-1 cup water
-1/2 cup Quaker oats
-1/2 mashed banana
-1/4 of a chopped mango
-1 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
This turned into one hearty bowl!! I love the texture the coconut gives the oats. It’s like there’s little crunchies in every bite!
My morning was very uneventful. I snacked on some medjool dates before my treadmill run. I wasn’t really feeling hungry at all, but wanted something in my tummy. I ate 3, but 2 were camera shy!!
I was a bird brain this morning and left my HRM at home. DUH! I had a really good run, though. I hammered out 5.06 miles (8.15 kilometers) in 50 minutes. The treadmill said I burned 452 calories which is pretty close to what my HRM said last week on a run that was the same length. At the gym today there were 2 people to my left and one to my right. Each one came in a good half hour after me and hopped on a machine. One of these 3 people was wearing PERFUME while huffing it out. Thank God I only had 20 minutes left because by the time I was done I was ready to puke. What a nasty, cloying smell to have to put up with while working out! Just had to vent……
Lunch was a serving of my bean chili from the vat that I made a few weeks ago!
This meal really does a good job of filling me up for the afternoon. This mug holds 3 cups of water so I’m guessing there was about 2 cups of deliciousness in there!
My afternoon was much the same as my morning….slow. I did give me the opportunity to monitor my bid for goodies at Meghann’s Bake Sale! :) I’ve got my fingers crossed! I had the nibbles later in the day so I snacked on some grapes. Ever since that pizza Saturday night, my body has really been craving fruit.
I was done work at 4pm today and wasn't really hungry at that time but I knew dinner was still 3.5 hrs away and I needed something to tie me over. I had brought 1/2 of a Maple Pecan Clif Bar to work to eat before my run, so I decided to dig into that.
OMG. I haven't tasted anything this good in a very long time! Hungry or not, I had no problem getting this down! I have turned into a HUGE Clif Bar fan. I may never buy another Lara Bar again!!!!
Pilate's was awesome tonight. We worked on our core and I think I'll have some sore abs in the morning! Actually, when this session is done I'd like to enroll in the core Pilate's class.
Supper was an Arnold Thin with Sabra hummus, smoked cheddar cheese and a 1/3 cup of egg whites. I also had a salad on the side with some Bountifuls berry delight dressing drizzled on top.
My sweet end was an energy bar. There's only one left from the batch and my hubby has claimed it.
And then I went back for one of my Valentine's Day cupcakes. It's the first whole one I've eaten and it was SO good!!!
Well, I'm off to do my nightly chores. I hear the kids fighting, too, so I should go break that up before something gets broken. Ah, the joys! And just to complete my night, the litter boxes need to be cleaned. Jealous, aren't ya? :)
Bye for now!!
