Back To It

by Meghann on October 14, 2011

My return to normalcy hit me when my alarm went off at 6:30 this morning. The constant *beep*beep* of an alarm is a sure signal that vacation is over. Other signals? Going through the motions of getting up, dog walking, and heading out for a run that doesn’t take place on a beautiful ship. Blah.

My run may not have been in the open waters, but it did feel nice to escape the treadmill and head out on the open road with nothing but my spare key and an ipod. If I closed my eyes I could pretend there was a beautiful sun rising over the water ahead of me – with no swaying and stumbling required.

I knocked out 6 miles at a steady pace and appreciated the lack of humidity Florida is experiencing right now. If I ever complain about it again – just remind me how bad Cozumel is and I promise to promptly shut my pie hole.

Breakfast was the return to an old favorite that had been missing from my life this week: cereal.


In the bowl:

  • 1/2 cup Uncle Sam Honey Almond
  • 1/2 cup Cinnamon Cheerios
  • 1/2 cup Erewhon Brown Rice Crispies w/ Mixed Berries
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Apple
  • Chopped Dates
  • Cinnamon


Oh, yeah. That’s the stuff. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m going to attempt to play catch up with emails and messages this morning.

Back to work I go.

All Those cereals mixed sound great! Do you know if the uncle Sam is gluten free?

Do you ever feel like you need a vacation from vacation? After a long vacay, I kinda always feel that way.

At least it’s Friday and you can spend the weekend getting things back together! Coming back from a trip is definitely a let down, and I am terrible at unpacking my suitcase in a timely manner. I usually leave it for at least a week ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is going to sound crazy, and I promise I don’t live under a rock, but I just discovered Uncle Sam cereals. I know, I know!! They’re amazing.

I hate it when vacation ends. It almost feels unfair. Haha. The weather is so beautiful in Texas as well. It’s actually not in the 90s right now. I can’t wait for class to be out so I can get outside!

I’m always happy to return to my own kitchen and bed, but it’s pretty nice to have someone else making you meals, I’d say. ๐Ÿ™‚
