Nothing Better

September 10, 2010

There’s nothing better on a cool fall day than a hot, steamy bowl of oats! 🙂

After a chilly run outside this morning (It was 42 degrees outside and 62 degrees in our apartment! I was chilly!) this bowl of oatmeal was just what I needed!In my oatmeal:

1/4 cup old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon oat bran

1/2 banana, sliced

– chia seeds

– agave nectar

– dash of salt

On top:

– almond butter

Homemade Granola

I wish I would have waited about 5 minutes until the sun came up more to take these pictures so they weren’t quite so dark!


For a week and a half, I have been battling some pain in my right arch and it has put a damper on my running. 🙁 I’ve cut back my mileage, taken some days off, but this morning it was still bothering me. So after 1.5 miles, I stopped and walked the rest of the way home. 🙁

I really miss my daily runs, but I’ve tried to enjoy the cross-training and break from running. I’ve enjoyed riding my bike and a little more personal time in the morning. While it is hard to take this break from running, any time I am injured, I am reminded why I keep doing what I love!


Work has been leaving me really drained at the end of the day! It is amazing how much energy it takes to “be on a stage” all day long, which is what I feel like when I’m teaching. That’s a really hard thing for me to do because I am an introverted person, and it forces me to be someone I’m really not.

And now working full time, I am left with very little time to blog, which also makes me sad. I would love to be able to blog twice a day, but I am struggling to blog once a day. I have yet to figure out a good schedule for myself.

Well, that’s enough with my woes, it is time to smile because it is Friday!

    1. i’m still figuring out the time thing too with grad school/blogging/running and everything else! good luck 🙂 and yes, smile cuz it is friday! yay!
