Early Morning Accomplishment

So I was up at the crack of dawn today…driving FH to work and taking my tired bum to the gym.  Even after a 5km walk yesterday I felt like a total slacker for not getting to the gym to work off all those Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies I ate.  (FYI: they are all gone, and FH isn’t to blame!)  But I got to the gym and it wasn’t open!  A couple of trainers and the cleaning lady were standing outside…apparently someone forgot to show up for work today! 

Bummer.

I came home figuring on getting some work done then heading back, but had a look around my pigsty of an office (I’m ridiculously organized everywhere else…why not my office?!) and started cleaning.  Looks fab now, but so much for the gym!  I’ll be heading there after work instead.

7 pairs of shoes for charity, plus my old leather jacket (goodbye size 14!).

In between working and puttering I had a quick breakfast.  Started with Candy Cane Lane tea (who says minty goodness is only for Christmas!?), then served up a dish of fruit salad with some new yogurt, topped with almonds and walnuts.  Stonyfield Farms organic vanilla yogurt.

In the fruit salad: blackberries, raspberries, apricot, peach & nectarine

By the time I’d finished carting junk out of my office to where it all belongs, and squeezed in a reasonable amount of work, I was hungry again.  I had leftover chicken tenders from last night’s pizza, so I chopped them up and made chicken salad.  Deeeeeeelish.

In the mix: seasoned chicken, green onions, chopped pickles, grainy dijon, light mayo.

Served on a piece of whole wheat bread with mixed “sassy” greens and matchstick carrots.  A few strawberry tomatoes alongside…and a dish of grapes and strawberries.

Just a while ago I played with my food…organic animal crackers for a snack.  Rawr.  Now off to finish work for the day so I can get to the gym at a reasonable time.

This post just took over two hours to put together…so.many.interruptions.
