After talking yesterday about running on the treadmill, I actually got to run outside because I ran a little later than normal…And I disliked just about every step.
I am so routine that running at a different time (we are only talking an hour or so later) threw me off completely. I was hungry, tired, irritable and wishing I was done before I even started. I never found my groove for this run and my upper body felt out of sync with my lower half the entire time.
8 miles later and I was still in a mood…until I saw that Amanda from Run To The Finish included me in her list of Running Blogs To Follow.
There’s a great group of bloggers in her list so make sure you check it out! She seriously made my day by including me and helped me snap out of my weird running jet lag funk 🙂
Anyway, its Wednesday which means it’s time to talk food!
Pre-run oatmeal with banana and coffee. You know the dishwasher needs to be run when I am using the sprinkle ice cream bowls for breakfast.
Post-run three ingredient pancake (with blueberries and peanut butter on top). My flipping skills have returned although I don’t think it was my flipping that was the issue lately — I wasn’t letting the pan warm up enough and then I wasn’t remaining patient for the pancake to cook before flipping.
Lunch on Monday was in the mini meal snacking version.
First slice of peanut butter and jelly on Ezekiel toast with banana around 11:00 am.
Second slice two hours later, this time with peanut butter and diced apple with cinnamon.
Since I didn’t make the planned sweet potato chili Sunday night, I didn’t feel like making it Monday which meant simple roasted sweet potato wedges instead served with roasted vegetables and quinoa.
I also added a sprinkle of Trader Joe’s Fried Onion Pieces because I saw them in my pantry and felt like it.
I have been all about chocolate chips after dinner.
I think that Trader Joe’s semi sweet chocolate chips might just be the best ever. Thoughts?What I Ate Wednesday #wiaw #peanutbutter #oatmeal #chocolatechips #running #fitfluential Click To Tweet
