Brain Fog

January 11, 2010 at 8:55 am 11 comments

My brain is having a hard time remembering it’s supposed to actually work this morning.

Case in point:

I put my oats in the microwave then walked away (Nope, didn’t turn it on)

I opened the jar of PB, put the spoon next to it, closed the jar of PB, and put it away. (Didn’t get any out)


I also spilled coffee on my new white-fabric chair. But with the magical powers of Shout, vinegar, and baking soda combined, permanent damage was minimized.

I thought I would regale you with a picture of my oats pre-stirred this morning.


Quite a bit more attractive, huh?!

The mix included oats, almond milk, unsweetened coconut, wheat germ, pecans, and cottage cheese. Of course I added a spoonful of PB after stirring was completed 😉

I also made myself a latte to ward off the case of the Mondays syndrome.

coffee foam

If you don’t yet know my secrets to a homemade latte, the key is shake-shake-shaking the milk up BEFORE heating it up. (So it doesn’t explode all over you…ask me how I learned this.) Then pour it in to hot coffee and voila, a coffeehouse caliber latte without the big bucks. I don’t so much care about the foam, but something about the steamed milk just makes it so much better than my regular cup of coffee with milk poured in cold.

Taking a look at my training schedule, I’ll be running 12 miles this week! 3.5 on Tues and Thurs, and 5 on Sunday! Can’t wait to see how they go 🙂

    Sometimes I don’t know where my head is either. Have fun running this week. Luckily, it is suppose to warm up as the week goes on.

    Mondays can be brutal some weeks. I love that latte — it is so fancy 🙂

    Haha…I do stuff like that all the time!! Not walk away without turning on the microwave (at least not yet) but one time I put a bag of cheese in the pantry instead of the fridge…then ate it anyway b/c I didn’t want to waste it. Haha.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Your training schedule looks great. I did my first half in November and it was a great experience.

    I’m new to your blog…. you mentioned being in school. What are you studying. I think, if I read you’re “about” page correctly you are an RD? I am back in school myself to be an RD, so I am always interested in others doing the same. I’ll be reading 🙂

    This morning I put the milk in the freezer after I was done with it. Oops
