Now, here is the post that is a little more current & that I WILL finish this time 🙂
This is my jam!
11 mile run done & done. I sat there on the couch debating whether I wanted to run (deep down I knew I did, since I haven’t since Thursday – shame on me, shame on me), and I finally decided that the miles wouldn’t run themself. So, I geared up and ran. And it was glorious! It was pretty uneventful – even paced long run, hydrated with Nuun after, and had my breakfast. My favourite part of the day!
So there was a travesty in the kitchen today, and that was zero oatmeal to be found. Or rather, zero large flake oats to be found. I am not an instant oats gal whatsoever. It doesn’t stick to your ribs or make you feel as full as steel cut oats or large flake oats (my personal favourite). However, I decided to make a quinoa breakfast bowl. Basically, I cooked quinoa with almond and milk and cinnamon, similar to that of my usual oatmeal, and added in peanut butter and banana. It was delicious! Quinoa is super versatile, so if you haven’t tried it in a breakfast dish, you definitely did!
Then, it was time to get ready for a baby shower! Hooray!
While I waited for my sister to get ready, I hung out in the Black Stallion (aka my Jeep) and took a mandatory selfy or two (or three, or four…). Voila:
Rockin’ the sunshine ‘stache 😉 Anyway, to the cuteness:
Since my mom is an avid Pinterest user, you bet she found this creation online and had to replicate it herself. I admit, I may have been hovering over her while she cut up the fruit, and I definitely had my fair share at the shower. What? If I’m not having large amounts of candy anymore for a while (oh yeah, I am on a candy hiatus since I have had processed sugar overload), I gotta satisfy the sweet tooth somehow!
And here is the beautiful new mama & Hudson! Congratulations!
In other news, I finally found my book of marathon training. I thought I had lost it, but apparently I left it in my dad’s truck last month. Well, now I have some reading to catch up on!
Hopefully your weekend was fantastic! I will try to blog a bit more regularly since I am slackin’ on that, or so it feels like. I am also icing my legs right now, so points for me I guess that I am back on the icing train.
See ya later!
