Happy Hump Day friends!! Did you all get your day started off on the right foot?
I know I sure did! I scooted my behind out to the gym this morning and loaded up on some cardio. I ran 3 miles on the treadmill, walked for about another half, then hopped on the elliptical for another 35 minutes. Normally when I use the elliptical, I’ll just use the manual setting, but today I decided to give the “interval course” a test run. I’m so glad I did – what a great burn! Those hills are killerrrrr.
I expected to be completely famished by the time I made it back home, but surprisingly enough, I was actually not feeling that hungry. (Quick, somebody call the doctor, this is not normal for this gal!) I knew I still needed to eat something, and was definitely craving some kind of food, but just couldn’t figure out what the heck it was. End result: a little mix of everything!
I started by finishing up the last of my Carrot Raisin Manna Bread , spread with a little honey butter on top. Looks like it’s time to grab a new loaf out of the freezer! Hopefully the next one is as good as this one was…I’m thinking maybe Fruit & Nut will be my next victim. Mwaahahaha.
The next thing I knew, I kind of just started throwing a bunch of stuff into a mug. At first, it was going to be cereal, then I realized I had half of a plain Chobani in the fridge from yesterday’s cantaloupe soup recipe, so that got tossed in too. Despite being a little bit of an awry preparation, it certainly didn’t let me down in the flavor department!
Actually, combining the little bit of yogurt with the milk made quite a creamy consistency that I was totally diggin’.
And of course, you can never go wrong with fresh strawberries & blueberries!
This afternoon, I’m headed out again to run more errands (i.e., on the hunt for a birthday present for the hubby AND Cody.) Yes, both my of my guys share the same birthday, which is Sunday, but neither of them have given me any insight into what they would enjoy for their birthday.
I mean, I would expect it from Jay, but c’mon Cody…help your mama out!
“Just gimme the catnip, Mom. That’s the STUFF.”
Don’t you just love when they’re so helpful??? I have a couple ideas, but really, I’m just going in blind – so wish me luck!!
Question for the Morning:
Do you find it easy to shop for your significant other? Do you usually wing it, or do they give you clues?
