I do NOT feel well today and I blame it on two things I’m hating right now: alcohol and coffee . I didn’t really have that much wine last night, but I have felt icky since I got up this morning. Coffee sounded appealing so I had a mug – I couldn’t even finish it because I started to feel nauseous and shaky about halfway through. I could barely hold a pencil to do my chemistry! I felt worse WITH coffee than I did going through withdrawal!
Despite the coffee, my bowl of nectarine oatmeal was fantastic! We made it banana oatmeal style but put in a nectarine at the start of cooking. Yum!
I also cooked some Spelt Berries from Bob’s Red Mill yesterday – they’re just like wheatberries but maybe with a very slight different flavor. But the best part is they didn’t have to be soaked. I wonder if I could skip that step with the wheatberries as well, but this package said to just simmer for an hour.
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/2 nectarine (for one portion)
- 1/3 cup milk + water
- 1/4 cup spelt berries
- ~1/2 cup blackberries (freshly picked yesterday!)
Walk –> Run
Around 12:30 I finished chemistry and before moving on to sports nutrition and lunch, I got a craving to stretch my legs . I was planning to go to an afternoon cycle class, but being in a dark room wasn’t that appealing, so I decided to go walking instead. What started as a brisk walk turned into a 4.5 mile run . Perfect example of one of those times when you say "I’m just going to do 20 minutes" and it turns into a great workout. I felt LOADS better afterwards.
I was craving something light and cool so I assembled a yogurt, berry + granola parfait
And had one of the husband’s freshly baked bagels (!!) with PB & J
And I found this Diet Ginger Ale in our fridge that Karen left – thought it would help my queasy stomach some.
Ahhhhhhh T-3 hours to study for this major test tomorrow!!!! And I hope the weather holds up for the symphony.
I gotta give a big shout out to the best husband in the world ! He has done SO many chores this weekend to help me out while I’ve had to focus on studying – grocery shopping, replacing lightbulbs, cleaning the house, laundry, mowing the grass, cooking oatmeal, making bagels, trip to Costco for oats, etc.
