A relaxing morning and my new favorite snack

Most mornings I wake up at 4:45 and rush to get ready, pump, and get myself and all of my crap luggage into the car and make it to yoga for a 6 am class…and it takes me about a half hour to get there. I’m stressing out just writing about it!

I had planned on doing my usual routine this morning, but I decided to hit snooze and I got up when AB woke up around 6:30. I fed her and we snuggled for a little while and it was the perfect way to spend a dreary morning.

I finally left the house and made a quick stop to make my morning even better.

During lunch, I enjoyed a sweaty but easy paced 6 miles. It felt really good to just run and not worry about time or pace :-).

The only thing that gets me through the afternoon at work is snack time. I really liked today’s snack.

Bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and almond butter. Yum! I’m really sorry it looks gross in the picture…it was the opposite of gross.

Since I am always thinking about food, I cannot wait to get home for ice cream cake a healthy dinner!
