Purple Oats

I actually slept in this morning until 7:30! Well… I woke up at 5, hugged Jason goodbye, and fell back asleep.

Once I was up, I had half a z-bar and headed to the gym for a speed workout. I’m not a huge treadmill fan, but it gets the job done when I need to be quick.

I ran 3.5 miles in about 31 minutes. I started at 6.0 for the first mile as a warm-up, and then jumped around ever 0.25 miles from 7.0 to 8.0, 6.5, 7.5… etc. for the rest of the workout. It felt great and I watched the news the whole time.

Once I got back, I was in a hurry. I have a dentist appointment in 20 minutes from now! I made oatmeal while I showered (benefit of microwaving!):


My oatmeal had:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 TBL flax
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • sprinkle of walnuts!


Once I mixed it up, it turned purple!


It tasted perfect! Such a good combination of flavors!

I’m off to the dentist. I have to get a small cavity filled. I’m like SUPER nervous because I hate the dentist. Last time I cried the whole way home when I found out I had to come back for this.  😦

    good luck girl!

  4. Breakfast of Champions…Oatmeal. It’s just that good

  5. Dentists use to be a walk in the park, until I had my mouth surgery and all went to hell. Now the scare the living daylights out of me, but I am convinced that my dentist tried to kill me. LoL.

    Great speedwork. I actually love doing this quick runs because the time seems to fly by. Not sure why, but the minutes just seem to go so quickly when I do these runs.

    Great refueling oats today. I love when the berries give the oats that pretty color and flavor.

    Hope you have an amazing day beautiful girl!
