I went on the most amazing run this morning. 5.33 miles in the neighborhoods around our house, no music, no husband, just running, fast. I really love exercising. In fact, it’s probably my favorite part of the day. Running is my top choice, but having suffered a major foot injury, I know I shouldn’t run more than a few times a week. After running with my cousin in New Jersey, I realized I should work on my speed and set some running goals. I think I am getting faster, and the best way is practice. And I’m sure my patient husband would appreciate a faster pace from me! I also want to run in a few more 5k’s this spring. We always talk ourselves out of them because they are so expensive, but if it’s for a good cause then at least the money is well spent.
I decided to follow a reader’s recommendation and make some mini-oatmeal pancakes to freeze while I made breakfast. They are cute – I hope to have them before the gym in the mornings. Thanks for the tip, Rebecca!
And here’s my average size one for breakfast – topped with banana, walnuts and a touch of maple:
With a side of grapefruit:
And coffee (which I drank while making the pancakes)
All together for about 411 kcal:
Nothing, I repeat, nothing is more frustrating than Internet that doesn’t work. My new laptop is having all kinds of strange issues with it. I tried uninstalling the new security suite I got and got the message “unable to uninstall” with no explanation. UGH! AND my stupid iPod is not coming up on my desktop. What a frustrating morning!
I’ve got to do my stats homework, grocery shop for husband’s meal tonight, wrap his gifts, get ready for the first day of school, and I’m meeting Christy and Maran (my two blog friends!) at 3pm to walk to a coffee shop. I’m trying to pack a lot in and it’s already 12:30! Yikes!! Better get going…
