Pray a Latte

Isn’t this the cutest!?!  Now I just need a latte to go in there and I’ll be a happy camper.

This morning’s breakfast was an epic fail.

Blueberries and almond butter?  Ew.  My two favorite things don’t mesh well.  Thankfully I thought ahead last night and prepped some overnight oats so I didn’t have to labor over what I was going to eat this morning.

Refreshing Overnight Cereoats
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almond milk + 1/2 cup water
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp flaxseed meal
Microwave 1:30, let cool, and stick it in the fridge overnight.
If you can wait until morning to eat them, add:
1 heaping tsp cinnamon
1 tsp agave (or other sweetener)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup fruit of choice
2 Tbsp nut butter
The best part = add some milk so you trick your body and mind into thinking you’re eating cereal, except this time you don’t have to go back for fourths… 

Bad news: I think I’ve hit a plateau in exercise.  I had no desire to go to the gym, like most days have been lately.  I went anyways and completed a great workout, but I need something to spice up my daily sweat time!  Any ideas??!!

this is exactly what I looked like, I know it

I then did the same thing on the elliptical, but wasn’t gasping for air.

Here’s some links on the importance of working out your back.  Besides the fact that you can wear a backless dress and feel HAWT.

I will finally be doing some cooking tonight for din din since I’m off work.  Yay!
