Goooood morning! Happy Friday!
Murphy and I just got back from a long, leisurely walk. I listened to the most recent episode of the Balanced Bites podcast while Murphy sniffed anything and everything in his path. It was a wonderful way to start the day.
Most mornings, I wake up, eat breakfast, and go straight into my office to get to work. Murphy typically goes back to bed and then pokes his little pug head into office around 9:00/9:30, which signals that he’s ready for his morning walk. Taking a walk before breakfast was a nice way to mix things up.
When I got back from our walk, I played some tunes and made breakfast. Murphy and I may have even had a little dance party. You probably already know this, but pugs love to dance.
This morning’s breakfast was two waffles with peanut butter, banana slices, raspberries, and maple syrup. Yum! I want to eat this breakfast every morning.
Speaking of breakfast, let’s rewind to yesterday’s eats!
I was all about the Frosted Mini Wheats yesterday morning. I had two bowls with banana slices and almond milk. Mmm!
I was glued to my computer all morning (lots of freelance projects are coming my way lately) and then broke for lunch around noon, which, once again, was an English muffin pizza. I seriously might eat this again for lunch today. It’s such an easy and delicious meal!
Murphy was really interested in my English muffin pizza, so I let him lick my plate after I finished eating. I think he scored a little bit of marinara sauce and few crumbs of English muffin, which I’m sure made him really happy. Pugs are easy to please.
Random afternoon snacks: spoonfuls of peanut butter, toasted coconut almonds, and pieces of dried papaya.
On my way home from CrossFit, I stopped by The Yogurt Bar to get some froyo for dinner. It was amazing.
I ate it while I cuddled with my favorite dog on the couch. (I’m not sure he can get any cuter.)
When Mal got home, I made him a frozen BBQ chicken pizza and snagged a piece. (He didn’t mind.) I figured I should probably eat some “real” dinner after eating froyo.
Question of the Day
How do you get your day off to a good start?
Other things I like to do to get my day off to a good start:
- Make the bed
- Get Marylou’s iced coffee
- Talk to my friend Jen on her drive to work
- Do 5-10 minutes of yoga while watching the news
- Take a hot shower and use the products I typically save for special occasions, like the fancy body scrubs
