Lazy Girl Oats
Finally humpday! Hope everyone is starting off the morning right. Yesterday was an early day for me. First day of mini term classes. I’m taking Human Growth & Development at 6am. Yes, at 6am. That means I have to wake up at 5 and drive to class while it’s pitch dark outside. Not fun at all. As soon as I came home at 7:30 I went right back to sleep and woke up at a more decent time, 9am 🙂
At this point I was really hungry and couldn’t wait for stove top oats. Yes I’m getting lazy and using the microwave, oh well. Either way, I have no complaints about these oats.
Basic serving of oats, 1 cup of water, 1/2 banana, vanilla extract, cinnamon, flax, chopped walnuts, Kashi, and dark chocolate peanut butter. Just what I needed after what seemed like a dragging long class.
My stomach has been feeling just ok these last few days. Cutting out sorbitol has helped out a little but not so much. Yesterday I ate out because I was starving and couldn’t wait to get home. Pretty bad mistake, I was bloated all night. When I eat foods that I make myself my stomach doesn’t take that bad of a beating.
Today was a weight training day and I got up early since I have things to do in the afternoon.
I started off with deadlifts. 145 lbs which were incredibly tiresome. I did 5 reps and I felt my body aching all around. I love compound exercises as opposed to isolated just because you really do feel all the muscles in your body working at the same time.
After my deadlifts I followed up with arnold presses, 20 lb dumbbells in each hand. I was shaking and glad I finished my 5 reps. Cable crunches were next, followed by leg lifts. Great for the abs 🙂
Yet again I could not wait to make breakfast. Another lazy girl oatmeal.
1/2 cup of oats, 1 cup water, vanilla extract, cinnamon, chopped walnuts, flax, 1/2 banana, teddy grahams, chocolate chips, and an almond butter finish. Who says microwave oats aren’t equally delicious?
Well I’m off to shadow a Physician Assistant friend of mine who works at an Urgent Care Center. I’m pretty excited to see what he does and I’m all decked out in my scrubs 😀
This week has gone by in the blink of an eye. I can’t believe tomorrow is my birthday already 😮 Oh my 22, time flies!
