Well, it’s back to pitch-black mornings, thanks to daylight savings! I was so excited last week that the sunlight had finally started to peek through at 6:30 am when I was leaving the gym, but those days are over. No sun until 7:15 now! Despite the darkness, I had a great arms and steps workout this morning. Stats: 1 hour and 6 minutes, 459 calories, 136 average heart rate, 168 max.
Breakfast was a cup of my latest oatmeal concoction: Almond-Infused Rosemary-Lemonade crockpot oats!
Yum, they tasted just like summer!
With the oats, I had 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1 tbsp unsweetened coconut, 1 tbsp vanilla-almond granola, and this gorgeous tsp of homemade almond butter:
And two crumbled basil-spice meringue kisses:
My beverage of the morning was “chocolate tea“:
The tea included 1 black tea bag, 1 sugar cookie sleigh ride tea bag, 1 scant tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, a splash of unsweetened soymilk, liberal cinnamon, and a hefty sprinkle of cayenne. Nothing like spicy and bitter chocolate to zap some light into the day!
Did daylight savings time affect your morning?
