Happy President’s Day! I hope that some of you are enjoying a day off. Unfortunately, I am not. I taught 6 a.m. BodyPump (and had quite a few members who came for early class on their day off…so awesome!) and now I have to spend the rest of my day in CPR and First Aid certification. The Y requires all staff to renew annually so it’s that time again for me. They are actually requiring us to get CPR for the Professional Responder this year so the training is even longer and more in depth. It will be a long day!
If you’re catching up on weekend posts, I traveled down to Georgia and had dinner in Athens on Friday night and then helped a Y in Covington launch BodyPump 80 on Saturday before heading to Atlanta to spend the rest of the weekend with my parents. I got back to Charlotte around 8 p.m. last night. The traffic and the weather were both terrible for my drive. It was not relaxing whatsoever!
A look at Sunday eats plus some golden retriever cuteness!
I made a bowl of oatmeal when I finally drug myself out of bed a little after 9. I really like mixing oats and oat bran when I make oatmeal but my parents didn’t have oat bran. They did have cream of wheat. I ended up using a little over 1/4 cup of oats and one tablespoon of cream of wheat in this batch with bananas, blueberries and raspberries. Loved the fluffiness that the cream of wheat provided.
I was craving eggs yesterday so I made egg, avocado and cheese sandwiches for lunch. I made one for my mom too and she approved. Runny egg and cheese sandwiches are the best.
I swung into Whole Foods on my way out of Atlanta to pick up a kombucha for the road. It took me almost an hour to get out of Atlanta…the downtown connector was totally slammed so I had to get off and wind through town to pick up the interstate a little more north. I was annoyed that it took so long but at least my detour took me past Whole Foods.
It rained for my entire drive home but I tried to just listen to an audio book and zone out. At one point I was completely stopped on the Interstate about an hour out of Charlotte due to a wreck and feeling majorly anxious to get home. When I finally did get home I knew exactly what I wanted for dinner – pizza! I put together this pita pizza in about 10 minutes and it was amazing. I have homemade wheat pita in the freezer and it’s perfect for quick pizzas. I topped it with the last of the leftover roasted veggies and tofu from the fridge and mozzarella cheese.
Since I was so all over the place over the course of the weekend, I had to leave Sullie in Charlotte. Luckily, I had my parents golden, Sam, to fill the void. How cute is he? If you want to see even MORE golden retriever cuteness, you MUST check out Lee’s post today. She did a round up of golden retrievers of the blog world and it’s pretty much the most amazing post ever! 🙂
And a cute picture of Sullie just because she deserves some blog love too!
Have a great day!
