Hot Breakfast, Iced Water

The sun is shining this morning, which always puts me in a great mood. Unfortunately, the sunshine isn't going to last all day so I better take advantage of it now. 

I woke up early enough today that it was still a cool 58 degrees. Plus, with the AC on I wanted a hot breakfast. I made oatbran with half a banana, cinnamon, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. After it cooked, I added 2 chopped dates, sliced almonds, and a little bit of coconut. Great breakfast, I'm stuffed! 

As soon as I was done eating I needed iced water to cool me down. On the agenda today is a busy day of running a few errands, studying, meeting my trainer at 3, running, and getting my bridesmaid dress altered! It's a good thing I was up earlier than usual to fit everything in! Have a lovely day!

Since I'm not able to comment on my own blog for some weird reason
:( I figured I'd write on yours.

OH YEAH! I ate a ton during it :) Ever 3 miles they have rest stops with water, gatorade, and snacks.....the snacks were different each time so it was cool guessing what the next would have! I had an array of things including lots of fruit, triscuits and cheese, oatmeal/raisin cookie, crackers, a fig newton, trail mix...that's about it. And then at the halway point, they had pizza so I had 1 slice of Pepperoni pizza!

Danielle- I wrote about my cleanse here: http://monsappetit.blogspot.com/2008/06/still-recovering.html

It's towards the bottom half of the post. I am still following the cleanse, but I'm being flexible with it right now because I have a race coming up in less than 2 weeks and I need to make sure my body is fueled properly!

Melissa- yum! The food would keep my motivated haha ;)

VG and Ashley- Thanks!
