Good morning friends. I hope you are off to a great start. I actually went to the gym this morning for a workout – I was really in the mood for a good weight training session. I did just that but first I started with a bit of cardio on the Stairmaster and the Arc Trainer. It was a good workout and I left with that pumped feeling in my arms.
So I have been admiring the lovely French Press cups of java as I make my blog reading rounds. I love coffee – the flavor unadorned is the way to go for me. I have had some trouble in the past with getting the jitters from drinking too much caffeine. Therefore, I gave up on coffee and have been sticking to tea. I usually drink a cup in the morning and then maybe a cup in the afternoon. Most of the time I switch to decaf midday so that I do not have difficulty falling asleep at night. It all depends on the day and how I feel. I can drink a caffeinated cup in the afternoon if I am feeling a bit sluggish and have no problems going to bed. Well I got a French Press coffee maker the other day and let me tell you – it’s the way to go if you are a coffee lover. The flavor is so smooth with very little aftertaste.
I tried it with a little skim milk but I do prefer it black (that is how I had it this morning – the photo is from yesterday). I really like that I can make as little or as much as I want without having to dirty an entire coffee maker. I am the only one drinking coffee so all I need to make is enough for one mug. I guess I am back to the coffee habit again. I feel so sophisticated making it in the French Press.
This morning I cracked open another Dessert Hummus – Pumpkin Pie. I added a dollop to the top of my Blueberry Oats along with a PB2 drizzle. I actually really adore the flavor of pumpkin & peanut butter.
Yeah, this stuff is AMAZING!!! Have you ordered any yet? Well you really should – it is delicious. I really wish that it would get to some stores in my area. I guess Chuck is working on that but it does take some time.
I have stuff to take care of around my house and then I need to make sure that I have everything ready for D’s first day of preschool – he starts tomorrow. He so excited. The orientation went really well yesterday. I am so happy that we decided to send him. He was Mr. Social with the other 9 kids in his class. I do not foresee him having any problems being without Mommy for a few hours each week.
I hope you have a great Thursday. The weekend is in sight. Any big plans? We are supposed to go to Canobie Lake with my sis and her family – should be a blast.
