It’s Saturday and that means that I don’t have to think about any commitments besides homework. What a relief! I cranked out one of my presentation yesterday afternoon and have another one half way done. Now I just have to write a paper and we’ll be good to go. That just screams “FUN!” doesn’t it?
I can’t complain for too long, though, because I’ve decided to take a break and share my breakfast with you. This morning I woke up around 9:00 and headed to the gym with my roommate. I did 40 minutes on the elliptical before coming back and doing the Legs + Back workout from P90X. I actually just did the “legs” portion which made the workout go by a lot faster. I’m enjoying the fact that now that I know what to expect on the DVDs, I’m able to cater them to what I want to do and I think it’s much more time-effective that way. Every minute and second counts these days!!
After the sweat session, I needed a big breakfast because working out for such a long period of time left me completely exhausted of any energy. In fact, you could say that I had a “towering” hunger. What’s a girl to do?
Answer: Make a waffle tower! Shout out to Miss Sarah, as always, for this one. I combined some new and old flavors and it turned out sensational. Here’s what went in:
- 2 toasted Kashi GO LEAN! Blueberry frozen waffles
- 1 tbsp. crunchy Barney Butter
- 1/4 cup Fage
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 2 tsp. maple syrup
The waffles are stacked one on top of each other, so I split the Barney Butter and Fage up on each layer of waffle, then topped the whole concoction with the blueberries and maple syrup. My mouth is still watering from how delicious this breakfast tasted!
I love making fun breakfasts like this and knowing that they are still completely nutritious. It shows that healthy eating never has to mean sacrificing good taste! Plus, then we have wonders like Coffee Cocoa to wash everything down.
Speaking of ladies who rock the name Sarah, I also have to give a shout out to a woman with a lot of love in her tummy, Sarah of LovIN My Tummy, who tried my Coffee Cocoa here and here. She rocksssss (with 5 s’s, obviously) and her girls are adorable!
I am off to kick some major homework arse. Tonight, Bobby and I are getting in the job celebration we didn’t have last weekend because he was sick. By the way, turns out he had pink eye 😯 YIKES. I am really hoping that I avoid that one!! I will let you all know how McCormick & Schmick’s goes!
P.S. I am making Bobby read Twilight. Call me a demanding girlfriend if you want, but I needed someone else to jump on the bandwagon and thought it’d be fun to see what a guy thinks. I didn’t know if he would like it and told him that if he truly wasn’t interested, he could give the book back to me. Well it turns out he read well over 100 pages last night…muahaha!
