Rain on the green grass,
and rain on the tree,
Rain on the housetop,
but not on me!
We’ve got an All-American Rainy Day here in Charlotte. Extra motivation to buckle down and memorize the physiology of the human body today!
After a weekend of partying, I was surprised when the husband wanted to get up early and go to the gym before work. Since he was taking Canada to the airport, we got to sleep in a little later and arrived around 6:30. I took it easy on the elliptical since my legs are a little tired from yesterday’s run and ended with a round of upper body weights.
Before I left, I had a Van’s Blueberry frozen waffle with almond butter. I picked these up at EarthFare since frozen waffles make a great pre-workout snack, but silly me didn’t even think about the fact that these aren’t whole grain! I just assumed since EarthFare was selling it it had to be the perfect product. Not that refined grains aren’t perfect, but you know what I mean. But it still tasted great and held me well through my workout (I think adding PB/AB to anything helps with satiety through a workout).
For breakfast, we made a huge batch of oatmeal for Canada. He reads the blog (Hi Canada!!) and said he wouldn’t mind trying our combo. I think he liked it! Trail mix with macadamia-cashew butter and the usual banana, vanilla, milk, etc.
I topped mine with TJ’s Raspberry mix and almond butter -
With coffee. We were all sweating through this breakfast!! It’s almost that time of year where hot coffee + hot oatmeal is too much heat. The husband made an iced coffee this morning. It’s not even that hot either – only in the 60s!
Breakfast today was about 460 kcal, 8 grams fiber and 18 grams protein.
I’m off to study for my Physio exam on Wednesday. Then tonight I’m headed Uptown for an event and to have dinner with the husband, who is working late.
Countdown to our beach trip: 2 days!!
