Maybe I’m boring, but I tend to eat the same few breakfasts over and over again. I like to try new things, but breakfast is one of those meals that I don’t like to mess with too much because a good breakfast sets the tone for my day. I want my breakfast to fill me up and satisfy me, so I can get on with the rest of my day. I hate it when I eat breakfast and just a couple of hours later, I’m hungry again. With that said, here are my go-to, delicious, satisfying, hold-me-over-for-hours breakfasts:
- Two-Ingredient Pancake with nut butter
- Sweet Breakfast Scramble
- French Toast Breakfast Scramble
- “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats
- Microwave English Muffin Egg Sandwich
Not surprisingly, I started my morning with a French Toast Breakfast Scramble in a jar (FTBSIAJ) with an extra scoop of Teddie in the mix.
I also drank a glass of iced Dandy Blend with almond milk and a splash of sugar cookie coffee creamer. ‘Tis the season!
After breakfast, I headed to CrossFit. Today’s workout was all about Double Unders.
After warming up, we spent about 15 minutes practicing them, and I managed to beat my previous Double Under PR with 37 unbroken! Woohoo! I’ve been stuck at 24 for awhile now, so it was nice to finally beat it!
The WOD as prescribed was 7 rounds for time of a 10 calorie row, 20 Hollow Rocks, and 30 Double Unders unbroken.
I’m getting better at Double Unders, but there was no way I could do 30 unbroken 7 different times. Well, maybe I could, but it would take me forever, so I did the Level 2 option, which was 20 Double Unders (not unbroken).
I did a couple of rounds of 20 Double Unders unbroken (I always feel so cool when I don’t mess up and can just throw down my rope) and finished the WOD in 11:33.
Our class was a bunch of WOD ninjas and finished the workout much faster than expected, so we ran one mile outside as a finisher.
After CrossFit, I drove to Michaels for some arts and crafts fun. (I’m so not crafty, but I try!)
Hooray for “jingle deals!”
I’ve been kind of obsessed with having a nice, decked-out mantel over our fireplace this year, so I bought all sorts of goodies at Michaels. I had a tough time envisioning what it would look like, but, hopefully, it comes together. I’ll snap some pics once I getting it looking pretty!
After I got home from Michaels, I reheated some leftover Gingery Beef and Broccoli for lunch.
What a lovely piece of broccoli! Drop Dead Fred anyone?
Once I finished eating, I poured myself a glass of iced Dandy Blend and added some Rice Nog to it. It was on sale at the grocery store and I had a coupon for it, so I bought a carton to try. My review: It’s not good. It’s super watery and doesn’t really taste like eggnog. Don’t waste your money.
A little while later, I started to get hungry again, and I knew there was no way I could make it until dinner, so I sliced up a banana and added some sunflower butter and shredded coconut as a snack.
