Can I be honest about something?

I know I was all jokes about my broken wrist in my last post, but it’s kind of got me feeling in the dumps lately. Yeah, I know it’s a minor injury in the grand scheme of things, but it impacts so much of what I do. I’ve had to alter some of my classes at work when I can’t get extra help – and I’m sure those attending understand, but I feel like I’m not offering the same quality of classes they’re used to. I’ve also lost most of my motivation to go to the gym since I can’t do much there anyways. And also can we talk about what an eyesore my cast is? I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided to choose blue for the colour!

I suppose I feel like a lot of things are just out of my control right now – and I’m sure you fellow control freaks can relate to how much I hate that feeling. But the funny thing is that the more I feel like I don’t have a grasp on my life, the more I lose motivation. Case in point: there’s been a load of laundry sitting in my dryer for a week, I haven’t cleaned the bathroom since who knows when, and I wasted an entire Saturday afternoon napping and taking a bath rather than doing either of these things.

But hey, even if my clean clothes are dwindling and my house is a pig sty, at least I’ve got a handle on breakfast (#priorities, right?). These mango coconut overnight oats are my and John’s latest obsession! Except sub banana for the mango for his bowl because he doesn’t like mango – what a crazy dude. But either way it’s a delicious and healthy breakfast packed with fibre, healthy fats, and protein. Make it ahead of time at night if you have busy mornings or whip it up in the a.m. and let it sit for at least 30 minutes in the fridge if you forgot to make it ahead of time. Then add your toppings (hint: there’s no such thing as too many toppings) and enjoy!

    Ugh I cant imagine what an inconvenience it is :( Hang in there and hopefully the road to recovery isn’t far! And yay for mango!

      Cast is off now! It’s still a little achy, but I’m hoping that’s normal. Thanks for the support Jess! :)

  2. Ah I can’t even imagine how stressful this wrist injury has ben for you! Although I wouldn’t say I’m a control freak, I just hate the feeling of depending on others…even more so for tasks that I once took for granted. Hope you are on the mend. In the meanwhile, nothing like a delish brekkie to brighten things up! Call me a freak but I’m with JZ about subbing in banana instead of mango—> yummy!

      Thanks girl, it’s doing better now! It’s funny how grateful I am for simple things like just taking a shower and washing my hair now that my cast is off haha.

      So good to hear from you Linz! Life has gotten in the way of being able to consistently comment on blogs for me too. But I’ve still been reading yours. Hope you’re having an awesome weekend! :)

  4. I can totally relate – I’m such a type A, must be in control, person! On a side note I really need more mango in my life.

      I ate sooo many mangoes in April because they were on 3 for $5 at Sobeys all month. And I discovered ataulfo mangos are SO much better than regular mangoes!
