cold day. warm oats.

Sunday’s are always the weirdest days.  The combination of relaxation and excitement that the weekend brings is slowly wearing off and coming to a close and usually all I want to do is absolutely nothing.  That feeling combined with the sub-zero temperatures outside made today the absolute perfect day for lounging around with my pup and watching tons of Friends.

I started out my day with a delicious bowl of oats topped with cinnamon, vanilla and of course sprinkles.  I try and add sprinkles to my oatmeal everyday because they add just a touch of sweetness, but more importantly they instantly brighten my day!

I love eggs.  Love ’em.  Perfect source of protein and you can throw anything in there that your little heart desires.  Today’s bowl consisted of:

  • two egg whites
  • one whole egg
  • chopped mushrooms
  • chopped onions
  • chopped zucchini
  • topped off with a tbsp of medium salsa

It doesn’t get much better than that.  With a side of an apple and some greek yogurt for dessert, I was ready to tackle day one of Kayla Itsine’s BBG which I’ll discuss in my next post.

For now, I’m going to spend my last couple of weekend hours huddled with my dog and my boyfriend for warmth and praying there’s no more sub-zero temps in my future.
