Happy Wednesday! Another morning has come and gone in a flash. I took my sidekick to the gym for our weekly babysitting session. The kiddies were all great and there were LOTS of them. I find that if the room is really full they can get out of hand but today they all remained tame.
I was up early to get in my workout. Before I left I had a rice cake and strawberry preserves – get a little sugar running through my body.
At the gym I did a 7.35 mile run and some weights – of course it was great. The only way it could have been better was if I was able to do the run outside. Seeing as it is still dark at 5AM when I am ready to run I am keeping it indoors. On the weekends it is much easier for me because I tend to head out a tad bit later (but not much).
For breakfast today I was determined to make something that would last. I have a super fast metabolism and tend to need to eat every 3 hours (sometimes less depending on the day). When I am in the kid’s room I can’t eat and end up leaving with my stomach gnawing at itself. I have to eat my breakfast earlier on Wednesday’s so everything gets all mixed up.
This morning I made a bowl of oats sooooo big that my belly was full, full, full when I was done. I cooked 3/4 cup oatmeal with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 a cup water and 2 tablespoons Hemp protein powder. When it was finished cooking I added a banana. I went with the more rustic look today and just broke the banana into chunks with my fingers (they were clean).
It did a good job staying with me but at 11:30 I was ready for lunch. I am not sure that I can actually stomach enough food to last me till lunch time or should I say noon. Lunch time is different for everyone. I am just going to have to accept that my body needs an AM snack or just eat lunch a little earlier.
My lunch was a gluten free tortilla topped with lettuce, red peppers and left over salmon salad.
I also had some TJ’s Rice Crisps.
And I also had a delicious Jocalat Bar. I have become seriously addicted to Larabars since my gluten free diet started. I could eat a Larabar 3 times a day. They are yummy, gluten free, no sugar added, contain protein, healthy and soy free. I don’t think there is a better bar out there that is suited for my diet.
So that is all for now. The sun is shining but it is cold out so I am not sure what me and my sweet tart are doing for the rest of the day.
Have a great one.
