Liquid Breakfast

by Heather on April 15, 2010

Happy Thursday morning to you all!  Man, is it just me or has this week FLOWN by? I have my knee appointment this morning…YIKES!…so I’ll definitely keep y’all updated!

Dinner last night with Kraig & Amanda was so fun! I don’t know why we just haven’t been able to do it before, but hopefully we’ll be able to get together more often.  They have an amazing story, and are in the process of sharing their journey to adoption through their blog.  So yes, dinner = amazing.  We had hamburgers and bratwursts!  A vegetarian’s nightmare, but it was amazing.  I had one of each and some sweet potato fries:

I haven’t had a burger or brat since before I became a vegetarian for Lent, so this was heavenly.  Plus I was starving because of my light-yet-veggie-packed lunch!  The brat was amazing…

Reminds me of summer and made me thankful it’s right around the corner!  When we got home I put together some S’mores brownies by Jessica, did some blog reading, and then hit the sack!  This morning I woke up and tried my hand at some Pilates Sculpt, but there were a lot of squats and my knee just couldn’t handle it.  I decided I might as well just go snuggle with Nate and the pups instead :)  I made a new Green Monster this morning (that’s actually green)!  I present the Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Monster:

AH-MAY-ZING.  Here’s the mix:

  • 1 cup nonfat cow’s milk (or whatever milk you prefer)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 packet Truvia
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/2-1 cup of ice cubes

Blend til smooth and enjoy!  At first I was kind of wary, but it just tastes so good once it hits the lips! ;)  That, coupled with some iced tea, was the perfect liquid breakfast!

I’m in a great mood today, even though I’m a little scared about going to the doctor.  I was telling Nate I’m scared of 2 things:

  1. I’m scared that it might be something serious that will require drastic measures to fix and;
  2. I’m also scared that it’s something that’s not a big deal and I’ll have spent all this time in pain because of something that would have been simple to fix.

I know those fears might be silly, but are still very real.  The appointment is at 10:30 MST, so I’ll make sure I’ll let you guys know via Twitter and then in my post later today about the results!

Have you ever been afraid to go to the doctor?  Why (if you want to share)?  Were your fears founded or just something silly, like me being afraid I’ll just be embarrassed because it’s no big deal? The only other time I’ve been really nervous to go to the doctor was when I had mono.  I didn’t REALLY know that I had it, but deep down I did, and just didn’t want to hear the bad news!
