After all the excitement from last night’s election, I didn’t get to bed til almost 6 in the morning. Seriously. It’s a good thing I don’t have work or go to school so I got to sleep in. Got up after lunch, did the 30DS and went out for a 30 minute run. I had a very yummy breakfast of yogurt + granola + bananas and one egg + slice of cheddar + whole wheat english muffin. Last night I was hyper and decided to experiment with oatmeal. I learned how to cook Irish Oats (aka Steel Cut Oats)! Soooo goood. The first batch was a fail. I tried to make a pumpkin pie-ish oatmeal, and all I could taste was the damn pumpkin. Gross. I made the second batch much simpler and added just cinnamon, brown sugar, blueberries, and some granola. OMG.. best oatmeal ever! The texture and sweetness was just right. The Irish Oats does take quite a while to cook, about 30 minutes, but it was well worth the wait. I guess I’ll just make a big batch for the week and reheat it.
Good things: The run was so good today. I felt so strong and free. My legs felt so light and I think I’m finding the right stride for me. I’m also slowly but surely getting through the 2nd cardio set in 30DS. It’s still hard, but I’m trying to push it a little at a time.
Not so good things: Ate 4 slices of pizza last night. At least it was homemade and it was a spinach + garlic + mushroom pizza. Plus I ate it with carrot sticks so how bad could it be right?
