Now, I am not one of those people who can grab a banana and head to the gym. I am a breakfast girl, through and through. So, I nice warm bowl of oats was my breakfast of choice this morning.
In today's mix:
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup water
forgot the chia seeds...so sad!
After my breakfast of champions I headed to the gym around 6:45am. Today was just a cardio day and I was planning to run but no dice with the rain. And, because I am a suck and I hate cardio I wasn't gonna hit up the treadmill...soooo boooring. So, elliptical it was. I did 30mins of intervals and had a good sweat on when I was done. Yep, that's me in all my "no makeup except for the eye makeup I didn't wash off last night" sweaty glory.
After the glorious photo above was taken I immediately hopped in the shower and got ready for work. I promise I clean up nice.
I packed my lunch the night before so it was ready to go this morning. A tasty mix of grilled chicken, brown rice and mixed roasted veggies. There was also a serving of plain Greek yogurt with apricot preserves.
Are you looking forward to this Thanksgiving weekend? I am. For the first time ever my brother and I are going to attempt to pull together a Thanksgiving Dinner for the family. Usually this is mom's domain but she has not been 100% lately so we are hoping to pull off something at least half as good. My brother is the family chef so I will be looking to him for the big stuff - turkey, stuffing, potatoes. He even makes his own dinner rolls these days. It's pretty impressive. Even if I think he is just trying to buy my mother's affection with his culinary creations. Whatever!
I have to confess that while I do love to cook I am really not that great at it. But, when it comes to dessert I am all over giving it the old college try because bad dessert is better than no dessert at all. So, with my brother's permission I will be in charge of dessert. Hopefully I will remember to take some pictures of the kitchen tornado that will result from our attempt.
What are some of your favourite Thanksgiving dishes?
