Tardy for the party….

May 12, 2011

So I’m a little tardy for the party on WIAW….so here it is!

My normal bowl of oats for breakfast…..never will get tired of this combo!
Peanut Flour Paste Snack Time
Lunch was Asparagus, Sweet Potato Pumpkin Mash (plus cinnamon & applesauce), Brown Rice Toast  Protein Oat Cake
1/2 Banana
1/4c. Oats
1 Scoop Protein Powder

Mash up the banana, add the oats and protein powder. Microwave for 1:30 & Top with whatever you like! I chose crofers jam.

Apple pie larabar for some in class snackage
Salad Beast: Romaine, Spinach, Tomatos, Carrots, Chickpeas, Black Eyed Peas, Hummus, Nooch, Soy Sauce

For dessert I had another oat cake, but I added applesauce and chocolate chips to the mix
 It was delish…..
& that’s all for WIAW!

Confession: The reason I didn’t post yesterday, was because I’m in a really sucky mood. I did something to my foot and it hurts….bad. My race is this weekend and I really hope the pain will just go away by then .I took it easy yesterday, and I’m planning on doing the same today, but its frustrating because not being able to work out puts me in a bad mood and gets me into the negative mindset that I don’t like to be in. It’s the part of my brain that picks on myself, the one who says mean things. I think maybe doing some ab work and maybe lifting a few hand weights will cheer me up.

How was your wednesday?

What are you favorite oat toppings?

What are some good ab exercises or lifting exercises that go easy on putting pressure on my foot that I can do?

    Awww girl I’m sorry you’re hurting/in a bad mood… A few days off definitely won’t hrut you if you’re feeling guilty at all and I rpomise there will be other races ❤ The ab workout I do is okay but probably not actually the best one ever it's 8 minute abs, a video on youtube. I like it because if you just tell me to do ab workouts I lose interest verrrry quickly.

    sending your foot healing vibes from the south bay 😉 ❤

    PS are you running the nike 1/2 in the fall?

      Haha, I’ll look it up. Awww thanksss! Yes I am running it! Are you? (p.s. are you running bay to breakers?)

      • May 12, 2011 10:13 pm

        Yes to the nike half, no to bay to breakers coz I didn’t train/haven’t been running much but i may be there anyways because the colleg ething to do is get trashed and walk it… apparently they’re tightening security this year though so idk! not that i’d actually get trashed, but some of my friends were considering going…

      • May 12, 2011 10:31 pm

        Haha all my friends are like “you are actually running it this year?!” last year was screwdrivers for breakfast, so it took like 10 hrs to cross the finish line, haha. Yeah, I heard they are gonna be super strict (although they say that every year) that’s why this year they put a cap on the number of people who run it and I don’t think there are gonna be floats anymore.

        Ohhhhh lets do some training runs together! That would be so much fun:)

    Argh I so know how you feel about your really got me down when mine hurt because exercise is such a good release ad makes you feel better. Definitely rest your foot though – I learnt that the hard way..I tried to ignore the pain and exercised on it and I really regretted it. My injury got worse and lasted a long time which REALLY got me upset.

    Feel better girl! What kind of bread do you buy? It looks good!

    • May 12, 2011 10:34 pm

      It’s the food for life brown rice bread. It’s good but my only complaint is, it’s too tiny!

      • May 14, 2011 5:31 am

        OH! I always buy the millet bread but haven’t tried the brown rice one yet. I’ll give it a shot 🙂 You are right they are little it’s crazy!

    I really wish they could start selling peanut flour in Norway, it looks sooo good!
    My current oatmeal topping of choice is walnuts and goji berries, love this combi!

    • May 12, 2011 10:33 pm

      Norway! That’s so cool. Trader Joe’s has discontinued peanut flour, so now I need to start ordering it online….booo.

    Oh man, my wednesday was horrible. I made really grody cinnamon buns (first recipe that I could ever call a failure. Like, ever. I couldn’t even eat them AND I used the last of my brown rice syrup in/on them. So not worth it) and then I just got really negative and frustrated and stuff. Today was sort of better because I had papaya for breakfast but I haven’t worked out in a few days because I don’t have any contacts left and I refuse to work out with my glasses. If that sounds ridiculous, just know that I feel uncomfortable even when I’m grocery shopping or just walking around in my glasses. I feel really disoriented with them. I’ve also had really bad experiences in the past with working out and glasses, so I generally avoid combining the two whenever possible out of fear that it will put me in an even worse mood. Also, I don’t even have any comfortable shoes I can wear to go for a walk outside AND my bike is out of reach in storage. None of that has been adding to my frustration at all. Nope, not one bit.
    I’ve decided that oats are best kept nice and simple, with a banana, some hemp seeds and some cinnamon on top. By some cinnamon I mean a boatful of cinnamon. Literally. Cinnamon makes my world go round.
