September 30th, 2008: Breakfast

Morning guys! I went to bed early (10pm!!) and I overslept this morning. :o I don’t know what happened but my alarm didn’t wake me up. It was set and I checked it before bed but heard nothing. I even had to turn it off this morning so I have no idea what happened there. I got up at 7:10, so not terribly late but later than I wanted.

It was cool this morning because it had rained during the night. Not cool enough that I needed my little blue shirt though for my run. I ran a different route this morning and I also incorporated some sprints. Well not full out running as fast as I can sprints, but picking up my speed for a distance and then going back to a pace run and alternating like that the entire time. I think I did five total “sprints” bumping my HR up to the 170s. I don’t know the total distance I ran this morning but was out for about 20 minutes and my total cals burned during this run are my most yet, 253! Wooo! I was getting grumpy and complaining about Google maps not having the roads listed that I’m running on and Scott said we could drive it so I would know the total milage. :p I’m thinking this might be a good reason to the get the Nike+iPod thingie. Would you agree? I thought so. ;)

Yum!

Yum!

I was ready for that drink this morning! I kicked butt on my run and was feeling very pleased with myself. :D Then it was back out the door with Rocky and again another high for me, I did the most calories on this walk too, 196! Woo! Normally it’s in the 150s range but for some reason it was bumped up today. I don’t care, I’ll take it!

It was chilly during the walk and I should have worn a jacket but decided against it and fully regretted that decision. I knew I wanted oats this morning, I missed you oats! And I loaded mine up!

Loaded

Loaded

I had the regular mix of:

  • 3/4 cup of vanilla soymilk
  • 1/2 cup of quick oats
  • 1 mashed banana

And today I added a small pinch of cinnamon sugar and salt. Then on top was:

  • Dried cranberries
  • Sunflower and pumpkin seeds (a wee bit)
  • Some BN granola
  • Some yogurt

Yum! I gave myself a little bit more today and left Scott with slightly more than 1/4. I wanted to see if more would keep me fuller longer and Scott doesn’t eat much for breakfast so I knew him having less was no big deal. So far it’s seemed to work, I’m doing okay hunger wise.

Today I have grand plans of kicking things into gear and getting more organized around the HQ. I also have some bloggy stuff I need to get done and other very boring tasks. See you later!

Oh!  And happy news,  :swingdance:  Andrea and Erin hosted this round of Blogger Secret Ingredient and the ingredient was apples.  I entered my Apple Quesadillas and the recipe got picked.  :blush:  I get to pick out an amazing healthy bread from this place located in Portland.  :D

  1. :lol: I totally do not, I would have to get one. :blush: There have been talks of an iPhone but I don’t really need that advanced of a phone so I’m flip-flopping between the two.
