It happened again

Monday comes every week, but somehow it always ends up surprising me! Does this happen to you?

daffodil says hi!

Gym this morning was my all-about-the-steps favorite workout :-). And my body seems to have finally picked up on the fact that I increased both my weights and the cardio level! Stats for arms on an aerobics step + 30 minutes StairMaster + jog to gym and back + stretching and abs: 1 hour and 14 minutes, 476 calories, average heart rate 132, max 171.

Breakfast was custard oatmeal:

I made two portions of this last night because I needed to use some up some dying roommate fruits (strawberries and cantaloupe) and some open pieces of my own fruit (banana and pear). For extra zip, I added nutmeg, cardamom, vanilla extract, and almond extract. To make the two servings, I used 1 egg, 1/4 cup soymilk, 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats, and 1/2 cup steel-cut oats. I re-heated half of what I made in the oven this morning while I got ready:

Today’s toppings included the last tsp peanut butter. There’s little I love more than scraping a pb jar clean!

Along with a crumbled graham stick, unsweetened shredded coconut, cardamom, and 1/2 cup yogurt:

Come back this afternoon for another guest post from The Professional Vegan, and I’ll return after class tonight with the rest of today’s food!

    Monday is always a sad surprise. I feel like this weekend was unusually quick. I don’t know where it went at all.
    Yummy breakfast!
    I can’t believe how energetic and how much work out you get in while I am in the process of rolling out of bed!

    Monday ALWAYS surprises me. Actually, over the weekend I kept waking up each morning thinking, “what class do I have today?” Haha I was a little out of it. Custard oats sounds faaab.
