Good morning guys – Happy Monday!
Well my Mom had to go into work early this morning, so I didn’t have a walk to get me started…but I did have Chocolate Peanut Butter coffee!! Seriously, this stuff is unbelievable. It smells and tastes just like a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup – which happens to be my favorite chocolate candy!
I paired my fabby fab coffee with a fabby fab bowl of Almond Biscotti Oatmeal!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup each oats, skim milk & water
- splash of vanilla & cinnamon
- 1 medium banana
- 1 crumbled almond biscotti
- 2 dried apricots
- Drizzle of sugar-free maple syrup
Oh gosh – the texture of the creamy oats, crunchy biscotti and chewy apricots was awesome!!
This was just what I needed to start my morning off right 😀
For lunch I packed a salad with:
- Mixed greens
- 1 HEWge cucumber
- ~1/2 cup red grapes
- Mozz cheese
I LOVE sweet additions to my salads! Do you like sweet salads?
I also packed a Vanilla Bean yogurt
and a Braeburn apple, natch!
Yesterday I missed my long run – eek! – so today I’m heading out for my seven miler. I’ve updated my training schedule (scroll to the bottom) for week six. I can hardly believe that it’s week six already!!!! My week five was kind of all over the place with replacing runs with bike rides and taking a couple days off. Oh well, as long as I’m active, I’m pretty happy. This week is really ramping up the mileage though, it’s going to be a doozy!
You guys, I miss Mama Mia – I just can’t get over how good it was! My car CD player/radio is busted too so I can’t even listen to the soundtrack on my morning commute, bust! I think I’ll bring it into work to listen on my computer…I’ll be singing show tunes all day!
Alright everybody, let’s escape on this Monday morning shall we? If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world right now – where would you go?
Fueled by my love for Mama Mia (told you I was an obsessed 12 year old) I would go to wonderful, enchanting, exciting Greece! (that’s where the musical/move is set!)
Have a wonderful Monday morning everyone!
