I can fit in a quick stop at the grocery store on my way home from the gym. I did not do my weekly shopping during the weekend so I am out of a few staples – frozen berries, yogurt for Charlie’s lunches and oranges (another must have for his lunches). I buzzed through the store in a matter of 20 minutes crossing a few things off my list. I still need to go to Whole Foods since I can’t buy everything that I need at Stop & Shop. I feel so productive this morning. Now if I can get my house cleaned while D is at school then today will be an A+ day for me.
I was up and out the door by 5 AM. At the gym I did 20 minute intervals on the Stair Climber, 40 minutes on the Elliptical (I keep the tension high in order to keep my HR up and my arms working hard) and then I did weights.
After my quickie run to the store I ventured home to shower and make a yummy bowl of oatmeal.
Very Berry Oats were on the menu today. I bought a bag of frozen blueberries and strawberries this morning and was hankering to use them in my bowl of creamy delight.
A simple combo of 1/2 cup oatmeal, water and 1/2 a scoop of Jay Robb Vanilla Rice Protein was cooked on the stove. I added cinnamon for another level of flavor once the oats thickened up a bit. Before pouring the goods into my bowl, I added 1/2 a cup each of the blueberries & strawberries (still frozen). I like the berries to melt into my oats which also helps to cool it down so I do not scorch my mouth.
Topped off with PB2 and a tablespoon of almond butter, this bowl was ready to be savored. And savor I did. Every delicious, creamy and fluffy bite.
I am off to spend some time with my little doobie before it is time for me to drop him off at school. He asked if I would take him to Panera for a bagel – he is such a cutie pie. I hope you have a fabulous Monday.
