To continue my “fruit bowl breakfast” trend of the week, I tried hot oats today!
Cooked on the stove:
1/3 cup oats + 1/4 cup wheat bran + 1 cup water
1/2 mashed banana
Cinnamon + maple syrup
Protein powder (stirred in towards end)
1/2 sliced banana
Handful of Nature’s Path granola
DCD peanut butter
This was delicious – I liked it better than with overnight oats.
But so so filling. I never use bananas in my oats, and for some reason thought it would be a good idea today. The addition of banana and the honeydew? Yeah, I barely ate any of the honeydew, and cut up the rest for later.
I then proceeded to do an hour of strength at home consisting of
Upper body weights
9 minutes ab work
And 40 minutes of foam rolling. I was near to tears. And definitely swore/yelled out a couple times. Damn IT band!
Oh how did my run go yesterday? Thanks for asking 🙂 GREAT!!! I did 4.5 miles in 41:40. And that includes walking times. I was on cloud 9 the rest of the day – just beyond happy. I’d been having a rough couple days, but yesterday’s run just turned my mood 100% around. My knee was a bit stiff, but not bad at all. YAY!!
Since breakfast so late and filling, I had a light snack late afternoon of yogurt, kiwi, & honeydew. Topped with granola (added after the picture) & Crofter’s jam.
For dinner, we hit up a local BBQ joint (Firestones) that has the best BBQ sauce. I got the “Firestone Salad” – chunks of tomato, bell peppers, onions, feta cheese & pinenuts. I added shredded chicken. And lay on the BBQ sauce!
I honestly normally ask for extra containers of the BBQ sauce and come home with 2-4 of them. Yes – BBQ stealer over here. Today I only got 1 😦 Oh well – gives me an excuse to go back soon!
Now we’re taking an easy night in and watching The Lovely Bones.
It’s been a couple weeks since my last flashback, so I thought I’d do another today. But I wasn’t sure on what to flashback on! After looking through my Picasa albums, I came across my cousin’s wedding back in June of 2006.
She had a very small wedding at th Monterey Plaza Hotel.
Siblings. HAHA. So funny – my brother’s hair!
Little sister entertaing herself and playing 🙂
I swear, this is a picture of my sister, not the guy’s butt.
Afterwards, before our drive home, we changed and chilled on the beach for a bit.
LOL How lucky for a 5 year old to just strip and run in the waves 😉
I’ve only been to 2 weddings, and neither was very big! I can’t wait for friends to start getting married 😉 Party!!
