Bourbon Ball Oats!
Don’t worry, I used a really tiny ball
I actually started today with a workout. I was up at 6:30 and on the ET by 7. It was my last day to get in some good machine cardio before I enter the unknown workout realm of traveling, which is usually running intensive. So I did 26 minutes on the ET while I waited for a Stepmill to open up and finished with an unknown time there. Unknown because a lady stepped on my cord and unplugged the machine halfway through so I lost my time. I think I did about 30 minutes total though – I had to finish Women’s Health! Magazines are really a great way to get in 10 more minutes 🙂
THEN, I came home and officially started the day with yoga 🙂 I’m loving doing it daily now, but I know when I’m back in school I won’t be able to do it everyday. But the great thing is that I don’t have class on T/TH this upcoming semester, so I am thinking about making T/TH and Saturdays my yoga days. Sounds like a plan! Today I did the a 20 minute Heart Opening Flow. I DO NOT LIKE WARRIORS!!! Anything with a lunge just makes me cranky. But I still liked this class overall a lot. Finally I ended with 5 Minute Abs, which I purchased yesterday with my 50% off code. The class was almost a little too short – I should have gone with the 8 minutes. And there was nothing special about it – you could easily just do 5 minutes of ab exercises yourself, but it was kind of fun to have someone telling me what to do.
Then I showered.
Then I made my oatmeal!
- 1/3 cup oats, milk, water, frozen/thawed banana (see below) pinch salt
- 1/4 cup GoLean Crunch, stirred in
- 1/2 tbsp ground flax, stirred in
- 1 tsp coconut
- 1 tsp coconut butter
- 1 small bourbon ball, crumbled
- A few walnut pieces
- Spoonful Barney Butter
I really couldn’t taste the bourbon ball that much – I should have added a shot of fresh bourbon 😉
I froze an extra ripe banana a few weeks ago when I had an overflow and since my goal was to make it through Xmas without another grocery store trip, I used it up this morning. It looked kind of gross after thawing in the fridge overnight, but it still tasted good and served its purpose. I didn’t want to add it to the oats frozen because I thought the extra cold might delay the cooking in a negative way. Maybe next time I should do that though.
Fresh out of the freezer and 24 hours later
The rest of morning is PACK PACK PACK!!!
+ Empty Dishwasher
See you for a later lunch!
