Breakfast All Day

Posted: March 28, 2011 at 9:25 am

Catching up from the weekend?

I don’t know why, but the past few weekends have been very chill. Typically our weekends zoom by with so much to do. I like having a full plate of fun activities, but I admit it has felt nice to have some low-key time recently. This weekend was perfect for it, too! Our forecast looked like this basically the entire weekend…

weather

Cloudy. Rainy. Chilly. Dreary. We did just what that type of weather entails.

On Saturday, after my intense workout, we spent the day visiting my parents. It included lots of snuggles on the couch while my mom continues to get adjusted to her new treatments for Multiple Sclerosis. I don’t like seeing her not feel well. I think a couple cuties helped cheer her up, though.

mom&b mom&m

Saturday night we all hit the hay early. At 9 pm I wanted bed. Then, we all slept until about 8:30 (well, besides the 3am feeding). Not quite sure how that happened, but I’ll take it. You would think with the extra sleep we would set out for a productive morning.

oats&sausage

I fueled properly with 1/3 cup oats, 1/2 container Peach Chobani, a dollop of melted peanut butter, and an apple chicken sausage. Then, proceeded to plop on the couch.

beauty&beast

Watching Beauty & The Beast cuddled up on the couch together felt like a better idea than anything deemed “productive”. I have to say – nothing compares to the Disney classics. I now want a marathon Disney day with Aladdin, Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Bambi, and Dumbo.

I did finally manage to peel myself out of my PJs for lunch.

pbbmuffin

I had an english muffin with peanut butter and banana. Something about icky weather makes me crave simple, breakfast food so I went with it. Plus, it makes for a good pre-run meal if I give it enough time to digest fully. I had to run on the treadmill because I didn’t feel like braving the chill or chance of rain. I did some intervals to keep the boredom from setting in.

Minutes Speed
0-5 6.0
5-10 6.5
10-15 7.0
15-20 6.0
20-25 6.5
25-30 7.0
30-35 6.0
35-40 6.5
40-45 7.0

In the end, I covered 4.86 miles in my 45 minutes for an average pace of 9:15.

After that I came home craving MORE breakfast food! If I want breakfast three times a day and then a big stir-fry for dinner, so be it.

scramble cereal

This time I went for a small bowl of cheerios with strawberries, almonds, & almond milk and a repeat of that tasty egg scramble on the side. I foresee a new obsession with these combos. Quite satisfying.

To end out my weekend, I deemed the run worthy productivity and then curled up with my kiddos again. This time, with some books. I think that’s the best productivity out there anyways. ;)  

Questions of the Day –

  • What is your favorite classic Disney movie?
  • What things do you crave on cloudy, chilly, rainy days?

    Sounds like a wonderful day. And breakfast for all your meals sounds divine. I love strawberries with cereal and greek yogurt.

    I hope your mother is doing well and that her treatment is effective without being painful.

    I love the Little Mermaid and Hercules (Meg cracks me up).

  2. I think Beauty and the Beast might be my favorite!!

    I could easily live on breakfast foods! I think it’s my favorite meal of the day and sometimes I eat it for every meal :)

    I hope your mom gets used to her meds. soon and feels better. I’m sure your little munchkins cheer her up!

    My favorite classic Disney movie is definitely The Little Mermaid! I know ever word to all the songs (although I do know all the words to the songs in The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast too). I love having little girls and sharing the Disney movies with them. I’m also a fan of the new classics – The Princess & the Frog and Tangled. : )
