I'm not a fan of mornings. Never have been, don't think I ever will be. I used to get tickets in high school because I had to park on the curb to make it to my AP chemistry class without a tardy. I iron my clothes and lay them out, along with my little guy's clothing at night. I put my make-up on in the car (don't judge). I air-dry my hair - all for a couple extra minutes of sleep.
I could stay up until 2:00 am and not get tired, but once my head hits that pillow, I'm gone. I thought being a mommie would change that, but I'm only a little more used to getting up a gazillion times in the middle of the night and early in the morning (God blessed me with a child that absolutely hates to sleep).
When I got a new director at work, I informed him that I would be coming in at 8:30 in the mornings because I don't function well any earlier than that. Luckily, he's cool with that. But I'm also the one that checks e-mail at 11:00 just to be sure I'm on top of things, so he's extra cool with that.
So, to my point, I've finally found the perfect breakfast for me (and anyone else that needs to get going fast in the mornings and stay full until lunch). I've kicked my Diet Coke habit and have switched to this little treat each morning: mix ice cubes, vanilla soy milk, one banana and a teaspoon of flaxseed in a blender for about a minute and that's it! I drink it on the way to work and love it! (My Orla Kiely for Target glass makes it even yummier!) Try it - you'll love it too!
