Pumpkin pie for breakfast!

I actually obeyed my alarm and got up at 7 this morning. I had a slice of 10 grain bread with PB and honey before heading over to the gym.

I used the elliptical instead of the bike today, to switch things up.

I used the microwave today to save time. I made a big bowl of pumpkin oats, using:

2/3 cup oats

1 cup water

1/2 cup pumpkin

1 tsp flax seeds

1 tsp walnuts

1 tbsp brown sugar

handful raisins

dollop fat free plain yogurt


It was delicious. It felt so indulgent, like I was eating a real pie! I had a cup of this Pink Grapefruit Green Tea, part of the "Sip for the Cure" to benefit breast cancer. It was on sale at the grocery store a couple days ago, so I picked a box up. Pretty tasty!

Time to shower and get ready.... Ari will be here in less than 36 hours! I may be singing some Pointer Sisters in the tub...
