Happy Friday Eve! I’m so happy that it’s almost Friday. This hasn’t been a bad week, but it really hasn’t been too spectacular either. Let’s just say tomorrow’s date night will be a great way to wine-down the week. Oh, did I say wine? I meant wind-down the week, but I think you see where this is going…
Today I wanted to share a few things I think I like. I’m not a specialist in these things, but I’m sharing them anyway.
I haven’t tried many different sports bras, and it’s not like I need something fancy, like Lululemon’s popular “Ta-Ta Tamer.” I began using Champion cotton bras back in middle school, and I refuse to try anything different.
The old kind with the circle in the back is hard to find, but I recently scored a deal on Amazon. Woohoo!
I’m no granola junkie. I like it, but I don’t love it. Sure, it’s great fuel… if you’re hiking… the Appalachian Trial… for months. With that said, there’s still one kind I absolutely love.
Nature’s Path Organic Pumpkin Flax Plus Omega 3s Granola: It was love at first bite.
Before this week, I had only tried overnight oats a couple times. I hated them. There’s something about cold, soggy oats that just doesn’t make me jump out of bed in the morning. But then I tried these…
I can eat it right after the gym before I begin my hour-long commute to work. I can prep them at night. I can eat them without a microwave. I can eat them on a train. I can eat them in the rain. These aren’t green eggs & ham; they’re pumpkin overnight oats.
· Ingredients: 1/3 cup oats, ½ can pure pumpkin, 1 TBS chopped walnuts, 1-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1-2 TBS milk (skim, 2%, almond, soy, rice, or maybe even cream)
· Directions: mix together, seal with lid, place in fridge, eat in morning (real complicated stuff here)
Also, just FYI… yesterday’s workout was 50 hard minutes on the bike (RPMS between 80 and 100 and heart rate between 150 and 170 the entire time, except for the beginning when I was getting my heart rate up to 150). I also wanted to do some leg work at home in the evening, but I didn’t have time.
- If you’re an expert or at least slightly knowledgeable in the above categories (ie: granola, sports bra, etc.), let me know if you have different favorite. Fill me in on what I’m missing!
