It is 9:30 am, and I am still sitting in bed. Sitting, but still in bed. It never ceases to amaze me how I can spend hours on my computer without actually doing anything. And I have lots to do today. So I need to get productive.
I did not do my early morning workout today because I am pretty sore from the last few days. (I have worked out 3 mornings in a row!!) My obliques are so sore from the “6 pack abs” video that I did yesterday from Exercise TV on demand (the video that I thought was cheesy and dumb, oops). I’m not usually sore in my obliques though, so I am enjoying the feeling!! I did get up and walk the dogs this morning…trying to get them some more exercise too!
I think that they have the right idea now though…
They love when Mom is being lazy :).
I started off the morning with a cup of coffee in my “let it snow” mug (I really do not like cold weather or snow, by the way).
Which I enjoyed while I updated my calendar and to-do list. Then I decided to get creative with my oats this morning. I started with this:
And I ended up with all of this:
And came up with my delicious breakfast:
- 1/3 cup of oats
- 1/3 cup of sweetened vanilla almond milk
- half of a banana, mashed up
- a sprinkle of bare naked fit vanilla granola
- a scoop of white chocolate wonderful peanut butter
I cleaned my bowl 🙂
I have spent so time over the last few years counting calories that it really is a habit. I made a concious effort this morning to use all of the ingredients in moderation because I want to be less obsessive over calories. I am still aware of the calories, but I am trying hard to trust my body to tell me when I’ve had enough (while remembering appropriate serving sizes).
Ok, well its time to get productive… I need to:
- Go to the UPS Store
- Write a paper
- Read several articles
- Buy some new makeup (which I have been putting off because it is so expensive! But the drugstore stuff just isn’t cutting it anymore.)
- Order a cake for Saturday
- Pick up a prescription
- Pick up the house
- Do my Stats homework
- And get something for my cousin for his birthday (which is today…and I have to pick him up from school at 2:30!)
- Try to get a workout in!
So I better get moving! Hope you all have a great day 😀
Do you all count calories? How do you moderate portion sizes?
