Hello all! It’s Wednesday 🙂 Or, as many like to refer to it, “Humpday”. I’m sorry – I mean, I get it and all. Getting over that middle-of-the-week hump = humpday. But really. They couldn’t have come up with a better name for it? Like Middle-day. Or Almost-Friday day ?  Or Jesus-Christmas-It’s-Only-Freakin-Wednesday-day? I like the last one best. ANYWAY…

Uncle Al and I were up and at ‘em for another 6 a.m. workout today. I know, it’s a little unnecessary for me to reiterate the 6 am part whenever I can. But I’m proud. I’m proud that…

1.) I can function enough to dress myself and drive to the gym at 5:55 a.m.

2.) This is the 5th time we’ve gone this early.

3.) I have maintained my dignity while surrounding myself with my uncle, who now has pink eye in, not one, but BOTH eyes, and thus looks like a drunken, blind, escaped convict.

Go me. I know it’s probably getting boring to read about, so I promise, promise, promise to take my camera with me to the gym tomorrow. In fact, if you remember and you feel like commenting later, COMMENT and tell me not to forget. I get all the comments to my Blackberry (because I like to feel important) so don’t hold back! Onwards to breakfast…

I haven’t had oatmeal in a while, and being short on groceries and options, I knew today was the day. And I’m happy I made that choice because I think I had the BEST oatmeal ever! I used the basics…

* 1/2 cup oats

* 1/2 cup water

* 1/2 cup skim milk

And Cinnamon Brown Sugar

Like the bottle? My mom actually got this for Mark’s new apartment and umm, well…he wasn’t using it so I confiscated it. Shoot, he’s going to see this since he checks the blog/facebook status updates like it’s his job. Oh well, IT’S MINE NOW!

Plus, some crumbled pieces from the DELICIOUS Coconut Bars we won at the Summit, compliments of Joe and Betsy.

All together with A SCOOP OF BARNEY BUTTER…

So good there had to be two pictures… (Mmm…Food Porn!)

Plus an Iced-Coffee from DD that I demanded my uncle to pick up for me on the way home from the gym – as re-payment of torturing him every day and whipping him into shape a la Jillian Michaels.

And just in case anyone was wondering, here’s what’s currently in my drawer at work…

SWAG. (Can you tell I’m realizing I’m going to be late getting back from lunch?)

Here’s a quick shot of lunch, since I’m currently blogging from Starbucks due to internet issues at home 😦 …

au 057

* Chopped broccoli rabe

* Cous-Cous Salad

* Sprinkle of feta cheese

* Spoon of guacamole


Delicious. And I’m late. More later!
