Oatmeal, Yoga and Cookies

My cat knocked over a half full paint can in the wash closet and I have a massive mess to clean up, so this is going to be short and sweet Sad smile

I woke up thinking about food so I wanted a stick-to-your-ribs breakfast. Oatmeal was the natural choice. In the mix: banana, oatmeal, chia seeds, salt, cinnamon, almond milk. Toppings: cereal and almond butter


I think I prefer oatmeal as an afternoon snack (it’s been too long since I’ve done that), but I’m not in love with it for breakfast unless it’s cooked by someone else. Random. But, if I cook oatmeal for Ben I want to eat it.


After breakfast I went to yoga to s-t-r-e-t-c-h my muscles. I don’t spend enough time stretching and I want to bounce back fast from the half marathon yesterday.

I picked up some groceries from TJ’s post yoga. I got these for Ben’s lunches, but ended up getting into them on the way home. They’re too good!


Lunch was spaghetti squash and salad.IMG_3999

Ben tried the spaghetti squash yesterday and thought it was the weirdest thing. He yelled, “That’s not spaghetti!!!” and I couldn’t stop laughing.

I added a chopped veggie burger for protein.


We still have those homemade chocolate chip cookies and I had 2 for dessert. I wish I could avoid them because I think Ben doubled the butter in the recipe (based on how much butter was left after my trip!).

    ugh you have to clean paint? I’m sorry! That sucks!

    I want homemade chocolate chip cookies. I just know that once I start eating them, I won’t be able to stop!

    Mini goals: Strength training 2x this week. Run 4x this week. Do my homework instead of reading blogs all day. :)

    “That’s not spaghetti!!” LOL I’m dying over here! That’s exactly what my husband would say! He would not be pleased with me.

    I meant to comment on the original post, but wanted to tell you congrats on the half marathon. Your running recaps are one of the many reasons I read your blog.

    I would love to know how you cooked the spaghetti squash? I have been wanting to try it so bad! and the easiest way to cook tofu!
    I’m a newbie to trying the healthy eating and I love your blog!

    The cat was obviously punishing you for some unknown misdeed. Did change food? 😉

    My Monday mini-goals: 2 yoga days (20 minutes counts!) and three good runs (3+ miles); plan meals for the week so I don’t end up eating too much frozen pizza!

    I’m loving my gluten-free oats. I had no idea what I was going to eat when the doctor said my tests indicated celiac. Bob’s Red Mill has so many gluten-free products, it made me feel better!
