I’d like to say that I’m getting better at not having breakfast for multiple meals a day, but that would be a lie. I mean, why ruin it when you’ve got something good going on?
Scratch that. Something great.
Breakfast is GREAT.
Oh, also, I’ve decided I’m doing 100 squats every day of September. One of my girlfriends accidentally grabbed my butt one night we were out and commented on how squishy it was.
Call it the result of sitting on my ass for almost a year but I was not pleased by that comment. She insisted it was a compliment but the damage was done. Not. Pleased. Sooooo here’s to a sore September!
Last night I stayed up way past my bedtime watching my new-found favorite show. My mom has been telling me for weeks to start but being the little rebel I am, I held out as long as I could. Ugh why are moms always right?
Being up until almost 3am watching tv does NOT coincide well with a 6:30am alarm to run, so I did what I do best: I hit snooze.
One egg, 1/3 cup egg whites, green peppers, salsa, 2% cheddar cheese, onion powder and red pepper flakes. 1/3 an avocado on the side. Plus coffee (is that even necessary to mention?)
After breakfast I did lots of work on the blog, caught up on all your Labor Day Weekends, and watched The Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda. Love those two. It was a fun few hours!
Around noon I set out for a midday run, which, I knew from the beginning was going to be miserable. I literally felt like I was lifting up tree trunks with every step during that miserable, 90% humidity but I got those four miles done. No pictures because my Garmin is broken and it’s either that or my face and you don’t want to see the face of a midday summer runner. It wasn’t pretty. But it happened!
I had 45 minutes between the end of my run and the time I had to leave for work so I had a quick mini-meal (aka second breakfast. I’m like a hobbit).
Yoplait berry smoothie pack + Chobani plain greek yogurt + almond milk. A piece of banana bread + chocolate chips on the side.
During my break at work I snacked on some overnight oats. See I told you I have a breakfast obsession!
If there’s one thing that cold oatmeal isn’t, it’s photogenic. Delicious mix nonetheless: oats, chia seeds, sliced banana, cinnamon, almond milk and chunky peanut butter.
After a hella slow shift at work I finally got home just in time for the late night showing of Modern Family and a bulked up bowl of pasta.
Whole wheat penne + marinara + roasted broccoli + Parmesan.
So, at the end of the day, I ran, worked at a job I love, and ate lots of good food. I didn’t save any babies or go skydiving or anything, but I also didn’t roll an ankle or choke on a noodle so things are A-okay.
