James gets up at 3:45 most mornings, which mean that the coffee time that we always had isn’t happening… Even though I get up pretty early most mornings- there is no way that I’m going to be up THAT early. Because of the line of work he is in, he works at different job sites often. Sometimes that means that he can get up at a normal time, and luck would have it that this morning was one of those days! I was passed out this morning, hard core and didn’t hear the alarm go off (I normally don’t) so when he came back upstairs to tell me that it was time to get up and that the coffee was already done I was in super zombie mode.source
The morning was great! It had been so long since we enjoyed a morning together and I loved drinking our coffees while sitting next to the christmas tree :) Once J said good bye and headed off to work I spent some time relaxing and playing online before suiting up for the gym. Since it was the first time in a while that I would get to the gym before work I was ready to get into it and be done with my workout before 8 am.. I ate 1/2 of a ProBar and a bite of banana with pb before jetting off..

I got home right in time for some breakfast which was the rest of that banana, 1/2 tbsp of pb, 1/2 scoop of EAS chocolate whey protein, 2 tbsp ground flax seed, 1/2 cup nonfat greek yogurt and topped with a small handful of chocolate covered raisins… YUM YUM YUM.. I was completely starved so it was pretty awesome..
