When did it get so dark in the mornings?
Today is my day off, from workouts, and I thoroughly enjoyed “sleeping in” until 6:30AM. I actually could not figure out what that noise was at 6:30AM until I realized that my alarm had been going off for 5 minutes. I feel awake and refreshed though… ready to tackle the day. But first, a little cup of joy…
My mornings have forever changed with the creation of Dunkin Donuts K-Cups! Their coffee is such a treat and it’s making me uber happy these days. In other news, I am striving to drink my coffee with only a splash of fat free half and half. It’s easy to add a packet of splenda or a little sugar, but I love how coffee tastes so why sweeten it? I also think Neal’s theories on artificial sweeteners is starting to get to me.
Do you use artificial sweeteners? Any thoughts?
I’ve also been drinking 12 oz. of water each morning with 2 scoops of Amazing Grass‘ GREENSuperFood in Orange Dreamsicle.
I won these two products at the Healthy Living Summit conference back in August. This week is the first week I’ve tried them and I’m honestly in love. They also have a fantastic website where I signed up for their 2 week challenge. I can’t say that I feel different (in three days), but the drink powder is really tasty and it feels great knowing that I’m putting such wonderful nutrients into my body.
Today looks to be a good day, rainy but good. After work I need to go to a coffee shop to get some reading done. (Anyone in DC recommend a cute coffee shop near a metro stop that isn’t Starbucks?) Last night I had this grand plan to get all of my graduate work done for one of my classes but by the time I got home I was pooped. Instead I watched Modern Family, which was awesome, and half of Law and Order SVU, not so awesome. I love SVU, but last night’s episode was really odd and was too much like the real life case of Dominique-Strauss Kahn and the NYC maid. It kinda bothered me that it was so close to that story.
Have a very happy Thursday and continue to make healthy living choices!
