I hope your Saturday is off to a good start! My day started bright and early at 6:00 am so that I could get to work at 7:00 for a 13 hour shift! The pool is having a swim meet today so we are all here extra early.
Since I knew today would be long, I made a filling breakfast to help power me through the first few hours of my shift. The bowl had oat bran, made with water and cooked for a minute in the microwave. It literally turns to sticky paste, but with extra almond milk it’s really good. I topped it with blueberries, strawberry and apricot. After the photos, I added a scoop of peanut butter and strawberry jam for sweetness. Also a HUGE mug of espresso and almond milk to keep me going.
Since I’ll be here for the majority of the day, I also brought an arsenal of food. I’m usually exceptionally hungry during my seven hour shifts, so I came prepared.
Snacks and Mini MealsCherry Chobani Greek yogurt with honey nut Cheerios and a few pumpernickel pretzels. Weird combination, but it works!Greek salad in a cup: lettuce, tomato, cucumber, sheep’s milk feta cheese, olives and bulgur wheat salad. Thank you, mom 😉A flat-out wrap with a The Laughing Cow cheese wedge, sliced tomato, fresh basil, salt & pepper.
I’m watching a lot of working out happening, but I won’t be doing my own until later. I’m planning a 45 minute swim and then biking 4 miles home. Great workouts to do in this awesome weather!Enjoy your weekend 🙂
P.s between my breaks and being on stand, this post has officially taken me nine hours to write. Is that a record?
