Can Coffee Clear This Fog?

So, I totally turned off my alarm clock this morning. I guess I needed the sleep, but it was not a good way to start my day. I actually decided in the shower that since I was already late getting ready, I should just take the day off (talk about the “all or nothing” mentality!).

I did still have time to make a good breakfast, thank goodness! I can’t function without a good meal in my belly  :)

Eggs and grits


Some canteloupe and strawberries


and a cup of milk


I also made a green monster to bring with me


This one has:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • about 1/4- 1/3 cup frozen cherries
  • 3 cups of so of kale
  • 1/2 Tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 tsp PB2

Nick just went to get us each a cup of coffee from a bakery here, so I’m sipping on that and hoping it will wake me up a bit  :)

Stay tuned for another Survivor Story at lunch and a special something tomorrow….


  1. Glad you got the extra rest!!

    I definitely thought that the cup of milk was just an empty cup, before reading the caption, haha :-D

    Happy Thursday, dear Brandi!!

  2. Each morning this week I have tried to talk myself into calling out. But I’ve come in and by 9:30 I’ve regretted it each day. Oh well it’s just the kind of week it is!
    Love your breakfast and your smoothie looks delicious!

  3. Love the cantaloupe and strawberries!

  4. Frozen cherries in the smoothie? Never tried it but sounds pretty delicious!

  5. Love the eats, green monster looks delightful! And cantaloupe? Ahhh, I want some!

  6. I’m glad your belly is feeling better! My one dog has a gurgly belly this morning and I keep wincing for her so I can only imagine how you felt last night!

  7. Hooray for an awesome breakfast and yay for pretty fruit.

    I hope you found a surprise burst of energy today. :-)
