Happier Then A Bird With A French Fry

  It's amazing what a new job/new schedule can do for someone. Having some extra time in the morning plus a shorter commute is making me happier then I have been in a long time.

I was able to take kickboxing before work yesterday. That has never happened.
I cut out 10 minutes early to shower because I wasn't sure if I was going to have enough time to get ready and make it to work on time, but I did.

I am really starting to see changes with my body, mostly because I am changing up my workouts every week. The 5 am classes I have been taking [when I actually get up] are doing a number on my muscles. I am able to see myself leaning out for the first time....ever, which is enough motivation for me to wake my booty up and get there.

This morning I took a 45 minute arms and abs class at 5:15 then stayed for 30 minutes of cardio before calling it a morning.

On my drive home I decided I wanted to make oatmeal with chocolate zico in place of water for added electrolytes and deliciousness, however I got a little crazy with my ingredients and this happened:

I added a scoop of chocolate egg protein powder in with the oats, coconut water and a splash of almond milk and it resulted in the perfect oatmeal bowl
Since there was a hole to fill I figured the best option would be peanut butter[ I would have used almond butter but I am ::gasp:: all out] and let me tell you, this was welcomed mistake.

If you want an actual recipe for this let me know and I'll make sure to use proper measuring tools to share it with all of you.

Okay kids it's time for me to kick myself into high gear and get ready for work!
