It’s SO windy outside!! I had planned to run first thing this morning, but I was worried I’d get swept up and plunked down in Oz somewhere, so I decided to eat breakfast and do work homework until the howling tapered off a bit.
Today’s breakfast was the opposite of yesterday’s: yogurt ring-around-the-oatmeal.
I had one cup pumpkin pie crockpot oats surrounded by 1/2 cup Greek yogurt and topped with 2 crumbled graham sticks, 1 chopped date, cinnamon, and nutmeg:
The wind was still howling post-digestion, but I decided to suck it up and go out for a quick run anyway. First, I had this mini-snack of a spoonful of yogurt with three Kashi GoLean Crunch! clusters and a drizzle of soymilk:
I did one loop around Prospect Park plus the jog from and to my apartment for a total of 4.1 miles. The wind may have been whipping debris in my face every 2.37 seconds, but the 53 degree sun felt nice :-). Stats: 44 minutes, 339 calories, 145 average heart rate, 163 max. I’ve noticed that my heart rate and amount of calories burned have a been a little lower this week … maybe I’m getting more in shape because of the extra running? But blah, that means I will have to step up the intensity!
When I got home, I put a piece of pumpkin kibbi in the oven to heat for lunch while I did the 20-minute Gentle Hatha #1 yoga download. I know I keep saying it, but this download is such a thorough and relaxing stretch!
Lunch took place immediately upon completion of the yoga:
Along with soymilky chocolate caramel enchantment chai, I had a perfectly heated slice of pumpkin kibbi:
And 1/2 cup immersion-blended mixture of nonfat cottage cheese and Greek yogurt topped with a chopped date and lots of powdered ginger:
I also had half a grapefruit because it thought the yogurt was so pretty and couldn’t stay away:
OK, time to get moving on the rest of today’s list. I’ve got errands, cooking, and more homework to bang out … and it’s already 1:00! Are you making progress on YOUR list today?
