I really thought it was Tuesday for the whole first part of our run this morning. Finally I realize there were trash cans around – WEDNESDAY !! Sweeeeetttttt.
I normally fall asleep in about 10 minutes, but thanks to yesterday’s dumb nap it took me almost an hour last night. When I finally did fall asleep, the phone rang! Our house phone never rings and we didn’t wake up in time to get it, so I went down to check the message hoping it wasn’t a family member. Hangup. So that left me wide awake again too.
But when the alarm went off at 5, I was wide awake (thanks again nap!) so I went running . Hope I don’t crash again today! We did about 5+ miles according to my heart rate monitor (I burn about 73-75 kcal per mile so it’s an easy way to track). It was a great run for me, but now my legs are quite tired.
I made an Oatmeal Berry Smoothie . It’s so big I had to overflow into a cup!!
- 1/3 cup prepared banana oatmeal (when I say 1/3 a cup I mean the oat portion before cooking, not the amount I scoop out)
- 1 cup frozen berries
- 4 strawberries
- 3 ice cubes
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tbsp flax
It’s not the best tasting smoothie I’ve ever made (maybe a little freezer burn on our expensive frozen berries!?) but it’s certainly big and will hopefully get me through my Food Comp test and into Legume Lab!! I only packed a nectarine and some crackers because our professor said "you might want to eat some of the legumes that we prepare."
Hasta la vista!
