All Signs Point To…

December 12, 2009

Matt and I had planed on running a 10K this morning, but I woke up super stiff, sore and hungry and Matt had a week’s worth of sleep to catch up on. And it’s 28* out there. A run just didn’t seem to make sense!

[Note, do not do a ton of pull-ups without having done pull-ups in months. My whole trunk has been ripped open and I can’t move my arms!!!]

I let Matt sleep while I came down to an excellent breakfast

Christmas Blend made with a splash of egg nog! Wish I could say it was amazing, but it didn’t taste all that different from milk.

We’re going to shower and head uptown to see our friends cross the finish line for the Thunder Road half and marathon (although we may have missed the halvsies!) Then Xmas shopping, tree shopping (??), a late afternoon 10K, and an Xmas party!

What a nice day ahead! I had a run planned for this morning too, but it’s raining and 44 here… :(

Sleep and food are definitely more important than a morning run! Sad to hear that the eggnog wasn’t that special in your coffee because I’d been contemplating doing the same thing.

I got a sample of that cacao bliss to review and I can’t wait. it sounds so exotic.
It’s super sunny here which makes me want to run but there’s also 4 inches of snow and single digit temperatures. Oh the joys/ifortune of being home and not having my school’s gym.

Sorry to hear the egg nog wasn’t amazing in the coffee. I was wondering that when I saw Tina do it on her blog.
Have a great time Christmas shopping!

Wow, those oats look FABULOUS! I agree that a relaxing morning can sometimes be just what we need to start the weekend! Enjoy your Saturday.

How nice of you to let Matt sleep. I’m sure he appreciated it. :-)

I was supposed to wake up early and do homework, but I also felt like we had the week worth of sleep to catch up on.

Hi Kath!
I know you don’t count calories anymore, but I was just curious to see if you had any idea how many calories your oatmeal usually is?

Have a great Saturday!! :)

Sara,
Most of my oatmeal bowls land around 400 calories – sometimes more if I add a few extra toppings. I think they seem like they’d be a lot more, but I keep the toppings on the scant side (most of the time :) ) so they’re not quite as indulgent as they might look up close in photos.

I love it. I wouldn’t have gone running either. It’s going to hit 78 degrees here in Florida. I know I should be loving it, but it’s that or hotter 300 days of the year and I am OVER IT! :) Enjoy Christmas shopping, we’re going to be working on that today too. Good luck braving the crowds today!

That bowl of oats looks so good, I have to find that Cacao Bliss somewhere! The zebra print bowl makes the meal though :-)

When I used to run, I blew off runs when the temperature was subzero… always. I wasn’t the most dedicated runner, hahaha. Your breakfast looks amazing and delicious and cute all at once in that zebra bowl! The nut butter + cacao bliss are drool-worthy. Mmmm.

There are days you just need to sleep.

I love that bowl by the way! You have the largest variety of bowls I’ve ever seen.

You are the Oatmeal Queen. That’s all I have to say.

Oh girl I don’t blame you…28F is too cold to run it! If it’s that cold I skip it-and hit the gym instead :)

fun filled day ahead! I think sleep would definately win in this situation and look at that breakfast?! reason alone to sleep in and enjoy :)

Wouldn’t it be great to have summer back?! It’s early afternoon and still only has warmed to 26 degrees here in Boston…with the wind chill it feels like 8 deg. Hate it! Really makes running outside not so much fun.

It is sooooo cold, but I’m training for a race so I had to run. I hate dreading running since it’s my fave hobby, but this cold is ridiculous!!

Ouch the description of your arms made me wince a little [sympathy pain? :D ]–hope it gets better soon!

Love how much more loaded your oats are these days :D
And always jealous of all your coffee flavors! I can never find anything in Canada beyond French Vanilla and Hazelnut!

Nothing like a Saturday morning 10K (pshhhhhhh, that you can even run 10K is awesome) I would have skipped it for breakfast and sleep as well!

Your oats look awesome today (not that they don’t always!). I’m craving oats so badly, living out of a hotel at the moment and I can’t make any!!

Iphones not working with gloves SUCKS. I’m dealing with the same issue. I have noticed if the end of my glove is just a little damp I can sometimes make it work without removing the glove. Cutting off the fingertip of a thumb part of the glove is a good idea, Think I might try it!

sounds like a very x-mas theme day. too bad the eggnog in the coffee couldn’t make it even more so!

I love your bowl, Kath….I can’t wait to have my place finished so I can get all my pretty dishes out of storage…seeing your colorful place setting is so refreshing!
