I used to get so mad when I was working (well, just 2 years in a row) when we didn’t have MLK off as a holiday. Well now I do again! It’s mighty cold out there today, but nice and cozy in our house. My day started before sunrise (but not at 5:00!) with a cup of peppermint liquorice tea. It was pretty good, but not one of my favorites.
I was also really hungry when I got up this morning, probably from a lighter eating day yesterday, so I had some Kashi Heart to Heart with Fiber One and vanilla soy milk before my workout. I heated up the soy milk to make hot cereal!
I REALLY wanted to go on a long run outside today, but at 15* I decided to just keep things indoors. We left for the gym around 8:45. I did 30 minutes on the ET, and then 15 minutes of interval running on the treadmill and was going to call it a day – but I found House Hunters International on my treadmill TV and plugged in my headphones and got hooked on an episode! I finished it off with another 10 minutes of running and some walking. I could probably run a marathon watching TV! 450 kcal burned.
I decided on an oatmeal pancake because I need to make some mini ones for my pre-workout breakfast and figured I should only dirty up one pot. I topped the big one with banana and a tbsp PB:
Had a few apple slices on the side, which got a little of the PB –
And a soy latte made with coffee and about 2.5 oz of steamed soy milk, which tasted kind of funky for some reason??
Breakfast calories were 380 + 110 from cereal = 490.
I got started on the mini pancakes. I was hoping to get 8 out of my 1 cup batter, but I only got 5.5. I’ll have to adjust the amount I pour next time.
I’ve got a few errands I want to run and a few small things to study, but I’m hoping to made a video with dinner tonight! We shall see how it turns out…
