Hi guys!! Busy day coming up. I made it to the gym to start things off on the right foot! (Since my left foot is weaker due to surgery) I had to drive today because the husband was "too sleepy" to go. I really missed biking!! It helps me wake up and the fact that it’s exercise too means I can spend less time at the gym. I did 30 minutes on the Stairmaster (and almost had to get off early due to bad breath next to me but I just closed off my nose and breathed through my mouth only for the last 10 minutes) followed by 16 minutes on the ET and 5 or so of ab work.
I woke up pretty hungry today so I had a snack before I left. The thought of a snack certainly does make a 5am gym appearance more worthwhile! I bought these frozen waffles after they were reviewed in some magazine like 6 months ago. I didn’t even think about the fact that they aren’t whole grain or high fiber. They’re not very good.
But since we don’t have any bread for toast, I thought I’d work on using them up –
I think all of us Southerners are just going through the fall motions and eating our fall foods in hopes that the 90* weather goes away sooner. Although I don’t want to wish too hard , or I’ll end up cold for the next 6 months straight!
So today Pumpkin Oats made a reappearance.
I always start with my banana-oat base because I think the pumpkin really needs the sweetness of the banana (or I’d want to add splenda).
- 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 1% milk, 1/3 water
- 1/2 large banana
- 2 tbsp kamut berries
- Vanilla + salt
- ~1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1/4 cup homemade granola topping
- Drizzle real maple syrup on the top
With English breakfast tea and milk –
