So I am 3 months into this hair growing thing and let me tell you – I HATE MY HAIR!!! It is really tough to grow in such an extremely short hair style. If you have hair that you are able to pull back into a ponytail then that makes growing out your hair so much easier. Unfortunately, I do not have that option yet - I will get there. Here is how it turned out this morning – at least I was able to tame it so it is not too unruly. Curly hair can have a mind of its own. I will probably throw on one of my many hats if I venture out today. Then I will have hat head – yeah, much better. D likes to tell me how crazy my hair looks when I take off my hat.
I would also like to tell my father-in-law that I love my new sweatshirt. I am sporting an O’Toole University hoodie (my last name), given to me by my in-laws. Everyone in the family got either a sweatshirt or a t-shirt. It is keeping me nice a warm – Thank you!!! And no, Charlie will not be wearing his the same time as me – he thinks that is dorky. I kind of think it is cute – I guess I am a dork.
This morning I was at the gym super early for a lovely workout. I ran 5.5 miles then I did a 1 mile walking hill climb. I ended with some free weights followed by foam rolling.
Breakfast this morning was another bowl of Very Berry Oatmeal.
I prepared it a little differently today. I cooked 1/2 a cup of oatmeal with water on the stove. I added a little cinnamon while it was cooking up. I actually made it a little on the thick and sticky side because after I took it off the heat, I added 1/2 a scoop of Jay Robb Vanilla protein powder that I mixed with about 1/3 of a cup of water. This way the oatmeal was not super runny. It turned out the perfect consistency. I also stirred in a cup of frozen berries before pouring it into the bowl.
I made a lovely topping of fresh strawberries, PB2 and a tablespoon of almond butter.
I am not sure what is on the agenda today. The D Man and I might head to Target. I am in need of new socks. For some reason, mine are getting holes in them. I am not referring to my running socks – I am talking about my everyday ones. I had to throw away one of my favorite pairs yesterday. Time to boogie.
Enjoy your day.
