It’s my first day of work for the week so it feels like a Monday. I’m bummed that I have to be here instead of at home watching the festivities in Washington D.C. I wish I’d thought to make patriotic oatmeal like Caitlin!
I was really dreading coming back to work after the 3 day weekend, but it’s shaping up to be a good day. I felt rested when the alarm went off and got in a sweat-filled 30 minutes of cardio & core. To top it all off I’m having a good hair day (which is rare) and wearing pearls. Nothing bad can happen when you’re wearing pearls.
There is one bad thing about today. I forgot my camera…again! It’s okay because I have the same 3 things planned for another day this week so at least there won’t be repetitive pictures.
Back to the good things about today! I had my first bowl of oats from the batch I made yesterday! Today I topped them with blueberries and coconut. Soooo good and I’m still full. Now I see why everyone else eats them. I love that I could make them up ahead of time, portion them out and just throw them in my lunch bag. I think these will become an every morning thing for me.
There was a minor volcano-like incident in the work microwave, but I managed to recover most of the oats and get the mess cleaned up. Note to self: Do not leave oats in microwave unattended.
I’m going to brave the cold at lunch time for FREE beauty products. As a result of a lawsuit in California, several department stores will be giving out certain full-size products (one per person) today while supplies last. Click here for more information. I know this is completely unrelated to food, but just good to know.
