Sorry for the late post – I was waiting on the Oatmeal Video to upload and we had some complications and then I got wrapped up in Stats (I’ve done all the lessons through mid-March!!!!) and then it was lunchtime!!!
Got up early this morning and had a cup of tea with the sunrise –
After a quick assessment of the weather forecast and my daily to-do list, I decided to head out on my run and eat breakfast second rather than eat and run mid-morning. I had half a banana before I left and ran about 5.5 miles. I was on my own today, so I took my iPod and actually loaded a new playlist on. I have quite an eclectic taste in music. Here were some of the run’s highlights:
- Semi-Charmed Life, Third Eye Blind (right back to 9th grade!)
- Freebird (the long version – perfect for picking up the pace!)
- Pachelbel’s Canon in D for Three Trumpets (what I walked down the aisle to at the wedding!)
- I am the Starlight from the musical Starlight Express
- Big Girls Don’t Cry (Fergie’s version – not the Four Seasons oldie!)
- Everytime We Touch, Cascada
- Goodbye My Lover, James Blunt
- Not Ready to Make Nice, Dixie Chicks
- You’re Beautiful – the dance version
- I’ve Got Rhythm
- Amarillo Sky, Jason Aldeen
Came back, showered and had a huge bowl of oats!
Plus coffee made with 1 tbsp Nesquik and 1 oz skim milk. GREAT combo!!!
No sunshine this morning
Breakfast was about 480 kcal, 9 grams fiber, 19 grams protein.
After a few hours of Stats (did I mention I’m done until mid-MARCH!!?!? This unit is much easier than the last. It’s all reading graphs and stuff and mean, median and mode – so easy! I flew through 5 assignments!), I made lunch around 1pm. I wasn’t really in the mood for much. I really wanted a thick soup but I didn’t feel like making one, plus the husband made potato buns so I felt the need to have one!
I settled on PB and J on a potato bun as my “main course” –
Plus pumpkin yogurt and some TJ’s high fiber cereal (my “go-to” when I want to feel full!)
Plus an orange for my fruit –
Plus some broccoli stalks leftover from last night’s dinner with 2 tbsp Wild Garden Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus Dip. I was NOT in the mood for these and forced down half. I gave the rest to the husband.
Plus some hot tea with a splash of skim –
Note the doilies made another appearance as coasters!
Lunch was about 550 kcal, 15 grams fiber, and 22 grams protein.
The husband is out gardening. I really wanted to garden today, but the weather is absolutely dreadful and I only like gardening when it’s warm and the sun is out! I read the first 30 pages of Eat, Pray, Love last night and really like it so far, so I will probably spend my afternoon reading and doing research for Cultural Foods.
See you for a fun dinner!
