I made it back home to North Carolina around 11 p.m. last night. I am feeling quite sleepy today, but I hope some energy kicks in soon because I have a class to teach at the gym at 9 a.m. I’ll be sure to fill you guys in on my chilly and wonderful trip to Minnesota soon, but for now, I just wanted to say a quick hello before the day begins!
Ryan and Sadie picked me up at the airport last night and Sadie went a little crazy when I hopped in the car! After almost a week away, I really, really missed those two so much.
They’re basically the best.
I think I said, “I love my bed” about 10 times before we fell asleep last night. There really is nothing like the comforting feeling of curling up in your own bed at night, right?!
Since the class I’m teaching at the gym today will double as my workout, there was no need to wake up early and I slept in until 7 a.m. and it felt fantastic. I woke up with a grumbling stomach only to stumble down into the kitchen to open a fridge and a pantry that left a lot to be desired. A trip to the grocery store is high my list for today!
After snacking on a few handfuls of Moose Munch (breakfast of champions right there), I decided to throw together a bowl of protein oatmeal that I made with almond milk, peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate protein powder.
Served with a juicy pear on the side!
The protein powder I used in the oats came from a packet of Tera’s Whey I purchased at Whole Foods a few weeks ago.
I think protein powder sample packets are the way to go when you want to try a new flavor but don’t want to drop down the big bucks and pay for a large tub you may or may not enjoy. (Verdict on dark chocolate Tera’s Whey: I liked it a lot!)
And yes, that is snow outside our window! It’s currently 14 degrees in Charlotte and though we aren’t supposed to get any snow today, I’m glad some of it decided to stick around so I could see it when I arrived back home.
Time for me to change and head out to the gym! I hope you guys have a wonderful Thursday. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog this morning!
