I started this lovely Monday morning off with Day #2, Week #2 of interval training. It looked pretty grey outside, but after consulting the local radar on my weather channel app, I determined I could definitely get 30 minutes in before any rain approached.
Whelp, I was about 15 minutes off on my calculation… Half way through my normal route, a torrential downpour started to erupt from the sky! Running in the rain is actually pretty fun, and I would have kept right on going had I not JUST got a new iPhone to replace the iPhone that suffered water damage last week. So, I threw my iphone in my sports bra to keep it dry and took shelter under a nearby tree for about 15 minutes until the rain let up. Standing under the tree in the rain was actually pretty peaceful and relaxing! I’m sure I looked like a creeper though 🙂
I’m really loving the grilled fruit and nut butter wraps I’ve been making for breakfast. Today, I made one with half of a banana and Smucker’s Organic Peanut Butter atop a Mama Lupe’s low carb tortilla. I wrapped everything up and threw it on the george foreman for about 5 minutes.
(I’ll have to post the pic later.. left the stinkin cord for my old camera at home!)

I was still pretty hungry after B#1, so I decided to overload my overnight oats. Last night, I put 1/2 cup quick oats, 1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze Almond milk, 1 tsp brown sugar, and some cinnamon in a bowl in the fridge. This morning, I overloaded the oats with blueberries, strawberries, the other 1/2 of my breakfast banana, and some Barbara’s Bakery Peanut Butter Puffins for crunch.

After all the carbs at breakfast, I was glad I packed a salad for lunch! Today’s salad consisted of romaine lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber, a sliced up Trader Joe’s Spinach Fontina Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage, with 2tbsp Hidden Valley fat free ranch dressing.
Couldn’t get the flash to go off for the life of me… haha… need to spend some time playing with the camera! 🙂 I’m really liking the Trader Joe’s sausage! I wish I would have picked up more than one kind… oh well, guess I’ll have to go back 😉
