(Under)achiever

by Holly on September 21, 2009

in breakfast,dinner,lunch

  • Laundry
  • Grocery shopping
  • Target
  • Buy wedding presents
  • Clean apartment
  • Apply for a part-time/weekend job
  • Organize, organize, organize!
  • Eat lunch
  • 5pm Pilates class

So, maybe when it comes to to-do lists, I am an underachiever.  However, I know for a fact I am a breakfast overachiever. The proof is in the pics my friends, or in Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal.

1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup water + 1/3 cup skim milk
lots of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg +  ginger
1/2 cup pumpkin
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1 small box raisins
1 spoonful Cinnamon Raisin Swirl PB

Glorious.

Throughout the day, I chose just to achieve (not under- nor over-) by eating mini-meal style.

1 cup Chobani Plain Greek yog
1 crumbled Whole Berry Blast Pro Bar
3/4 cup strawberries

I swear there is Greek yog somewhere in there.

My other mini-meals included a jumbo coffee + 2% milk (twas’ needed today) and some Chex Mix alongside a perfect, slightly green banana.  That’s how I like em’ best.

For dinner, I overachieved once again.

mixed greens
1/2 purple pepper
3/4 cup cherry tomatoes
1 grated carrot
1/2 cup black beans
drizzle of BBQ sauce
grilled pepperjack cheese sammie on spelt bread

Dear pepperjack grilled cheese,

Why must you achieve so highly as to outshine the rest of my meal?  I bow down to you in thanks.

Love, Me

I continued the overachieving by heading to do laundry right after work. Check. Little do you know that while blogging, I am also buying wedding gifts on honeymoon registries. Check. Who knows? I may even apply for that part-time job online after I hit ‘Publish.’ Almost check.

Who am I kidding? This is what I am really going to do.
