I ran out of almond milk this morning. Tragic. I had just enough for my coffee but I had use the boy’s 2% in my oats. The “dieter” in me cringed at the thought. 2%??? No way. How many calories is that? Fat? I thought to myself you know what? It might be good to have the extra fat and calories, lets see how well it holds you over. So I made it this way:
1/2 old fashioned oats
1 cup 2% milk
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. natural peanut butter
1/2 small banana
1/2 tbsp. Ideal brown sugar blend
I was so full afterwards but I knew it needed to last me a awhile. It was about 7:30am when I ate and it held me over for the entire morning until after noon when I got home from the gym and a quick grocery trip. Usually if I don’t get to the gym by 9:30am I start to get hungry again. This morning we didn’t get there until almost 11am and I wasn’t even slightly hungry.
My workout today was really good. Again, I think this has everything to do with my magic oats. I did some treadmill work that looked like this
0-5 4.3 walk (warm up)
29-30 6.5 <—– yes, again, an entire minute! I may get crazy tomorrow and try 6.8.
30-35 4.3 cool down slowing speed every 1 min
Me = Sweaty Red Faced Mess
Then I did some strength training for my back.

reps 10 8 6 10
weight 45, 60, 60, 45

same 10, 8, 6, 10 method but I didn’t write down my weights. I think I started at 30?

I had to stop by the grocery store for a few things and then we came home for lunch. It was about 12:30 and I was just becoming hungry at this point. Normally I have to have something immediately after my workout and also snack on an apple or something to keep me from inhaling my lunch before I can get it on the plate!
Romaine Lettuce, strawberries, avocado slices, chickpeas, unsalted raw peanuts, baby carrots, pineapple chunks, Colby jack cheese slice (cut up), and light balsamic vinaigrette.
After lunch I had a
Then it was time to go spend the afternoon at the park.
I was able to read a chapter in my book WITHOUT passing out
After 3 hours of non stop jumping, climbing and swinging, Aidan was finally ready to come home. So was I, that sun gave me headache.
We had a snack
I also had an apple and this
Jamie’s Pumpkin Protein Bread with a smear of natural peanut butter
…..actually two of these
I showered and gave Aidan a bath. By this time my headache was full on. All I wanted to do was lay down. Thankfully Jeremy was on his way home.
I didn’t really feel like eating anything so I had more of the protein bread w/PB
I had already taken a few bites

How obnoxiously matchy-match was I today?
Look at the mess of hair I have to deal with every morning
This was a good day. It’s my fault, I refuse to cut his hair.
Those eyes slay me.
I’m excited tomorrow is our “Friday” and we get to go visit some friends in the afternoon. I am NOT excited about the hour of cardio I have planned. Hopefully my magic oats won’t fail me.
