Hello and Happy Tuesday! I started the day with a quick 3 miler. I’m really starting to get antsy about the race, but not in a good way. My stomach is already in knots!
After the run I made oat bran for breakfast. I received a lot of questions about oat bran so here’s the low down.
- is just the outer husk of the oat – and has a lot of fiber (it’s called “bran” hello)
- is similar to Cream of Wheat in texture
- you can cook it in the same way you cook oatmeal
For my breakfast bowl I use: 1/3c oat bran, 1 cup almond milk, banana, stevia, dash of salt and cinnamon. I cooked this in the microwave for 1.5 minutes and stirred.
Then, I added 1/4c pumpkin and a sprinkling of chia seeds – this is totally optional. And cooked until thick.
I can never use a cute cup for my iced coffee because it’s always “To Go”! Ben thought it was funny because this is supposed to be a protein shaker cup. I can shake my coffee, right?After class I stopped by WF for a juice. These have been making me feel good and I need all the help I can get right now.
Subway recently contacted me regarding their Commit to Fit Challenge. The company is encouraging people to make a commitment to getting fit – but each in their own way.
You can enter their Commit to Fit sweepstakes on their Facebook page. The grand prize is up to $26,200 – hmmm I wonder why they picked that number
The company rep encouraged me to make my own “Commit To Fit Challenge” and offered to help support my efforts by sending me up to $100 for the cause. After really thinking about where I am with my health, mental health and fitness I knew it was really time to get serious about going to yoga once a week.
So, I bought a package of classes and am formally committing to attend 1 class a week for the next 10 weeks!Subway also offered to support one of my readers in reaching their own commitment to fitness! The company will send you up to $100 to be applied to the fitness goal of your choice.
- Sign up for that 5K you’ve been thinking about
- Buy a session with a personal trainer
- Try a new exercise class at the gym
