I did about 2 and a quarter miles today! I did a mile on the treadmill at the gym - with only one stop at 1/2 way for a few seconds. It felt good! Maybe that will help get things moving along. We dropped Nick off at the Y playzone and 30 minutes later they came to get me because he wouldn't stop crying. Aww.. it was his 3rd time there this week and I thought he was getting used to it (the other 2 days he seemed to enjoy it!) but today he wasn't into it. I got in the rest at home while Nick was napping.
Yesterday I took some almond/pecan/cashew butter + chia seeds + flaxseed + oatmeal and topped it with 'ice cream." I wanted something nut butterish and it was good! What's your take on uncooked oats? I wasn't sure if I should cook mu concoction in little balls. I've made chocolate protein 'ice cream' and strawberry protein 'ice cream' today and last night to go with oats, and I want to make this high protein "cake" at some point. The 'ice cream' makes a huge portion, is very refreshing and keeps you full for a while. I think I am going to order a chocolate and vanilla whey protein from Jay Robb. What's your favorite protein powder? Before I was using Aria (Trader Joe's sells it). Maybe once you start telling yourself this stuff is dessert, you don't need the real deal?
