Oh, it's one of "Those" Days!

Do you ever have mornings like this?! I woke up at 5:30 when The Husband got home from work (yeah for only 1 more day of working nights!) a 1/2 hour before my alarm. I had planned on sleeping in a little til 6:00 since I was up working until 1130 last night - dooooh! No early start to my day turned into being early, then, late.

I got ready, packed up all my stuff, walked out the door and realized I forgot to feed our super cute cat that adopted us - so I quickly set my stuff down, fed the cat and left.


In the car I realize I forgot my Magic Bullet and need it for my smoothie.....drove back to the house, grabbed it, picked up my co-worker and headed into work (yeah for carpooling!) Get to work to make my smoothie and realize I forgot the top to my magic bullet - the important part needed to blend - AHHHH! Luckily my co-worker saved the day and let me use the kitchen blender - phew!

Good start, right.......Breakfast was awesome however, once, I did ACTUALLY get it made up. I started with a fabulous berry smoothie.


1 c ff milk
1/2 c ff greek yogurt
splash of pure vanilla extract
1/2 c frozen raspberries
handful of fresh blueberries

I was sooooo excited that the Jump Start Diet called for Almond Butter today - I have seriously been missing my nut butters! Is it possible to have nut butter withdrawals?! I had 1 Tbsp freshly ground organic almond butter from Whole Foods with 1 Tbsp of Organic Apricot Preserves on a Thomas Double Fiber English Muffin.


It was soooooo GOOD! I rounded everything out with some half caf and my Nathan Bottle of water! A total liquid breakfast.....


My quick summary recap for yesterday:

2,826 Calories Burned
12,880 Steps Taken
~ 1,460+/- Calories Consumed

Today is going to be a good day, today is going to be a good day.....this is my mantra today :)

It isgoing to be a super busy day, but, I am hoping to get out for a lunchtime stroll but not sure - may have to save my workouts for tonight.....catch you later today or tonight!

Happy Thursday All!!!


  1. i found myself shaking my head as i read your post, or is it nodding.. yep, nodding.. because i can totally relate. good thing you had the blender! i am contemplating buying another bullet just so i dont have to lug it back and forth! glad things all worked out!

  2. Today will be a great day! You are aware, in a great mood, and you're filled with plenty of liquids!! :)

  3. I believe it is quite possible to have nut butter withdrawl -lol!!! Love almond butter!

  4. Janetha ~ Thanks! I am usually so good about getting everything ready the night before to grab and go in the morning. I guess this is what happens when I try to do it on the fly :)

    Ashley ~ Thanks for the positive thoughts...with all the liquids at least I'll get in extra steps walking back/forth.

    Marisa ~ Have you ever made your own almond butter? I have found I am pretty picky and do not like anyting in mine except nuts. The real deal is so good! Hope you had a great day!

  5. Vicky ~ thanks, she is really a sweet kitty - love her!
