Hello all! I’m all rested from the long/busy event at the museum!
Tomorrow is Election Day (Get out and Vote!) so I have the day off! I’m going in for a half a day anyway (for a random reason that can’t be avoided!) but I still have half a day off. I’ve saved a lot of my errands for tomorrow, including going to the grocery store! Today was spent relaxing, GRE prep, and running!
I bought some coconut butter from Kath’s Halloween Open Sky promotion! I waited for it to arrive for about a week. I was excited to see the package.
I decided to use it in my breakfast!
I don’t have a microwave, so I melted the butter on the stove.
It took me about 10 minutes to melt it!
Twix approved of the coconut butter.
At someone is using the microwave.
I topped my oat bran with the coconut butter.
I also added bananas!
The coconut butter was tasty!! I think I undercooked the oatbran, but otherwise it was great.
Lunch was quick and easy.
A scrambled egg with Laughing Cow on a WW bagel thin. Paired with the last of my spinach mix.
I ran 6 miles in 69 minutes. I have a half marathon on Sunday, so I kept it a little lighter than a normal long run.
I ate a Strawberry Banana Gel at mile 3.
I liked this flavor! The PowerBar Gel seemed to be a little more liquid than the Gu brand. Good, but it was also in a bigger package. It was fine in the Camelbak, but I think it would be annoying carrying it!
Here is a cute picture of my cats.
I think they were cold. They sleep together when they are cold. Or when Phantom is sleeping somewhere Twix wants to sleep. Twix is a little bossy.
I’m trying to get more creative with what I eat this week!
