No weights this week (although I have to say that I look forward to starting them again next week!). It was a beautiful morning, so I ran at home. I tried a different pre run fuel:
Whole grain fig newtons! I haven’t had these in a while, but a training book recommended them as an easy preworkout snack. Yum! They were good in that they didn’t fill my stomach up, and I got some quick energy from them. I then proceeded to jog for 6 miles again! I think I am getting the hang of the longer runs. I need to try one on a day where I have a full breakfast and then run an hour later (whenever I find the time!).
Came back to eat a bowl of oats cooked with a banana and cocoa powder, topped with some peanut butter that I made with cocoa powder. Chocolately delicious breakfast!
I used a really ripe banana. The store sells overripe bananas at a discount and I got a bunch of 8 for 59 cents! I keep them in the freezer and pull them out for cooking.
There was also an awesome sale at the grocery store where bulk pine nuts were 99 cents a pound – regularly $19.99 a pound. What a steal! So we got a big bag of them and I incorporated them into my wrap:
Chicken with feta cheese, spring mix and the pine nuts. It was tasty.
Long day of work today. Sometimes it is very sad doing transcription. There are so many people out there who ignore their doctor’s advice and pay the consequences. Then they have to take so many medications, sometimes 10 or more in a single day! I can’t imagine how they keep those straight.
I was in a fruity mood for dinner. I used this tropical fruit mixture with pinapple, mango, papaya, strawberry protein powder and water.
With baby carrots. It was more like a lunch!
Question for you – do you purchase produce past it’s prime ever at a discount?
