I am writing this last night!!!
[Insert morning run commentary here]
We set the alarm for 6a but didn’t actually get out the door until 7 thanks to several snoozes and general lethargy. But once we were going, it was good. Just over 5 miles of honeysuckle and bacon smells! It wasn’t my fastest run but it was slow and steady.
Do any of you have trouble with your Garmin loading satellites? It took mine 10 WHOLE MINUTES to turn on and we were too impatient so we just left and it missed the first half mile or so. Guess I just need to turn it on well before I’m ready to go. Guf.
[/end Saturday commentary]
Today I am headed to Hillsborough to spend the day with my mom, attend a town cookout, and then in the morning we are going to see OPRAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, technically, we’re going to Duke University’s graduation, where Gail’s son is graduating and Oprah is speaking. Mom and I are huge Oprah fans, and I thought it would be a fun way to spend Mother’s Day.
Matt is heading back to Charleston for a bachelor party!!
I order to get to Hillsborough in time for shopping and lunch, I wanted to leave by 8. I also wanted to squeeze in a workout, so I had everything prepared the night before, including breakfast and this post!
I made us each a smoothie to take on the road –
For two servings this contained:
- 1/2 block silken tofu
- 1/3 cup raw oats
- 1.5 bananas
- 1/2 cup chopped mango
- 1.5 cups milk
- 2 tbsp flax
- 1/2 tbsp honey
- 5 ice cubes
Put in fridge to store overnight. Stir in morning.
I’ve got this for a second breakfast if I need it –
Can’t wait to see Lillian too!
