now (gasp!) so I had to go sans bananers. I almost missed the fluffy banana poofs, except for the fact that I had one of my favorite toppings to use today…
-1/3 cup oats
-1/3 vanilla almond milk
-1/3 cup water
-cinnamon & nutmeg
-a delicious granola blondie!!
You might remember the last time I had made granola blondies,they quickly became a favorite oatmeal topping. Well, since I snagged a couple to take in my “doggy bag” from Saturday’s blogger brunch, I had the opportunity to recreate my favorite bowl. Granola Blondie oats = <—that’s me!
Along with my oatmeal, I enjoyed a nice glass of iced coffee. Usually I make my iced coffee the night before and just refrigerate it, but didn’t think of it last night. So this morning, I just double brewed my coffee (double the amount of coffee, use the same amount of water that you normally use) and then poured it over a glass full of ice. It works perfect! Add in some vanilla almond milk and you’ve got a quick, delicious glass ‘o caffeine.
In case you were incredibly busy like I was this weekend, and missed some blog posts, here’s a little bit to catch ya back up!
