Warm weather recovery

I wish it was warm.... just like everyone else in the world (or in the midwest and new england areas at least). After actually getting to run outside yesterday I've found myself fantasizing about springtime and sunshine even more, I'm going to start my official spring break count down on Tuesday. My break starts March 5th and I'm going to meet me madre in Florida! CAN. NOT. WAIT.

I woke up this morning feeling pretty good but not amazing. I was expecting to REALLY be hurting from hitting the pavement but it's mostly my back and the outside of my left knee which gives me trouble I'm sure from tight quads (I am a BAD stretcher). Luckily the yoga club at school is starting back up again today, YAY!! So that is where I'll be this afternoon.

Back to the weather, I decided for breakfast I wanted some warm weather themed oats so this is what I came up with

Vanilla, lime, berry sunflower oats!

1/2 cup oats cooked with milk, vanilla whey protein and a key lime tea bag. Caroline over at The Broccoli Hut had cooked her oats in tea before and now I LOVE doing, it's a great way to get fun flavors!

Topped with banana, mixed frozen berries, sunflower butter, ginger, truvia and coconut extract. 

Mango black tea on the side for a little more tropical flare! 

Ahhhhh just like being in the Bahamas... kind of. With my heater on next to me it's close enough, and they sure are delicious! 

I'm also planning on making some milky coffee because I have to walk *AGAIN* to the grocery store. A different one this time, the one I went to yesterday doesn't sell greek yogurt. But that's alright because walking+yoga= my perfect rest day/recovery "workout"!

So agenda for the day,
Contemporary food movements homework
Bio homework
FINALLY watching the office and 30 rock! 

And I will be eating in there as well.

Oh and of course admiring my spring time colored nails which looking at help me get through the blah weather!

How do you make it through gross winters? Do you ever have to go to more than one store to get all you need?
