Hi guys! We got back late last night from SF class. Boo In class I was starving and kept dreaming about the toasted pita + PB I was going to make when I got home. But when I got home I wasn’t hungry anymore. Odd. I still felt a little empty so I made a quick snack plate.
I had two prunes, three of the apricots, and that slice of yellow cheddar. There’s also some swiss on the plate but that was for Scott and I didn’t touch it. I also had some pistachios! I love pistachios. YUM! I headed up to bed around 11pm, yuck.
My alarm went off at 6am and holy crap it was dark outside. There was no way I was running in that so I went back to sleep. At 7am it was still crazy dark outside. I got up and took care of Rocky. While outside I saw that it wasn’t even close to being light so I headed back to bed. If I would have stayed up, I would have gotten too hungry and would have been forced to eat some breakfast. I am trying to stick with eating after my runs now, so breakfast before wasn’t an option. I realize that probably sounds strange but for the summer/fall, I try and stick with eating after working out.
I got up at 8:30am and after eating 1/2 a Zbar, was out the door for my run. Today was an easy 2.5 miles with 5-7 sprints added in. I did 7 because I’m an overachiever. Guys this was such a short run! I completed it in 27 minutes and now that’s like nothing. I was done and almost didn’t know what to do with myself. :p I recovered from the shock quickly though. After my CS, I changed into recovery clothes and it was time for breakfast!
Oatbran today! I asked Scott which he wanted and he picked oatbran. Oatbran in my snazzy new bowl. More on those in a future post. My mix-ins were:
- Ground flax
- Vanilla whey protein powder
- 1/2 a banana sliced
- Crushed walnuts
- Some dark chocolate PB
I totally inhaled this bowl and sucked down my coffee very quickly. Coffee was so good this morning! I was going to have a little more but the machine was already shut off and I was afraid it wouldn’t be hot anymore. Nuking it doesn’t taste the same to me.
After breakfast I did some bloggity stuff and some laundry. I knocked some things off my to-do list and then it was time for lunch. Man the morning was flying by!
Lunch was simple, light, and easy. First a salad:
- Sliced almonds
- Sunflower seeds
- Blueberry granola
- Some cubed red delicious
Topped with balsamic and oil. In the middle is an orange and the rest of the apple. And on the side is a slice of multigrain bread with some spicy hummus on top. I can’t get enough of that combo!
After lunch I ran Rocky out for his walk and it was in the 60s. Holy cow I wasn’t prepared for that! It’s cloudy and looks like it’s about to rain any second but the weather is so nice and mild. When we got back, I opened the sliding glass door and some windows in the office. YaY spring!
