Okay, so I think that my lungs are FINALLY getting back to normal. Thank, freakin, goodness!
Even though I’ve only been on the prednisone and new inhaler for 2-1/2 days, I’m already feeling a world of difference. I’ve only had to use my rescue inhaler twice since then (I was using it 7-8 times per day before) and I can finally walk up a flight of stairs without feeling like I’m carrying a piano on my back. In fact, I’m feeling so much better that I’m hoping to get in a workout after work today. Nothing crazy, seeing as though I’m still working on getting over the rest of this cold and am sporting a cough that sounds like death. But overall, I’m finally feeling back to myself…and it’s a wonderful thing!
This morning’s breakfast was one that I suddenly found myself craving at 9pm last night, so I decided to put it together to have for today.
Thankfully, the craving was still there this morning.
Overnight oats…without a jar! I mixed up some of the usual staples last night (Coach’s oats, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, water, chia seeds, plain Chobani, cinnamon, nutmeg, half a mashed banana, raisins) and let it soak overnight. This morning, all I had to do was add half of a crumbled piece of pumpkin bread and half a packet of Justin’s maple almond butter.
Absolutely delicious (and filling) breakfast.
Before I prepped my breakfast last night, I also made sure to put together today’s lunch, which I was really looking forward to.
It’s so funny, because for the amount that I used to eat this type of meal (aka, almost every day) I’m surprised that I’m back to craving it again. I thought for sure that I was done with that phase, but apparently I was wrong.
Today included some baby carrots and celery with hummus, and a vanilla Chobani with blueberries, bananas, and some Special K Protein cereal.
Although I haven’t eaten it yet (lunch was surprisingly filling for now) I also have another mini sweet potato for later.
I promise…there is a sweet potato under all that salsa and plain Chobani somewhere.
So I’m really looking forward to after work today because I don’t have anything on the agenda. Yessssss.
I’m hoping to go home, get a workout in, break out the cozies, eat some dinner (would be totally happy with the grilled turkey bacon, tomato, and cheese sandwich I’ve been thinking about for the past day), then veg on the couch while catching up on our DVR. Our Wednesday night DVR schedule is sort of ridiculous, and since we didn’t watch any of them last night, we have quite a bit of catching up to do!
Favorite Pandora Stations?
So most days, I tend to have Pandora open on my computer and listen to it while I’m here at work. Typically, I cycle between 311 Radio, Bruno Mars Radio, and Gavin DeGraw Radio…but I’m starting to get kinda bored with all of them. I need some new ideas! Do any of you have any favorite stations on Pandora that you absolutely love?? If so, send ‘em my way!
