Pre-Race Eats

Good afternoon everyone!! Only a couple hours away until the Workforce Challenge! Yay! And it is already really warm out, so I’ve been drinking water like a fiend!

Last night I made a breakfast cookie to have this morning. I kind of went overboard with the oats and added about 3/4 a cup. I usually only add about 1/2 a cup, but I saw some leftover oats in the bottom of the container and I wanted to use them all up. I think this is one of my favorite breakfasts…right underneath chocolate chip banana pancakes of course. But I figured this would be the perfect breakfast!

In my breakfast cookie

  • 3/4 cup of old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tbsp of almond butter
  • 2 tbsps of light soy milk
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1 small handful of dark chocolate chips

It was almost too much for me to eat, but I ate it all anyway. 🙂 Along with my breakfast cookie I made a small chocolate protien shake. I always use light soy milk in my shakes, as I don’t drink cow’s milk (I don’t care for the taste).

I also stuck to a pretty simple lunch today. Maybe more like a second breakfast. 🙂 I had some Special K protien cereal mixed with Special K red berries with a sprinkle of granola and fresh blueberries. And light soymilk of course. 

I also had an apple. For snack later I have a banana with dark chocolate dreams peanut butter and a luna bar.

I went on a short walk today on my break and then went to check out the farmer’s market down the street. It was pretty much just a flower and plant market, with a couple tables of baked goods. No produce yet. Its really great if you are looking for plants. Hopefully this weekend I will check out the Troy Market!

I would like to take a second to promote a new blog! Sarah, a good friend of mine, recently started a weight loss blog called Path to Succeed. So far she has lost 30 pounds and she’s still going strong! Check out her blog! 🙂

My next post should be my first race-recap! See you after the race!
