Do It, Do It - Okay!

Morning! Guess what song I heard on the radio this morning? That's right, Neon Moon. You know this chick started twanging! Big Boy even said, "This is my song." Darling. They were both great this morning. Is it because Monster Jam is on the horizon? Possibly. Or is it because they know their mama is frazzled and are treading very carefully? Likely! I'm just kidding. Though I am frazzled, I prefer to be busy and as much as I belly ache, I love it!

So last night, The Lover decided to surprise us with a special dessert.

Sorry about the poor pic quality. It's a brownie fudge sundae that totally rocked the buds! Baby Boy and I shared the single while The Lover and Big Boy split a double.

I prepared my breakfast last night: overnight oats. Love this stuff!

My awesome oats contained:
  • 1/2 cup dry oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup plain almond milk
  • 1/4 coconut juice
  • 1.5 teaspoons brown sugar
  • generous sprinkle of cinnamon
Combine all ingredients, store in fridge overnight. This morning, I added 2 teaspoons shredded coconut, 1 small diced apple and diced almonds. Try not to moan with delight with every bite! I think I have finally found the right moisture combo that I prefer. Usually, the oats tend to be too dry for my tastes but with the almond milk and coconut juice, perfection!

I mentioned last night that my knee was popping like crazy yesterday. I was worried how it would be this morning but it seems fine. I'm not sure I'll get the full 10 miles of speedwork in today but I'm going for at least 5. It's still balls to the wall crazy at work so more than likely, 10 ain't gonna happen.

When I stayed home, I relied on The Lover and Nana to watch the boys while I did my thang.  Now that I'm working again, I do it during the work day. For you working peeps, how and when do you fit work outs in? For you full time mamas, how and when do you fit work outs in?

  1. I run at lunch time. I am possibly joining the gym soon and I'll do that at lunch time also. :)
