Atypical

June 15, 2011

Good raspberry morning!

IMG_1305Blog-2

I was up running by 7, per usual. I guess turning running into a habit was really all I needed. I no longer wake up famished and ready to dive into a bowl of oats. I wake up EXCITED about my run. So so weird, and so not me!

But I’m enjoying it while I can! I ran 4.5 miles today on a different route near the UVA grounds. Today’s route was HILLY! One thing I love about my usual 4 miler through my neighborhood is that except for 2-3 big ones, it’s relatively flat. Today’s run was not, and it wore me out!

I survived with a slightly slower pace and one walking break up a mountain.

Back to some rasp in a jar!

Overnight Oats:

  • 1/3 cup GH oatmeal mix
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 whole small banana

–> all stirred together and overnight in the fridge

This AM:

  • Groovy Granola layer
  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • A tsp of peanut butter hidden somewhere in there

Also atypical of me: I’m pumped to go in to work!!! Perhaps a cup of coffee will be nice when I get there :) WE NOW SERVE ICED COFFEE!!

That looks AMAZING! I love the berries.

Just curious, what time do you usually go to sleep? Do you need a full 8 hours to be able to get up and run?

Reply

2 KathEats June 15, 2011 at 7:57 am

Yes, I must have 7.5 hours but I aim for 8-8.5.

I went to bed at 10:30 and got up at 6:26. I usually count 8 hours and set my alarm – so if I’m in bed at 11 I set it for 7. 9:45 I’d set it for 6. When we opened the bakery though I got less and it was bad!

Blackberries are my least favorite berry.. I mean.. I think they are still yummy, but I prefer blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. I was think thinking how there are always a MILLION more blackberries in my berry medlies then anyother other berry!

Your breakfast looks delicious! I’ve been having overnight oats more and more now that it is getting so warm outside.

Enjoy that cup of coffee!

I need to get Mason jars asap! They are so multi-function and well, just make breakfast look pretty!

11 Cait's Plate June 15, 2011 at 8:06 am

Yay for iced coffee! Also, I totally know how shocking it is to suddenly be a morning runner when you’re usually not! I go in and out of the routine (currently out due to injury :( ) but it’s always amazing the transition from when you first start doing it to when it’s more of a habit. Glad it’s working out for you and keep it up! (I’m running variously through ya ;) )

Hooray for iced coffee!!
Hopefully you are cold-brewing your iced coffee… right, right? (Don’t mind me – I’m a coffee snob. It’s what a couple of years running a coffee shop will do to ya!).

The berries are beautiful!

In order to start making running a habit in the mornings, I have to actually run ONCE before breakfast. Tomorrow, I’ll really try haha.

I woke up late this morning and didn’t have a chance to run before work :(

Do you eat anything before running in the morning?

I eat a date almost every morning and drink some water. The date helps so much!

is this how you trained your tummy not to be famished when you wake up? Because I miss my peaceful runs in the morning but I also am starving when I wake up….

Razzies!! yeaha I love those on me overnight oats :) I treasure them when I get them b/c they are soo dang expensive sometimes!!

I’ve recently started an internship and have to get up at 5am each morning to make the 2+ hour commute. Making it a “habit” is what makes each day easier and easier and more routine, like your morning running.

Hope you have a great day at the bakery! I’m sure people are starting to get low on their weekend purchases ;)

I can’t decide if I like raspberries! The ironic part is that I live all other berries and raspberry-flavoured foods…maybe it’s a texture thing!

I am loving morning runs too! Before food’s sitting in my stomach. It starts my day off so well and is a great way to “loosen up” and feel accomplished! It’s weird that I feel more energetic bolting out of bed for a run then when I wait till later in the day. Psychological maybe?
The berries look so fuzzy in that first picture — YUM! Enjoy your iced coffee! I love that you’re serving it. Hot coffee has zero appeal for me in summer.

Raspberries look delish! Every time I bring home a pint, they disappear within hours because of the boyfriend. I’m thinking a secret stash is in order.

Hey! It was so fun chatting yesterday at the bakery! I ended up frying a couple eggs like you suggested, I put them over some toasted Cheddar Garlic and topped it off with some salsa! It was a huge hit with the BF, kind of like a savory breakfast-for-dinner :) I can’t wait to come up with other meals using CG this week too!

Oh, yum. Your breakfast has me wanting to venture to my nearest pick-your-own orchard. And your run has me wanting to seriously move my legs on my lunch break. I’ll at least be parking my car far away from the restaurant I’m getting takeout from to help fill my craving!

Hey Kath! Wondering what your thoughts are on Veggie Washes? A friend raves about this one http://www.veggie-wash.com/ but I’m not sure I’m convinced! Curious what your opinion might be here :)

57 KathEats June 15, 2011 at 11:28 am

I just use water to rinse mine. My dad has always said that water should get rid of most of what’s on them. I’m not one to pay extra for fancy sprays..

Reply

58 Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey June 15, 2011 at 12:11 pm

I use that brand, and love it. I’ve used it for years. I can visibly see the difference, so hopefully it’s doing something!
If you get the “refill” size, it’s not a bad ‘cost per use’ kind of thing. The refill lasts quite a while.

Good job getting your body to adjust! My body does the same thing; if I work out a specific time long enough, it craves to workout at that time! Last summer it was 7 AM. In the school year it was 4 PM. Now this summer I’m sitting happy at about 11 AM! Haha, an odd time, I know, but I have that luxury; no school and I’m unemployed.
