last weekend i had no time to get any of my household stuff done, and this weekend i did it all... so i think i was just a bit overworked. i have decided this week will be a good one. the morning has started off great:
a snack pre-run:
this was good, but i realized after one bite that i wasn't really in the mood for chocolate... this would be better as an afternoon snack. but i didn't feel like going to the trouble of finding something else and wrapping this up, so i finished it.
my run was perfect. i left at 6:45, when it was still pretty dark, but by the time i was 1/2way through the sun was rising. LOVE IT! it seemed pretty easy, too.
i just made the BEST BOWL of oats:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup vanilla soymilk
- 1/2 banana, sliced thinly
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- pinch pumpkin pie spice
- 2 dates, chopped
- 3 caramelized walnuts, broken into pieces
- a ginger-o cookie!, broken up
- a spoonful of pumpkin butter, drizzled over top
- a spoonful of almond buttah
this actually didn't seem like too much . i was hungry from my run, and really, there were just a lot of small add-ins (you probably know this but i have to tell myself this!).
i packed my lunch early this morning, pre-run. here's what i packed:
lunch - sandwich (before closing) made with herbed greens, roasted garlic hummus, tabouli, and orange pepper
to be accompanied by...
for an afternoon snack...
once again, i am super late. here's a preview of the latest crochet project. i am making a placemat! only thing is, this won't be appearing on the blog any time soon because it is for a class i am teaching, so even after i am done with it i won't want to get it dirty until the class is over. also, i am not so sure about the practicality of it... i chose very expensive yarn (because it is free for me from the store... the mat would otherwise cost $20!), and while it is 100% cotton it is also supposed to be handwashed. riiiiiiight. i will probably risk it and throw it in a lingerie bag on gentle cycle. it isn't taking all that long to make so if it falls apart eventually, it won't be that horrible.
off to run a million reports today. ciao!
