If you are just reading my blog for the first time after seeing my weight loss article on the FRONT PAGE OF WOMEN’S HEALTH MAGAZINE WEBSITE, hello newbies! Yes. This happened.
Just one correction.. I lost 110 pounds, not 90, so just a little editing error! Ha! No biggie.
I am beyond excited that you are reading my blabber and I hope you enjoy my endless pictures of oatmeal, my workouts, iced coffee, my boyfriend and other random NYC happenings. Let’s just dive right into that, shall we?
Last week’s running week was one of my highest in a long time, and I am so grateful with how great it felt. Some high mileage weeks- hell, some LOW mileage weeks- feel not so great, so I like to take a moment and savor the ones that feel this good.
I desperately needed to sleep in this morning so we’ll see if I have the energy to run after work. I got the pictures from the race Saturday and as usual, they are hilarious and hideous.
People who have great race photos.. how do you do it? I swear the photog’s get me as I’m gasping for air and limping. I won’t post the rest because they are SO hideous. Although if you’re really sad you can email me and I will email you them to make you smile. Because they will absolutely crack you up.
Today was an oatmeal for breakfast AND lunch kinda day, because I had 0 energy to grocery shop yesterday after work therefore no time to meal prep.
The place I get my delicious hazelnut soy iced coffee every morning has a delicious oatmeal bar so I decided to let them make me a bowl. Plain oatmeal made with water with banana slices, brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins and sprinkled with granola. I added Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter to make this the best bowl of oatmeal eveeeeeeeeeeer!
Bowl #2 for lunch many hours later. Clearly I’m craving CHOCOLATE big time today. This is my usual base of 1/3 cup oats, cinnamon & chia seeds microwaved up with water and a banana, topped with more hazelnut butter, roasted coconut chips from Trader Joe’s and 1 square of dark mint chocolate. REAL GOOD lunch right there. Lotta carbs. My fav.
The best part of having 2 bowls of oatmeal in a day is feeling completely satisfied til late snack time. I almost always eat a snack around 5:30-6 since I work til almost 7 and don’t get a chance to eat dinner til after 8. Sometimes my stomach is growling by 4 regardless of what I eat for lunch, unless it’s oatmeal. It’s a beautiful thing.
What meal could you eat twice a day?
What is your most filling lunch? Always looking for new ideas!
Do you have any good race photos?
