Good! I slept like a baby; I’m rested and ready to seize the day.

Cirque du Soleil is in town to perform “Alegria”! We have tickets in the cheap seats (and at $40 each, still not that cheap) but we are excited! We’ve been to two performances before (one in New York and one in Connecticut) but have never seen “Alegria”. The music of this particular show has a lot of meaning to me, as my host family from when I was studying abroad in college in Argentina introduced it to me, and the CD was playing all the time in their house. It was like the soundtrack to Lucas’s and my budding romance!

Breakfast: I whipped up a batch of oats-to-go for Lucas and me. This is what today’s batch had, serves 2.
-2/3 cup steel cut oats
-1 and 1/2 cups water
-3/4 cup soymilk
-4 tbs oat bran
-4 tbs Ezekiel Original
-2 tbs dried currants
-2 tbs flaxseeds
-2 tbs agave nectar

My hamstrings are so sore, but I don’t know why!

Ok. I got enough sleep (10:30-6:30) but I feel kind of tired and have had some work-stuff on my mind.

Breakfast: A bowl of steel cut oats with 2 tbs Ezekiel Original, 1 tbs oat bran, 3/4 tbs flaxseed, 1 tbs dried currants, 1 tbs agave nectar.

Kind of looks like a big oatmeal cookie! (Use your imagination.)

I’m saving a big plastic container (from salad) that was in the fridge at work to take home to recycle.
