Today is National Love Your Body Day sponsored by the National Organization for Women.
The part of my body I love most is my legs. They have always been shapely, thanks to great calves inherited from my parents (who both have muscular legs too), an early love for exercise and years of soccer. When I was heavier my calf muscles disappeared for a few years, but I am so glad to have them back. <3 There have been times that I’ve wished for long, slender legs, but overall, I love my stocky muscles
Today they went with me on a great morning run. I have Girls on the Run this afternoon, but I went to bed early and woke up wanting that refreshed, energized feeling to start the day. So I went for a really short run around my neighborhood loop. Probably about 2 miles. I’ll finish the run this afternoon
Last night at EarthFare while waiting for the husband to finish cleaning up I studied the bulk food bins and came across three kinds of muesli (basically just rolled oats with stuff pre-mixed in). I picked up this kind called “35% Fruit” with raisins, apples, sunflower seeds, and a few other things. I decided to make a real muesli for breakfast and soaked it overnight in milk.
- 1/3 cup muesli
- 1/3 cup 2% milk
- 1/3 cup TJ’s greek yogurt
- 3 tbsp or so of wheatberries
- 1 banana, slightly microwaved
- 2 tbsp or so of milk to loosen up the mix
- 1/4 cup Kashi Vive (LOVE IT!)
- A few walnuts
It was delicious. I’m not sure the muesli really added much. I might go for a heavier blend with more nuts and stuff next time. This could easily have just been made with rolled oats and raisins, as that’s all I really tasted.
With my new Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chai Tea!
I couldn’t believe the husband was up, showered, and ready to go at 3:15 this morning. He’s such a champ!
I’ve checked my spam folder a few times recently and noticed a few comments that weren’t jibber jabber or porn in there. If you guys ever leave a comment and it doesn’t appear, please send me an email and I’ll check the folder. This happens a lot with links too. Sometimes they go through and sometimes not. Don’t be shy to email me!
Off to get back my Organic test, then study, then GOTR, then Micro, then Pres. Debate, then it’s FALL BREAK!!!
