Fifty Five & Freezing

It is absolutely freezing in my house right now.  I just checked the temperature outside and it is 55 degrees.  We have definitely entered an new season.  I refuse to turn on my heat this early so let the layering begin. 

Despite being frigid this morning, I was able to get out of bed at my normal hour which happens the be 4:20 – yes, I am a super early riser. 

I went to the gym and did a 6 mile run on the treadmill followed by weights.  The treadmill run warmed me up instantly – one of the benefits of running inside.  I took my sweaty self home and hopped into a piping hot shower – boy did that feel refreshing. 

Time for breakfast – Cinnamon Blueberry Oat bran which warmed me from the inside. 

It was the same concoction that has appeared in my bowl quite often these days – it is just too good to veer away from it. 

1/2 cup oat bran, 1/2 scoop Jay Robb Vanilla Rice Protein, cinnamon, 1 cup frozen blueberries, 1 tablespoon sunflower seed butter and 1 tablespoon pumpkin butter




Lunch was more breakfast foods – egg and cheese, sunflower seed butter and jelly on an english muffin.  I added some fruit to the meal with one of my apples from my picking stash. 






For some veg, I had a summer squash from my sis’s garden. I could definitely tell that it was a fresh one.  The squash from her garden have soft skin and the flesh is not at all mealy.  Home grown goodness! 





Where has the day gone? Is it seriously almost 3 o’clock? 

I hope you are having a great day.

I don't like to confine my workouts to the gym. But, when the weather gets cold, I like to be inside. I do look forward to sweating in the gym after freezing all day though!

A good workout, followed by a piping hot shower, and that bowl of oat bran? Perfect morning if you ask me. ;)
