Good morning! I’m in such a good mood — I love my Thursday morning time with daylight :-). I went for a quick little sunrise snow run outside this morning in the 11-degrees-but-feels-like-negative-1 weather (about 2.5 miles) and then came home and did the 20-minute Gentle Hatha #1 from yogadownload.com. Once again, I’m not a yoga person at all, but I really enjoyed this class — such a relaxing and thorough stretch! Total workout stats, including “transition” time: 56 minutes, 281 calories, average heart rate 115, highest heart rate 171.
Breakfast this morning was yet another bowl of crockpot gingerbread spice oats. Only two more servings left after today — sad! With 1/2 cup healthy cream cheese icing, extra powdered ginger, and two cumbled graham sticks:
I could take pictures of oats all day!
I’m currently sipping on some soymilky black tea, and I’ve got class later this morning followed by a group field advisement meeting … but I could actually be home by 3:30 if all goes according to plan! Here’s the lunch I’ll be enjoying during advisement:
You can probably guess, but just in case you’re stumped, the lunch includes 3/4 cup kale and date curry with 1/4 cup cooked brown basmati rice, an orange, and Greek yogurt with chopped apple, chopped banana, and ginger. I’ve got some work homework to finish up when I get home, and then maybe I can get moving on this week’s BSI (I bought spinach yesterday for $2, bringing the week’s grocery total to $33) because competition is fierce and I want to win those chocolates!

Your oatmeal looks delicious! You are brave for getting out there to run this morning the walk from my house to the car was enough to make my fingers almost fall off!
I promise not to harass you everyday between now and the half, but I just had a panic attack – can you wear headphones? I read some hooha once about how races were starting to ban headphones. I would die of boredom. I need to rock out.
Anyway, sorry, I know this is YOUR blog, so let me see… please make me that lunch! I don’t know how to do anything with kale.
Wow, way to go on the morning run! Once it dips past 20 or so is usually my breaking point!
