Today was an awesome morning! I got up early and headed out for a walk. Today is a lighter cardio day and I ended up going 5 miles today in a respectable hour and 15 minutes. I feel fantastic!
My IT band has been feeling sooo much better lately. I need to keep up the cross training and not go back to running just yet. This is the point at which I always go back to running because it feels great and then I push it too far and end up hurt again and the cycle continues. I want to keep icing my knees and hip for 15 minutes three times a day (it is helping so much), stretching, and using the foam roller. I always get laxed when I start feeling good not this time.
When I got back I stretched iced and made my oatmeal. I am on a chocolate oats kick. I have never tried it before a month ago and I am hooked. Right now I make it with the following:
- 1/2 C rolled oats
- 1 C water
- dash sea salt (I love red Hawaiian!)
- 2 heaping tsp. coco powder (Hershey’s rocks!)
Cook as normal. I put half away for tomorrow and eat the other half. I add the following:
- 1 TBLSP peanut butter (I still love Jif)
- 1 frozen banana (Cut in quarters lengthwise and then diced, I don’t like slices for some reason.)
- 1 TBLSP peanuts (no salt, dry roast)
It is so good! When its cooking it looks like chocolate no bakes. The aroma is reminiscent of them as well. 🙂
For lunch I plan to have left over Garbanzo soup I made last night and a Goat Cheese Quesadilla that I made with a sprouted tortilla. Fantastic!
I am headed off to the farmers market to see what I can find. Happy Saturday!
Any farmers market finds for you this weekend?
