This morning my breakfast bowl contained:
- 1 c. Greek yogurt
- 1/2 c. cottage cheese
- 1 white nectarine, chopped
- Sweetener to taste
Protein-packed, nutrient-rich and completely uncomplicated.
Those of you crunched on time in the morning might enjoy this lil’ baby because it can be assembled in less than two minutes. Lightning fast!
I was craving a cold and creamy breakfast after my five-mile run with Sadie.
We flew through our run this morning!
I blame the cupcake (or two) that I had after dinner last night for the extra energy. 😉
When we got home, I rolled out my yoga mat for some stretching…
…Which didn’t last too long because I had some uninvited company show up.
Since a five mile run is clearly a walk in the park for Sadie, I let her out back to play around for a while and expend some more of her never-ending energy while I assembled my breakfast and lunch.
Okay, now it’s time for a serious discussion. 😉
For the past week, every time I’ve gone into our bathroom to take a shower in the morning, I’ve noticed that my towel has been removed from the towel rack and thrown over the shower curtain. I’ve been a little confused, but assumed Ryan used my towel to wash his face or something and hung it over the shower curtain to dry instead of placing it back in its proper place.
Before stepping into the shower, I would hang my towel back up on the towel rack and shower as usual.
Last night as Ryan and I were going to sleep he asked me if I’ve been enjoying the new location of my towel.
I started laughing and told him I had no idea why he’s been taking it off the towel rack putting it over the shower curtain. I told him I’ve hung it back up every day before showering, to which he said I was thwarting his plan!
Apparently Ryan has been moving my towel in an effort to prevent my inner “Swamp Beast” from coming out.
Here’s the thing: When I’m done showering, I step out of the shower and walk across the bathroom to get my towel off the towel rack.
Ryan feels that I trek too much water across the bathroom when I do this, causing our bathroom to look like a swamp (Hence his new nickname for me: Swamp Beast).
I don’t like drying off in the shower because I feel like it’s muggy and not as clean as the soft rugs in our bathroom. I like to jump right out when my shower is done, pump my fists in the air, proclaim “I’m clean!” and watch Sadie stare at her naked mama in confusion. (Totally kidding, but I do jump out of the shower right away.)
Ryan thinks I should fold my towel and set it on top of the toilet before I shower, since this would allow me to reach my towel from the shower. I prefer walking the two teeny steps to grab my towel off the towel rack because toilets (even when closed and covered with a toilet seat cover) are just plain gross.
We were laughing pretty hard before going to sleep last night about Ryan’s passive little plan to tame my inner Swamp Beast, which I clearly didn’t catch on to at all.
So, now I have a question for you:
Do you dry off in the shower, or do dry off once you get out of the shower?
I know I can’t be the only Swamp Beast out there…
