Good morning!

I’m having one of those days where you sleep in and take your time getting ready – but somehow you’re still on running on time. How does it happen, I wonder? I can’t explain, but I like it. A lot. Especially if it means having time to go get a Starbucks before work! :D

Oh, about the new toffee flavor at Starby’s, I must be on something because it doesn’t exist – although they do have a new cherry mocha flavor. I actually don’t like chocolate and cherry. Come to think of it, I don’t really like coffee and fruit. So, this new flavor is, apparently, a no-go for me! I’ll stick with my skinny vanilla latte’s. ;)

Breakfast is packed to-go this morning and comes with some assembly instructions!

Take one container of Cheerios, dried cranberries and sliced almonds…

(cannot get enough of this combo – best ever!)

Slice in one banana (looking awfully ripe 8O ), pour on some almond milk and devour! Doesn’t get much more simple, or delish, than that.

Lunch is easier. ;) I couldn’t stop dreeeeeaming about that ham & apricot panini from last night, so I recreated it in cold form!

That’s one thin bun, smeared with some apricot preserves, topped with a slice of cheddar cheese, and few slices of low-sodium deli ham. This sandwich is seriously TDF. The apricot preserves (which has chunks of dried apricots!) with the ham kind of mimics a glazed ham you might have at Easter or something. Scrumptious!

And a Pink Lady. Standard!

Alrighty, I’m off, my friends! Have a great hump day and don’t forget that you have until 3pm central today to enter the Chia Seed Giveaway! Three ways to win – oooo yeah! :D

ps my abs are sooooo sore from yesterday’s Total Body Workout! As much as I hate to admit it, it was the exercises with the blue ball that really made me WORK. Give it a try!


What’s one thing you’d like to clear up about your city, state or country?

Although we HEART our farmers here in Iowa – not all Iowans live on farms. Also we grow corn not potatoes (that’s Idaho!) ;)
