I woke up this morning feeling considerably better, although I’m still kind of stuffy. I had the perfect sick person breakfast (really, just the perfect breakfast), oats in a jar!!!
This mix contained:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 cup water
- pinch salt
- mashed banana
- big dash cinnamon
- 2 tbsp ground flax seed
- scoop 2% plain Greek yogurt
All spooned into an empty peanut butter jar and topped with a small spoonful of almond butter. I saved the jar, so maybe I’ll have another nut butter experiment this weekend! I also had a cup of chocolate Yerba Mate tea with honey and milk which was delicious!
Lunch was a repeat of yesterday’s wheat berry salad with lemon cumin grilled chicken over baby spinach, plus an unpictured pear. I repeat what I said before… pear season is definitely over. Forgive the recycled picture.
I had a Walnut and Dried Cherry bar for snack this afternoon. I also ran to Starbucks during my break to get a chi tea with raw sugar and skim milk for my sore throat. When I got home, I was feeling pretty good, and the weather was gorgeous, so I went for a four mile run! Stats…
- Distance: 4.00 mi
- Elapsed Time: 39:34
- Avg Pace: 9:53/mi
- Calories: 408 cal
I was so happy with how that run went, especially considering I’m sick. When I got home I had some 2% Greek yogurt with a chopped up orange.
Ok, time to plan dinner. Go outside and take a walk while it’s still beautiful out!
