Here’s one way to get energized…

Hi there.
Today was such a dreary day, and especially on a Monday it was just so hard to stay awake at work!
I slept ’til 7:30 when I woke up on my own without an alarm. Wish I could have slept a bit later…
Woke up and had some oatmeal

^^Paired with a cup of back coffee^^
Super Creamy Oatmeal
Ingredients:
1/4 cup oatmeal (I use quaker)
1/4 cup oat bran (Hodgson Mills)
1 cup almond milk
1 Tbs Chia seeds
Directions:
Put all ingredients in pot and bring to boil. Stir while it bubbles for about 5 minutes. The longer the creamier.
Top with fresh fruit and nuts. Enjoy πŸ™‚
For lunch today I used a mish-mosh of fridge leftovers:
^^Salmon, eggplant, spinach, olive/pomegranate tapenade^^
Microwave that…

^^Top Flat Out wrap with goat cheese and above ingredients ^^
Roll and pop into toaster oven…
^^Gets nice and crispy!^^

^^Look at the size of this cucumber!^^

^^My lunch^^

^^MMMM!!!!^^
Around 2:30 I was totally feeling that “2:30 Feeling” (5 Hour Energy commercial anyone??)
Since I think I would not like a 5 Hour Energy drink, or any energy drink for that matter, I solved the problem like so:
^^2 advil (was a bit sore), a vitamin B (was told these perk you up), some dark chocolate, and some coffee^^
And a State Farm ad πŸ™‚
It worked- ’til 6 when I came home for dinner—

^^Lentils, WW cous cous, hard boiled egg, parmesan cheese^^
Can you say protein!?
Such a random day of eats- now off to Pilates! Can’t wait to stretch out…
