I had plans to go to the gym for some elliptical action this morning, but when my alarm went off at 7, my body felt as if it had been hit by a truck.
My mind was awake…but my muscles just weren’t! So I did a few ab exercises at my apartment and decided to save my real workout for this afternoon, since I have the day off work :) I’m going to give Jenny’s elliptical workout a try!
My tummy woke up right away (as usual) and soon starting begging me for breakfast. Upon opening my cabinet, I discovered this…
Yes, that is an [almost] empty jar of PB & Co’s Cinnamon Raisin Swirl. You may remember my first experience with this lovely peanut butter, so you should know that my first reaction to finding this empty jar was utter despair.
However, my disappointment quickly vanished when I realized that an empty PB jar only means one thing…OIAJ!!! I’ve been excited to eat my oatmeal out of this baby since I first bought it. Needless to say, breakfast was epic.
Who invented OIAJ? I would like to give them a kiss.
It’s not exactly the most beautiful breakfast…but it was seriously delicious.
In about 5 minutes flat, this…
turned into this…
I’m definitely a member of the clean
plate jar club!
I’ve always been a good eater, but I feel like within the past couple of years, I have become an extremely dedicated member of the clean plate club! I was talking to my mom about this weekend; if there is a bite or two of food left on my plate, I will almost always eat it. Even if I am already stuffed!! I’ve definitely been known to use my fingers to swipe a plate or bowl clean, as well.
I kind of think that moving away from home and being responsible for buying and preparing my own food has made me more like this. Grocery shopping for myself made me realize how expensive food is, especially healthy food! I think that I always feel like I need to eat every last bite so as not to let anything go to waste.
Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing…
But in the case of PB & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl?
Letting any go to waste just seems wrong!
Any other members of the clean plate/jar/bowl/yogurt container club out there? :)
Happy Thursday, friends!
