9 WEEKS!

Sorry I was MIA this morning I was out running in the cold!

This is the first time this season that I had to bust out my long sleeves for a run! The run was so brisk and sweet, nice to run without the kiddos. Because we ran later in the morning I had to make breakfast at my desk, good thing I packed it last night :).

I made a delicious bowl of microwave oats (not as good as stove top). I added in half a nanner, soy milk, water, peanuts, and some wheat berries.

Lunch was a repeat, our fridge is SO EMPTY!!! I was challenging myself not to go to the market this week unless there was nothing else to make, were pretty close. 

I made another Flat Out Wrap topped with one light Laughing Cow Cheese and stuffed with a Masala Burger, Veggies, and Grapes.

And I had another bite of this cookie I got from a co-worker yesterday. I am hoping it lasts all week :).

I'm curious about the temperature you were running in. I'm running a half marathon Saturday at 8 AM. The high is 55 but I think it's going to be in the upper 40s when I run. I don't know what to wear??? Any input would be greatly appreciated. I only started running in March (in a gym at the time) and have never run outside in cold weather. Thank you thank you thank you.

Yeah, I would also like to know your definitely of cold! It's 51 degrees right now and expected to get down to 36 over night. Great weather for sweats and curling up to watch the Twins/Yankees game!

For not having much food in your fridge, your meal looks pretty darn good!

AMAZING looking wrap!

stove top oats are the best i agree!

Lizzy said...

Lauren said...

Oooo, long sleeve runs are beginning for me too! :( I'm not such a fan of running in the cold. Guess there is always the treadmill.

Have a great time with the hubz tonight and your Thai date.

I wore a jacket for the first time on a run yesterday. It felt good to have that chill in the air.

Tonight I went to yoga and now watching Glee while catching up on blogs.
