Happy hump day, bloggies! I, for one, am so happy it’s Wednesday. Can you believe November is almost over? I guess having a week of vacation makes the time fly – we should do that once a month, yes? Anyway, here are my eats from yesterday, per usual. Thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting!
Next time you see the WIAW button on here, it’ll be December. I’ve heard it’s a cool button, too 🙂
After a rough morning, (more on that tomorrow) I was more than ready for my new Trader Joe’s pumpkin pecan oatmeal yesterday morning. I completed 7 miles of speed work at the gym (800s and 400s) and was starving by the time I got home. I rushed through my shower/getting ready sequence and made breakfast.
I added a couple egg whites to the mix as well as 1/3 cup water and 1/3 unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I topped my oats with peanut butter and some shredded coconut – that was a cool combination. I also watched the Today show while eating, just because I love it.
After class, I was in a great mood because I did well on my last public speaking speech. Ask anyone, and they wouldn’t believe that I’m excelling in a public speaking course…but I am 🙂 I headed to Starbucks to get some work done.
I had a grande Pike Place with pumpkin sauce. I was THIS close to trying a holiday syrup, but I thought I’d be consistent with breakfast and get pumpkin. I’m weird like that. I also had a banana that, surprisingly, made it from home, to class, and to Starbucks unscathed. Score.
I also packed this Larabar to eat while working. I’m a fan of this flavor…I’m convinced you can’t really go wrong with any of the flavors.When I got home, I was starving for something quick, and warm. I followed in Katie’s and Molly’s footsteps and had a sweet potato with fried eggs, siracha, and avocado. This was SO good.
Siracha makes my nose runny, but I like it anyway. Speaking of runny, is anyone else incredibly amused when you break the yoke of a fried egg? It’s probably just me…but I got a cool picture.
I packed my favorite trail mix to snack on while in my afternoon class. This stuff is good.
I added some butterscotch chips in for good measure and extra sweetness!
Since it was such a dreary, rainy day yesterday, when I got back from class, nothing sounded better than cuddling up in bed with some coffee and my new book. It was so relaxing – and my new sugar cookie-flavored coffee creamer was delicious! It’s a slow transition to all things Christmas.
In keeping with my (unplanned) orange theme for the day, I made my favorite pumpkin-hummus pizza on Naan bread. This meal has become a lunch and dinner staple. Especially when I have to use the entire can of pumpkin by myself.
Not like that’s a bad thing. Seriously. Nighttime snacks included Silk Dark Chocolate almond milk, (another new favorite) a couple handfuls of trail mix, and left over figs I had from home. I would have taken pictures, but I was too busy catching up on my TV shows in bed. Plus, I’m trying this new thing where I’m not completely connected to the computer all day.
Well, that’s all I have for today. I hope your week is going well!
Do you have a morning routine?
Any new favorite snacks for me to try?
