Running on Empty

Happy Friday! I hope you are enjoying your day so far today, whether you’re working or not!

I can’t believe I’m just now eating breakfast at 10 am – this is so unlike me  :)  We’ve had a good morning so far, though.

We got up and went on a 3 mile run this morning, came back, showered, got dressed and I worked on getting breakfast components together while Nick cleaned the shower for me.


I had mixed up some muesli the other night (1 cup wheat flakes, 1 cup skim, 1 cup ff plain yogurt), so I dished that up for us and got out some fruit, nuts, and honey.


I also mixed in a Tbsp of chia seeds to the muesli! I topped mine with some kiwi, strawberries, raspberries, 1 Tbsp pecans, cinnamon, and a tsp of honey.


I really wanted some oatmeal, but after running/showering, I just couldn’t make a hot breakfast.

Nick also made some french press coffee for us!!! Yes, I am that excited about it. We haven’t had “french press quality” coffee in a while but we picked some up yesterday.


Worth the wait, for sure, but I am happy we’re stocked on coffee for a while  :)

I’m off to start my busy day!

  • Pedicure with a friend at 11
  • Grocery shopping, then home to…
  • Bake dessert
  • Prep dinner/weekend stuff
  • Clean house
  • Finish laundry

Whew – I better get started!

What makes a weekend feel like a “weekend” to you?

Mine is not having to use alarms. I love it.


  1. Good luck with your To Do List!! Sounds a lot like mine – who knew there was so much to do in order to enjoy a holiday ;)

  2. It’s really only the weekend when my alarm DOESNT go off at 5 a.m.!!!! Enjoy your holiday!

  3. Another fantastic breakfast! AND coffee… love it!

  4. He cleaned the shower for you?! Good man!!

    Good luck with all your stuff! I think not having to use an alarm and being able to stay up past ten, lol!

  5. Weekend = getting to run as long as I want without having to rush home to get ready for work!

  6. What a pretty breakfast!

    Good luck with your to-do list!

  7. i think today feels like the first real weekend i’ve had in ages!! no homework, no real to-do list … just relaxing and knowing i still have two more full days :-D

    congrats on your morning productivity! i love teamwork shower-clean-breakfast-prep system.

  8. Yup, no alarms means weekends to me too, – though for some reason I always wake up even earlier…

  9. I agree – the weekend means no alarms!

  10. Whew, hope your to-do list is going well! I love not having to set the alarm on the weekend. Sometimes I do anyway, but it’s usually later :D
