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
- chia seeds
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.
