Toast with a little PB and Jam!
We were planning to go to the Y and run on the track and finish our workout indoors, but the husband misunderstood the plan and thought we were running around our neighborhood. We spent the whole summer going on 4-5 mile runs early in the morning but once winter hit we were too wimpy to brave the dark and the cold. But it’s late summer here this week, so we decided at the last minute to run in our neighborhood. It’s always fun to do because it takes less time so we’re always home earlier than gym days.
It was a great run! Around 5.2 miles. 440 calories burned.
Banana Nut Oatmeal
The key to making the banana oatmeal is to stir a lot so the banana breaks down and melts into the oats. Or you could mash the banana before adding it (we just slice it thin because it’s easier and doesn’t dirty up a bowl). It was SOOOO GOOD today!!! I added a little maple syrup.
Blueberry coffee (half decaf – we’re trying to switch to 100% decaf but have some caf to use up first!)
Breakfast calories: 580 (including toast)
We were stretching on the floor after our run and I commented that although my stomach is pretty flat when I’m standing, it’s got a nice layer of fat on it when I’m seated. The husband replied with:
“Meh. Everyone has that. You know all the models are airbrushed anyways.”
Funny that he knew that. Smart guy!
Thanks for bringing me back to reality, husband
