I am definitely a morning person. I get my workout and all my errands done before 1pm. At least I try. Around 3pm, after asking myself, why I keep myself so busy , I take my 2nd shower, get my energy back, get the hubby’s and puppy’s dinner ready and head to my dance practice. Whewwww……definitely no room for kids.
I have been doing lots of swimming and The Dailey Method. Swimming especially keeps me in shape for my Polynesian dancing. And I always need my oatmeal shake before heading out to the pool. Because after only 45 mins of laps, I’m pooped.
So there is a couple at my gym pool, who are ridiculously good swimmers. They even have American Flags on their swim caps. That sounds intimidating, doesn’t it? I basically try to avoid them. Today, the couple joins me in the pool. Dang it! The woman looking oh so fabulous in her ‘special’ goggle and ‘national swim team’ cap, (and me looking like an alien in my $10 goggle, doing my not-so-perfect butterfly-more like a crawling bug), she dives into the pool like ‘Missy Franklin’, does her perfect butterfly and turns(I bet without even catching a breath). Thank god I had my oatmeal shake today to (barely) keep up my splash going.
Try using quinoa instead of oats and sprinkle some wheat germs or chia seeds. Breakfast can’t get any better than this. Now drink up, conquer your day.
1/4 cup old fashion oats
1/2 cup almond milk
1 or half banana
1 teaspoon peanut butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Tiny sprinkle of sea salt (optional)
Wheat germs or chia seeds
Add some honey if you need more sweetness and Coconut water if you need to thin it out.
Sprinkle some wheatgerm and chia seeds if you have them.
Blend it all up!
As Ryan Lochte says, ‘Cheeeaaarhs’! (I swear i don’t really watch that show…..i swear)
