look whos backkkk
the fabulous bowl of oats 🙂 glad to be back in business! I had the heart healthy 3/4 cup portion of oats today and i don’t really seem to feel the difference than when i use 1/2 cup, so i’m going to go back to using that amount. It keeps me full for about the same amount of time. Mid day snack was puffins! these are too addicting. I go through boxes of these so fast. where was my life before i found these puffs of joy?
During lunch I was finally able to get a run in! AH! first time this week! i feel like since i’ve been getting really interested in yoga, i’ve kind of forgotten about my running. I still have so many running goals for this year so i’m going to keep them going. Running has always been so hard for me, but seeing so many other bloggers success stories, and how they have transformed their running lives, it pushes me to want to get better. The most i’ve ever run is 5 miles, and that was HUGE for me. I think it was a few months ago. In the fall, 3 was a lot for me. Playing a sport is so different from just going out and running. When I played field hockey or lacrosse I wouldn’t really notice the running part, because I was so focused on the actual game. Preseason runs would always kill me, and i was always in the last part of the group. I had always wanted to be a good runner, but i thought maybe it wasn’t in my genes. I started running more once I graduated, and signed up for my first race ever, a 5k in Nov. It’s time to push myself more and i’m ready for the challenge. I just really can’t wait until it starts to get nice out, so I can do my runs outside. I feel like running is so much more enjoyable when you are outside, than indoors on a treadmill. Any running hints or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! thank you 🙂 🙂
After my lunch run, i dug into my turkey, hummus, and spinach wrap and my roasted red pepper and tomato soup.
Before I went to the gym I decided to try a little bit of the Pure Bar that Allison had given me. It was Cherry Cashew flavor, and seemed to look similar to the cashew cookie Larabar. This bar had high hopes because cashew cookie is my FAVORITE flavor of Larabar. The bar looks pretty small, but i took a picture after i took a hunk out of it.
Results:? AMAZING! this bar was so incredibly delicious! I am going to see if i can find some more flavors around here, I don’t know if i’ve ever seen these bars before. It was softer then a larabar, but had the same type of consistency. They are vegan, and contain only organic ingredients. Allison, you are a rockstar at picking out bars! i am in love with this one
I’ll definitely be finishing this bar up as my afternoon snack!
Question: how many snacks do you all eat throughout the day?
I usually have breakfast, a mid day snack, lunch, mid afternoon snack, dinner, and then sometimes a dessert. This seems like a lot. I can’t tell if this is way too much, and I should only have 1 snack during the day? I’m not sure if i actually NEED the snack, or if i’m just used to the snack time. Also, i’m not sure if i need to make my meals a little larger so that i’m not as hungry and i can make it into my next meal? I love all of your advice and if you have any, i would greatly appreciate it!
p.s. I really wanted to thank you all for your wonderful comments when I wrote about my job situation. Having you as a support system is more than anyone could ask for, and I truly appreciate every single one of your kind words. It’s amazing how much of a difference each of you make in my life. Thank you again ❤
