It’s been one of those mornings.
I knew it was off to a rocky start when I woke up literally two minutes before my alarm, felt like I was awake for the day but would just lie there for two minutes, and then fell back asleep only to wake up and feel as though I’d been hit by a truck.
How is that even possible?
Also, I must have had a dream that I was in a fight with someone, because I spent a good deal of the morning having the unsettled feeling like someone was mad at me. I hate that.
Throughout my workout this morning, I also battled a headache. Why? Because I had a glass of red wine last night.
I know red wine gives me headaches. Why did I have a glass anyway? I mean, really.
It’s okay, though, because said wine was paired with a dinner that was made for me. When I came home last night, I found that Mark had made us a frittata.
Best. Roommate. Ever. Even though he finishes the eggs sometimes.
There is honestly nothing better than coming home from a day of work to find a healthy and delicious dinner already made. Seriously, that is my idea of a perfect night.
What can I say? I’m easy.
The frittata was, as usual with Mark, an original recipe. All I know is that it had goat gouda, mushrooms, green beans, and spinach. And that I want more.
I served myself a piece…
…and then went back for more. It was so good.
Anyway, back to my morning.
So, I finished my workout (boot camp + the elliptical, by the way) and went home with visions of baked oatmeal in my head. Yearning for cinnamon and maple, I rushed through my foam rolling and hurried to get ready for work.
I also had three errands to run before work, so I really had to get moving.
Unfortunately, I managed to spend about 20 minutes deciding what to wear because I was having one of those mornings where nothing felt right.
I am such a girl.
Anyway, suffice it to say that I ran out of time for baked oatmeal. It’s okay, though, Chobani and Vitatop saved the day!
Into the mix went:
- Vanilla 0% Chobani
- Deep Chocolate Vitatop
- 1/3 banana, sliced
- coconut (maybe 1 tbs?)
- 1 tsp White Chocolate Dreams PB
It was no cinnamon and maple-infused baked oatmeal, but it did its job. I was still a happy camper.
And then I was off! A little later than I wanted, sure, but I was sure I could manage to complete all three errands if I was efficient.
Halfway through errand #1, I realized I’d forgotten my phone at home.
I kind-of-sort-of-really can’t live without my phone.
It’s a problem.
So, I rushed back home, (obviously) didn’t manage to complete my other two errands, and then had to rush to work, to which I was late. Being late always throws me. I’m a show-up-early kind of girl.
I’ve been a little frazzled since arriving at work, but I’m slowly settling in.
What I’m really sad about is that one of my missed errands was to pick up some Kombucha (an expensive little habit I’ve formed), and now I don’t have one for today. Boo.
Last (work)week, I managed to go through almost one a day…
I loved them all, but the Gingerberry (the picture with the weird coloring) was my favorite.
I think I have a problem.
How have your mornings been? Anybody have a morning like mine?
