I’ve been wearing my running shoes…and actually RUNNING.OK, not in that picture. In that picture I’m sitting awkwardly on our front porch [slash] fire escape with my legs in the air, taking a photo of my shoes. But I have been RUNNING y’all! WTH?
*OK, this happened and 2.85 miles, but I pushed through.
I realize for the marathon runners out there, this seems like nothing. But for me, it was crazy talk. As I was too sweaty afterwards to lift weights, I instead rewarded myself with a leisurely stroll on the elliptical during a Man v. Food marathon. [Thankfully, the love I have for Adam Richman will most likely never change.]
And not just any old oats…the most awkward type of oat there is: COLD oats.Mixed up the night before…meaning I was consciously returning to an oatmeal way of life.They weren’t as ugly as I remembered them being (nor were they really a thing of beauty)…and thankfully I recalled that frozen raspberries really made them taste amazing in the summer heat.Topped with an apple and some GoLean Crunch!* I hate to admit it, but…they were actually quite delicious.
*Kashi has trademarked exclamation points. Just in case you were wondering.But contrary to popular belief…they did NOT fill me up better than my yogurt-nut butter combos. Still, when I found these in my pantry……I thought, “Awesome! I’m stocked up for the winter!” WHO AM I????
[I haven't changed THAT much!]
*That I consciously made VEGAN. WTH? Really? Who am I? [Recipe to come.]
…and the Green Chile Chicken Pan-salada I made after that…
…I haven’t turned on the food processor in over a week! [My Reese's Bean-Nut Butter was made two weekends ago, I was just lazy about posting.]My food processor is wondering what is wrong with me.
