Happy WIAW! (AND first day of Lent!!)
This morning after sleeping in a little ( 🙂 ) I had a yummy pre-run snack of a banana and a mini Nutz Over Chocolate baby Luna bar (not shown). Then I ran a new 5.5 mile route that I stumbled upon over the weekend. Went pretty well but holy hills were some of the (many) hills steep! These views for sure made up for them though..
Such a pretty run!
Anywho, back to the eats! After my run, I sped home to my most recent favorite breakfast… my delicious oatmeal! I’m a notorious oatmeal-aholic and could literally eat this every meal of everyday!
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup water
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp brown sugar
Super easy and so yummy!! And the fact that I microwave the oats & water makes it that much easier (hehe).
Then, I snacked on some Back To Nature Vanilla Almond Agave granola. SO GOOD! I found this on my Whole Foods trip the other day and highly recommend it. I’m not a huge fan of really overwhelming flavors so the hint of vanilla & agave in this really hits the spot.
After running a few errands, I came home and wasn’t that hungry (the oatmeal keeps me full & energized for so long!) but I had some Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt spinach & kale greek yogurt dip with some crackers. If you haven’t had this, TRY IT. It is truly amazing!!
And that’s my WIAW so far! Not quite sure what’s in store for dinner so that didn’t make today’s post! Unfortunately my day won’t be topped off with a yummy dessert since today is the first day of Lent! I’m usually really bad about sticking to my Lent plans but this year I’m giving up sweets & junk (a little vague, I know..but bye bye girl scout cookies, you will be missed!) along with using my phone while driving! Not only is it illegal (or should I say strongly frowned upon?) but it’s a really bad habit- hopefully giving it up will help me kick it for good! And I’m even more hopeful that I can make it all 40 days!
Do you participate in Lent? And what are you giving up (if anything)?
