Anyone catch the Styx reference? 🙂
I didn’t really have too much time on my hands today, but I have to say that my time management skills are really improving!
To make it to a fitness class today as part of my challenge, I had another early morning to make it to cycling at 5:45. Remember how I talked about how I don’t like to wash my hair if I can help it? There is just no way I can get away with not washing my hair after cycling. I am a sweaty beast! For that reason, I usually avoid cycling before I have to be somewhere, because it takes me forever to blow dry and straighten my hair. Coupled with the fact that my sister is also getting ready at the same time as I do, and that we share a bathroom and a blow dryer / hair straightener… do you see why I don’t wash my hair in the morning if I can help it?
I came home pouring sweat, and had resigned myself to going to class with wet hair. Miracle of miracles, my sister had already done her hair by the time I got out of the shower, and I had time to do my hair before we left! I realize this sounds really trivial to most people, but you have no idea what my hair looks like when it’s not straightened. You never will, either 🙂 Take my word for it… it is positively beastly.
Not only did I have time to do my hair, I made myself an epic bowl of oatmeal.
I made myself egg white oatmeal a la Allie, and used almond milk instead of water. I couldn’t tell the difference, but egg whites in oatmeal = genius. I topped it with a Vitatop and honey nut cream cheese. I was feeling pretty smug as I sat down to enjoy it 🙂
Unfortunately, it was six hours before I ate lunch, and I was ready to eat
someone anything when I walked in the door after class!
The salad so nice, she made it thrice! Same as yesterday. I may be boring, but it is amazing.
I was daydreaming about cinnamon Cheerios during class (what’s new?) They taste so much like graham crackers, I was envisioning making a graham cracker like crust out of them and making a filling to go inside, like a mini cheesecake.
I blended some Cheerios with applesauce to get it moist, but my food processor is really weak, and it wasn’t working out. I just smooshed the mixture onto the bottom of a bowl and topped it with tofu mousse and called it done. Not quite what I had in mind, but it was still good!
I was still hungry an hour later, so I had an apple with PB flour.
After work, I made myself a hummus and egg sandwich, yogurt, and some clementines. I ate them in about 30 seconds. I was starving!
Off to bed I go. I am wiped!
How do you handle getting ready in the mornings when you’re crunched for time? Let’s just say I would rather have sweaty hair than skip a good breakfast… 🙂
