Holy cow, what a morning. Whew! Luckily, it was nothing but a little inconvenient, but first, let me catch ya up to speed on this weekend.
Now, back to this morning. In typical Monday-morning fashion, I rolled out of bed nice and early to head to BodyCombat. Today’s class seemed to focus a lot more on upper body than lower body, which I really enjoyed, and I have a feeling that my shoulders will be sore tomorrow.
After class was over, I left the gym and made a pit stop at the grocery store. I used to do this a lot over the summer and seemed to somehow get out of the habit; but honestly, grocery shopping at 6:45am on a Monday morning is fantastic. The store is empty, the shelves are freshly stocked, and there’s no waiting in line. It’s perfect!
I got myself in and out of the store within a half hour (impressive for me) and then headed home. By this time I was pretty hungry, so I was ready to get back and make some breakfast. Well, wouldn’t ya know that traffic was backed up in every single direction that I could possibly take to get home. It was bumper to bumper for everrrr.
As it turns out, apparently there was a propane truck that had overturned, causing lane closures on a majorly busy highway, during morning rush hour. My usual 12 minute drive home took me 46 minutes today. Forty-six minutes…three times my normal commute…which is not easy to handle when you’re hungry and have to pee!
Luckily, me and my bladder made it back in time, and I whipped up a quick breakfast.
I stocked up on some more waffles this morning, so there was no question in my mind on what was going to be on the menu today.
I love me some wafflewiches.
I also picked up another new-to-me item this morning: Silk Pumpkin Spice soymilk.
I’ve had my eye out for this for a while now and today is the first day I actually found it. It’s super creamy, has a great pumpkin flavor, and is tasting mighty delicious in this morning’s mug of coffee. I’ll bet it’d be great just heated up and enjoyed on its own. Yum!
I have a few things to do today, including a trip to the DMV. Hopefully it’s nice and quick like last time. Happy Monday!
