I did NOT want to run this morning. Since I haven’t been getting up to workout, I am out of the habit and didn’t feel the urge that I usually do. The alarm went off at 5:30 and it was dark and scary outside and I did not want to go. I thought and debated and reasoned and decided that no matter how much I didn’t want to go then, going at 3-4pm would be much, much worse. I wanted to come home from my day and relax, so I got my but out of bed (after 15 minutes of negotiation) and did 4.2 miles (the husband reluctantly came too – he was a little bit part of the discussion but was leaning toward skipping it).
The result? SO GLAD I WENT!!! And I knew I would be.
I need breakfast to last me a while today so I made oatmeal despite my time crunch to get going. And I have freshly cooked wheatberries that I really wanted to use!!
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup skim
- 1/3 cup water (plus more because I let it sit and it started to burn so I added more to hydrate again)
- 1/4 cup wheatberries
- ~1/2 cup blueberries
- About 4 walnut halves
- A sprinkle of ground flax
- Spoonful peanut butter
= I am stufffed!
I’m off to Hickory, NC for the health fair. Back this afternoon!
