Today was a day filled with delicious tastes. I was able to get most of everything I was craving into my belly. I call that a success.
I was up around 8 because I’m ready to get back to my early mornings! Breakfast was simple:
I ran 5.5 miles, 2.75 over to my grandma’s for a quick tissue and water break, and then 2.75 back home. It was pretty icy which made my stride awkward, but I think I was running around 10-minute miles. I think I accidentally left my Garmin on while I was at my Grandma’s because it said my third mile was over 14 minutes, so I don’t know my exact time.
After my run, I stretched, showered and threw together a delicious lunch.
- 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
Topped with coconut butter. It may not be the most beautiful smoothie, but that doesn’t matter. The pineapple added a new flavor that I loved. And I always love coconut butter.
Then we came home and watched Jeopardy. I had this snack:
Dinner was ham sandwiches from yesterday’s ham. The nice thing about making a big ham after Christmas is it’s only your family around to eat it. Which means lots of leftovers.
Tonight is another night of winter break, which means we’re hanging out doing nothing and eating dessert. Coconut cake, anyone?
