I am SO excited that it’s Friday! How about you?
After my short(er) day of work today, my plan is to come home and spend the evening doing a bit more studying. My weekend is so full of plans (a Saturday work shift, Saturday night Christmas party, Sunday adventure to MA with mom & Meg) that I’m assuming I probably won’t get much quality study time in. Hey, keeping balance involves more than just healthy eating, right?
Speaking of balance, I definitely put that into effect this morning when my alarm went off for my planned workout. 99% of the time, I’m never ready to get up right away, but I’m still motivated – it just takes a few minutes. Today, however, there was no motivation whatsoever. I craved more sleep…not more cardio. So I slept another peaceful hour instead, and it was beauteous.
So was breakfast, which was enjoyed alongside the Christmas tree.
I whipped up an egg, provolone cheese, and sandwich on a honey wheat English muffin. Surprisingly enough, I think this is the first one I’ve had all week?
You like my dollar store Christmas plate? Well let me tell you a fun fact about it…
We actually use this plate year-round, but I just never use it in pictures until it’s “seasonally appropriate.” So sneaky, I know.
While breakfast was cooking up, I also snagged a couple little handfuls of a new granola that was sent my way the other day. The super-sweet Nicole from Pure Bliss Eats generously sent me a little gift package with some of her homemade goods for me to try out. (Thanks, Nicole!)
The Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola is amazing! The granola is made with gluten free oats and only sweetened with honey, and the chocolate is dairy free, nut free, soy free & gluten free. Perfect for those with certain dietary restrictions.
She also sent me a package of Instant Boost Chocolate Balls, which are made with ingredients like brown rice protein powder, chia seeds, raw almonds, and dates.
I actually have these packed up to bring to work today. I think they’ll be a perfect afternoon snack!
Alrighty folks, gotta jet. Have a great day!

What fun facts do you have that others might not know?
