Hey everyone! Glad Monday’s over? Me too. Yesterday was pretty rough and I think I took about 9 minutes to eat my lunch before getting back to work. Crazy day! I was grumpy about missing my workout and work has been hectic. I was ready to just write the day off as a wash when my friend Danielle texted to invite me over for dinner and Bachelorette. I said no at first, then I heard some magic words: steak and wine. Ok, sign me up!
I’m so glad I went over because it definitely turned my day around. She went all out and prepared a great dinner!
Such a great way to turn my Monday around!
Workout & Breakfast
Today I was itching to get to the gym since I missed it yesterday. I got up at 4:30 and got there right at opening time. After 35 minutes on the adaptive motion trainer, I spent some time working on my abs in the free area. I’m still pretty obsessed with the Jock Jams station on Pandora and got super excited when Everybody Dance Now came on. I was that crazy girl mouthing the words to the song and attempting to dance and work out at the same time. Seriously, I try to dance to everything. Tell me I’m not the only one that does that!
When I got home breakfast was super easy since I got it together last night- overnight oats! I just recently discovered this little gem of a breakfast and love how handy it is during the work week.
I used the same basic ingredients as last time with a few additions.
- 1/2 – 2/3 cup oats
- 1/2 almond milk
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 container Greek yogurt
- 1/2 banana
- chopped walnuts
- 1 drizzle of sugar-free maple syrup
The maple syrup was a nice touch and the walnuts added the crunch I needed. Another breakfast success!
Now I’m off to work for another super busy day. Luckily, I had the good sense to get my coffee pot set before I left yesterday so I’ll be ready to go when I walk in the door. Have a great Tuesday!
What are your favorite overnight oats toppings?
