After 30 years of standing at the sidelines of my own life, I am ready to "Pick Me!" first. Follow me on my journey of finding health and happiness in my every day...

Need to Catch Up?
Tag Archives: coffee
Life has been busy… REALLY busy since school started.
Stinky, my youngest has always been involved in a lot of activities, Bubba, not so much. This year, he has finally come out of his shell. It’s great!
It however adds more mileage to my odometer that I am now running with 2 kids instead of one. 😉
So this weekend when I had 5:30am wake up calls, packing lunches and driving here or there in the snow, it really didn’t feel like the weekend!
However knowing Bubba fulfilled a big dream of his to start him on his way of refereeing the big leagues…
It’s the little things that make it all worth it! So when I am sleep deprived, or wishing a cleaning fairy had showed up while I was out running kids this weekend…
All the rest can wait…
Aquafit last night was cancelled due to weather Which means I better get my butt in gear at home, and bring a DVD with me when we go to the wedding as I am feeling BLAH! After the cancelled aquafit disappointment and procrastinating about packing, I stayed up WAY too late! I needed COFFEE this morning!!
Protein Oats were my eats of choice this morning… I honestly didn’t know what to have. I’m not that hungry, and I didn’t want to wake up my family with the hum of the vitamix…
In the bowl:
- Quaker 100% Whole Grain Oats packet
- 1 scoop Chocolate Protein powder
- 1 t Chia Seeds
- Boiled Water
I put it all in a bowl, and microwaved it for an additional 30 seconds so it had the wonderful souffle like texture. Topped it with some Coco-Loco, and a tiny bit of almond butter and dove right in…. I guess I was hungrier than I thought?
I’m off to the hairdresser today… hopefully for just a trim, and colour. I had a not so great experience there this spring when my Hairdresser was off work for a couple of months, and I used her replacement. I have been putting off an appointment as long as I can, as leopard print dye job is not what I want to be sporting at my cousin’s wedding next week… will keep you updated 😉
