For some reason, I was super tired this morning! I didn’t wake up for a run like I wanted to. On my way to work this morning I enjoyed a cup of coffee. I usually have a safer option, with a to-go lid and all, but I didn’t want much this morning (I’m trying to cut back! *gasp*) so I figured the half cup would do.
I realized at about 10am, that I may not be able to eat much later in the day. I went to the dentist about a month ago now that I have all my health, dental, & vision insurance with this new job. I knew I had some things to take care of immediately. The first were 4 areas that needed fillings. We scheduled the first 2 for today. I was worried how my mouth would feel afterwards. I enjoyed a Kashi Go Lean Hot Cereal right before I left the office. When I’m at work, this is how I eat any type of oatmeal or cereal.
Classy, I know! I typically like my oatmeal to be more watery than most people. I promise, I found it to be delicious! I had my dentist appt. at 11am, but found myself extremely hungry afterwards (go figure!) and I thought sipping food through a straw is probably my best bet. I opted for Smoothie King! Not gonna lie, sipping through a straw was a little more challenging than I expected with a numb mouth! I kept hitting my teeth with the straw when I would put it in my mouth.
Tonight’s DINNER was actually oatmeal…. I’m in somewhat of a food rut – I’m pretty much just eating what I have on hand (which isn’t much of anything!). I tried to spruce it up a bit though and it turned out pretty good!
- Flax Seed
- Peanut Butter
- A drizzle of Agave Nectar
I guess you could call this mix-matched oatmeal because I just threw what I had on hand in there. Some other great options would be other types of nuts, dried fruit, other additives like wheat germ, greek yogurt, chocolate chips, and gosh… that list could go on and on!
Once my food settled, I chose to do a bike ride for my WORKOUT today. I haven’t ridden my bike since the Tour De Cure race I did on May 10th! It was nice to get back on the trail and enjoy the wind in my face. I was a little sore, so I didn’t push myself really hard, I just enjoyed the ride.
I’m so glad we have these nifty water fountains in the area!! They’re freeze proof too! I forgot to load up some water in my bike before I left the house so I stopped at each one that I passed to stay hydrated! I also love this time of day when the sun sets!
- Any delicious suggestions to get my out of my food rut? (For one person, please!)
- Do you have any of these nifty freeze proof water fountains where you’re at? How do you like them?
