Guns and Buns

Ahhhhh. Do you hear that? It’s the sound of Friday, folks. It’s the sound of me giving a sigh of relief after seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Whew, talk about a week!

This morning I opted to sleep in, instead of getting up for an early workout. I had pretty much already been planning on taking today as a rest day anyway, but my body is definitely telling me it needs it right now. I had some pretty killer workouts this week (WOOT!), so I think it’s ‘bout time to give the guns and buns a day off.


Does this not look sinful or what?


Since I’m still fully immersed in my peanut butter addiction, there was no way I was leaving that out this morning. Today’s addiction was fueled with a big ‘ol serving of PB2, which was drizzled all over a delicious batch of pumpkin oats.


I also had to sprinkle a little Love Grown Foods granola in there too because, well, oatmeal really isn’t the same without it. I just made sure to go easy on my serving.

Coffee was delish, as always.


Now that I’m filled up with all sorts of peanut buttery, pumpkiny goodness, I think I’m ready to tackle the day!


As for the rest of today’s eats I have packed up, they honestly don’t look all that much different yesterday…


Snacks include two clementines, roasted almonds, and another cup of plain Chobani with strawberries and cinnamon. Lunch is some more leftover Crockpot Chicken & Veggie Stew, along with a whole wheat mini bagel.

I don’t need to worry about dinner since it’s my early day at the salon…which is also my last day! It’ll be bittersweet for sure, but I know it’s time. It’s time to move forward and go on to bigger and better things. Smile

What bigger and better things do you have in your sights?

    Yum! Your oats remind me of the holidays….:) Congrats on the new changes in your life! I have worked at my job for going on 11 years, but it’s always in the back of my head to do something new. I would love to own my own health food bakery/coffee shop.

    Right now I am concentrating on my Seminary class and see where that takes me. :)

    Have a great day!

    It’s always bittersweet when you are moving on from a place where you enjoyed working.
    My “bigger and better” things will come in the fall as I study kinesiology at SFSU. Then after two years, it will get even BIGGER and BETTER.

    The last day of a job is always bittersweet. You feel like you’re going to cry but yet you can’t wait to get out and start your new journey. I know the feeling (a few weeks ago…eeek!) My bigger and better things look similar to yours, only splitting the CPT time with health coaching. I can’t wait to finish studying and get in it.

    What plugin is the new social media thing on the left side of your blog?

    Congratulations on your ventures. A couple big things that I want to accomplish are to graduate high school and pick a good career choice (torn between journalism and being a police detective/FBI agent- TV shows make those two jobs look awesome).
