Fill Her Up

For the sake of keeping things interesting (for you and for me!) I usually try to mix up the breakfasts a bit…but after yesterday’s hungerfest and this morning’s workout I just couldn’t face a light breakfast.  I ran straight for the oatmeal pot!

After coffee of course…

At least I created a new oatmeal concoction!

In the potUVAB, water, whole oats, chia seeds, 1/2 banana…stir the heck out of it so the chia doesn’t stick.  Stirred in peanut butter right at the end of cooking…

There’s nothing like a brand spanking new jar of natural PB.  Nom!

Topped with crushed peanut butter pretzel pieces because apparently oatmeal always requires a fun topping now.  :)

Morning workout consisted of pretty much just strength trainingWeek Three, day three of Intro to Iron.  I struggle with a couple of pieces of day three (mostly due to balance) so I was feeling pretty tired and skipped my extra cardio.  I’m OK with that.  I’ll be beating my abs up with a new workout from the Booty Camp DVD later today. 

Work is interesting right now.  And by interesting I mean hectic!  Let’s just say the whole Toyota recall thing is making a lot of work for our team…especially our journalists!

I came up for air just long enough to grab some grapes and to replace my coffee cup with my water bottle

Consider this blog my break.  Someone please bring me a salad.

You have the cutest collection of coffee mugs. :-)

Peanut butter oatmeal is an idea I could really get behind.
