The day began on the elliptical:
This is actually yesterday's picture. I've unpacked a couple of boxes since then so it's not quite so messy.
Today as I was doing this I was reading my Women's Running Magazines. I have 2 that I haven't read yet and decided to read them while ellipted this morning. I used to devour magazines at an alarming rate. I would read everything, Weight Watchers, Running, Women's Running, Triathlon, Clean Eating, Fit, Women's Health, etc.. I would read them all. Last year I stopped reading them because I felt they were not helping me. I would get conflicting information from them and I felt that I wasn't sticking to anything because every time I read a magazine I'd try something new. But reading these this morning I found myself inspired and motivated. I'm thinking that magazines may provide a constant source of motivation for those times when mine lags. I found stories of women who weighed 260 lbs, lost the weight and are now personal trainers....I'm thinking it's time to go back to magazines.
Anyway, after the elliptical it was time for the world's greatest breakfast:
The way I make it is like this:
1/4 c. steel cut oatmeal
1/2 c. almond milk
1 scoop protein powder
When done add:
1/2 container of Fage yogurt
1/2 honey with the Fage
Eat with 1/2 a fruit.
This clocks in right around 300ish calories and is absolutely perfect. I am satisfied but not stuffed. I have eaten carbs, protein, and a little fat. Perfect. And it holds me through to lunch no problem.
Okay, off to wash the car and get ready to go shopping :)
