I started my day with a lovely bowl of oatmeal:
1/2 C oats
2 tsp ground flax
1 TB carob chips
1 TB soy nuts
1/3 C 2% Greek yogurt
1 TB (?) Peanut butter
1 TB (?) Noni juice
Notice the clearance sticker. I saw that it was marked down to $5 from $20 at RiteAid, so I decided to try it. I figured it couldn't hurt, and I'm sure there are some good nutrients in it. It's honestly kind of gross to just mix with water and drink like juice (I tried this!), but with just a little mixed into oatmeal it's not too bad.
Bowl of oats with coffee. Sounds like a painting name. Like "Still life with oatmeal." Hah!
Yesterday I had a similar bowl of oatmeal for breakfast:
Add a fig and banana to today's breakfast and substitute the PB for Sunflower Seed butter and they would have been identical. Meh, sorry that was kind of boring I guess. ;-)
I baby-sat yesterday from 8:30-12:30 and had a large handful of mixed nuts and some of an apple (cut up 3 ways for snack time!). On the drive to the gym I had this bar:
I got a wussy workout in of 30 minutes on the Expresso bikes (my legs are/were sore--in a good way--to the point of failing so biking was sort of a joke!) plus some good ab work in. So now since I've worked out my legs on Sunday and Monday, my arms/upper body on Monday, and my abs yesterday EVERY muscle in my body is sore today! :) I don't actually mind it, I feel great really! I just have no clue what my workout at the gym is going to be today. I'm heading there right after this post, so I'll let you all know.
I came home and ate this bowl of the last of my barley and cabbage/tofu mix. Sorry for the poor picture quality. I also topped it with TJ roasted red pepper hummus. Yes, it was eaten at my computer. Surely I'm not the only one who read blogs/e-mails while eating?
On my drive to teach I had a Luna bar and an apple.

I will leave you with one more Carly Patterson beam routine. There is a sense of calmness about her routine that actually calms ME down just watching it. It surpasses beautiful and goes into the realm of the divine. I'm not even exaggerating. I have no words for how wonderful it is. I hope it moves you as much as it did me.
