Typically, I’m a morning work-outer, but since my day normally starts pretty early at the gym, I’ve gotten into the habit of working out later or in between clients. Plus, the gym I work at is way nicer than the gym I’ve been going to for years, so I’d much rather enjoy my sweat session in a nice environment. However, today I woke up to an e-mail cancelling my first appointment, so I decided to hit the gym with Joe and get it out of the way.
I ran FOUR miles, which is the most I’ve ran since I had to stop training for the Newport Half. I felt pretty good aside from my calves being extremely tight.
I haven’t been able to get pumpkin oatmeal off of my mind, pumpkin anything really, so I just went with it.
I mixed 1/4 cup oats with an unmeasured amount of almond milk, half a banana, flax meal, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, almond extract, protein powder and pumpkin puree which made for super creamy oatmeal. I found Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter from last year in my fridge. It smelled at tasted fine!? I mean, it’s sugar, honey, and basically a bunch of non-healthy preserved ingredients so I’m sure it’s fine, right? Peanut butter finished the masterpiece.
Now I am just enjoying some coffee while blogging and catching up on blogs (finally!).
Check out that steam action. And yes, I fantasize everyday about Mexico when I look at my desktop.
I have a 2:00 and then nothing until 8:00, so I assume I’ll be hitting up Starbucks during my downtime. Always programming to do though, always.
