What I Ate Wednesday already?!
I still can’t believe it! Feels like just last week, I was getting “pumped up” for the latest WIAW theme Jenn threw our way! Speaking of, be sure to pop on over to Peas & Crayons and show our beautiful host some love in the form of a comment…without her, Wednesdays just wouldn’t be the same!
So let’s get this party started, shall we?
Once I made it home after my night shift, I whipped up something quick for “breakfast.” My level of consciousness had been slowly declining from the moment I swiped my badge at the time clock so there was no time to waste!
A quicker variation of my protein wheat cake pizza…just crumble it up, throw it in a bowl and grab a spoon!
I used carob instead of chocolate this time just in case my body decided it wanted to get sensitive to the effects of caffeine.
Minutes later, I crawled into my bed, donned my new lavender-scented sleep mask, and pulled the covers up to my chin…
Ahhh, sleep at last!
When I woke up about five hours later, I really wanted to roll over and go back to sleep, but, the tummy rumblings would not be ignored so I shuffled to the kitchen and realized all I wanted was a big bowl of creamy oats!
Egg White Oats topped with blueberries, coconut, chia seeds, and a drizzle of peanut flour sauce (PB2 mixed with a little water).
Blueberries + peanut butter = HEAVEN!
After I finished my “lunch”, I figured I’d wait an hour or two to let my food digest, but I knew I had big plans for later…plans for a nice sweaty workout at the gym guaranteed to get my heart pumping and bring the life back into me!
That plan died minutes later when I found myself crawling back into bed, donning my lavender-scented sleep mask and pulling the covers up to my chin.
Sleep is good!
And you know what? I didn’t feel the slightest bit of guilt about it either. Sometimes you just have to listen and give your body rest when it needs it.
After snoozing for about 4 more hours, I knew it was finally time to get up and start my day. As I was getting ready for my shift, I brewed some coffee and made sure I gave myself enough time to sit and enjoy it with a little snack before heading to the hospital.
You guys know me…I’m a born dipper…so tell me, WHY have I never thought of this before?!
The little crispies soak up the coffee and literally MELT in your mouth…which actually reminds me of–
I interrupt this regularly scheduled What I Ate Wednesday for something of a very important nature!!!
