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.
I was ready for that drink this morning! I kicked butt on my run and was feeling very pleased with myself. 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!
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, 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. I get to pick out an amazing healthy bread from this place located in Portland.
