Grade A. Good night’s sleep. In bed at 9:45 and up at 6:45.

Breakfast: Lucas made me a glass of fresh juice (mostly carrots). I also whipped up a batch of oats-to-go and ate them at work.
Today’s oats:
-1/3 cup steel cut oats
-1 and 1/2 cup water
-3 tbs rolled oats
-1 tbs oat bran
-1 tbs ground flax seed
-2 tbs dried currants
-1 banana, sliced
-1 cup of carrot juice pulp
-2 tbs agave nectar
-a generous sprinkling of cinnamon

Recap from yesterday:

-50 minutes at gym (stretching, abs, arms, legs)
-4.5 mile run home (my first run in over a week. Felt good!)

Mid-afternoon snack: Granola bar
Pre-dinner: A handful of dried currants and a few forkfuls of leftover salad
Dinner: Spinach and mushroom quesadillas….spelt tortillas with spinach, mushrooms, and shredded cheese and Lucas’s homemade salsa. I had 6 triangles and a few swigs of beer.

Green heart:

Dinner: Spinach and mushroom quesadillas. I was having such a fun chat with my sister Jill that I forgot to take pictures. Or maybe it was the cheesy deliciousness of the ‘dillas that had me distracted. Hmm…..and some vino tinto.

Kind of an easy workout. My shoulder is still bothering me, plus it’s cold out. It was nothing or the gym, so I said “gym.” I think I deserve a pat on the back! Right?
5 minutes walking followed by 5 minutes jogging to warm up. Then 2 miles at 8 mph (16 minutes). 5 minute cool down.
10 minutes of abs
10 minutes walking sideways and backwards on the treadmill. (Yeah, I’m that big weirdo on the treadmill)

Two of my four most favorite sisters are over….we’re about to watch 500 Days of Summer. I hear it’s good, so yea!
