It was still raining when I woke up this morning. Something about the rain made it feel okay to have a completely lazy Saturday morning. We started out with a pot of coffee and a Hungry Girl egg mug breakfast.
I added egg beaters, turkey, onion and Laughing Cow garlic & herb cheese to mine. For Pat’s, I added sharp cheddar cheese instead of the LC.
They cooked in the microwave – an easy, no clean-up meal!
Lunch was a lime green – green monster. Today’s green monster was inspired by Iowa Girl Eats.
Into the blender:
- 1.5 cups light vanilla soymilk
- 3 cups spinach
- 2 bananas
- 2 tbsp reduced-fat peanut butter
- 2 tbsp flaxseed
- 1/2 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
This one had an interesting taste. It was very nutty. I ended up adding a packet of Splenda. The mix above made 2 servings, each about 350 calories, and it was very filling. I wanted some extra protein after my run this morning. I did 3.75 miles in 47 minutes. My goal for today was to run the first mile in 10 minutes. When I started back up with running 2 weeks ago, my fastest mile time was 11:06. I finished it today in 9:59 🙂 I also cut another 30 seconds off of my 5k – 36:30. I feel like I’m making good progress on my goal of a 30 minute 5k, but it still feels very far away.
