Alarm Fail

What’s wrong with this picture?

It’s hard to tell in the above photo, but do your see how the “T” between the “W” and “F” is highlighted? Umm… yeah. New phone = new alarm = I didn’t realize when I was setting my alarm for this morning, that I was actually setting it for Thursday. Fail.

I knew I had messed up when I woke up to my 6:30 alarm ring tone instead of the new 5:30 ring tone (yes, I have different ringtones for different alarms). Since swim practice started at 6:30, this was a clear indication that I had missed it. Bummer. I hate missing things for stupid reasons, and not double checking my alarm was a stupid reason.

So I sent a quick message to my teammates apologizing for my absence, grabbed my iPad with my book for bookclub, and headed to the gym. I did 30 minutes walking on the treadmill at 4.0 with 7% incline, followed by Fitness Perks’ “Give a 10″ Weights Workout.

When’s the last time your alarm clock failed you? I have a fear that something is going to happen with my alarm the morning of a race, so I usually set 3 or 4 different alarms just in case. Maybe I need to do that for morning swim practice?

I’ve had an almost-empty jar of honey peanut butter sitting the fridge for a week now. When I got back from the gym I decided to do a quick-y version of overnight oats in a jar. (more like 30 minutes oats in a jar ;) )

In the jar:

  • honey peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • Vanilla Chobani
  • milk
  • chia seeds
  • cinnamon
  • raisins

I put the jar back in the fridge while I showered and did some laundry (maybe 30 minutes). When you do the short-cut approach to “overnight oats” the oats never thickens up as much as they would if you really did soak them overnight. It’s still edible when you’re in a hurry/ impatient, but if you remember to do it the night before, it’s sooooo much better. :)

On top I had some fresh blueberries and walnuts.

I added too much milk, so these were a bit watery. Not my best mix. Le sigh.
