This morning it hit me: I get stuck in a rut a lot. No, I'm not talking about getting stuck in a rut like an ex boyfriend in college who lived out in the sticks, and one laaaate night after boozing it up, drove his truck part of the way home before deciding it probably wasn't a good idea to be driving, so he stopped on a back road (we're talking gravel dirt road) and hoofed it the rest of the way home. When he got up the next morning his dad asked where his truck was, and they couldn't find it. They had to go driving around until they found it, stopped in the middle of the road, door open, running.
I'll tell you what: BREAKFAST.
Now that you're THOROUGHLY confused, let me 'splain. I find something I like for breakfast and eat it and eat it and eat it until I can't eat it anymore. A few years ago it was cinnamon waffles, Fage yogurt, honey and peaches. Then it was toast with smooshed avocado, sea salt, and swiss cheese (thanks to my friend Gina).
For a while it was a smoothie with Fage, skim, bananas, vanilla, protein powder and honey. Then Fage with clementines and honey (I'm sensing a theme here).
As of this morning, it is ricotta cheese, strawberries, and toast with almond butter and honey.
On the weekends it is two poached eggs on toast, lightly buttered, with sea salt and cracked pepper.
I will eat the hell outta the poached eggs and ricotta breakfasts until I'm sick of them and have to find something else to obsess on, breakfastorially speaking. Something I am NOT obsessed about? The damn compression binder that I have to wear for 2 - 4 more weeks. Seriously, peeps, it is driving me NUTSO. It comes up to just under my bewbs, and has bike shorts on bottom that come to just above my knees. If I try to roll the legs up when I want to wear something shorter, it practically cuts the circulation off in my legs and they shrivel up and fall off. I ain't even lyin. I've had to have them reattached twice now. Thanks a lot, doc.
And for my sister, who said, "I think you should wait until summer to have your tummy tuck," I say "ARE YOU CRAZY????" Hopefully it won't be too frigging hot in the next few weeks as I continue to wear this damn thing (though it was 92 yesterday, so I don't have much hope). I say let's get it OVER with so I'm out of it and into a swimsuit by the time the pools open.
So back to my original topic - am I the only one who obsesses over my b-fast? Please tell me there are others of us out there. Share. This is a safe place. And if you can give me some ideas for my next breakfast while you're at it, I'd appreciate it.
EDIT: Oh hey - lookit that - it's Everybody Everwear today, and the theme is florals. And I just happen to be wearing a floral! Serendipity! Check it out here!
