A blog about my journey as an athlete and a woman. Come step into her shoes...

On this day in History: Decmber 4th 1816 James Monroe of Virginia was elected the fifth president of the United States.

So last night as we were going to bed I made the decision not to go to spinning class this morning. I am going to do AKB tonight and I am still pretty sore from yesterdays run, got to listen to the body.

For breakfast I made a Bowl of SNOW:

the combo:

1/2 c oats
1/2 c water
1/2 c vanilla soy milk
1/2 sliced banana
handful of hemp seeds for protein
handful of crushed walnuts
1/8 nutty banana boom PROBAR
sprinkle of coconut (SNOW)
drizzle of agave nectar
and a spoonful of apple butter

with my peppermint mocha coffee and a shot of Monavie

This is my Last PROBAR:( I am going to be doing a contest for a PROBAR GIVEAWAY soon, so stay tuned.....

I decided not to run the Holiday Classic 15 k this year. I am kinda sad about it but at the same time I know its best. Its $40 dollars for this race I didn't realize that until yesterday, and we could use that to buy people we love gifts or shoot even donate the money. If the race was for a cause I might think about it but it's not. Also we have two party's on Saturday night and I don't want to worry about having to leave early because of the race on Sunday morning. So I decided that I will do my own 15k from my house on Sunday! I should have hubby make me a banner that says FINISH...lol...just kidding.

Well folks I am out here, I have a busy day ahead and I still have to mop and sweep the floors this morning for our couples study tonight! Have a Terrific Thursday!

Hi Bobbi!! Your breakfast looks great-I wanted to ask in regard to the coconut your sprinkled: do you actually taste it? I tried it ones on my porridge but it felt like the taste was lost somewhere in the bowl...

Love the picture of Bosco, what a cutie-patootie!

Good luck with your private one-lady race this weekend. I totally think you should get your husband to make a finish line poster!

Bosco is as adorable as ever. I bet him and Abbie would make such a cute doggie pair. ::

Love the "snow"! Ugm I hate when races are so expensive!! I too can justify it when it's for a cause, but over $25 just to run for no cause when I could just run on my own isn't worth it to me.

I love how you described your breakfast as a big bowl of snow :o) It looks yummy!

I like the idea of doing your own 15k - you should totally make a banner! I'm serious!! And have a big container of hot chocolate waiting for you at the end...go all out!
