Boy, today’s oats were fantastic. They were kind of like a dessert custard because the banana and pear combined with vanilla soy milk made them SO sweet 🙂
I was up at 5 to head to the gym. It was easy getting up today thanks to a regular body clock awakening pre-race on Saturday morning! I think my biking-to-the-gym days are over, at least for early mornings. The husband skipped today, and he’s going to be working early mornings T,W, and TH now. Hopefully I can still bike once a week, but I don’t want to go alone in the dark. Today I did 45 minutes on the ET and lowered my resistance to 13 to lighten the load for my legs. Most of my stiffness is gone, but I still didn’t want to push too hard. Better Homes & Gardens is my favorite magazine to read at the gym!! Just looking at the pretty houses makes me feel happy and secure inside.
Today’s oatmeal was a mix of:
- 1/3 cup oats, vanilla soymilk, water
- 1/4 large pear (added at beginning with banana)
- 1/2 small banana
- Cottage cheese (~1/4 cup)
- Wheatberries (~2 tbsp)
- Pumpkin pie spice
- Vanilla bean paste
- Almond butter
- Sprinkle brown sugar
The husband took it off the heat a little early so it was runnier than usual, which was kind of fun with all these great flavors.
With soymilk green tea –
Off to take a quiz in Organic on benzene reactions, then I have a really fun lunch packed, then it’s lab time.
