No, I didn’t have something different for breakfast today. But according to Marge Simpson in last night’s episode, oats are also known as Texas Caviar 😎
Up at 5 this morning to head to the gym. I had about 1/3 of a leftover whole wheat biscuit for a pre-workout snack topped with a bit of jam. It definitely wasn’t as good as yesterday 🙁
30 minutes Stairmaster, 15 on the stat. bike, and 15 abs and stretching. I did the tear-out booklet abs workout from Women’s Health. It was hard – a little too hard. I hate it when ab exercises quickly cross the threshold from “If I do 5 more I’ll feel the burn big time!” to “I can’t even hold this pose in proper form it’s so hard, much less feel a burn.” But I do feel like I got a decent ab workout.
I wanted Classic Kath Rolled Oats this morning, so that’s what I had! They tasted so. good.
Rolled oats made with 1/2 water, 1/2 milk, 1/2 a banana, plus cinnamon, flax, vanilla, a touch of brown sugar, toasted walnuts and almond butter. I added a splash of hemp milk at the end, but really all it did was reduce the temperature since it was cold! Guess I’ll save that for cereal and smoothies. (I’m planning a fresh pineapple-vanilla hemp milk smoothie with some of our leftover pineapple for either this afternoon or tomorrow!)
With coffee and a splash more skim milk –
