Cereal Monogamist

Lei Chic 5 a.m.: Wake up. Don workout gear. Sweat. Curse Jillian and her damn abs.

6 a.m.: Shower. Catch yourself falling asleep and regain balance before you slip.

7 a.m.: Coffee time (first good moment of the day).

7:15 a.m.: Choke down ultra-fiber cereal . . . and fantasize about cheating on your regular breakfast with a sweet, decadent bowl of Cocoa Puffs. Or slowly, luxuriously picking out all the marshmallows from a bowl of Lucky Charms in front of the TV while you watch reruns . . .

8:15 a.m.: Drive wildly to the new Cereal Remix store in Aiea. You shrug off the idea of oatmeal—too healthy—and your heart skips a beat as you consider 27 cereals. So you pick a topping first, and decide you must have brownies. And chocolate drizzle. And Golden Grahams. And—what the heck—top it off with whole milk.

10:00 a.m.: Call in sick to work. You are sick, love sick for all the tasty treats you’ve been avoiding for months.

11:00 a.m.: Your float on a sugar high to Scrambled at Windward Mall for a crispy lunch. This time, you do a double-cereal special and mix Frosted Flakes and Chex. And decide to get healthy and top it all off with banana and blueberries. That is healthy, right?

12:15 p.m.: You unbutton the top button.

12:45 p.m.: Back at your apartment. Call mom to confess to you may be a cereal killa’.

Cereal Remix, in the Newton Square shopping Center, 98-1247 Kaahumanu Street, Aiea. For selection visit their website. Scrambled, Windward Mall, for more information call 808.235.1143.
