5:45 am Wake-Ups are Now My Thing

Happy hump day friends! I can’t believe we’re already half way through the week!

I woke up right at 5:45 again yesterday morning. I’m liking these super early natural wake-ups 😉 . I read for a bit and then headed to my sister’s spin class! Pre-foot break, I went to her class every week, so it’s been great to be back. My foot did hurt a bit, but I don’t think I made anything worse.

For breakfast I had my usual Starbucks and GOLEAN cereal with strawberries and almond milk. I find this breakfast so filling – it keeps me full until lunchtime!


For lunch I had a big salad with baby spinach, carrots, tomatoes, an avocado, and light Italian dressing.


Then I got outside for a short walk! I spent the rest of the afternoon busy busy at work, and snacked on a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Quest Bar. As much as I’m liking No Cow Bars/trying to be mostly vegan, I seriously miss my Questies. This tasted soooo good.


I left the office a little before 5:00 and headed to a cardio pilates class! It was a great mix of cardio moves (jumping jacks, mountain climbers, plank jacks) and pilates moves (mostly abs and butt work). It felt great to really burn out my muscles.

When I got home I had a GT’s Gingerade kombucha.


And cooked up a huge stir fry with tofu, carrots, broccoli, jicama, peppers, radishes, and celery. I also made some green chili and cilantro polenta on the side, because I was feeling super hungry.


I spent the rest of the evening reading (my book club is tonight and I’m only about half way through the book, ah!) and doing some more BIP catch-up. I hope you guys had a great Tuesday and are ready to conquer this hump day!!

Are you a polenta fan? If so, how do you like to prepare it?

What’s your favorite protein bar?

  1. I’ve never had polenta but I’d love to try it! My husband is not really crazy about the no-meat thing…typical guy right??
    What do you think of that flavor kombucha?
    That is a good looking avocado!
    Enjoy your day 🙂
