After this run I did some dynamic stretching which I will talk about in another post because i am a HUGE advocate for this type of stretching over static to loosen your muscles
Breakfast was much needed, and coffee, obviously! I have gone a week without splenda!! This was a goal for myself! I use truvia, I know i know its still artificial but this is HUGE for me NOT having those little yellow packets!!
This is typically what my breakfast looks like when I bring it along with me. I always cook my oatmeal at work in the micro and bring my own from home. they DO have a cafe with acutally what looks like a very extensive 'oatmeal bar' including toppings like coconut, banana pieces, raisins, cranberries, walnuts, almonds, brown sugar. Still, there is something warm and cozy about making my own!
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 truvia packet
- few slices of a nanner
- lots O' Cinnamon
- frozen bluebs and strawberries mixed in at the end
- walnuts for those healthy fats and deliciousness
Snack today (and most days!) was fage greek mixed with cinnamon and a delish gala apple from our apple picking this weekend!!
this fueled me until it was lunch time! I came home and made a lovely, lip smacking salad. I don't know why but even when I am at home, eating at my house I like to make my salads in a tupperware container! Don't ask me why I do this, but I just do! I also have a 'thing' for plastic spoons. I will not eat ice cream or anything frozen off a metal spoon, those utensils always have to be plastic for this foodie!!
Salad made with romaine, yellow pepper, cukes, pomegranate (the BEST part!) grilled chicken, sprouts, walnuts, broccoli
homemade dressing made with the last of my farmers market Cheshire Farm raspberry maple mustard- I even made it in the last of the container to get every bite!!
- last of the mustard
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- some mango chutney from TJ's (almost out!!)
- 1 tsp honey
So after my delish lunch I was ready to go tackle my errands! I was a mad woman all around town! I had to pick up a present for a friend and I decided to go to a local candy store called Indulge. Indulge is a gourmet candy store with more selection that I have EVER seen. They do a tremendous job with gifts too! I chose a beautiful mug and made a custom bag of candy!
Would you Puh-leaseeee look at the selection in this place?? I saw everything from classic gummi worms and gummi bears to chocolate covered cookie dough and gummi coke bottles!
Questions for you: What is YOUR FAVORITE candy? either now or growing up as a kiddie??
Close up of the Jelly Belly selection (sorry I couldn't get this to rotate!!) Don't hurt your neck looking!!
See how pretty they make it!! I just LOVE this mug! Its so colorful and perfect for her :)
Oh I forgot to mention the awesome Protein Oat Bar I made last night! these little guys are similar to the overnight breakfast cookie from fitnessista but I freeze them and just make them for 1 to have as a sweet treat!
- 1/4 c oats
- 1/4 scoop chocolate peanut butter protein powder
- 1/2 tbsp almond butter
- 10 raisins
- few slices mashed nanner
- enough water to make it into the doughy paste
- freeze for about an hour and eat!!
